Get Paid to be a Fortnite Mentor
Some people are getting paid up to £30 an hour for mentoring new players on the game! If you know how to play and want to help newbies, you can sign up as a Fortnite buddy.
You’ll need to prove your identity and also prove you have at least 25 wins. After that, you can take bids from members who want to learn about strategies, landing spots, and get help with the game.
Become a Fortnite Streamer or YouTuber
Fortnite streamers and content creators get some serious cash. Popular Twitch streamer Ninja makes $500,000 a month from playing Fortnite.
You won’t become the next Ninja or shroud overnight, but you can start to build up a channel and take donations. As your channel gets bigger, you can become a Twitch partner, allowing you to take paid subscriptions, sell merchandise, and get a share of the ad revenue.
YouTube is similar. You can stream or post video content and over time you could be making big money from sponsorships and ads.
Play Fortnite for Money at LAN Events
You don’t have to be a pro player to play Fortnite on LAN! There are tons of small LAN parties and tournaments out there. Check online for one near you and you can compete for money.
It isn’t just small LANs either. You can sign up right now to play Fortnite at DreamHack Montreal for a $5,000 prize pool.
Don't forget to register in your favorite tournament before the event!

Bet Your Friends
Alright, so it’s not the most official method, but it’s probably the most fun. Platforms like Toornament will let you set up a custom 1v1 so you can play your friend for money.
You could also just jump right into a regular Duos match and bet your friend a tenner you get more kills than them. The upside of this is that your only competition is the one friend you have that sucks at the game. Good luck!
