Fortnite offers a lot of fun features that contribute to the overall experience of the game. In addition to the most obvious – to build and try to eliminate their enemy – you also have the opportunity to change the appearance of your character via so-called skins. We therefore wanted to tell you more about how to buy skins in Fortnite and how you can get skins for free.
WHAT ARE SKINS?
Before we talk more about how to access new skins, we thought we’d start by figuring out what skins really are. In short, it is cosmetic products that allow you to change the look of your Fortnite character.
In the vast majority of cases, skins include various clothing and accessories such as backpacks. However, it can also be about different gliders, axes and dance steps.
HOW TO BUY NEW SKINS IN FORTNITE
One of the easiest ways to obtain skins is to buy them. To do this, you need to navigate to the game store, called “Item Shop”, in which you can buy skins. Purchases are made with Fortnite’s own currency, V-Bucks.
To access V-Bucks, you must deposit real money, or another player can donate their V-Bucks to you. 1000 V-Bucks usually cost about 130 Swedish kronor.
To buy skina, you navigate to Fortnites Item Shop, where you can navigate between the different options available. Once you have found a skin that you like and want to buy, simply click the buy button.
In some cases, skins may only be available in so-called Battle Passes. Like skins, a Battle Pass must be purchased for real money. Once you have done this, however, you can complete various missions and be rewarded with free skins.
SO YOU CAN ACCESS FREE SKINS
If you do not want to buy new clothes for your character, you can in some cases access them completely free of charge. We have previously mentioned one of those options – that another player donates his V-Bucks or buys skins for you.
Another option is, as previously mentioned, to buy a Battle Pass and solve the various missions that are available. However, even this presupposes that you have to spend real money.
Last but not least, you can of course settle for the skins that are available as standard. Namely, there are free equipments that are completely free to use.
We hope you now have a better idea of what skins are, how to go about buying them and how to access them completely free of charge.
