Oh goodness gracious me. Epic Games and Fortnite got people selling organs for VBucks lately. For those of you who don’t know, the super popular free-to-play Fortnite Battle Royale has entered its 4th season, bringing with it a bevy of new superhero-themed skins, dances, pickaxes and gliders. Everyday the item shop updates, and everyday something new tries to suck the money out of your bank account.
And then, of course, there’s the Battlepass itself. Offering a good amount of these items for only 950 VBucks (roughly $10), you’re going to want to have VBucks eventually if you play the game consistently every week. So how do you get them if you don’t want to sink cash into the game? Well, sorry to say; if you want them, you’re going to have to pay one way or another. But if you already have Fortnite’s PvE counterpart now called “Save The World”, you can consistently earn a number of them for just a few hours of your time. The game itself is actually pretty fun after the most recent changes, so you’re not just trading time for money. Here’s how you can earn enough to buy the Battlepass and then some in no time at all.
Even if you don’t play the game, you can sign every day in and collect rewards. Universally, these login bonuses are the same based on the time you’ve been playing. For example, if you start today, you’ll be on Day 1, but everyone playing will get 50 VBucks once they reach their 11th day. If that doesn’t sound like a lot, it adds up. Every couple weeks or so you’ll get more, from 150, to 300, all the way to 1,000 on day 336. There’s a list of all rewards available and it’s being updated as the game goes on.
Daily Quests & Missions
Everyday, Fortnite lets you earn 50 VBucks from doing Daily Quests. You can hold 3 of these quests at time, so doing them every 3 days is the best way to knock them out all at once. However, if you get one that is too difficult or you’d rather not do, you can reroll it everyday for another one, so it pays to check out your Daily Quests while collecting your login bonus. Reroll it by clicking Abandon Quest and then see if the new one is to your liking.
In addition to these, you can also complete Timed Missions on the map for 20 VBucks. Usually, you can line it up so that doing one of these missions completes your Main Quest, Daily Quests and any Challenges you might have, netting you a lot of VBucks in one sitting.
Main Storyline & Events
You can get VBucks just by following the main storyline and event quests. Every season there are new events, and following along with these gets you new seasonal gear and often VBucks. Throughout the main quest, you’ll also have challenges you can complete that earn you between 50 and 100 VBucks as you progress. Tie these in with doing your Daily Quests which give you 50 vbucks every day and you’ll be stacked in no time.
Don’t Fall For Scams!
Due to the popularity of Fortnite, many Twitter, YouTube videos, and even websites are filled with fake links to click to get Free VBucks. As of this writing, there is no way to gift or send anyone VBucks. There aren’t any codes either. The only way to get VBucks is to earn them or pay for them with money. Any contest or giveaway you see from a reputable person is just going to end up sending you money on Paypal for you to buy them yourself. With this in mind, don’t fall for obvious scams!
We hope this guide was helpful for someone who might not understand just how VBucks work or how to get them without directly paying for them. Now it’s time to go earn some for yourself and get some sweet new loot. What was the last thing in Fortnite you spent VBucks on? Let us know in the comments!
