With Call of Duty: Warzone still looking like the next big thing in the battle royale world, we take a look at the top 20 highest earning players, in terms of total tournament winnings. 

Competitive Warzone is still finding its footing, but that hasn’t stopped some players breaking away from the pack within the first few months of tournaments. We’ve seen incredible new world records set, and a host of celebrities try their hand at CoD’s second battle royale effort.

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. HusKerrs – $42,133

HusKerrs has played competitively in a number of BRs.

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.

He currently sits in third place the pack, taking the bronze medal spot from Vikkstar with a number Warzone Wednesday wins and second place at the Royal Ruckus event. With over $42k total tournament winnings, he is clearly one of the world’s best when it comes to CoD’s sophomore battle royale effort.

2. WarsZ – $42,562

Second on the list is Kacey ‘WarsZ’ Channer, the British 19 year old who made his name as partner of Vikkstar123 in early Warzone Wednesday tournaments. Together, the duo put up back-to-back-to-back victories, elevating both into the top 3.

While Vikkstar has since dropped out of the medal positions, WarsZ remains, streaming regularly on Twitch and amassing over $42.5k in winnings.

1. Jukeyz – $44,695

Originally sixth on this list, British Warzone player Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James jumped to second with a host of positive placements, and now sits on top.

The most notable of these finishes is undoubtedly first in the $150k Warzone Royal Ruckus tournament alongside London professional CoD player Skrapz. Despite the controversy surrounding crossplay and the event, the win saw Jukeyz take home roughly $10,000.

He is currently over $2,000 ahead of second place, meaning we can expect him to stay put for some time, especially if his incredible placements continue.


The full top 20 highest earning Warzone players are listed below. As you can see, a whole host of pro players make the cut. Crimsix comes in at 11th, while ex-CoD world champion TeePee sits in 13th. Crim’s Dallas Empire teammate Tommey, likewise, just makes the cut.

Because Warzone was only released back in March, there is not nearly as much money in the game as others. However, as more players flock to the game and more tournaments take place, we can expect to see more and more money being won.

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

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
