Almost 70% of Fortnite Players Have Spent Money on In-Game Purchases

But more than a third are unaware that spending doesn't give them an advantage.

A recently published survey has announced that 68.8% of Fortnite players have spent money on in-game purchases. Across this 68.8%, the average spend of the players was almost $85.

The survey was carried out by LendEDU, who surveyed 1,000 total people who play Fortnite. These players typically play Fortnite between six to ten hours per week, so the average person from this 1,000 isn't the type playing the game for hours on end every day.

However it's across this total 68.8% of players that spend money within Fortnite, that the average spend was $84.76. Furthermore, 35% of the players that were spending money on Fortnite were completely unaware that spending money on the game didn't equate to an in-game advantage for them.
