Fortnite’s sensation leaves no stone unturned with its spine-chilling battles that add a whole new level of excitement. However, what truly sets it apart is the in-game wonders and ability to modify the character. Now like every other fan, you too might be aware that V-Bucks are what you need to buy to unlock the customization options. But the question is: how to get V-Bucks for free, are there any codes or a generator available? Let’s find out, without spending a dime, of course.
How to Get V-Bucks for Free in Fortnite
V-Bucks are the virtual in-game currency used within Fortnite, which are used by players to buy character skins, outfits, emotes, gliders, weapons, wraps, and battle passes, among others. Typically, you can purchase V-Bucks with real money. However, if you do not want that, you can also obtain them through in-game or promotions and events.
Here is the current pricing of V-Bucks in Fortnite, at the time of writing this article, i.e., October 2023:
- 1,000 V-Bucks for $8.99
- 2,800 V-Bucks for $22.99
- 5,000 V-Bucks for $36.99
- 13,500 V-Bucks for $89.99
However, there are a few possible ways that can help you get the in-game assets at no expenditure. Let’s go through them:
Method 1: Login Rewards
Well, even Fortnite wants its players to return to the game regularly. In order to lure the players, the game offers free V-Bucks to players when they log in and play Save the World (aks StW). Hence, this can be your consistent source of in-game rewards.
In this mode, you can complete daily missions and Storm Shield Defense missions to earn V-Bucks. Most of the time, players receive their first reward via V-Buck on the 11th day of their daily login. Many players have even earned around 1,000 V-Bucks over the course of a year’s daily login.
Method 2: Daily Quests
If you have the Save the World founder pack, you can have daily quests, on completion of which you can get rewards such as V-Bucks, X-Ray Tickets, and Gold. Players receive one Daily Quest each day where they have to finish a certain mission. Now these missions might involve killing X number of enemies with an X type of hero. When the player has completed at least 3 Daily Quests missions, he can easily earn more than 50 V-Bucks.
Note: You are allowed to replace a Daily Quest with another once a day. Here are some of its types:
- Exploration Party: 80 V-Bucks for fully exploring 3 zones in successful missions.
- Mission Specialist: 80 V-Bucks to complete 3 missions.
- Mission Veteran: 130 V-Bucks to complete 5 missions.
- Playing It Safe: 80 V-Bucks to loot a Safe in a successful mission.
- Lost Treasures: 80 V-Bucks to loot 5 Treasure Chests in successful missions.

Method 3: Timed Missions
Timed missions in Fortnite, both Save the World and Battle Royale modes grant you bonus rewards such as heroes, defenders, survivors, perk resources, and of course V-Buck. Such missions are marked with a clock icon on the map that rotates every 24 hours.
In Battle Royale, times missions can include challenges like dealing damage with a particular weapon, completing a particular task, or achieving any certain goal within the time frame.
In Save the World, the missions involve objectives like rescuing survivors, defending structures, etc.
Note: Completing the same mission again and again will not grant you any bonus rewards.
Among all the Timed Missions, only Mini-Boss missions also known as Mission Alerts can reward V-Bucks that range from 25 to 40 V-Bucks. Other missions include rewards such as evolution material and element perk resources.
Method 4: Main Questline
Main Questline in Fortnite’s Save the World mode guides players through the game’s storyline. Completing quests grants valuable in-game rewards including V-Bucks and other bonuses. Now the exact number of quests is not specified but the questline is divided into different areas, and each area has a certain amount of quests that players must complete to progress the storyline.
Currently, the Main Questline is divided into four areas:
- Stonewood‘s Questline consists of 34 quests
- Plankerton‘s Questline consists of 51 quests
- Canny Valley‘s Questline consists of 81 quests.
- Twine Peaks‘s Questline consists of 98 quests.
Each area’s questline offers Storm Shield Defense quests at every 10th quest, which rewards players with 100 V-Bucks
Method 5: Side Quests
Side Quests can be considered as another easy way to earn free V-Bucks as they are comparatively shorter and simpler than Main Quests. Additionally, there are many Side Quests in Save The World that reward players with bacon, experience, and other items but only a few reward you free V-Bucks.
Here’s a list of Side Quests that grant V-Bucks.
- Lok’s Book of Monsters rewards you with some V-Bucks.
- Lok’s Book of Monsters: Floating Freaks rewards you with 100 V-Bucks.
- 10 Storm Shield Defense rewards you 150 V-Bucks.
Can I Get 950 V-Bucks for Free?
You will receive 1,000 V-Bucks when you join the Fortnite Crew. For the other 950 V-Bucks, you will have to purchase the current Battle Royale Season’s Battle Pass before subscribing to Fortnite Crew during that Season.

Are There Any Free V-Bucks Codes in Fortnite?
As of October 2023, while writing this article, Fortnite has not officially released any free V-Bucks codes. Instead of these, users occasionally get their hands on free codes to buy the game cosmetics such as skins, outfits, and upgrade emotes.
What is a V-Bucks Generator?
V-Bucks generators are mostly websites or apps that claim to offer you free V-Bucks in the Game. All you have to do is fill in your details such as your username, platforms you play on, and how many V-Bucks you want, and then they provide you with the same.
However, nine out of ten V-Buck generators are not legit and directly associated with online scams. With your personal information, these websites can easily get access to your gaming or Gmail account which might lead to identity theft or data breach. Additionally, generating V-Bucks from a foreign website violates the game’s guidelines, and may result in suspension or permanent ban from the game.
