What are V-Bucks?
V-bucks are the in-game currency used to purchase various character customization options throughout Fortnite. These include new dances, skins, gliders, and much more.
Do V-Bucks give you any competitive advantage?
To date, no items give you any sort of competitive advantage in any of the game modes. The items earned are purely esthetic. While dazzling new skins and dances may make your friends jealous, they probably won't improve your gameplay.
Some examples of what can be found in the item shop and bought with V-bucks.
How can I get free V-Bucks?
First and foremost, fortnite's popularity has led to a lot of scammers trying to take advantage of people in search for V-Bucks. Searches for free V-bucks and V-bucks hacks will lead you to some websites attempting to steal your Fortnite account, or even worse, your credit card information. There are two ways to get truly free V-bucks directly from Fortnite, although they require an initial investment. Players who purchase the battle pass will be able to earn V-bucks each season as they progress through the battle pass tiers. Progressing through enough tiers will always allow you to earn enough V-bucks to purchase the next battle pass for the following season as well. Another method to get free V-bucks is through the lesser played Save the World mode. Save the World is the lesser known PvE mode in Fortnite. Currently, Save the World requires a one time payment to play, but epic games has talked about making this game mode free to play at some point in 2019. Once you have purchased Save the World, you can earn free V-bucks just by logging in and getting your daily login reward. Unfortunately, you will not always get free v-bucks just for logging in, but it does occur frequent enough to make it worthwhile to login daily at the minimum! Save the World has its own challenge and daily quests that give you 50 V-Bucks for completing. The Storm Shield Defense primary missions will get you a total of 100 V-Bucks when completed. The V-Bucks earned in Save the World can be spent on new stuff in the Battle Royale game mode.
