In the third round, FaZe responded with a win, and then SAW's Ricardo "roman" Oliveira pulled off a 1v3 clutch in a post-plant situation to pull one back, breaking FaZe Clan's economy and winning another two rounds in a row to make the score 5-1.

With sides switching in the second half, SAW was now on the CTs, and FaZe Clan took barely took the pistol round. SAW then decided to force-buy into the 14th round, getting eager to close out the map, but that didn't work out, as FaZe won two T rounds in a row.

FaZe Clan pushed their advantage, securing multiple buy rounds in a row to shut down SAW's push and make the score 10-8, with FaZe Clan still trailing, but Danish legend Finn "karrigan" Andersen's calls being incredibly on-point.

SAW recovered, showing their big match temperament and breaking FaZe's 7-round streak to win the 20th round and make it 11-9 in their favor before FaZe Clan pulled one back to make it 12-10.

With some insane plays from Håvard "Rain" Nygaard, including a 4-kill in the 23rd round, FaZe Clan pulled it back to force overtime as the regulation score ended 12-12.

On Inferno, SAW again got off to a fantastic start, claiming the pistol round on the CT side and following up with a conversion to take a 2-0 lead before David "frozen" Čerňanský popped off with three headshots to lock in a round for FaZe Clan.

SAW pulled one back despite frozen's heroics, and then FaZe Clan won the next round in a back-and-forth affair on Inferno before SAW was forced into a double eco in the 6th round.

As the gun rounds kicked in again, FaZe Clan won two 2v4 situations in a row, making it 12-5 and pushing all the right buttons to dominate SAW on the T side. Despite SAW's best efforts, FaZe easily finishes the second map (13-5) and thereby wins the series 2-0.
