Although DeadlySlob has never been a pro, his skills have still earned him a following of over 270,000 Twitch followers for a good reason. So its worth noting the equipment that makes up Deadlyslob’s setup for gaming and stremaing.
Deadlyslob is known for his quick reflexes, chat interaction during games and shooting skills, especially headshots and sniping. He grew up playing video games with his brothers and has been streaming since 2006, when he began creating World of Warcraft content for YouTube. He only really started to grow around 2015 after being inspired to create more consistent and varied content by watching other content creator’s videos. In 2016, he switched to DayZ content, which marked the beginning of his real growth, as well as the evolution of his channel into a survival and fps channel over a WoW content channel.
DeadlySlob mouse is a Razer DeathAdder Elite wireless. The Razer DeathAdder Eilte is an RGB mouse with a 16,000 DPI Optical sensor that can track at 450 IPS, with a resolution accuracy of 99.4%. The DPI can be adjusted mid-game through the 7 reprogrammable macro buttons on the side of the mouse. The mouse is integrated with Omron switches that are meant to last for up to 50 million clicks.
Its frame is large and curved with rubber side-grips and thumb-grip and an arched grip in order to provide comfort to gamers with bigger hands. The scroll wheel also has a ridged, rubber grip. It has a 2.32m (7ft) fiber cable with a USB connector.
DeadlySlob’s keyboard is a Logitech G710+, which is a gaming keyboard that features 6 programable G-keys, quiet Cherry MX Brown switches and dual-zone lighting that allows the user to set the brightness of the WASD and arrow keys separately from the lighting of the keys on the rest of the keyboard. However, this is not an RGB keyboard, but rather has the option of white backlighting. The brightness can be adjusted through a button on the keyboard itself. There is an additional key at the top of the keyboard that allows the Windows key to be disabled during gameplay.
There are three macro keys on which to program the G-Keys, with a fourth macro recording button located beside them. Each G-key can be programmed with a set of multiple keystrokes. The keyboard has high sensitivity due to its 26-key rollover capabilities that enables it to pick up multiple keystrokes at once. It also comes with a detachable wrist rest.
DeadlySlob’s headset is a Sennheiser GSP 600. The Sennheiser GSP 600 headset is a wired, closed back multiplatform headset that comes with a noise-cancelling flip-to-mute microphone. Deadlyslob doesn’t use the microphone though, so you will need to watch a few review videos to get a sense of how it performs.
The earcups are padded in a suede-like fabric and are attached to a padded adjustable headband The earphones are dynamic and offer a frequency response of 15 – 26,000Hz with an impedance of 19Ohm. It is compatible with PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, as well as other consoles and connects with a 2.5 mm jack.
DeadlySlob microphone is a RØDE NT1-A. DeadlySlob bought the RØDE NT1-A microphone as part of an anniversary bundle. It is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with a solid metal construction that is also favored by Mang0, SyndereN and Muselk.
It has a unidirectional polar pattern that has a self-noise level of only 5dBA, as well as a frequency range of 20Hz – 20kHz. It requires either 24V or 48V of phantom power and so will need a dedicated audio interface in to convert the signal before it is transferred to the recording device.
The bundle also includes a RØDE SM6 shock mount with integrated popshield, 20” XLR to XLR cable, microphone dust cover, and NT1-A Studio Secrets DVD.
DeadlySlob setup includes a Logitech C930e webcam. The Logitech C930e is a dedicated plug-and-play clip-on webcam that is capable of recording at full 1080p at 30 fps on either a PC, Mac or laptop. It has a 90-degree field of view, pan, tilt, autofocus and 4x digital zoom capabilities. It is designed for business use and comes with two built-in microphones on either side of the webcam.
