Fortnite is known as one of the most well-known free-to-play games on the internet. It does not matter if you are playing on PC or console, everyone is able to download the client and get access to all of the Battle Royale mode of the game without paying a cent.
The thing that you do not get for free, though, is the choice of your character. a lot of new players of Fortnite are confused by the fact that their default skin is chosen by the game and wonder how they are able to change to the gender that they want.
In the game called Fortnite, there are two playable genders for most skins. Those are male and female. A lot of players want to choose what gender their character is, therefore this page covers the following topics about changing gender in Fortnite.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to change or choose what gender your character is whilst using the default skin. There are eight different kinds of default skin, and a random one of those is assigned to you every game. The main reason of why the developer of Fortnite named Epic Games have made it this way is to get people to spend money on the game so they are able to select themselves.
Some other sources say there are six default skins. It means that you are not guaranteed to have to look at the same character during every game and that you will get at least some variety. The bad news is that you have to choice over which one of those skins is selected or what gender you will play as. For the free players, all of them are not able to change anything about the looks of their players. That is a purposeful choice on the part of the developers.
On the other hand, it is possible to choose what gender your character is if you buy v bucks. In the Item Shop, you will be able to find two versions of the featured skins, a male and a female version. This one is where you can choose the gender of your character, by simply purchasing the gender that you want to play. Once you have selected the skin, you can just go to the section of the menu named “Locker”. In Locker, you will get to switch over to any skin that you have purchased with a click of the button. You are also allowed to change a few other cosmetic options within the menu. Please keep in mind that buying one of the genders of a specific skin does not grant you the ability to play both genders of the skin. If you want to do that, you would have to purchase the other gender as well, so essentially buying two skins. For instance, the Whiteout and the Overtaker skins that are part of the same set, with the similar appearance, but are a male and a female version.
