The Deadliest Headshot In Counter-Strike History

This entry, could have easily go by some other title: For example, "Alleged Hacker Got Hacked At, Literally", "Cheaters Never Prospers And Will Get Stabbed At", "Can You See Through Wall Now With That Knife In Your Head?" ... So on and forth, you get the idea.

The lesson that every self-respecting gamer (and Counter-Strike fanatics around the world, in particular) should pick up from this gruesome piece of news is: Counter-Strike players can get very serious with their game. Dead serious, in fact.

On a more serious note, having picked this up for the always entertaining, and occasionally very much informative Kotaku, it struck me that having two ridiculously true and tragic incidents (there's one even more tragic posted earlier) that have its roots coming from gaming fanaticism does not bode well for the gaming industry.

Back to the news at hand:

An argument between Counter-Strike players at a Chinese net café over suspected use of a 'wallhack' cheat led to a 17-year-old boy being stabbed through the head with a foot-long knife - and living to tell the tale.

Counter-Strike players in the Jilin province of China take cheating extremely seriously, as evidenced by the grievous wound suffered by one suspected cheater on March 16. The 17-year-old victim was suspected of using a hack that allowed him to see through walls, giving him an obvious benefit in the computerized game of hide and go kill each other.

A fight broke out outside the net café regarding the hack, and one assailant decided to do a little hacking of his own, stabbing large knife into the side of the cheater's head, the tip of the blade barely protruding from the other side.

The boy, miraculously still conscious, was rushed to a nearby hospital. After around 10 hours of surgery, the knife was successful removed. The boy survived, but is under observation in case bits of rust - did we mention the blade was rusty? - flaked off inside his brain.

So how does someone survive a foot-long knife through the skull? According to doctors, the blade missed major arteries, which kept him from hemorrhaging, and managed to somehow avoid affecting motor skills even though the blade passed through areas that handle those functions.

Oh, and the doctor who operated on the young man had commented that the chances of surviving such a wound were one in ten thousand. So for those persistent on utilizing the 'wallhack' mode, do consider that
