Top 10 Fortnite Players 2018

Breaking down the best Fortnite players in the world

Who is the best? That is all anyone wants to know when it comes to video games and sports. As viewers, we are enamored by watching whomever is considered to be the greatest at a game. For basketball, it was Michael Jordan. For boxing, it was Muhammad Ali. For baseball, it was Babe Ruth. As Fortnite continues to rise in popularity, the debate between who is the best player becomes more and more heated.

1. Ninja

No one dominates more in Fortnite equal to the way Ninja does. He processes the game so quickly that he makes difficult plays look simple. According to Fortnite Leader boards Ninja is 2nd all time in wins and 1st all time in kills. He has a life time win percentage of 34%. Meaning he wins about 1 out of every 3 games he enters. If you are familiar with Battle Royale style games, then you know how insanely difficult winning that often is. Simply put, Ninja is the king of Fortnite.

2. FaZe Tfue

Tfue is relativity new to the Fortnite scene. He gained a lot of his popularity due to streaming on Twitch, where he has recorded several 30+ kill games. He never puts himself in a situation where he doesn’t have the control. That, combined with some of the best accuracy in the game, is what makes him such a great Fortnite player. His popularity is at an all time high right now as he just recently signed with the American Esports Organization FaZe Clan. With Fortnite Esports soon to be a reality, FaZe has been grabbing up a lot of top talent in the Fortnite community. No doubt they have one of the best in Tfue.

 

 

3. TSM Myth

“The Architect.” The self proclaimed nickname is alluding to his incredibly quick and precise building in the game.  Giving yourself a nickname can oftentimes come off as arrogant, however that is not the case with Myth. He is undoubtedly the best builder in the game and proves that often. He is currently in the top 20 all time in both kills and wins. He is also the captain of Team SoloMid’s Fortnite Esports team.

4. TSM Hamlinz

Everyone talks about how great Myth is at building, but they forget that his Team SoloMid teammate Hamlinz is probably the second best builder in the world. Hamlinz competes in online pro scrimmages and wins them for fun. Hamlinz is in the top 15, for kills all time and currently has one of the highest win percentages of Season 4 Fortnite.

5. FaZe Jaomock

If you haven’t realized the pattern yet, TSM and FaZe have created two of the best squads in Fortnite Esports. Jaomock has solidified his spot on the FaZe roster by one word. Consistency. It is very seldom that Jaomock enters a game and doesn’t leave with 10 kills. He is also number 12 in the current leader boards for all time kills.

 

6. TSM Daequan

Known for his incredible ability to shotgun enemies, Daequan is another strong member of the Team SoloMid Fortnite Esports team. He pioneered what players call the “Double Pump Shotgun.” He figured out how to switch between weapons fast enough to shoot faster then any other player. Daequan is easily the most aggressive player in all of Fortnite.

7. HighDistortion

HighDistortion is lower on this list but still one of the more impressive players in the world. He feels that facing solo players is too easy, so most of his games he matches up with squad teams. However he does so by himself and wins. HighDistortion is a Solo versus Squad legend. In the Fortnite leader boards he is number 2 in all time Squad Kills.

8. Nick Eh 30

Nick Eh 30 is a close 3rd for best builder in the game right behind Myth and Hamlinz. His ability to edit materials and then become an immediate threat to kill is unrivaled. He streams via Youtube everyday and pieces together some of the most impressive win streaks out of anyone currently playing.  He never plays squad matches, but look for Nick Eh 30 to be a prominent player in the Solo Fortnite Esports scene in the future.

9. FaZe Cloak

Cloak is the captain of the FaZe Fortnite Esports team. FaZe has been playing a lot of online pro scrimmages lately to prepare for the upcoming Fortnite Esports season. More times then not Cloak carries them to victory. Not only does he have some of the best accuracy out of any pro, but he is incredibly smart. He always manages to keep his entire team alive till the end of the game to ensure the best shot at winning.

10. Dakotaz

Dakotaz is another streamer that has yet to be signed to an Esports organization team. However, that in no way discounts that he undoubtedly one of the best players in all of Fortnite. Dakotaz is considered by most to be the best Fortnite sniper of all time. He only plays Fortnite for fun and usually messes around every game. That makes it even more impressive that he has a win percentage around 30%. If Dakotaz were to join the competitive scene of Fortnite he would be a force to be reckoned with.

  1. faze clock is the best because he as teaming up with another faze member and it was 2 vs 26 and they won. the other faze member died.

  2. Tfue is the most skillful player on fortnite, his game play is so much different from others. he won the 1 million tournament twice cant compare anyone to him, end of discussion.

  3. I think Daquan should be 2 or 3 He is my best and funniest Streamer I have ever seen!! Every Video he streams it’s so funny!

  4. If you ask me, Ninja should be last. I think this because he can never live with being beaten. Take this for an example, when IcyFive(Youtuber) killed Ninja, he immediately thought he was cheating and actually got IcyFive’s fortnite account banned.. Ninja can’t live with the fact that he’s not the best.

Ninja can’t live with the fact that he’s not the best. This is why I think that Ninja is not the best player, and actually should be around the 10-15 spot. This is all my opinion though.

  6. OK tfue is way better than ninja. Ninja sucks ass at Fortnite. Tfue has destroyed ninja in 3 different occasions, and killed all of ninjas team with a grey tactical shotgun, and proceeded to almost kill ninja then dying to fal damage.Tfue is by far the best.
