It comes as no surprise that this service has been a tremendous hit up till now. Even though the community had contrasting opinions on this month’s Green Arrow skin, Galaxia was undoubtedly an irresistible deal.

Fortnite thanks crew members for their patience

This year began with certain players facing issues in claiming their Fortnite Crew rewards. Furthermore, unsubscribing the service from Xbox also posed its own set of problems. As a token of appreciation, Epic Games is giving out an exclusive new emote to the crew members.

Named “Thank You”, this emote lets crew members greet each other with a handshake:

This emote will be available for all past, present and new Fortnite Crew members from now until February 15, 2021. Some players have reported that they haven’t received the emote as of now; however, the blog by Epic Games states that it may take up to 48 hours for it to show up in the locker.

Is being a crew member worth it?

Players around the world had heavily scrutinized the latest Fortnite Crew pack. The Battle Pass for Chapter 2 Season 5 was already a part of the previous month’s subscription; hence, it only arrived with the Green Arrow set and a 1000 V-bucks. To worsen the situation, the Green Arrow wasn’t an original skin, but a depiction of the popular superhero from DC comics.

A lot of players that weren’t DC fans, unsubscribed the service. Apparently, they expected the developers to put in more effort and make something that truly feels exclusive. From the looks of it, Epic Games has now realized these shortcomings and is keen on amending its mistakes with the upcoming packs.
