Video: The rise of hallzerk

To commemorate Håkon "⁠hallzerk⁠" Fjærli's rise to becoming one of the most exciting young AWPers of today, HLTV.org's moviemaker Marcos "protounz" Soares produced a highlight reel of the Norwegian's best plays.

As one of the biggest prospects to come out of Scandinavia in recent times, hallzerk has been on the tip of people's tongues for a while now, first finding international recognition with Norway's No.1 team Nordavind before a high-profile signing to Dignitas earlier this year officially brought him into the limelight.

From his time with the local side in 2018-2019 to the first five months with the Swedish royalty so far, here is 'The rise of hallzerk' story, told largely from the Norwegian youngster's scoped point of view:

He has time.This was actually his best option. He is spending his time playing under no pressure , having freedom and taking experinse from literal legends of the game. This is the best way for him to grow as a player.

His aim looks like that of an expert bot from CSS, extremely high crosshair acceleration and precision. It's as if his crosshair is a magnet that accelerates and snaps onto the iron pinheads of the enemy players.

The fragmovie is AMAZING! It is so incredibly smooth, havent seen a fragmovie like this since the early days of Makku! Added to that it is just unreal how freaking calm hallzerk is considering he is only 19 years old and playing with so little experience against these top teams now... it seems like he just doesnt have any nerfs!
2020-06-04 18:30
Despite the shitty music this was actually enjoyable
2020-06-04 20:25
Honestly nothing been already seen. 90% easy kills 0 flickshots. The awpers scene is so high than he appears as a good player nothing more. The video edit is amazing

Really like the editing style, not really favorite frags but as far as editing goes this is the best I've seen. Hate it when edits make it jump near the frag so you don't get to actually see the aimstyle properly.
