Fortnite Gold Bars

Gold Bars are the currency in Fortnite and you can use them to purchase Exotic weapons, turn into a Prop, and more. Here’s how to get your hands on Gold Bars in Season 8.

Gold Bars are one of the most useful resources you can get your hands on in Fortnite Season 8. They’re relatively easy to gain and even better, you get to keep them between matches.

You can hire NPCs, upgrade your weapons, and even become a prop by purchasing items from NPCs. Plus, you need to spend Gold to complete the first Punchcard Quest of Season 8.

Here’s every way you can get your hands on Gold, and everything you can spend it on.

How to earn Gold bars in Fortnite Season 8

Fortnite Gold bars and bounty

You can earn Gold Bars in a plethora of ways in Fortnite, but some are more lucrative than others.

Here’s every way to earn Gold in Fortnite Season 8.

Loot

The easiest, but not necessarily the most lucrative, method of earning Gold Bars is by simply looting around the island.

Here are some examples of things you can break and loot for Gold in Season 8:

  • Chests
  • Rare Chests
  • Cash Registers
  • ATMs
  • Beds
  • Sofas

As you gear up for the game ahead, make sure you’re breaking and interacting with these objects to get some extra Gold.

Eliminate players

While looting is a big part of battle royale games, your ultimate goal is to win. This means you’ll probably end up taking out a few players over the course of the match. Make sure to loot them afterward, as fallen players often drop around 8 Gold.

Complete bounties

If you want to earn even more Gold Bars for eliminating players, then you can complete Bounties. You’ll be given a player to hunt down and eliminate, and if you’re successful, you’ll be awarded a pile of Gold.

NPCs no longer give bounties this season, so you’ll need to find Bounty Boards around the map.

Here are the locations of each Bounty Board in Fortnite Season 8:

  • Sludgy Swamp
  • Hydro 16 east of Sludgy Swamp
  • Misty Meadows
  • Gas Station west of Retail Row
  • Camp Cod
  • Wall east of Deep Woods Dish
  • Catty Corner
  • South of Dirty Docks
  • Pylon south of Steamy Stacks
  • The Orchard
  • FN Radio east of Craggy Cliffs
  • Risky Reels
  • Dusted Depot
  • Bony Burbs
  • West end of Weeping Woods
  • Believer Beach
  • Fancy View south-west of Believer Beach
  • Lockie’s Lighthouse

How to spend Gold in Fortnite Season 8

Now you’ve got all of the Gold you need, you can start spending it. With the help of Fortnite.GG, here’s everything you can purchase with Gold Bars in Season 8.

Buy materials and Reveal Future Storm Circle

Fortnite Season 8 Reveal Storm Circle NPCs

New to Season 8, some of the NPCs will allow you to see the location of the next Storm Circle.

You can purchase Reveal Future Storm Circle from:

  • Pitstop in Bony Burbs’s Gas Station
  • Torin at The Aftermath
  • J.B Chimpanski at Mount Kay’s Weather Station

Random NPCs will also allow you to see the locations of nearby Chests, and you can also purchase extra materials with Gold.


Became a prop

If you’re a more stealthy Fortnite player who liked to hide in bushes in Chapter 1, then turning into a prop is the next best thing. By approaching certain NPCs, you can spend 75 Gold to turn into a random prop such as a barrel or trashcan.

Here’s which NPC can turn you into a Prop in Season 8:

  • Dusk west of Lazy Lake

Activate a Rift

You can still purchase Rifts from NPCs in Fortnite Season 8 but so far, you can only purchase one from Dark Jonesy. For 245 Gold, you’ll redeploy high in the air and can glide across the map.

In Fortnite Season 8, you can purchase Rifts from:

  • Dark Jonesy in Steamy Stacks

Purchase Exotic weapons

Fortnite Season 8 Exotic Weapon locations

NPCs in Fortnite also sell Exotic weapons that can give you a major advantage over your opponents. They don’t come cheap, costing as much as 500 Gold, but can dish out some serious damage.

Here’s where you can purchase Exotic weapons in Season 8.

  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: Purchased from Dusk west of Lazy Lake (400 Gold)
  • Dragon’s Breath Sniper: Purchased from Pitstop at the Bony Burbs Gas Station (500 Gold)
  • Chug Cannon: Purchased from The Brat at the Food Truck north of Lazy Lake (600 Gold)

Gold is an incredibly valuable resource in Fortnite, so save it and spend it well to score Victory Royales in Season 8.

Fortnite players have seen their fair share of crossovers over the seasons, with popular characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Spider-Man as well as real-life celebrities like the Wu-Tang Clan joining the battle royale title.

We’ve also seen collaborations with other video game franchises such as Resident Evil and Street Fighter. Now, Epic Games are planning another major Fortnite crossover with the PAC-MAN franchise.

The official PAC-MAN website made a post to announce that items with a PAC-MAN motif will arrive in Fortnite on June 2, 2022. These items will help commemorate the franchise’s 42nd Anniversary.

At the time of writing, Epic Games have yet to confirm what will be included in this brand-new crossover, but we will most likely get more details about the crossover as it draws near.

According to the PAC-MAN Twitter account, Fortnite players will be able to get their hands on the new cosmetics in the Item Shop by spending V-Bucks. This could include individual cosmetic skins as well as a bundle.

While we don’t know the exact price of these cosmetic items, they will most likely cost around 1,500 V-Bucks like various other crossover skins. We might also see the arrival of items like Back Blings, Gliders, Loading Screens, and Pickaxes.

Currently, Epic Games have yet to provide details about exactly which items will appear in the Item Shop or how long they’ll stay available, but we’ll be sure to update you with that information as soon as it becomes available.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 is the next major seasonal update for the popular battle royale, but when will it start? Here’s everything we know, including Season 2’s end date.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 brought some of the biggest changes that we’ve seen in the battle royale title, including the arrival of Overshields and Tactical Sprint as well as the temporary removal of building.

Even with all this new content to sink our teeth into, we can’t help but think about the future. For Fortnite, that’s Chapter 3, Season 3, and if we know Epic, it’s sure to shake up the game in ways we can’t even imagine.

But when will we get our hands on this major update? Well, we’ve got everything you need, including the current Season 2 end date.

When does Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 end?

Epic Games haven’t given us an official end date for Season 2, but we can use the game’s Battle Pass to determine when it will come to a close.

According to the Battle Pass, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end on Friday, June 3, 2022.

While Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 did not have an event to bring things to an end, data miners have uncovered strings in the v20.40 update files, and these indicate that Chapter 3, Season 2 may end with a live event.

The data miners mentioned an in-game countdown, a pre-event lobby, as well as brand-new skins for Paradigm and Jonesy. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that these are leaks, so take this information with a grain of salt.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 start date

With the Season 2 end date in mind, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 is set to begin on Saturday, June 4, 2022.

This would be the second consecutive time that Epic have started a new season on a weekend, with Season 2 kicking off on a Sunday.

Of course, it’s still possible that Epic Games could delay it by a couple of days, as most Fortnite updates release on a Tuesday. That would mean the patch is unlikely to launch any later than June 7, 2022.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 leaks

At the time of writing, Epic Games haven’t revealed what content players should expect when Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 finally goes live. The developers will probably drop teasers near the release date of the season update.

Until that happens, we’ll have to rely on data miners sifting through the game files to try and discover what is coming next. A few notable leakers have uncovered brand-new content that may arrive in Season 3.

Darth Vader leaks in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3

After the developers showcased the Season 3 cinematic intro during the State of Unreal showcase, Fortnite data miner ‘iFireMonkey’ discovered a folder named “C3S3_Vader” in the presentation.

This has caused speculation about the arrival of iconic villain Darth Vader in Chapter 3, Season 3. Epic Games have previously added other Star Wars characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi to Fortnite, so this wouldn’t be surprising.

According to data miner ‘ShiinaBR,’ Darth Vader will be a boss NPC that players can battle in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3. While this sounds exciting, these are still just leaks, and we hope that the developers will confirm Vader’s arrival in an official announcement.

We’ll be sure to keep this post updated with any additional leaks or rumors that are discovered as the release date for Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 draws near.
