Top 10 Beat Saber Players (2023)
When it comes to VR gaming, no scene is more competitive than the Beat Saber scene.
Some of the feats that the top Beat Saber players have been able to accomplish are completely inhumane. I’ve played Beat Saber for thousands of hours and I’m still at awe at some of the things they can do.
This list showcases the top 10 Beat Saber players and their incredible accomplishments.
Who is the Best Beat Saber Player?
The “greatest of all time” Beat Saber player is ‘Taichi,’ a Japanese player who’s known for being the first person in the world to beat GHOS7 by Dankruptmemer:
During his time, Taichi won multiple tournaments such as the ‘Summer Saber Stars‘ and the ‘Cube Community’ tournament. which consisted of the best players such as Garsh, CoolingCloset, AtomicX and Bckill.
Taichi was also at the top of the leaderboards for the longest time:
Nowadays, Taichi doesn’t play competitively anymore, but due to being an OG and his dominance during his time, we rank Taichi as the GOAT (greatest of all time) Beat Saber player.
As of 2022/2023, more impressive accomplishments have been made and the players are even getting more insane. Here are the top 10 as of today:
Holding the number 1 rank in Sweden and number 10 in the world is Smallfox. While he holds high ranks on many difficult maps, the one that granted him the most PP is Psychology by Adust Rain which is mapped by Scrappy. Smallfox was a part of the Swedish team at the Beat Saber World Cup 2021, where Sweden managed to get 3rd place.
The first player from the USA on this list is none other than Bolch Gobling, a player who is known for grinding the hardest maps that the game can offer. While he does not hold the number one spot on any of the maps where he has the best performances, Bolch Gobling is consistently finishing them with FCs, which is why his PP is high enough to get him to the world’s #9 rank.
The only player from Germany on this list, and the number one player in his country, is NailikLP. If you are looking to see someone destroy maps that seem absolutely impossible, then you have to see NailikLP in action; if you can even follow what’s happening on the screen, that is.
Another player from the USA, who used to hold the #3 rank in the world at one point, is Garsh. While his scores in the past few months have not been as great as when he held his highest rank, watching Garsh play the game during his live streams is a beautiful sight for anyone passionate about Beat Saber. When it comes to other competitive achievements, if you check out his ScoreSaber profile, you will notice that among the top players, Garsh has the most badges for various placings, including 1st place for Beat Saber World Cup 2022.
The number 2 player in the UK and number 6 in the world is OlbmaPhlee, someone who has been in the Beat Saber competitive community for quite a while. Even if his play count is not nearly as high as Garsh’s, OlbmaPhlee and a couple of other players from the UK managed to get 2nd place at Beat Saber World Cup 2022, which is certainly an impressive feat.
Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Considering the low play count and the ranking on Score Saber, aqua. , who is also known as Aquaflee, is probably one of the fastest climbing players when it comes to competitive Beat Saber. Aqua was also a part of the UK’s competitive team at Beat Saber World Cup 2022.
Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
The best and only Canadian player on this list is Bizzy825, a Beat Saber legend who is constantly improving in the game. If you check out his ScoreSaber profile, you will notice that he is #1 on many maps that are in his Top Scores list. Other than that, he was a part of the Canadian team at Beat Saber World Cup 2022, which managed to get 3rd place.
Not much is known about silentgolf, as he is lately only active on his YouTube channel. However, when it comes to map rankings, his scores are good enough to put him in the #1 place in Australia and #3 in the world on ScoreSaber. Among his Top Scores, you will find maps like Another Xronixle mapped by Fnyt & Helloiamdaan, Revenge (ReeK’s “Dude, What’s A Genre?” Remix) (feat. CaptainSparklez) mapped by Ramen Noodle, and MixxioN mapped by Jabob; some truly hardcore Beat Saber maps.
The number 2 player in the USA and the world is none other than udon, a true master of the game. Just like other players on the list, udon does a fantastic job of getting FCs on some of the most difficult maps that are ranked on ScoreSaber, like MixxioN, 256*256, Xronier, Dyscontrolled Galaxy, and many others. Udon was also a member of team USA at the Beat Saber World Cup 2022.
Someone who has been in the Beat Saber competitive scene for quite a while and the number one player in both USA and the world is cerret. While other players on this list are amazing at the game, cerret is on a completely different level. Looking at his rankings, he is holding the #1 rank on most of the hardest maps that are ranked on ScoreSaber, including Usagi no Honky mapped by abcbadq, GAKKY mapped by SlimyBlob & Blitz, Discontrolled Galaxy (Apoptosis Long ver.) mapped by Soba’s, and many others. While cerret was not the sole reason team the USA won the Beat Saber World Cup 2022, his performance certainly contributed quite a bit to the team’s ranking. If you want to see the very best player, cerret is the man to watch.
Country: United States of America
Performance Points: 17.857.62
Play Count: 3464
What About Streamers Like LSToast and Bandoot?
Both Bandoot and LSToast and extremely skilled, with Bandoot reaching rank 379 at one point. Meanwhile LSToast is currently rank 359.
Those who have ever tried to climb the leaderboards know how difficult this is.
Overall, with the current landscape of Beat Saber, Cerret seems to be pretty dominant on being the number #1 Beat Saber player, but the scene is always improving and rankings are changing all the time. Expect the rankings to be different a week, or even a day from now.
