Before we talk about getting the best value out of your V-Buck, we should first break down the value attached to the currency itself. The smallest amount you can buy is 1,000 V-Bucks for $10, so that sets the base value of a single V-Buck around one cent, although you won’t find anything in the Fortnite store for less than 500 V-Bucks. That makes the base in-app purchase around $5. Of course, Canadians and anyone living outside the U.S. will end up paying more based on the currency exchange rate.
Here are the pricing levels for buying V-Bucks via in-app in USD:
- 1,000 V-Bucks for $9.99
- 2,500 (+300 Bonus) V-Bucks for $24.99
- 6,000 (+1,500 Bonus) V-Bucks for $59.99
- 10,000 (+3,500 Bonus) V-Bucks for $99.99
It’s worth noting that the fortnite v bucks generator you buy on a specific platform stay with that platform, so if you’ve bought 1,000 V-Bucks on Xbox One, you won’t see them in Fortnite Mobile and vice versa. However, once you’ve spent your V-Bucks on items you’ll be able to access them across all the platforms you play. Also, because Epic Games didn’t launch Fortnite on the Google Play Store, you’ll need to authorize payment through another means and can’t use any Google Play credit towards your V-Bucks purchase.
What should you buy with your V-Bucks?
To keep Fortnite free-to-play, Epic Games have implemented Battle Pass seasons. Each season sees players completing objectives to rank up through tiers and unlock in-game rewards along the way. Players are given a free Battle Pass with its own dedicated objectives and rewards, but the premium Battle Pass, available for 950 V-Bucks, lets you unlock up to 100 in-game rewards throughout the season. By comparison, the free Battle Pass for Season 5 (the current season) is just 16, and they’ve been spaced out over 62 tiers.
Epic Games says that you’ll unlock 25,000 V-Bucks worth of content with a premium Battle Pass, but in case you’re curious what that would actually look like, I’ll break it all down using Season 5 as an example.
If you were to complete all tiers of the Season 5 Battle Pass, which Epic Games says typically takes 75 to 150 hours of gameplay to complete you’d get:
