How to Get the Free FNCS Renegade Skin
One of the most popular and recognisable skins in Fortnite has to be the Renegade Raider. Originally one of the very first Fortnite skins, lately Epic has used the character’s shape and look to make newer skins. One of these is the FNCS Renegade. This season that skin is back with a brand new coloring and design to match the current FNCS Major Drops. Epic isn’t giving away this skin entirely for free unless you can earn it.
Rather than sitting around for 15 minutes, there’s a bit of competition to get your hands on the FNCS Renegade skin. If you want to get it for free, you’ll have to compete in a new type of competitive tournament. A bit trickier than just grabbing the FNCS Major 3 drops. A new version of the skin has made it to the game that’s going to be part of an upcoming tournament. Those who compete in the FNCS Community Cup will be able to compete to unlock the free FNCS Renegade skin. You’ll need to rank pretty high to get the skin itself.
While the top prize is only going to be the best Duos, there are more prizes for taking part. Anyone who gets at least 8 points will get their hands on a special spray. Although, you’ll need to be one of the winners to get the skin itself.
Outside of this tournament, the FNCS Renegade skin will be available in the store too. If you fancy your chances though, you can always jump into the tournament and try and unlock the full skin for free. Most players will likely walk away with at least a free spray for their trouble.
What is the Renegade Skin?
The new FNCS Renegade skin is a different version of a Fortnite classic. It’s the Renegade Raider skin with a new color design. They’ve done a few different versions of the Raider in the past but the new one features a fresh style with a unique color scheme for the character. Players can get their hands on the free FNCS Raider skin in the store or tournament, but the original Raider is a bit trickier.
The Renegade Raider has long been thought of as one of the rarest Fortnite skins. This character was originally added in the very first season of the game. Only those who started with the very first OG Fortnite season would have been able to pick the skin up. It even cost V-Bucks, and back then fewer players were spending cash as it was less certain the game was going to be around for all that long. Compared to just grabbing free FNCS Major 3 drops, it was difficult to get at the time.
The new version of the Renegade Raider for the FNCS is a great chance to get a version of the skin though. The free FNCS Renegade skin is even a chance to grab one without paying. If you can successfully get the skin, this one might go on to be rare too. Since it’s in this season’s FNCS colors it likely won’t be back in this exact form beyond this round of tournaments.
