A new Fortnite Starter Pack has launched to coincide with the latest season of the battle royale, and as has become standard now this bundle provides excellent value for money when increasing the funds available through your in-game account. Whether you want to follow the latest craze by adding a fresh emote to your locker, or you’re planning to invest in the current Battle Pass to secure extra rewards as you progress, it’s always handy to have some spare V-Bucks available in your wallet so you can pick up in-game purchases without spending any more of your real money.
As we’ve come to expect by now, Epic has revealed the latest Fortnite Starter Pack for Chapter 3 Season 3 over every format including mobile (where available), so all players can enjoy the benefits of the deal. This Fortnite Rogue Alias Pack will set you back just $3.99/£3.19 and includes the Min-joon outfit, The Alpha Cylinder back bling, Tactical Geoms harvesting tool, and most importantly 600 V-Bucks to spend on microtransactions in Fortnite. You can check out what these items look like below.
Fortnite Starter Pack – The Fortnite Rogue Alias Pack
Even if you don’t plan on equipping these new cosmetic items, this still represents a great value deal for in-game currency alone. There’s no set date for how long this Fortnite Starter Pack will be available – the previous bundles were usually on the store for length of their corresponding seasons – but it will be removed eventually, so if you’re considering a purchase then don’t wait too long before you commit.
I wasn’t just guessing with that V-Bucks efficiency talk – here’s how the math stacks up for each individual V-Bucks purchase Fortnite offers, taking into account total V-Bucks including “bonuses” for buying in bulk, and rounding to the nearest whole number:
- 13,500 V-Bucks for $79.99 is 169 V-Bucks per dollar
- 5,000 V-Bucks for $31.99 is 156 V-Bucks per dollar
- 2,800 V-Bucks for $19.99 is 140 V-Bucks per dollar
- 1,000 V-Bucks for $7.99 is 125 V-Bucks per dollar
- 600 V-Bucks for $3.99 is 150 V-Bucks per dollar
The ratios work out similarly for GBP and other currencies. As you can see, the Fortnite Rogue Alias Pack gives you the most V-Buck buying power of any option under the 5,000 purchase – which is quite an investment in in-game currency, since you could also use that same amount of cash to buy a whole new game. Or perhaps just an irresponsible amount of pie, if you prefer.
The Fortnite Rogue Alias Pack, on the other hand, is nestled comfortably in “impulse buy” territory even without the Min-joon outfit plus matching The Alpha Cylinder back bling and Tactical Geoms harvesting tool, though you can skydive into battle like a true ninja if you suit up in them.
Do note that the Fortnite Rogue Alias Pack can only be purchased once for each account, so it isn’t an endless wellspring of in-game currency. And if you’d also like to buy the Battle Pass without grinding for the free Fortnite V-Bucks you occasionally earn, you’ll still need to buy extra on top to reach the 950 V-Bucks asking price; in other words, if you’re starting with this Fortnite Starter Pack, it won’t actually save you any money on the Battle Pass. You can always use those extra V-Bucks to pick up more customisation items though, or put them towards buying the next Battle Pass when Fortnite Season 4 lands in September.
Fortnite PlayStation Plus Celebration Pack
Don’t forget, if you’re a PS5 or PS4 player and PS+ subscriber then you can also grab the latest Fortnite PlayStation Plus Celebration Pack (opens in new tab), which is free and includes the exclusive Blizzard Bomber outfit and Mountaineer’s Must-Haves back bling. Hey, it’s always nice to get a little bonus, right?
