Free the V-Bucks

Guide to earn free V-Bucks


Fortnite events tend to grant a lot of V-Bucks. Events have had their own separate questlines and even progression systems.

Events have introduced new heroes, weapons, traps and survivors and have granted free legendaries as well as V-Bucks when completed. During the events you will earn event specific currency to buy Event Llamas with. Heroes, schematics and other items are this way earned for free without the need of V-Bucks. Normal V-Buck bought Llamas reward you with the current event’s currency. New Collection Book sections have appeared for the new items which serves as a nice boost towards your Collection Book V-Buck Rewards.
