Counter-Strike Wall Hacker Gets Knifed in Head

Cheating in games is something people don’t take too lightly. People will get reported or ultimately banned for cheating. It’s simple — no one likes a cheater.  Recently at an internet cafe in China, someone didn’t take too kindly to be cheated and took things a little way too far.

That has to hurt

At an internet cafe in the northern province of Jilin in China, a group of kids noticed that the 17 year old they had been playing Counter-Strike against was using wall hacks. An argument then began between the 17 year old and group of kids which ultimately led to a very violent end. The 17 year old was stabbed in the head with a 30cm knife. The group responsible for the attack fled the scene immediately after stabbing the victim.

The 17 year old boy was rushed to a hospital where he miraculously lived. Doctors operated immediately and removed the knife from his skull after 10 hours of surgery. The doctors say that the blade missed major arteries and failed to impair the boys motor control. They did note the blade was rusty and the boy is now under observation in case rust fragments cause any sort of problems.

The internet cafe where the attack took place did not require people to have ID, making it very popular among the local kids. This also doesn’t help anyone with catching the people who stabbed someone in the head with a knife. You can bet when they catch the kids responsible, it’s not going to end well for them.

      Well, they could also just make computers have tazers in them. So if someone cheat, it tazes them in the balls. Killing or Trying to kill people is wrong no matter what if you ask me. But a good swift Taze to the balls? No harm in that

    so now if I meet this kid online, and hes pulling head-shots through the walls, I’ll know theres a couple of 1337 doctors in China I can blame

    You know this dude won’t cheat again, lol. What I wanna know where did this knife come from? The person who stabbed him must have had some rage to get it that deep into his skull, god damn.

    There is one reason I dislike cheating. You’ll never see a knife in my head from it…

    I think we’re missing some of the point here.
    He frickin survived! Cheats ftw?
    It’s weird that after being stabbed in the head the thing you worry about the most is how rusty the blade is.

    Isn’t counter strike from like ten years ago? Are people still playing that crap?

    • Kreyg March 24, 2010 at 13:27 - Reply

      yeah, A LOT of people still play that game for some reason.

    This kind of crap really pisses me off, 5 years ago i might have said that he had it coming, but people have to realize games are fucking games and aren’t that serious. This guy’s karma just went a bit overzealous when it came back around i guess.

    This is what happens when you reenact your fave knife throws of MW2

  26. Sohlman March 22, 2010 at 20:07 - Reply

    This type of stuff just makes me mad. People need to realize that it’s just a game. So what if the kid hacked the game. It’s not real life, get over it, you don’t just go stab somebody.

  27. Radar38 March 22, 2010 at 19:47 - Reply

    Why would those kids do that. So what if he hacked, they had no right to stab him. Those kids are going to be in serious trouble.

    Enact Hammurabi’s code on them, see if they survive. Hope the dude doesn’t have too many complications.

  33. Luigi353 March 22, 2010 at 19:20 - Reply

    its kids like this that make video games seem bad and evil to some people. i would’ve probably told him to stop hacking but not stab him. video games are fake real people aren’t it seems like these kids didn’t know the difference.

  34. Sira187 March 22, 2010 at 19:20 - Reply

    OMG! This is an epic story. Honestly, I can’t say I feel sorry for the kid since he was using cheats but I do hope the police are able to arrest the attackers. Hopefully this story gets spread around so it makes people think twice before cheating.

    that kid is extremely lucky and should be greatful his worthless life is still intact. video games are supposed to be fun and played with skill and practice not with hacks and cheats. violence is never the answer but i admit that i have felt like punching a kid in the face who cheats online in modern warfare 2 but using a weapon on a defenseless person is just as cowardess as using the cheats

    Damn, that’s just crazy. I do admit he shouldn’t have been cheating, but thank goodness he’s fine.

    Good god this man is one luck guy. I don’t know how many people take a 12 inch knife to the head and live, he should be counting his lives left after this one. People these days overreact over the littlest things, and this is the result.

  45. Rocker2791 March 22, 2010 at 13:03 - Reply

    Well, I bet he’ll never use hax in a public place again. Thank god he survived. Imagine if people got stabbed over the care package glitch. Half of the MW2 community would be gone.

    • heavenshallburn March 22, 2010 at 15:14 - Reply

      half!? more like 90% of people in mw2 either care package glitch,boosted their 10th prestige or have a friend tac insert to help them get a nuke. there is no skill needed to do anything in that game.

    I have the strangest feeling that people who say video games are bad for kids are going to jump on this and use it in courts and whatnot.

  51. jmillz22 March 22, 2010 at 10:59 - Reply

    OMG WTF first question is how did they get into the cafe with a 30cm rusty knife? The second is what is the punishment for these kids if they caught? I think they should be executed because this is fucked up.

      I meant to say if there caught*

    • Peter Kazakoff March 23, 2010 at 00:00 - Reply

      Considering this happened in mainland China, which has the death penalty for so much as sneezing the wrong way, they likely will if caught. The Chinese aren’t big on life imprisonment, although if the attacker was under 18 that’ll probably be the route as the UN forced China to suspend all youth executions.

    I agree, thats just totally messed.

    I dont think thats a tatoo, I’m pretty sure the doctors shaved his head and then drew on it to mark out where to cut (or where not to), and to just give themselves some general guidelines.
