What are the coolest Fortnite Skins. We’ve asked our readers, consulted the forums and leaned on the pros to compile a list of the best and rarest Fortnite Skins out there.

Now, keep in mind this list is subject to change as Epic can decide to re-release skins at any time.

25. Tomato Head

  • Rarity: Legendary (Orange)
  • Cost: 2,000 V-Bucks ($20)

In all honesty, this skin looks like a bad Halloween costume that a lazy teenager scrapped together after watching a marathon of Sharknado movies. But in a strange way, that is exactly what makes this skin so desirable. Go figure.

The Big Bad Wolf of Little Red Riding Hood lore makes this list. It was obtainable as a reward for reaching tier 100 on Season 6 Battle Pass. Or maybe its thre dire wolves of Game of Thrones Legend. You be the judge.

  • Rarity: Epic (Purple)

Crackshot is a character skin that features a huge terrifying Nutcracker mask which is silly in all honesty. And while the set won’t give you any tactical advantage on the battlefield, it will certainly make everyone notice you. So if that is what you are going for, this is the skin for you.

9. Dante and Rosa of the Muertos Set

6. Ghoul Trooper

Ghoul Trooper Skin Fortnite

  • Still in Rotation: No
  • Rarity: Epic (Purple)
  • Cost: 1500 V-Bucks ($15)

  • Rarity: Epic (Purple)
  • Cost: Samsung Galaxy Note or the Galaxy Tab S4 ($400+)

The Galaxy skin is currently the most expensive skin to date as it required the pre-order or purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Note or the Galaxy Tab S4. Players then needed to install Fortnite on the device and play 3 games. At which time, they were rewarded with the skin. This skin is rare because it was only available to Samsung customers. This skin went mainstream when Ninja was seen using it.

4. Sparkle Specialist

Sparkle Specialist skin

  • Still in Rotation: No
  • Rarity: Epic (Purple)
  • Cost: 2,000 V-Bucks ($20)

A disco themed skin, the Sparkle Specialist appeared in Season 2 and hasn’t reappeared since. If you want to get your YMCA on, you’ll have to wait until this skin hits the shelves again.

black knight skin

 

  • Still in Rotation: No
  • Rarity: Legendary (Orange)
  • Cost: Base Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks

Available after purchasing the Season 2 Battle Pass, the Black Knight skin is a rare one indeed.  You would have needed to reach Teir 70 to obtain this skin and it also came bundled with a cool back bling sheild. Having this skin says you’ve been in the game for quite some time. The Black Knight skin is cool looking skin that’s sure to get the attention of your foes.

1. Renegade Raider

renegade raider rare fortnite skin

  • Still in Rotation: No
  • Rarity: Rare (Blue)
  • Cost: Base Battle Pass costs 1200 V-Bucks

Available during Season 1 only and after you’ve reached level 20, this is the rarest Fortnite Skin to date. Due to only being available during Season 1 and it not being a very attractive skin to some, not many players purchased this skin. It has never been re-released giving it the top spot on our list.

    • Honestly, this post is pretty correct and I do believe the renegade raider is the rarest but the reaper should be up there too
