Fortnite: How to Change Gender (Male and Female)

How to Change Gender in Fortnite (Male and Female)

How to Change Gender in Fortnite.| When you play Fortnite for the first time, you will see that there are already characters assigned to you. Currently, this is how Fortnite works. Every time a player logs into the game or leaves a battle, they will be assigned a new character. Players can be assigned with male or female characters, and you cannot change them through the main lobby.

As is the case with most survival games that offer some player character customization based on the initial created character. But Fortnite takes things differently. This guide is for players who want to know how to change the gender (MALE and FEMALE) of their character to avoid character randomization.

How to Change Gender in Fortnite (Male and Female)

Keep in mind that changing gender in Fortnite to male or female only applies to players who haven’t purchased a battle pass or character skin of any kind from the store. Fortnite will randomly assign one of the eight default characters available to players. The character roster includes four male and four female characters. This means that there is a 50% chance of getting a different gender for each new game.

The only way to avoid randomizing characters in Fortnite is through the game’s character skins. Most new players to Fortnite who don’t have skins will think about going to the cash-store to buy them. Unfortunately, that’s wrong!

It is recommended for all players to get the Starter Pack, Battle Pass, or Battle Bundle first. Here’s how to get it:

1. Go to the main Fortnite menu and navigate to the section ‘locker‘. It is located adjacent to the item shop and has a small hanger icon.
2. Select the current character by tapping on it. Players will see a selection of available skin boards.
3. Here, players can change their character’s skin from the skins purchased or acquired throughout the game. Once the skin is selected, tap on the character and save!
4. Players who wish to purchase more skins for their characters can do so by heading to the Item shop.

Skins in Fortnite

Players who visit the Item shop will notice that the new character skin costs almost 800 V-Bucks, while the Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks. Although the price difference between the two is negligible. The difference in rewards and benefits is much higher for the Battle Pass in Fortnite, such as additional skins, emotes, XP boosts, and other new challenges.

So don’t buy new skins from scratch! The Battle Pass on 950 V-Bucks is a much smarter choice! There is also a Starter Pack available which costs only half of the Battle Pass, but doesn’t have many of the benefits attached to this skin.

Also, players who have purchased the Battle Pass once during any season can progress through its levels to earn more V-Bucks which can be saved for future purchases. You can use V-Bucks to buy the next Battle Pass instead of spending real money. Keep in mind, you need to enable the in-app purchase settings in Fortnite to access the Item Shop.

And that’s it! That’s all you need to know about how to change gender in Fortnite. I hope this guide helps you.
