Fortnite Crew, Epic Games' monthly subscription service, appears to not be working for some users.

Epic Games announced their newest initiative, the monthly subscription service known as the Fortnite Crew, on Nov. 24, 2020. It was slated for a Dec. 2 release date with a host of unique rewards including the latest Battle Pass per season, a loot box of previously released cosmetics, and an allowance of 1,000 V-Bucks. Unfortunately, joining the Fortnite Crew hasn't been everything users had hoped. Epic has encountered several issues to date.

Here's everything you need to know to fix them.

Fortnite Crew Not Working

The two biggest problems with the Fortnite Crew in the past were the unavailability of the pre-paid monthly allowance and difficulty rejoining the service. Epic has addressed both issues via their Fortnite Status Twitter profile.

Their official statements included commitment to investigating the issue—purposely delaying the allowance for users. However, no fix has been issued, nor has the company come forward with a plan toward a solution. Instead, another problem has popped up in its place.

The profile published a tweet detailing their knowledge of what appears to be a fraud issue with the Fortnite Crew. According to the tweet, "players are receiving multiple charge attempts for Fortnite Crew in Belarus, Brazil, Russia, and Ukraine." They have promised to update their users once they get to the bottom and resolve it.

Currently, it appears subscribers—new, old, and returning—will just have to be content with waiting for the service to work out the kinks.
