V-Bucks are the currency we use in Fortnite to to buy all kinds of cosmetic itemsas well as to purchase special packs and the Battle Pass.
The name V-Bucks is an abstract concept, so to speak, as it is nothing more than the name for the game’s virtual currency; a currency that does not physically exist and with which we can only buy things in Fortnite.
What are V-Bucks used for?
Most of the outfits and other accessories that we can buy in Fortnite can only be bought with V-Bucks. That is, it is not possible to buy them directly with real money, but we would first have to buy the V-Bucks (pay with euros) to then use these V-Bucks to buy a skin, for example.
Various add-ons in the Fortnite Store
With V-Bucks we can buy the following things in Fortnite:
- Add-ons (skins, dances, graffiti…)
- Battle Pass
- Battle Pass aufleveln
- Some add-on packages
However, there are also things that you cannot buy with V-Bucks:
- V-Bucks (that would be illogical)
- Some add-on packages
- Fortnite Crew Subscription
How do you buy V Bucks?
V-Bucks can be redeemed with real money directly in-game, in stores, or in the Stores of the various digital platforms (Epic Games Store in the case of Android).
In Fortnite, if we want to buy V-Bucks ourselves, from the home platform we tap on the V-Buck currency icon and then on the pack of V-Bucks that we want to buy.
Tap the V-Bucks icon to bring up the V-Bucks purchase menu
Tap on the next screen Kaufen.

Finally, we must choose a payment method and enter our details to complete the purchase.

We must take into account a very important detail: if we play on Nintendo or PlayStation we must buy the V-Bucks on their digital platform (Nintendo eShop or PlayStation Store), because the V-Bucks we buy on the Epic Games Store would are not reflected on those platforms, and vice versa.
