When gifting first came to Fortnite it was only available for a limited time, but Epic Games have brought it back for another go around. Here's how you can gift cosmetics to your friends in Fortnite.
On April 3, Epic Games decided to enable gifting again in Fortnite, which means players will be able to spend their V-Bucks and purchase cosmetic items as gifts for their friends.
It's pretty easy to do this in the game but in case you might be in need of a refresher, we have you covered. There are a few steps you'll have to take before you can send gifts though.
Epic Games doesn't want hackers to take advantage of this system by hacking accounts and purchasing gifts with money that isn't there.
To combat this, Epic Games requires all players to have multi-factor authentication enabled on their Fortnite accounts. Here is some other information you should know about gifting as well.

Hop in and surprise a friend with a present.
Gifting cosmetics from the Item Shop in Fortnite is actually pretty simple. There are a couple of steps but here's all you have to do.
The next time your friend logs in there will receive a gift box holding the item you purchased for them.
Gifting is something the community has wanted for a while, so it's curious to see it not become a permanent feature in the game.
Perhaps this limited time only offer will last longer than it did last time, but Epic hasn't given a definitive end date for the gifting system yet.
