Fortnite V-Bucks: How Much Do They Cost and How to Get Them?
V-Bucks are the virtual currency used in Fortnite to purchase in-game skins and cosmetic items. There is a good chance that you have heard about them in stories and news back when Fortnite was just starting to gain popularity and was targeted by many news channels.
Anyways, V-Bucks can be used in the Fortnite Item Shop to purchase many different skins and cosmetic items to customize your character. And ever so often, you can also find a bundle in the market which offers some items of the same design bundled together for a discounted price.
These cosmetic items can include different skins, back bling, pickaxes, and gliders. You may also find extras like loading screens or music packs inside of a bundle every now and then. These skins can be of different rarities which directly affect their cost. The highest rarity skins are the Legendary ones followed by the Epic, Rare and Uncommon rarities.
How To Get V-Bucks in Fortnite
There are different ways of obtaining V-Bucks in Fortnite.
Through the In-game store
The first and the most obvious way is to get them through the In-game store. This is where players can spend their money directly to purchase Fortnite V-Bucks. They are available in different size bundles where each one offers a different value for money. These are the four options available to purchase V-Bucks in Fortnite:
- 1000 V-Bucks - $7.99 (Value: 125 V-Bucks/$)
- 2800 V-Bucks - $19.99 (Value: 140 V-Bucks/$)
- 5000 V-Bucks - $31.99 (Value: 156 V-Bucks/$)
- 13,500 V-Bucks - $79.99 (Value: 168 V-Bucks/$)
As you can see, the more V-Bucks you purchase, the more value you will get for your money!
Through The Battle Pass
You can purchase the In-game Battle Pass which awards you with V-Bucks along with other cosmetic items for playing the game and completing challenges. The Battle Pass resets every season and your goal is to complete the Battle Pass and claim all the rewards from it before the season changes. Once you claim the items, they are yours to keep, forever.
The Premium Battle Pass requires a one-time investment of 950 V-Bucks to allow you to claim all the rewards. Each Battle Pass rewards you with 1500 V-Bucks which you can use to purchase the next season’s Battle Pass, and it still leaves you with a surplus of 550 V-Bucks to spend in the Item Shop every season.
If you don’t want to purchase the initial 950 V-Bucks for the Premium Battle pass, then don’t worry because the free Battle Pass also gives you 200-300 V-Bucks every season which you can save up to later purchase the Battle Pass.
Through Limited Time Offers
Sometimes you can see a limited-time offer in the Item Shop which contains skin, cosmetic items, and some V-Bucks. These offers are usually very cheap and contain around 500-600 V-Bucks which is perfect for those saving up from the Free Battle Pass.
Fortnite Crew Subscription
The Fortnite Crew is a monthly subscription-based service offered by Fortnite for $11.99/month. Subscribers of the Fortnite Crew service receive 1000 V-Bucks every month along with a new skin bundle and the Premium Battle Pass. This is great value for your money if you can afford to spend $12 on the game every month. Because not only does it give you 1000 V-Bucks, but it also gives new exclusive skins every month to keep the game fresh.
