Most YouTubers at least find a need to put a face to their channel but with SwaggerSouls, viewers are fine not knowing the real face of the channel. Considered one of the most entertaining YouTubers, his channel is basically built on gameplay clips and tutorials. But absurdly, the host has chosen to be anonymous and usually hides behind a medieval battle helmet.
In spite of his unusual ways, the gamer still attracts followers in their numbers. In fact, his followers are drawn by that mysterious air around him and the unusual sense of humour he always brings to his gaming sessions. Let’s explore some interesting facts about the mysterious YouTuber.
An Insight Into The Life and Origin of Swaggersouls
His YouTube fans know him as Swaggersouls and though he doesn’t show his face and sure doesn’t share any personal information about himself, a deep research revealed that he was born as Eric. His date of birth is February 24, 1994, and he was born in the United States where he equally grew up.
There is a lack of information on his educational history, including the level of education he attained, probably because the world is yet to actually figure out who is behind the Swaggersouls front. In addition, little is also known about his childhood, parents, and other members of his family. The YouTuber has really spent most of five years in the limelight, shielding his private affairs from the prying eyes of the public.
How Swaggersouls Became A YouTube Sensation
Swaggersouls began making YouTube videos in 2016, although he launched his channel a year earlier, precisely in May 2015. He started out with uploading gameplay contents and his first video was titled Casual Shoutcasting! | CSGO’ which showed him playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Soon, he added different contents like live-action skits and general updates. However, the unique thing about his videos is the choice of outfit he usually wears, basically his medieval battle helmet, and the avatar costume makes him look like a real-life video game character. Also, his strategy of playing games with people he has never met has also made him stand out from the rest of the highly competitive YouTube gaming community.
Swaggersoul usually posts once a week but the videos always rake in hundreds of thousands in views. This goes to show how excited his fans get when he drops his videos.
Why The Youtuber Keeps His Face Covered
SwaggerSouls has done a good job of hiding his face from his ever-growing millions of subscribers and fans across social media platforms. According to him, he wears a knight’s helmet at all times for his personal safety. Perhaps his decision was inspired by an experience in the past but he is yet to explain why he chose that path. So far, the YouTuber doesn’t seem ready to take off the mask.
The closest he has come to disclosing his face was early in July of 2018 when he shared a live video titled “one million subscriber special”. In the video, a friend of his tried to unveil his face by taking off his helmet. However, he went on to confuse his subscribers all the more as a series of other faces wearing his famous jacket, as well as his chainmail coif, began to appear one after the other. It was later revealed that one of those faces was SwaggerSouls’. This was met with another bewildering twist that saw celebrity YouTuber PewDiePie rearing his head out of nowhere, declaring in a flippant manner that he is the real SwaggerSouls.
Masked SwaggerSouls who had earlier stated that it was time for him to show his face, reappeared with another remark that some things are better not known. The video was made to celebrate the milestone of reaching one million subscribers on his channel. His face remains unknown to date and to worsen it all, his over 3 million subscribers can’t even pinpoint his accent.

Though SwaggerSouls usually posts videos once a week without showing his face, each of the uploads garners millions of views. His fans seem not to care about his real face but his works. He was able to distinguish himself from the community of gamers by playing with strangers. Considering how most gamers seem to be doing the same and competition for a spot in the limelight, SwaggerSouls must have given it a deep though. Adding a helmet to the recipe has also cemented his position as a popular gamer.
2. He Is Not Just A YouTube Star
SwaggerSouls may have made a name for himself on YouTube for his VRChat and CS: GO videos, but he has gone beyond YouTube to become an internet sensation with thousands of followers on his other social media platforms such as Twitch, Instagram and Twitter. Aside from his social media skits, SwaggerSouls is also a member of a podcast group named Misfits, alongside his five friends.

It is not known where SwaggerSouls spent his early days but he currently lives in the northwestern part of the United States, precisely the state of Idaho. However, since he doesn’t even share his real identity, his particular address cannot be confirmed.
4. Financial Benefits from his YouTube Career
Like the rest of the YouTube sensations out there, SwaggerSouls is making real money from his internet endeavours. His net worth is estimated at $700,000. As you may already know, the majority of this fortune was earned from sharing different types of game videos and for his distinguished interaction with unknown players all the time his career has thrived.
As of April 2020, SwaggerSouls has accrued more than 4 million subscribers on his self-titled YouTube channel with over 3 million views. A rough estimate suggests that he might be making about $960 per day or $350,000 if his myriad of fans and the dedication they exhibit are anything to go by.
5. How Tall is the YouTuber?
Just like many things about the YouTuber, his height is not certain. One time he tweeted that he just realized that his height was literally 4’20”. After long arguments among his fans, he tweeted that he is the perfect height – standing at a 5 ft 8 in height, jokingly asking his followers to leave him alone. While we should probably take the information about his height with a pinch of salt, considering he doesn’t want his personal details to get out, it’s the best shot to knowing his height at this time.
