With Fortnite update 6.31 Epic Games is finally going to let players gift things to each other but only for a limited time.
Lasting only one week after the update players will be able to go to the Item Shop and purchase cosmetic items that they can then gift to a friend. This feature will be available for all platforms except for iOS Apple devices as it is prohibited there unfortunately.
During the gifting window players can purchase items from the gift story and select "Buy As A Gift" as an option. They can then send it to a friend with a little note and gift box. Items like emotes, outfits, and anything else in the Item Shop can be gifted.
There are some restrictions however. Two-step verification must be enabled and players must be friends with someone for at least 48 hours before being able to send them a gift. Gifting will be restricted to three times within a 24 hour period and gifts can only be what is currently available in the Item Shop.
The Gifting system is looking kind of restrictive for now, but it is a new feature. It also coincides nicely with the holiday season so there's that.
Epic is gearing up for a new season but in the meantime check out our Fortnite Beginner's Guide for all the best tips.
