At this point, the number of skins and outfits available in Fortnite is almost comical. With so many characters appearing from other media, it can be easy to forget about some original outfits in the game. The Redcap skin is one of the latest fresh additions that you may not be seeing all that often, but not because it doesn’t look cool. This skin is completely free, however, not everyone will go out of their way to learn how to get it. If you want to roll into battle as a ninja mushroom person before it disappears, here’s how you can get the Redcap outfit totally free.
