Fortnite’s competitive scene was but a babe back in 2018 when esports was still taking shape. But now, there are so many Fortnite pros that you don’t even know where to start looking. With many youngsters trying aspiring to be the best, it’s hard not to be inspired by the building mechanics, quick flicks, and clutch plays of what a pro can do. It’s not hard to imagine that Epic Games might someday make a skin in the Fortnite Shop out fo these athletes. But just who is the best of the best? The ones considered to be the champions of Fortnite? Those that carry the torch that leads other people? To narrow down the suspects that we think you ought to take inspiration from, we’ve rounded up the three best Fortnite pros in the scene as of now.
1 – Ninja
At this point, it’s impossible for Fortnite players to not at least know who Ninja is. Ninja is one of the pioneers of Fortnite gaming and ultimately the person that made the game popular during its early years. With his skills and clever usage of Fortnite items, Ninja is a top tier Fortnite player that everyone should aspire to be. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins didn’t actually start his streaming career with Fortnite. In fact, his true love is Halo and was even active in the pro scene for it back then. But since his meeting with Fortnite, he never looked back. Ninja even hosted a Fortnite tournament in London with several casters. Although he didn’t make the cut for the Fortnite World Cup in 2019, his skill in the game is something that shouldn’t be overlooked. He has raked millions of dollars thanks to streaming alone; it’s safe to say that he’s one of Fortnite’s biggest streamers.
2 – Tfue
Tfue became a hot topic in 2019 thanks to issues that surfaced between him and FaZe Clan, but that just made him even more popular than he already was. Publicity is publicity, after all. The name Tfue rings a bell or two for anyone that follows competitive Fortnite. Turner Ellis Tenney, also known as Tfue, rose to prominence during 2018 just like other famous streamers such as Ninja at Myth. An FPS player through and through, he streamed games like H1Z1, Call of Duty, and even Destiny before he came to know Fortnite. But rather being an entertainer, Tfue focuses more on being an esports Fortnite player than anything else. In just two years, he has won numerous times in both offline and online tournaments. This includes the Fall Skirmish Event at Twitchcon 2018 and NerdOut Tournament. Tfue has cemented himself as one of the absolute best in Fortnite— and it shows in his follower count and skill.
3 – Bugha
While Bugha might look like a fresh face around these parts, he’s one of the rising stars in the Fortnite scene. Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf has been dubbed by fans and critics alike as the next “Ninja” thanks to his prowess and talent in the battle royale game. He’s famous for winning the first-ever Fortnite World Cup in 2019 which filled his pockets with $3 million dollars. His win led to his Twitch account getting massive followers. In just a month alone, Bugha gained 500,000 followers on Twitch. Needless to say, this overnight fame didn’t die out. In exactly one month after that, he had a total of 1.1 million followers. His win in the Fortnite World Cup didn’t just establish that he’s the best among the competition, but how by sheer practice and determination, you can achieve your goals.
