Although hackers and stream snipers seem to have broken spirits across Call of Duty, the battle royale remains a premier title in the field. As of June 16, 2021 — here are the 20 highest-earning Warzone players in terms of total tournament winnings. 

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.

With numerous high-paying tournaments every month since 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.

In June, with the $200k HusKerrs Howl having drawn to a close, some household competitive names took home the lion’s share, raking in the rewards and the glory.

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. Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas – $169,941.68

Known throughout the esports scene, HusKerrs hosts tournaments for other members.

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. That transition has proved immensely profitable, as the calm, collected gamer became the first Warzone player to collect over $100,000 in tournament winnings.

As one of the most decorated players 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.

While he held the top spot for much of Warzone’s first year, he’s fallen to third place in June behind Aydan and Rated.

2. Rhys ‘Rated’ Price – $176,784.42

Rated has taken the number two spot on the top earner’s list.

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.

Over the last five months, the pair have won over $100,000 in prize money each and have taken home multiple tournaments. With this dynamic duo holding the number one and two spot on the list, it’s going to be difficult to contest their positions.

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 has also surpassed the 200k 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.

An absolute demon, Aydan has comfortably shifted from duos with MuTeX and Zlaner to winning just about every 2v2 tournament with Rated. Sitting atop our Warzone power rankings for consecutive months, it’s no surprise he was able to reach that number one spot over time.
