October is here and Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 is in full swing. That means players can now claim their October Crew benefits, or sign up to snag a great new set of cosmetics, V-Bucks, and more!
The Crew provides players with a great opportunity to get more bang for their V-Buck, and the latest addition of more benefits means that Crew Memberships are even harder to pass up.
The first crew pack was introduced at the start of 2021, with the offerings getting better and better as months go on and Epic learn more about what their fans desire.
When Is The October Fortnite Crew Pack Released?
The next Crew Pack is always available the last day of the previous month.
The October Crew dropped at 8 p.m EST on September 30, 2021.
That's 1 a.m. BST on October 1st, 2021 for those in the UK.
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 each and every month.
With a Fortnite Crew subscription, players always have access to the current Season’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.
September's Crew Pack was the first of three Midas Operatives, The Burning Wolf.
Epic has revealed that the October skin will be Chaos Origins.
The full pack includes:
- "Chaos Origins" Skin
- "Siphon Pack" Back Bling
- "Mutagen Mace" Pickaxe
- "World Dominator" Wrap
As a bonus, players who maintain an active Crew subscription for September, October, and November will receive a bonus style for each of the skins released in those months.
Along with cosmetics, a Battle Pass, and 1,000 V-Bucks, a Crew membership also offers players other bonuses.
One of these bonuses will be a new loading screen released later in the month.
In the past players have gotten extra Loading Screens, 3 months of free Spotify Premium, and even Save the World for free.
Released on October 26, 2021, as part of the Fortnite 18.30 update, Crew members will receive a new loading screen featuring Chaos Origins.
Fortnite Crew Legacy
Epic Games has finally launched the Fortnite Crew Legacy set, a Back Bling and Pickaxe that evolve the longer players remain members of the Crew.
There are six stages to the Legacy set:
