HOW TO GET NEW SKINS
In Fortnite, players have free access to default and free skins. And besides the free skins are those that cost real money. Skins in Fortnite are divided into 4 levels depending on their rarity. The 4 levels are: Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary. Each level requires players to spend a specific amount of V-Bucks, aka Fortnite’ s virtual currency. Uncommon skins cost 800 V-Bucks, Rare outfits cost 1,200 V-Bucks, Epic outfits cost 1,500 V-Bucks and Legendary skins cost 2,000 V-Bucks.
There is only one way to get V-Bucks, players have to buy them. If you want to buy V-Bucks on PC, go to Microsoft Store and you will be able to buy different packets of V-Bucks from it. The tip is that if you only want a certain skin, buy small V-Pucks packs. But if you are interested in different skins or you are sure that you will want to get your hands on more new skins in the future, buy bigger V-Bucks packs. The bigger V-Bucks packs are cheaper considering the number of V-Bucks that you receive and the amount of money that you spend. It is cheaper buying 1 pack of 5000 V-Bucks than 5 separated packs of 1000 V-Bucks.
WHAT IS BATTLE PASS AND HOW TO GET IT
Battle Pass is a bundle of fun stuff for players to enjoy. A Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks but the number of rewards that players receive if they reach the 100 tier worth 25.000 V-Bucks. A Battle Pass offers around 80 to 100 hours of gameplay. The players need to participate in matches and climb up on the Tier. There are 100 tiers in total. For each tier that players reach, they receive a reward. The reward can be skin, XP or V-Bucks. To buy the Battle Pass, firstly the players need to buy V-Bucks.
The skins don’t affect the fighting ability of players but they sure can give them a better mood when playing Fortnite. The skins are definitely expensive comparing to other games. But, since Fortnite is available to download for free, players can consider spending extra money for a cool outfit. The real price of the outfits goes from 9$ to 20$ and the level of rarity is different. So if you are one of those who want their character to look cooler with fun outfits, this price is reasonable.
