Want to know what Fortnite gold bars are for? Introduced back in Season 5, gold bars are a form of in-game currency that can be used to purchase items and services from NPCs. These gold bars have carried over to Season 6 where there are even more things to buy, including new Fortnite weapons which were only recently introduced to the game.
There are numerous different Fortnite bounty NPCs scattered throughout the new map, and they need your help. During a Fortnite match, while you’re running around you may spot a speech bubble in the distance – this denotes an NPC, who you can speak to and obtain bounties from. Once you’ve selected your chosen bounty – you can only be assigned one at a time – head out to complete the task and earn yourself some gold bars.
You’ll also earn eight gold bars when you eliminate other players, and if you’re lucky, you might just find some bars laying around as you scour the land for loot. Read on to find out what you’ll be able to trade your stacks of gold for.
