In Fortnite Chapter 2, the Battle Pass has changed. Players now do not need Battle Stars to progress. They will be given XP which now progresses the Battle Pass just for playing the game. From the Pass, users will get 1,500 V-Bucks, which is more than every other season individually, which makes a 550 V-Bucks profit if they end up getting all. Moreover, players still have the same 100 tiers, but now they can go further but don’t get any rewards.
