Sidemen who he currently lives with and is commonly known in the British and Minecraft YouTube industry. He is also a part of a group of Minecraft friends called "The Pack" who play Minecraft together.
Not only has he uploaded daily videos on his main channel daily for four consecutive years, he has also kept with 136, almost daily episodes/streams of "Minecraft" SMP server called "How To Minecraft" with other YouTubers. How To Minecraft Season 4 recently ended on the 23rd of September in 2017, and in the same year Season 5 was launched on the 8th of December.
During his secondary school years he got 12A* in his GCSE's and as a result was offered a place at University College London to study Natural Sciences. However, Vikkstar decided to pursue a career in YouTube instead and declined the offer, instead taking a gap year.
Vikkstar was first a Call of Duty content creator, primarily uploading videos of matches with his friends and montages. Eventually he started playing Grand Theft Auto V with a group of friends which eventually became the Sidemen in late 2013.
Two years after he created his main channel, Vikkstar gained an interest in Minecraft and decided to create a second channel dedicated to it. Through this channel he became very good friends with other Minecraft YouTubers, eventually forming The Pack.
Vikk is also known for his raw chicken fights where in his Minecraft Hunger Games, during a deathmatch, he would punch his enemies to death with Marina Joyce, mostly with setting them on fire and saying, "I need to cook my chicken". Not anymore because he only does How To Minecraft.
His most popular series across all three channels is his GTA 5 Funny Moments series, with over 700 videos starting in 2013 to present day. However, the series uploads have decayed from frequent short uploads in the beginning to longer videos with weekly uploads. Recurring YouTubers are Miniminter, Behzinga and Zerkaa, although Wizzite has increasingly featured in more videos.
Vikkstar is a large fan of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite, sometimes uploading four to six hour long streams. Due to his promotion of PUBG, Vikkstar was invited to play at the 2017 Gamescom Invitational for PUBG and at the Twitchcon H1Z1 Invitational 2017.
As Fortnite gained popularity, Vikkstar changed his main channels content to be nearly all Fortnite videos. This rescued his dropping view count and passed 4 million subscribers.
The 2019 Minecraft resurgence caused vikkstar to start uploading Minecraft videos again on his Vikkstar123HD channel. He has seen great success with the H6M series, Getting 1.4 million stream views for the first video of the series. He's consistantly getting 500k views on every episode.
