Top Fortnite Players 2020 are the cream of the crop. The best there is out there.
2019 has been a big year for Fortnite and its players alike. We've seen shake-ups the likes of which have been unprecedented in the game's short history. Tyler "Ninja" Blevins' move from Twitch to Mixer shook-up the scene. Epic Games released Fortnite Chapter 2, expanding upon its original game to give players a clean, fresh start.
Now, it's time to see which of these players rank supreme. Here's our list for the top ten best Fortnite players of 2020.
10 Best Players in 2020
1. Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf
At just 17 years old, Bugha has made quite the impact on Fortnite's corner of the esports scene. Coming away from the Fortnite World Cup with such a high ranking is no small feat for anyone—let alone someone as young as him. While he may have difficulty defending his title, we have a feeling there's much more to see from this contender in the future.
2. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins
Of course, we have to mention the original poster boy for the franchise—everyone's favorite streaming platform jumper. Ninja has only grown in popularity over the years, being able to rake in ten of thousands of live viewers with ease. It's difficult to separate this household name and his fame from Epic Games' most popular shooter game.
3. Turner “TFue” Tenney
TFue has consistently pulled his weight in Fortnite's corner and refers to himself as “one of the best Fortnite players in history.” This isn't just a meaningless boast, either. TFue is one of the highest grossing Fortnite players in the world—even without help from his former friends at FaZe Clan. There's no doubt his popularity will only grow.
4. Ali "TSM Myth" Kabbani
Myth is known as yet another one of the most popular Fortnite streamers in the world. He holds quite the reputation as one of the best builders in the game and has one of the most loyal fan bases within the community.
5. Dennis “FaZe Cloak” Lepore
FaZe Cloak currently serves as the FaZe Clan's Fortnite team Captain and has shown exceptional leadership skills in that regard. He is widely known as one of the world's best players. While he doesn't have the audience that Myth, TFue, or Ninja have just yet, he's proven that he can amass a following with ease.
6. Darryle "TSM Hamlinz" Hamlin
Hamlinz is known as the second best builder in Fortnite and has been known for his incredible win/loss ratio. At one point, this percentage was near 50%, meaning he won one out of every two games he participated in. He's been a part of the esports community long before Fortnite and will most likely remain long after it's gone.
7. David “aqua” W.
While not quite a household name yet, aqua has shown that he definitely has the skills to be. He finished top of the Solos in the Fortnite World Cup and is often heading leaderboards in the European circuit. With any luck, we'll be seeing aqua's name all over the battlefield before long.
8. Benjy “Benjyfishy” Fish
European player Benjyfishy is also making waves at a mere 15 years old. He placed well in the Solos and Duos of the Fortnite World Cup and has been showing off an impressive track record since then. His rise has been steady and, if he continues on this trajectory, he will most likely become the one of the biggest leaders in the competitive scene.
9. Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson
Mongraal is already making a name for himself. He shows fantastic potential as a leader and shot caller in-game and is known to be a quick thinker. He has impeccable game-sense and an impressive grasp on Fortnite's mechanics as a whole. We wouldn't be surprised to see his name appear more frequently in the future.
10. Cody "Clix" Conrod
So far, Clix has taken home six first place tournament titles and finished 18th in the Fortnite World Cup. He's famous on social media for his skills in-game and likely will become a great contender in the future. All he needs is one big win to cement his place in the rankings.
