How to get free skins on Fortnite Nintendo Switch

If you wonder how to get free skins on Fortnite for Nintendo Switch , read carefully the next lines of this tutorial. I am, in fact, about to tell you about all the solutions you can put in place to get the costumes for your character in the famous video game developed by Epic Games.

Play Battle Royale

Play Battle Royale

The only completely free method to get skins on Fortnite is to play Battle Royale , a PVP mode that provides last man standing clashes with other players.

In fact, you must know that by completing the levels provided by the seasonal tiers of the free Battle Pass , it is possible to obtain the V-Bucks , the most used virtual game currency on Fortnite. Once you get a fair number of V-Bucks , you can purchase the costumes through the Item Shop where, on average, the cost of the costumes is 1,500 V-Bucks .

That said, at the time of writing this tutorial, the free Battle Pass seasonal tiers offer 100 V-Bucks at level 11 . Another 100 V-Bucks can be obtained at level 34 . Rewards may vary with the seasons, so I recommend viewing them in real time by accessing the Lobby’s Battle Pass menu .

However, if you want to get more V-Bucks and, consequently, get skins faster, you must consider buying the Battle Pass ( 950 V-Bucks ) or the Battle Bundle ( 2,800 V-Bucks ), which can be purchased directly into the game, via the Battle Pass menu .

Yes, in fact, it is about enhancements for your account, which allow you to level up faster and also get additional rewards. In this case, at level 1 two costumes are obtained, at level 4 100 V-Bucks are obtained , while an additional costume is obtained at level 23 .

The purchase of these upgrades is completely optional: if your goal is to get skins on Fortnite without spending money (the V-Bucks can also be purchased for a fee , spending real euros) I recommend you play for free at Fortnite and accumulate V-Bucks  with the  free Battle Pass , in order to invest them in the purchase of the Battle Pass or the Battle Bundle .

Purchase a bundle

Another solution to have free skins on Fortnite is the one that concerns the purchase of a bundle , or a package that, in addition to the Nintendo console and the free downloadable game, includes  V-Bucks and costumes for your character. You can see some examples of these bundles below.

A similar package is called the Red Attack Package  (Costume + 600 V-Bucks), which can be purchased for € 4.99 directly from the Game Store or via the Nintendo eShop .

Beware of scams

Beware of scams

In conclusion, I want to remind you that, the only solutions to have free skins on Fortnite for Nintendo Switch are the ones I told you about in my guide.

As the developers of Fortnite have also stated on Twitter , you should absolutely be wary of anyone who promises to give V-Bucks or skins for free, by contacting the players directly in Fortnite or inviting them to redeem them through special Internet sites: these are scams .

In this regard, to avoid incurring scam attempts, never enter the access data of your Epic Games account on websites other than the official ones. If you have any doubts about the reliability of a website, check the presence of the HTTPS protocol  ( the icon of the green padlock closed ) in the address bar, as well as its reputation among users via websites such as TrustPilot . For more information on this, read my tutorial where I talk to you about  how to recognize a fake site .

In addition, you can protect your Epic Games account through two-factor authentication : it is a system that prevents unauthorized access with an additional, disposable code, combined with the main password. By logging in from an unrecognized device, you will be prompted to enter the account password plus a disposable code received via email or obtained through an app such as  Google Authenticator  ( Android / iOS ).

Finally, if you believe that your account has been scammed, or if you have encountered unauthorized access to your Epic Games account, contact Fortnite technical support immediately , in order to get help from the operators of the company to secure everything.
