With Call of Duty: Warzone continuing to look like the premier title in the battle royale world, we take a look at the top 20 highest earning players, as of October 28, 2020, in terms of total tournament winnings. 

Competitive Warzone has found its footing and run confidently to the top of Twitch’s viewership on a weekly basis. Months after the game’s March 2020 debut, some players have stood out from the pack and made an impressive salary’s worth of prize winnings. We’ve seen incredible new world records set, a host of celebrities get involved, and a variety of high-stakes, big-bucks tournaments.

Using data from esportsearnings.com, we take a look at the top 20 Warzone players in terms of tournament winnings. We’ll take a more in depth look at the top 3, and then provide a full list of the top 20.

3. Aydan – $89,104

Aydan Warzone

 

From Fortnite to Warzone, Aydan has been a longstanding figure in the battle royale sphere. But, for those unfamiliar with Epic Games’ third-person shooter, the charming beatboxer has truly made his mark on Verdansk by proving that his head is worth appreciating for more than its infamous dent.

First, the MK9 Bruen meta. Then, the Origin-12 meta. Aydan has an impeccable aim, game sense, and movement, but it’s his IQ that has made him the pioneer of numerous Warzone metas weeks before the competition.

As such, he has (with or without his duo, MuTeX) dominated numerous tournaments, sometimes using guns that feel off-meta until peers realize they are the meta.

If anyone could be a threat to overtake the No. 1 spot, it would be the controller-wielding Aydan, but it’s very unlikely that the gap can be closed.

2. SuperEvan – $94,170

Taking over from Ayden since our previous update, SuperEvan now comfortably sits at the second spot.

Recently competing in the HusKerrs Howl Grand final with teammate Biffle, the pair collectively took home a prize of $75,000, bringing Evan’s ranking up incredibly quickly. It’ll be interesting to see how things change with the ranking for Evan in the future.

With his earnings creeping up closer and closer to the top spot holder, it’ll still be challenging for him to overtake.

1. HusKerrs – $120,883

Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is a battle royale star who has also held a number of Warzone world records. He previously made a name for himself in both Black Ops 4’s Blackout and Apex Legends, but has since transitioned over to Warzone. And that transition has proved immensely profitable, as the calm, collected gamer has become the first Warzone player to collect over $100,000 in tournament winnings.

As easily the most consistent player on Verdansk, HusKerrs shoots straight, rotates with vehicles, and practically never loses his head amid pressure. That mentality complements his skill, resulting in numerous Warzone titles.

Even if you just added his winnings from one week of tournaments (in which he won Vikkstar’s Warzone Showdown and came second in Twitch Rivals‘ tourney), he would be No. 15 on the list. Beastly.


The full top 20 highest earning Warzone players are listed below. In total, across all 20, over $920,000 has been earned through Warzone tournaments. And those numbers are sure to increase, as prize pools continue to get larger and larger.

Since this is just a list of the highest earners cumulatively, it doesn’t include averages earned per event, otherwise, some players like Jukeyz and Biffle would likely be higher on the list.

Because Warzone was only released back in March, the money in the game continues to escalate with each passing month. As the tournaments get bigger and bigger, more viewers, competitors, and stars are likely to emerge.

We will continue to update this article’s figures as the competitive Warzone landscape develops.
