What is a Victory Crown?
A Victory Crown is a Mythic item in Fortnite Battle Royale that is achieved by winning a game of Fortnite, carrying it over from a previous match, picking it up after eliminating a player holding a Victory Crown, or placing in a top 10 position in Battle Royale.
After achieving a Victory Crown you can find it in your inventory. You can interact with a Victory Crown just like any other item in the game.
You can remove the item from your inventory, pick it up off the ground, and when you're eliminated the Victory Crown will drop with the rest of your loot.
What Does a Victory Crown Do?
The Victory Crown does two things in the game. The first and most positive part of the Victory Crown in Fortnite is it gives you an additional XP boost in the game for doing normal activities like eliminating opponents and reaching top positions. This XP boost allows players to level through the Fortnite Battle Pass quicker than normal.

How to get the Crown Achievement Emote
The Crowning Achievement Emote is an emote that lets you show off how many Victory Royale you've won a match wearing a Victory Crown. The Crowning Achievement Emote displays a crown icon with a number above which indicated the amount of crowned Victory Royales you've gotten. Every time you get a new crowned Victory Royale the number in the emote will increase by one.
The emote only counts a crowned Victory Royale. Therefore the emote does not tally Victory Royale's without a Victory Crown equipped.
What Game Mode Can You Get a Victory Crown in Fortnite?
You can get a Victory Crown in any Fortnite Battle Royale game mode. If you're the top team squads, teams trios, win a Solos, or top two in Duos you will get a Victory Crown.
