How Much Money Can You Make From Fortnite?

Fortnite Battle Royale is a money-making machine. From microtransaction sales of over $1B on mobile alone to massive prize pools for the esport, Fortnite is the place to make cash in gaming, on both sides of the coin.

There are several ways to make money from Fortnite, from playing the game for viewers, to going pro, and all of them can be incredibly lucrative.

Creator Codes

One of the ways gamers with a bit of notoriety make money from Fortnite is via Creator Codes. Epic Games’ Support-A-Creator program enables YouTubers and streamers to earn money from Fortnite via V-Buck purchases. When a player purchases something with V-Bucks in the Fortnite Shop, the creator will receive 5% of the value if their Creator Code is applied. Creators receive $5 per 10,000 V-Bucks.

Earn Money From Fortnite By Becoming A YouTuber OR Twitch Streamer

Twitch is a sure-fire way of earning money from Fortnite – if you’ve got the dedication. Providing your audience with either a skilful or entertaining stream (or both) will net you followers and subscribers in no time. Time and effort are also required on your part, as streaming takes a lot of commitment - you’ll be working long hours to build your audience.

Twitch streamers make money in numerous ways – via Bits, subscriptions, or third-party donations.

Fortnite streamer Chaotic once received a donation of $75,000 – so it’s worth it.

For YouTube, creating a Fortnite video (and not live-streaming) can net you around $18 per 1000 ad views (assuming you have monetised your channel and abide by YouTube law).

Play Fortnite Competitively

Fortnite is no stranger to massive esports tournaments, and the Fortnite World Cup, which takes place in summer, always carries a large prize pool with it.

The Fortnite Championship Series Invitational (or FNCS) offered a $2M prize pool in 2020, despite being online.

If you’re good enough to go pro, you could even end up like Fortnite World Cup winner Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, who took home a cool $3M.

Coach Fortnite

If you’re good enough to play, you’re good enough to teach. Coaching players in Fortnite can be very lucrative, and UK website Bidvine helps pro-Fortnite players find new mentees, offering their services as “Fortnite Buddies”.

You can expect to earn £30 an hour on Bidvine - if you have the talent.
