Although hackers and stream snipers seem to have broken spirits across Call of Duty, the battle royale remains a premier title in the field. Here are the 20 highest-earning Warzone players in terms of total tournament winnings.
With numerous high-paying tournaments every month since the game‘s March 2020 debut, some players have stood out from the pack, making themselves the top Warzone earners and earning 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.
It may not feel as legitimized as esports like Apex Legends and Fortnite, but competitive Warzone continues to overcome cheater drama and the absence of a transparent SBMM system (or ranked league) to stay on top of Twitch’s viewership every week.
During recent months, groundbreaking events like the $200k HusKerrs Howl and the $300k World Series of Warzone saw big competitive names taking home the prize pool, raking in both the rewards and the glory.

Warzone’s top earners
Using data from esportsearnings.com, let’s 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. Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren – $217,495.82
As a former competitive CoD pro, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren was among the first veterans to dive head-first into Warzone upon release. Quickly finding his footing, Tommey has exploded into one of the scene’s biggest personalities and accomplished streamers.
Engaging with just about every tournament since Warzone’s release, Tommey broke into the top three in 2021 as Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas fell to fourth place.
Alongside his fellow 100 Thieves squadmate in Rated, the popular organization is constantly dominating headlines as a result of their Warzone success.
Rhys ‘Rated’ Price is a professional Warzone player and content creator who represents the esports organization, 100 Thieves.
Having competed in top-level Call of Duty since 2014, Rated is a veteran of the scene and an incredibly talented player. Despite achieving accolades in previous CoD titles, it’s Warzone where he truly began to thrive alongside his duo partner Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad.
Since they started teaming up, the pair have won well over $200,000 in prize money each, and have taken home multiple tournaments. With this dynamic duo holding the number one and two spots on the list, it’s going to be difficult to contest their positions.
1. Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – $273,015.25
In second place for much of Warzone’s first year, Aydan finally eclipsed HusKerrs and took the first spot back on March 14. He is also closing in on the 300k mark as he continues to pull away as the highest earner in 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.
