TeePee gained fame during his time as a pro-Call of Duty player between 2010 – 2016. Although he has since retired for the most part, choosing rather to focus on coaching and now his incredibly lucrative streaming career, he is still recognized as being one the most skilled CoD pros of all time. Therefore, it’s worthwhile to pay attention to the equipment that TeePee has chosen for his gaming setup.
WHAT MONITOR DOES TEEPEE USE?
TeePee uses a BenQ ZOWIE XL2546 24.5-inch monitor. The BenQ Zowie XL2546 is a gaming monitor that has a 1920×1080 resolution for its screen, with a 1ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate. These features are meant to decrease the lagging and blurriness that might otherwise occur during gameplay. The side shields are designed to further assist gamers by blocking out distractions that might occur in their peripheral vision.
WHAT MOUSE DOES TEEPEE USE?
TeePee uses a Razer DeathAdder v2 mouse. The Razer DeathAdder v2 is an updated version of the DeathAdder Eilte. It is wired RGB gaming mouse that features a 20,000 DPI optical sensor with switches that are promoted as “3x faster than traditional mechanical switches.” It also has eight programable macro buttons that can be set through the Razer Synapse 3 software, as opposed to the seven offered by the DeathAdder Elite. It is also much lighter than the Eilte, as it weighs ~82g rather than 130g, and comes with rubberized side grips and a serrated scroll wheel to help the user to maintain control.
However, an important factor to note is that you will need to register through the website in order to access the software, which may annoy some users. Additionally, this mouse is intended for right-handed users only.
WHAT MOUSE DOES TEEPEE USE?
TeePee uses a Scuf Impact controller. TeePee uses a limited-edition TeePee version of the Scuf Impact controller which is available exclusively from the Scuf website.
The Scuf Impact controller can be custom built through the website with options to select the shell, as well as either add or adjust the various trigger systems, bumpers, thumbstick shapes, ring colors, control disc, button kit color, grip types and more.
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES TEEPEE USE?
TeePee uses an Audio-Technica AT2020 XLR microphone. The XLR version of the AT2020 is a cardioid condenser microphone that as a noise level of 20dB spl. It’s cardioid polar pattern ensures that it only mics up noise from the front, thereby reducing the amount of unwanted background noise that might otherwise be captured by it. As with the USB version, it has a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz and an impedance of 100ohms.
Although it comes with a storage bag and microphone stand adaptor, you will need to buy your own 3-pin XLRM adapter cable, as well as a pre-amp or mixer to provide it with the 48V of phantom power that it needs to operate. The USB version on the other hand, connects directly to the PC and comes with its own tripod stand. However, audio device outputs generally sound better when processed by an audio interface, so you may want to check out comparison videos either way.
WHAT MIXER DOES TEEPEE USE?
TeePee uses a TC Helicon GoXLR mixer. TeePee has chosen a TC Helicon GoXLR mixer for his gaming setup, which makes sense as it’s among the more popular mixers used by streamers, as it is also used by TimTheTatman, aceu and Danucd and many others. This mixer has the capacity to handle one input source at a time, either in the form of an XLR cable, or a TS/TRSTRRS jack. The preamp can handle up to 70dB of gain and has four volume sliders as well as other knobs and buttons that enable him to adjust the various sound effects, mute audio and perform other useful functions
WHAT WEBCAM DOES TEEPEE USE?
TeePee uses a Sony Alpha a6400 Mirrorless Camera. The Sony Alpha a6400 is an APS-C 4K touchscreen camera. It shoots 24.2 MP images and 11fps with an ISO sensitivity of 100 -32,000. Although it is primarily designed for photography, it is also capable of recording motion at up to 4K at 30fps. It also allows for time-lapse movies, whereby photographers can set continuous shooting with still-shot pauses between every 1 – 60 seconds.
Additionally, it has a 180° tiltable LCD monitor that enables the user to film selfie-style. This makes it useful for vlogging, especially in light of its also featuring an external microphone jack and XLR capable on which to connect a microphone. Further features real-time eye AF tracking and an autofocus with a 425 phase-detection points.
Its battery life lasts for around 360 shots with the Viewfinder or around 410 shots with the LCD monitor. Furthermore, each button on the camera is customizable through the built-in software, which will enable the user to adjust the cameras settings while on the go. This is aside from its many other capabilities. Therefore, this camera is for serious bloggers or established streamers who can afford to fork out for fancier equipment. New streamers would arguably be better off with regular plug-and-play webcams.
