Fortnite first appeared in the gaming industry in 2017 as the newest Battle Royale game to take the gaming world by storm. Fortnite has grown into one of the most popular Esports in the world, awarding more money yearly than any other competitive video game since its debut three years ago. Players in the Fortnite eSports game have achieved unprecedented levels of fame, money, and prestige. The top ten highest-paid Fortnite players have earned a total of more than $3.5 million dollars. In 2020, the most popular Twitch broadcasting channels are Fortnite channels, and it's not even close.
In this post, we'll look at the most successful Fortnite players of all time, as well as the reasons behind their success. I'll take into account their total earnings in Fortnite, as well as their success in big events like the 2019 Fortnite World Cup. So, without further ado, let's have a look at our list of the Top 10 Fortnite players of all time.
There seems to be just one choice for the king of competitive Fortnite at the top of the list. There hasn't been a larger event in Esports than the Fortnite World Cup in the summer of 2019 since its debut in 2017. At that time in Esports history, it had the most competitors and the biggest prize fund. Bugha, on the other hand, dominated the event.
Bugha started the World Cup qualifications in the first place and ended first after the tournament was completed. Bugha was the best performance in the first week of qualifying and was the first North American to qualify for the World Cup. Bugha proceeded to compete and qualify for solos for the World Cup during the following nine weeks of qualifications.
Bugha maintained his domination in the most competitive Fortnite queue ever during the real World Cup. He won easily in the opening game of the solo tournament, with the most kills in the game, giving him a comfortable lead over the rest of the field. Bugha never relinquished the advantage after then, finishing in the top 10 for the remainder of the games to easily win the solos World Cup. Bugha earned a total of $3 million in that event, making him the most successful Fortnite player in history.
Bugha has been one of the leading contenders in the NA East area since then. He has qualified for and participated in every major FNCS event, placing in the top ten in both the duos and Winter Royale 2019 competitions. To dethrone Bugha as the greatest Fortnite player of all time, another player will have to go on a huge run.
The second half of the dynamic pair narrowly misses out on number six on the list to his mate. To Saf's jelly, Zayt is the peanut butter. They're both superstars on their own, but together they're a force to be reckoned with. Zayt is peanut butter because he has done better on his own, similar to how peanut butter is slightly ahead of jelly. Zayt oversees the competitive Fortnite scene in North America, arranging to practise and tournaments for the region's other players. Zayt is one of Fortnite's brightest brains and greatest commanders, and he's had a lot of success as a result.
Saf and Zayt were in the first position in duos in the World Cup until the last game when they were killed early and dropped down the leaderboards. They came in fourth place overall and took home a little under $1 million. Zayt competed in the World Cup as a Solo as well, finishing 36th.
Following the World Cup, Zayt maintained his Fortnite domination in North America. Zayt's name was almost always at the top of the leaderboards in any major tournament. It seemed inescapable. Zayt finished fourth in the trios, behind Saf and Zyfa. He teamed up with Commandment, Highsky, and Saf in Squads, all of whom are excellent solo players. They came in fourth place once again. It was the same tale with the same individuals in duos. During Chapter 2: Season 2, Zayt and Saf collaborated and won the FNCS pair finals, showing that they are the greatest tandem in North America. Zayt finished ninth in the following FNCS, making him one of just four players in the world to finish in the top ten in each of the four FNCS events since the World Cup.
Zayt is Mr. Consistency and leads competitive Fortnite in the NA East region, earning him the title of second-best Fortnite player on the planet.
Aqua is the highest European pro on the list, coming in at number three. Aqua is the most dependable player in the European area, which is often regarded as the most difficult to succeed in at the top level. Despite the high level of competition, Aqua has excelled, despite the skill of the opponents he is competing against.
Aqua was the driving factor behind his duo's incredible comeback, winning the last two games to win the Duo World Cup with Nyrox. After earning $1.5 million, he became the second-highest earner in Fortnite history, after Bugha.
Aqua has been one of the best Fortnite players in the world since the World Cup, regardless of location. Aqua, together with Tschinken and Stompy, won the FNCS trios title for the second time. Aqua got away with another large payday in Squads, finishing in the top ten squads in Europe. Aqua has again shown that he is one of the finest of the best in duos. In FNCS Duos, he finished fourth in Europe alongside Stompy. He followed up his excellent results with a third-place finish in the FNCS Solos competition throughout Europe.
Bejnyfishy is the third European pro on the list, as well as the second British player. On their way to the World Cup, Benjy and Mr. Savage were known as the world's most charming pair. Benjy was a fan favorite because he was devoted to Fortnite and utilized the competitive aspect of the game to support his family, which is very mature for a 16-year-old who amassed hundreds of thousands of dollars in such a short period of time.
Benjy continues to win fans' hearts during the World Cup with his fat grin and excellent performance. He placed 14th in duos and 25th in solos, demonstrating that he is one of the best players in the world. Within the competitive Fortnite scene, he became an immediate legend and is generally considered as one of the greatest.
Benjy's performance in the FNCS events was followed up with regular places throughout Europe. He finished 10th in the trios alongside two of Europe's finest, Mongraal and Mitr0. Benjy, together with Mongraal, Nayte, and Wolfiez, guided his team to second place in Europe. Benjy did not rank in the top ten in duos or solos, but he did place in the top 50 players in Europe in the finals. To remain in the top five players in the world, Benjy must continue to win tournaments and play regularly in the future.
Tfue was once the king of competitive Fortnite and is still the streaming face of the game. While playing competitive Fortnite, Tfue has the biggest following in all of Fortnite, averaging 30K daily views.
Tfue was generally regarded as the greatest Fortnite player in the world in 2018 and early 2019. During the summer of 2018, he won a number of solo and pair competitions, including the Summer and Fall Skirmishes. Tfue earned the highest revenue in Fortnite and was the most popular person in the whole gaming world going into the World Cup qualifications in the spring of 2019.
Tfue hasn't had the same level of success since then as he had in the early stages of his Fortnite career. He qualified for the World Cup as a single player, however, he finished 67th in the tournament. Since the World Cup, he has had some success in the FNCS series, but he is not one of the top players in the world. He placed 7th overall in Squads but has not been in the top 15 in any of the other FNCS events since the World Cup.
He is still the most popular player in Fortnite, but he has not maintained the level of success he had in the game's first year.
