Tfue Net Worth In 2020
FaZe Tfue is a popular gamer on YouTube and Twitch whose real name is Turner Tunney. He has an estimated net worth of $12 million. He is also a professional Esports Athlete playing for the FaZe Clan together with other members. He has grown in popularity thanks to his entertaining livestreams of him playing the popular game known as Fortnite. He has won numerous Fortnite competitions over the past couple of months.
Tfue’s net worth is estimated to be in the region of $4-6 million (£3.25-4.88 million). This takes into account his revenue from Twitch through subscribers and donations, YouTube revenue, sponsors, and earnings from competitive Fortnite tournaments.
During the legal battle between Tfue and FaZe Clan, it was claimed by FaZe’s lawyers that he has made over $20 million (£16.2 million) from streaming, although this was never confirmed or verified and seems to be an overestimate.
Tfue was drawn to video games at a young age. He started out with the first-person shooter ‘Halo’ created by Bungie. He would eventually get into the battle royale craze. Tfue appeared in a number of videos from his brother’s JoogSquad YouTube channel. He eventually launched his own channel in May 2014. He started off playing and streaming Call of Duty and Destiny. Tfue’s skills and growth potential led to a partnership with Twitch. Since joining Twitch, he’s played H1Z1, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale among other titles. Tfue is known for his accuracy, trick shots, and no scopes. He holds the Fortnite world record for most solo kills.
Since Fortnite’s 2017 launch, Tfue’s YouTube channel has grown to 11+ million followers and more than 1 billion views. His Twitch saw a similar uptick with 7+ million followers and 165+ million views. He’s rated among Ninja and Myth as one of the best players in the Fortnite community. Tfue was banned from Fortnite in June 2018. According to Epic, he was guilty of buying and selling accounts. He played under the account “Not Tfue” prior to the ban being lifted.
Tfue joined the eSports organization ‘FaZe Clan’ in 2018. He’s played alongside FaZe Cloak in a number of tournaments. FaZe is one of the most popular eSports organization in the world. They specialize in games like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, Fortnite, Overwatch, FIFA, and PUBG. Tfue has thousands of followers across Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms. His accounts were hacked in August 2018 but he was able to recover.
In May 2019, Tfue filed a lawsuit against FaZe Clan over what he described as an “oppressive, onerous, and one-sided” contract. According to Tfue, FaZe took as much as 80% of his generated revenue. The contract also limited him from pursuing more lucrative deals from other sources. FaZe has since responded, claiming that they’ve never collected any money from Tfue’s tournament winnings, YouTube, Twitch or social media revenue. They claimed to have only collected $60,000 through their partnership with Tfue.
FaZe Tfue’s height is around 6ft 1in and he’s a Capricorn. His net worth is estimated at $6 million. Most of his earnings come from Twitch subs/donations, YouTube ads, tournament winnings and Amazon affiliate sales. Tfue currently resides in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. He previously stayed in Los Angeles, California, with other members of FaZe clan. In addition to gaming, he’s an avid skimboarder and longboarder. He’s also completed some impressive cliff jumps over the years. Tfue is currently dating Instagram model Corinna Kopf.
