How-to gift Fortnite skins
Here’s where you can get into the speculation about how this will all work. This is based upon leaks. The1JarenFollow us on Twitter.
As you can see, the additional button allows you to “Buy as A Gift” when you are trying to buy a new skin. This is the most exciting screenshot. It’s right after clicking the button.
There are many things to consider. You can only gift up to four people at once (including yourself). You will be limited to receiving a maximum of four gifts at a time. After that, you must wait at least nine days to receive more. You will also see some difficult to read text below the menu. This is the remaining gift limit. It states that you can only give 5 skins per week. This is per recipient or per skin. After you have selected the recipient you wish to gift the item, you will be able to go to the Gift Wrap menu.
This is where you can personalize the gift and leave a note or message for your friend. You can’t give gifts back to yourself. You can still return gifts that you have given to others, but this doesn’t mean you cannot. If you are feeling guilty about a gift, you may be able to return some V-Bucks.
