Just like most games, Fortnite has an official currency. The name of its official currency is V-Bucks. This one is clearly useful in the game. If you have many of them in your hand, you will be able to do a number of things, including purchasing cosmetics, outfits, a few emotes for characters, new characters, and the Battle Pass.
If you do not have V-Bucks, you can obtain them. There are several methods to get V-Bucks. These methods include purchasing the Battle Pass and purchasing the V-Bucks gift card. Talking about the last option, feel free to purchase the physic or the digital one. Regardless of the option, you will be able to get the code that can be used to redeem V-Bucks.
Feel free to redeem these codes on anything other than the Nintendo Switch. In the other words, there is no way for you to redeem these codes to get V-Bucks on the Nintendo Switch. So, what should you do to redeem these codes on the Nintendo Switch or to add V-Bucks to the Nintendo Switch?
For those who want to redeem these codes of the V-Bucks gift card on the Nintendo Switch or to add V-Bucks to the Nintendo Switch, it will be needed for you to do that on the official website of Epic Games through your browser. If you have no idea how to do that, check out the following guide:
- The first thing that you need to do is to go to the epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/vbuckscard.
- When you are on the page, choose Sign In then choose Yes to confirm that you already play Fortnite.
- Please skip this step in case you are already signed in.
- Then, choose Nintendo Switch.
