You can only buy the Battle Pass with  buy it with V-Bucks. This means you’ll spend about $10 to get 1,000 V-Bucks and have 50 left over. This strategy helps convince players to spend on more V-Bucks or look for ways to earn free V-Bucks so that players don’t have 50 V-Bucks wasted in an account.

The Season 4 Battle Pass Bundle is still 2,800 and unlocks your next 25 levels. If you bought the Season 3 Battle Pass you automatically get five levels unlocked, so this jumps you to level 30 immediately.

5 Reasons to Buy Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass, 3 Reasons To Wait

Buy Now For the Best Value

Epic continues to make the Battle Pass a bigger and bigger reward system for players. While the loot is all cosmetic, they definitely reward paying players with more items and things to do in the game. 

The Battle Pass offers 75 to 150 hours of playtime to unlock all of the content with 100 tiers in the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass. This time around you get approximately 25,000 V-Bucks worth of items when you complete the Battle Pass. 

One thing we love about the Battle Pass is that the rewards are retroactive, so if you buy the Battle Pass after 1 month, you get all the tiers you already unlocked. That said, there is a benefit to buying the new Battle Pass as soon as possible if you are motivated like we are. 

When you start Fortnite Season 4 with the Battle Pass you will be able to earn XP boosts that will help you level up faster and unlock the rewards and new challenges faster. Ultimately you get more value if you start Season 4 with the Battle Pass than if you buy it halfway through, even though you get the same rewards.
