Call of Duty has a massive competitive fanbase, and a large pool of professional esports teams and players who compete in worldwide tournaments to earn big bucks. Prizes can range from hundreds of dollars to six figures, and some pro players have made tidy profits from competing.

Well-known teams in the Call of Duty League, along with their star players, rake in the cash when the CDL comes around, but fans of the esport may be wondering which CoD player has made the most money – we have the answer.

There are several notable names to include here, from teams such as Dallas Empire, Chicago Huntsmen, OpTic Chicago, and more. While Call of Duty players seem to have a shelf life (with most retiring by their late twenties), a ton of money can be made during their professional careers.
