And I’m not just talking about being a Youtuber and making videos about Fortnite, or being Ninja and having 13 million Amazon Prime full subscribers on Twitch. No. There are other ways of getting paid just by literally playing this Fortnite, which is what we’ll be discussing in this article.

Fortnite is a massive online survival game where 100 players battle it out until there’s only one man left standing. It’s fast-paced, action-packed, and with 250 million players around the world, things never get boring.

This is how big Fortnite has blown up in the last couple of years. But what makes it so popular?

One of the major factors that has made Fortnite so successful is that it’s free to play. And Players don’t need to take cash out from their pockets to enjoy the game with their friends which makes it more and more accessible than other full shooter video games like Battlefield or Call of Duty.

It’s also for this very same reason why Fortnite’s fan base is comprised largely of kids. Another reason why Fortnite has become a league of its own is that you can play it on any type of platform, from PC and console to mobile phone and tablet.

But that’s not the only cool thing about this Fortnite. You can actually make money playing too! Perhaps the best example of this is 28-year-old streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins who earns a large whopping $500,000 a month from live streams of his gameplay alone.

Although you might not be receiving a Ninja-sized paycheck anytime soon, you too can profit off Fortnite.

Different Ways To Make Money Playing Fortnite in Nigeria

Start Streaming On Youtube

More and more people these days are ditching the traditional corporate job in favor of a full-time Youtube career. You make a couple of videos, put them up on Youtube, and watch the dollars roll in. Sounds like the perfect get-rich-quick recipe, right? Not exactly.

While being a Youtuber is a fantastic way to earn reasonable money while doing what you love, much like any startup, you need to put in work before you can turn your Youtube channel into a lucrative business.

Don’t start your Youtube channel thinking that you’ll be making money off of it. You can’t simply upload a couple of videos and hope that one of them goes viral.

Plus, Youtube doesn’t allow creators to monetize their videos until they’ve reached a certain number of views and subscribers. It will only offer ad monetization (YouTube Partners program) to active channels that offer genuine and useful content.

You must consistently upload high-quality content if you want to attract more viewers and grow your channel.

You can upload single games of you winning Fortnite which is what Ninja and Teen Food usually do to maximize their revenue. And honestly, you can just copy what they’re doing since they’re obviously succeeding.

Then, you can set up a schedule of when you should put up new videos. This establishes your channel’s reliability in delivering new content.

Aside from a constant stream of video uploads, you must also connect with your audience on a personal level. That means building a community and generating higher levels of engagement.

Once you’ve established consistency in giving your audience an enjoyable viewing experience, you’ll soon notice a steady rise in your following.

When your channel reaches 4,000 watch hours in the last 12 months and 1,000 subscribers, only then will it be reviewed to join the Youtube monetization program.

Once your channel is approved for the YouTube partner program, that’s when you’ll start making a profit whenever someone watches your uploaded videos on YouTube.

On average, a YouTube channel receives $18 per 1,000 ad views. This means that you get to take home $3 – $5 per 1000 views.

If you prefer to play Fortnite on your phone, there’s a free Youtube gaming app available for Android devices where you can stream your gameplay as well.

Youtube has also recently released a new feature to help creators monetize their stream. It’s called Super Chat, and it allows viewers to pay to pin a comment on live streams.

Start Streaming On Twitch

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to make money on Fortnite is by streaming your gameplay on platforms like Twitch. How does this work?

Twitch offers its users two ways to track what their favorite streamers are doing: through streaming and subscribing.

The money mainly comes from subscriptions. A basic subscription is $4.99 a month. Streamers generally receive half of that. This means that the bigger your fan base the bigger your game earnings. And just to prove that Ninja’s income isn’t just a one-off, Twitch streaming full-timer streamer Cody “BigFoltz” Foltz brings in a hefty six-figure income a month just from streaming too!

With over 522,000 followers on Twitch, you’ll be purchasing your first BMW in no time. Aside from subscriptions, there are other ways of turning Twitch into a money-making machine.

You can do it through:

  • Small payments called Bits,
  • Influencer marketing, or
  • By setting up donations using PayPal, Cryptocurrency, or via third-party donation services like Streamlab and Donorbox.

Twitch Bits are like mini-donations that fans can spend on their favorite streamer’s channel in the form of “Cheers”, and the streamers take home $1 for every 100 Bits.

The only downside with Bits is that it’s only available for Twitch Partners and Affiliates.

Setting up donation buttons on your channel is fairly easy as well, and the process is pretty much the same whether you’re using Bitcoin, PayPal or Streamlab.

All you have to do is copy your PayPal, Crypto wallet, or your donation page’s link address and pastes it on your channel’s “Edit Panel”, and voila, you can now start accepting donations from your viewers!

One common feature of the most successful Twitch streamers is that they’ve made gaming a full-time career, spending at least 8 hours a day glued to their computers, playing games like Fortnite.

Early in 2019, Fortnite streamer Chaotic received a record-setting, $75,000 donation on his Twitch stream. And while donations of that size are extremely rare, it’s not exactly impossible if you’re willing to put in time and effort.

Of course, newcomers and average gamers like us aren’t going to start making big bucks right away. But once you’ve built up an audience, you may be well on your way to becoming the next Ninja of Fortnite!

Winning And Betting On Fortnite Tournaments

Anyone can make money playing Fortnite by joining online tournaments, including you.
Fortnite Battle Royale is the perfect platform where skilled players have a chance to take home a lot of money just by playing.

Players from all over the world pay for their spot in the match for a chance to win the prize pool. And we’re talking big bucks here.

In fact, last year, 16-year old Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf won a staggering $3 million after winning the Fortnite World Cup in New York!

You can try your hand at third-party websites like E-Sports Hub, Tournaments and GamerzArena.

At the moment, the most popular platform to join or host your own Fortnite tournaments is Players’ Lounge. It’s the leading online tournament hosting site for video games like Fortnite Battle Royale, Apex Legends, Call of Duty and more.

Give Coaching A Try

If you get really good at Fortnite, you might be able to make money off of the less-talented.

The game has become so popular, some parents are even hiring gaming coaches for their kids with the hopes that their Fortnite skills could land them a college scholarship.

Don’t believe me?

Well, according to the National Association of Collegiate eSports, there are currently around 80 schools across the U.S. that have eSports teams, all practicing daily in preparation for league matches against other schools.

If you’re from the United Kingdom, you’ll find pro-Fortnite players on websites like Bidvine offering their services as “Fortnite buddies”. Just name your price, and you’ll have one-on-one coaching sessions with the pros.

Pros earn from $40 to as much as $140 an hour on Bidvine, but to earn a spot at the website, you must at least have 25 wins on Fortnite.

If you’re from the United States, a simple search on eBay will give you a list of several skilled players advertising victories for cash.

Normally, Fortnite coaches will guarantee players 1 hour of play and 1 win. The pros will typically share with players strategies on when and how to engage others.

Get Paid For Boosting Other Players’ Accounts

Aside from coaching, you can also help boost other players’ stats and get paid to do so.

Customers will have to give you their Fortnite log-in information so you can boost their level organically. Pro players like trialcarry_op, for example, offers clients three wins for $25 or five wins for forty bucks.

How does the Fortnite league work?

Duos play in a private lobby with up to 40 teams for a 2-hour match period, accumulating points for eliminations and individual game placement. Each match consists of up to 7 games.

Is Fortnite still cross-platform?

Fortnite still allows cross-platform play across all platforms for those already in parties or who accept an invitation to one. So, if a Nintendo Switch user is in a party with a friend on Xbox One, they can still play together. For cross-play to work, you’ll need an Epic Games account.

Is Fortnite safe for kids?

Kids are obsessed with Fortnite because it’s a fun game. That’s pretty much it. I wouldn’t say that it’s bad for them. The only problem with kids playing Fortnite without their parent’s or caretaker’s supervision is that they might play the game in excess without stopping.
