Who is Novritsch?
Novritsch was born in Austria on 24 March 1993, so under the zodiac sign of Aries and holding Austrian nationality – he is popular for his channel on YouTube and for being a great airsoft sniper.
Early life and education
Novritsch hasn’t shared anything about his early life with the public, as he prefers to keep his personal matters to himself. He also never talks about his parents or his siblings, which is the reason why fans believe that he is an only child.
Novritsch joined the Austrian military at a very young age, and served as a scout sniper, which is why he knows a lot about sniper rifles, its ammunition, and numerous other things military. He matriculated from a local high school in Austria, and then decided to concentrate on his online career, instead of enrolling at college and pursuing a degree.
Career on YouTube
Novritsch’s online career began on 7 February 2012, when he launched his YouTube channel, but it took him nearly 10 months to upload his first video – the channel is currently subscribed by nearly four million people, and the videos uploaded onto it have been viewed by more than 550 million times. One of his most popular videos is entitled “Airsoft Sniper Gameplay – Scope Cam – Urban Sniper 2”, having been viewed more than 28 million times.
Novritsch has created his own sniper BBs (airsoft guns ammo) – he states that ‘BBs are the most underrated factor when it comes to accuracy. No matter how perfect your airsoft gun is, it will always be limited by the tolerances and the weight of the BBs used.’ It took him a couple of months of adjusting to make his BBs as he wanted them, and now says that they are the best sniper BBs he has ever shot. It took him an entire year after the official release of his product to prove that it is environment friendly, and that it is bio degradable.
What is Airsoft?
Airsoft is a sport of wearing war clothes, splitting into two teams, and fighting each other with airsoft guns which are using special spherical plastic projectiles launched with the aid of air (which is how the sport got its name).
Most of the BBs (airsoft bullets) do not leave a mark on the target, and are therefore not always visible, which is why the game relies on an honor system, meaning that a person has to say if he or she has been shot, and then leaves the game or the round. There are several types of airsoft guns, and all of them are made to resemble real guns as much as possible.
There are many ways and styles in which the game can be played, including short-term skirmishes, made-up scenarios, historical scenarios, close quarters battle, field and military simulations. Most of the time the fights take place outdoors, but can also be organized indoors – people who have experience playing first person shooter video games have so far shown far better skills at Airsoft than those who do not play these kind of video games.
The equipment used during the game is to keep you safe, and so far not a single person has suffered a serious injury – some countries even have velocity or kinetic energy restrictions, and if a gun shoots over the allowed velocity, it can be confiscated.
Airsoft was first launched in Japan in the early 1970s.

Going back to the army
Novritsch seems to have missed the life he had in the army, and therefore decided to re-enlist in March 2017. He is still a member, as he sees the job as the only one that he’s happy doing.
Personal life and relationships
Novritsch is very secretive when it comes to his love life and hasn’t shared anything about his past or present girlfriends, if he has any. A lot of people have been commenting on his videos on YouTube, and asking about his relationships, but Novritsch seems not to be paying attention to these comments, and remains largely secretive about his love life.
Unlike other YouTubers, Novritsch has never been rumored to be gay (maybe because people know he is good with a sniper rifle and might locate them), but is instead rumored to be going out with one of his Army friends. His fans have also stated that the girl who he is dating is still in the Army, and was the main reason of his reenlistment. None of this has been confirmed by Novritsch – he appears to be single, he hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
What is Novritsch real name?
Novritsch is one of the most secretive people on YouTube, as he hasn’t even shared his real name with his fans during all these years of uploading videos. Even though a lot of them are very curious about his real name, others enjoy the mystery, and are actually supporting the popular YouTuber’s decision to not share his name online. Currently, there are only a couple of other popular YouTubers who have managed to keep their real name a secret.
Other likes and interests
Novritsch seems not to have many other interests than shooting sniper rifles, and making videos for his YouTube channel. Even though he was finished with the Army and was making videos which were loved by his fans on YouTube, he became bored quite soon and went back to the Army (or it was because of a girl). Even now, he doesn’t seem to be doing anything else except for being in the Army, and making videos for his channel.
Appearance and net worth
Novritsch is currently 26 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, but his height and weight are not known.
According to authoritative sources, Novritsch’s current net worth is estimated to be over $1 million and is steadily rising thanks to the number of subscribers he has gathered on his Instagram account. Besides that, he is also making a nice amount of money from selling his own merchandise, which is only related to snipers and airsoft equipment, and from his army pay.
Every once in a while I love to assemble an entire SSG24 myself, when I'm over in Taiwan. Whoever received SSG24s with the serial numbers #N93N3 and#B75H3. I assembled your guns ; ) pic.twitter.com/ZJxVoOa32B
