Epic have just released a new blog post stating that both Battle Royale and Save the World players will receive compensation as a result of the downtime experienced throughout a large portion of today and yesterday. From the post:

“We messed up here. As thanks for being awesome and patient, we’re doing the following:

  • For Battle Royale players, this weekend we’ll be offering a Back Bling gift that you can pick up in the store for free.
  • For our Save the World folks, this weekend we will be offering a Troll Stash Llama in the store for free.”

Along with this reward, they will also be giving out Seasonal Gold and Battle Stars:

“Next week, we will be granting a pack of Battle Stars to our Battle Royale players and Seasonal Gold to the Save the World players. This will require brief additional downtime, so we will be including it as a part of our planned update next week.”

It looks like the Back Bling mentioned will be the ‘Rust Bucket’ which was previously datamined and can be seen in this image from the blog post:
