This article will give you a run through of what settings Ninja has and the equipment he uses! Feel free to follow the links if you’re interested in buying the same products that the pro owns himself.
Ninja is well known in the gaming community for being part of the Luminosity Gaming team. He is also known for his popular Twitch stream as well as his time on teams such as Cloud9, Team Liquid and Warriors
Ninja has grown in the past few months whilst showing his talent through the game Fortnite. He is likeable, easy to watch and entertaining. I’m sure if someone is a talented as he is, people would love to know what settings he uses and the equipment he uses to optimise his gameplay. He has even hosted his own tournament where top players competed against each other and Ninja.
You want to play to the best of you ability, right? So why not follow our guide to Ninja’s setup, we are going to traverse through a range of topics that will tell you exactly what Ninja’s settings are, what equipment he uses and his keybinds.
Monitor – Alienware AW2518H
This monitor is amongst the top quality for competitive gamers, it has a 1ms response time making it so fast, you’ll see things happen before they actually do! This kind of monitor is made specifically for gaming. This monitor will give you an incredibly immersive experience and give you further vision.
- 24.5-inch TN Gaming Monitor
- 1 ms response time
- Full HD 1920 x 1080
- 240 Hz refresh rate
- NVidia G-Sync integrated
Mouse – Logitech G502
The logitech G502 has 11 programmable buttons. How do you think Ninja builds so fast whilst also being able to shoot fast after building? Having full use of your hand that is planted on the mouse for aiming allows you to make use of the unused real estate that are your fingers.
Having your left hand planted on the keyboard, and having to worry about which number/letter corresponds to which inventory slot, plus having to worry about which is which building piece! Adding keybinds to your mouse is essential to become a pro player. It uses an optical sensor for precise movement registration with a polling rate of 1000Hz.
Headset – Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro
This headset isn’t your traditional gaming headset. It is made for professional mixing. Being that it was manufactured for the music industry where the people wearing them in a recording studio know A LOT about audio. Ninja must know what he’s looking for when searching for a new piece of equipment to take on.
Keyboard – Corsair K70
This mechanical keyboard is top of the range for gaming PCs. It has an incredibly low response time and uses the Cherry MX Speed gaming key switches. These provide a bounce time of less that one millisecond.
Mousepad – HyperX Fury S Pro
Ninja uses the HyperX Fury S Pro mousepad, extra large. If you’re not looking to spend £30 on a mousepad, then maybe try one of the different sizes.
Chair – MAXNOMIC custom chair
Now, Ninja’s char was custom made for him during his time playing for Evil Geniuses. So unfortunately you guys can’t buy the same char. But what we recommend is the DXRacer Drifting Series. These chairs are made specifically for gamers, with padded armrests, reclining capabilities and a high neck/head support. There’s a few different colours to choose from but we warn you now, they are not cheap!
Microphone – Audio-Technica 20 Series AT2035
Every streamer/YouTuber needs a microphone to be able to interact with their audience. Using a PC’s built in microphone may not suffice and give the quality of sound that viewers will be happy to listen to.
This studio microphone has a large diaphragm and a high quality capsule with a cardioid pickup pattern. This means that it will predominantly pick up sound from the front of the microphone and significantly reduce noise from the sides and back.
The sensitivity that Ninja uses is quite low compared to your typical gamer. PC gamers don’t need to have such a high sensitivity as they can pick up the mouse and move it across the mousepad for more space to look around. Where you compare it to a console, once you move that analog stick, you need to hold it there until you are looking the direction that you want to.
- In-game sensitivity: 0.08
- Zoom sensitivity: 0.40
- Aim Down Sights (ADS) sensitivity: 0.60
- DPI/CPI: 800
- Polling rate: 1000Hz
