Free V-Bucks and Skins in Fortnite Chapter, Season 8

Here's how to get free V-Bucks and Skins in Fortnite Chapter, Season 8:

Complete Special Quests

Events like last Season's Fortnite Island Games give players the chance to earn special Cosmetic items.

Players can also earn exclusive Cosmetics from website events like last Season's Imposters Trials and Best Friendzy events.

Battle Pass holders also get a shot at extra bonus cosmetics, with a new Secret Skin that has yet to be unlocked.

Prime Gaming

Amazon Prime subscribers have access to Prime Gaming.

While there are currently no Prime Gaming Fortnite cosmetics currently, they add them frequently, and they usually come in the form of a free Skin.

Limited-Time Events And Cups

Limited-Time Events and Cups offer players a chance to win exclusive cosmetic items, or cosmetics items from the Item Shop before they are released to the public.

Fortnite's Wonder Woman Cup was a great example of this, allowing players to complete to earn Wonder Woman and some of her cosmetic items for free before other players could purchase them.

Epic Games usually runs several of these Character Cup events per Season, and there are plenty of other Limited-Time Events that offer other cosmetic items as well.

PlayStation Plus

Ok, this one is just for the PlayStation gamers, but Sony is offering a free Celebration Pack if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

This pack changes from time to time, so PlayStation Plus subscribers should check often to make sure there is not a new skin available!

Twitch Drops

Twitch often runs Drop Campaigns for Fortnite, with Loading Screens and more as rewards for watching specific streamers.

A Twitch account tied to an Epic Games account is required in order to claim the free items, but it is not too hard to set up.

There are no currently running campaigns, but Epic seems to run them fairly often.

Not Quite Free

These offers are not quite free, but offer an amazing value to Fortnite players, often offering multiple bonuses in the form of Skins, Emotes, and more.

Fortnite Crew

Fortnite's new way to spend in-game is offering players skins and V-Bucks for £9.99/$11.99/€11.99.

Every month, subscribers receive 1,000 V-Bucks as part of the Fortnite Crew subscription!

This is in addition to the V-Bucks they can unlock with your included Battle Pass access.

That's right, Crew Members also unlock the new Battle Pass as part of their subscription, giving them access to whatever unlockable skins and cosmetics for leveling up during the Season.

If that was not enough, each month also rewards members with an exclusive Skin and at least one other cosmetic item.

Crew Members also get additional bonuses, such as free Loading Screens, Save the World access, and free months of Spotify Premium.

Each month offers a different bonus, so it pays to keep an active subscription!

Challenge Packs

Each Battle Pass has rewards for players up to Level 100, as well as even more special rewards for players who overlevel.
