Spencer “Hiko” Martin is an American Valorant eSports player, also known for his CS: GO professional gaming career, which he ended in 2020 to focus on competitive Valorant. In 2022, Hiko retired from competitive Valorant to focus on content creation under the 100 Thieves esports org.
He is an extremely popular Twitch streamer as well. He started back in 2014, and since then, he has accumulated over 1.75 million followers. One interesting and cute fact about his Twitch chat is that his mother sometimes acts as one of the moderators.
If you’ve landed on this article, you probably already know a thing or two about the player and are looking to more about his current gear and Valorant settings.
Today we will see what Hiko’s settings and gear are, be it his microphone, headset, mouse, keyboard, or something else.

One popular opinion is that you shouldn’t imitate pro gamers’ settings, and maybe justifiably so – everyone’s playstyle is different, after all. Instead, an important part of success in pro gaming according to many is your gear, which in Hiko’s case is expensive.
The entire setup, which includes the PC, mouse, keyboard, monitor, headset, and other equipment can cost many thousands of dollars. Let’s take a look at what gear he currently has.
Mouse and Keyboard
Much like Shroud, Hiko makes use of the Logitech G Pro X Superlight.
When it comes to the keyboard, Hiko primarily uses MK DISCO BLACK TKL. Interestingly, this keyboard isn’t marketed as a gaming keyboard in particular, even though no doubt it offers a pretty great performance.
When it comes to first-person shooters, two extremely important parameters for a monitor are the refresh rate and response time. Hiko’s Alienware AW2521H has a refresh rate of 360Hz and a response time of 1 ms, as well as Full HD resolution.
Hiko uses the JBL QUANTUM ONE, and even the headset’s Amazon page says that “in competitive gaming, sound is survival”. This is a gamer-oriented headset, which includes a head-tracking sensor, allowing you to more accurately determine where a sound is coming from.
Hiko’s microphone is a professional-oriented Sennheiser Pro MK 4. It’s versatile and intended for studio or stage use.
Hiko uses the extremely popular HERMAN MILLER X LOGITECH EMBODY, which is said to be a “golden grail” of gaming chairs due to its premium materials and comfortable design.
