XQc grew up being interested in various sports, his two favorites being skateboarding and snowboarding – knowing that these sports are dangerous, his parents agreed to let him skateboard and snowboard only if he wore his knee pads and helmets. At around the same time, xQc became interested in playing video games, and often played against his peers.

Upon matriculating in 2013, xQc enrolled at the post-secondary pre-university collegiate technical college CEGEP at which he studied humanities, but then switched to administration – he dropped out just before graduation to focus on his career as a gamer and Twitch streamer.

Career as a professional gamer

XQc initially wanted to play the video game “League of Legends”, and mostly livestreamed it on Twitch, however, after learning about “Overwatch”, he began playing that instead, and soon found himself competing with and against professional e-Sport players.

He started off by playing for the semi-professional team DatZit Gaming as their main tank, and on 13 August 2016, the boys won the Dreamhack Montreal 2016 Overwatch tournament. XQc left the team not long afterwards, and moved to the team Q?, which was on 12 October 2016 bought by Denial eSports, a former professional e-Sports organization based in the US.

Denial failed to pay its players, and as xQc has stated, they owed them $2,800 each when the team disbanded. The boys went on to form their own team, calling themselves YIKES! before changing it to Arc.6 – they qualified to compete in Season Zero of Overwatch Contenders, but lost during the group stage. Their final tournament together was the Beat Invitational: Season 2 which they finished in third place.

It was announced on 28 October 2017 that xQc would be joining Dallas Fuel as their ninth player, and he played several matches before it was revealed that he had made homophobic remarks towards Austin ‘Muma’ Wilmot, a rival playing for the Houston Outlaws, during one of his Twitch streams, and was thus fined $2,000 and suspended for several matches.

The suspension was later extended, but xQc eventually returned and led Dallas Fuel to victory against the Los Angeles Gladiators. Not long afterwards, he was suspended once again for social media violations, and then announced that he was going to retire and focus solely on being a Twitch streamer. However, xQc changed his mind, and joined the team GOATS, then moved to Gladiators Legion on 2 February 2019, but left in late 2019.

He has also entered international tournaments with Team Canada, and was in 2017 named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player (MVP), however, Team Canada still lost in the finals against South Korea, the defending champion – in 2018, the team reached the quarterfinals, while they failed to pass the group stage in July 2019.

Twitch and YouTube

In 2019, xQc became a full-time streamer, and today usually spends around nine hours live-streaming every day – he was the 29th most followed streamer in October 2019, and is today the owner of one of the most subscribed to channels, with around 35,000 monthly subscribers. XQc still plays “Overwatch” but today seems more focused on testing new Steam releases, streaming while attending various gaming events such as BlizzCon and TwitchCon to show his fans how the events look. The highest number of xQc’s all-time peak viewers is today 222,720, while his record for total unique viewers in a single stream is 1,971,819 people set on 9 April 2020.

He has also become interested in chess, and occasionally streams while playing it. He began playing chess in March 2020 and, Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura who is also a Twitch streamer decided to teach him – many streamers have since joined Chess.com, and the website then created a special chess tournament for streamers, at which xQc lost in the semi-finals.

He is also running his YouTube channel “xQcOW”, which he launched on 8 March 2015, and is today subscribed to by around 1.25 million people, and numbers around 525 million views of all xQc’s videos combined. He mostly uploads highlights of his Twitch streams, while his most popular video “xQc REACTS TO DAILY DOSE OF INTERNET | Episode 1 | xQcOW” has been watched around 3.5 million times since 19 January 2019.

Bans and suspensions

XQc was suspended twice from “Overwatch” for violating Blizzard’s terms of usage, and has been permanently banned from playing “League of Legends” – he is one of 0.006 percent of the game’s players who are considered ‘negative enough to be permanently banned’.

He was banned from Twitch (for three days) for the first time on 31 July 2019, when he streamed a video featuring pornographic scenes – he was banned for three days once again on 29 February 2020 after showing nudity in the video game “Connect Four”. XQc was banned for a day on 12 June 2020 for watching two gorillas have sex, and on 18 November 2020 he was banned for a week after stream sniping while playing “Fall Guys” at the Twitch Rivals event – stream sniping is when a person watches someone livestreaming while playing the same game as them, so that they could know their location and take them down in the game. XQc was also banned for half a year from Twitch Rivals for this.

Love life and relationships

XQc is quite secretive when it comes to his relationships, and is keeping the details of the girls he might have dated hidden from the public’s attention.

However, there are rumors circulating the internet, mostly on Reddit.com, that he is currently in a relationship with a fellow Twitch streamer who has occasionally appeared in his streams when they play the video game “Fortnite” together. The girl in question is one of xQc’s best friends, but there are many who believe that she is also his girlfriend, and that they have been dating for over a year now – however, neither of the two have commented on this.

There are also rumors claiming that xQc is gay but these haven’t been confirmed either.

As of December 2020, xQc appears to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

XQc is physically active, as he has several training sessions at the gym each week, however, as he is quite skinny, his body doesn’t appear as very muscular.

He became interested in travelling when he competed abroad for the first time, and has since travelled to various European countries as well as Asian, for both work and pleasure – his dream travel destination is Tokyo in Japan.

XQc is a big lover of animals, with dogs being his favorites – he has a pet dog and a pet cat which can be seen featured in some of his Instagram pictures.

He occasionally watches movies, and his favorite actor is Johnny Depp while a couple of his favorite films are the franchise “The Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Edward Scissorhands” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”.

“Crimson” is the first of many movies that FaZe Clan is looking to release, having previously launched a film and tv studio, and also partnered with Quibi for a reality show entitled “Faze Up”. The plot revolves around a social media influencer, who moves into a new multimillion-dollar home, and discovers that his neighbors are clowns.

Despite the hype, “Crimson” has not been a successful or well-received movie, with user reviews on IMDb deeming it a waste of money, and blasting Brian for his acting. It’s currently unknown what the budget for the movie was, or how much it has made.

FaZe Rug’s Net Worth

So what is Brian’s real net worth? Sources estimate that as of late 2020 it’s over $7 million, a figure which will increase as he is reputedly set to earn over $3 million this year alone. His monetized YouTube videos, the main source of his income, are viewed at least three million times a day.

Brian likes to try new things, and released his first hip-hop single, “Goin’ Live”, in January 2020. The music video has accumulated 13 million views, and many streamers and fellow YouTubers made reaction videos giving their opinion. Many wondered if Brian was going to try a music career, but he’s said that the song was made as a joke, which rules out any future music.

It will be interesting to watch how his career develops.

However, don’t forget Brian is also a part-owner of FaZe Clan, an esports company endorsed by celebrities such as Migos rapper Offset and Jimmy Iovine, the billionaire co-founder of Interscope. His varied business ventures include Chug Rug, which is Brian’s energy drink flavor, acting, and merchandise. Thanks to his multiple streams of income he is expected to be worth eight figures in the next few years, an impressive feat for someone so young and a reminder of what you’re capable of when you pursue your passions in life.
