The new Fortnite season brings more free V-Bucks that you can earn. Whether you obtain the new Battle Pass or not, you’ll be able to get the premium currency for free. However, it’s important to note that the new pass is smaller than the previous one, which makes sense considering that the season will last for only a month.

The Fortnite OG Battle Pass can be obtained by spending 950 V-Bucks. It includes many cosmetic items, from amazing skins to emotes. In addition to it, it’s possible to earn V-Bucks while leveling up. In the past, it was possible to earn 1,500 V-Bucks with the Battle Pass and 300 without it, but that’s no longer the case.

How to earn free V-Bucks in Fortnite?

Earning free V-Bucks in Fortnite is nearly impossible. The premium currency comes mostly from the in-game store, meaning that you have to spend real money to get it. Fortunately, each Fortnite season brings some free V-Bucks that can be earned by simply leveling up.

Fortnite Chapter 4 – Season 5 brings a different Battle Pass that has fewer rewards than usual. Considering that the new season will end in early December and be the shortest season of all time, this makes sense. The good news is that it still includes free V-Bucks.

More specifically, you can get 200 free V-Bucks in the new Fortnite season by leveling up and reaching levels 34 and 42. To do this, complete challenges and earn in-game accolades to earn XP. Each time you level up, you will earn Battle Stars, which you can then spend on free V-Bucks.

If you decide to upgrade your Battle Pass, you will earn even more V-Bucks. By doing this, you can get 1,000 V-Bucks in total. On top of it, you will unlock some of the amazing cosmetic items that will never return to the game once the season ends.
