Pistol kills Pick'Em - Who to choose?

With day 2 wrapped up we turn our head towards the quarter-finals where another Pick'Em Challenge awaits. This time pistol kills are the stat to guess, so let's see which players top that category.

After an impossible task on day 1 with the headshot percentage guessing challenge, second day possibly saw more correct picks as most of the players on top had at least above average first kill stats in their career, and all but one played two maps.

In group E it was CLG teammates James "hazed" Cobb and Stephen "reltuC" Cutler with 8 first kills each, in group F Kinguin's Håvard "rain" Nygaard and Dennis "dennis" Edman with 10, group G Aleksi "allu" Jalli and Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill with 6 and in group H Vadim "DavCost" Vasilyev with 10.

For day 3 – when the quarter-finals will take place – the task is to guess which player will have the most pistol kills in each of the series.

What falls under pistol kills?

While some will incorrectly assume that the Pick'Em Challenge might refer to pistol round kills, it is kills with any and all pistols throughout the entire match that will count.

That means: Glock, Deagle, USP, P2000, P250, Fiveseven, CZ-75, Tec-9, Dual Berettas

We compiled a list of career averages, major and current event averages in that stat:

We hope this list above will help you on your road to the Gold trophy, while prior to the final day you will be left on your own to search through our stats section and look up player kill/death ratios.

Nevertheless, as usual we will help you keep track of the stats for the Pick'Em Challenge on our dedicated page here

2015-08-22 02:16
Its only the awpers man. They get more pistol kills through out the game
2015-08-22 02:27
Don't tell them :/ Yeah, best pistol players are awpers / secondary awpers. Guardian, shox, f0rest, kennys, device, cajunb, allu, jw, and olof
2015-08-22 02:32
what about fallen?
2015-08-22 03:35
don't know much about the players from SA, but stats say that he is not so good with pistol. Fer and coldzera are the best from lg

Take some player from NaVi, they will be forced to eco a lot.

yo Tgwri1s, since this is fox's 1st and only major, how are the numbers in Pistol kills per round (majors) and the Pistol kills per round (cologne 2015) different? Same thing for Cold :< Am I missing something?

2015-08-22 10:44
Does anyone know who got the most pistol kills in the first quarter final nV vs NaVi? It still isnt done on the Pick Em page.
2015-08-22 15:42
Zeus But who won the TSM - Kinguin?
2015-08-22 17:41
I'm around 80% sure it was device
2015-08-22 18:06
would be nice if the stats page actually got fucking updated
2015-08-22 17:10
+1 fucking awful from HLTV...hasn't been updated for 7 hours LOL
2015-08-22 19:51
yeah.. so bad
2015-08-22 20:32
We could not get the data any sooner, it is updated now..
2015-08-22 20:33
Yea I've already seen it. Thanks a lot man. Sry for the rage haha my ingame watch tab wasn't working either and that was too much for me at once.
2015-08-22 20:43
ofc i would see this after tsm/kinguin match. device was an obvious choice and he won w/ 13 kills. I hope forest and flusha can bring it home on my other picks.
2015-08-22 19:45
