Need free V Bucks for cosmetics in Fortnite? Already tried a fake generator? Look no further as we will cover every legal way to get as many free V Bucks as possible.

V Bucks can be used to buy Loot Llamas in Save the World PvE. Llamas award you with heroes, defenders, survivors and schematics to craft weapons and traps. It is advisable to save your V-Bucks for Super Llamas and Legendary Troll Llamas which are pricey but grant additional items, and may even guarantee legendaries.

In Battle Royale you can use V-Bucks to purchase Seasonal Battle Passes and cosmetic items. Cosmetic items include costumes, gliders and pickaxes. Furthermore, new seasons have featured new type of cosmetics including Back Blings, Skydiving FX Trails, Loading Screens, Music, Wraps and Pets. The cost of gliders, pickaxes, costumes and emotes range from 200 to 2000 V-Bucks. Seasonal Battle Passes cost 950 V-Bucks. In addition to account banners, V-Bucks is the only resource/item currently shared between the game modes.

Like the majority of online multiplayer games, Fortnite doesn’t let you purchase items with actual currency. You need to earn V-Bucks, either through purchasing them or unlocking them, to buy skins, harvesting tools, and other cosmetics items. So how do you get free V-Bucks in Fortnite?

Epic Games doesn’t offer a lot of free ways to get V-Bucks as they want you to spend money on its free-to-play battle royale. You’ll need to spend ample time in-game if you want to save up enough to afford a 1,500 V-Buck skin ($15), let alone more than one without spending much real cash.

Here are some tips to make your time building, shooting, and gliding as monetizable as possible.

Tips and tricks for Daily Quests

Daily Destroy Quests are doable by your teammates. Informing the others at the beginng of the mission to destroy all the TVs may help you complete the Daily Destroy Quest. You will see a yellow outline on your Daily Destroy Quest objects as well as yellow exclamation mark on the minimap when you or your teammates are near them. Go to the area what is said on the description for the best results. Avoid forest and grassland areas as they only have a few objects. You can preview the object you need to destroy by choosing the Daily Quest and pressing “Replay Intro”.

Daily Discovery Quests were added in patch V.1.10. Explore the zones to find specific locations. You need to enter the location by yourself because team mate found locations do not count.

In Husk Extermination Quests you need to kill husks or damage them before slain. You will progress on your Husk Extermination Quest if your teammate finishes the husk of any type or the mist monster you have damaged. The Quest can be done on any difficulty and in any zone or even Storm Shield Defenses.

Patch V.1.11 removed A Little Van That Could, Gate Crasher (Storm Chaser) and Data Retrieval from the Daily Quest pool as well as added Daily Coins to all Daily Quest rewards.

Patch v4.3 (May 30th) added new Husk Extermination (Melee, Assault Rifle, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle, Pistol and Trap) and “Build the Radar Tower” daily quests. The patch also lowered objective counts required for specific Destroy, Discovery, and Extermination Daily Quests.

Keep in mind that all the Daily Quests can be done on any difficulty. The Battle Royale game mode has it’s own separate Daily Quests which reward no V-Bucks. For more tips and tricks see the tips page.

Daily Login streak is not lost when you miss the login from one day, you will continue from the same one the next day.


3.Timed Missions

Fortnite features Timed Missions which grant bonus rewards like evolution materials, experience, schematics, heroes, defenders, survivors, perk resources or V-Bucks. Each Timed Mission’s bonus reward can be claimed once on completion. Timed Missions are marked on the map with a clock sign and the missions rotate every 24 hours. There are a few types of Timed Missions but only Mini-Boss missions can reward V-Bucks. Mini-Boss missions are also known as Mini-Boss Mission Alerts or just Mission Alerts. You can view the current Mini-Boss Mission Alerts in Fortnite above!

V-Bucks as a Mini-Boss mission reward is pretty common and not possible as regular mission rewards. The rewards are 25-40 V-Bucks on a single mission and the missions change once every day. Completing the same mission again will not grant you the bonus reward. Other types of Timed Missions like Storm missions can only reward evolution materials as the bonus reward. Elemental Storm missions reward elemental perk resources for their respective elements. Events have also featured their own types of Timed Missions.

Unlocking new areas and Timed Missions in Fortnite

Progressing on your main questline will eventually unlock new areas with more missions to play. Each Storm Shield Defense on your questline will reveal more mission spots on that area. You begin the game from Stonewood and need to complete the questline of 34 quests to unlock Plankerton. You will gain access to Canny Valley after completing Plankerton questline. The final area you unlock is Twine Peaks. Each area is significantly harder than the last one and more quests are needed for the next area. High V-Buck rewards are more often found from harder areas. In addition to the new mission spots, you will also unlock different types of missions, materials and daily quests as you progress.

On top of the page you can see the current Mini-Boss Mission Alerts including the rewards without launching the game, fetched directly from Save the World servers every 15 minutes. No matter where the V-Buck reward mission is, there will be a lot of people completing it for the free V-Bucks.

4.Main Questline

Main Questline features Storm Shield Defense missions around every tenth quest with 100 V-Bucks and Skill Points as the reward. Beginning of the game, it’s even more frequent and you will rack up quite some just by advancing in the story. Storm Shield Defenses reward you and your teammates with Hero Experience and Mini Llamas. Asking for help in the global chat is advised and many will happily help you for the rewards and “Hold The Door!” challenge progress.

Main Questline areas in Fortnite

Main Questline is divided to 4 different areas. You will unlock the next area after completing a set amount of quests. There are 6 Storm Shield Defense quests on each area’s questline, regardless of how many quests the area has. Storm Shield Defense quests grant 100 V-Bucks, making it a total of 600 V-Bucks for completing each area’s questline. In addition, Storm Shield Defense 7, 8, 9 and 10 will appear as Side Quests when you play the game further. Storm Shield Defense 10 grants 150 V-Bucks, making it a total of 1050 V-Bucks for each area.

Stonewood‘s questline consists of 34 quests. Stonewood’s 1st, 9th, 16th, 23th, 28th and 34th quests are Storm Shield Defenses missions.

Plankerton‘s questline consists of 51 quests and therefore Storm Shield Defense missions are not as frequent as in Stonewood.

Canny Valley‘s questline consists of 81 quests and therefore Storm Shield Defense missions are not as frequent as in Stonewood or Plankerton.

Twine Peaks‘s questline consists of 98 quests and therefore Storm Shield Defense missions are not as frequent as in the previous areas.

What about Free V Bucks Generator. Does it work?

The site has a fancy Fortnite themed V Bucks generator? It might even use the same font and graphics as Fortnite. It might also show you a list of people who used it or maybe even a fake chat on the page. The scam websites may ask for your username, platform and the amount of V-Bucks you want. After you have entered your information the generator will probably show you text like connecting to server and generating V-Bucks but the “human verification” will fail.

Those all are JavaScript and made only to trick you into believing it. To trick you into trying to complete the “human verification” step that has nothing to do with human verification.

Some sites might need you to link the website with your referral link to others before you get to “generate V-Bucks” but after that you need to “verify that you are a human”. This is all just to spread the website link that will not work for anyone and get more people to fall for it.

Beware of scam “free V Bucks Generator”

All the ways of getting free V-Bucks in Fortnite are listed on this article. Beware of the scam V-Bucks hacks, cheats and generators found on the web. Those sites ask you to put in your username, maybe answer some survey questions and you’ll get as many free V-Bucks as you’d like. Those sites aren’t real and will steal your account credentials or trick you to click on possibly malicious ads (disguised as “human verification”)!

There are websites and social media groups/posts that are claiming to offer “free” V-Bucks or other in-game items. These offers may be phishing attempts or may otherwise be dangerous. We strongly encourage you to not visit these websites or social media groups/posts and to not click links claiming “free” V-Bucks or in-game items.

But it said it works

The graphics, texts, lists of users and everything there is just fake and “hard-coded” into the website and no such actions are actually made. Connecting to the database and actually adding V-Bucks to an account is not even possible. Getting access from outside of Fortnite to your account is a massive data breach, that doesn’t happen.

Viewing your account info is not possible outside of Fortnite, neither is modifying it! Game companies have procedures to detect if account’s currencies like V-Bucks amount suddenly increases. So, even though any of those would magically work (which is not possible), you would most likely get suspended because it is against the rules. Why would you even try? All these kind of sites work the same way on other games too.

Don’t make money for these scammers. Stay safe and earn free v bucks the legal way!
