Gamersupps GG and Rogue Energy both are great energy drinks in the gaming industry. Being on the top of the gaming industry, these drinks come head to head in their formulation.
Both of the drinks have unique ingredients that make the drinks stand out, now the question is how well do they compare to each other?
You’ll find that their main differences are in their caffeine content, their nitrifying ingredients, and their price points. These are all important considerations in any energy drink so I suggest you keep on reading.
Ingredients of Gamersupps and Rogue Energy
Energy drinks are fueled up with sugar, carbohydrates, calories, and caffeine lets dive into the nitty-gritty details about the ingredients.
Between the two they are similar in calories, carbohydrates, and sugar. Their difference shows in artificial sweeteners as well as caffeine content, where Rogue has a higher caffeine level, and more inclusions in their vitamins and minerals.
Calories determine the energy you’ll be getting from the food or drink. It gives you energy but causes weight gain if not burned properly. And calories are mostly present in most of your daily consumption so it’s greatly helpful to not have the additional calories in your drink.
Here, you have that benefit as both drinks are calorie-free, so you can opt for either one of them and there won’t be a problem if you’re on a strict diet.
Now let’s look into the carbohydrates content of both drinks.
Carbohydrates are another form of calorie, which gives you a boost but causes weight gain when overconsumed. You’ll find that both drinks have zero carbs.
Since the carbohydrate content is zero for both drinks, you can opt for either of them, even being on a strict calorie diet.
Although carbohydrates are useful for your body, they are often included in daily meals that you consume, so there’s no need to look for them in your drinks too.
Now that both drinks are on the same page let’s look into the sugar content to see if any of them takes the lead or not.
Sugar has no nutritional value and is only used to add sweetness.
Sugar can cause a spike in blood sugar levels and you get to experience sugar crashes when the effect wears off. In addition, it’s closely linked to health complications such as diabetes and high blood sugar so it’s best to avoid any intense consumption when you can.
Luckily, you won’t be experiencing any crashes or health risks as both of the drinks are sugar-free.
Opting for sugar-free can be beneficial as consuming sugar for the long term has its side effects such as:
- Brain Fog
- Type 2 diabetes
- Weight gain
- Mood disorders
- Tooth Decay
- Heart diseases
To avoid such effects, the AHA has recommended a daily dose limit for men to be under 37g, for women to be 25g and for children to be 19g.
The omission of sugar doesn’t mean the brands have to compromise on taste. Let’s look into the not-so-secret formula that brands use to add taste to their drinks.
Artificial Sweeteners Used
Energy drinks use artificial sweeteners to sweeten their drink.
Both of the brands use a single artificial sweetener, these sugar substitutes don’t cause a spike in blood sugar level neither cause sugar crashes.
There are two types of artificial sweeteners, nutritive and non-nutritive.
Sucralose is a non-nutritive, high-intensity sweetener, which is 600 times sweeter than sugar. Whereas erythritol has only 70% of the sweetness of table sugar.
Both of these sweeteners have been declared safe to be consumed by humans by FDA so you won’t have to worry about having them in your drinks.
Now that we know how these drinks are sweetened, let’s look at what they go to offer us in caffeine content.
Rogue energy takes the lead here by being the higher caffeinated drink.
Caffeine is found in cocoa beans, coffee, and tea leaves.
It is a natural booster and a stimulating agent which stimulates the brain and central nervous system. This works by blocking off the body’s adenosine receptors, thus suppressing feelings of fatigue and tiredness.
In my opinion, 150mg to 200mg of caffeine is fine to give you its maximum effects, as it does the same for me. What I’d suggest you do is first to get to know if your body has a high tolerance to caffeine or not.
According to the FDA, a healthy adult can have up to 400mg of caffeine daily.
This is advised to avoid potential side effects of caffeine overdosing such as:
- Abnormal heart rhythm
Luckily, you won’t be overdosing on a single serving of any of these drinks as long as you keep within the limitations.
As for Gamersupps, you have a plus as you can have two servings of this drink and only cover half of the given daily limit.
If you have a high caffeine tolerance and want to feel maximum effects, Rogue Energy is your pick. if you find that your body receives caffeine with intensity, then Gamersupps is good enough for a good boost.

Nutrition Facts of Gamersupps and Rogue Energy
Now that we have discussed what caffeine and artificial sweeteners these drinks have let’s look into the nitrifying ingredients that both of the drinks shower us with.
Both drinks are no less in vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes and come head to head in this category, but the evident difference is Rogue Energy’s complexes which Gamersupps doesn’t have.
Vitamins are micronutrients needed mostly in small quantities to help regulate the functions of the body.
The B vitamins are essential in boosting your energy naturally and regulating your cognitive functions.
Both drinks have only one different vitamin in their formulation which makes a small gap. Either of the drinks in this category offers a good amount of benefits that can be good for consumption.
Now, let’s look into the mineral and electrolytes content.
Mineral and Electrolytes
You’d want to replenish the fluids that you’ve lost during long hours of gaming whilst stationary in the same place. Energy drinks can help you with that that’s why this category is important in its choice of inclusions.
Rogue clearly takes the lead by having more minerals and vitamins than Gamersupps.
The sodium helps regulate the thirst mechanism of your body and makes you drink more water, keeping you hydrated. Magnesium on the other hand is responsible for energy production in the body. These are benefits that Gamersupps simply can’t provide.
Now, let’s look into the content of the amino acid.
|(Rogue Energy Complex)
| (The Focus Complex)
Mucuna Pruriens Extract
Bacopa Monnieri Herb
Rogue Energy clearly takes the lead in being the drink with the most amino acids. It contains a Focus complex, Energy complex, and Recovery complex, all with ingredients meant to supplicate their goals.
Whereas Gamersupps only has a Focus complex which isn’t the best compared to the two others that Rogue has included, making Rogue the better pick in this category.
Taurine plays important functions in the heart and brain, and it helps support nerve growth. It’s also likely to benefit people with heart failure by lowering blood pressure and calming the nervous system.
Tyrosine plays a role in the reproduction of several brain chemicals and neurotransmitters, some of which are epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. It helps produce melanin, the pigment responsible for hair and skin color.
These are good inclusions in the Focus Complex but are a short compensation for everything else that Rogue has to offer.
Comparison of Flavors
Flavors are something that you always look forward to no matter what. In terms of flavors, Rogue energy takes the clear lead by offering a wider selection than Gamersupps.
Rogue Energy Flavors
Rogue has a total of 13 flavors that you can choose from.
- Rogue Energy Blue Raspberry
- Rogue Energy Watermelon
- Rogue Energy Cherry Limeade
- Rogue Energy Strawberry Kiwi
- Rogue Shake Caramel Vanilla Latte
- Rogue Shake Cookies ‘N Cream
- Rogue Energy Pink Lemonade
- Rogue Energy Grape Popsicle
- Rogue Energy Mango Pineapple

This isn’t the widest selection but it is comparably more than Gamersupps. It’s got a good mix of flavors you might already be familiar with and a few fun ones if you’re looking to be more spontaneous in your pick.
Gamersupps has 7 different flavors, this is quite a limited selection for a brand that’s known worldwide.
- Sour Patch Kids Blue Raspberry
- Sour Patch Kids Redberry
- Warheads Sour Watermelon
- Swedish Fish
- Sonic Ocean Water
- Sonic Cherry Limeade
As opposed to Rogue, Gamersupps is more focused on attracting its audience by naming the drinks in reference to games and candy, which is part of its brand but with their already limited selection, can make it hard to anticipate how the drink would actually taste.
Which drink is more affordable?
Price can become a huge deciding factor when it comes to any purchase, as they should be good investments in the long run.
Although these two are somewhat similar in their prices, they do offer different sizes of servings which offer different benefits.
|$29.99 (60 Servings)
|$32.99 (30 Servings)
|$35.99 (100 Servings)
Gamersupps offer a cheaper tub with more servings in comparison, with the availability of a tub of 100 servings for almost the same price as Rogue’s 30-serving tub.
This is a wide gap in their prices as a tub of 100 servings can last a long time and is a definite good deal for a long-term investment.
Rogue’s price is amongst the average ones in the market with 30 servings but in comparison to Gamersupps, Rogue can’t compete.
Where can you buy Gamersupps and Rogue Energy?

Buying online can be very convenient if you’re lazy and have extra money and time to spare on shipping, whereas hopping onto the nearest store, grabbing your favorite drink, and satisfying your cravings at the moment is way better than waiting for days for your drink to arrive.
This convenience isn’t available with either of the drinks. Rogue is available on more websites as opposed to Gamersupps which can make ordering a lot more difficult.

Gamersupps and Rogue energy are quite similar in formulation, the only difference is their caffeine content and their complexes. Both of the drinks live up to what they have claimed in the market.
If you want to go for a low caffeinated drink, with more servings and cheaper prices then Gamersupps can be your pick. But do remember that it is only available online.
However, if you have high caffeine tolerance you can opt for Rogue energy, it’s available online but is $1.0 per serving, making it fall on the expensive side.
With that, I hope you can decide which drink is better for you.
