Preliminary information

Prima di enter the dettaglio della procedura su how to gift skins on Fortnite PS4, I think it might interest you to understand what are the cosmetic items that 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 re-insert this feature from the game for testing purposes, 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 Fortnite and press the button R1 of the controller until you get to the board STORE ITEMS. Once this is done, press 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 feature has been temporarily disabled by Epic Games.

The main requirement for being able to gift a skin to another person is that you must have made friends with the latter for at least 48 hours, no matter if via PlayStation Network or Epic Games account. For more details, I recommend you take a look at my guide on how to add friends in Fortnite. In addition to this, the limit of gifts that can be given in the course of 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 present in the Shop Objects.

We are therefore talking about cosmetic items that can only be purchased through V-Buck, which is the virtual currency of Fortnite. The latter can be obtained for free through the Battle Pass or for a fee through microtransactions. The prices are 9,99 euros for 1.000 V-Buck, 24,99 euros for 2.500 V-Buck, 39,99 euros for 4.000 V-Buck and 99,99 euros for 10.000 V-Buck.

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