In Fortnite there are lots of “skins” or costumes that you can get for your characters. Each suit makes you look special and the game is not so monotonous, but to get these skins, you must spend bucks or V coins that are normally paid with real money, but in this article we’ll show you how to get free suits without paying too much.

Special events by country or community
On many occasions Epic Games tends to promote certain countries and give a boost to these communities with the launch of free skins.
Normally you’ll find it as soon as you enter the game, although they usually notify you when a new skin comes out in some region, so in this way, you can get a free skin without paying anything.
This point is usually uncommon but it is useful to keep it in mind. The only bad thing is that all players will have the same skins and you won’t be able to distinguish between enemies.
The V-bucks or V-currency is the currency used in the game. We can exchange them for any type of item. To obtain them, we must use real money. We only have to enter the platform and go to the Bucks section in the menu. Once there, we must select the amount we want to obtain, these are classified according to a certain amount.
For example, we can pay a pack of 1000 Bucks that would be equivalent to almost 8 euros. When we click on buy we will see the payment options we have. They may vary depending on the country, but we can do it by bank transfer, giftcards, virtual currency, among others. Every time we buy more than 2500 V-Bucks we will earn additional coins.
Besides, we can earn these currencies by connecting to the game on a daily basis and completing all the tasks of the day.
On Twitch Prime promotions
The Prime service of the Twitch platform also generates new rewards for Fortnite players. This is a partnership between Twitch and Epic Games that will allow us to have a pack of rewards at no additional cost. To access these benefits it is necessary that we have a Prime account. To get it, we must subscribe to Amazon Prime.
Luckily, the 30-day trial of that program will allow us to get free rewards. Once we have our account activated, we link it to the Epic Games page. By doing this, we will start receiving notifications about this link. Among them, the available pack of skins.
Another of the most used methods to get skins in Fortnite is by acquiring battle passes. By using them, they can help us access exclusive challenges, while obtaining more varied rewards per level.
With these we can also level up faster, unlike those who do not have a pass, so it will take a little longer to overcome the challenges.
We will buy them in the same way we buy Bucks. That is, we must have coins available to buy the pass. We will go to the store section and exchange it for 950 V-Bucks, click on the buy button and we can have our pass and the possibility of climbing quickly through 25 levels.
Generally to provide the game in their consoles, what Sony does is launch reward packages with skins, so if you are a PS4 player and have PS Plus, there you can receive many rewards in the form of suits.
Remember that if you have the account on PC you can also synchronize it with Playstation and take the rewards on your PC in the same way.
As we have commented before with the packages that include by communities, it is possible that in your country they do not deliver a skin in Playstation Plus, many times it is a matter of luck.
