The Epic Games “Support-A-Creator” feature is one of the best things available to content creators and it’s finally expanding to cover even more purchases within Fortnite.
Whenever you’re in the Fortnite item shop looking for a new skin or glider to pick up, using a Creator Code will give your favorite streamer or YouTuber a cut of the proceeds.
This feature also expanded to games purchased on the Epic Games Store so it’s a good extra source of income for many creators.
One thing it didn’t expand to was the purchase of packs in Fortnite, such as the Dark Reflections pack that’s currently in the item shop.
Beginning as of the v10.31 update in Fortnite, it does include those packs that are purchased with real-world money. This now means that everything you can find in the Fortnite item shop can now support a streamer you like.
For a lot of people, this might not seem like a huge deal but if you’re somehow who gets a lot of traffic through your Creator Code, it’s something you’ll definitely appreciate.
If you’re a person with a code, it doesn’t hurt to have a name down there, no matter how big or small they are, since they’ll get a cut of purchase and doesn’t cost anything extra for you.

The Creator Codes were first introduced back in October 2018 and was originally supposed to be a limited-time thing. However, the response to it was so positive that Epic Games decided to keep it around for the long-term.
One of the major benefits of having a Creator Code is the ability to have it apply to things outside of just Fortnite. People who bought Borderlands 3, The Division 2, or any other game on the Epic Games Store could support a stream, which is a huge benefit.
