With the newly released Warzone Pacific Season 1, 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 $150k The Last Dance in Verdansk and the $400k World Series of Warzone saw big competitive names taking home the prize pool, raking in both the rewards and the glory. With Caldera now in full swing, we’ve already seen huge shifts among Warzone’s top stars.

Having played and competed in many renowned titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, H1Z1, and even Apex Legends, he quickly realized that he had the potential to turn gaming into something more than just a hobby.

Since he made the switch to CoD in 2020, he became the first player to reach a milestone $100K in total earnings from competitive Warzone tournaments.

Today, the battle royale veteran sits comfortably among the Top 3 highest-earners in Warzone.

2. Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – $333,640.26

Aydan firmly sits above most of the other Warzone competitors in terms of overall earnings.

In second place for much of Warzone’s first year, Aydan finally eclipsed HusKerrs and took the first spot back on March 14. He also became the first pro to pass the $300K mark in Warzone earnings alone.

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 truly made his mark on Verdansk by proving that his head is worth appreciating for more than its infamous dent.

An absolute demon, Aydan has comfortably shifted from duos with MuTeX and ZLaner to winning just about every 2v2 tournament with Rated. His top-tier performances have continued into Caldera as well, keeping him well above all but one other player on the highest-earners list.

1. Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren – $340,257.61

Engaging with just about every tournament since Warzone’s release, Tommey broke into the top three early in 2021. Consistent performances in September saw Tommey then cruise through into second place. The momentum didn’t stop there, however.

After months of consistent finishes and event wins, Tommey manages to retain the number one spot in January, 2022.
