Fortnite is a fantastic little romp that tasks players with fighting off hordes of Husks as they build up their Homebase and work to free the areas affected by the mysterious “storms”. In this article we’ll talk about how to get more V-Bucks in Fortnite (or Vbucks if you’d like), one of the game’s premium currencies, pointing out some of the best ways to earn these special items in the game.
How to Get More V-Bucks
It should also be noted that since this article was originally published, Epic Games have released a free-to-play game mode called Fortnite Battle Royale. Since that time we’ve updated our guide to include new details on how to get V-bucks, which has changed slightly since the game’s original release.
V-bucks are an extremely important premium currency in Fortnite, and there are several days ways to get your hands on them. Of course, since there are technically two game modes in Fortnite now, we’ll be covering how to get V-bucks in both modes below. Things work the same for the most part, however there is an additional way to earn V-bucks in the battle royale game mode, which we’ve outlined below.
The easiest way to get V-bucks in Fortnite is to simply login to the game each day. Every day that you login you’ll receive a daily reward, and each day you’ll have a chance for that daily reward to come out as V-bucks. On top of logging into the game, you can also complete daily and weekly quests which will grant you different rewards like Survivors, Heroes, Schematics, and also V-bucks. You’ll often find at least one quest a day that you can complete for V-bucks, so make sure you’re doing those. Quests can be found in both the Save the World and the Battle Royale game modes, making it easy to earn V-bucks in both versions of the game that are currently available.
Another way to earn V-bucks requires you to add your Heroes, Survivors, Schematics, and even Weapons and other things to the Collection Book. This will, however, permanently use up those Heroes and other collectibles, so keep that in mind when you do this. Doing this will grant you experience for your Collection Book, and once you’ve collected enough you will level it up and earn a reward. You’re not always guaranteed to get V-bucks, but there is a good chance that you’ll receive that as your reward.
In battle royale you can also level up your Battle Pass, which can be purchased for each season that the battle royale mode has. You will receive different things like characters, emotes, and V-bucks for reaching those goals, and you can check the actual goals themselves and the rewards that they offer at any time from the menu in battle royale.
Finally, the last way that you can earn yourself some V-bucks is to purchase them with real-life cash. This is obviously going to be the easiest method that doesn’t require any work from you, and there are a few options available for those who don’t mind dropping a little cash for all the hard work that Epic Games has put in. We’ve outlined the pricing of the V-bucks below, so check that out.
- 1000 V-Bucks - $9.99
- 2500(+300 Bonus) V-Bucks - $24.99
- 6000(+1500 Bonus) V-Bucks - $59.99
- 10000(+3500 Bonus) - $99.99
How to Spend V-Bucks
Now that you know how to get V-Bucks, let’s talk about how you spend them. Right now, there’s only one way that you can spend V-Bucks, and that is by purchasing Llamas through the in-game Loot store. There are several different Llamas you can buy, and they are always changing, so be sure to check back constantly for one you want to purchase.
You can also purchase different items from the Item Store in Fortnite Battle Royale. This item list refreshes often, giving players plenty of different items to look through and pick up for their account
You should now know everything that you need to know about V-Bucks, including how to get them, how to spend them, and even how much they cost in their different packages.
