Fortnite: How To Get The Members Only Emote For Free

Free stuff, in a sense.


No matter what you say about Epic Games, you can’t deny that they are pretty good at doling out free items to Fortnite players. The newest free item in Season 5 is a new emote by the name of Members Only, which can be used with another player. But how do you get it?

Well, you need to have been a Fortnite Crew subscriber at some point, whether that’s currently or in the past. What is Fortnite Crew, though?

Fortnite Crew is a subscription service that costs £9.99/$9.99 per month and gives players 1000 V-Bucks a month as well as an exclusive cosmetic that will never be released elsewhere, on top of a free Battle Pass. You can sign up directly to Fortnite Crew within the game itself.

You will receive the Members Only emote as an apology from Epic Games for recent issues with Fortnite Crew, if you have been signed up for Fortnite Crew or currently are. The free deal applies even if you used to be a Fortnite Crew subscriber. Any new subscribers will be eligible for the deal from now until February 15th, 2021.

If you don’t see the ability to redeem Members Only when you log in to Fortnite, you may have to wait as the promotional item can sometimes take upwards of 48 hours to appear in your account. There was a similar issue with the Throwback Axe Pickaxe, though Epic eventually fixed it.

In other Fortnite Crew news, the skin for March 2021 has not yet been revealed, though Epic has teased that it will be something to do with a fox. Here’s hoping it’s not another version of Drift.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
