Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world, since it's free to play, is available on every modern gaming device, and offers one of the most competitive environments both casually and in eSports. Since its launch in 2017, there have been few other games that have managed to entice global consciousness as well.
Fortnite has spawned a large number of Twitch streamers, although Twitch has moved to other platforms such as YouTube, and Twitch has remained the household name for many of the greatest names out there. Here are the top Fortnite streamers from Twitch.
Tyler Blevins, better known as Ninja, first came on the scene playing Halo 3 competitively. He was one of the first streamers to focus solely on Fortnite and has seen his popularity exponentially increase since he launched his channel in 2018. In 2018, Ninja played for Drake, Travis Scott, and JuJu Smith-Schuster, setting a new high for Twitch at the time.
Ninja left Twitch in late 2019, but quickly rejoined the company when Mixer was phased out in 2020. It's not that close, as Ninja's popularity is so closely linked to Fortnite's growth that it's easy to question whether Fortnite would be as large as it is today.
SypherPK, who was born Ali Hassan, gained a small following playing Overwatch and For Honor before rebranding his brand on Twitch. His How to Win series is one of the most viewed on Twitch. Due to his exceptional skill and talent on Fortnite, he has remained one of the best Twitch streamers.
Bugha won the Fortnite World Cup in 2019 at the age of 16 and has since expanded his following on Twitch. As gamers crave pro-level advice, Bugha draws in a large crowd on his streams.
Nicholas Amyoony decided to take a slightly different route with his Twitch brand. On top of being one of the greatest Fortnite players in the world, NickEh30 provides educational content that is designed to be more family-friendly. In an environment like Twitch that can lend itself to being toxic, it's nice for parents and guardians of younger viewers to have a channel they trust for his particular program.
Fortnite is available on mobile devices, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
