In this article, we’ll drive you through Hiko’s new and updated VALORANT settings. So you can tweak your settings accordingly to get one step ahead of everyone.

Born in 1990, Spencer “Hiko” Martin is a content creator and streamer for 100 Thieves, currently living in North America. He started his esports career as a professional CS player, competing in countless notable tournaments under big organizations such as Complexity, Cloud 9, Optic, Team Liquid, and more.

After leaving several remarks as a professional CS player, he decided to step down from competitive CS:GO and pursue his career as a VALORANT professional in June 2020. He played professional VALORANT for one of the best NA rosters under the 100 Thieves banner, winning numerous tournaments.

On April 12, 2022, Hiko retired from competitive VALORANT and decided to become a full-time content creator. He is still signed under 100 Thieves, spreading his presence among the streaming community. He has garnered a huge follower base from both CS and VALORANT.

His positive vibe and smart gameplay made him even more popular with the VALORANT fans, and everyone welcomed him wholeheartedly. And now, he is one of the biggest Twitch streamers in VALORANT.
