How to earn Fortnite Battle Stars

Luckily, earning Battle Stars is simple in Fortnite Season 8; you’ll earn five Battle Stars every time you level up. Whether that’s by completing challenges or purchasing Battle Pass Levels with V-Bucks, you’ll still earn the five Battle Stars.

And you don’t need to own the Battle Pass to earn them either, since all players earn the same number of Battle Stars when they level up, and each page of the Battle Pass has rewards available for all players to claim as you play.

There is no doubt that the addition of this feature has allowed players to earn even more of their favorite cosmetic items ever since they were first introduced.
