Her family moved to Phoenix, Arizona when she was six years old, marking the start of her life in the US. From a young age, Alia developed an interest in video games, a passion that shaped her career. Her pseudonym was inspired by the character Sniper Wolf from the Metal Gear Solid series, one of her favorite childhood games.
Lia’s foray into the world of content creation began in early 2011 with a YouTube channel named “sexysexysniper.” After gaining 50,000 subscribers, she transitioned to a new channel, SSSniperWolf, in 2013. Initially focused on gaming, her content has evolved over the years to include reaction videos, TikTok compilations, and challenge videos.
Lia plays other games including Call of Duty, Halo, Overwatch, Until Dawn, Evil Within, and Destiny. Sssniperwolf now has over 1 billion views on YouTube and this number is still growing as she continues to build her fan base.
How much does she make on YouTube?
On average, SssniperWolf attracts around 180 million views every month on YouTube. The 30-year-old makes around $180,000 per month from YouTube ad revenue. This figure doesn’t include sponsorship income and sales from her merch store.
