Fortnite rare skin list

Cosmetics have always been important for people, to whom their in-game image is a representation of prestige and elitism. It is also a nice way of adding some variety and humor into popular game. New Fortnite cosmetic items are coming out with these players needs in mind. But it’s the rarity which makes certain skins so valuable these days. Welcome in our Fortnite rare skin list article.

 

 

What are the rarest Fortnite skins?

This is the topic, that brings a lot of controversy, mostly because of the fact, that true rarity of uncommon skins is unmeasurable. Generally speaking, if you ask yourself, 'Is the Infiltrator or Mayhem Fortnite skin rare?', we'll try to find the answer here.

 

First of all, words ‘rare’ and ‘uncommon’ have two different meanings in Fortnite Battle Royale.

 

First ones, most common meaning is the ‘Uncommon’ (green) and ‘Rare’ (blue) item category. These categories contain a lot of items, like weapons, skins, consumables, and gliders. And it’s definitely not the rarity we’re interested about.

 

A second category of outfits and gliders clusters really rare items together, from Legendary skins to content that is hard to get to get or no longer available. Some of the skins required expensive purchase or pre-order, while obtaining others involved performing certain actions or reaching a threshold. In this list we’ll mark them as available or unavailable.

 

There are many arguments about which outfits are the rarest, so we’ll not have them ranked. Although if you have any suggestions feel free to add your comments either on our Facebook or Twitter.

One thing you can be sure of - none of this skins are as popular as Raven, Raptor or Brite Bomber.

Available. Legendary. Price: 2,000 V-Bucks. 

League of Legends Urfwick released on the occasion of 2010 April Fool's Day and Chomp Sr. share similar concept. Skin offers a great white shark disguise, looks definitely adorable, and this makes it such wanted item among other outfits.

Mothmando

Fortnite Mothmando skin

Available. Epic. Price: 1,500 V-Bucks.

Nobody is sure if this outfits rarity is due to its ugliness, or is it some sort of making Mothman urban legend more believable, as you don’t see him very often just like Big Foot or Loch Ness Monster.

 

Sgt. Green Clover

Fortnite Sgt Clover skin

Unavailable. Uncommon. Price: 800 V-Bucks.

Released on the occasion of St. Patricks day in 2018. Looks merry and peaceful, but this may leave you surprised when she'll reply to your smile with a combat shotgun. There is a possibility of the return of this skin to the item shop, but as of now, it's pretty rare for an uncommon item. 

 

Purple Glow Skull Trooper

Fortnite skull trooper skin

Unavailable. Epic. Price: 1,200 V-Bucks.

The Skull Trooper itself is a rare skin, by many called 'ikonik'. It was available for purchase in the Fortnite item shop only in 2017, to be re-released in 2018 due to its popularity and high demand. For players who had the original Skull Trooper outfits, purple glow version of skin was introduced, and this makes it extremely rare as it is unavailable for purchase and probably won’t be available ever again.

 

Fable

Fortnite Fable skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass).

Another Little Red Riding Hood connected skin on this list. It takes one glance to tell, where did the inspiration come from. Fable skin is a great match for Dire skin. acquired for Battle Pass Tier 47 in season 6

 

Love Ranger

Fortnite love ranger skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 2,000 V-Bucks.

It's a bit like the Fortnite Battle Royale version of Cupid. Purple, made of stone and a little creepy, as if he was to ask you: "You gotta problem? With love?". In this case, 'crush' may mean something different, than the girl you like. It was available on the occasion of Valentine's Day (Hard to believe it wasn't Halloween).

 

Dark Voyager

Fortnite dark voyager skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass)

It was a reward for reaching Battle Pass Tier 70 back in Fortnite Season 3. It looks like a combination of an astronaut and some of the 'Tron' movie characters.

 

Codename E.L.F.

fortnite Codename e.l.f. skin

Unavailable. Rare. Price: 1,200 V Bucks.

Released during the 2018 holiday season, never to be seen again in the item shop since then.

 

Dusk

Fortnite

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass).

IT was a reward for reaching Battle Pass Tier 71 in Fortnite season 6. Considered one of the most beautiful Fortnite skin. It has an outlook of a female dressed in leather costume with claws, bat wings, and red eyes inspired by vampires, demons and so on. A kind of a woman you'd like to go out on a date, but you'd be too scared to do so.

 

Valor

Fortnite Valor skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass)

Obtainable for achieving Tier 71 in Fortnite Battle Pass Season 4. A 2017 Wonder Woman could have had looked like Valor, if it was cast by Halle Berry.

 

Crackshot

Fortnite Crackshot skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 2k V-Bucks.

Neither the rarest among Fortnite outfits, nor the most expensive, but undoubtedly the most noticeable. If you want to be original and noticed - this is the Fortnite skin for you.

 

Dante and Rosa of the Muertos Set

fortnite Muertos skin

Unavailable. Epic. Price: 1,5k V-Bucks.

It's a set including two characters - male and female. Inspired by Spanish culture and Mexican Día de Muertos. Kinda reminds me of a 'Coco' movie.

 

Recon expert

Fortnite Recon expert skin

Unavailable. Rare. Price: 1,2 k V-Bucks.

Not the most expensive, the sexiest or the most attractive skin on this list, not nearly as flashy as Crashot or Dante and Rosa, but by many players considered the rarest among all outfits. It was released in Fortnite season 1 as normal, purchasable skin, but nobody liked it, so it was withdrawn. Now after two years since Fortnite Battle Royale release it made this skin one of the most rarely found outfits.

 

Ragnarok

Fortnite Ragnarok skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass).

This skin is one of the outfits obtained by reaching certain battle Pass levels. If you've reached Battle Pass Tier 100 in season 5, you've been given the Viking skin. It's a progressive skin, which means that completing challenges related to it, unlocks its features. Basic version is nothing special, but fully upgraded is one of the most fly outfits out there. Also, it's a sign of skill since reaching Battle Pass Tier 100 is not easy.

 

Ghoul Trooper

Fortnite ghould trooper skin

Unavailable. Epic. Price 1,5k V-Bucks. 

Released as a Halloween 2017 promotion, much before the 2018 Fortnite days of popularity. The skin was not widely purchased from the Fortnite item shop, thus it's rare and really wanted. Many of the Twitch streamers are using it while playing. There's also a huge pressure on Epic Games to re-release it.

 

Galaxy skin

Fortnite galaxy skin

Unavailable. Epic. Price: hard to precise.

Considered one of the most expensive skins in Fortnite, as it required pre-order or purchase of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and is not available in the item shop.

Unlike the Skull Trooper, Galaxy skin is one of those outfits, that serves the purpose of showing off and bragging, that you can afford a few hundreds of dollars worth smartphone.

Funny fact - there were people so desperate to get this skin and so unwilling to buy Samsung Galaxy Note 9, that they went to an electronics shop, downloaded Fortnite on the displayed device, played three games and got the skins! At some point, the shp employees were watching closely, if there is anyone trying to do that, and Fortnite download was blocked on displayed smartphones.

 

Sparkle Specialist

Fortnite sparkle specialist skin

Unavailable. Epic. Price: 2k V-Bucks.

One of the Fortnite Season 2 outfits, very popular due to its sparkling outlook. If you want to get noticed inside the Storm Eye, this may be your choice. It was available for purchase long ago and has not appeared since, which makes it more valuable.

 

Aerial Assault Trooper

Fortnite Aerial assault trooper skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 1,2k V-Bucks.

Aerial Assault Trooper has his place among the most wanted outfits in Fortnite. It was available to purchase only during the Fortnite Season 1 and hasn't been available since. By many players is arguably the rarest skin.

 

Black Knight

Fortnite Black knight skin

Unavailable. Legendary. Price: 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass).

This is how would have Christians’ Bale Dark Knight looked like, if he was a member of Nilfgaard army in 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt'. Black Knight male-only outfits were granted to those players who reached Battle Pass Tier 70 during Fortnite season 2. It was released with also cool looking back bling shield. Black Knight is a part of Fort Knights set - along with Red Knight, Royale Knight, Blue Squire and couple of other items.

 

Renegade Raider

Fortnite Renegade Raide skin

Unavailable. Rare. Price: 1,2k V-Bucks (Battle Pass cost back then).

Renegade Raider skin was available only in Fortnite Battle Royale Season 1 and it's unavailable since then. Just like in the case of Recon Expert, the skin wasn't really attractive, thus not many players decided to get it. This way this is one of the rarest outfits in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Renegade Raider is a part of Storm Scavenger set.

 

 

Honorable mentions

These skins aren't as rare as outfits from the list above, but they are still worth mentioning due to their uniqueness, high usage rate by Twitch streamers and hype in Fortnite community.

 

Wild Card

Fortnite wild card skin

Available. Legendary. Price: 2k V-Bucks.

The Wild Card skin doesn't really give that much, but it offers an interesting feature - you can switch between four variants, which makes it really wanted by the Fortnite community.

Wild Card skin is a part of a Getaway Gang set.

 

Red Knight

fortnite red knight skin

Available. Legendary. Price: 2k V-Bucks.

Expensive Fortnite skin and still awesome looking, but it’s not as uncommon as Black Knight. Red Knight can be bought from the item shop and it is a part of Fort Knights set. Some say it's a poor version of Black Knight, and so it made it onto this list.

 

Star-Spangled Ranger and Star-Spangled Trooper

Fortnite star spangled skin

Unavailable. Uncommon. Price: 800 V-Bucks.

 

Although they are not the most expensive outfits, not the rarest, they earned a spot because of the fact they were last seen in the item shop almost a year ago! Male and female USA-themed outfits haven’t made it to the shop since then.

 

Omega outfit

Fortnite Omega outfit skin

Unavailable. Legendary. 950 V-Bucks (Battle Pass).

 

Not the rarest skins in Fortnite history, but definitely the one that says something about the owner. It was achieveable for reaching high Season 4 Battle Pass Tiers and is a synonim of proficiency at the game. Completing Omega challenges and reaching high Battle Pass tiers, unlocks additional parts of the outfit, which makes it look even more cool. Some say the skin is so scary and tryhardish, that weaker players are runnning away beyond the map and you can smell their fear in the air.

 

 

The most expensive Fortnite Battle Royale outfits

Basically, most of the skins are rather cheap, especially these marked as Common, Uncommon and Rare, which are still in rotation. Essentially you can step into the item shop and purchase one of these for the equivalent of 20$ anytime. The list below consists of Fortnite characters, that are expensive by themselves or they involve major investment.

 

Rose team leader

Rose team leader

Total cost: 20 - 100$

Founder PvE skins. A player could have acquired them for supporting Fortnite in its first days by buying the game starter bundle. The price ranged from 20$ to 100$ for the full edition. Whoever decided to help, can now enjoy them uncommon skins.

 

 

PlayStation Plus skins

Total cost: around 400$.

These skins are available only on PS4, so in order to gain them, you need to get yourself the newest Sony console. 

PlayStation Plus outfits are released in two versions:

  • male - Blue Striker,

Fortnite blue striker skin

  • female - Blue Team Leader

Fortnite blue team leader skin

These outfits are relatively rare, because you had to buy PS4 first. There are people who bought PS4 just to get those skins!

 

Royale Bomber

Fortnite Royale Bomber skin

Total cost: approximately 400$.

To get this one you’d need a PS4 along with PS+ from the UK, which costs more than regular PS4.

Although if you much desire the Royale Bomber skin, but you don’t feel like buying the whole console from Great Britain, you may search for Royale Bomber in the black market, but if you get caught, your freshly bought account will be banned.

 

Skull Trooper

Fortnite Skull Trooper Skin

Total cost: 400$ - 670$.

Very sought after among unavailable skins. Skull Trooper became something of a legacy. It was available only in 2017 and it’s treated as an icon of Fortnite origins. Skull Trooper owners are the ones, who are playing Fortnite since the beginning and spooky, bony outfits are a sign of it.

Price on the Fortnite skins and accounts black market goes up to 670$.

 

Galaxy Skin

Total cost: depending on the current Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price.

In order to get this one, as mentioned before, you'd need to buy Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Although there are many Fortnite players who did it only for skin. 

 

Free outfits list

You can get them for certain activities in a so-called ‘pack’ for certain activities, and although some of them involve purchasing something, the skins themself are listed as free.

 

PS4:

  • Currently Available PS4 Pack - in theory, these items are free, in spite of the fact, that you have to own a PS4 with PS+ subscribed

- Carbon pack

- Celebration pack.

 

  • Previous PS4 packs:

- Celebration pack

- PS+ pack.

 

  •  Twitch Prime - since we have an opportunity to get free Twitch Prime sub, these items became free as well.

- Twitch Prime pack 2 - Trailblazer skin, True North Back Bling, Tenderizer Pickaxe, and Freestyle Emote.



How to buy Fortnite Battle Royale skins

Buying skins that are in the rotation (even the uncommon ones), is not really that big of a deal. You simply go into the Fortnite item shop and spend money. It’s not more difficult than going into the regular grocery store and buying a cabbage. Few minutes and you can join your friends running around in a Brite Bomber outfit.

 

Not always have the rare skins been the most expensive. Sometimes even the uncommon outfits are reaching the black market price of Legendary outfits.

Of course, demand creates a supply. Most wanted outfits have their value in real money, so no wonder that there are people willing to pay that sum, and they are players ready to sell their accounts. The fortnite account cannot be sold, as it’s not a players property. It belongs to Epic Games, and thus only Epic Games can have the accounts at its command. Even an attempt of selling the account along with its skins and achievements is bannable.

 

This, however, is not a problem, as players have found a way to bypass the regulations. It's not really legal, but there is not much to do about it, as players claim they are selling time they spent playing. Interestingly enough the most expensive Fortnite account I found was sold for 5,000$!

 

How much was it really worth? Well, one of the economy rules says, that product is worth as much, as a customer is willing to pay. So...

 

 

What’s the fuss about outfits?

It's not like owning the skin is automatically boosting your skill and make you play better within a day. However there are a couple of reasons to gain possession of the rare skins from the list above. 

 

 

Splendor

Having one of the rarest, unavailable skins is like wearing clothes straight from famous fashion designers Versace, Gucci or Karl Lagerfeld. If you take into account, that Karl Lagerfeld has recently passed away, some of his creations might have even more value.

Also, there is sentimental value. First ever skin gained for Battle Pass Tier earned through days of grinding

 

 

Account value

Although Epic Games does not support Fortnite account selling, many players decide to get rid of their accomplishments either because of ending their gaming adventure or just in need of money. Many skins unlocked including the ones unavailable anymore, drastically increases accounts value.

For example usual account with 10 rather common skins is worth 7 USD, but advanced Fortnite account with rare or much-desired skins can cost you even 1000 €!

 

 

Identity

The skin you are using is a kind of representation of yourself. Perhaps you like flashy, colorful ones, or maybe gruesome, grim and spooky ones? 

Maybe you’re wearing all of them depending on your mood or on the day of the month? Or maybe you have your favorite one, that you are known for? Or maybe you were given your own Fortnite skin, like Ninja? 

 

Many esports players have made themselves known for using certain skins, or not using them at all. For example, SKT T1 Faker (LoL pro player) over the course of his pro career used a skin only a couple of times, including one by accident.

 

In-game outfits are a representation of player personality. Like a car. Some people buy Ferrari, Porsche or Lamborghini, not really subtle show-off, that’s fast, flashy and you can tell from a mile away, that the dude is loaded. Some of them buy Bentley, Maybach or Rolls-Royce, a sign of elegance, class and absurd wealth. And finally, there are people who drive old school Ford Mustang, Pontiac GTO or Camaro SS, a car with a soul, that is really exclusive, despite the fact that it doesn’t cost you 1,5 mln bucks.

 

Same for Fortnite outfits. A group of players will go for Galaxy skin, as it’s the most expensive. Others will choose to wear Black Knight, The Reaper or any other skin earned via accomplishments, challenges, that required days of playing and some skill. Some players will run around using Skull Trooper, Ghoul Trooper, Renegade Raider and the rest of true OG outfits. I'm sure you catch the drift.

 

And I’m sure there is a group of players who don’t care about the skin at all. For them, it’s still better to achieve Victory Royale wearing default skin, than lose with Blue Team Leader on.

 

 

References, theme outfits, and pop-culture

There are some iconic Fortnite Battle Royale outfits, like male-only The Reaper by many referred to as ‘John Wick’ skin. It is no secret that The Reaper due to his suit and weaponry was really similar to the famous assassin. Recently on the occasion of ‘John Wick 3: Parabellum’ premiere, a genuine John Wick skin was released. There were also Marvel character-based skins released on the occasion of Marvel movies coming out.

 

The Rainbows and Suns set, with female Brite Bomber and male Brite Gunner, is a reference to ‘My little pony’ franchise, as it was said that Fortnite is as candy as the famous animation.

 

 

Pay-to-win skins

You can list some of the skins in certain games as pay-to-win assortment, as they can give you a sort of a cheat-like tactical advantage straight from the item shop.

 

However, this is not the case for Fortnite. Most of the players tend to state, that none of the skins gives any kind of upper hand. Although some people say that Codename E.L.F. or Sgt. Green Clover, as they’re green, can serve the purpose of camouflage, especially in green areas.

 

Also, there is something that Fortnite players call ‘an intimidation effect’. When you see someone with Black Knight skin or The Reaper skin, you know, that this guy has been here for a long time and he’s got some skills to reach high Fortnite Battle Pass Tier. And he plays a lot. What’s more, this works all the way around. When players with extremely rare skins see an enemy with default or uncommon skin, they tend to underestimate them or maybe style on them for a cool YouTube video. Sometimes you can suddenly faze them with a subtle headshot.

 

 

Summary

Without a doubt, interesting, valuable and rare content, uncommon outfits and funny stuff is something that can build a community loyalty and keep Fortnite at the top of battle royale games among Apex Legends, Black Ops 4 or PUBG. All Fortnite skins, whether it's popular Brite Bomber, rare to be seen Renegade Raider or PS4 exclusive Blue Team Leader, are a sign, that Epic Games will do their best to keep the community involved.

 

The psychological factor is also important here, because the Fortnite community still waits for the most uncommon skins, like Raider or Recon Expert to be re-released. There is nothing much about them, but people still want them desperately. The company should be aware of high demand, and if they aim for an easy income, they should re-release the skin for an absurd price.

 

But on the other hand - is something available for everyone still exclusive? Sounds kinda like a paradox.

The bad news is that for now, fresh Fortnite players will probably never be able to have rare skins we list above without paying big money and possibly violating some terms of use.

 

So which Fortnite skin are you? Male or female? Ghoul trooper? Red Knight? Something happy and joyful or maybe dark and grim? Something less uncommon? Which one wakens your desire whenever you enter the item shop?
