How to earn free V-Bucks in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2

The Chapter 5 Season 2 Battle Pass comes with 300 free V-Bucks that you can earn simply by playing the game and levelling up. These V-Bucks are not locked behind the paid Battle Pass, which means that you can unlock them using the Battle Stars you earn with your levels. These drops come at levels 32, 46 and 58 respectively.

A worthy investment?

If you’re someone who regularly reaches level 100 and and beyond, it might be worth buying the Battle Pass as a one-off. Once you buy it once, every time you max out your Battle Pass, you’ll earn enough V-Bucks to buy the next one, so you’ll only need to buy one with real money.

If you purchase the new pass, however, you can earn up to 1,500 V-Bucks for reaching level 100, on top of the various skin, emotes and more that you’ll get too. Considering that the Chapter 5 Season 2 Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks, not only will you get your V-Bucks back, but you’ll also make 550 extra.

If you are a Fortnite founder, you can get a lot of V-Bucks by playing Save the World, the PvE mode. Other than that, you’ll only be able to earn 300 free V-Bucks from the Battle Pass.
