Skins are a huge part of Fortnite and one of the most common ways to get them is by buying them with V-Bucks.
Not everyone can afford to buy new skins all the time, which is why we’re going to tell you some handy ways to obtain new skins and V-Bucks for free or at a reduced cost.
Here’s how to get free V-Bucks and skins in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.
How To Get Free V-Bucks And Skins
Prime Gaming regularly offers players the chance to grab free cosmetics. So be sure to sign up for Amazon Prime and link it to your Twitch account for regular free rewards.
PlayStation fans are occasionally offered free packs including the ‘True Colors’, exclusively for PS Plus subscribers.
Twitch users can obtain free drops by linking their Epic Games account to their Twitch account.
All you have to do is log in and watch specific streams (including FNCS streams) to claim them.
