Fortnite is currently in the midst of its week nine challenges for Season 3, but a lot of the talk has been aimed elsewhere thanks to shocking instances that have occurred. Apple have banned the game from the iOS store thanks to Epic Games’ megadrop, and – aside from asking why the game has been banned – people are asking: why did I just get free V-bucks? Here you’ll discover the answer as well as why you’ve been given the Shooting Starstaff Pickaxe.
As previously mentioned, Fortnite has been banned from the iOS store and this has resulted in Epic Games taking legal action against Apple. However, aside from just Apple, it appears that the game has also been removed from the Google Play store.
While there’s endless discussions about why the game has been banned by both Google and Apple, below you’ll discover why you’ve been given free V-bucks and the Shooting Starstaff Pickaxe.
Why did I get free V-bucks in Fortnite?
You’ve been given free V-bucks in Fortnite because Epic Games are celebrating their Mega Drop.
If you’ve purchased anything from the Fortnite item shop between July 14th and August 13th, you’ll be given a bag of free V-bucks.
In addition to the in-game currency, you’ll also be given the Shooting Starstaff Pickaxe.
For those who haven’t received anything, know that the Epic Games giveaway won’t be completed until August 17th.
This means there are still a couple of days left for you to be given an assortment of free V-bucks and the aforementioned pickaxe.
