Born somewhere deep in Australia, Pestily is a different kind of streamer. From his dedication to good causes to his unyielding support and appreciation of those who follow him, Pestily does the most that any Twitch streamer can.
Only taking up streaming as a full time profession in 2018, Pestily has seen a drastic change in impact with the most recent updates to Escape From Tarkov, Pestily’s signature game. As each iteration comes through, players of all kinds can expect and count of Pestily for guides on every aspect of the game. Whether you’re in Tarkov for the kills, the money, or the extensive inventory management, odds are Pestily has a plethora of videos discussing it all thoroughly.
But how does someone go from 8 years of military service to being the #1 most-watched Tarkov streamer in little over a year and a half? Well, it’s a lot of dedication and a lot of pure Pestily.
Pestily’s Streaming Setup
Pestily has always been the kind of person to work with what’s available and make the best of it. Which is likely why his current keybinds don’t venture too far from the standards. However, he does keep his sensitivity settings all rather low. It’s likely that Pestily has some additional sensitivity settings going on within his computer that we are not yet privy to, though you can count on us in updating should we find any additional information.
When it comes to his graphical and auditory settings, it’s important to know that Pestily has a rather capable machine. This allows for him to keep his FOV at max, and have rather higher visibility than most others, even while keeping texture and shadow qualities higher. Pestily also likes to make sure his senses aren’t overloaded with game audio and therefore keeps almost everything other than effects at the lower end of things.
Speaking of the said capable machine, Pestily’s computer is quite the workhorse. Built using some of the best gear that Corsair has to offer, and utilizing every centimeter provided for him, Pestily has easily found a solid upgrade from his old computer. These updates from Corsair will allow him to produce his content and guides at a faster rate and with much higher quality as well.
In the 2020 year, Pestily is dedicated to two things. Traveling Europe to climb all the highest points in each country, and raising at least $1,000,000 AUD for Starlight Children’s Foundation. Planning on completing his journey within the year, and thereby breaking a world record, Pestily is also dead-set on streaming and updating his followers the entire time. If you’re wanting to follow and keep up to date on all things Pestily as he travels the world, follow him on Twitter and YouTube!
Average hours streamed each day:
Pestily is a self-described “long-time gamer”. Playing Half Life and CS:GO early on in his life and spending countless hours under the name “Pestilence” with his friends, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Pestily has truly honed his skill and appreciation of gaming. As he grew up within his family of 8, he learned the value of putting others first and sticking to your word. Both are qualities that can be found in Pestily each and every moment of his streams.
Before even thinking of streaming as an option, Pestily served in the Australian Army as a Rifleman for 8 years, which severely limited his access to gaming of any kind. After completing his service, he began working as a Part-time Firefighter in South Australia, but due to family reasons, he had to return to Adelaide and leave the majority of his life behind.
Thankfully for him and the Escape From Tarkov community, Pestily sought out comfort and friendship online through streaming in 2017. Teaching himself Adobe to edit videos for YouTube, learning the ins and outs of streaming, and trying to build a following took some time for Pestily, and nearing the end of 2017 he decided to fully dedicate himself to the streaming world. His dedication to the world of Tarkov only proved to be fruitful for Pestily as newer updates brought EFT back into the spotlight, and Pestily was there ready to help any and all.
Pestily’s footprint exploded. Within the span of only 3 months, his following went from around 400 to over 30,000 and he has managed to shoot directly to the top of the Tarkov streaming community on Twitch. It’s obvious that Pestily won’t simply take his new-found success lightly. For the entire year of 2020, Pestily has vowed to not accept any donations or tips, as he’ll put raising money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation in Australia. Hoping to raise $1,000,000 AUD, Pestily encourages all his followers and subscribers to donate to the SCF instead.
