How to Gift V-Bucks in Fortnite
V-Bucks are the main currency that so many players desire in Fortnite. Players can earn them in a variety of ways, including purchasing them with real money or earning them through a season’s Battle Pass. Of course, players would have had to purchase the battle pass with V-Bucks to access tiers that reward V-Bucks.
Since virtually all cosmetic products from Fortnite are purchasable with V-Bucks, players naturally wondered if there were other ways to get them. Specifically, players are curious if a random friend or stranger could offer them V-Bucks by Fortnite. Maybe a streamer wants to gift V-Bucks to a loyal subscriber, or a friend wants to make sure their friend can buy any skin they want.
If you want to see if you can actually gift V-Bucks to another player in Fortnitecheck out the guide below.
Gift V-Bucks in Fortnite
Unfortunately for curious players, it is not possible to gift V-Bucks in-game to another player. Basically, players cannot take V-Bucks from their account and transfer them to another player’s account. Epic Games has made it clear that it does not want players to obtain in-game currency in this manner in the event of a scam.
Although you cannot gift V-Bucks in-game, you can gift them through other means. This avenue involves purchasing an actual gift card for a certain amount of V-Bucks. These gift cards can be found at most major retailers, such as Target, Wal-Mart, etc. Gift cards will be marked with the same icon they have in Fortniteas well as the number of V-Bucks the card contains.
If a player receives one of these gift cards, they can redeem the specific number of V-Bucks the card contains on their Fortnite Account. This will instantly add that many V-Bucks to the player’s account, allowing them to purchase cosmetics, the battle pass, and more.
Of course, these gift cards are only found outside of the game, so there is no real gift system related to gift cards. But it’s the only way to gift V-Bucks to another player. If players want to skip the V-Bucks spending process, they can always simply send a player a specific cosmetic from the Item Shop.
Players can simply purchase a cosmetic as a gift from the Item Shop and send it to someone on their friends list. Players will, however, need to be level two and have two-factor authentication enabled for this to work. Players also have a limit of five gifts per day. However, cosmetics purchased with real money and not V-Bucks cannot be gifted.
