Rasmus "Gux" Ståhl is a Swedish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player and former Counter-Strike: 1.6 player.

During his time in Counter-Strike 1.6, he was most known for his time in Fnatic despite having three different stints with the team, the most notable achievement was winning IEM III, two months after first joining Fnatic.

He was first brought into Fnatic after Oscar" Archi" Torgersen's retirement, along with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund whom had joined following Oskar "ins" Holm's retirement. Gux's first stint with Fnatic had ended in January 2010, where he was replaced by Björn "THREAT" Pers and so Gux moved to H2k Gaming before eventually moving to SK Gaming. After his short stint with SK, he had finally made his second stint with Fnatic, replacing THREAT. Gux had stayed with Fnatic until the end of the year, when GeT_RiGhT and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg both made the move over to SK Gaming themselves. After Gux's second departure, he had enjoyed a spot on LIONS for six months before returning to Fnatic for the last and longest time until retiring from Fnatic and from Counter-Strike.

Gux's retirement from Counter-Strike 1.6 had come on Saturday, 23rd June 2012, Fnatic had announced the Swede's retirement from both the organization and from Counter-Strike 1.6 following an interview.[1]. It was also mentioned that the decision to retire was made shortly after former in-game leader, Patrik "cArn" Sättermon had announced his retirement from Counter-Strike. HLTV had also mentioned that Gux chose to make his return to school to study engineering, he was also very good at League of Legends at the time and if he were to return to eSports then he would most likely play for Fnatic's League of Legends lineup.

In June of 2017, HLTV had announced Gux's return to the Counter-Strike scene as he was found playing with two of the younger ex-Dark Passage players, Özgür "woxic" Eker and Muhammed "mini" Salman, as well as former teammate Faruk "pita" Pita, finished off by Martin "percy" Wessel. The team were previously expected to play in ESEA Season 25: Premier Division - Europe under the name of ex-Dark Passage, however they renamed themselves to Gux & Friends following Gux's comeback.

After a poor season in ESEA Premier, the team had been relegated down to the Main division, resulting in the team disbanding. woxic and Issa "ISSAA" Murad being acquired by HellRaisers not long after. Gux had since made his way over to Blank following Mattias "Snajdan" Andersen's return to Counter-Strike, also consisting of Mathias "pauf" Köhler, Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström and Daniel "t3h f4rm3r" Börzsönyi.
