2020 is coming to an end and the best Fortnite players are looking forward to the new year.

The best ones when it comes to Fortnite have held their crowns throughout 2020. The year that many want to forget is the year that esports grew. Despite not being LAN tournaments, with a brief lack of any sport esports saw attention.

Fortnite was at the end of some of that scene. While many thought it would be a “dead game,” Fortnite proved otherwise. It grows and delivers high-quality competitive play for some of the best in the world.

Zayt has been on fire in 2020, especially with his partner Saf. With five overall finishes in the first place this year, it can only get better. The NRG Fortnite player has made a strong splash, but now it’s up to him to make waves going into 2021. Hopefully Fortnite has some amazing competitions in the offing.

# 4 – Benjyfishy

Benjyfishy is another NRG Fortnite player, this time from Europe. He makes a lot of top player lists because of how consistently he performs. The young player has taken Fortnite by storm and, honestly, could be seen as a veteran even at an old age. In 2020 Benjyfishy continued to rise and 2021 will not see it slow down.

# 3 – Mongraal

Mongraal is another European Fortnite player and a member of FaZe Clan. He is an aggressive player with amazing reflexes. He has been competing professionally for a long time even though he is only 16. In his most notable victory in 2020 his Trios team saw first place in the FNCS Grand Finals. If LAN competition returns, it may well take home full of first-place finishes.

# 2 – Aqua

Things have slowed in the latter part of 2020 for Aqua, but it spent the first half of the year on a dominant climb. We hope that 2021 personal competitions will return. If there’s one player who has shown he’s ready to return LAN tournaments, it’s his Aqua. He finishes 2020 as one of the brightest Fortnite players of the year.

# 1 – Bugha

There is only one Fortnite player that could top a list of the best. Bugha still plays Fortnite at the high level for which he is famous. Like the current Fortnite World Cup Solos Tournament, and only then, it will stay better until someone else proves otherwise.

2021 may just see the return of the Fortnite World Cup, even though Epic Games has said otherwise. Bugha is the best player in the world until another player is crowned as the World Cup.
