Fortnite Twitch Prime Pack Gets Pickaxe - New Items Also Coming Soon

You need to axe yourself how far you're willing to go to win.

Prepare yourselves for more Twitch Prime loot, Fortnite fans. Starting this Thursday (March 29), Battle Royale players subscribed to Twitch Prime will receive the exclusive Battle Royale Instigator Pickaxe. They call it the "Instigator Pickaxe" because it's guaranteed to kindle a lot of bad feelings if you slide out of the shadows and bury it in another player's head.

If you've already claimed your Twitch Prime Pack, you can sit back and wait for results; the axe will pop up this Thursday. Otherwise, you need to make a Twitch Prime account, link it to Epic Games, and then grab your Twitch Prime pack. If you're having trouble, we have a guide to help you get your Instigator Pickaxe. Because we love you, and we want to see you succeed. More Fortnite Battle Royale loot is on the way for Twitch Prime subscribers, and we'll be sure to tell you all about that stuff, too.

The pickaxe is also a handy back-scratcher.

Fortnite continues to dominate the fledgling battle royale genre thanks to receiving big pushes from celebrities and popular streamers (sometimes at the same time; they tend to play together). If you want to get in on the fun but have no idea where to start, don't fret. We have Fortnite Battle Royale guides for beginners and veterans alike. They'll help with everything from getting started right down to offering instructions on how to take on specific tasks and quests.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
