The second confrontation of group B started on the Dust 2 map, which, as expected, became the choice of the German team. However, BIG immediately had problems, as the opponent showed excellent preparation. As a result, the Outsiders players managed to convert half of the defense, getting a comfortable advantage - 9:6. The change of sides did not help the German team in any way, which, having lost the pistol series, quickly let the opponent go forward and was unable to do anything. In turn, the Outsiders played confidently in attack and took the lead in the series — 16:9.

Next, the teams moved to the Inferno map, which became the choice of the Outsiders. At the same time, the Russian team showed a convincing start in the attack, having actually resolved all the issues regarding the winner of the match in advance - 9:6. After switching sides, the Outsiders won the fourth pistol round, finally killing any intrigue. At the same time, BIG was no longer able to show its game, thereby allowing the opponent to get the first victory in the championship — 16:11.
