The Top Five Fortnite Players in the World

Community Apr 11, 2022

Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the Esports community right now. Almost every gamer has played it once in his lifetime or is pursuing it professionally. Every year, there are various tournaments and leagues that are held for Fortnite players, and in fact, the largest tournament is the Fortnite World Cup, which is held every year. After the World Cup, there are always changes in who is the best player in the Fortnite arena. For example, Bugha recently rose to prominence after winning the Fortnite World Cup. Therefore, in this article, we will be taking a look at the five best Fortnite players globally in the year 2022.

The Top 5 Best Fortnite Players Globally

Here is the list of the 5 best Fortnite players globally, who you should follow to get a better understanding of the game, or even to improve your gameplay.


We have to admit that Bugha right now is one of the best Fortnite players globally. He immediately rose to fame when he won the biggest Fortnite World Cup in 2019. Bugha, who was representing the Sentinels, had completely dominated the World Cup since the Qualifiers. When he even reached the finale, he seemed to be completely untouchable throughout the whole game. There was no doubt that he was a hidden gem all throughout.

Before joining Sentinels, he was associated with the team No Clout. His fans definitely give much credit to the Sentinels, as it was after joining them that he got such recognition and got better at playing too. At the age of 16, he immediately became a millionaire after winning the 2019 World Cup. It would be quite interesting to see how well he holds his position in the upcoming tournaments and the World Cup. We do believe that Bugh might even still dominate the upcoming tournaments or even the Fortnite World Cup.


Though there is not much information about his real-life at the moment, this 100 Thieves Fortnite player is one of the best right now. He has been playing professionally since 2018 and has managed to come a long way since then. He joined 100 Thieves back in 2019, and this was when he started to get noticed. He has received numerous awards and rewards, but his 2nd place finish in the FNCS Season 8 Grand Finals was the catalyst for his rise. Since then, it has always been going uphill. Arkham has risen to quite a high place right now, and fans just want to copy his tactics, and settings so that they can play like him.

However, something that has been worrying the fans is that Arkham’s performance is not always consistent. There have been instances when he plays Solo or in Trio where his performance was not up to the mark. There were also times when he was expected to carry the team, but he could not. We believe that this will take some time to correct, so we will have to wait until the end of the year to see how far he can improve himself or if he will abandon his potion.


Rehx and Arkham came up at the same time, and they have continued to be on the top lists together for quite some time now. Playing for the same team, 100 Thieves, you could actually make out that both these players are best friends and have the best chemistry. This is something that you would require when you are playing with a team. Therefore, their gameplay together is something that the fans want to watch every time they see 100 Thieves playing.

However, Rehx does not only stand out when he is in Arkham. When Rehx is playing solo or in Duos, he has managed to show what he is capable of. It becomes quite difficult to stop him, and his gameplay is something that manages to attract attention among the people. Fans have also started to copy his style while playing their own games, and yet it seems that Rehx never gets tired of coming up with new tactics. He can be easily considered one of the best players in the NA region.


Zayt is another one of the best NA players in Fortnite, and he deserved this title. He has been playing for quite a long time and is better known with his partner, Saf. Though Saf and Zayt are mostly known to play together, Zayt is more popular for the reason that he has also gone ahead to play a lot of Duos and Solos, and has managed to earn a name for himself. He played for the NRG team, and unfortunately, there was a piece of news recently that left all his fans brokenhearted.

Once declared as NA’s best Fortnite player, Zayt has declared that he will quit playing tournaments and scrims. This came as a shock to most of the fans. They were disheartened that they would never get to see their favourite gamer play on stage again. The reason why he wants to quit the tournaments is that he finds them too stressful, and they are not fun anymore. He is happier to just stream and play the game in his own way with fewer restrictions.


Aqua is a European player who plays for LootBoy Esports. He is one of the best players in the region and dominated the Fortnite World Cup Duo in 2019. Aqua has been on the scene for quite some time. However, he had started to dominate the scene when he entered the World Cup Duo. Ever since then, Aqua has become the most sought after player in the world right now. He also managed to become a millionaire once he won the Duo.

He seems to be going strong still and keeps on winning the tournaments and leagues. He has always been together with Nyrox. They are the unbeatable partners who have managed to conquer most of the duos that they have participated in. It would be interesting to find out how much Aqua will rank in this year's Fortnite World Cup if held.
