While Fortnite Battle Royale is a free to play game, there are ways for players to spend money on the game and support the developers.
One of the main options is through the Battle Pass which lets players work to unlock a wide range of cosmetic items.
The tiered reward system has proven popular to be popular with players and it follows a similar model seen in other free to play games.
All of the items available in the Battle Pass are cosmetic only and they don’t have any affect on the actual gameplay.
What is a Battle Pass?
Fortnite players can get the Battle Pass to unlock a variety of items that can be used to customise their character including skins, emotes and glider designs.
You get a number of rewards as soon as you get your Battle Pass, but you can unlock plenty more items by leveling up.
Players can do this by completing daily challenges and increasing the level of their player rank by performing well in the game.
This progress then unlocks tiers in the Battle Pass which lets players unlock more rewards.
There are over 65 items that can be obtained during a season of Battle Pass, which Epic Games says can be achieved within 75-150 hours of play.
How to get a Battle Pass
The current season 2 Battle Pass runs from 14 December – 20 February and it can currently be bought for 950 V-Bucks.
From season 3 players will be required to pay directly for the Battle Pass instead of using V-Bucks.
