Battle Stars are used to purchase items in the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 Battle Pass, but some players are understandably confused by this new system. The Battle Pass in Fortnite usually grants players a new reward at each level, but the Season 7 Battle Pass changes things by giving players more choices as they level up. Battle Stars is a new currency that can be used to get Battle Pass rewards, but some items cannot be purchased directly even if you have enough Stars.
Here’s everything you need to know about Battle Stars for the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass.
Battle Stars are earned every time you level up in Fortnite Season 7. If you level up during the season, you will receive five Battle Stars as a reward. You can use Battle Stars to purchase rewards from the Battle Pass menu, but you can only receive items from sites that you have unlocked.
You can unlock new pages by moving up levels. Usually a new page is unlocked every 10 levels, so you unlock a new page at level 10, 20, etc. You can also unlock new pages by buying rewards. For example, to unlock Side 2 you only need to unlock three rewards, so you can buy the cheapest rewards from Side 1 and unlock Side 2 before reaching the required level. This method allows players freedom when it comes to rewards. No need to grind for a skin or item that you don’t want.
However, if you want the skin from a specific page, you’ll need to unlock everything else on the page first. For example, Rick Sanchez’s skin is on page 10 of the Battle Pass. Every big ticket item on every page has a requirement that forces you to buy everything else on the Battle Stars page first before you can get it. That said, if you want the skin on a specific page, you’ll need to spend your Battle Stars to unlock all sprays, banners, emotes, and other cosmetics before you can be allowed to purchase the skin. You’ll also have to spend Battle Stars on the skin, and most of them cost nine stars.
There are plenty of other rewards coming during Fortnite Season 7, however, so you may want to save your Battle Stars for a later date. Superman comes to the game at some point during the season, and while he is likely to be behind a number of challenges like previous secret skins, you may also have to spend some Battle Stars to get him. Customizing Kymera also requires Battle Stars. So you have to save up if you want to unlock the best parts for this unique skin. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is set to last through mid-September, however, so you’ll have more than enough time to start saving.
Fortnite is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
