What mouse does TenZ use?
TenZ uses the Lamzu Atlantis Mini Pro mouse
TenZ was previously known for rocking the Logitech G Pro Superlight mouse used by the majority of Valorant pros. However, he recently switched to a claw grip and is now sporting the Lamzu Atlantis Mini Pro, a gaming mouse designed exactly for such a grip style.
The Lamzu Atlantis Mini Pro comes default with 1000Hz Polling rate but can be upgraded to 4000Hz polling rate via a dongle sold separately. TenZ uses this dongle for the performance boost.
Furthermore, the Lamzu Atlantis is ultralight, weighing just 51 grams, has 2 side buttons, is wireless, and supports up to 26000DPI.
It’s a phenomenal gaming mouse, that comes in at a very attractive price point compared to competitors and should be 100% considered by any competitive gamer using or trying to switch to the claw grip.
What mousepad does TenZ use?
TenZ is known for only using his mousepads for a limited amount of time to prevent them from impacting his performance. He currently uses the Artisan Zero XSOFT XL gaming mousepad. These are imported from Japan and are hard to come by in the US.
Previously, he used the BenQ Zowie G-SR which is of similar quality and easier to get in the US.
Which keyboard does TenZ use?
TenZ uses the Wooting 60HE
The Wooting 60HE is undoubtedly the best gaming keyboard on the market today.
This 60% keyboard is designed for the highest level of competitive gaming and comes with analog switches and rapid-fire technology that allows gamers to completely modify the actuation and deactivation force of each individual switch via the Wootility software.
For example, you could set your WASD keys to 0.1ms making your movement in Valorant lightning fast and miles ahead of anyone not using a Wooting keyboard.
This keyboard is a game-changer, and completely disrupting the gaming space.
If you are willing to wait for the keyboard (which takes about 2-3 months to get to the US) you can pre-order it from their website.
P.S. Because the Wooting comes in a plastic case, TenZ has modified it with an aluminum case and switched out the keycaps to customize it to his heart’s content.
Previously TenZ was seen sporting the beloved HyperX Alloy Origins keyboard.
Which Earbuds does TenZ use?
TenZ currently doesn’t use a headset while playing Valorant and instead uses Shure SE846 earbuds. These are much better for gaming performance as you get the game sounds fed directly through your ear. Don’t look at the price though, IEM earbuds are ridiculously expensive and you are probably better off using a headset as a casual.
Which Headset does TenZ use?
While rarily seen without his Shure SE846 earbuds these days, TenZ also has an Xtrfy H1 gaming headset provided by his brand deal with the company.
What monitor does TenZ use?
Tyson’s brand new Zowie XL2566K is a gaming monitor with a whopping 360Hz refresh rate allowing TenZ to play Valorant with absolutely no delay.
Most Valorant professionals have a monitor with at least 240Hz refresh rate. Previously, TenZ used this monitor’s predecessor, the BenQ Zowie XL2546K which has a 240Hz refresh rate.
The difference between 360Hz and 240Hz is hardly noticeable, but it makes sense to go for the best model when you play at the top of the world.
Fun fact: TenZ plays with DyAc turned off.
Which chair does TenZ use?
TenZ is sponsored by Secretlab and thus sits on their beloved Titan Evo chair. TenZ’s version is of course the latest Jett model which came out as part of the Secretlab x Valorant collaboration.
TenZ has sat in many different variations of Secretlabs chairs and is clearly a big fan of the gaming chair company, regardless of his ongoing brand deals with them. In the past he had a Sentinels version and back in the Cloud9 days he had a Cloud 9 Secretlab Omega chair.
Secretlab’s Titan Evo is an aesthetic gaming chair with a ton of ergonomic features to provide support during lengthy gaming and streaming sessions. The chair comes with built-in lumbar support, adjustable armrests, a comfy magnetic pillow, and tons of other premium features.
Which microphone does TenZ use?
The Shure SM7B is just a staple amongst streamers at this point, almost every top streamer uses it. The reason for this is that the Shure SM7B has a very nice and timeless design and amazing audio quality that you just cannot go wrong adding it to your setup!

What microphone stand does TenZ use?
The PSA1 is an obvious choice for livestreamers with a fancy XLR microphone as its a sturdy built boom arm that attaches to the back of your desk. This boom arm is used by 99% of streamers we’ve reviewed in our stream setups.
Which audio interface does TenZ use?
The GOXLR mini is the smaller and cheaper version of the GOXLR which for a while was the most used interface amongst streamers due to its aesthetic design, simplicity, and voice effects.
Since the GOXLR mini came out, many streamers have opted for this model because its cheaper and takes up a lot less space on your desk.
