Swedish CSGO Pro Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg set a new record in the game as he has now amassed over 40,000 kills in professional play. f0rest achieved this record during a game between Dignitas and 9z Team at ESL Challenger in February 2022. Although dignitas lost the game, f0rest had 55 frags in the 3 map series, which brought his tally from 39,999 to 40,054.
f0rest has been playing CSGO professionally ever since its launch in 2012. Before that f0rest was a legendary name in the CS 1.6 and the original Counter Strike days, starting his career back in 2003. During his 1.6 days he played for big names such as SK Gaming and Fnatic and won multiple Counter Strike Majors.
After moving to CSGO in 2012, f0rest represented legendary org Ninjas in Pajamas for 7 years from 2012 to 2019. f0rest, along with former teammate GeT_RiGhT, is widely regarded as one of the best players of his time with so many accolades to his name. f0rest and GeT_RiGhT formed one of the longest partnerships of all time in Counter Strike. Their first stint of partnership lasted 3,902 days, from the time GeT_RiGhT joined Fnatic on January 19, 2009, to when he stepped down from NiP on September 26, 2019.

They then reunited on Dignitas in January 2020, but GeT_RiGhT was benched in September, while f0rest is still going strong at the age of 33. f0rest’s consistency and longevity at this age and the ability to keep up with players a lot younger than him is admirable as a lot of players from his time have either retired or are unable to keep up, yet f0rest keeps going.
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE F0REST TO GET TO 40,000+ CSGO KILLS?
f0rest started playing CSGO back in 2012 and has played the game professionally for almost 10 years now. f0rest has played 2040 maps in CSGO and got his 40,000th kill in his 2040th map. If we crunch the numbers, f0rest averaged about 19.63 kills every map, which is no mean feat at the highest level of CS. To this day f0rest maintains a rating of 1.11 with a K/D ratio of 1.17. f0rest re-signed with Dignitas for the 2022 CSGO season and will stay with them for another year, and has shown no signs of slowing down.
