Bugha’s probably right up there with Ninja when it comes to Fortnite streamers who are recognized even by those who have zero interest in either the game or streaming, thanks to his winning $3 Million USD after coming first in the inaugural Fortnite World Cup Championship in July 2019. This saw him appearing on the Tonight Show, ESPN and The Dan Patrick show, to name but a few. These successes, combined with his age (then 16), combined to cement his place as one of the most popular Twitch Fortnite streamers, and one of the richest.
However despite this, Bugha has a relatively modest gaming setup as we will explore below. In fact, he very rarely even uses his webcam during his streams and only uses one monitor in his setup.
WHAT MONITOR DOES BUGHA USE?
Bugha uses a Dell Alienware 25 AW2518H monitor. The Alienware 25 AW2518H is a 24.5” monitor that has G-Sync capabilities as well as a refresh rate of 240Hz and 1ms response time. Its maximum preset screen resolution is at 1920 x 1080. These specs are definitely above average, as most streamers settle for a 144Hz refresh rate, which is worth bearing in mind given that the refresh rate is only as good as the processing power behind it, meaning that without the correct hardware, it won’t be able to achieve peak performance.
Its metal tripod can be adjusted from between 0 to 13.3cm (4”), while the screen can be tilted between -5° to 25°, swiveled between -20° to 20° and pivoted between -90° to 90°. It also has a viewing angle of 170°/160°. Some extras include a Power Cable (Varies by Country), Display Port Cable and USB 3.0 Upstream cable. It can also be inserted onto a VESA wall mount, if you would prefer.
WHAT MOUSE DOES BUGHA USE?
Bugha uses a Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse. This addition to Bugha’s gaming setup is hardly surprising giving that it is arguably one of the most popular gaming mice among streamers (although this is due to sponsorships in some cases.) Some of the other big streamers who use one include HusKerrs, Nickmercs and Danucd, to name a few.
This ambidextrous mouse has a batter life of up to 63 hours when the RGB lights aren’t in use, and it can still be used while it is charging. This can be done with either a cable, or by simply using in on a Logitech G Powerplay mousepad. Nevertheless, there is also a wired version, for those who aren’t the biggest fans of wireless mice.
Spec wise, the Logitech G Pro wireless mouse has a HERO 3 sensor that spans a range of between 100 – 16,000dpi at a response rate of 1ms. These settings can set on the Logitech G Hub software and toggled with the dpi button located below the clickable scroll wheel. It can store up to five onboard profiles which can be set on its two macro buttons that are located on the right thumb-side. It is also fairly lightweight at ~79g and has dimensions of 3.82 x 62.15 x 11.66cm (1.57 x 2.5 x 4.92 inches).
WHAT KEYBOARD DOES BUGHA USE?
Bugha uses a SteelSeries Apex Pro TKL keyboard. Bugha uses the tenkeyless version of the SteeSeries Apex Pro, meaning that it is missing the rightmost number pad. Aside from that, the features are pretty much the same, as they both come with omnipoint switches that allow for the actuation points to be adjusted for between 0.4 – 3.6mm.
It is built on an aircraft-grade aluminum chassis and has a small OLED display screen in the top right corner that allows for the omnipoint switches to be adjusted directly on the keyboard, as can the RGB lighting effects and color options. It also includes a soft touch, detachable magnetic wrist rest.
WHAT HEADSET DOES BUGHA USE?
Bugha uses a Logitech G Pro X headset. The Logitech G Pro X is a wired, over-ear, closed-backed headset that is an updated version of the Logitech G Pro, which has now been enhanced with Blue Vo!ce technology. This technology is meant to enhance the overall quality of the microphone’s audio quality output. However, Bugha’s gaming setup features a dedicated microphone, so if he does make use of the mic, it’s only off stream. The microphone is detachable and has a frequency response rate of 100 – 10,000Hz.
The ear cups contain Pro G 50mmm drivers that have a frequency response range of 20 – 20,000Hz as well as DTS Headphone: X 2.0 7.1 surround sound capabilities. The frame is constructed from aluminum and steel and allows for the padded head band to be adjusted. The ear cups are padded with memory foam that is covered in a leatherette fabric. The headband is also flexible, making it easier to transport it.
It also comes with its own carrying bag, as well as a pair of velour ear pads in case the user isn’t crazy about leatherette padding.
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES BUGHA USE?
Bugha uses a Shure SM7B microphone. The Shure SM7B is a cardioid microphone that has a frequency response range of between 50 – 20,000Hz, an impedance of 150Ohms and a sensitivity of -59dBz. Its chassis is constructed from sturdy metal and the head has an internal pop-filter to help safeguard against plosive sound interfering with recordings. Similarly, it also includes a detachable external windscreen to help prevent against other noises from mechanical and electrical sources that might otherwise filter though. There is also a high-press filter switch and presence boost button located on its base.
It comes with a captive but stand, but not the mic stand, XLR cable and audio interface that it further requires to record audio.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES BUGHA USE?
Bugha uses a Logitech c922x webcam. The Logitech C922x is a plug-and-play webcam that comes with a six-month free trial of Microsoft’s XSplit streaming software. This is one of the only two differences between it and the regular C922, as the C922 only comes with a three-month free trial. The other difference is that the C922 also comes with a tripod desk stand.
The Logitech C922x can record at either 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps. It also allows for a 78° field of view, which can be adjusted and panned through the webcam’s software. It is compatible with Microsoft 7 and up, as well as Mac OS 10.10 and up.
