How to get free V-Bucks on Fortnite
Unfortunately, there is no way for players to earn free V-Bucks in Battle Royale, but there are ways to do it if you buy the full version of the game.
Once you own the game’s original single player mode you will be able to use it to gradually earn V-Bucks that you can spend in the store on any items you want.
Logging into the game each day is one of the easiest ways for you to get V-Bucks for free, you don’t get given many but if you continue to do this over a long period of time then the in-game currency will start to accumulate.
Daily quests is another way you can earn the money in the main Fortnite game, there is a broad range of different challenges that you can complete.
The quests are split up into different sections –
- Daily Destroy
- Daily Scouting
- Husk Extermination
- Mission Specialist
There are also extra tasks alongside these including saving 25 Survivors in successful missions.
The reward for completing any of these quests can range from 50 – 100 V-Bucks.
Epic Games offers a couple of other alternative ways for players to accumulate V-Bucks for free within the main game.
One way is by completing the levels in StoneWood Storm Shield Defence, which is aimed more towards people just starting out in the game.
The other alternative is to complete the levels in Twine Peaks Storm Shield Defence, which is a harder mode for more experienced players.
These modes reward players with 100 V-Bucks and skill points when they are completed.
