What is Fortnite crew?

Fortnite Crew is a monthly subscription service within Fortnite itself that offers players an assortment of in-game items and rewards.

How much does the Fortnite Crew subscription cost?

The Fortnite Crew subscription costs $11.99 / £9.99 / €11.99.

What is included in the Fortnite Crew subscription?

The Fortnite Crew Subscription offers players three unique rewards that you receive monthly:

  • Full access to the Battle Pass
  • The crew pack
  • 1,000 V-Bucks

The Crew Pack is by far the most unique item offered in the Fortnite Crew subscription. It is an exclusive outfit bundle that offers players cosmetics that cannot be bought anywhere else.

Within the Crew Pack you will receive an exclusive outfit and at least one accompanying accessory such as a glider, pickaxe or emote.

Will you lose your Fortnite Crew items if you cancel your subscription?

No, you will not lose your Fortnite Crew items if you cancel your monthly subscription.

You can keep any cosmetics you’ve won through the Crew Pack. You also keep the 1,000 V-Bucks you take out of the subscription.

In addition, you can keep the Battle Pass and all your progress on it. You will not lose access to the Battle Pass and you can continue your progress until the end of the season.

However, if you request a full refund of the Fortnite Crew subscription, you will lose access to all your Crew Pack cosmetics, Battle Pass, and the V-Bucks you earned with the subscription.

If you choose to restart your subscription, you will of course get the V-Bucks and Crew Pack outfits again.

Is the Fortnite Crew subscription worth it?

If you’re a fan of Fortnite or want to get started, the Fortnite Crew subscription is definitely worth it.

Simply from a financial standpoint, the content of the Fortnite Crew subscription is worth more than the price of admission.

For example, to get the Battle Pass you need to buy 1,000 V-Bucks for $7.99 / £6.49. The Fortnite Crew subscription comes with 1,000 V-Bucks and the Battle Pass, which costs about $16/£13.

That’s not even the Outfit pack you get, which would cost, give or take, about 2,000 V-Bucks.
