Fortnite has a host of cosmetics for you to unlock through in-game events and the seasonal Battle Pass.

Unfortuneatly, there are a lot of cosmetics that are locked behind a paywall.

Here, we'll cover some of the best cosmetics you can unlock without needing to put extra money into the game.

Battle Pass

The main way to unlock awesome skins and cosmetics is through the in-game Battle Pass.

ETERNAL KNIGHT - This seasons Battle Pass has one of the best Tier 100 skins!


This is a Seasonal Ladder in which you can unlock paid or free content and cosmetics.

If you choose not to purchase that season's Battle Pass, you'll still be able to unlock some awesome back bling and emotes along the way!

You may also get your hands on some free V-Bucks, which you can spend in the store to unlock more skins.

Save the World

Save the World is Fortnite's "Horde Mode" rather than Battle Royale.

If you purchased the Save the World bundle, you would've got two free skins to use in Battle Royale.


This included a character, back bling and pickaxe. Save the World also makes obtaining V-Bucks much easier.

In-game Events

Epic Games also hosts in-game events, where you can unlock customisation like gliders and back blings.

A great example of this is the Star Wars crossover. In this event, you could unlock free skins like the Millenium Falcon Glider.
