Tyler Ninja Blevin’s a full time twitch steamer for luminosity gaming and sponsored by Red-Bull, making over 500k per month by entertaining his millions of subscribers.
Lets check out Ninja’s streaming set-up and why it helps him stay on top! Starting with the main equipment list then streaming and computer setup.
Ninja Main Setup
These are the more visible items on the gaming table, lets take a quick look then get to the details.
Ninja’s Webcam And Cameras
Ninja uses a webcam and 3x Blackmagic cameras around his RedBull stream room.
4k resolution for ultra high resolution. ‘Right light 3’ with HDR – So you will look good in every lighting It mounts well.
Ninja has 3 of these in his Red Bull Stream Room, records full 4k. With slots for dual CFast cards, meaning you can record for a long time without needing to stop to change cards when one is full.
Ninja’s Mouse – what he uses
We have two different Ninja Mice. The Logitech G502 and the Final Mouse Phantom. Lets discuss the the Logitech first.
It has the 16k Hero sensor, boasting 16k DPI (dots per inch) meaning this mouse is insanely accurate for gaming and not surprising that it is/was Ninja’s mouse of choice for Fortnight. Ninja’s Fortnite In-game Settings.
This mouse has an advanced optical sensor for accurate tracking and less lag, and capable 400+ IPS(inches per second) which means that this mouse can handle insanely fast reactions, needed for the high level fortnight players.
Ninja’s mouse has are adjustable weights, that you can position around the mouse for customisable weight distribution. How cool is that?!! 5x 3.6g weights that you can position how you like to customise the weight distribution of your mouse. It is 11 different buttons, that you can programme to do anything you need. Hyper fast scroll speed on the scroll wheel, made of metal and is as smooth as silk.
This little Ninja mouse is ultralight weighing only 67g, if you are a high sensitivity fortnight player then after a few games of fortnight your wrists are really going to appreciate it. The other main selling feature is the phantom cord, less drag and light weight.
FAQ: How much does ninja’s mouse weigh?
Final Mouse Phantom weighs 67g
Logitech G502 weighs 121g with customisable weights.
Ninja’s Computer Monitor
Ninja uses an Alienware AW2518H.
With a lightening 240Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time and almost no input lag it is a beast of monitor and is very capable for high speed gaming.
It has NVIDA G-Sync technology and custom AlienFX. And it looks pretty sexy in my opinion!
Ninja spreads some of these around his stream room to be clear on camera.
Ninja uses the Electro-voice RE20. You can see it very clearly in his Red Bull streaming room. And there is a second microphone on his setup, it looks like an Audio Technica dynamic microphone.
This device makes it easy to swing in out out the mic, as well as set it up nicely in the position you want while gaming. If you don’t have it in a good position, then your sound might be distant, have echos, reverb etc.
Remember bad sound is not tolerated by views, and they’ll quickly move on, you’d rather loose video quality than sound quality. So its worth having the full mic setup.
Ninja’s Groovy Headphones
The brand is on par with Sanheiser, thick leather headband, Microfibre head, super comfortable. Flexible and feels durable, aluminium support for the cups. Lightweight.
The ear-cups are the most interesting part, the grill type design, open style, noise leaking, no sound isolation. The 3m cable is not removable.
Ninja uses a Corsair K70 RAPIDFIRE
Ninja uses a Corsair K70 RAPIDFIRE
Quite expensive for a keyboard, over 100 bucks. Aluminium frame, 3 step brightness button. Textured WASD keys and space bar. Lets check out some of the details…
Keys require less travel and less pressure, the switch actuation at 1.2 mm – instead of 2mm as with their other model and 46g of pressure required to press the keys. This means you save a few milliseconds, that may be the difference against good players and when you get down to the last 10 in fortnight.
Also the renounce of the key is super quick, This gives you that extra edge and speed, especially when you need to hit the same key multiple times.
Claiming 100% anti-ghosting, aircraft grade aluminium used on the key switches. Players using this keyboard also report their hands being less tired because it doesn’t require as much effort to hit the keys.
Other useful features of the keyboard
Height adjustment in the front and the back Volume wheel, Windows lock button Soft touch detachable wrist rest The font is quite large on the keys but I think that is to let the coloured lights glow through
Only 1 thing really, It has a big thick cable, positioned slightly off centre to the left from the back. A bit annoying if you like to keep your cables easily discreet.
Ninja’s Mouse Pad
He uses the Hyper X Fury Pro Mouse Mat. These mats are designed for precision and speed, so their mat fibres are tight and have a high quality-control stopping annoying fraying that causes lag.
It is pretty stylish and coming in a range of sizes.
The underside is a rubber honeycomb structure, supper sticky and anti slide, so it doesn’t move about and mess up your game.
Ninja’s Sound Amplifier
Positive for gaming – scout mode – you can use it to amplify footsteps and background noise giving you a tactical advantage.
You will hear much more detail with the creative sound blaster, so if you are interested in being a fortnight pro like Ninja, then you should definitely look have something like this in your setup.
Matt finish, stylish and doesn’t get fingerprint marks like shiny finishes do. Looks like it is out of star-wars, has a very ‘Empire’ look. Three holes
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- 1/4 inch headphone jack
- And 3.5 microphone jack
You can use both headphone jacks at the same time Small downside, there is no visual indicator for volume, so you have check on your computer.
Ninja Computer Setup
Like most streamers, he has two setups so that the power drain from one doesn’t affect the other. What you don’t want when you are down to the last 5 on Fortnite.
Computer is powered by an Intel Core I9 – 7940X Processor that is perfect for the intensive and resource gameplay of fort nite, and other games, that you need a high number of frames per second to have your game movement fluid enough.
The EVGA GEFORCE RXT 2080 graphics card, it has next to no latency when playing super fast, resource draining games.
