How Many V-Bucks Can You Score From The Battle Pass In Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8?

Hey friend! As a fellow Fortnite fanatic, I know you‘re probably curious how many free V-Bucks you can unlock in the current Chapter 2 Season 8 Battle Pass. Well, you came to the right place!

After crunching the numbers, I found that you can earn around 2,750 V-Bucks for free from the Season 8 Battle Pass. That‘s a ton of Vinderbucks to spend on new skins, emotes, and more in the Item Shop!

Let me walk you through all the details.

V-Bucks On The Free Pass Track – 300 V-Bucks

Even if you don‘t buy the Battle Pass, you can still earn some bonus V-Bucks by leveling up the free track.

Here are the V-Buck rewards on the Season 8 free pass track:

Tier 6 100 V-Bucks
Tier 26 100 V-Bucks
Tier 67 100 V-Bucks

These V-Bucks are yours just for playing during the season and gaining XP to unlock tiers. Even as a free player, you can score 300 V-Bucks easily.

Premium Pass V-Bucks – 1,500 V-Bucks

Now, if you decide to buy the 950 V-Buck premium Battle Pass, your V-Bucks income really starts ramping up.

Take a look at all the V-Buck prizes hidden in those premium tiers:

Tier 5 150 V-Bucks
Tier 10 100 V-Bucks
Tier 15 100 V-Bucks
Tier 20 150 V-Bucks
Tier 25 150 V-Bucks
Tier 30 100 V-Bucks
Tier 35 150 V-Bucks
Tier 40 150 V-Bucks
Tier 45 100 V-Bucks
Tier 50 150 V-Bucks
Tier 55 150 V-Bucks
Tier 60 100 V-Bucks
Tier 65 150 V-Bucks
Tier 70 800 V-Bucks
Tier 75 150 V-Bucks
Tier 80 150 V-Bucks
Tier 85 100 V-Bucks
Tier 90 150 V-Bucks
Tier 95 150 V-Bucks
Tier 100 100 V-Bucks

That comes out to 1,500 V-Bucks you can unlock on the premium track. Pretty sweet!

Buying the 950 V-Buck pass essentially pays for itself with all the V-Bucks you earn back. So it’s a great deal.

V-Bucks From Special Skins – 150 Extra V-Bucks

On top of the normal rewards, some special Battle Pass skins like Carnage give you bonus V-Bucks for unlocking them at certain tiers:

  • Bonus: Carnage Outfit (Tier 90) – 100 V-Bucks
  • Bonus: Maximum Carnage Spray (Tier 95) – 50 V-Bucks

So if you unlock Carnage, you get an extra 150 V-Bucks added to your stack!

Every little bit counts.

Battle Pass Bundle – 650 V-Bucks

Now, if you really want a jump start, you can pick up the one-time Battle Pass Bundle instead of the normal Pass.

The Bundle costs 2,800 V-Bucks and immediately unlocks the first 25 tiers of the Pass. That includes all the V-Bucks rewards in those initial tiers:

Tier 5 150 V-Bucks
Tier 10 100 V-Bucks
Tier 15 100 V-Bucks
Tier 20 150 V-Bucks
Tier 25 150 V-Bucks

Buying the Bundle gives you 650 extra V-Bucks right off the bat from those tiers. Pretty good value if you want to skip straight to the good rewards.

You’ll still continue earning V-Bucks from the later tiers too after buying the Bundle.

Daily Log-In V-Bucks – Around 150 V-Bucks

The last way to score some free Vinderbucks is by logging in every day. The daily rewards include small amounts of V-Bucks here and there.

It varies day to day, but over the course of a season you can expect to get around 150 V-Bucks from consistent daily log-ins.

Every little bit helps, right? So make sure to check those daily rewards and grab any V-Bucks that pop up.

Total Estimated Haul – Around 2,750 V-Bucks!

Let‘s add up all those V-Bucks sources:

  • 300 from Free Pass
  • 1,500 from Premium Pass
  • 150 from Carnage Rewards
  • 650 from Battle Pass Bundle
  • 150 from Daily Log-ins

The total estimated haul is around 2,750 V-Bucks! Dang, that‘s a lot of Vinderbucks!

For comparison, that‘s over $25 worth of V-Bucks if you were to buy them normally. But you can earn all of them for free just by playing during Season 8.

What Can You Buy With Your Haul?

With 2,750 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you‘ve got plenty of options for new swag from the Item Shop. Here are some ideas:

  • 1 Legendary outfit (2,000 V-Bucks)
  • 2 Epic outfits (1,500 V-Bucks each)
  • 1 Legendary glider (1,200 V-Bucks)
  • 3 Rare emotes (500 V-Bucks each)
  • 1 Rare outfit (1,200 V-Bucks)
  • 4 Epic wraps (300 V-Bucks each)

I‘d grab one sick Legendary skin, an Epic glider, and some sweet emotes. But get whatever you want – the V-Bucks are yours to spend however you like!

The best part is all the stuff you unlock stays in your locker forever. So you can keep flexing those skins and items every season.

Is The Battle Pass Worth It For The V-Bucks?

For most regular players, the Battle Pass is totally worth it just for the V-Bucks:


  • You earn back the 950 V-Buck cost
  • Unlock 100+ tiers of exclusive gear
  • Get over 2,000 extra V-Bucks to spend
  • Premium skins like Carnage are exclusive to the Pass
  • All rewards carry over season to season


  • Costs 950 V-Bucks up front
  • Need to play regularly to unlock all tiers

For casual players, you can skip the Pass and just earn a few hundred V-Bucks from free tiers and log-ins.

But if you play Fortnite regularly, the Pass pays for itself and hooks you up with tons of unlockable V-Bucks and rewards.

So if you‘re a frequent player, I‘d say the Season 8 Battle Pass is definitely worth picking up before it disappears in early December. Grab it today and start raking in those sweet V-Bucks!
