Who are the highest-earning Valorant players of all time? Let’s have a look.
As the competitive landscape of Valorant esports progresses, the financial aspect is also evolving, as evidenced by the growing tournament prize pools.
According to Esports Earnings, there has been a grand total of $20,692,081 given out across 1,079 tournaments for Riot Games’ popular first-person shooter.
When you consider the highest earning player has only netted $212,571 of it, it’s clear to see the total is spread out quite nicely.
Fnatic and the former OpTic Gaming members lead the pack
Fnatic’s outstanding performance in the 2023 VCT season has propelled Jake “Boaster” Howlett, Timofey “Chronicle” Khromov, Nikita “Derke” Sirmitev, and Emir “Alfajer” Beder into the top 10. Fnatic won big when they took home the VCT LOCK//IN and Masters Tokyo trophies.
Joining them on the list are Austin “crashies” Roberts, Victor “Victor” Wong, Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker, Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen, and Pujan “FNS” Mehta — five of the most accomplished players in the North American region. They were former members of the OpTic Gaming roster that won Masters Reykjavik 2022 and had consecutive top-three finishes at Masters Copenhagen and Valorant Champions 2022.
