Kika ‘xirilikika’ Martins has gone viral with her impressive CS:GO skills as she blows away the competition using just one hand.
A one-handed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) player has gone viral with her impressive skills climbing up the ranks of the first-person shooter. While there are plenty of us who struggle to play CS:GO with two hands, Kika "xirilikika" Martins is slaying the competition with just one hand. The 22-year-old streamer has been wowing with her Twitch channel
Kika had a stroke when she was younger, leaving 60% of her body disabled - including her left hand. Despite this, Kika has overcome the challenge and learned to do nearly everything with her right hand. Among her many day-to-day tasks, CS:GO is a favourite pastime. Her mission was to be "independent and autonomous" while making sure her disability wouldn't stop her sharing her skills with the world.

Over on Reddit, a clip titled "I was playing against a one-handed woman and this happened" has gone viral. In the short clip, Kika performed an impressive Deagle jump shot and seamless MP9 spray. She used her keyboard to jump and then quickly flipped to her mouse - winning the round. With both trick shots taking place within five seconds, it proves Kika doesn't let only being able to use her right hand get in her way.
Looking closer at Kika's gameplay, it becomes a little clearer at just how skillful she is. Kika uses the fingers on her right hand to control the standard WASD keys and her forearm to move the mouse. The big moment comes as she quickly flips between keys and then grabs the mouse when she clocks an opponent. In the comments, fans suggested she get a mouse with multiple buttons, but for the time being, Kika says she's happy with her setup.
Kika's Twitch bio reads, "A 22-year-old female girl disabled on the left side, who spends her life overcoming the obstacles she faces, one of them, playing CS, every day".

Kika's latest feat reminds us of when AbleGamers COO Steven Spohn grabbed his first Fall Guys win using just his head. Despite his Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Spohn used a modified hat controller and infrared sensors to climb to the top of Fall Mountain. Both Spohn and Martins aren't letting anything get in their way.
Despite her clear talent, Kika is still relatively new to CS:GO and says she's not as good as she could be. Still, she says she makes up for this by providing entertainment. With her streaming on a daily basis, and after going viral, it's unsurprising that Kika's subscribers have gone through the roof. At the time of writing, she has just under 10k followers.
