Starting a career in esports requires special equipment. And to make things easier on you, we took the time and spent 100’s of hours researching and reviewing all the different pieces needed so you (or your child) can get started right away.

Some of the gear recommended is the same used by the high-level professionals, but we were very conscious to pay attention to the price. Even our parents had a budget for our sister. I think you’ll find a fairly comprehensive list giving you everything you need while staying within budget.
