How to Get Free V-Bucks in Fortnite

Don’t get scammed.


If you play a lot of Fortnite, then you know that the Item Shop is a very tempting thing. All those different Skins, Back Blings, and Harvesting Tools can be very tempting. Unfortunately, very few of us have access to infinite money, so our purchases need to be carefully considered. The lure of free V-Bucks is strong, but are there actually ways you can get them for free, or is everything a scam? The good news is that there are some ways to get free V-Bucks in Fortnite.

Save the World

Save the World, the other part of Fortnite, is actually loaded with free V-Bucks. You can get them through the following avenues:

  • Daily log on rewards
  • Daily quests
  • Storm shield defense missions
  • Upgrading your armory

While Save the World isn’t free, it does tend to go on sale a lot, allowing you to pick it up at a discount and then farm V-Bucks. It’s also pretty fun when you play it with your friends.

Battle Pass

The best thing about Fortnite’s Battle Pass is that it is self-sustaining. You buy it once, then you rank it up, netting more than enough V-Bucks to get a new one next season. The easiest way to get free V-Bucks in Fortnite is just by playing the game, finishing up challenges, and ranking up that Battle Pass.

By attending conventions where Fortnite has a stand you can sometimes get codes for free V-Bucks, skins, or items. It’s not common, and you are competing with the crowd to try to get to the Fortnite display in time, but if you are going to a convention, you should keep your eyes peeled for free stuff.

The Fortnite World Cup

While it might not be on the cards for a lot of people, attending the Fortnite World Cup has proven to be a good source of V-Bucks. People who went last year got a code for an exclusive spray, a free battle pass, and 2000 V-Bucks.


Sometimes influencers do get codes to do giveaways, while others will spend their own money to get codes to giveaway to their followers and fans. Knowing who is legitimate and who isn’t is not always easy. Generally speaking, scammers get caught out pretty quickly, and community backlash means no large and well-known influencers will risk lying to their audience. Just be careful about which ones you try to win. Some random accounts on Twitter asking for your email address to enter is normally a bad idea, but a well-known streamer or Youtuber is a different story.

Remember, any giveaway that is looking for personal information in order to enter is something you should avoid, as it is more than likely a scam.
