Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

Fortnite is one of the most popular battle royale video games developed by Epic Games.

Even after about 6 years of its release, the game frequently receives hotfixes, updates, and new content that helps keep players engaged. However, being popular doesn’t mean that it’s immune to various bugs and issues.

For instance, we recently covered the issues where Fortnite’s ‘Ready Up’ button was missing after a match ended or a ‘severe lag’ or ‘high ping’ issue was witnessed by many after the v24.20 update.


Now, some are experiencing issues with the ‘Crowned Victory’ counter.

Fortnite ‘Crowned Victory’ counter bugged or not working

Crowns are a limited-time item that can be found in Battle Royale matches. They provide a minor boost to the player’s health and shield, as well as make their location visible to others.

The Fortnite ‘Crowned Victory’ counter helps keep track of the number of occasions one has won a match while wearing a crown.

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), multiple gamers are facing an issue where the Crowned Victory counter is bugged or not working.


It has been alleged that the counter does not increase after winning a match while wearing a crown. And in certain scenarios, the counter decreases even after winning a match.

Notably, this issue has been affecting players across multiple platforms for the past few days. But to rub salt in the wounds, some are also witnessing a problem where they do not get a crown after winning a match.

A gamer says that they didn’t receive any crowns or experience boosts even after a successful streak in trios, winning three consecutive matches.

Another player mentions that they haven’t been able to win any crowns together with their friends for the past few days.

I got to 13 crown wins and every single crown win after that (3 or 4) just didn’t count to my number. it’s annoying because it seems like my wins are for nothing, anybody know a fix?

Hey, me and my mates just won 3 Fortnite games in a row, but we don’t get crowns or crown wins? Anybody know why?

Those affected are now requesting the developers to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Potential reason

A Redditor says that this happens when placed in the bot lobbies if you are new to the game. They also assert that you need to play a handful more games to get out.


Having said that, we will continue to monitor the issue where Crowned Victory counter is bugged or not working and update this story as soon as we come across any new information.
