Battle Pass

The Season 6 Battle Pass will once again play an important part in the season and although we're unsure what it will include, we can expect plenty of skins, emotes, pickaxes and gliders.

The new Battle Pass will contain 100 tiers of content for players to complete over the span of the season.

This past season was one that fans were rather disappointed with, however. A lot of the skins and other cosmetic items were not up to the player's standards as compared to previous seasons.

The premium Battle Pass will cost 950 V-Bucks for the battle pass - this is about £7-8.

You can also obtain the Battle Pass Bundle, which will cost 2800 V-Bucks and rewards you with access to the first 25 tiers of the Battle Pass immediately.

Gifting the Battle Pass will cost $7.59 (without tax).

Alternatively, you can use the V-Bucks you accumulated throughout Season 5 to purchase the new pass for free.

To go from Level 1 to Level 100 without buying ANY tiers you'll need to gain 7,570,000 XP total.

If you're not interested in spending money, you can complete the free battle pass; although it will come with considerably fewer rewards.

Alternatively, you can sign up to Fortnite Crew to get the pass for free.
