Can you gift V-Bucks in Fortnite

V-Bucks are the in-game currency Fortnite players buy with real money and use to purchase Item Shop cosmetics. But one of the things that new players to the game often ask is, can you gift V-Bucks in Fortnite? Here’s the answer to that.

Fortnite is one of the highest-grossing games in the battle royale genre at present. The developers make a fortune from sales of its in-game currency called V-Bucks.

V-Bucks in Fortnite have been around since Chapter 1 when players had to buy them from the shop or Epic Games Store to get in-game cosmetics. Furthermore, there are various ways you can get these V-Bucks to buy your favorite cosmetic items.

However, a question that has often come up in conversations with newer players is if you can gift these V-Bucks or not. Here’s the answer to that.

Can you gift V-Bucks in Fortnite?

No, you cannot gift V-Bucks in Fortnite to another player. Epic only allows the sale of V-Bucks through several channels where you can purchase the in-game currency.

Moreover, Epic has also introduced V-Bucks cards that players can purchase from a local retailer near them who sells them or from big box stores like Walmart, Target, etc. These cards contain a redeemable code that players can redeem on Epic’s official site.

Another way you can get V-Bucks is from the in-game shop under the V-Bucks tab. The quantity and the price of V-Bucks that you will be able to see in the game right now are listed below:

  • 1000 V-Bucks – $7.99
  • 2800 V-Bucks – $19.99
  • 5000 V-Bucks – $31.99
  • 13500 V-Bucks – $79.99

If you still wish to gift a friend something in Fortnite, you can still gift them in-game cosmetics from the Item Shop using the gifting menu. Make sure you have the required V-Bucks in your account to make the purchase or gift the cosmetic item you desire to.

Insufficient V-Bucks will redirect you to the V-Bucks tab where it’ll ask you to purchase V-Bucks according to your convenience. Although, you can also get V-Bucks from the Battle Pass, Fortnite Crew, and as bonus rewards from several cosmetic packs in the item shop.


Epic highly encourages players to buy V-Bucks from its official store. Purchasing V-Bucks from a third-party seller or an unauthorized dealer can result in a ban or a revoke of the amount from your account.
