Before going into detail about the procedure on how to give skins on Fortnite PS4, I think you may be interested in understanding what cosmetic items you can give and how to take advantage of this possibility.

Well, you must know that Epic Games decides to implement the possibility of giving skins to other players only in some periods. In fact, in the past the developers of Fortnite have decided several times to remove and reinsert this functionality from the game for testing reasons, so this could happen again and I invite you to check that it is still possible to give cosmetic items from PlayStation 4.

To do this, go to the main mode screen Battle Royale of Fortnite and press the button R1 the controller until you get to the card OBJECTS STORE. Once this is done, hit the button X of the pad above theany skin icon and look for the button BUY AS A GIFT. If the latter is absent, it means that the functionality has been temporarily disabled by Epic Games.

The main requirement to be able to give a skin to another person is that you must have been friends with the latter for at least 48 hours, it doesn’t matter if through PlayStation Network or Epic Games account. For more details, I recommend you take a look at my guide on how to add friends on Fortnite. In addition to this, the limit of gifts that can be made during the 24 hours is set at three. Also note the fact that all gifts are non-refundable and that the only skins that can be given are those in the Shop Objects.

We are therefore talking about cosmetic items that can only be purchased through V-Buck, or Fortnite’s virtual currency. The latter can be obtained for free through the Battle Pass or for a fee through microtransactions. Prices are € 9.99 for 1,000 V-Buck, € 24.99 for 2,500 V-Buck, € 39.99 for 4,000 V-Buck and € 99.99 for 10,000 V-Buck.

In case you don’t know how to pay on the PlayStation Store, you may also consider purchasing PlayStation Network Card, digital codes with a value from 5 to 50 euros that can be purchased both online and in the major electronics stores. For all the details of the case, I advise you to consult my guide on how to shoot on Fortnite PS4 come on how to get V-Buck on Fortnite.
