Fortnite is allowing players to refund three purchased cosmetic items per year using the improved Return Request feature.

Have you ever accidentally purchased an item from Fortnite’s item shop? Or maybe you purchased a skin or a wrap and it just didn’t look quite the way you hoped it would.

Well, now you can refund items using Return Request tickets! This has been a feature in Fortnite for a while, but players were limited to three refunds per account. Once a Return Request was used, you could not get it back.

However, that’s been changed with the latest update. Players will start will three new Return Requests. Players will then earn back a Return Request exactly 365 days after the most recent use. This means players can earn back one Return Request per year.

How to refund items in Fortnite

You can refund an item you purchased using V-Bucks within 30 days of its purchase. This means that if you bought an item more than a month ago, you can’t refund it. Here are the steps to request a refund in Fortnite.

  • From the lobby, open the Settings
  • Navigate to the Account and Privacy tab (player silhouette icon)
  • Click on Submit a Request
  • Select an item from the list provided
    • Only the items purchased in the last 30 days will appear
  • Click Submit Return Request
  • Select Yes
  • V-Bucks will be credited to your account

What items can I refund in Fortnite?

You can ONLY return items purchased using V-Bucks. That’s because Fortnite will refund players the exact number of V-Bucks they spent on the item they’re refunding. Here is a list of items you can refund if purchased from the Items Shop

  • Outfits
  • Back Blings
  • Harvesting Tools
  • Gliders
  • Contrails
  • Loading Screens
  • Emotes

What items you cannot refund

You cannot refund Real money bundles and Battle Pass items. That’s because Fortnite does not have a way to easily refund real money. It’s also difficult for Fortnite to refund items that fluctuate in value. Here is a list of things you can’t refund in Fortnite.

  • Purchased V-Bucks
  • Seasonal Battle Pass
  • Battle Pass Tiers
  • Starter Pack
  • Real-Money Bundles

Fall Guys is one of the most popular Battle Royale games that went viral ever since its release due to its healthy gameplay and exciting obstacle based games. Its collaboration with Fortnite has been teased for over a year and leaks show that it is finally arriving in the form of an in-game event with challenges that offer rewards to those who participate in it.

The collaborations between Fortnite and several video games always keeps the player base at their feet as they wait for their favorite characters to enter the loop. Moreover these collabs result in either in-game items, challenges or Item Shop cosmetics that loopers do not hesitate spending their precious V-Bucks on.

From Street Fighter to God of War, players have seen characters from various franchises arrive to the Gaming Legends series of cosmetics to the Item Shop. Most recently, players saw a brief collab with Among Us cosmetics, as the game finally arrived to Epic Games store a while ago.

However, the collab only consisted of a Back Bling and an emote which was rather disappointing but fans still bought the cosmetics from the Item Shop, given the game’s popularity. Now that Fall Guys is free on Epic Games Store, the collab between the two is arriving in Fortnite with certain challenges that rewards the participants with in-game cosmetics.

How to complete Fall Guys Crown Clash Challenges in Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite x Fall Guys collab is set to enter Fortnite on June 29 in-game with the release of Crown Clash Challenges. The challenges will go on until July 11 which means players will have less than a couple weeks to complete all the challenges and claim their rewards.

Players would need to complete these challenges in 5 rounds. This might suggest that these challenges would take place in a Creative map rather than the traditional Battle Royale approach.

Loopers who complete these in Fortnite will get 5 free cosmetics right in their locker which will only be exclusive to those completing all the challenges. Moreover, if players have their Epic ID linked to their Fall Guys account, they will receive 3500 Kudos after the completion of these challenges, in their Fall Guys account to spend in-game.

However, the challenges also seem to affect the points one could get in Rocket League, as per the leaks. Although, this might be a possibility as Rocket League cars were spotted in a leak to appear soon in the Fortnite island back again.

Fortnite Season 3 has introduced players to several new features, a new UI and a more colorful island to drop in. One of these most awaited and heavily rumored features was Social Tags. Now that it’s finally here, players are loving how it adds their in-game personality to their profile.

Loopers are enjoying every bit about the latest Chapter 3 Season 3. From ballers, exciting new POIs, the brand new Reality Sapling loot system, all the new additions accompany one another in a perfect manner.

However, the user interface options in Fortnite have stayed stagnant for a long period of time and required a major overhaul with the evolution of the gameplay. With the addition of Explore and game playlists options earlier this year, Epic showed its player base about the potential of what Fortnite can be.

In addition to all these features, something felt missing that allowed players to connect with other active players who have similar interests and the way they play Fortnite. Enter Social Tags which were added in the most recent v21.10 update. Here’s what they are and how you can use them.

Use Social Tags to define your choices and find similar players in Fortnite

Social Tags in Fortnite are basically name tags you can add to your Fortnite profile on the sidebar section. These tags signify how you play Fortnite and you can get recommendations on the Explore Menu of similar experiences.

If you enjoy a certain Battle Royale or Creative mode, you can add a tag for it. One player at max, can add 3 tags to their profile. It could be a mix of Creative, Battle Royale which bbasically have gameplay modes and Miscellaneous which has more options like Chill, Quests, Mic On etc.

To apply Social Tags to your profile, do the following steps:

  1. Click on your profile icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Select +Add Tag option on your profile.
  3. Add social tags from the list available there.
  4. Save and confirm the selected tags. (Max 3)

Once assigned, they will show up on your profile and would tell others how you choose to play Fortnite. Furthermore, you can head to Looking For A Party option on the left sidebar, right above settings to search for random players who play Fortnite the way you do.

It will then show a list of players who are active currently in-game and are in the lobby with how many players. Moreover, you can send them a party invite or a request to join your party. You can also choose to turn off this option.

This feature promotes healthy connectivity between players who play Fortnite in a similar way and helps prevent toxicity between Casuals and Sweats in the game. Additionally, it creates a healthy divide between the two communities if one enjoys grinding Arenas while others purely enjoy Public matches.

How to jump off of a diving board in Fortnite Season 3

A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 3 challenge requires players to jump off of a diving board and here’s a quick guide to completing it.

Fortnite Dive Board

Fortnite players must search for a diving board and jump off of it this week. This will complete one of the latest Week 3 challenges and provide them with 15,000 XP.

Quests and challenges have always been the most reliable source of XP for Fortnite players. The developers release three Daily Quests every day and seven Weekly Quests every week.

Weekly quests for Week 3 of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 have arrived, and here’s a guide to completing the one based on jumping off a diving board.

Where to find Diving Boards in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

To complete the Weekly quest, players first need to find one Diving Board. It is located near Rocky Reels and the exact location is marked (blue marker) in the image below:

The diving board is placed on the top of a massive rock in the desert region south of Rocky Reels. It basically gives players a small push and they can dive into the river flowing underneath.

The quest requires you to jump off of a diving board three times, and they don’t need to be unique. This means that the challenge can be completed by jumping off of the aforementioned board repeatedly.

How to reach the diving board in Fortnite Season 3

Another thing to note is the accessibility of the diving board. There’s no way to reach the top of the massive boulder in Zero Build modes owing to the lack of ziplines. Jumping while sprinting might help but it is better to take on this challenge in modes with building enabled.

Obviously, players can directly land at the diving board near Rocky Reels in Zero Build modes but this will only allow them to jump off of it once.

All in all, completing the weekly challenge will grant players 15,000 XP. Seven new quests have been added this week and there will be an additional bonus for completing them. This implies that the total XP output will be over 200,000 which is equivalent to almost three levels in the Battle Pass.
