How Much Money Does FaZe Rain Earn?
FaZe Rain has over 5.1 million subscribers growing by 500 new subs daily and has accumulated over 940 million views since he started out in December 2010. The videos in the channel collectively get around 150,000 views per day. These views in turn generate an estimated revenue of around $270 per day ($100,000 a year) from YouTube ads.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like device played on, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, ad engagement etc.

Apart from ads, YouTubers also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads. Here they get paid based on watch time on their videos. The longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
Nordan gets extra income from selling FaZe merchandise through their website. He also gets a number of sponsors for his videos and they pay tens of thousands of dollars for some exposure for their products. Some of the companies he has worked with include GFuel, FanDuel, CSGO etc.
