V-Bucks are an Fortnite currency. They are used for purchasing items from the in-game Vindertech Store, or to purchase cosmetic items and the Premium Battle Pass in Battle Royale. Of course, you can also purchase Fortnite items directly in U4gm, which saves time and enables you to use items quickly.
Why even have an honorable mentions? The truth is if you observe the 4 methods listed, those are repeatable and sustainable. In other words, you don’t run out of them ever… unless of course Epic Games make changes to those systems. Below are the 2 other ways to gain v-Bucks but they are exhaustive and will not remain permanent options
I mean this is pretty straightforward. You obtain 100 v-Bucks for each Stormshield Defense you knock out up to 9 per zone and 36 in total. Where did the last 4 go? Thankfully u/izzlort reminded me in the comments that the last defense in each zone gives you 150 v-Bucks each so that will be 600 v-Bucks. No maff is required to figure out that is a maximum of 4200 v-Bucks in total. That said, how fast you can obtain these is reliant on how far you can progress your quest-line in the game. In fact, a lot of people hardly even complete them all to obtain the full 4200 v-Bucks
Like the above, this is exhaustive in nature as well. I ran through my spreadsheet, where I once again have the collection book information thanks to u/nordrasir, and found that you get at most 1500 vBucks from it That’s really sad to be honest. If you are curious, they are found in batches of 500 at levels
Clearly, this isn’t a good mean of obtaining v-Bucks at all but I would say it’s easy enough for most people to get to level 26 and pick up the “free” 1000 v-Bucks
These are essentially quests that are unlocked as you play the game. There are a total of 5 challenges in the game but only 3 of them give vBuck rewards. They are
- Mission Accomplished : 50 vBucks (Complete missions)
- Hold the Door! : 50 vBucks (Complete SSDs)
- Toxic Treasures : 30 vBucks (Destroy mimics)
Since each of them can be completed up to 20 times, the total amount of v-Bucks you can earn adds up to *2600. Of course these are exhaustive which is why they land a spot in the honorable mentions.
