Unlock Save the World or Play Battle Royale
The only two ways to earn V-Bucks without paying real money is to play the PVE mode Save the World, or get them from the Battle Royale mode in the free pass.
You can unlock Save The World for $40(USD) but according to Epic it will be free to play sometime in 2018. While you may say “I can buy 2000 V-Bucks for that!,” you’ll be able to keep earning V-Bucks for free long after you’ve made back your initial downpayment.
V-Bucks are shared across your account, so any currency you earn in Save The World can be used at your discretion in Battle Royale as well!
Main Story/Storm Shield Defenses
As you progress through the main story, you’ll unlock Storm Shield Defenses. These always reward you with 100 V-Bucks, and are a great (replayable) way to earn cash.
After finishing some early quests, you’ll unlock challenges that each offer 50 V-Bucks reward.
These are often centered around doing a certain type of mission multiple times, such as completing any 3 missions, but they can only be completed up to 10 times.
More reliable than Challenges as they are offered routinely, Daily Quests also offer 50 V-Bucks each.
These objectives are usually focused on ancillary tasks during your missions, like destroying a set number of specific objects (trucks, vending machines, etc) around the map.
Leveling up your Collector’s Book
The 10th skill in your Tier 1 Skill Tree is the Recycling And Collection Book skill. Anytime you get a duplicate item, from Heroes to Weapons to Schematics, you should check to see if you can add it to your Collector’s Book.
As you fill out the pages of the book, Level 6 milestones will reward you with 500 V-Bucks.
Use caution to not put things in your collector’s book that you want to keep, since once you submit it for archiving, it becomes unusable. Only deposit your duplicates!
PaySafeCard or PayPal Money From Points Reward Sites
There are some points rewards websites, such as PointsPrizes, which may reward users with points for completing surveys and other offers. Once you’ve accumulated enough points they will send you a prize such as a free PaySafeCard or PayPal money, which you can then use to buy V-Bucks.
This option may provide an alternative – particularly if you absolutely don’t have enough money to purchase Save The World.
These are established sites with a proven income source and therefore do offer genuine opportunities. However, it can take some time to earn enough points.
Avoid Generator & Hack Sites
There are some terrible scam sites, which try to fool users into thinking they can somehow instantly generate v-bucks. These sites will usually ask for ‘human verification’ before asking you to do a survey.
Other scam sites will pretend to have some hack or script and will ask for your account login information. You should never share your login information, as you can easily have your account hacked.
