Gambit picked Dust 2 but weren’t competitive on that map. FaZe seized an early advantage on the CT side from the beginning of the first half.

FaZe decided to play Inferno, and it was a much more difficult game for them. Gambit won comfortable 8 rounds on the CT side. However, after the sides switched, FaZe didn’t give a chance to the CIS team, winning the map 16-11.

FaZe enter the semifinal to face Heroic, while Gambit leave the event taking 5-6th.
