Our Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass page contains information on all the new additions to the Season 8 Battle Pass, including cost, new skins and other cosmetic rewards.

Season 8 has arrived and brought with it a brand new pirate theme, meaning new locations to explore and a brand new Battle Pass to get stuck into.

There are 100 tiers filled with brand new cosmetic items, progressive outfits and the like. If you’re new to Fortnite though, the Battle Pass system isn’t the easiest system to understand. It’s tied to so many other things like experience points, Battle Stars, weekly challenges and the fact you’ll be spending your hard earned cash to acquire it.

Before you go about spending those V-Bucks, it’s important you know what you’re actually purchasing. To help you out, we’ve put together all the information you need to know about Season 8’s Battle Pass, what it does and how you can start unlocking all those juicy cosmetics to stand out from the crowd.

Fortnite Season 8: Battle Pass - What’s included?

Fortnite’s Season 8 Battle Pass features over 100 exclusive rewards to unlock. As you play the game, earn EXP and level up your Battle Pass, you’ll gradually unlock these rewards. They range from gliders, pickaxes and pets to full blown progressive outfits which will upgrade as you play the game and complete unique challenges.

Speaking of challenges, you’ll also gain access to exclusive weekly challenges which will help boost your rank even faster.

Video Overview

First off, we’d recommend watching the official Season 8 Battle Pass video we’ve embedded just below:

Cost

Season 8’s Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks, which equates to around £8/$10 in real world currency.

There’s also a more expensive option called the Battle Bundle. It costs 2,800 V-Bucks and will grant you a 25 tier boost and a Season 8 skin right off the bat.

Cosmetics

Season 8 introduces new wraps, pets, skins and the like. Any rewards you do earn during this season will be yours to keep too.

Here’s a preview of what sort of stuff you’ll be able to get your mitts on in Season 8. We'll update this section with all the outfits as soon as we can get in-game.

How to level up your Season 8 Battle Pass

Here’s a quick rundown on how to level up your Battle Pass:

  • Play matches and complete weekly challenges to earn experience points.
  • The EXP you earn will level you up, and in turn, you’ll get Battle Stars.
  • Think of Battle Stars and the EXP for levelling up your Battle Pass.
  • The more Battle Stars you earn, the more you level up your Battle Pass and unlock cosmetic items.

How to earn EXP

There are a number of different ways you can earn EXP in Fortnite, but for the most part, it’s a case of playing the game. If you’re looking to maximise your earnings though, here are a few ways to do so:

  • Survive for longer in matches.
  • Secure kills.
  • Win matches.
  • Reaching certain milestones on your Battle Pass will give you an EXP bonus modifier.
