Fornite is by far one of the most popular video games out there. Even if you haven’t heard of it, I bet (and I’m not even a player), you’ve probably seen one of the many dances on your social media feed.
While Mario Kart is more of my speed (yell at Princess Peach), there is no denying that Fornite is suitable for all ages. The game is free to play, but users must use (or purchase) in-game V-Bucks to gain customization options.
Curious about V-Bucks? We found the information we needed.
What are V-Bucks?
V-Bucks is an in-game currency that can be used for Fornite. It is an abbreviation for Vinderbucks or Vindestech Bucks.
How to send gifts in Fortnite
Giving Fortnite gifts is a great way to show your appreciation to someone, celebrate their birthday or other holidays, and make the game even more social. Fortunately, finding your way is pretty easy too if you know how.
Players wishing to send a gift must go to the Item Store. Epic Games offers a variety of cosmetic items that you can purchase daily. Pick one of these items and make sure you have the right amount of V-Bucks. If not, you will need to add more to your account first.
If you would like to purchase an item, select the “Buy as a gift” option and you can send it to someone else. In the friends list, select the friend you want to send them to, select the desired wrapping paper for the gift box and click Send. Your friend will receive a notification that they have an unlockable gift as soon as they log into Fortnite.
How to Gift V-Bucks in Fortnite
While you cannot gift V-Bucks directly to another player, there are several ways to fix Fortnite: buy them a gift card for their platform of choice or a bundle with specific content.
Buy a gift card for your chosen platform
The first thing to do is determine which platform your player usually plays on. Since there is no Fortnite gift card, you need to purchase a platform-specific card. For example:
- PlayStation: If you are playing on a PlayStation, a PlayStation Store Gift Card is sufficient.
- Xbox: Xbox players may require an Xbox Gift Card.
- Switch: Players need a Nintendo eShop Gift Card to switch.
- PC: There is no dedicated store for PC gamers to buy Fornite items. However, you can get them a regular prepaid visa for in-game currency.
- Android: It’s the same with Android players. Since the game uses Epic’s own launcher (like the PC version), a prepaid debit card is the best option.
- iOS: Since Fortnite is available on the iOS App Store, an iTunes Gift Card is the best answer.
The player must return the gift or debit card to his system himself. He can then use that money to buy something from these digital stores. However, they can buy another game, DLC, or Fortnite V-Bucks. The reason a player uses a gift card depends on them – you can’t force them to use it for V-Bucks.
