Smartest Fortnite Players – Top 3!


Given how popular Fortnite has been ever since its release, it makes sense that there are many great players out there.

However, it’s safe to say that some are just top of the top when it comes to excelling in this game which is why you’ve most likely heard of them and even watched their battles online on your favorite platforms!

Not many would disagree that these players deserve a special level of recognition for their successful approach and unique moves they’ve made in Fortnite throughout their careers.

With that being said, to celebrate their accomplishments, we’ve compiled a short list of the top 3 smartest Fortnite players!

But first, what does being among the smartest Fortnite players entail?

First, keep in mind that this ranking is not meant to evaluate them based on their intelligence as people but on their intelligence as Fortnite players.

After all, intelligence is subjective and tends to vary in meaning from person to person.

Instead, these individuals simply have clever approaches to playing the game and are known for some unique moves that have helped them reach the top.

For some extra points, it’s important to mention that achieving great results in a short period of time is especially worthy of praise.

  1. Ninja

Who hasn’t heard of Ninja? He’s such an influential player that his online moniker is pretty much synonymous with the game!

While Richard Tyler Blevins, his real name, is no longer at the top these days, he’s definitely someone who’s turned playing Fortnite into a million-dollar career and popularized the game more than anyone else all the while turning himself into a household name.

  1. MrSavage

MrSavage, real name Martin Foss Anderson, is not only a top Fortnite player but also a gaming content creator for Become Legends.

Martin was born in 2004, making him one of the youngest successful Fortnite players at only 17 years of age.

In fact, he started his road to fame at 15 when he joined NRG eSports and he’s continued to dominate Fortnite thanks to his impressive technical gaming skills.

He has 2.7 million followers on Twitch and gets averages of 240,000 views per stream and it’s no surprise as to why.

MrSavage has a rather unique play style that includes enabling high sensitivity and is often praised for the creative ways in which he avoids getting killed in Fortnite.

  1. TaySon

Another really young player, TaySon, whose real name is Tai Starčič, was born in 2004 in Slovenia.

The successful gamer currently plays for Falcon Esports but he started his career in 2019 as well.

While not as popular as some other Fortnite Players, TaySon is often praised for his tenacity and strategic thinking.

Fans of him would describe his method as having a flowchart of sorts and therefore always having a solution to any obstacle coming his way which undoubtedly makes him a really smart player.
