Epic Games’ latest collaboration with Elder Scrolls Online is accidentally rewarding players with 300 free V-Bucks in Fortnite.

This promotional event is offering players a free Back Bling if they claim the game for free through the Epic Games Store.

However, it appears an issue is allowing gamers to claim the game more than once which is causing issues with the rewards distribution. Luckily, this particular problem is benefiting Fortnite players.

How to Get 300 Free V-Bucks in Fortnite

This method no longer works. Epic Games have removed the 300 V-Bucks from players who used the method.

To obtain 300 free V-Bucks in Fortnite, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Epic Games Store.
  2. Log in to your account.
  3. Ensure your Epic Games account is linked to platform you play on.
    • Click on your name located in the top right corner of the webpage.
    • Select “Account” from the dropdown menu.
    • On the left-hand taskbar, click on “Apps and Accounts.”
    • Press Connect on your chosen platform.
  4. Look for Elder Scrolls Online in the store.
  5. Click on the “Get” button and proceed to “Place Order.”
  6. Upon confirmation, click on “Get” again to claim the V-Bucks.
  7. After the second click, you might encounter an error message stating, “We are experiencing high transaction volume, please try again later.” Also, a 60-second timer will appear before you can attempt to “Place Order” again.
  8. Once the timer reaches zero, click on “Place Order” again to successfully claim the game and receive the 300 free V-Bucks.
  9. Open Fortnite to claim the V-Bucks.
Fortnite Free V-Bucks

Using the glitch by claiming it twice tricks Fortnite into registering the item as refunded, resulting in a reward of 300 free V-Bucks.

Due to the game’s misconception, this glitch can only be utilized once. Any further attempts to claim the promotion will not give you any free V-Bucks.

HYPEX was the first to bring attention to this glitch, assuring players that receiving the extra V-Bucks through this method will not result in bans.

The glitch is considered a problem stemming from the developers’ oversight rather than an intentional exploit.
