Stewie2K is one of the most well-known Counter-Strike and VALORANT players in North America.

The 25-year-old cemented himself as one of the five North American players to come back against FaZe Clan in the final of the ELEAGUE Boston CS:GO Major 2018. It’s the only CS:GO Major that was won by a North American squad and with Counter-Strike 2 on the horizon and the last CS:GO Major concluded, this won’t change.

After triumphing with Cloud9 in Boston, Stewie2K moved to SK Gaming, MIBR, and Team Liquid. He won a couple of trophies with the latest, securing Intel Grand Slam season two in the meantime. Liquid became the second team to win the Intel Grand Slam title the fastest, getting their hands on the prize after only 63 days.

After months of ups and downs, Stewie2K retired from Counter-Strike and transferred to VALORANT in July 2022 to become a full-time content creator. But when CS2 was announced on March 22, the American shared that he was “ready to grind” again. So, chances are, we’ll see him again on the server once the game comes out this summer.

Here’s Stewie2K’s full list of video, mouse, crosshair, and viewmodel settings in CS:GO.
