Gold Bars are the currency in Fortnite and you can use them to purchase Exotic weapons, turn into a Prop, and more. Here’s how to get your hands on Gold Bars in Season 8.
Gold Bars are one of the most useful resources you can get your hands on in Fortnite Season 8. They’re relatively easy to gain and even better, you get to keep them between matches.
Here’s every way you can get your hands on Gold, and everything you can spend it on.
How to earn Gold bars in Fortnite Season 8
You can earn Gold Bars in a plethora of ways in Fortnite, but some are more lucrative than others.
Here’s every way to earn Gold in Fortnite Season 8.
The easiest, but not necessarily the most lucrative, method of earning Gold Bars is by simply looting around the island.
Here are some examples of things you can break and loot for Gold in Season 8:
- Rare Chests
- Cash Registers
As you gear up for the game ahead, make sure you’re breaking and interacting with these objects to get some extra Gold.
While looting is a big part of battle royale games, your ultimate goal is to win. This means you’ll probably end up taking out a few players over the course of the match. Make sure to loot them afterward, as fallen players often drop around 8 Gold.
If you want to earn even more Gold Bars for eliminating players, then you can complete Bounties. You’ll be given a player to hunt down and eliminate, and if you’re successful, you’ll be awarded a pile of Gold.
NPCs no longer give bounties this season, so you’ll need to find Bounty Boards around the map.
Here are the locations of each Bounty Board in Fortnite Season 8:
- Sludgy Swamp
- Hydro 16 east of Sludgy Swamp
- Misty Meadows
- Gas Station west of Retail Row
- Camp Cod
- Wall east of Deep Woods Dish
- Catty Corner
- South of Dirty Docks
- Pylon south of Steamy Stacks
- The Orchard
- FN Radio east of Craggy Cliffs
- Risky Reels
- Dusted Depot
- Bony Burbs
- West end of Weeping Woods
- Believer Beach
- Fancy View south-west of Believer Beach
- Lockie’s Lighthouse
How to spend Gold in Fortnite Season 8
Now you’ve got all of the Gold you need, you can start spending it. With the help of Fortnite.GG, here’s everything you can purchase with Gold Bars in Season 8.
Buy materials and Reveal Future Storm Circle
New to Season 8, some of the NPCs will allow you to see the location of the next Storm Circle.
You can purchase Reveal Future Storm Circle from:
- Pitstop in Bony Burbs’s Gas Station
- Torin at The Aftermath
- J.B Chimpanski at Mount Kay’s Weather Station
Random NPCs will also allow you to see the locations of nearby Chests, and you can also purchase extra materials with Gold.
Became a prop
If you’re a more stealthy Fortnite player who liked to hide in bushes in Chapter 1, then turning into a prop is the next best thing. By approaching certain NPCs, you can spend 75 Gold to turn into a random prop such as a barrel or trashcan.
Here’s which NPC can turn you into a Prop in Season 8:
- Dusk west of Lazy Lake
Activate a Rift
You can still purchase Rifts from NPCs in Fortnite Season 8 but so far, you can only purchase one from Dark Jonesy. For 245 Gold, you’ll redeploy high in the air and can glide across the map.
In Fortnite Season 8, you can purchase Rifts from:
- Dark Jonesy in Steamy Stacks
Purchase Exotic weapons
NPCs in Fortnite also sell Exotic weapons that can give you a major advantage over your opponents. They don’t come cheap, costing as much as 500 Gold, but can dish out some serious damage.
