How does Gifting work in Battle Royale?

Gifting in Fortnite: Battle Royale allows you to purchase in-game content with V-Bucks and send it to your friends!

Before you can send a gift:

There are some things you can't gift: 

  • Battle Passes (only via real-money transactions)
  • V-Bucks
  • Offers that use real money
  • Items that are not currently in the Item Shop
  • Items that are already in your Locker
  • Some store items, including Battle Pass Tier Bundles

Gifting is exclusive to the following platforms: 

  • Android
  • PC
  • PlayStation
  • Switch
  • Xbox One

All gifts are non-refundable.

Please be sure you give the gift to the right friend!


“I tried to send a gift, but I’m getting an error.”

There are a few reasons sending a gift may result in an error:

  • You can send up to 5 gifts per day. If you exceed the total amount of gifts you can send within 24 hours, sending a gift will fail. You’ll need to wait 24 hours before you can send more gifts.
  • If you’re trying to gift an item to a player who already has that item, gifting will fail.
  • If you’ve been friends with a player for less than 2 days, gifting will fail. Both the sender and the receiver(s) of gifts must be EPIC friends for at least three days prior to sending/receiving gifts.
