Top 8 Best Fortnite Skins of All Time
Click on a link below to automatically scroll to that Fortnite skin:
Deadpool was introduced as a challenge reward in Chapter 2, Season 2. Players went mad about him instantly, which makes him one of the best skins of all time by default. He is the perfect crossover as he uses an assault rifle and a rocket launcher in the comics and movies.
Spider-Man is yet another crossover that sent fans wild when it was released. It was made available for the first time in the Chapter 3: Season 1 Battle Pass with a web-shooter item. Just a week later, the legendary skin was pushed to the Item Shop so many could score a Victory Royale as the iconic superhero.
Perhaps one of the rarest skins in Fortnite, Renegade Raider was only ever available as a Battle Pass reward in Chapter 1, Season 1. The rarity has automatically scored it a place on the list, not to mention that having it means you’re an OG player.
Since Fortnite’s launch, many superheroes have entered the realm, and like the rest of them, the excitement building up for Superman’s release was insanely high, especially since it was revealed as a Chapter 2 Season 7 Secret Skin.
In addition to the immortal outfit, it also came with an emote that transformed you from Clark Kent to Superman mid-match. There was also an epic Shadow style reserved for the most dedicated players.
The sole reason to play with Peely is the absolute ridiculousness factor. Released with Chapter 1, Season 8, you’ll be spotted from miles away on the island as you are, quite literally, a peeled banana with limbs. The skin starts off as a greenish-yellow color, before ripening to a classic yellow and then slowly to brown as the match progresses, just like the fruit would do in real life. Kinda cool, huh?
Midas is one of Fortnite’s original characters and one of the best-designed ones. The leader of spies was the Level 100 reward for Chapter 2, Season 2’s Battle Pass.
Since then, he has become insanely popular and has received various iterations, including Shadow Midas and Midas Rex.
The crossover hit skin from the Netflix fantasy-horror series Stranger Things, the Demogorgon is certainly one of the most terrifying cosmetics ever seen in Fortnite.
It was added to the battle royale in Chapter 1, Season 9, but was last available more than 900 days ago.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 brought Marvel characters, and many thought that the anticipation couldn’t have been beaten. However, Season 5 saw the arrival of the heavily popular bounty hunter, The Mandalorian, from Star Wars.
The skin is special in several ways and perhaps the best one yet. Players could unlock extra pieces of armor as they progressed through the Battle Pass. Moreover, you got a Baby Yoda back bling after reaching Level 100, which automatically gives it top marks.
