The Fortnite competitive community contains some of the most talented esports athletes in the world. The game is prominent in several regions of the world, with each country having its own marvels.
Naturally, close competition among pros leads to heated arguments between their fans. While some claim that FNCS victories should settle the debate surrounding the ‘best Fortnite player’, others pay more attention to factors like prize money and consistency.
With that in mind, here’s why we believe that Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf is the best Fortnite player as of 2022.
A peek into Bugha’s illustrious career as a Fortnite pro
There are several factors like consistency, wins, and prize money that help in asserting that a certain player is the ‘best.’ A player who can proudly talk about his World Cup victory, FNCS wins, earnings, and consistency is none other than Bugha.
It all started with Bugha winning the World Cup in 2019. Despite competing with 99 of the most talented players in the world, he dominated the tournament and bagged 59 points. The fact that runner-up Psalm had 33 points proved that Kyle was miles ahead of everyone.
Bugha earned 3 million USD by winning the World Cup Solos. Ever since, he solidified his place as the highest earning Fortnite pro. Moreover, he won the FNCS three times with different teammates. During Chapter 2, he placed in the top 5 of the FNCS tournaments thrice.
Apart from these major tournaments, Giersdorf has won a plethora of Cash Cups that have helped him in making a fortune.
Big names in the Fortnite community have appreciated Bugha time and again, and he now boasts millions of followers from around the world.
Hence, it will not be an overstatement to call Bugha the best player in the world. The likes of Arkhram, benjyfishy, Mongraal, TaySon, Mero, EpikWhale, Zayt, and Aqua are strong contenders for the title, but Bugha’s career is unmatched.

In the online world, success is often accompanied by irrelevant criticism and hate speech. Bugha is no exception, as many called his World Cup victory a fluke and claimed that he will not be consistent. Others claimed that his career as a Fortnite pro will not last long and he will switch to Valorant soon.
