Have you ever wanted to sit down with your favorite streamer and pick their brain? We sat down with FaZe H1ghSky1 to ask our burning questions about his birthday, gear, history, and more. Enjoy!
What are you most known for?
I'm most known as being in FaZe Clan as a streamer or content creator - whatever you want to call it.
How come nobody knows when your birthday is?
Top secret information. FBI. Nah, I'm just kidding. It's just a secret - it's gonna be a surprise.
Where did you come up with the name h1ghsky1?
Honestly, it was kind of random. It's like a goal - "reach for the skies," you know, like a "do your best" kind of thing.
What would you tell somebody your age that wants to get into esports?
Grind. It. Out. The thing that you want to do... you may not want to grind, but you have to grind. It's the only way you can get into it.
Did you ever want to be anything other than an esports pro growing up or nah?
No. I just want to be a gamer.
What's one thing that most people don't know about you?
Most people don't know that I'm actually Romanian and I have a different name apart from Patrick. It's Patrichu.
What accomplishment are you most proud of so far?
Probably hitting a million followers on Instagram (IG) in like, 3 months.
What is your next goal?
Hitting 2M (subscribers) on YouTube and on IG and then hitting 100K on Twitter.
What do you have to say to your followers as of now?
Thank you, guys, SO SO much for all the support and being with me through all this.
How did you get into gaming?
It was actually my dad that got me into gaming. He would play Call of Duty late at night and I would watch him play - it was super cool.
When did you start playing Fortnite?
I started playing in September which was pretty much the month it came out and then I quit it... and came back a month later!
What was the moment when your gaming career changed?
It was when FaZe recruited me - that was one of my greatest achievements in life and I want to send a massive thank you to them.
What would you say the top 3 guns are in Fortnite right now?
Probably the Mythic Scar, the Mythic Grappler, and the Mythic Minigun.
How many hours a day are you playing Fortnite?
Too many (laughs). Between 4-12 hours.
What piece of gear is most important to your setup?
Easily your mouse. Without your mouse you can't move around and shoot rubber bullets into anybody.
Which mouse do you use?
I use the Rival 3 SteelSeries mouse. It's absolutely amazing. You should get one for yourself. (Use code HIGH12 at checkout for 12% off!)
How do you warm up when you start playing Fortnite?
I don't really warm up. If I want to, I'll go into Creative and do an edit course or just crank.
What's your earliest gaming memory?
Probably Counter-Strike source or 1.6. Those are where I had most of my memories.
How old were you at the time?
Like eight-ish, I think.
What's your favorite drop spot right now in Fortnite?
Probably Agency. It has so many people it's kinda easy to go crazy.
Are the henchmen killing you all the time, or what?
I actually die at a henchman more than real people, which is a little depressing. (laughs)
Are you going to play as competitive when you're of age?
Maybe, I don't know!
What are your top 3 things you like doing outside of gaming?
Family, food, and then some friends.
Do you have a favorite sibling?
Don't tell the boys, but Grace is actually my favorite. I taught her how to play Fortnite.
How long have you been teaching her to play?
Probably like, a year now.
Grace, how old are you?
(Grace proceeds to dominate in Fortnite, making all adults watching feel bad.)
How have your parents respected your love for gaming?
We moved to America from Romania and they gave me a bunch of opportunities. I chose gaming because I absolutely love it - so yeah, they've helped me a lot.
What do your parents think of everything?
They're learning a lot, starting to learn more about (esports) more and more, and they completely support me.
How many siblings do you have?
I have four siblings in total. Two of my brothers have moved out and then I play with my two siblings that still live with me.
What activities do you play together?
We like to play soccer, video games together, we play board games too.

A year ago last month (March 2020).
