There are plenty of esports games across consoles and on mobile, but PC still rules the roost when it comes to competitive online games. In fact, you can even play online games for money right from home. But where should you start? Here are some of the best PC esports games you can compete in for money.
Best PC Esports Games
1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Counter-Strike has been around for almost two decades and it’s still as big as ever. CS:GO has more tournaments than any other esport, but you don’t have to be an established pro to compete. Whether you play 1v1s on FACEIT or compete with your team, there are many ways to make money with CS:GO.
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Black Ops 4 has quickly become one of the biggest CoD games ever. It’s great fun to take on the single player campaign or play Zombies, but you can also compete. Platforms like GamerzArena and Toornament already have paid BO4 tournaments that you can enter for free.
In just over a year, Fortnite has become one of the biggest games in the world. It’s also one of the best esports games. Sites like Toornament and Players Lounge allow you to take part in plenty of Fortnite contests. Whether you prefer 1v1, 2v2, or a full squad battle, there’s something for you.
Fortnite may be the biggest battle royale game, but PUBG is hot on its heels. If you prefer more realistic graphics and less building PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the best bet for you. Sites like Toornament also offer PUBG competitions.
5. League of Legends
If you prefer MOBAs, League of Legends is a solid choice. It’s free to play and you can compete in cash tournaments on sites like XYGaming. The skill ceiling is pretty high and there’s a lot to learn, but anyone with skills in LoL can go a long way.
