How Does it Work?
Fortnite Crew is a monthly subscription service that offers players 1000 V-Buck, a Skin, and at least one other cosmetic item every month.
With a Fortnite Crew subscription, players always have access to the current Season'sThat's Battle Pass.
If players own the Battle Pass and then decide to sign up for the Fortnite Crew service, the V-Bucks used to purchase the Battle Pass will be refunded.
If a player ends their subscription service with Fortnite Crew, they still get to keep the Battle Pass and any Crew Skins they already have from the service.
December saw the introduction of the Cube Assassin set of cosmetics, a great way to end Chapter 2, and the year in general. January rings in a new year for the Fortnite Crew, and with it comes Snow Stealth Slone and the following:
- Snow Stealth Hardcase Back Bling
- Sleet Spike Pickaxe
- Snow Stealth Wrap
Along with cosmetics, a Battle Pass, and 1,000 V-Bucks, a Crew membership also offers players other bonuses.
In the past, players have gotten extra Loading Screens, three months of free Spotify Premium, and even Save the World for free.
