How to Get Fortnite Twitch Drops

Keep a look out for opportunities to earn prizes when watching streams, as Twitch Drops might not always be operational. The "Drops enabled! Watch for a chance to earn loot." alert will appear on some Twitch streams during special events, letting you know that you can take part to win rare prizes. Be sure to stay up to date with tournaments and the new competitive ranked system, so you can have an idea when the drops are coming!

To obtain the benefits, make sure your Twitch account is signed in. Twitch Drops are given out at random, so you can receive a gift right away or it might take a while. Even if you are not actively participating in the event, you can still multitask while the broadcast is available and still have a chance to win the prize.
