At just 24 years old, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev is already one of the greats in CS:GO. Since 2018, he has made the top two on HLTV’s list of the year’s best players, a raw display of the consistency and stunning impact he has had over the years.
The Ukrainian player has also dabbled in Valorant, Riot Games’ new tactical shooter. The Major and Intel Grand Slam winner may have unironically criticized Valorant for being too “simple,” but he still streams the game from time to time.
In a recent Twitch stream, the NAVI star flashed his ranked history on screen and his string of match MVPs. As it turns out, he’s only been playing one agent in ranked — Chamber, possibly Valorant’s most overpowered agent.
S1mple is a Chamber main
“When I pick an agent, I pick Chamber every time,” said s1mple, who goes by the moniker Levi Ackerman in Valorant, a reference to the Attack on Titan captain.
Chamber has been the most dominant agent in the pro meta. In the VCT NA Stage 2 Challengers group stage and playoffs, he was the most-played agent with an 80 percent pick rate, where he is picked on nearly every map.
As one of the most feared aimers in CS:GO, and a beast on Counter-Strike’s AWP sniper rifle, Chamber may just be the perfect agent for the NAVI star. The French sentinel is one of the strongest agents on the Operator in Valorant, thanks to his ability to go for the early peek and then teleport out.
His Tour De Force ultimate is also literally a fast-firing sniper rifle, a deadly weapon in the hands of the NAVI player.
And despite playing Valorant only casually, the CS:GO superstar still ended Episode 4 Act III in Immortal 2.
