Ninja’s Twitch Gaming Setup: The $50,000 Gaming Rig…

Ninja is one of the most popular Twitch streamers on the planet. But what kind of setup and tech does Ninja use for his Twitch streams? Let’s find out…

Ninja isn’t just a gamer, he’s an institution.

He holds more records than any other streamer online and has amassed an army of followers (15 million and counting), and was named #1 in Forbes’ 30 Most Important People In Gaming Under 30.

He’s played Fortnite with Drake, spoken on TV and podcasts, and has even been a guest on both The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer series.

He’s also a millionaire multiple times over and he has done all of this simply by playing games online. Ninja started on Twitch in 2011, left in 2019, returned shortly thereafter and is still going strong in 2023.

But what gear does Ninja use for his Twitch streams?

As you’d expect, quite a lot of Ninja’s rig is custom built. But he does use a range of widely available peripherals and equipment too, as you can see below.

How Much Does All This Cost?

Ninja is loaded from his exploits online and, because of his god-like status amongst gamers, tech companies fall over backwards to get him to use their latest products.

Like any online influencer, Ninja gets sent loads of free tech. And he’s talked about this plenty of times. But he also stated that, most of the time, he tends to buy all his own gear, as he likes to stay on top of the latest trends.

So how much would it cost to build a streaming setup like Ninja? If you crunch the numbers, based on what’s listed above, you’re looking at about $50,000 to build a gaming setup similar to Ninja’s.

That’s a lot of coin. But if you’re just getting started, you really do not need to be spending that much money on your Twitch streaming setup.

Like Ninja did back in 2011, just start small, use what you can afford, and scale up as your followers grow. Who knows? By 2030, we could be writing an article about your gaming setup…

In the meantime, your best bet it learning some tried and tested tactics for growing your Twitch followers.
