1. Bugha

Bugha Best Fortnite Players In The World
The best Fortnite player of all time Bugha

Fortnite World Cup in the summer of 2019 is known as the biggest tournament with the most participants and the biggest prize pool in the history of Esports. And the winner of this tournament was no one but Bugha, the best Fortnite player in the world. Since then, Bugha has always remained as the best Fortnite competitor in the NA East region and the world as well.

Frankly speaking, it would take a long run by other players to unseat Bugha as the greatest Fortnite player of all time. Bugha used to win up to $3 million in a tournament, making him the winningest Fortnite player.

2. Aqua

Aqua Best Fortnite Players In The World
The most consistent Fortnite player in EU region, Aqua

Aqua is known as the most consistent player in Europe – the hardest region to gain success at the highest level. At World Cup, he won the final 2 games to get a treasure of $1.5 million in the Duo World Cup, with Nyrox, making him the second-highest Fortnite earner, behind Bugha.

If there is anyone to surpass Bugha's income in the future, Aqua clearly stands the highest chance to do so.

3. EpikWhale

Epikwhale Best Fortnite Players In The World
Other than Fortnite, Epikwhale also streams a variety of games on Twitch.

All-time, EpikWhale ranks 5th in terms of career earnings from Fortnite. He experienced the most success at the World Cup, where he finished 3rd as a solo and 12th as a duo. EpikWhale has been dominant in what is considered a weak region in NA West, but still wins enough to be considered one of the best.

In the FNCS tournaments, EpikWhale continued the success that he experienced at the World Cup. In trios, EpikWhale was a part of the team that finished in 4th. The next season, he finished in 4th again in the FNCS squads finals, along with Edgey, Cented, and Rehx. He remained partnered with Rehx for FNCS duos, where they took home the crown as the best duo in NA West.

In solos, EpikWhale had his “worst” finish, where he still finished within the top 10 at 6th in the West. He has earned over $1.5 million from tournaments in Fortnite, and the majority of it was won at the World Cup or since then in major tournaments.

4. Zayt

Zayt Best Fortnite Players In The World
This gamer Zayt used to announce his early retirement and came back 3 weeks after that.

Zayt is regarded as one of the best leaders and smartest minds in the world of Fortnite. In any prestigious competition, it felt like a guarantee that his name was going to be in the top of the leaderboards. To cite an example, Zayt is one of the only Fortnite players to finish in the top 10 for all four FNCS tournaments.

What’s more, he also organizes practice and events for a lot of Fornite players in NA East. With his hard work and talent, Zayt totally deserves his $1.1 million income so far.

5. Saf

Saf Best Fortnite Players In The World
Together with Zayt, Saf forms the best Fortnite duo in the world.

Saf is one of the most successful Fortnite players in North America and is a part of the best Fortnite duo in the world. Along with his partner, Zayt, they have finished as a top 5 duo in every major duo tournament since World Cup qualifiers at the beginning of 2019. Saf is one of the best mechanical players in the world, with perfect building and editing skills. He can outbuild and kill anyone in the world at any given time, making him dangerous in any position during a game.

Saf is also one of the most consistent players in the world. He has been a top competitor since 2018 and won FNCS duos with Zayt just over a month ago. Saf has over $1 million in earnings from Fortnite in 2 and a half years, putting him 11th all-time in earnings in Fortnite. In Squads, Trios, and Duos, Saf was a part of a team that finished within the top 5 in each FNCS tournament, proving he is one of the best team players in Fortnite.

6. Bizzle

Bizzle Best Fortnite Players In The World
Over two years after he joined the game, Bizzle is now one of the best Fortnite gamers in the world.

Bizzle is an OG competitive player and has been one of the World’s best Fortnite gamers since he began competing in the summer of 2018. Since then, Bizzle has been one of the most consistent and successful pro players in North America. He has shown that he can dominate as a solo, or work perfectly well within a team mode such as trios or squads. Going into the World Cup, Bizzle was one of the fan favorites to take the solo competition home and ended up placing 23rd overall. He followed up his success in the summer of 2019 with a strong run in the most recent Fortnite tournaments.

In the FNCS competitions, Bizzle has cemented himself as at least a top 10 player in North America. He finished 3rd in squads, and 12th in solos, making him one of the best performers in NA East. Many other names were in consideration for this last spot. You could make an argument for a lot of different pro players for any of the 6-10 spots on this list, however, Bizzle has the longevity and recent success that gave him the nod over some great players like Chap, Dubs, Stretch, and Nyrox.

7. Mongraal

Mongraal Best Fortnite Players In The World
May I present King of content in EU, Mongraal!

Mongraal is considered the king of content in Europe because of his immense popularity and success as a pro player. He became popular at the end of 2018 into 2019 when his Twitch streams became very popular. Mongraal would stream himself playing the game nonstop and showed the world his improvement in the land of Fortnite every day. When Mongraal began rising into fame, he was just 14 and showed that people that age is no barrier on the way to be the best Fortnite player in the world.

Mongraal quickly amassed a large following after winning many major tournaments and cash cups in Europe and carried that success over into the World Cup. He qualified multiple times as both a solo and a duo for the World Cup. At the World Cup, this young talent continued his dominance and finished 13th as a solo and 6th as a duo.

After that, Mongraal began to stream less as he focused on sharpening his skills. In that time, Mongraal has competed in every major tournament in Europe for Fortnite. In every team FNCS, he did not finish worse than 10th, and his worst placement was in solo FNCS, where he took 26th. Mongraal’s sustained success at the highest level has not been matched by many, and that is the reason why he is 7th on this list today.

8. Tfue

Tfue Best Fortnite Players In The World
Surprisingly, Tfue used to be the richest Fortnite player in the world during 2019.

Tfue was once the king of competitive Fortnite and remains the face of Fortnite in terms of streaming. This guy has the largest fanbase of all, consistently averaging 30K viewers daily. From 2018 to the early parts of 2019, Tfue was widely considered the best Fortnite player in the world. He won many solo and duo tournaments during the summer of 2018, such as the Summer and Fall Skirmishes.

Going into the World Cup qualifiers in the spring of 2019, Tfue had the most earnings in Fortnite and was the most popular person in the entire world of gaming. Since that point, Tfue has not had the same amount of success as he did in the early part of his Fortnite career.

He qualified for World Cup as a solo player but did not finish well at the World Cup, finishing 67th. He has experienced some success in the FNCS series since the World Cup but is not one of the absolute best players in the world. In Squads, he finished 7th overall but did not finish in the top 15 for any of the other FNCS competitions since the World Cup.

He is still the most popular player in the world of Fortnite but has not sustained the level of success he experienced in the first year of Fortnite. We will see if he can turn it around before he falls out of the top 10.

9. Benjyfishy

Benjyfishy Best Fortnite Players In The World
Who could imagine this 16-year-old boy is among the top 10 Fortnite players on Earth?

Bejnyfishy is the third European pro and the second British player on the list. He grew into fame alongside Mr. Savage as the world’s most lovable duo competing on the road to the World Cup. Benjy was a fan-favorite because he was very passionate about Fortnite and used the competitive side of the game to support his family, which is insanely mature for a 16-year-old who acquired hundreds of thousands in a short amount of time.

At the World Cup, Benjy continued to steal the hearts of fans with his chubby smile and great gameplay. He finished 14th in duos and 25th as a solo, showing he is one of the most talented Fortnite players in the world. He became an instant legend within the competitive Fortnite community and is widely regarded as one of the best.

In the FNCS competitions, Benjy backed up his play with consistent placements in Europe. In trios, he teamed up with two of Europe’s best, Mongraal and Mitr0, and finished 10th. As for squads mode, Benjy led his squad to the 2nd placement in Europe, along with Mongraal, Nayte, and Wolfiez. In duos and solos, Benjy did not finish in the top 10 but did reach the finals place within the top 50 players in Europe. Going forward, Benjy needs to continue winning events and playing consistently to stay as one of the top 10 Fortnite players in the world.

10. Mr. Savage

Mr Savage Best Fortnite Players In The World
The last name in top list today is Mr. Savage.

Mr. Savage burst onto the scene in Fortnite from the end of 2018 into the beginning of 2019.  The 15-year-old pro player from Norway forms one of the most popular duos in the World with Benjyfishy. They dominated European World Cup qualifiers and gained millions of followers in the process.

Mr. Savage qualified for both solos and duos for the World Cup, showing that he is one of the best in the world. He did not have the best showing at the World Cup but still walked away with hundreds of thousands in cash and a massive following. Savage is still a top competitor in Europe and streams to around 20K viewers daily.

In FNCS trios, Savage was part of a team that finished in the top 10 and added another player for squads where they finished in the top 5 for FNCS. The last LAN event for Fortnite, Dreamhack Anaheim 2019, was won by Mr. Savage as one of the last events for Chapter 2: Season 1 of Fortnite. He carried that success over to FNCS Duos and Solos, where he finished 12th and 15th respectively.

Above are the ten best Fortnite players in the world who earn the most money from this game by 2021. With an increasing number of young talents stepping into this title, it won't take long for Bugha to loose his first position as the best Fortnite player in the world. However, whoever may dethrone him must spend an immense period of time practicing and competing in major tournaments ahead.
