Fortnite: how to earn bullion easily? The 72hrs pro player explains it to us

Fortnite

Thomas “72hrs” Mulligan, pro player and streamer of Team Liquid explained in a recent live how it is possible to quickly earn gold bars in the Arena and in tournaments and thus have access to exotic weapons.

72hrs , after noticing how many players in the FNCS quickly acquire gold bars shortly after landing, he is convinced that the trick he has noticed must have been in vogue for some time now.

The gold bars gold, for the uninitiated, are a new "currency" available in game from the debut of season 5 (they can be found all over the island, recovered from enemies or earned by completing bounties). Ingots can be used to purchase exotic weapons or even upgrade the same weapons in the inventory.

Fortnite players know that it is possible to find (non-hostile) NPCs scattered around the island; these will give missions to complete that will reward players with gold bars. Well, the Liquid streamer (we invite you to read our special to learn about the ambitions of the historic export organization) has discovered that there are timed missions that allow you to keep more challenges active between different modes and games, even in the Arena. br>
This means that players can enter a non-competitive game, activate missions and carry them out until they are almost completed, exit the match and immediately afterwards participate in an FNCS game and find themselves with the mission almost completed. After that, all you need to do is finish the quests as quickly as possible, to get gold bars immediately and thus have a nice advantage over your opponents.

Obviously, at the moment, it is not known whether is an exploit or a cheat that could lead Epic Games to impose bans and penalties in the competitive (or, in any case, to intervene with a corrective patch).





‘Fortnite’ Is Giving Out 1,000 V-Bucks If You Meet Its Class Action Lawsuit Conditions

Fortnite

Epic

While the “big” Fortnite lawsuit right now is Epic Games and its Godzilla-like battle against Apple and the iOS store, that hasn’t been the only time they’ve gone to court. And now, that may benefit you, albeit in a kind of weird way.


Epic was faced with a class-action lawsuit about loot boxes that it has decided to settle, and now it’s awarding 1,000 V-Bucks to all players who qualify. How do you qualify? If you purchased any of the Fortnite: Save the World or Rocket League loot boxes that were sold starting in 2015. For this, you don’t have to submit a claim, you will simply log in and find 1,000 V-Bucks in your account, but there may be a way to get actual money as part of $26.5 million in cash allotted for this settlement.


Why did this happen in the first place? From the lawsuit FAQ:


“The lawsuit alleges that Epic Games violated state consumer protection laws, prevented minors from exercising their contractual disaffirmation rights, and negligently misrepresented the value of its in-game items in connection with its Fortnite and Rocket League video games.”


So, Epic was not found “guilty” of this, but instead decided to settle with the note that the settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing on its end. The lawsuit was based on the US, but Epic has decided to give the 1,000 V-Bucks to anyone around the world who bought the loot boxes.

The way to get additional, potential real-life money from this settlement is a little more tricky. You need to submit a separate claim form (documents which are not even online yet), and the condition there is if you made the loot box purchase as a minor without parental permission, in which case you could get an actual, monetary refund in addition the V-Bucks. The catch is that you would have to close the Epic Games account you created to buy the loot boxes when you were a minor, so I doubt many people are going to go down this road.


You also have the option to exclude yourself from this settlement, as receiving it will mean you can’t ever sue Epic about this complaint again. So uh, if you want, you can do that too. Again, probably not going to be a popular option.


Class action lawsuits like these are always kind of weird and don’t usually get the people affected all that much unless they’re very serious if we’re talking about wrongful death and health issues and things like that. But for video game loot boxes, $10 in fake Fortnite money is about the best you can hope for. I don’t know when the V-Bucks go out, but it should be soon.
