Ninja Admits His Fortnite Creator Code Made $5 Million In One Month

Ninja Admits His Fortnite Creator Code Made $5 Million In One Month

When the Fortnite boom erupted, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins transcended to the king of Twitch. With his animated crown perched atop of his icy azure flicks and game-ready headband, Ninja quickly became the face of Fornite and gaming as a whole. Soon to appear on the global screens in Adidas promos alongside Serena Williams, Linoel Messi, and Pharrel Williams, Ninja's outreach was astronomical.

With such presence, Ninja's following had grown ten-fold, thanks to Fortnite.

Epic Games then rewarded players like Ninja with creator codes, allowing a portion of the in-game microtransactions to end up in the wallet of their pioneers. Ninja himself was also gifted with his very own in-game skin through the Icon Series, and fans went crazy for it.

Ninja has now revealed home much his Creator Code has earned him, in a single month,

How much did Ninja earn with his Fortnite Creator Code?

Speaking in a stream, Ninja admitted that the most his Creator Code has earned him is around $5 million, in just one month.

He said: "I think the most I ever made in a month off the Fortnite creator code was something like $5 million. I’m not joking.”

He also joked: “I actually talked s**t to someone the other day who was just roasting my League of Legends game, and I told him that I could buy his family tree.”

Epic Games give 5% of the sales to the creators when their code is used in store, meaning the developers likely racked up $100 million in that same month from microtransactions with just Ninja's code.

How much does Ninja earn?

The 5 million a month via a content creator code is just one form of income for Ninja. The streamer also burned through subscribers during the Fortnite phase, which themselves cost around $5 per sub. Blevins previously set the record (that was broken by Ludwig during his subathon) of 269,000, making him another $1.1 million a month. Sponsors will have also paid hefty fees to have Ninja represent their brands, and his merch was an additional tip of the gold-crested cap.

Nowadays, Ninja doesn't quite make as much, although last year he was able to take home a colossal $20 million cheque from Mixer, which then fell through shortly after and allowing Ninja to return to Twitch. 

According to multiple websites, Ninja's net worth is around $25 million, having also donated large sums to charity over the course of his careers.
