Many Fortnite players wonder how to get free V-Bucks. This is a premium in-game currency that is used to purchase cosmetic items from the Item Shop.
V-Bucks also allow Fortnite players to buy the Battle Pass, Battle Pass levels, and even some special bundles. Unfortunately, there are not many ways to obtain free V-Bucks, which means that players have to purchase them.
Epic Games allows free players to get free V-Bucks every single season. Furthermore, players who own the Founder version of Fortnite: Save the World can earn more than 10,000 free V-Bucks every year.
This guide will explain how to get free V-Bucks in Fortnite Battle Royale in Chapter 4 – Season 1.
How to get free V-Bucks
The new Fortnite chapter has brought the new Battle Pass. Battle Pass owners are able to earn some amazing skins, such as Doom Slayer and The Ageless, and unlock up to 1,500 V-Bucks.
If you do not own the Battle Pass, however, you can still earn free V-Bucks. To do this, you will have to play the game and level up.
The Chapter 4 – Season 1 Battle Pass grants up to 1,500 V-Bucks for Battle Pass owners and up to 300 V-Bucks for free players.
Unfortunately, this amount is not significant and only basic cosmetic items can be purchased for it.
However, some players have saved their free V-Bucks from the previous Fortnite seasons so they can purchase the current Battle Pass.
If you are not able to pay for the Battle Pass, this is the strategy you can use. You need to save free V-Bucks to purchase the Battle Pass, then you can earn 1,500 V-Bucks from it and have enough for every other Battle Pass.
Earning free V-Bucks through Fortnite: Save the World
If you own the Founder’s edition of Fortnite: Save the World, you can earn more than 10,000 V-Bucks every single year. These V-Bucks come from weekly bonuses and you don’t even have to play the game to get them.
Furthermore, each daily quest rewards from 30 to 100 V-Bucks in the video game, and there are V-Bucks missions that can be completed.
Each week, you will receive from 150 to 800 free V-Bucks just for logging in to Fortnite: Save the World. This adds up to more than 10,000 V-Bucks per year, which is amazing.
When you just start playing the game, there are many missions that reward V-Bucks. Furthermore, each Storm Shield Defense mission grants free V-Bucks.
On December 26, there is one mission that rewards players with 30 free V-Bucks. In the last 30 days, Fortnite Founders were able to earn 380 V-Bucks from these missions.
If you complete all the missions, daily quests, and pick up the login rewards, you can earn more than 30,000 V-Bucks from Fortnite: Save the World every single year.
However, please keep in mind that this only works for the Founder’s version of the video game. This version of the game can no longer be purchased, but if you own the game, please log in to it and check if it’s the Founder’s version.
