Free Fortnite V-Bucks as part of a new community battle. Dates, awards and more

Epic is getting ready for the next community battle, in which players will be able to earn free rewards.

“Community Battles” are side mini-events that are held from time to time independently of the events taking place in Fortnite. The latest leaks reveal that another such initiative will soon be organized.

All this is part of the Fortnite and NBA collaboration. As we read, players will choose one of the 30 NBA teams to lead them to victory.

New Community Battle

According to unconfirmed information, everything will start on May 12, 2021, and will last for the next four days. So it won’t be too long.

“Fortnite x NBA Team Battle players can choose from 30 NBA teams and complete various daily tasks in the game. Each completed task will help earn points for their team. The team with the most points at the end of the battle is the winner.”

As we learn from leaks, there will be two types of tasks. The daily ones and those that last all the time, i.e. collecting as many eliminations as possible, etc. Is it worth being interested in? Of course. Especially because of the awards.

  • 1st place – 500 V-Bucks and a special backpack of the NBA championship
  • 2nd place – 300 V-Bucks
  • 3rd place – 100 V-Bucks

Everyone who will take part will receive commemorative graffiti. There is also talk of a new “toy”, but it is not known for which place. The leakers managed to recreate its appearance directly in Fortnite.

How to subscribe to it? As always, around May 12, a special website will be made available, where players will have to join one of the 30 teams. In total, the event will be intended for 450,000 players and 550,000 fans.
