Epic Games announces big changes to daily V-Bucks rewards in Fortnite’s PvE mode

Epic Games has decided to release big changes to Fortnite V-Bucks in the PvE mode. Starting with the v25.10 update, players will no longer be able to obtain premium currency by logging in to Save the World.

Considering that many players relied on this as their main source of V-Bucks, it’s no surprise that Epic has decided to remove it. Starting with the new update, V-Bucks will be obtainable from daily missions and mission alerts only.

This decision has sparked community outrage, leaving many players angry and disappointed.

Fortnite V-Bucks will no longer be included in daily login rewards

Login rewards in Fortnite: Save the World grant more than 10,000 free V-Bucks per year. This comes down to approximately 30 V-Bucks alone, but some players earn even more by completing daily quests and mission alerts.

Starting with the upcoming update, players will no longer be able to obtain free V-Bucks by simply getting into Fortnite’s PvE mode. Instead, they will have to play the game and earn rewards either from missions or quests.

With the release of Fortnite’s v25.10 update, we’ll be making a significant change to the reward systems in Save the World.  We’ll be removing the Daily Login Rewards, and shuffling those rewards to other sources — most notably Daily Quests and Mission Alerts.

Furthermore, the development team announced that higher-level missions will grant more valuable rewards. In addition, Epic Games clarified that players will be able to earn V-Bucks rewards by completing a single daily mission, which is certainly an improvement.

Many Fortnite players have complained about this change all over the internet. “They scrapped the STW story and now they suddenly want us to play STW more to get our normal daily login,” Reddit user Epicduck_ posted.

Dark_Al_97 believes that this is almost as bad as deleting the Founder’s edition of the video game, “This is the closest they can get to pretty much deleting the founder’s edition V-Bucks. You now have to actually play STW, and most won’t be doing that. That’s the entire idea.”

The goal behind this change is to motivate players to play the PvE mode more often. However, AdriJay certainly won’t be doing that: “This won’t convince me to play the game mode even you gave up on.”

Epic Games hasn’t released major content for Fortnite: Save the World in a long time, which is precisely what cpgxrcia pointed out. “If they want us to actively play stw, maybe they should try not abandoning it,” the Reddit user said.

While this change will certainly benefit activate Save the World players, the truth is that there aren’t many of them.

According to the Fortnite player count, the PvE mode had a peak of only 31,981 players so far, which is much less than several Creative maps. In comparison, Battle Royale had a peak of 790,306 players, while Zero Build’s peak was 457,986.
