On this page we explain how to get more V-Bucks for free in Fortnite: Battle Royale, with a breakdown of how to earn V-Bucks from daily log-ins and quests.

As with just about every other free-to-play game on earth, Fortnite: Battle Royale pays for its ongoing development and maintenance through a virtual currency. In this case, it's a currency known as V-Bucks, and it's used to pick up fancy new cosmetic outfits, gliders and harvesting tools in the game.

At this moment in time, the only way to get your hands on a specific quantity of V-Bucks is to go into the shop and buy a bundle using your real money. That's if you have no patience and simply want to snap up the item you have your eye on without any delay.

Thankfully, if you don't mind waiting a little while to grind them out, there are a few methods for getting your hands on more V-Bucks, completely free of charge. The only snag is, you can't actually earn them by playing Battle Royale, and so you'll need to own the core game's original single-player content.

Assuming that's you, in this article we've broken down all of the methods we currently know about for getting free V-Bucks.

Free V-Bucks from Daily Log-Ins

This is perhaps the easiest way to get your hands on a little extra free cash. Logging into the game each day will provide you with a small amount of the currency, and the bonus resets every day.

Just remember to fire the game up and start banking those free V-Bucks - it's not the fastest route towards tricking out your character, but it all adds up over time.

Free V-Bucks from Daily Quests

When you log in to the core Fortnite game you'll be offered rotating missions from the Daily Quest system. Once you've completed each one, you'll get your free V-Bucks and you'll be able to spend them on items for the Battle Royale mode.

Here's the complete breakdown of each Daily Quest, with details of how to complete each one and the rewards you'll receive for doing so:

  • Daily Destroy (Arcade Machines) - Destroy 6 Arcade Machines in successful missions (often found in City zones) - 50 V-Bucks
