Top 20 CS:GO Players: The Highest Earners

Since its release in 2012, Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) has been one of the greatest esports titles to watch. CS:GO as an esport continues to impress, and over the eight years, a total of 3 million in prize money has been awarded to players. If you've been wondering who the top CS:GO players with the highest earnings are, then we've got you covered.

Top 20 CS:GO players: Highest earnings

Keep in mind the top 20 CS:GO players in terms of earnings below is just for tournament winnings. This does not include sponsorships or salaries paid to the players by their respective organizations.

CS:GO isn't like Dota 2, as it doesn't have something like The International, which breaks prize pool records annually. To put the difference into perspective, The International 10 has a prize pool of $40 million, while the biggest CS:GO esports tournaments in terms of prize pools (WESG 2016 & 2017) only had $1.5 million each.
