It has been known that Epic Games is making huge amounts of money from in-game purchases in Fortnite, and it is also no secret that the purchases are not exactly cheap. Nevertheless, there are times when you may accidentally purchase something you did not want, or you just get a serious case of remorse of buyer.
Epic Games now offers a refund system in the game called Fortnite so you are able to get your V-Bucks back, but there are a few of big caveats. The first thing is that only purchases from the last 30 days are eligible. The second thing is that you only get three lifetime requests so please use them wisely.
Aside from that, it is also not that obvious how you go about requesting refunds. Apparently, the location for the refund request option will be the same on Xbox, Play Station 4 or PC, but the controls are here specific to the Xbox One.
