Among Us and Fortnite have finally crossed over with official cosmetics, and players can earn a special back bling and emote during this collaboration. Strangely, you won’t find the Among Us items in the Fortnite Item Shop. Instead, there’s a special way to buy them, just like Epic Games has done for collaborations with recent releases like Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and more. The new cosmetics aren’t very expensive thankfully, and they’ll be available for a long period of time. Here’s how to get the Among Us cosmetics in Fortnite.
How to Get Among Us Cosmetics in Fortnite
To get the Among Us items in Fortnite, you have to make an Among Us-related purchase on the Epic Games Store between June 9, 2022 and June 9, 2023. You can either buy Among Us itself, priced at $5 on the Epic Games Store, or any bundle of Among Us Stars, the cheapest of which is $2. The price doesn’t matter as long as you buy something that’s related to Among Us via the Epic Games Store.
After making your purchase, the Among Us cosmetics will be added to your Fortnite account and you will receive them the next time you log into the game. It may take some time for them to show up due to high demand, so you might have to wait a day or two to get them.
Regardless of how much you spend, you will receive the same items as everyone else. The Crewmate back bling can be customized with any color you like, and it has a special kill animation that plays whenever you get knocked down. The Distraction Dance emote is also included, which diehard fans may recognize from Henry Stickman.
It’s nice to see Epic Games introducing an official Among Us collaboration after adding the Impostors mode to the game last year without consulting Innersloth. Fortnite has also received a ton of new content recently with the launch of Chapter 3 Season 3, which introduces more crossovers like Darth Vader and Indiana Jones. You can also customize the new Snap skeleton skin by collecting Tover Tokens scattered across the map while doing new challenges like meeting Sunbird, Moon Hawk, and Rustler or planting Reality Saplings.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
