V-Bucks: what they are and what they are for

Before explaining to you how to get free V-Bucks on Nintendo Switch, I want to make sure that I have clarified all your doubts regarding the ways of earning and using this virtual currency within the world of Fortnite.

THE V-Bucks, as already mentioned, are virtual coins that are used for the purchase of costumes and emotes in the Shop Objects Fortnite: the former are skins that change the aesthetic appearance of the character or weapons, while the emote they are used to communicate in the game, through the expression of emotions or with dances.

Among the most common uses of V-Bucks there is also the purchase of the Battle Pass (950 V-Bucks) and del Battle Bundle (2,800 V-Bucks) which I will tell you about in detail in the next chapter: it is, in fact, an upgrade for your account, which allows you to level it up faster, in order to reach rewards faster than otherwise would be obtained after several hours of play.

Having clarified this, before moving on to the practical part of this tutorial, I must inform you that, at the time of writing this guide, the V-Bucks you can get them on Fortnite, for Nintendo Switch in mode only PVP free call Battle royal.

How to get free V-Bucks on Fortnite Nintendo Switch

Having made the necessary premises on the use of V-Bucks, it’s time to talk more specifically about how to get V-Bucks for free by playing Fortnite for Switch.

In this regard, as previously mentioned, the only method to obtain this game coin in Fortnite is to play the mode Battle royal, which involves PVP battles with other players in last man standing mode: by passing the levels, it is possible to obtain the V-Bucks as a reward from the seasonal tiers.

For example, at the time of writing this tutorial, you can get 100 V-Bucks playing for free and getting to level 11. Others 100 V-Bucks we obtain, instead, al level 34.

The rewards that can be obtained for free on Fortnite through the completion of the levels may however vary with the passing of the seasons: you can see them in real time in the menu Battle Pass of the Lobby.

It is good to specify that, to get more V-Bucks in the mode faster Battle royal, you need to buy the Battle Pass (950 V-Bucks) or the Battle Bundle (2,800 V-Bucks) via the menu Battle Pass of the game. In the latter case, in fact, they are obtained 100 V-Bucks directly to level 4.

However, the purchase of these account upgrades is optional: if, in fact, you do not want to spend money, since V-Bucks can be purchased for a fee in euros, my advice is to accumulate V-Bucks with the Free Battle Pass and then spend them on the purchase of Battle Pass or of Battle Bundle.

Workarounds for getting V-Bucks

An alternative solution to get V-Bucks on Fortnite is the one that concerns the purchase of this paid virtual currency. The purchase is possible directly in game, through the menu Shop, but also through the Nintendo eShop.

Beware of scams

To conclude, I want to remind you that, as the developers of Fortnite also stated on Twitter, you must absolutely be wary of anyone who promises to give V-Bucks (or other items) for free, through direct contact in the game or by suggesting to redeem them through special Internet sites: they are, in fact, scams.

The only solution to get V-Bucks for free on Fortnite for Nintendo Switch is the one I told you about in this guide of mine: other solutions not indicated could be a scam attempt.

For this reason, never enter your account login details Epic Games in unofficial websites and, in case you have doubts about the reliability of an Internet site, check the presence of the protocol HTTPS (the closed green lock icon) in the address bar.

Also, to verify the Web reputation of a website, you can use services such as Trustpilot, which allow you to quickly check the reliability of an Internet site based on the feedback provided by users. For more information on this, refer to my guide on how to recognize a fake site.

Finally, I suggest you protect your Epic Games account by activating two-factor authentication via the app (Activate the Authenticator app) or by email (Enable email authentication), by accessing the account settings menu.

In this way, in fact, you can protect your account from unauthorized access, as, by logging in from an unrecognized device, you will also need to enter a disposable code obtained via email or via an app such as Google Authenticator (Android / iOS), as well as the basic account password.

Last but not least, if you believe that your account has been the subject of a scam or if you are experiencing unrecognized logins, contact the technical support of Fortnite, by connecting to this link and pressing the button Contact us which you can see in the upper right corner. The operators of the company will surely be able to help you secure your account.
