Why don't all of my V-Bucks transfer across platforms?

V-Bucks purchased on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation are only available on the platform they are purchased on. V-Bucks purchased on the Epic Games Store will be available on all platforms except PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.

This means your V-Buck balance may change depending on what platform you’re on. Examples are below:

  • Example 1: 1000 V-Bucks purchased on PC.
    • PC will display 1000 V-Bucks available.
    • PlayStation will display 0 V-Bucks available.
  • Example 2: 1000 V-Bucks purchased on PlayStation.
    • PC will display 0 V-Bucks available.
    • PlayStation will display 1000 V-Bucks available.
  • Example 3: 1000 V-Bucks purchased on Mobile. 500 V-Bucks earned from playing Save the World or unlocking Battle Pass tiers.
    • Mobile will display 1500 V-Bucks available.
    • PlayStation will display 500 V-Bucks available.

The restrictions outlined above apply to V-Bucks only.  Any content purchased with your V-Bucks will be available across platforms.  For specific details please visit the Official Fortnite FAQ.
