How to Earn Fortnite V Bucks?

Updated on April 25, 2018

Fortnite Battle Royale might be free of charge up front, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to spend your hard-earned cash within the game itself. This currency comes in the form of Fortnite V Bucks, and in this complete guide to the micro currency, we’ll be detailing the ways that you can get Fortnite V Bucks for free, as well as detailing all the ways you can spend the currency in-game. If you need to learn how to do anything else to do in Fortnite, including learning how to master the Battle Royale version of the game, or learning how to find all the most powerful weaponry scattered around the map, head over to our Fortnite Battle Royale guides article.

Fortnite V Bucks - Can you get Free V Bucks?

While there were originally plenty of opportunities to get V Bucks for free in Fortnite Battle Royale right after the game found global success, Epic has since removed all the hacks and cheats for obtaining V Bucks for free, and cautioned anyone from hacking the game over on the Fortnite website. This doesn’t mean that people online and on social media sites like FaceBook and Twitter won’t still try to scam Fortnite players with the promise of free V Bucks, however. Epic has warned players to be extra vigilant against people offering V Bucks, and to especially stay away from websites offering players V Bucks for free. That means that the only way to earn yourself some V Bucks in Fortnite Battle Royale is to simply purchase them through either the PSN or Xbox Live storefronts, all for the following amounts:

How Much do Fortnite V Bucks Cost?

  • 1,000 V Bucks - $9.99
  • 2,500 V Bucks (+300 Bonus) - $24.99
  • 6,000 V Bucks (+1,500 Bonus) - $59.99
  • 10,000 V Bucks (+3,500 Bonus - $99.99

You can earn V Bucks within Fortnite without shelling out money directly for them, although your options for slowly accumulating the virtual currency are limited and require you buy Fortnite Save the World. Once purchased, one method is to log in daily to receive small amounts of V Bucks from the servers. Another method, again within the Save the World mode, is to repeatedly undertake daily quests, which are split up into the following four categories:

  • Daily Destroy
  • Daily Scouting
  • Hsuk Experimentation
  • Mission Specialist

You’ll also rack up V Bucks for completing challenges in the Save the World mode of Fortnite, for example saving a total of 25 survivors within missions, or completing levels within the StoneWood Storm Shield Defence section of the game. You’re not exactly going to earn V Bucks as quickly through this method as you would from buying them with your money, but it’s still an alternate method.

Fortnite Outfits and Emotes V Bucks Cost

There are a multitude of different items that you can spend your V Bucks on within Fortnite Battle Royale, all of which revolve around customizing your character to make them stand out from the crowd. Scroll over to the ‘Item Shop’ tab in the Battle Royale section of Fortnite, and you’ll find both ‘Featured’ and ‘Daily’ items, each with countdown timers on both sections.
Gray - Common When the countdown timer is up for a section, the selection of items available to purchase there with V Bucks will refresh, giving you a brand new selection. You’ll also have to note that there are multiple rarity levels for gear in the Battle Royale shop, ascending in the following order:

  • Green - Uncommon
  • Blue - Rare
  • Purple - Epic
  • Orange - Legendary
  • Gold - Mythic

You can see just a selection of the items you can purchase for your Battle Royale character just below, including custom pickaxes, gliders, skins, and emotes, all to show off in front of fellow players.
