Amazon bought Twitch the highly popular streaming platform back in 2014. Soon after the purchase Amazon introduced Twitch Prime, a Twitch subscription available to individuals who have an Amazon account, an active Amazon Prime subscription, and a Twitch account.
With this new subscription came Twitch Prime loot. Premium membership of Twitch comes with an endless series of benefits including exclusive in-game loot, free games, and even chat privileges.
In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at how to acquire a twitch prime membership, what rewards Twitch Prime loot has to offer, and how you can claim those rewards for yourself.
What is Twitch Prime Loot?
To put it simply, Twitch Prime loot is an endless series of benefits offered by Amazon to Twitch users who also have Amazon Prime memberships. These benefits include exclusive in-game loot, free games, digital downloadable content, and even a subscription to one of Twitch’s partnered or affiliate channels.
Twitch has even partnered up with several game publishers like Bethesda Softworks and Electronic Arts Games who give away their own Twitch Prime loot in the form of free games (added every week) and exclusive in-game rewards like new characters, skins, weapons, and even XP boosts.
If you’re looking for a specific example, let’s talk about Apex Legends. Users of Twitch Prime (now renamed to Prime Gaming) who play the popular battle royale game can get access to a variety of cosmetic loot drops (refreshed every month) which include gun skins, character skins, and banners.
For more details on all the types of loot, you can acquire through a Twitch Prime or Prime Gaming membership, check out the next section down below.
Types of Twitch Prime Loot
These are the types of Twitch Prime Loot from these you can get maximum benefits and rewards.
In-game content is by far the most refreshed category of Twitch Prime loot, with Amazon dropping multiple new upgrades or loot packs for various games every week. Each loot pack offers a different set of unlocks from the other according to the game they’re offered for.
For example, for MMORPGs like New World and RuneScape, these loot packs usually contain new mounts, in-game survival components, and random supply chests.
While for first-person shooters like Call of Duty and Overwatch, these packs usually contain new gun skins, banners, character skins, and XP boosts.
Lastly, new gun skins, XP boosts and character skins are also available for battle royale games like League of Legends and Fortnite.
If there’s anything that could make you buy a Twitch Prime subscription it’s free games. Especially considering how Amazon drops in new free games every week as Twitch Prime loot.
What’s more, is that these games include both new and popular retro titles of various genres. Classic RPGs, fast-paced first-person shooters, and even the silliest battle royale games are all up for grabs if you’re a Twitch user and Amazon Prime subscriber.
Some recognized titles available now as Twitch Prime loot include Sengoku, Metal Slug 3, and OverTop.
Exclusive Twitch Benefits
Apart from gaming benefits, Twitch Prime members are also supplied with plenty of perks that they can use on Twitch itself.
Twitch Prime loot allows you one subscription to a Twitch streamer that’s part of their partner program. That subscription allows you access to that channel’s specific subscription perks like exclusive chat emoticons.
Twitch Prime members are also given access to exclusive emoticons and gifs they can use in any chat as well as a badge that shows that they’re a Prime Gaming subscriber.
How to Claim Twitch Prime Loot?
Knowing what rewards you’ll get as a Twitch Prime or Prime Gaming subscriber is all well and good, but you still need to know how to claim them.
You need three things to get access to Twitch Prime loot. An Amazon account, an Amazon Prime subscription, and a Twitch account. Thankfully, the process itself is quite simple:
- First of all, you have to head over to Prime Gaming’s official website.
- The option to sign in to your Amazon account should be available at the top right corner of the site.
- Once you’ve signed in to your Amazon account click on your name (again it should be on the top right corner) and click on manage Twitch account.
- From here you’ll just have to sign in to your Twitch account and once the screen refreshes you should be able to claim any of the rewards you want by clicking the claim reward button on any of the loot packs.
The seemingly endless perks Twitch Prime loot provides should be enough to entice anyone to get a Twitch Prime or a Prime Gaming subscription.
However, you would do well to remember that all of the loot packs available for Twitch Prime subscribers are only up for grabs for a limited amount of time and get replaced by new packs as soon as that time is up.
New free games are added every week while in-game content is refreshed every month or so. So, just make sure that you quickly snatch up any new rewards that show up in these packs before they get replaced.
Other than that, we hope our guide was enough to provide you with the basic information you need about Twitch Prime loot. If you’re looking for more information on the subject we’d suggest heading over to Prime Gaming’s official website.
