Fortnite is a massive online shooter game from Epic Games. It was released in 2017 and came in three different modes. Battle Royale and Creative are offered for the Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC, while the Save the World mode is exclusive to consoles and PC.
Several years later, Fortnite already reached Chapter 3, Season 1, which introduced tons of new features, gameplay mechanics, maps, and characters.
Even weapons are new, signifying a new horizon for the game.
One of the most hyped inclusions to the new chapter is the Victory Crown. It’s an in-game item that players can obtain while they are alive.
Aside from bragging rights, the Victory Crown also provides bonus XP and several other achievements.
Today, we’ll show you how to obtain the Victory Crown in Fortnite.
Let’s get started!
Getting the Victory Crown in Fortnite
If you’ve played several matches after Chapter 3 was released, you probably noticed a few names in gold color in the kill feed. This indicates the player who wears a Victory Crown, explaining the gold name.
Victory Crowns in Fortnite are awarded to players as a trophy for finishing close or at the top of a single match.
This means that players don’t necessarily have to win, but they need to be within the top of the leaderboards. Successfully placing close to the top of a match will reward you with the Victory Crown, and your name will have a gold color on the next game.
To be specific, here are the requirements to obtain the Victory Crown for every game mode:
- Solo: at least top four
- Duos: players in the top two
- Trios: winners
- Squads: winners
Fortnite players will hold onto the Victory Crown as long as they’re alive in the game. If they die, the Crown will drop, and other players can pick it up.
How to Get the Victory Crown Emote in Fortnite
Aside from the Victory Crown and gold naming, players can also obtain an exclusive Victory Crown emote. To do this, they have to win while they are wearing the Victory Crown. Unfortunately, having the Crown makes you a target to every player making this task harder.
Nonetheless, having an exclusive reward for completing this task is undoubtedly worth it.
After all, winning a Fortnite match with everyone targeting you proves that you’re among the best recreational players out there.
This exclusive emote in Fortnite is called Crowning Achievement, and it shows the number of wins players have received while wearing the Victory Crown. This is surely a nice flex for players who get a lot of Victory Royales.
For those who want to earn bonus XP while wearing the Victory Crown, you can complete the following tasks:
- Capture a Victory Crown
- Eliminate a Crown Wearer
- Kill a Crown Wearer while wearing a Victory Crown
- Eliminate enemies while wearing a Victory Crown
- Survive a Storm Circle as a Crown Wearer
