How to get free skins on Fortnite Nintendo Switch
If you wonder how to get free skins on Fortnite for Nintendo Switch, read the next lines of this tutorial carefully. In fact, I am going to talk to 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
The only completely free way to get Fortnite skins is to play Battle royal, PVP mode that involves last man standing battles with other players.
In fact, you must know that by completing the levels provided by the seasonal tiers of the Free Battle Pass, you can get the V-Bucks, which is the most used virtual game currency on Fortnite. Once you have 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 seasonal tiers of the Free Battle Pass offer 100 V-Bucks al level 11. Others 100 V-Bucks you can get them at level 34. The rewards may vary with the passing of the seasons, so I recommend that you see them in real time by accessing the menu Pass Battle area of Lobby.
However, if you want to get a number greater than V-Bucks and, consequently, get the skins faster, you have to consider buying the Battle Pass (950 V-Bucks) or of Battle Bundle (2.800 V-Bucks), which can be purchased directly in game, via the menu Battle Pass.
Yes, in fact, it is about upgrades for your account, which allow you to level up faster and also to obtain additional rewards. In this case, a level 1 two costumes are obtained, a level 4 they are obtained 100 V-Bucks, 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 (V-Bucks can also be purchased for a fee, spending real euros) I recommend that you play Fortnite for free and accumulate V-Bucks with the Free Battle Pass, in order to invest them for the purchase of Battle Pass or the Battle Bundle.
Purchase a bundle
Another solution to get 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.Vedi offers your Amazon

Beware of scams
In conclusion, I want to remind you that, the only solutions for get free skins on Fortnite for Nintendo Switch are the ones I told you about in this guide of mine.
As the Fortnite developers have also stated on Twitter, you must absolutely be wary of anyone who promises to give V-Bucks or skins for free, by contacting players directly in Fortnite or inviting them to redeem them through special Internet sites: it is about scams.
In this regard, to avoid running into scam attempts, never enter the login details of your Epic Games account on websites other than the official ones. In case you have doubts about the reliability of an Internet site, check the presence of the protocol HTTPS (the closed green lock icon) in the address bar, as well as its reputation with users via websites such as TrustPilot. For more information on this, read my tutorial in which I tell you 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 master password. By logging in from an unrecognized device, you will be prompted to type the account password plus a disposable code received via email or obtained through an app such as Google Authenticator (Android / iOS).
Finally, in the event that you believe that your account has been the subject of a scam, or if you have encountered unauthorized access to your Epic Games account, contact the Fortnite technical support immediately, in order to get help from the operators of the company to secure everything.
