A lot of Fortnite: Battle Royale content creators were thrilled when Epic Games revealed the new Support-A-Creator event last week. But arguably the most popular Fortnite content creator in the world apparently wasn’t a part of the event right away.
As the name suggests, the Support-A-Creator event is a way for Fortnite fans to support their favorite content creators. Content creators approved by Epic can earn money when their fans spend V-Bucks, Fortnite’s in-game currency, throughout this event, which runs through Dec. 31.
And when asked about the event on stream yesterday, Ninja simply said that he didn’t have a tag at the time—and he couldn’t say why, either. But he did encourage his fans to support other content creators, such as Ben “DrLupo” Lupo and Timothy “Timthetatman” Betar.
Now, though, Ninja appears to be a part of the Support-A-Creator event. If you click the “Support a Creator” option in the bottom-right corner of the Item Shop, you’ll be given a text box where you can input the name of your favorite content creator.
It would’ve been weird for Epic not to include such a popular figure in an event for content creators, so we’re glad to see that Ninja’s fans will now be able to support him with their in-game purchase.
