10. Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman
Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman is one of the oldest and best Fortnite streamers to make this list. As of July 2021, Dakotaz was 35 years of age, but that fact had by no means slowed down his gaming abilities.
Dakotaz has been streaming in one way or another since way back in 2012. And, despite being a variety streamer, Fortnite remains one of his consistent titles. In fact, it’s Fortnite that Dakotaz can thank for his huge explosion on Twitch.
Today, Dakotaz boasts a massive 4.6 million followers on Twitch. Of course, the vast majority of this following picked up on Dakotaz because of his remarkable Fortnite skill and entertaining streams. Furthermore, Dakotaz also has close to 3 million YouTube subscribers, further boosting that already impressive profile.
Once upon a time, DrLupo would have ranked much higher on this list. However, he’s diversified his Twitch channel in recent months, and Fortnite is just one arrow in a very broad quiver. Although, with that being said, DrLupo’s Fortnite streams pulled in huge numbers and earned him a massive following.
Since 2013, DrLupo has been an entertaining and adventurous streamer. Like Dakotaz, he’s an older player, but that doesn’t detract from his in-game skills. In fact, DrLupo proved that in earnest in 2018, when he broke a Fornite world record for vehicle trick points.
He’s associated with some of the biggest names in streaming today, and he has an enormous fanbase. As of August 2021, he boasted 4.4 million followers on Twitch – a remarkable number.
Like Sway, who is featured higher up on this list, NateHill plays under the prestigious FaZe Clan banner. He’s a massively popular streamer, and although he plays a mix of titles, he’s one of the best Fortnite players out there today.
On Twitch, NateHill regularly streams Fortnite to his 1.6 million followers. He also has over half a million subscribers on YouTube, and his following is growing from day to day. Although NateHill isn’t one of the winningest players in the world of Fortnite, he’s definitely one of the most skilled.
Bizarrely, NateHill actually found fame with music, before transitioning into gaming. Today, he’s undeniably one of the hottest talents in the esports industry, and while he’s with FaZe, he’ll remain in that spotlight.
Loserfruit is one of the best Fortnite streamers and one of the most popular female streamers overall. She hails from Australia, which makes her unique to this list, and she has a massive following.
Since 2013, Loserfruit has grown rapidly in terms of profile and presence. Today, she boasts more than two million followers on Twitch and over three million YouTube subscribers. These incredible numbers have come about owing to Loserfruit’s entertaining and popular Fortnite streams.
In July of 2021, Loserfruit was honored by Epic with an in-game skin modeled on her rather unique brand. As time goes on, she’s becoming increasingly popular, and her near-daily streams always fetch consistently high viewership numbers.
Bugha might not be the future of the game, but he’s one of the best Fortnite streamers in the world, without question. His remarkable success on Twitch and YouTube stems mostly from his incredible victory at the 2019 Fortnite World Cup, where he won the ultimate prize.
In a sweeping win, Bugha secured a massive $3,000,000 in prize money, becoming the first-ever solo world champion. As of July 2021, Epic had immortalized Bugha in Fortnite, creating an in-game skin bearing his likeness and logo.
On Twitch, Bugha has amassed around 4.5 million followers and another 4 million subscribers on YouTube. There’s no doubt he’s one of the most popular and best Fortnite streamers around today. However, as other talent rises, Bugha will have to work much harder to retain his crown.
Let’s open this list with a member of the most popular gaming organisation in the business. FaZe Sway joined the most popular brand in gaming back in 2019, and has quickly risen up the ranks. He’s definitely one of the best Fortnite streamers in the world, and he’s getting better every day.
Sway has been uploading content since 2017, but Fortnite really is his sweet spot. In June of 2021 alone, he picked up almost 80,000 new followers while playing Fortnite. As time goes on, his numbers are only climbing, and his content is genuinely quite entertaining.
As of July 2021, Sway boasted an impressive 500k followers on Twitch, and a massive 4 million subscribers on YouTube. Furthermore, the 17-year-old’s consistency and regularity in uploading helped to put him leagues ahead of the competition.
Sportskeeda rated Jelty as the fastest rising Fortnite streamer in 2021. And, when you look at his metrics, that claim becomes a hard fact. On Twitch, Jelty is one of the best Fortnite streamers without question. According to TwitchMetrics.net, Jelty has more viewer hours on Fortnite in the last 30 days (July) than any other streamer out there.
His content truly is remarkably popular, and he boasts more than two million Twitch followers. Furthermore, Jelty is well-known for his relaxed content and engagement with his viewerbase. If there’s one thing a lot of the bigger streamers miss out on, it’s actively engaging with the fans.
One of the best Fortnite streamers in the world? You bet.
What’s a top gaming list without multiple members of FaZe Clan? Mongraal is the second FaZe member to make this list, and again, it’s for very good reason. Although Mongraal is yet to win any major Fortnite events, he’s arguably one of the best players in the world. He competes alongside some of Fortnite’s top talent, and his streams are overwhelmingly popular.
As of July 2021, Mongraal was sitting pretty on 4.6million Twitch followers. And, as you might have guessed, the vast majority of those followers tune in to view Mongraal’s Fortnite streams. Fortunately, there’s plenty to be seen, as Mongraal streams Fortnite content almost every single day.
When he goes live, thousands watch him play, and when he competes, there’s always a little Twitch betting taking place.
If there’s a list of the best Fortnite streamers in the world, you can basically guess Ninja is going to make an appearance. He picks up the second-place slot owing mostly to the fact that Ninja helped make Fortnite as popular as it is. He’s streamed Fortnite since it became a real thing to even do so, and it has well and truly made his career.
At one point, Fortnite’s developers, Epic, created an exclusive Ninja skin to be used in-game. Although Ninja plays much more than just Fortnite today, it does still remain one of his most popular titles. As of July 2021, he boasted almost 17 million followers on Twitch, making him one of the most popular creators on the platform.
Ninja has also competed on the biggest Fortnite stages in the world. His skill is remarkable, but his popularity as a Fortnite streamer is even more incredible.
Clix is a competitive Fortnite player for NRG, one of the most prolific organisations in the business. He’s played alongside the likes of Bugha, who some consider to be the best Fortnite player of all time. This claim was backed up firmly in 2019, when Bugha won the 2019 Fortnite World Cup (solos).
However, while Clix is a fantastic strategist and excellent all-round player, his strength lies in streaming. As of July 2021, Clix had amassed more than 4 million Twitch followers, with a further 1.7m subscribers coming from YouTube. His Fortnite streamers are remarkably popular, and in April of 2021, he was rated as the most watched Fortnite streamer in the world.
At just 16 years of age, Clix is the youngest contender to make this list, and there’s a very bright future in store for him. His short time as a content creator has yielded incredible results, and as the old saying goes, the only way is up. If you’re interested in your Fortnite bets being successful, keep an eye on Clix.
