A Battle Pass can be purchased for 950 V-Bucks (2,800 If you get the Battle Bundle) and the price of 950 V-Bucks ($9.50) has not changed since its introduction. Battle Passes are tied to each season of play in Battle Royale and provide players with a variety of items, including skins, Back Blings, Gliders, banner icons, loading screens, emotes, Harvesting Tool skins, sprays, toys, pets, music packs, and wraps by doing Daily Challenges and Missions.

Battle Pass History and Mechanics

Season 1

  • C1-1 doesn’t have a Battle Pass, unlike other seasons. But the progression system is like the Battle Pass in Chapter 2. You have to level up to unlock rewards and purchase rewards. To level up, you must earn XP. XP can be earned through matches. You get more XP if you rank high, eliminate opponents, survive, etc. Certain challenges can be completed to receive large amounts of XP.

Season 2 - Season X

  • The Battle Pass was introduced in C1-2. The progression system now uses Battle Stars, which can be obtained by levelling up. This also includes Challenges (In C1-X onwards, they are called Missions).
  • The Free Pass remains in the game with rewards going up to Tier 62.
  • In C1-2, the Battle Pass had 70 tiers. C1-3 onwards, that number became 100.

Chapter 2: Season 1

  • The Battle Pass was reworked for C2-1. Battle Stars have been removed and the progression system is reverted to the one used in C1-1, which is the XP system. This means that tiers are also removed, the basis of the Battle Pass is now levels. All Missions are available to all players and give XP by completing them. You can also go beyond Level 100, though there you will no longer earn rewards every tier.
  • The Free Pass now has rewards beyond Level 62 because there is no difference with Battle Pass progression this time around.
  • In v11.20, Daily Challenges returned to the game, making progression easier.
  • In the v11.30 update of Fortnite, an Annual Pass was leaked by people as a result of data mining the v11.30 update build.
    • It was later confirmed by Epic Games that the Annual Pass is a prototype and did not end up making the final cut and release in Fortnite.

Chapter 2: Season 2

  • The Battle Pass Tab received a revamp to match the season’s theme. There was now a mission table, which would show you where to go to complete certain challenges.
  • Going higher than tier 100 would give you certain styles for the already owned outfits.
    • Golden Midas
    • Golden Brutus
    • Golden TNTina
    • Golden Meowscles
    • Golden Skye
    • Golden Agent Peely

Chapter 2: Season 3 - Current

  • There is a new ‘Build-a-brella’ option with the battle pass, allowing players to make their own unique umbrella to use.
  • Daily challenges have been replaced by Quick Challenges, a set of 5 challenges repeating infinitely, with 5 challenges worth 10x more xp becoming avaliable each day
  • Medals are now infinite but provide less xp.
  • Medal Punchcards are now Punch Cards

Seasons last 80 days on average. Every season, major overhauls are usually added to the game to feel different than the previous.
