Wondering how get free V-Bucks in Fortnite? V-Bucks are Fortnite's premium in-game currency and are needed to acquire most things inside Fortnite. Typically, V-Bucks cost real money, but there are a few legitimate ways to get free V-Bucks in Fortnite.

How To Get Free V-Bucks In Fortnite: Don't Fall For Scams!

Before we dive into the few ways to earn free V-Bucks honestly, keep in mind that V-Bucks scams are prevalent in the Fortnite community. Be extremely wary and sceptical of any websites, YouTube videos, etc. that claim to offer free V-Bucks.

There are no V-Bucks generators, no free V-Bucks glitches, and V-Bucks giveaways are usually scams too unless they are from a reputable Epic Creator.

If you need to download software or enter credit card or log-in details, it's a surefire scam!

Each new season of Fortnite features a themed Battle Pass. While most of the rewards are premium and require the purchase of the Battle Pass, there are plenty of rewards inside of the Battle Pass that can be had for free.

From start to finish, you can earn up to 300 V-Bucks each season by claiming the free rewards on each page of the Battle Pass. Do this every season and the free Fortnite V-Bucks will begin to rack up.

Save the World, Fortnite's cooperative, PvE, tower defence game mode, is an excellent source of free V-Bucks. Save the World Founders, aka anyone that paid cash to access Save the World, can earn a plethora of V-Bucks just by logging in each day.

Save the World offers Daily Login Bonuses, many of which are V-Bucks. The Daily Login Bonuses range from 50 to 1,000 V-Bucks — just for opening the game mode!

Furthermore, it's possible to earn V-Bucks through Save the World gameplay. Every day you'll be assigned a Daily Quest. Depending on its difficulty, Daily Quests reward between 50 and 100 V-Bucks.

As you can see, playing Save the World can pay dividends in free V-Bucks.

How To Get Free V-Bucks In Fortnite: Refund Request

While you'll have had to already spend V-Bucks to perform this method, Refund Requests are a way to turn your old, unwanted Skins and cosmetics into Fortnite V-Bucks.

Every Fortnite player gets three Refund Tickets by default. If it's been 30 days or less since you purchased something from the Item Shop, you can use a Refund Ticket to return it and get your V-Bucks back. If you find that there's something new in the Item Shop that you really want, Refund Tickets can help get you enough V-Bucks to purchase it without the need to spend any additional money.

Every 365 days Epic Games will give you a new Refund Ticket. You can hold a maximum of three Refund Tickets at a time. 

These are the tried-and-true methods of earning free V-Bucks in Fortnite. While there's chatter of V-Bucks generators and free V-Bucks glitches online, trust that none of it is genuine. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Those able to secure a Fortnite Crew subscription will get 1,000 V-Bucks every month!
