We're taking a look at how-to connect your Fortnite account to your Twitch account so you can earn Twitch Drops! What's a Drop? Well, these are rewards given out to people who watch Drop eligible streams. These can be various rewards depending on the game! For Fortnite, these usually are cosmetics like Sprays and Banners. These are generally associated with tournaments, and give you incentive to watch the events unfold on Twitch.
How-to Connect Your Fortnite Account to Twitch
You will need an Epic Games account and a Twitch account for this to work. Once you have that, all you need to do is go to Connect Accounts page on Epic's website.
Click the connect button and then login or accept that connection between your Epic and Twitch account! That's all you need to do to connect the accounts together.
How-to Get Fortnite Twitch Drops
These are only going on some of the time, so you won't always get something for watching a Twitch stream. However, when there's an event going on you can go to certain Twitch streams and look for the "Drops enabled! Watch for a chance to earn loot." alert that shows up on the page.
Make sure you are logged into your Twitch account or you won't receive a reward! The rewards are distributed at random, so you could be watching for a short amount of time and receive one or you might need to watch for a while. If you have no interest in what's going on with the event, you can just leave it streaming while you do something else and still possibly receive the reward!
Winter Royale 2019
The next event that you'll be able to earn Twitch Drops from is Winter Royale 2019! This is the kick off to the Fortnite Champion Series Chapter 2 - Season 1 Finals. The event starts on December 6th and will be ending on December 8th. You can watch either December 6th or 7th to earn the free Banner, and you will want to tune in again on December 8th to earn the spray.
