“Video games have been mainstream entertainment and social platforms; for a long time, and we know that many gamers are also current; past or future soldiers, army officers, armed group members, CEOs of companies, lawyers and political leaders.”
Love it or hate it, Fortnite has become one of the world’s most popular games with 200 million people playing the title since its launch. But what if we told you that playing the game could be more than just a hobby? What if we told you that you could get paid to play Fortnite?
In Fortnite Battle Royale, 100 players battle against each other on an island until only one man remains standing. With Fortnite being free to play, playable on PC, console, and mobile, and having a huge fanbase, it makes it an ideal game to play for profit.
Common options for getting paid to play Fortnite include; streaming, competing in tournaments, and betting on the game as an eSport.
eSports is another word for competitive gaming whereby top players compete, either as a team or individually, in contests to win big prize pools.
With Fortnite, the major eSports competition is the Fortnite World Cup which takes place in July. However, due to the global pandemic, the 2020 World Cup has been cancelled. Nevertheless, other competitions are going ahead online, such as the Fortnite Championship Series with a $2 million prize pool.
If you are extremely talented at playing Fortnite, becoming a pro gamer and entering Fortnite eSports tournaments could be for you. It requires dedication, practice, and lots of motivation, but if you are determined you could make it to the top.
