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.
