The best Brazilian CS:GO teams of 2022

One of the first countries that comes to mind when talking about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive esports is Brazil. This year maybe they didn't have the best year in their history, but many strong Brazilian teams are still making a name for themselves.

Today, we will take a look at the 2022 performances of the best Brazilian teams according to the HLTV ranking dated July 4, 2022.

5. paiN Gaming

We start our list with paiN Gaming, known as one of the legendary Brazilian teams, which has been present in the CS:GO esports since 2012. 2022 may not have been the best year for them, but they still took part in many tournaments and successfully represented their country.

They came quite close to attending the PGL Major Antwerp 2022. If they could have made it to the top 6 at PGL Major Antwerp 2022: American RMR, they would have been included in the Major from Contender Status but finished seventh.

They qualified for BLAST Premier: Spring American Showdown 2022 by placing first at Ace North American Masters: Spring 2022. There they also took first place, beating FURIA Esports in the final.

PaiN Gaming's other two major achievements this year are the ESEA Cash Cup: North America - Spring 2022 #5 and the ESL Challenger League Season 41: North America championship.

They also appeared at BLAST Premier: Spring Finals 2022 but were eliminated in the group stage. They are currently ranked #30 on HLTV.

4. 00 Nation

Founded in September 2021, 00 Nation made a radical change in its roster on June 30. GODSENT's TACO, latto, dumau, cky and adr joined 00 Nation's roster. Considering the success of these players in GODSENT, we can predict that 00 Nation will be a quite successful team.

We are yet to see what they will achieve with the new roster, but they haven't had much success this year. They were eliminated in the group stage of ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia 2022. They are the 29th strongest team as of July 4, according to HLTV.
