How to Get Free Twitch Prime Loot in Fortnite: Battle Royale - Instigator Pickaxe

Follow our guide to get the Fortnite Battle Royale Twitch Prime loot, including the Instigator Pickaxe. If you're not receiving your Fortnite Twitch Prime loot, we've got a fix for you.

Twitch has partnered with Epic Games to give Fortnite: Battle Royale players some free loot, granted that you're also an Amazon Prime member. In this guide to the free Twitch Prime loot for Fortnite Battle Roayle, we'll detail how to get your hands on the goods, including the new Instigator Pickaxe. If you can't seem to get the free Twitch Prime loot for Fortnite: Battle Royale, we've got a fix for you below, too.

How to get the Fortnite Battle Royale Twitch Prime Loot

Epic and Twitch announced a special Twitch Prime loot pack which includes some Twitch-related accessories like purple earmuffs, along with more tactical, camouflage outfit which isn't necessarily what I think of when I think Twitch. The camo outfit also comes with a similarly designed glider.

At the end of March Twitch and Epic revealed that more free gear will be added to the free Twitch Prime Fortnite pack, including a pickaxe. What's more, additional items are coming in the future too.

To redeem the Twitch Prime offerings, you need to be an Amazon Prime member as Twitch is owned by Amazon. So along with free two day shipping, you'll also have access to Twitch's expanded suite of premium tools. Simply click this link on the official Fortnite announcement page and it will ask you to either login with your Twitch Prime account (if you're a member), or start a free trial.

Once logged in to Twitch Prime you also need to link either your PSN, Xbox Live, or Epic account so as to actually receive the items. That's a pretty key step so don't forget to make sure that the account where you primarily play Fortnite is hooked up to your Twitch account.

If you’ve already claimed your Twitch Prime Pack in Fortnite and are trying to get the new items, such as the pickaxe, you don't need to do anything. When the new Fortnite pickaxe is added to the game on Thursday, March 29, it will be waiting for you. A new set of Fortnite loot is now available. You can get it with our guide to getting the Fortnite Twitch Prime loot pack 2.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Twitch Prime Loot Fix

Twitch has partnered with other games such as Overwatch and Devil May Cry to give members exclusive content, so it's up to you if you want to stick with Twitch Prime after redeeming your Fortnite rewards. If you just signed up for the 30-day free trial to get a one-off bonus prize, that's fine too. Just don't forget to cancel your subscription before the automatic renewal.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is Epic's popular entry into the battle royale genre alongside PUBG. Fortnite's community is unique in that it's actually split between two, some might say competing game modes. For more help with Fortnite, check out our Fortnite Battle Royale Guide.
