How to Gift Skins in Apex Legends

Feeling generous? Here's how you can gift Skins in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends is a game based around teamwork and helping others out if you want to win. In keeping with that trend in this popular battle royale game, players can now gift each other items in Apex Legends. However, doing so will require players to complete a few different steps and meet a list of criteria before they can start sending their friends gifts. According to the Apex Legends blog, this feature comes to Apex Legends on November 1, 2022. Here is everything that you need to know on how to gift skins in Apex Legends.

How to Gift Skins in Apex Legends

To gift skins and cosmetics in Apex Legends, make sure that your account is in good standing, you have login verification turned on, and the person you’re gifting has been your friend for over 2 weeks. Then, go to the store, select Gift instead of the Purchase button, and select the friend from your friends list that you want to gift. As long as you have enough Apex Coins in your account, the gift should go through and end up in your friend’s inventory.

For a step-by-step guide, see below. 

Part 1: Apex Legends Gift-Giving Requirements

It may sound a bit strange, but players first need to become eligible to send gifts. This is to make sure accounts gifting items are legitimate. 

To become eligible to give gifts in Apex Legends, players must first ensure they meet the following:

  • Login Verification Turned On
  • Accounts must be level 10
  • Both players (gift giver and gift receiver) need to have been on each other’s friends list for 2 weeks
  • Both accounts must be in good standing
  • The person gifting must have enough Apex Coins to purchase the item
  • The person receiving the item must not already have it in their inventory

Only 5 gifts can be given per day in Apex Legends.

Part 2: Giving Gifts in Apex Legends

Once you are sure your account is eligible to give gifts, doing so only requires a few steps:

  1. Head to the store to find the item you wish to gift.
  2. Click on the Gift located next to the Purchase option.
  3. Select the friend from your friends list that you wish to gift.
  4. Finalize the purchase and click the Gift button.
  5. The gift will show up directly in your friend’s inventory with a notification about who sent them the gift.

Being able to gift items in Apex Legends is a great way to show friends and family that you are thinking about them – or just helping your squad look good with a new outfit.
