The first weapon round opened up with Sergey "⁠keshandr⁠" Nikishin two kills and the Russian team closed it out to make it 4-0. Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon got an entry kill in the following round and his quad kill sealed the round for G2. The French team had four comfortable rounds afterwards and took the lead to make it 5-4 in their favor.
