The Victory Crown is a new addition in Fortnite Chapter 3 and here’s everything you need to know about it.

Spider-Man wearing a victory crown in Fortnite

Epic Games have added the Victory Crown in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including what it does and how to get it.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 has brought a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man. There are also new items like Spidey’s Web-Shooters.

Another new feature is the Victory Crown, and players who hold this item will gain some extremely useful benefits. In case you’re wondering what it does and how to get it, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Victory Crown.

What is the Victory Crown in Fortnite?

As the name implies, the Victory Crown can be worn on your head when you’re on Fortnite Island. It is a new feature that provides its wearers with some neat rewards that will make it highly sought-after.

If you’ve got the Victory Crown then you’ll receive bonus XP during the match while wearing it. If you win a game while you have it on then you’ll get an altered Victory Royale screen where a Crown is added on top of the text.

You will also get an exclusive emote that shows you the amount of Crowned Victory Royales that you earn when playing Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. So, wearing the Victory Crown definitely has its advantages.

Victory Crowns will automatically be awarded to the top few players in a game. You can get it when playing Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads, but you’ll need to play extremely well to succeed.

Once you’ve got one, you’ll start your next match wearing the Victory Crown. This is risky because it makes you a target for other players that will attempt to eliminate you and steal it for themselves.

You’ll need to fight to defend the Crown from enemies, so there is a great degree of risk associated with it. If you wish to avoid that, then you can simply drop the Victory Crown item.

Webshooters in Fortnite

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 has added a new way for players to get around with Spider-Man’s Mythic Web-Shooters, and here’s how you can get your hands on them.

There are plenty of exciting additions in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. You can progress through a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as The Foundation.

Spider-Man has also arrived in the battle royale, and you can swing around the Island by using his Mythic Web-Shooters. If you’re looking for some fun web-slinging action, then this guide has you covered.

Here’s how you can get the Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters.

Where to find Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters in Fortnite

While Spider-Man has arrived in Fortnite, Epic Games scheduled the release of his Mythic Web-Shooters for December 11 at 10 AM ET. However, some players have purchased them early from an NPC.

Here’s how you can get them:

  1. Hop into Fortnite Chapter 3
  2. Head over to Greasy Grove
  3. Talk to an NPC named Guaco
  4. Select the option to purchase the Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters
  5. Confirm the purchase

These will cost you 400 Gold Bars, so we recommend saving up that amount by completing Quests and challenges on the Island. You can also check out our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Currently, it’s not clear why the Web-Shooters are available ahead of schedule or for how long they will remain in the game. That’s why we recommend you go purchase them as soon as you can.

While it’s fun to swing around as Spider-Man, you can still use the Web-Shooters when playing with any outfit. They serve as a great way for you to get around Fortnite’s island quickly and stylishly.

Epic Games have confirmed that as Chapter 3 progresses, we’ll see the addition of more Spider-Men along with a few friends and foes in the Item Shop. So, there will be a ton of fun Spidey content for fans to enjoy.
