Earlier this month, Samsung announced that Epic Games with the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 would also launch Fortnite Beta for Android. People who pre-ordered the new smartphone between August 10 and August 23 received a special offer: a choice between a pair of AKG noise-reducing headphones or $ 15,000 V and an exclusive Galaxy Fortnite skin. Although this offer no longer exists, there is still another way that players can unlock and redeem this rare cosmetic item.
Unlock the Galaxy skin without a pre-order
First you must own or buy a Galaxy Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4. These are the only Samsung products that are eligible for the offer and pre-ordering is not required. It is important to know that Samsung has limited the offer to one skin per mobile device, which means that if your friend already redeems the skin on his eligible phone or tablet, you will not be able to use it again.
Next, you need to download Fortnite from Galaxy Apps in your Samsung folder. You can currently find banners for it under the tab labeled GAMES in the store. Tap on banners and select INSTALL & OPEN. Approve the conditions to complete the installation of the game. You must also have an Epic Games account to log in.
Once you have the game up, play three Fortnite games on your phone. It doesn't matter if you win or lose the games ̵1; just make sure that after you complete each round, you select "Return to Lobby." This will ensure that every match counts for your three-game total.
When you have completed all of the above, wait for one to two days and you will receive a gift box with Fortnite Galaxy skin inside!
Yes, you will need a Galaxy Phone
Currently owning a Galaxy Note 9 or Tab S4 is the only way you can get this psychedelic, space-themed theme. Who knew players would have to spend up to $ 600 to get exclusive skin? While technically not counted as a micro transfer, this begs the question – do players really like the loot and other forms of buying items in the game?
Epic Games has not mentioned whether the availability of this skin will change over time. If you can't get hold of the Galaxy skin, don't sweat too much! Exclusive cosmetic items are increasing in Fortnite, especially with the release on various gaming platforms so there will be many more opportunities to get a cool, rare skin for your collection.
