Fortnite Skins

What are Fortnite Skins?

Fortnite skins are cosmetic items like the back bling and pickaxe which give your character a unique appearance. While these skins enhance a players' appearance, they do not offer any competitive advantage in-game.
Over the years, Epic Games has included a mix of original skins as well as those inspired by iconic personalities. For instance, creators like Ninja, musicians like Travis Scott, and athletes like Lebron James all have their own skins on Fortnite. Furthermore, skins are segregated into free skins and those that you can purchase using V-Bucks.

Free Fortnite Skins

While players will have to shell out V-Bucks for majority of the awesome skins Epic Games releases, there are a bunch of skins players can acquire simply from grinding the game.
Players can make a one-time purchase of the battle pass which will give them access to a skin at the end of every 10 tiers. There is also usually a breathtaking tier 100 skin and exclusive skin for those who make the purchase.
In addition to the battle pass, players can link their Epic and Twitch Prime accounts to have a chance at earning some free skins. An example of this is the 'Trailblazer' cosmetic Epic offered in 2020.
Lastly, players can earn free skins by showcasing their skills in tournaments. The highest-ranked teams in each region usually earn free skins along with other cosmetics at the end of the tournament.
Rare Fortnite Skins
Like other items in the game, some skins are rarer than others. This especially occurs in the case of older skins that Epic does not release frequently in the item shop.
Some of the rarest skins in the game include:
Cactus Jack
Marshmello
Red Knight
John Wick
Star-Lord
Galaxy Skin

Leaked Fortnite Skins

Fortnite data-miners like Hypex are always on the lookout for leaked skins. These can be identified based on changes made to the game's code. When skins are leaked, fans get a hint of what to expect from Epic Games and can save up their V-Bucks for the same.
Recently, Hypex has posted news about the ‘Free Guy’ skin making his way to the item shop and a new bundle called the ‘Minty Legends Pack’ containing revamped designs for fan-favorite skins like Oro, Aura, and the Dark Bomber.

Fortnite Codes For Skins

Skins can also be obtained via codes. This is most evident when Fortnite begins a collaboration with another major company. For example, when Fortnite and DC collaborated on the Fortnite x Batman: Zero Point comic series, each comic included a code for cosmetics that you could redeem in game. Some of the items included a Harley Quinn and armored Batman skin.
