Fortnite Creator Code is a program that allows Fortnite content creators to earn 5% of profits from in-game purchases. This works by players putting in unique codes will they purchase items from the game.

“I think the most I’ve ever made in a month off the Creator Code was like five mil, I’m not joking. It was funny, man. I actually talked sh** to someone the other day in a stream who was roasting my League of Legends gameplay, and I told him that I could buy his family tree. It was hilarious.”

After so many years, and so many competitions Fortnite is still going strong. And this is just an example of the game’s strong and committed fans. Half of the battle royale’s steady player base is due to their constant updates with events and changes. Additionally, the cross-over skins from all parts of pop culture media. Hence it is not too shocking that someone like Ninja made $5 million in a month just from his Fortnite Creator Code.

Not the first time we heard Ninja cashing in big. In fact, just a few months back, we heard Ninja getting paid $50 million to join Mixer. Although Microsoft’s streaming platform couldn’t keep up with the competition and eventually shut down. I don’t think Ninja cared as he got his full payment anyways.
