Every way to get free V-Bucks in Fortnite

Surprisingly, there are a few ways you can get free V-Bucks in Fortnite. These vary in effectiveness, with some giving you a few V-Bucks fairly quickly, while others will require a bit more effort to get more in the long-run. Here are all the ways you can get free V-Bucks in Fortnite:

  • Battle Pass
  • Providing feedback
  • Daily quests (Save the World)
  • Main quests (Save the World)
  • Side quests (Save the World)
  • Timed missions (Save the World)

If you have the Founder’s edition of the Save the World mode, you will be able to earn a lot more V-Bucks than other players. Unfortunately, this edition is extremely rare and can no longer be purchased from Epic Games.

Battle Pass

New seasons of Fortnite bring new Battle Passes, and with each Battle Pass, you can get up to 1,500 V-Bucks. This does require you to pay for the Battle Pass, but luckily, you can get 300 V-Bucks in every Battle Pass even if you don’t buy it.

Generally, it’s also worth saving up some V-Bucks to buy the full Battle Pass too. If you don’t want to spend real money, you can use the V-Bucks you got from a few free Battle Passes to buy the full version. This means you’ll be able to buy each new Battle Pass with what you earned from the last one, and have more than 500 V-Bucks profit left over!

Providing feedback

User feedback is very important to Epic Games, which is why the company is constantly looking for it while trying to improve Fortnite. Thanks to community feedback, the developers have been able to implement a whole host of changes over the years. And while anyone can provide feedback, certain players can also earn free V-Bucks for doing that.

Looks like something you’d enjoy? In order to receive free V-Bucks from Epic Games, you must fulfil the following criteria:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Live in the United States (Not required but highly recommended)
  • Have high-speed internet
  • Own a webcam

Aside from US citizens, you may apply to join the program even if you are from another country. While applying, simply choose that you’re outside of the US. However, your application may not be approved.

Get V-Bucks in a minute

Once you receive an Amazon gift card from Epic Games, you can easily turn it into free V-Bucks. To do so, head over to amazon and use your gift card to purchase Fortnite’s premium currency.

Research sessions may also require you to install a remote desktop application provided by Epic Games. However, this application is 100% safe and will only be used during the research session. After you participate in a Fortnite study, you will receive an Amazon gift card, which you can exchange for V-Bucks.

If you want to get started, please visit Epic Games’ website. During your application, you will be asked for personal information, including your name and state. If Epic approves your application, you will receive an email with instructions on how to participate in a research session and earn free V-Bucks.

Fortnite how to get free V-Bucks: A daily quest in Fortnite Save the World offering 80 V-Bucks as a reward.

Daily quests (Save the World)

The Save the World mode gets a fresh batch of daily quests every day, and these can be completed to grant anywhere from 30 to 130 V-Bucks. These typically require you to complete certain objectives in missions such as exploring a certain number of zones or looting a certain number of treasure chests.

You almost certainly won’t be able to complete all of these in one mission, so it’s going to take you a few tries to clear up your quests for the day. That being said, if you’re consistently completing all your daily quests, you can get yourself a massive number of V-Bucks in the long run.

Main quests (Save the World)

In Save the World, there are four different main questlines, one in each of the areas of Canny Valley, Plankerton, Stonewood and Twine Peaks. Not every mission will give you V-Bucks, but each questline grants a total of 1,050 V-Bucks to collect.

Different areas have different numbers of quests, so if you want some fast V-Bucks then you should focus on Stonewood as you can get all 1,050 V-Bucks in only 34 quests. In comparison, Plankerton, Canny Valley and Twine Peaks each have 51 quests, 81 quests and 98 quests respectively, so will take far longer to complete.

Side quests (Save the World)

As you progress through the main questline in each area in Save the World, you’ll unlock a selection of side quests you can do. Again, just like main quests, not all side quests will reward you with V-Bucks, but you can specifically look to take on certain ones which do.

Keep an eye out for Storm Shield Defense quests and Lok’s Book of Monsters quests. In addition, there are a few challenges that can be repeated to earn between 30 and 50 V-Bucks. For these, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the Mission Accomplished!, Hold The Door! and Toxic Treasures challenges.

In total, you can earn 2,600 V-Bucks from all of the side quests across every area in Save the World.

Timed missions

Timed missions are a different type of daily mission which is only available for 24 hours before it disappears and a new set of timed missions will become available. While there are plenty to choose from, only Mini-Boss missions provide any V-Bucks, with each one rewarding you with 25-40 V-Bucks for completing.

You can only receive V-Bucks for beating them once, so if you were thinking about doing them repeatedly to get more V-Bucks, don’t bother as you won’t receive anything beyond your initial reward.
