The world’s most popular game, Fortnite has the biggest player base right now of any game and with such popularity comes high demand for exclusive ingame content. And with the launch of Fortnite on Android that debuted on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, users saw Epic Games introduce an exclusive skin that will only be available for Galaxy Note 9 users.

So naturally everyone wanted it, and to do that, people went to great lengths. But the solution it turned out was pretty easy. The Fortnite Galaxy skin is available to those that pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and they would get to play the Android beta version of the game and users would even be awarded 15,000 V-Bucks which is the in-game currency. Users had the option to opt for the skin and the credit, or a pair of headphones.

So what people did was to go into the Samsung retail stores selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and download the game on one of the devices in the store and sign in using their account and then play three games. Following this, the skin becomes downloadable for the user no matter what device they are using.

Samsung stores soon found out what people have been doing and even put up signs asking people to not download Fortnite on their devices. Samsung on its part has not yet made any comments or official statements to address people that have downloaded the skin using this method and if they will be allowed to keep the skin.
