- Fortnite fans are upset about changes to Battle Pass V-Bucks rewards, which require players to reach level 141 to get the same rewards they used to get at level 100.
- Daily challenges have been replaced with match challenges, making it more time-consuming to complete challenges and level up the Battle Pass.
- Players are concerned that this update may indicate more stringent rewards in the future, and there is worry that the V-Bucks amount could decrease.
Fortnite fans are voicing their concerns over the changes to Battle Pass V-Bucks rewards that have been introduced lately. While this revamp was part of Fortnite‘s seasonal update, which was released all the way back in December, the impact of these changes is amplified given that the season’s end is knocking on the door and many are quite unsure about whether they will be able to reach the required level in time.
One of the critical changes made as part of Fortnite‘s Chapter 5 Season 1 update was the replacement of daily challenges with match challenges. Instead of getting a few challenges every day, players now need to select a challenge right before the start of every match. This change effectively meant that players had to dedicate a match for each challenge, unlike being able to complete multiple of them at one go. Things got even trickier when players had to tackle some of the hardest Fortnite challenges, making it quite monotonous for them to retry with the same objective. To make matters worse, this came in conjunction with a change to Battle Pass V-Bucks rewards.
Rumor: Fortnite Could Be Crossing Over With Power Rangers
A new rumor suggests that Fortnite could see a Morphinominal crossover with the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the near future.
Previously, players would get 1,500 V-Bucks in total for reaching level 100 of the Battle Pass. In the current season, it requires players to reach level 141 to get the entire Fortnite Battle Pass V-Bucks they used to get in the past. While it is still possible to recoup the entire cost of the Battle Pass before level 100 by getting 1,000 V-Bucks, the remaining 500 V-Bucks are locked behind the extra rewards.
Fortnite’s Revamped V-Bucks Rewards For Battle Pass Sparks Outrage
Over on Reddit, the community is quite unhappy with the changes. The extra level requirements for V-Bucks are pushing players to grind XP maps even more, making it far more difficult for them to get the V-Bucks, which is by far one of the most lucrative rewards of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1’s Battle Pass. When the introduction of match challenges is also taken into account, the amount of time required to level up the Battle Pass rises even further.
While players could earlier get a hefty amount of XP from each match since they could tackle multiple challenges at once, some have highlighted that they now end up being a part of multiple matches without being able to complete a challenge. A few fans have circled back to how it used to be possible to earn 1,000 V-Bucks by level 55, further emphasizing how drastic this change is.
Thankfully, players have come up with ways to alleviate the issue, with many suggesting that the LEGO mode seems to be a gold mine for earning XP. While that has been nerfed too to some extent, as it is no longer possible to earn XP by going AFK indefinitely in Fortnite‘s LEGO mode, some players have highlighted that there is a workaround by moving their character every now and then. That being said, fans are still worried if the update is a precursor to more stringent battle pass rewards going forward, with many speculating that the V-Bucks amount could also possibly go down in the future. While the developers have rolled back changes after receiving backlash from the community in the past, it remains to be seen if they end up doing it once again.
Fortnite is a massively popular game that has several modes, the most famous of which is the online battle royale mode. In this mode, players collect items, build structures, and battle it out to be the ultimate victor.
