A major difference between PubG and Fortnite is the cosmetics and availability of character skins. While PubG users do enjoy a long list of outfits that get updated every month or so, it’s still far behind Fortnite. Fortnite has an enormous list of character skins that they update as soon as every day.
As a matter of fact, they are updating items in the shop at an all-time record rate this quarantine. After recording a 24-item update on May 2, we found 31 more items updated on the next day. That includes both the latest themed content and bringing back traditional outfits.
The makers have paid serious attention to these items. But it’s not just the outfit that marks the major difference between PubG and Fortnite. It’s how the players get to equip a whole new character with a new skin. You’re not just putting in an outfit on those old characters.
Moreover, you aren’t limited to 7 characters that never find an upgrade. If you talk about standalone characters, there are three in PubG launched recently. But Fortnite is a different beast altogether.
Despite the availability of so many skins, players find it hard to get some without investing money. Of course, you would want to have as much as you can as every update brings back some that attract you to the hilt. So is there a way you can get your favorite skin without paying hefty sums?
Can you get free skins on Fortnite?
While having the latest skin won’t boost up your performance, it will still make you feel good while playing. It’s difficult to not get envious with enemies wearing the latest skins while you still stick with your season 1 garb.
For starters, a Battle Pass is your license to a few legendary season exclusive skins. They are 100% latest and are released in the current season. You just have to gain XP and hit new tiers to grab special outfits for your new Battle Pass skin.
Now if we talk about the skins in the item shop, they are all paid. For a legendary skin, you would have to pay 2000 V-Coins while a 1500 V-Coins would suffice for an Epic item. Rare and Uncommon items are priced at lower rates. Here is the rate to buy V-Coins
- 1000 V-Buck- $9.99USD
- 2500 V-Bucks + 300 bonus- $24.99USD
- 6000 V-Bucks + 1500 bonus- $59.99USD
- 10,000 V-Bucks + 3500 bonus- $99.99USD
Now that ain’t a realistic price if you’re a student and depend on the pocket money. You are left wondering if there is a way you can get some skins for free. Yes, there are a few methods you can use and if you’re lucky, you might end up with free skin!
Ways of getting free skins
Participate in giveaways
Of course, the simplest and 100% working method but purely based on luck. Many of the popular streamers, especially the upcoming ones, organize giveaways on Youtube. Streamers like Mxtro organize regular giveaways. You just need to subscribe to their channel, join their creator code, and comment on your favorite skin to see if you’re lucky.
The Feedback Glitch
Now the second way is through making use of a glitch in the feedback option. First thing you should know that it works 100%, but you shouldn’t risk your original account. Fortnite is working on the Glitch and if they find you purchasing skins through it, it might ban you. Some players have reported this thing.
So, don’t blame me if your account gets banned, I’ve already told you the risk. Now go to the Report Feedback tab in your new ID. Type Redeem.<the name of your favorite skin>.skin
Now, this may not work instantly, you would have to do it multiple times. Then write Admin.redeem and click on the Bug tick mark option and you’re done.
Once you receive the confirmation message, the skin should be here in a week or even a day if you’re lucky. But if it doesn’t, the glitch may not be working. Try again with another ID.
