Spencer "Hiko" Martin (born March 6, 1990) is an American professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player who most recently played for Team Liquid. He rose into prominence when his team finished third place in the first major CS:GO tournament at ESWC 2012 with the former Area 51. He is mostly known for his lurking, solo site play, and clutching ability.

Information[edit]

Early Life[edit]

When he was young, he was an avid football, hockey and baseball player but due to a hockey injury he was unable to play sports for a summer allowing him to dedicate significant time to gaming. Starting off with the Nintendo 64, he eventually moved over to computer games playing anything he could get his hands on. Hiko has mostly funneled his competitive gaming into CS with 1.5, 1.6 and CS:GO. He got into CS through one of his friends brothers which ended up making his whole group of friends play this game.
