Fortnite brings a new exclusive reward for Fortnite Crew members: The Fortnite Crew Photonic Legacy Set!

This set contains a pickaxe to unlock. The item will continue to evolve over the months and represents your dedication as a Fortnite crew member. Each month as an active member, you unlock a new tier of the Photon Legacy Set until you reach the final, sixth tier. As your subscription progresses, you will receive a new tier on the first day of each month.

There are a total of 6 levels to unlock:

  • Stage 1: Every active Fortnite Crew subscriber immediately unlocks the Photonic Striker Pickaxe. Not already a subscriber? Players who subscribe to Fortnite Crew from Nov. 15, 2022, at 7 PM EST to May 31, 2023, at 8 PM EDT will also unlock the Pickaxe immediately!
  • Stage 2: Receive the Advanced Style of the Photonic Striker Pickaxe.
  • Stage 3: Receive the dual-wield Cyberlight Style of the Photonic Striker Pickaxe.

What happens when a Fortnite crew membership is paused?

If you decide to take a break from Fortnite Crew membership, no worries! You keep all unlocked levels. And if you decide to return to the Fortnite crew, you can pick up where you left off - provided the tiers are still available then.

How long can the Photonic Legacy levels be unlocked?

As with the Zen Legacy Set (formerly known as the Fortnite Crew Legacy Set), once you've unlocked Tier 1, there is no longer a time limit to unlocking all stages of the Photonic Legacy Set. Easily unlock the stages at your own pace! Stage 1 of the Photon Legacy Set is unlockable until June 1st, 2023 at 02:00 CEST.
