Overview of skins used by NiP’s friberg

July 4, 2016 - Esports

You don’t have to be the best player on your team to be liked and paid attention to more than your better ranked teammates. While I will cover the skins used by Ninjas in Pyjamas, the size of a player’s fanbase is one of the main criteria when deciding which player’s skins to discuss next. With 89k facebook likes and 185k followers on twitter, friberg is the third most popular player on NiP so he’s the third to have his skins looked at.

This swedish CS:GO veteran usually plays as an entry fragger, which slightly explains his 0.92 HLTV rating. Also, knowing that he should constantly be in firefights, I expect him to use many different weapons, letting us see more skins than we get from some other miserable scrooges who have only their most used weapons skinned. Yes, I’m looking at you, n0thing.

If you follow this article series, you might have noticed that players usually fall into three categories according to the skins they like to use: StatTrak fanatics, nostalgic Souvenir lovers, or badass muthaf… dudes, who aren’t really too concerned with that stuff either way. Friberg is one of the latter. He does have a couple of StatTrak skins, however, the rest are simple. For convenience’s sake, here’s the list of all skins I noticed friberg use, while watching his ECS matches. To see more info, like what the skin looks like, for example, click the weapon name.
