Whether you’re diving headfirst into Tilted Towers or Shifty Shafts, you want to look good doing it. Fortnite has plenty of cosmetic skins to deck out your character in, but some are a bit more uncommon than others. Whether they show your dedication to sticking with the Battle Pass to the end, your bottomless wallet or your old-school credentials, each rare skin tells a story. So, sit back with your Loot Llama, climb into your onesie or just glide down from the sky. Here are 10 of the rarest Fortnite skins you can find out on the battlefield.
Most of Fortnite‘s rarest skins come from its seasonal Battle Pass. Every three months, a new With Fortnite‘s massive success, we’ve seen plenty of games adopt this style of skin and loot drops. You can buy a pass in releases like Black Ops 4 and Paladins, each coming with their own rare skin drops and other game-specific doodads. Current new hotness Apex Legends will also be getting a Battle Pass in March, and it will be interesting to see how this game learns from what Fortnite‘s done.
Also, with all the exclusive skins and a year’s worth of backlog, it will be interesting to see where Epic Games takes Fortnite‘s skin drops going forward.

Perhaps most importantly, will Epic ever re-release the most exclusive skins so more people can get their hands on them? Without the benefit of player trading, it seems silly to keep their rarity up, but it could be a system that’s working for them. Either way, it seems like there’s no stopping the battle royale train, so we’ll see plenty of rare Fortnite skins drop in the future.
