Fortnite is a hugely popular video game, especially among the youth — but its in-game transactions can pose a problem for some parents, as seen in a TikTok video that has gone viral across social media platforms.
Dexerto says “Fortnite, like many other online gaming titles, boasts an impressive array of items that can be purchased within the game itself, such as skins, emotes, and, of course, in-game currency to buy said skins and emotes.V-Bucks act as Fortnite’s version of virtual money, and are necessary to buy what’s new in the game’s daily Item Shop (aside from a few bundles that can be bought with real-life currency).”
As such, it comes to a little surprise that kids may or may not ask for some money to splurge on some of the more popular Fortnite skin — but one tiny player ended up going the extra mile.
A short video from the TikTok user ‘ksmashshipper’ has gone viral online, which shows an angry and distraught mother in total shock that her son purchased 49,300 V-Bucks with her money.
“The biggest V-Buck bundle that can be bought in the Fortnite store is 13,500 V-Bucks, which is currently priced at $79. Give or take, this means that the child could have bought three of these bundles along with a smaller pack, or could have bought four and spent a few.”
Roughly, this comes out to around $300 or more, which is a hefty amount of money for almost about anyone.
“You spent $80 mad times, because how you got 49,000 V-Bucks?” she asked in a follow-up video before asking someone off-camera to take her card off the console.
“This definitely reminds us of that time North West ended up spending quite a bit on in-app purchases using her parents’ iPad, prompting Kanye West’s infamous Twitter tirade on the situation in 2015 — adding yet just another reminder for parents to make sure their technology is locked down.”
