Ranboo’s Birthplace and Early Life

Ranboo was born in the US on November 2, 2003.

He’s yet to specify his hometown, but he’s disclosed that he once resided in the San Francisco Bay Area. Little about his relatives or siblings are known, though we unveiled some information about his educational history.

Factually, he attended a private high school and graduated on June 3, 2021. As far as college is concerned, he hasn’t mentioned if he attends one or plans to. Most of his fans speculate he’s determined to focus on his flourishing streaming career right now.

Following several trips to the United Kingdom to meet other gamers, he decided to relocate there. So, he bought a house in Brighton, where he plans to live for a while.

How Did Ranboo Get Started in Gaming?

According to stats, 81% of Gen Z are into video games, and apparently, Ranboo also caught the bug for these creations quite early. He started playing Minecraft when he was only 9.

Ranboo nurtured his gaming talent as he grew older. And to maximize his entertainment, he also delighted in utilizing the trendiest apps, such as TikTok. The latter enabled him to amass fans even before he started streaming professionally. So, when he did, his Twitch and YouTube accounts gained traction pretty fast.

During his rapid rise to fame, Ranboo achieved some significant achievements on Twitch. For instance, he was the newest, youngest, and first Minecraft player to attain 100,000 subscribers. He held the crown for the most subscribed-to streamer on this platform in February and March 2021. And he’s also known for holding the largest hype train (more than 100,000%).

Ranboo’s massive growth online caught many’s attention, and he got a chance to join several Minecraft communities.

Minecraft Servers

Dream SMP

Ranboo became a part of the Dream SMP in November 2020; he was one of the server’s first members. And he quickly built his reputation as one of the lore’s notable characters.

On Ranboo’s second day on the Dream SMP, he collaborated with TommyInnit to raze George’s house. This led to his inclusion into the server’s storyline, compelling him to begin working on his character the same day.

Initially, Ranboo played an enderman-hybrid character without his memory. Towards the end of 2021, Awesamdude killed it, and since he didn’t have any more lives, he’s now a ghost named “Boo”.

It’s noteworthy that Ranboo’s “lore streams” remain some of the Dream SMP’s well-liked ones. Some of them have garnered more than 100,000 live viewers because his characters are so perfectly written, and he plays them with impeccable skill.

Origins SMP

Ranboo joined the Origins SMP in February 2021. Besides him, other members of this Minecraft server include Wilbur Soot, Nihachu, TommyInnit, JackManifoldTV, Ph1LzA, Tubbo, Slimecicle, Jschlatt FragranceMan, Sneegsnag, Smajor1995, Technoblade, and Quackity. And he’s banded together to compete at various MC Championships.

Since the players on the Origins SMP have different origins, Ranboo chose the Enderian origin, a child of the Ender Dragon. His abilities are teleporting and reaching hard-to-reach blocks, thanks to his slender body. His small pool of weaknesses comes with hydrophobia (vulnerability to water) and reasonable fear of pumpkins.

CogChamp SMP

Ranboo is also a member of the CogChamp SMP, which utilizes the “Create” mode. He and other gamers, such as Fundy, Tubbo, Awesamdude, 5up, and Cuptoast, play on hard mode.

On this currently inactive server, Ranboo’s character is empathetic, pleasant, and fun. When it comes to his appearance, he’s half-enderman (black, but the origin of his other half is unknown.

MC Championships

Like many Minecraft enthusiasts on YouTube and Twitch, Ranboo participates in the MC championship, which the Noxcrew holds. In it, ten teams, each with four players, compete in 8 minigames chosen by the esport athletes.

The tournament gets more interesting with every round as there’s a point multiplier to make each title worth playing. Eventually, the two teams with the most points compete against each other in the final round, known as the ‘Dodgebolt’, to determine the winner.

Ranboo didn’t appear at the first 14 MC Championships, but he’s banded together with other exemplary Minecraft players to participate in MC Championship 15-22. Examples of his teammates are Tubbo, GeorgeNotFound, TapL, Wilbur Soot, SeaPeeKay, Ph1LzA, CaptainSparklez, Wisp, Sneegsnag, Smajor, Dream, Shubble, and Slimecicle.

While his teams haven’t won any of these tournaments, they placed 3rd in MC Championship 15, 17, 18, and 20.

Misfits Gaming

Ranboo’s gaming career took a turn for the better in 2022 when Misfits Gaming signed him with his close buddy, Tubbo. This Florida-based esports company disclosed that it already had a ton of projects in store for these Minecraft players, and they were all looking forward to completing them.

It’s noteworthy that Misfit’s Gaming Minecraft team is still in its infancy since the organization only began building it in 2021. Even so, it has well-established rosters in other esports, such as Apex Legends, Call of Duty, League of Legends, Overwatch, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Generation Loss

On May 1, 2022, Ranboo released the Generation Loss trailer. He started working on this horror mini-series in July 2021, drawing his inspiration from The Walten Files. It’s a great merge of live-action shooting and cartoon animations without much post-production editing.

Ranboo revealed that he intends to master using various programs for Generation Loss since he’ll be creating most of the animations and music for this project. Most of his fans can’t wait for the release of all its episodes, considering its YouTube channel already has over 230K subscribers.


Ranboo has been involved in several humanitarian endeavors. For example, in 2021, he held a 10-hour charity stream and raised more than $100,000 for the Trevor Project, an American LGBTQ+ organization.

During the same year, this streamer had another charity subathon stream, and this time he donated the $325,000 he raised to Charity: Water.

Although he wasn’t financially gaining much from these long-hour streams, his number of subs notably increased due to them.

Facial Dysmorphia

Despite Ranboo’s enviable success on Twitch, he has always been uncomfortable revealing his face. In 2021, he confessed to suffering from Facial Dysmorphia, a disorder that causes someone to have a warped perception of how their face looks, prompting them to believe that their nose, teeth, mouth, or other parts are ugly or deformed.

For this reason, Ranboo always wears a black and white mask when streaming or creating his YouTube content. Before, he also wore gloves and sunglasses, which, as he divulged, helped enhance his online persona.

In November 2021, Ranboo did an eye reveal by pulling down his sunglasses. Then, in January 2022, his confidence improved, and he shared pictures of himself without sunglasses for the first time.

Ranboo promised to do a full face reveal in a YouTube upload once he hits 5M subscribers. We can’t wait for him to hit this milestone and see if he’ll keep his word.

Ranboo’s Gaming Setup

Ranboo’s Microphone: Shure SM7B

Ludwig's Microphone: Shure SM7B

Like XQCOW and Dyrus, Rainbow leverages the Shure SM7B microphone. The microphone has an Air Suspension Shock Isolation and Pop Filter that eliminates breathiness and mechanical noise, allowing Ranboo to broadcast crisp, clear professional sounds.

The microphone also has a classic cardioid pattern that deflects off-axis sounds for more uniform voice capture.

Further, it also adopts a 2.4G dual-Wireless technology for wireless lossless audio that can be broadcasted to a frequency range of 10 – 40,000 Hz with stunning realism and clarity.

Ranboo’s Keyboard: Corsair K100

The excellently built Corsair K100 is what Ranboo fancies. The keyboard boasts a refined design bolstered by a durable aluminum frame to last for years even in the face of Ranboo’s furious keystrokes and unforgiving weather elements.

It also features a dynamic per-key RGB lighting that he controls, from a programmable iCUE panel vividly lighting his keyboard for unending gaming sessions. Adding a welcoming aesthetics to this dynamic lighting is a 44-zone three-sided LightEdge and up to 20-layer lighting effects.

Ranboo’s Power Supply: EVGA G3 750 W 80+

Regulating Ranboo’s power is EVGA’s 80 plus Gold certified G3 750W PSU. The PSU ranks as one of the most efficient in the industry operating at over 92% efficiency levels to save him against ballooning power bills.

Unlike most distracting PSU, his is fanned by 130 millimeters of Hydraulic Dynamic Bearings for the much-needed ultra-quiet performance allowing him to focus on winning. The PSU’s last layer of protection is diverse heavy-duty protections to guarantee his setup’s safety even in unstable power situations.

Ranboo’s GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090

Behind Ranboo’s detailed and pin-pixel clear videos and images is the incredible Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090. As Shroud can attest, the GPU packs more than enough gaming-enabled features for the most thrilling gaming experience.

For starters, the GPU is powered by the revered 3rd Gen Tensor Cores and 2nd Gen Ray Tracing Cores, whose combined computing capability can’t be matched by the needs of most games. Further, it relies on a 19.5 Gbps bandwidth supported by a 24GB 384-bit GDDR6X worth of memory.

Other key features include versatile video output ports, up to 8K capped video resolution, and a 2.0 RGB Lighting, all of which run on a 1695MHz boost clock.

Ranboo’s Webcam: Logitech C920

Ranboo fancies the Logitech C920 webcam, a plug-and-play webcam that can capture true-to-life video. It captures these videos in detailed 1080p at speeds of 30fps.

It is powered by a rechargeable battery and can clip to flat surfaces, gaming monitors, and laptops, among other devices. It also connects to most electronic devices through an ultra-fast USB to allow Ranboo conveniently transfer videos to his social media platforms.

Ranboo’s Mouse: Glorious Model O

The Glorious Model is an ambidextrous ultralightweight wired gaming mouse built for speed, comfort, and unparalleled control. The mouse has a honeycomb-pattern design to cut back on weight to whip out commands through its ultra-flexible cable.

Its medium size perfectly fits into Ranboo’s palm, allowing him to annihilate his opponents at the click of his six macro-programmable buttons. Returning the satisfying responsive drag-free wireless feeling is the mouse’s ultra-flexible cable.

Further, the mouse smoothly glides on its PTFE feet, religiously answering to all of Ranboo’s gaming whims as it sails him to victory. Among its impressive customization is an extensive lighting effect, a 6-step DPI, and adjustable polling rates, among many others.

Ranboo’s Processor: Intel i9 10900K

As DiazBiffle can attest, the Intel 19-10900K packs enough processing power to meet all of the most demanding games currently available. Therefore, it is no surprise that Ranboo leverages this monstrous capability to bring his A-game in all Minecraft exploits.

The processor has 10 cores with 20 threads to efficiently multi-task without the risk of slowing its optimal output. It peaks at speeds of 5.3Ghz when unlocked for overlocking, while its Turbo Boost max technology makes on any lapses. The processor can connect with Intel 400 series chipset motherboards through its LGA 1200 socket.

Ranboo’s Keycaps: Cherry MX Keycap Set (Super 90’s Custom)

Ranboo also uses Cherry MX Keycaps, whose color diversity rivals most of the Keyboard’s near-limitless RGB lighting options. The keycaps are UV coated to render them wear resistance and durable.

And he was ranked #16, having brought in $2,401,021.84; he was just below Loltyler1.

Notably, this was not the total amount he made on Twitch within that period because it didn’t include what he received from direct donations from his fans or personal sponsorships.

Also, remember that Ranboo still makes a lot of money as a Twitch streamer. His primary Twitch channel had up to 116,870 subs, but currently, it has 30,298. Supposing these are all Tier-1, he earns between $160K and 170K monthly. Of course, these subscribers could be of higher tiers, meaning he could be pocketing more money than that.
