Fortnite streamer Ninja surprised many when he announced that he would be leaving Twitch to stream exclusively on Mixer. Ninja's decision to switch streaming platforms has left a huge vacancy and those who enjoy using Twitch and want to keep using their free Twitch Prime subs are looking for new Fortnite streamers to watch.
It will be difficult for Fortnite streamers on Twitch to fully fill Ninja's shoes as the streamer, who has played the game with Drake and other celebrity gamers, was one of the most popular figures on the site. However, there are several Fortnite streamers on Twitch who are just as entertaining as the streamer with the multi-colored hair.
Last week, 16 year old Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf was crowned the Fortnite world champion in solos and took home a prize fund of $3 million. Ninja tweeted his congratulations and posted a smiling photo of the two standing side by side. Days after that, Bugha also streamed with Ninja for his first "Fortnite Friday" stream since moving to Mixer.
The stream with the two high level Fortnite players had great chemistry and many of Ninja's fans became fans of Bugha that day too. The two streamers are good friends too, meaning that fans of Ninja will probably enjoy watching Bugha's streams and his personality as well.
Fortnite streamer EwOk may be one of the smaller Twitch broadcasters on this list, with just under 250,000 followers on the platform. However, the 13 year old's profile is steadily rising as she was just signed to FaZe Clan, becoming the esports organization's very first female player.
EwOk is incredibly talented and is one of the best young, Fortnite talents. She's also leading the way for professional female Fortnite players and for deaf esports players, signing the phrase "now is the time for girl gamers" in her FaZe announcement video. Watch for her skill and to support a rising star.
From a new FaZe signing to a former FaZe member. Twitch streamer and professional Fortnite player Tfue has more than six million followers and has just been in the news after he sued FaZe for limiting his financial opportunities among other things.
There's more to Tfue that legal battles, though, and people tune in to see his amazing Fortnite skills and his disrespectful kills of other players, like the one above where he and a teammate drop out of the sky to take a couple of players out. That's the sort of humor and ridiculousness that viewers can expect when they tune in.
Twitch streamer TSM_Daequan has been a member of TSM's professional Fortnite team since 2018 and has earned several world records in the game, such as most solo kills and most squad kills. Before excelling at Fortnite, Daequan was also a high level player in Destiny, Black Desert Online, and GunZ. Before that, he also won the 2012 Florida State Championship with his high school basketball team.
This is all to say that TSM_Daequan is extremely talented. That's probably why the Fortnite streamer has more than 3.5 million followers on Twitch.
Fortnite player CouRageJD's official bio is that he likes to "yell a lot in front of a camera in hopes of making people laugh" which instantly tells fans of Ninja that they can expect energetic broadcasts from this Twitch streamer too. However, that's not the only reason why Ninja fans may enjoy CouRageJD's streams.
The Twitch streamer is also friends with Ninja and has teamed up with him for streams before. In 2018, Ninja, CouRageJD, DrLupo, and BasicallyIDoWrk doing the "4 corner no kill challenge" in a YouTube video that has more than eight million views. The two streamers collaborate often, so it's a good idea to follow the two of them.
Another frequent collaborator of Ninja's is DrLupo, a Twitch streamer who has just under 3.5 million followers on the platform. DrLupo streams daily, by himself sometimes but also with other popular streamers too so you can enjoy his camaraderie in a team if that's what you enjoy.
DrLupo is also just very good at Fortnite. Last year, a clip was sent round of DrLupo winning a game of Fortnite while being swatted. That was the third time the streamer had been swatted too, which is unfortunate, but shows that this is one broadcaster who knows how to keep his cool.
TimTheTatMan is one of the best known Fortnite streamers and he beat out Ninja, Dr. Disrespect, Tfue, and Shroud at The Gamers' Choice Awards 2018 to take home the award for Fan Favorite Male Streamer/Gamer of the Year. He was also part of the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am tournament and starred in the NFL 100 commercial, as did Ninja and football players like Peyton Manning and Marshawn Lynch.
The streamer has also been in several videos and streams with Ninja and DrLupo and with Ninja and Tfue. These are all some of the biggest names in Fortnite, confirming that TimTheTatMan should be on your radar if you're a fan of Ninja.
