Richard "Xizt" Landström (born February 22, 1991) is a Swedish professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive coach and former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike player.

He reunited with his old teammates Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, Adam "friberg" Friberg and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson under Dignitas' first lineup in January 2020, only to be later benched in September of the same year.
