Free V-Bucks and Fortnite cosmetics – the NBA event
The long-awaited NBA Fortnite event is finally here, which means that you can get some free rewards, including V-Bucks and different cosmetics.
V-Bucks are only available as a reward for the teams that get to the top-3 by getting the highest score. So, if you are lucky enough to get in the winner team, be sure to help it by completing some challenges.
The event will last until May 23.
How to participate
- First, you need to go to the NBA event website and login with your Fortnite account (the site might take a while to load due to the large amount of requests): https://nbateambattles.fortnite.com/xpwwng/
- Once you’re on the main page, go to the TEAMS section and select the team that still has some free space. You can define such a team by looking at the yellow “X / 15000 MEMBERS” text. If the site lags and doesn’t allow you to select the team, just go to its page (LEARN MORE) and join.
- Important: if you select a full team, you will become a fan instead of a team member. This won’t allow you to get the V-Bucks, but you will still be able to get other rewards.
- When you join a team, the challenges will become available. You need to complete them to get your team to the top. You can see the challenges in the PROFILE section of the menu.
- All the team members of the top-1 team will get 500 V-Bucks each. All the team members and fans will also get a free NBA Championship Trophy back bling.
- All the top-2 team members will get 300 V-Bucks each.
- All the top-3 team members will get 100 V-Bucks each.
- All the team members and fans will get the Spin spray if they’ve completed at least 3 challenges
- All the team members and fans will get a Banner if they’ve completed at least 5 challenges
