Some of the best Fortnite players from around the world competed for a $250,000 prize pool at DreamHack Anaheim in California, with 100 Thieves’ Fortnite star MrSavage coming out top.
Taking place from 21-23rd February, the Fortnite competition culminated in a 100-player grand final after two stages of qualifying rounds. The final itself spanned eight matches of Fortnite, with the winning player decided by their final position on the leaderboard from points earned.
MrSavage, who was recently signed with 100 Thieves, took home the top prize of $35,000, followed by Ghost Gaming’s Bizzle and free agent player Nanolite. You can check out the standings below.

“Congratulations once again on your DreamHack Anaheim Championship.”

While a number of Fortnite tournaments have taken place over recent months, Epic Games has yet to mention any plans for another Fortnite World Cup in 2020.
Last year’s first ever Fortnite World Cup was won by Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf who quickly ascended to household name status.
