The Item Shop holds all kinds of goodies that players can exchange their hard-earned V-Bucks for.

The most popular use for V-Bucks is for buying character skins, but that’s not all they’re used for. Players can also grab exclusive pickaxes, weapon wraps, and brand-new emotes with these elusive coins.

On top of that, they are also used to purchase the current season’s Battle Pass. Each pass costs 950 V-Bucks but provides a treasure trove of new and exclusive content that you can’t unlock elsewhere in the game.

Remember that you can also use a Refund Request to get V-Bucks back for unwanted skin or cosmetics within 30 days of purchasing. Each player gets three a year, so make sure to use them carefully.

So, there you have it — that’s everything you need to know about how to get free V-Bucks with codes in Fortnite.
