Players have made a lot of cash with Fortnite.

With the news that Fortnite is expanding its esports umbrella even further in 2018, now might be a good time to look at the current top earners.

While Ninja is perhaps the most well-known Fortnite streamer, you might be surprised to see he doesn’t even fall in the top 20 in terms of highest earners.

Instead, you’ll see professional players from Liquid, FaZe, etc. hold the fort down.

If Ninja is the most popular Fortnite streamer then Tfue is certainly the second most well-known and an argument could be made he is the most popular.

The lowest earner in the top 20 has made more than $140,000, indicating becoming a Fortnite pro could very well earn you a nice living.

Before the Summer, Fall and Winter Skirmishes, the main way for Fortnite players to make money were through Fortnite Friday.

This event was hosted by YouTuber Daniel “Keemstar” Keem and a prize pool was offered each week to all of the players who participated.

Keemstar has shown a willingness to bring back Fortnite Friday but nothing has been set in stone as of yet.
