One of the most exciting aspects of Fortnite is the sheer amount of skins players can drop into the island with.
There are so many skins that you could easily play several battle royale games without running into the same one. Fortnite has its fair share of premium and free skins.
Not everyone can afford the bundles or skin sets that arrive in the Fortnite Item Shop. Some players look for opportunities to get free skins. Thankfully, the game has had some really good ones.
From best to worst: Free skins in Fortnite
1) Lt. Evergreen
Lt. Evergreen was a skin earned through the 2019 Winterfest event. You simply needed to go to the Winterfest Cabin and shake the tree. Then you received this Christmas tree wearing Jonesy skin. It is truly one of the best free skin options ever released in Fortnite.
2) Galaxy Skin
The Galaxy Skin is free in the sense that you don't need to purchase it in Fortnite. It was given to individuals who bought the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It is definitely one of the coolest skins in all of Fortnite and didn't cost players a thing if they had one of the aforementioned devices.
The Trailblazer skin was a Twitch Prime reward in Fortnite's Chapter 1 Season 4. Twitch Prime, now Prime Gaming, lets users have this skin at no cost. Ramirez has always been a popular model in the Battle Royale and this may have been what kickstarted that.
There are a handful of default skins that Fortnite players can load onto the Battle Bus with. They aren't the flashiest, but they have gathered a bit of a cult following. Some players use the default skin setting regularly just because they want to. Others enjoy it because they don't need to buy anything.
5) Sub Commander
The Sub Commander isn't a great skin at all, but it was free so you can't really knock it. It is another Twitch Prime, now Prime Gaming, reward that was available in Chapter 1 Season 3 of Fortnite. Although it is rarely seen anymore, it is a cool concept to add the purple Twitch colors to the skin.
