As per several reports, Fortnite players who purchased a discounted levels pack last season are unable to purchase the same in the latest one.

It seems the 25 Battle Pass levels pack might bebugged in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 which is inconveniencing players as they can’t buy it.

On the other hand, some Crew members have been reporting that they did not receive Battle Pass after launching the game.

Hey Fortnite, I don’t know if this is a glitch or whatever but I can’t purchase the 25 battle pass levels, it says I already own it when I haven’t bought it yet

Hey, I cant buy the 25 levels because it says Ive already bought them thru Crew Pack, but still has me at level 1 with no stars?


It is unclear what the exact cause of these issues is but reports regarding them surfaced after Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 went live.

However, affected players may not have to contend with these problems for long as Fortnite support has acknowledged them.

It seems Epic Games is aware of the aforementioned issues and is already working on fixing them. Also, Fortnite support has shared temporary workarounds for the affected players.


Those who wish to buy 25 Battle Pass levels in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 at the discounted price can do so by heading over to the Battle Pass section then manually purchasing 25 levels from the Buy levels menu.

In the mean time you can purchase 25 levels at the same discount by going into “Buy levels” menu from the Battle Pass screen

Apart from that, some affected Crew members may be able to receive Battle Pass by restarting Fortnite. Thus be sure to give these workarounds a go until Epic Games releases a proper fix for the aforementioned issues.

For some players, this can be fixed by restarting the game.

Hopefully, the game developer and publisher soon fixes both issues so that Fortnite Chapter 2 players can enjoy Season 8 without any hassle.
