The Victory Crown is a Mythic item and Gameplay Mechanic in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Chapter 3: Season 1.


The Victory Crown is a unique item which does not take up a slot in the player's inventory, rather it goes into its own slot where only one can be carried. The Victory Crown will boost the player's XP for eliminations and surviving by giving them unique accolades which grant more XP. When the player obtains a Victory Royale with a Victory Crown, they will be given the Crowning Achievement emote, which displays a number. This number increases on each Victory Royale achieved with the Crown. The Logo for the Victory Royale will also be changed, becoming gold in color.

Players keep the crown between matches, and can drop it for other players to obtain. It will display a message in the Elimination Feed each time someone drops the crown or obtains the crown. The player's name will also be highlighted in an animated golden color. The player will emit a golden glow for a short time if they are in possession of a Crown. The glow can be restored if you switch to another game mode then back to Battle Royale.


The Victory Crown can be obtained in several ways:

  • Players can drop a Victory Crown, either by dropping it from their inventory, or by being eliminated. Players can then pick the crown up.
  • Victory Crowns persist throughout matches if the player achieves a Victory Royale.
  • Victory Crowns will be granted when a player gets a Victory Royale.

Unclaimed Victory Crowns will be marked on the compass and minimap for other players to see. If a Victory Crown is not claimed for a prolonged period of time, it will despawn.

  • Players can flood the Elimination Feed if they repeatedly drop and pick up a Victory Crown. This is also achieved by swapping ownership with another player.
  • Victory Crowns were originally found at various locations across the map at the beginning of Chapter 3: Season 1. This was to enable players to obtain them and increase the number of crowns in the player-base.
