Overview of skins used by NiP’s f0rest

July 1, 2016 - Esports

For a long time, Nip’s f0rest was in the shadow of his more famous teammate, GeT_RiGhT. With recent performances, however, f0rest is pulling ahead, so we decided to see which skins are his favorite. Who knows, maybe the secret to mad skillz lies in the skinz. (Spoiler Alert: it doesn’t.)

Looking at f0rest’s skins, I was struck by a great sense of irony. With a name like f0rest, you wouldn’t think that most of his skins would have something to do with the color red, which symbolizes fire. Let’s just say that f0rest doesn’t seem to be agreeable to the cause of Green Peace. Starting with pistols, he uses USP-S | Kill Confirmed, like a lot of pros I’ve seen. As a bonus, the skin does contain a fair amount of red, no StatTrak, though, as will be a common theme through all of f0rest’s skins. His Glock-18 | Grinder is not that popular among the pros. P250 | Crimson Kimono continues the the of fire, together with Desert Eagle | Blaze. Just before the streak had a chance to get started, f0rest dashed my hopes once again by using CZ75-Auto | Victoria for some reason.

I got happy once again when I saw his M4A1-S | Hot Rod and M4A4 | Howl skins, though the effect was lessened after seeing him use SSG 08 | Big Iron, Galil AR | Eco, FAMAS | Styx (which, to be fair, does have SOME red), and AK-47 | Case Hardened. I would have cried like a ten year old who didn’t get to play Minecraft for a minute, however, I started happy-dancing a little bit after f0rest pulled out an AWP | Dragon Lore. I can’t get enough of that skin!

To make it better, f0rest also had UMP-45 | Blaze and MAG-7 | Heat, though I got disappointed once again by his MAC-10 | Neon Rider. How hard is it to stay on theme? Doesn’t matter, at least the crazy Swede had Gut Knife | Rust Coat and Karambit | Slaughter to make up for it!
