Rewards System

For the first time, progressing through the game allowed you to get rewards that could be purchased for V-Bucks, which unless you have Save The World, can be obtained through in-game purchases for real money.

XP Progression System

Unlike the following seasons, it had no Battle Pass. Instead, it used an XP progression system, where in you unlocked rewards to purchase by getting XP from regular Battle Royale games. As mentioned above, you needed to have V-Bucks to actually get them.

This progression system was taken away with the introduction of the Battle Pass in Season 2, and was reintroduced with a few alterations in Chapter 2: Season 1.
