More than three years after its release, Fortnite remains one of the most talked about games around. At this point, calling Fortnite a phenomenon would be something of an understatement. Fortnite has become a gaming staple, and it only figures to remain ridiculously popular for years to come. If you have kids on your holiday shopping list, we imagine that at least one of them is a big Fortnite fan.
Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play game, so all you need to start playing is a console, PC, or smartphone--though recent legal battles between Apple/Google and Epic Games have threatened Fortnite's playability on mobile devices. But even though the battle royale game is ostensibly free, there are plenty of Fortnite gifts that are sure to make fans happy this holiday season. From safe bets like in-game currency to action figures and Funko Pops to gaming chairs and board games, our Fortnite gift guide covers a lot of ground to help you pick out the best gift possible.
For more gift ideas, take a look at our holiday gift guide hub, where you'll find roundups dedicated to Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox, and much more. On the entertainment front, we have gift guides focused on popular franchises such as Marvel and Star Wars as well as anime.
Originally released in Europe in October, the Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat Bundle just arrived in the US on Cyber Monday. The console has Fortnite-themed Joy-Con as well as a specially designed back panel and dock. Inside the box you'll also find codes to unlock three outfits, three Back Blings, and 2,000 V-Bucks.
The easiest and best Fortnite gift you can buy is in-game currency. Fortnite V-Bucks can be spent on Battle Passes and cosmetics. Anyone who is a dedicated Fortnite player has probably spent some cash on the free-to-play game. V-Bucks are compatible with every platform, so you can't go wrong here.
As Fortnite is free-to-play, it may seem odd that there are retail editions of the game, but they serve a purpose for dedicated fans. Fortnite: The Last Laugh is the latest bundle, and it releases November 17 for all major consoles. Though you get a standard game box, it doesn't come with a disc. Instead, it includes a code that unlocks 1,000 V-Bucks and a bundle of in-game Joker-themed cosmetics, including an outfit back bling, multiple harvesting tools, and much more. Fortnite fans who love Batman will certainly appreciate this bundle.
