The Fortnite community is always happy to see free skins added to the game, and the 27.10 update added the free Runway Racer outfit. Here’s how to unlock the free Runway Racer skin in Fortnite.

Fortnite features tons of different skins and cosmetics for fans to unlock, with more being added all the time. In Season OG alone, the Battle Pass was stuffed with new outfits, while a Stranger Things crossover also arrived briefly.

The only downside is that most of these items need to be purchased, but the devs do occasionally release free unlocks to grind for. With the Fortnite 27.10 update live in-game, players can earn the Runway Racer skin for no extra cost.

Here’s how to get the Runway Racer skin in Fortnite.
