Are there any free skins in Fortnite?
In Fortnite, there are currently no free skins available. PlayStation Plus subscribers previously had the opportunity to claim a free Sultura skin, but that offer has since expired. While Epic Games rarely offers free skins in Fortnite, we will keep you updated if any new skins are released.
How to get free skins in Fortnite
Fortnite offers a variety of methods for obtaining free skins, but most of the time you must put in some effort, such as opening a certain number of presents during Winterfest or completing special challenges.
There is a possibility that Krisabelle and Polar Peely will be unlocked for free during Winterfest 2021. Sometimes, Epic Games hosts themed tournaments for crossover characters such as Beast Boy and The Flash, as well as ICON Series skins for streamers like Chica, where the highest ranking players can earn the skins for free before they go on sale.
It is an extremely rare occurrence to be able to obtain codes for free skins in Fortnite, and this usually occurs as a result of social media giveaways. There are numerous scams out there that offer free codes. Be careful when searching for these codes online.

Are there any other ways to get free Fortnite skins?
Even though Fortnite Crew is not technically free, subscribers will receive a number of rewards, including a new skin and matching cosmetics each month. A monthly subscription to the service costs $11.99 (or £9.99).
You are also entitled to access the Fortnite Crew Battle Pass, which contains a number of skins that can be unlocked as you accumulate experience points. There are currently several skins available as part of the Battle Pass, including Doctor Strange. In terms of efficiency and reliability, this is the best method of receiving new skins in Fortnite every month, although there is a cost associated with subscribing, so it is not really ‘free’.
