In this article we will be covering how you can earn 20,000 Fortnite V-bucks by playing the game itself. No third party apps or “just buy it” advice here. Everything can be done within the game itself and you can finally buy that Legendary skin.

Fortnite: Battle Royale’ still one of the biggest f2p titles around and it’s managed to draw quite the profit (a very, very big understatement) thanks to its in-game Item Shop. Players who want to kit their characters out in fancy threads can purchase cosmetics with real world currency, and Epic Games constantly refreshes the coat hangers every day, so there’s always something there to entice potential buyers.

To bag your cosmetic goodies, you’ll need to exchange real world currency for Fortnite’s in-game currency, V-Bucks. With these, you’ll be able to purchase new outfits for your character, new pickaxes, gliders and the like. Oh, and it’s the only way you’ll be able to get hold of each season’s Battle Pass too.

Right now, the only way to earn V-Bucks is through tapping into your bank account and forking out real world money. It’s a case of choosing a bundle of V-Bucks which fits your budget and often, you’ll need to spend a fair amount if you want something of real value.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Thankfully there are ways of getting yourselves V-Bucks for. All while playing the game you love.

Just below we’ve broken down all of the methods for getting V-Bucks that are currently available to the playerbase.

For those of you who’ve got more time than cash at your disposal, then there are some surprisingly efficient methods for getting hold of V-Bucks without whipping out your credit card. There’s just one small drawback, though – you’ll need to buy the single-player Save The World PVE component of Fortnite. Sometimes it’s available at a drastically reduced price, but it’s a case of keeping an eye on the store to save yourself a bit of cash.

Get V-Bucks from Daily Log-Ins

This is pretty much the easiest – albeit slowest – way to get your hands on a little extra. Logging into the game each day will provide you with a small amount of the currency, and the bonus resets every day.

Just remember to fire the game up every single day and start banking those V-Bucks – it’s not the fastest route towards tricking out your character, but it all adds up over time and it remains the most dependable ongoing route towards fattening up your wallet.

Get V-Bucks from Battle Pass Challenges

Each week you’ll gain access to three Weekly Challenges. They usually involves finding specific items across the map, eliminating enemies, destroying structures and the like. It’s essentially all stuff you can accomplish simply by investing some time in the game. Complete these challenges and you’ll earn Battle Stars for your efforts. In turn, you’ll begin levelling up your Battle Pass and start climbing up the rankings. Many of the rewards you’ll earn for reaching certain tiers of the battle pass will be cosmetic (Gliders, Pickaxes etc.), but a handful of tiers grant you a 100 V-Bucks a piece.
