The Fortnite Crew membership is offering weekly bonuses to active subscribers, and here is how to claim those items.

To sweeten Epic Game’s monthly subscription service, players are being offered a weekly Fortnite Crew bonus during the month of May.

Epic Games announced the Fortnite Crew membership during Chapter 2 Season 5. Players could pay $11.99 a month to receive an exclusive skin, 1,000 V-Bucks, and access to the latest Battle Pass. Over time, Epic Games has continued to partner with other services to make Fortnite Crew an even better deal.

Fortnite Crew members have been offered free Disney+ subscriptions, Spotify memberships, and even access to Fortnite’s Save The World mode. However, players discovered that they only had to subscribe every other month to unlock these bonuses. Now, Epic Games is offering weekly bonuses to ensure members stay subscribed all month long.

Claiming weekly Fortnite Crew bonuses

When the May 2021 Fortnite Crew membership was revealed, players were quick to notice that subscribers would receive weekly bonuses. While the Epic blog post didn’t specify what these bonuses were, it did tell players to check their cosmetic lockers every Tuesday.

The first weekly Fortnite Crew bonus is the Bearallel Universe loading screen. In order for players to redeem this item they have to have an active Fortnite Crew subscription. The bonus will be deposited into the player’s locker automatically the next time they log in.

If the player does not receive a notification that the loading screen has been unlocked, they will need to check their locker. If the loading screen is not found, check to see if the subscription to Fortnite Crew is still active.

The loading screen features the Cuddle Team Leader being transported to a futuristic city covered in neon lights. Some players believe that these bonuses will help tell the story that the Fortnite Crew pass has set up. Others believe that this may be hinting at another iteration of the Cuddle Team Leader coming to the game soon.

Regardless, it is a pretty sweet loading screen that only Crew members have access to. Players shouldn’t expect the weekly Fortnite Crew bonus to be any bigger than a loading screen or back bling. Even still, these are only cosmetic items that can be obtained by Fortnite Crew members.

Luckily, the folks at Fortnite.GG has an interactive map of all of the NPCs in Season 8.

  • Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
  • Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
  • Yellow Cloud: Reveal Future Storm Circle
