You've certainly been a part of the Bit Torrent world for a while, and you've certainly heard of KickAssTorrent. It is now a defunct torrent site, but its popularity can be felt by the fact that people still search for KickAss.torrent on the internet, looking for good content, and download it via their torrent clients.


Over the years, as streaming services and free options for movies and TV shows have sprung up, the piracy-fueled torrent ecosystem has begun to shrink. However, there is still a long way to go. In the meantime, many alternatives to KickAss Torrents can be found on the web.



Final report: this list of alternatives to KickAss torrent was written for the purpose of providing information. We discourage the use of torrent sites to download copyrighted content.

KickAss torrent alternatives, best sites

1. The Pirate Bay

The name that comes to our mind when we think of torrent websites is The Pirate Bay, which hardly needs any introduction. But aside from the following and the popularity of its fans, TPB can be a great alternative to KAT for those who have used the defunct site. After returning from the dead, he has returned to success and is currently running on his original domain which is known to many.


2. 1337x

Just like TorLock, the popular torrent site 1337x also features a visually appealing interface. There are many ways to find good torrents on this KAT alternative. You can simply use the search bar, explore the categories or go to the Top 100 section which lists the 100 hottest torrents at 1337x.

3. RARBG

RARBG ranks very high in terms of popularity when you consider the number of visitors it attracts on a regular basis.

4. Nyaa.si

The interface of the Kickass alternative is neat and all torrents are listed by date on the home page. There is an option to sort them by comments, date, size, seeds, colleagues, etc., for easier selection.

5. Torrentz2

An earlier version of this article featured iDope in fifth place. However, due to some problems, the website is no longer reachable. So, I decided to replace it with Torrentz2 in 2020, which is a clone and replacement of the legendary Torrentz.eu.

It's worth noting that Torrentz2 isn't just a torrent website, it's a search meta-engine that collects and displays results from dozens of other torrent sites. The search page of this KAT alternative presents the sorting options by days, filter ON / OFF for adults, and option checked / unchecked.

You will not find any ads visible on the site which could be a plus for many. You can also find dedicated pages for the most downloaded torrents and the best torrents downloaded by users.

In addition, there is a cloud of tags at the top that allows you to get an idea of ​​the most frequent searches. If you wish, you can create an account to save torrent files as favorites. So all in all, this site can be a good replacement for KickAss Torrents for the year 2020.
