Aydan Dethrones HusKerrs As Warzone’s Highest Earner

Aydan HusKerrs

Aydan has officially dethroned HusKerrs as Call of Duty: Warzone’s highest earner by surpassing $140,000 earned in the free-to-play battle royale video game.

Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas became the first Warzone player to crack $100K in earnings in Oct. last year after a slew of big finishes in Vikkstar’s Warzone Showdown and Twitch Rivals. With 103K, he grabbed the first spot; leaving everyone, including Aydan behind. Aydan took second place with $64K.

Three other players had earned $60K at the time, with the difference between HusKerrs and Aydan being double the difference between Aydan and the 10th-highest earner. However, in the five months since then, the earning race came down to just the top two.

After spending months dominating every meta and changing duos, Aydan has narrowed the gap and officially overtaken what appears to be an invincible lead. Winning the $12K Mina Mendes 2v2 tournament with Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, Warzone’s new top earner has been crowned.

Aydan and Rated took the second spot on the day, and it became obvious that the top earner position would change hands. In his stream, the clearly surprised former Fortnite pro opened up about how unlikely he once thought that would be.

“Dude, I can’t believe we’re No. 1 earned. Holy s**t. Man,I didn’t think I’d ever be here to be honest, because HusKerrs was above me by f**king a lot.”

After dominating tournaments with Zach ‘Zlaner’ Lane and Charlie ‘MuTeX’ Saouma, Aydan found an even-more cohesive partner in Rated. The former Call of Duty League pro’s experience, CoD intelligence, and composure strikes a perfect balance with Aydan’s cracked demon energy.

Since the start of Warzone Season 2 and Black Ops Cold War, the new duo has won nearly every single 2v2 tournament, a format that ensures equal lobbies. With Aydan taking the top spot, HusKerrs has moved down to the second, and Rated is inching toward grabbing the second-place spot.

Envy’s $30K Jack Link’s Warzone Invitational is slated to take place on Mar. 16, and the earnings list is expected to shake up at a weekly pace. Watch this space for the latest esports news.
