1) What are Fortnite skins?
Skins are cosmetic items in Fortnite that players can add to their in-game character to change their appearance.
They can be purchased on the Epic Store using Fortnite’s in-game currency, V-Bucks.
Skins range in price from 800 V-Bucks all the way up to 2,000 V-Bucks. A pack of 1,000 V-Buck costs £6.49/$7.99.
Over the years, skins have become more elaborate and today can be used to dress your character up as famous faces.
Recently, Fortnite-maker Epic Games has released skins for Marvel’s Black Panther, the Xenomorph from the “Alien” franchise and even football superstar Neymar.
2) What is Fortnite Battle Pass?
The Battle Pass is a featured item in Fortnite Battle Royale that you can purchase through the Epic Store.
It offers you the chance to win V-Bucks and up to 100 items, including in-game cosmetics.
Players unlock new items by playing the game. Each match will earn them experience that helps them climb up through levels one to 100.
Players can also purchase levels at 150 V-Bucks for each level. Levelling up your character grants you rewards.
A Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks, or around £6.49/$7.99. Battle Passes reset each season.
3) What are the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 skins?

Epic also has a bunch of recently released, purchasable skins that will almost certainly be available in the new season, too.
