While it may not be the season to give in FortniteHowever, Epic Games provides free V-Bucks. While this may sound too good to be true as there are numerous V-Bucks scams going on within the community, this is not the case this time.

However, not everyone will be eligible to receive V-Bucks.

With that said, here’s everything you need to know about the situation and why players are getting up to 500 V-Bucks for free.


The fiasco of the Saint Academy Quest Pack of Fortnite and 500 free V-Bucks

Due to an internal tagging issue, this particular mission pack stated that players would earn 1,500 V-Bucks. However, that was not the case as the actual amount credited to players was 1,000 V-Bucks. To elaborate, the mission pack cover image mentions that players can earn up to 1,000 V-Bucks. However, the finer details within the package mention 1500 V-Bucks.

Since the details mentioned within the mission pack are more important than the cover, players took note of this information and purchased accordingly. After this bug was discovered by epic games, posted an official tweet addressing the issue. Shortly after, another tweet was posted, stating that it had been fixed.

We are aware of an issue causing the Saint Academy Quest Pack game offer description to incorrectly show that it awards more than the intended 1,000 V-Bucks. We will provide more information when we have it.

Still, in that short period of time, several thousand Fortnite users had already purchased the bundle with the intention of earning 1,500 V-Bucks. Since this was Epic Games’ fault for mislabeling and providing incorrect information, they decided to compensate affected players.

Those who purchased the quest pack before the information in the Item Shop was corrected are eligible to receive the 500 V-Bucks. As of today (October 28), players have already started receiving their in-game compensation. Those who purchased the Saint Academy Quest Pack before the bug was fixed will get 500 V-Bucks, no questions asked.

We fixed the issue, Saint Academy Quest Pack now correctly displays the intended amount of 1,000 V-Bucks in the in-game offer description. We will also award 500 V-Bucks to players who purchased the Saint Academy Quest Pack prior to this fix as compensation.

For those who haven’t received compensation yet, it’s best to wait at least a day before contacting the Epic Games support team. That said, you can also check the time of purchase to make sure the mission pack was purchased before the fix was implemented.

Can you still get 500 free V-Bucks by purchasing the Saint Academy Quest Pack today?

No, there is currently no way to get the free 500 V-Bucks by purchasing the Saint Academy Quest Pack now. Only those players who purchased it on October 24 before the game information was corrected are eligible. That said, buying the pack now will only earn you 1,000 V-Bucks in total.

Honestly, for the price of $7.99, it’s not a bad cosmetic pack to buy, considering it contains three cosmetic items (outfit, back bling, and harvesting tool) in addition to the 1,000 mentioned above. turkeys.
