The Battle Pass is every Fortnite players favorite way to earn Free V Bucks and Free Fortnite Skins. However, the initial investment can scare some Fortnite players off of diving into the wonderful world of owning the Battle Pass.
Thankfully, if you're a great friend, we have the way to get all your gaming buddies to own the Battle Pass in Fortnite. Everyone can enjoy the Battle Pass if you learn how to gift the battle pass in Fortnite chapter 3 season 3.
How To Give Your Fortnite Friends the Battle Pass
The best way to get everyone in your squad rocking some baller in game cosmetics is by gifting the current Fortnite season Battle Pass.
Thankfully, Epic Games has made gifting the Fortnite Season Battle Pass easy and accessible, regardless of the Fortnite season.
Here is how to gift the battle pass in Fortnite:
- Open Fortnite Battle Royale and select the Battle Pass Tab.
- If you already have the current season's Battle Pass you can select the Gift The Battle Pass button. If you don't own the current season's Battle Pass select the Get The Battle Pass button and you'll see Gift The Battle Pass in the bottom right corner.
- Search for your Fortnite friend to gift it to on the left side of the screen. Check to make sure they don't own the item already with the item owned counter under their name.
- After selecting their name from the social tab click Continue then enter your payment details and confirm the transaction.
If you followed the above steps your Fortnite friend will have a gift when they log into Fortnite next. They'll be able to open the gift, which will have the current season's Battle Pass inside!

Can I Gift the Battle Pass With V Bucks?
Unfortunately, you can not gift Battle Passes with V Bucks in Fortnite. You can only gift the Fortnite Battle Pass using money transactions.
Epic Games doesn't allow players to gift the Battle Passes with V Bucks, because they wouldn't make any money. Since you earn more V Bucks in the Battle Passes than you spend on them, if you could gift Battle Passes only one player would ever need to purchase the Battle Pass, then all their friends could get it for free.
How Much Does Gifting the Fortnite Battle Pass Cost?
The Fortnite Battle Passes costs the same to send in a gift box as it does to purchase for yourself from Epic Games, the equivalent of 950 V Bucks.
Since you can't gift Battle Passes using V Bucks, the cost of gifting Battle Passes is roughly equal to the amount it would cost to purchase 950 V Bucks.
Does the Battle Pass Always Cost the Same Amount?
On top of the Battle Passes costing the same to send or purchase for yourself, the Battle Passes also cost the same amount of V Bucks every Fortnite Chapter and season. Meaning the future new season Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 Battle Pass will cost the same as the one from Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, and that Battle Pass costed the same as last season, and that Battle Pass costed the same as the Battle Pass from OG Fortnite season's like Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 5.
Speaking of OG Fortnite season's, check out. Fortnite Skins Only OG Players Own for a glimpse into some past season Battle Pass skins that dominated Battle Royale.
We love the consistent pricing Epic Games utilizes on the Battle Passes across Fortnite Chapters because it allows players to budget enough V Bucks to always be able to purchase the next Season's new Battle Passes.
