Who is Hiko?

Spencer “Hiko” Martin is a former professional Valorant player and is currently a streamer for 100 Thieves. Hiko rose to fame as a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player for Cloud9 and Team Liquid before switching to Valorant.

The 32-year-old veteran retired from competitive gameplay back in April 2022. He mentioned that he will focus on streaming on Twitch instead.

He was part of the Team Liquid squad that placed second back in the ESL One Cologne 2016. Hiko played alongside Shroud and N0thing in Cloud9’s CS: GO roster.

The CS: GO veteran is famous for his flick shots. He cemented his name as a person with “inhuman reactions” after a 180 flick headshot against Christopher Alesund back in the 2014 ESL Cologne quarter-finals.

His reaction time is still present and is evident with his insane shots in Valorant.

Hiko streams Valorant regularly to more than 1.7 million followers on Twitch. His legendary status in Counter-Strike followed him to Valorant.

His impressive shots are a beauty to watch and if you constantly visit his stream, you might be interested to know his settings.

That being said, here are Hiko’s Valorant settings.

Hiko Mouse Settings

Hiko uses the FinalMouse Starlight-12 mouse. It is the perfect mouse for Valorant because it is lightweight and easy to flick – perfect for a player with inhuman reactions.

Hiko Valorant Video Settings

Hiko uses a mix of medium and low for his Valorant video graphics settings. This is to ensure that he is hitting more than 144fps or 240fps while playing the game.

In a game like Valorant, framerate is more important than graphics. The better the framerate, the faster you can see your enemies and it will make it easier for you to react.

Hiko also uses a unique resolution at 1680 x 1050 instead of the usual 1920 x 1080. This resolution feels a little stretched but it helps with reaching higher framerates.

Hiko Gaming PC Specs

Hiko uses the top-tier AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor because Valorant relies on the CPU to output high framerates. Using one of the fastest processors allows him to reach 300fps or more while playing Valorant.

The RTX 3090 is still the best in its class while the RAM and the motherboard he chose are totally excellent choices.

Hiko Streaming PC Specs

Hiko uses a separate computer to stream his games. The purpose of two computers to stream is to have smooth gameplay and live feed. There would be no stuttering, both for his Valorant gameplay and Twitch streams.

Otherwise, if he is using a single computer, the processor will take care of gaming and streaming and it might lead to stream inconsistencies.

Here are the specs of his streaming PC.
