iOS and Mac Bonus V-Bucks Grant

Apple has blocked your ability to update Fortnite on iOS and Mac

For V-Bucks purchases on or prior to November 6, 2020, we are giving you V-Bucks equal to your current balance of unspent V-Bucks purchased on Apple platforms, so you can now spend them on any platform where you can play Fortnite. There’s no action needed on your part and no V-Bucks will be removed from your Fortnite account on any platform!

iOS Purchases: 

For iOS players: the bonus received equals your current balance of unspent V-Bucks purchased through the App Store.

Mac Purchases:

Anyone that's previously played Fortnite on Mac receives a bonus equal to your current balance of unspent V-Bucks purchased from Epic on Mac.

If you received an email about this, you can access them by logging into your Fortnite account on any supported platform.

Q. I didn’t receive any V-Bucks but I made purchases on iOS. 

  • We are granting V-Bucks to iOS players who have a balance of unspent V-Bucks purchased from the App Store. If you have purchased V-Bucks on iOS in the past and have spent them, you will not be receiving the bonus V-Bucks.

Q. Are you transferring the V-Bucks from my iOS balance?

  • No. The V-Bucks you currently have on iOS will remain. The V-Bucks in this bonus grant are extra!

Q. Can I use the bonus V-Bucks on another platform?

  • Yes! The bonus V-Bucks will be available to use on Playstation, Xbox, Switch, PC and Android too!

Q. How do I know if I am getting bonus V-Bucks?

  • Look out for a giftbox when you start Fortnite, announcing the grant. If you did not receive a giftbox before 11/9/2020, you were not eligible for the bonus V-Bucks. 

Q. My V-Bucks balance when I launch Fortnite on Mac or iOS is higher than the Bonus V-Bucks received, why?

  • The bonus V-Bucks are equal to the amount of V-Bucks that were purchased on Apple platforms. The amount you see in-game on one of these platforms may be higher as it also contains V-Bucks purchased on platforms other than iOS or Mac. For example: When you launch Fortnite on your iOS device you have 5,000 V-Bucks, but only 200 of those are unspent V-Bucks purchased on iOS. Your Bonus V-Bucks will be 200 and not 5,000
