In today’s tutorial, in fact, I will explain how to give V-Buck on Fortnite by acting on all the platforms on which the game is available: from PlayStation 4 to Xbox One, via Nintendo Switch, PC, smartphone and tablet. All this, of course, passing through native features from the game and without using those hacks of sorts that are often advertised online (by the way, I invite you to stay away from them, as they are poorly seen by the developers and the game community).
So, can you know what are you still doing there impaled? Do you want to give V-Buck to your friend? I would say yes, so take some free time all for yourself, read and practice the quick instructions below. I assure you that in doing so, you will be able to make a very welcome gift to every Fortnite fan. Having said that, there is nothing else for me to do, except to wish you a good read!
Before going into the details of the procedure on how to give V-Buck on Fortnite , I think it may be useful to know more about the virtual currency of the Epic Games title and what it allows you to buy.
Well, the V-Bucks can be used to purchase aesthetic and consumable items through the Fortnite Object Store . Many players use this virtual currency to purchase skins , special costumes that change the character’s appearance or weapons. However, there are also emotes , which are dances and movements that can be used to communicate with other players who do not have a microphone during the game.
Another frequent use of V-Bucks is related to the purchase of the Battle Pass (950 V-Buck) or the Battle Bundle (2,800 V-Buck). The latter allow you to access better rewards as you continue the game, making your user account level up faster. Additionally, some rewards, such as several high rarity skins, can only be obtained by purchasing these upgrades.
I also remind you that the V-Bucks have a common budget as regards the free PVP, Battle Royale , and the PVE, Save the world , which however is paid: its cost is € 39.99, by purchasing the Standard Founder Package, or at € 59.99, opting to purchase the Deluxe Founder Package.
For more information on V-Bucks and how to use them, I recommend you take a look at my guides on how to get V-Bucks on Fortnite and how to shop on Fortnite on PS4 .
After explaining what the V-Bucks are for, I would say that you are ready to give them to your friends. There is no in-game feature that allows you to pass the virtual coins in your account to another profile, but you can still buy gift cards online or in major electronics stores and allow your friends to get V-Buck in this way.
Fortnite is in fact available on many platforms and almost all of them allow you to buy V-Buck through the residual credit present in the wallet of your account . This means that, by purchasing a gift card, your friend will be able to redeem the code on his device and obtain the number of V-Bucks associated with the value of the gift card.
If you don’t know, a gift card is nothing more than a card containing a promotional code to be redeemed on the PlayStation Store (Playstation 4), Xbox Store (Xbox One), Nintendo eShop (Nintendo Switch), Play Store (Android devices) and iTunes (iPhone and iPad). Unfortunately, there are no gift cards for PC. Gift cards have different denominations: for example, for PlayStation 4 the most popular codes in Italy are those of 10 euros, 20 euros and 50 euros, while for iTunes gift cards are from 15 euros, 25 euros, 50 euros and 100 euros .
You just have to buy a gift card for the platform with which your friend is used to play and have it delivered or give him the code. Usually, there are also instructions on the card to redeem the gift card, but generally you only need to access the platform store , look for the Redeem code item and enter the alphanumeric characters shown on the gift card.
To give you a concrete example, on PlayStation 4 just open the PlayStation Store (shopping bag icon), scroll the side menu from the next screen and press the X button on the controller on the item Redeem codes . After that, you just have to type the code 12-digit promotional and press the button Continue , to redeem the gift card.
Once this is done, your friend will simply have to start Fortnite , go to the Shop and purchase the number of V-Bucks associated with the value of the gift card. I remind you that usually, but these values may vary according to the time of year and the platform, the prices are as follows: 9.99 euros for 100 V-Buck, 24.99 euros for 2,500 V-Buck, 39.99 euro for 4,000 V-Buck and 99,99 euro for 10,000 V-Buck.
If your friend can’t understand how to redeem the promotional card, invite them to consult my guides on how to redeem codes on PS4 and on how to use the iTunes cards and official Microsoft guidelines to redeem Xbox One codes , Nintendo to register codes for Switch and those of Google to redeem the codes on the Play Store .
