Top 20 highest earning Fortnite pro players ahead of World Cup finals - Updated June 17, 2019

Fortnite Battle Royale may be a relatively new entry into the world of esports, but its prize pools have been absolutely massive. With $30 million up for grabs in the Fortnite World Cup, let's take a look at the top 20 winningest pro players by prize money heading into the tournament's finals.

Epic Games has faced criticism for some of their decision-making when it comes to Fortnite esports, but one area they can't be criticized for is the amount of money they have invested.

The massive prize pools have already seen popular pros like FaZe Clan's Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis 'Cloak' Lapore win over $400,000 in only 12 months of competition, while Ghost Gaming's Timothy 'Bizzle' Miller has already eclipsed $500,000 - solidifying himself at top spot. But, others aren't too far behind...

Tfue is one of the most popular Fortnite players in the world - and one of the highest earning.

Bizzle surpassed Tfue for the top spot, after the latter opted to miss the ESL Katowice Royale to stream instead, leaving the door open for another pro to take number one in earnings. However, Tfue, and every other pro player for that matter, will all have a shot at taking the top spot when the Fortnite World Cup finals come around. 

Epic Games revealed they would offer $100 million in prizes for the 2018-19 competitive season alone - $30 million of which has been assigned to the World Cup, as mentioned earlier. The first place finisher in the solos event will walk away with a ridiculous $3 million - with $50,000 being guaranteed just for securing a spot at the live finals.

There will undoubtedly be a major shake-up in the rankings after the highly anticipated event - which also features a duo tournament. There may also be a few movers and shakers in the weeks leading up to the tournament as there are weekly prizes for the online qualifiers before everything kicks off in July.

Currently, the top 20 list of highest-earning Fortnite pros is headlined by professionals players for Team Liquid, FaZe Clan, Ghost Gaming and many more recognizable esports organizations but there are a few other names there too. 

Thanks to the tracking of esportsEarnings, fans can see just which of their favorite players has pocketed the most cash from their performances at tournaments.
