A NSW magistrate is due to sentence a Fortnite gamer who live-streamed himself assaulting his partner.

A Sydney Fortnite gamer who inadvertently live-streamed himself slapping his pregnant partner is due to be sentenced.

Luke James Munday, 27, pleaded guilty to common assault after he slapped Grace Campbell across the cheek and pulled her to the ground at their Oran Park home in December 2018.

Ahead of his sentencing in Picton Local Court on Monday, his lawyer argued Munday shouldn't have a conviction recorded for the offence.

"That seems low," magistrate Mark Douglass said.

Mr Douglass will sentence Munday after reading several documents submitted on Monday morning.

Munday, known as MrDeadMoth online, had been broadcasting his Fortnite playing on streaming platform Twitch when his partner asked him to stop playing and come to dinner.
