It’s time for another monthly installment of our Tubefilter Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Gaming Channels Chart and a very familiar channel is back on top.

Chart Toppers

Felix Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie channel is back in the #1 spot after a brief stint in the second place position. The twentysomething Swedish gamer’s prolific online video collection of primarily Let’s Play videos that now has well over 36 million subscribers scored more than 351.8 million views during the 30 days of April. TheDiamondMinecart wasn’t too far behind. Great Britain’s most viewed YouTube gaming channel saw a slight 4% dip in its view count to end the 30-day month with more than 290.4 million of them.

PopularMMOs maintained its third-place spot. The top gaming channel from the U.S. received a 4% increase in its view count to close out the month with more than 285.3 million views. Up next is markiplierGAME. The second U.S.-based gamer in the Top 100 took a 10% hit in its view count to bottom out with 221.9 million views on the month.

And rounding out the Top 5 yet again is JackSepticEye. The Irish gamer saw a 2% dip in views to end April with nearly 219.3 million.

A Closer Look At The Top 10

Our friends over at Tiltify put together a snazzy video with clips from the Top 10 Gaming Channels this month. Check it out for a primer on the kind of content the most viewed gaming channels on YouTube distribute and/or to catch scenes from your favorite channels.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this month goes to Call Of Duty.

The YouTube outpost of the incredibly popular Activision, first-person shooter video game franchise had a great month in terms of online video views. A two-minute-and-seven-second official trailer for CoD‘s upcoming and highly anticipated Black Ops III was an instantaneous hit with fans who can’t wait until the title’s release on November 6, 2015. The video quickly amassed an eight-figure view count and helped the Call Of Duty YouTube channel to a 319% month-over-month increase in views, more than 30.2 million views on the month, and the #65 spot on the worldwide gaming chart.
