If you play Fortnite a lot, you know the Item Shop is a very tempting thing. All of these different skins, back blings, and harvesting tools can be very tempting. Unfortunately, very few of us have access to infinite money, so our purchases should be carefully considered. The allure of free V-Bucks is strong, but are there ways to get them for free, or is everything a scam? The good news is that there are 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 by the following means:
- Daily Login Rewards
- Daily quests
- Storm Shield Defense Missions
- Improve your arsenal
While Save the World isn’t free, it tends to go on sale a lot, allowing you to grab it at a discount and then farm V-Bucks. It’s also great fun to play with your friends.
The best thing about Fortnite’s Battle Pass is that it is standalone. You buy it once and then rank it, getting more than enough V-Bucks to get a new one next season. The easiest way to get free V-Bucks in Fortnite is to simply play the game, complete the challenges, and rank that Battle Pass.

By attending conventions where Fortnite has a booth, you can sometimes get codes for V-Bucks, skins, or free items. It’s unusual, and you’re competing with the crowd to try and get to the Fortnite display on time, but if you’re going to a convention you should keep your eyes peeled for free stuff.
Fortnite World Cup
While that might not be on the cards for a lot of people, attending the Fortnite World Cup turned out to be a good source of V-Bucks. People who went there last year received a code for an exclusive spray, a free battle pass, and 2,000 V-Bucks.
Sometimes influencers are given codes to give giveaways, while others will spend their own money to get codes to give away to their followers and fans. Knowing who is legitimate and who is not is not always easy. Generally speaking, crooks get caught pretty quickly, and the community response means that no prominent and well-known influencer is likely to lie to their audience. Just be careful of which ones you are trying to win. Some random Twitter accounts asking for your email address to enter is normally a bad idea, but a well-known streamer or Youtuber is another story.
Remember that any giveaway that looks for personal information to enter is something you should avoid, as it is more than likely a scam.
