NaDeSHoT Net Worth
Matthew “Matt” Haag is known in the world of Call of Duty as NaDeSHoT. He’s only 22 years old but he’s making a fortune as a professional gamer. In 2014, his annual income grew to about $1 million. As of 2015, NaDeSHoT amassed net worth of $2 million. Let’s look together on his incredible way to success.
As a teenager, Matt Haag had only a part-time job, similar to many of his peers. He was flipping burgers at McDonalds for a small salary. First he tried competitive gaming in Halo 2 and Gears of War. At the age of sixteen, Matt switched to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. In 2010, he joined OpTic Clan competitive team and in 2014 became their captain.
Call of Duty prize money could be very interesting amount of cash. NaDeSHoT won almost $41 thousand just from tournament prize pools. In 2015, he so far won $24 thousand (as of June). Although that’s nice sum, it isn’t by far his biggest source of income and net worth.
Haag makes much more from sponsor endorsements. He promotes Red Bull, Scuf Gamin, Astro Gaming, and other companies. He has also his own YouTube channel. NaDeSHoT has over 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube and over 1 million on Twitter account. This translates to another powerful cash stream from online advertisement.
As a rich pro-video gamer, Matt is definitely an idol for many young boys. Because who wouldn’t love to be paid so much money for playing video games? We certainly wouldn’t mind.
