16 Year Old ‘Bugha’ wins Fortnite World Cup $3 Million – Shockwave Play

For anyone who missed it, 16 year old American Fortnite player Kyle ‘Bugha‘ Giersdorf took home the 3 million dollar cash prize at the 2019 Fortnite World Cup.

His strong performance began as he took the first Victory Royale in game 1, and continued his dominance throughout the 6 game series.  Bugha remained in first place throughout the entire solo competition, and finished the game with a total of 59 points, nearly doubling psalm, the second place winner at 33 points.  Psalm also took home 1.8 million.

Bugha had an insane Shockwave Grenade play to finish off the last opponent and win game number 1.

Bugha continued his steady performance, placing high and gathering kills throughout every single game. His consistency was key to his success.
