Gold bars are a unique currency in Fortnite. They were introduced back in Chapter 2 Season 5 and have managed to stick around even two seasons later.
Although earning gold bars in Fortnite is fairly simple, you might not be happy with the amount of gold you earn. Spending them is quite easy though.
How to earn gold bars in Fortnite?
There are a few interesting ways in which you can earn gold bars in Fortnite season 7.
The first method is by eliminating enemy loopers. Every time you successfully eliminate a looper, they'll drop around 8 gold bars for you.
Other than that, looting legendary chests and I.O. chests is sure to drop gold bars for you as well.
You could also head into any house and destroy furniture. That yields around four to eight gold bars as well.
Finally, you can earn gold bars by completing the bounties and missions that you get from payphones and NPCs that are spread around the island.
In order to complete the Fortnite week 6 challenge you'll have to earn 500 gold bars. However, you may not be able to do it in one game. You may have to play a couple of games to successfully hit that mark.
How to spend gold bars in Fortnite?
When it comes to spending, there are a few ways in which you can do it. And unlike earning gold bars, you'll be able to spend 500 bars in one game itself, thereby finishing the Fortnite week 6 challenge associated with it.
You could either head over to one of the upgrade stations and upgrade your weapons. Different rarities have a different cost. Higher the rarity, more expensive the upgrade.
You could also head over to the different vending machines that are spread over the island. From armor to weapons, these mending machines dish out almost everything in exchange for gold.
And finally, if you're feeling like donating, you can head over to Dreamflower and tip the bus driver a large amount of gold bars too.
Indulging in either of these activities will help you complete the Fortnite week 6 challenge associated with spending gold bars in Fortnite Season 7.
