The 10 Best Fortnite Skins

Best Fortnite Skins

And so, we decided to rank the 10 best Fortnite skins out of the game’s current dozens available. Some are still attainable on a rotating basis (the store refreshes daily) and are purchasable via V-Bucks, which can either be earned (albeit slowly) in-game or bought with real world money. Fortnite Battle Royale also offers a Battle Pass per season, which costs 950 V-Bucks ($9.50) for the intro tier, or 2,800 V-Bucks through its Premium version that starts off at tier 25. If you’re too eager to grind for experience, you can also level up faster with V-Bucks by buying EXP up to the next tier.

Other Fortnite skins, sadly, have been whisked away by time and the promise of holiday-bound exclusivity—though some have made surprise, fleeting returns to the daily shop. It’s a shame too, since some of the very best skins in Fortnite end up being the rarest ones. (Funny how that works, right?)

Beef Boss Fortnite Skin

Beef Boss Fortnite Skin

Still in Rotation? Yes
Rarity: Epic (Purple)
Cost: 1,500 V-Bucks ($15)

Beef Boss is the dumbest name for a skin, and yet, it works. The Beef Boss is essentially another variant of the Tomatohead skin, featuring a different recognizable mascot from Fortnite’s map. It’s the Durr Burger head, with its signature big ol’ tongue. It’s mostly unremarkable aside from the giant burger face, but for that excellent name—Beef Boss—it deserves a spot on this list, unequivocally.

Peely Fortnite Skin

Peely Fortnite Skin

Still Available? Yes
Rarity: Epic (Purple)
Cost: Tier 47 on Season 8 Battle Pass (base Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks)

Like all the mascot characters in Fortnite, there is something unwelcoming about the hollow, beedy eyes of Peely. Peely is a walking, maybe-talking banana. It’s quite obviously a man in a banana suit, but nevertheless, it’s a big ol’ banana. It might not be the best skin strategy wise (I mean, c’mon, it’s easy to spot a giant banana from across a field), but it’s a silly one, characteristically on par with Fortnite’s other silly-minded skins. It’s not the most memorable of the mascot skins—Tomatohead still takes that prize—but it’s still a great entry.

Tomatohead Fortnite Skin

Tomatohead Fortnite Skin

Still in Rotation? Yes
Rarity: Epic (Purple)
Cost: 1,500 V-Bucks ($15)

The Tomatohead skin is kinda terrifying. It’s based off the titular Tomato Town, a location on Fortnite Battle Royale’s map that features a fast food joint. The giant tomato head that spins round and round from the top of a pole is an unmissable landmark, so Epic Games decided to pay homage to it with the Tomatohead skin. The skin itself is unsettling—the tomato helmet is the most unpleasant part of it, obviously—but it’s lively in the realm of Fortnite’s battlefield. You can even upgrade the Tomatohead to a way creepier version, outfitted with a makeshift crown, if you complete certain challenges while donning the skin.

Chomp Sr. Fortnite Skin

Chomp Sr. Fortnite Skin

Still in Rotation? Yes
Rarity: Legendary (Orange)
Cost: 2,000 V-Bucks ($20)

Shark Week, baby! Chomp Sr. looks like someone’s half-assed Halloween costume, and that’s what makes it so sick. As if someone dug through their closet and found an old scuba suit, and then cut off a hood from something and stitched felt teeth to make it look like a shark head. And then they put on sunglasses from the 1990s, just because. Sure, Chomp Sr. is basically just a shark version of the Rex skin, but sharks are way cooler than dinosaurs. This point is inarguable.

World Cup Fortnite Skins

World Cup Fortnite Skins

Still Available? No
Rarity: N/A
Cost: 1,200 V-Bucks ($12)

It’s been an exciting World Cup, hasn’t it? Fortnite got in on the football (or soccer) action this year with some special limited time skins. It’d be useless to highlight one, even though all eight have their own unique names (from Clinical Crosser to Midfield Maestro). That’s because regardless of which body you choose, the skins can be styled after one of the 24 competing countries. The number can be customized too, whether to highlight a favorite player or just your personal lucky number. We’ve seen evolvable Fortnite skins in the past (such as Omega), and it’d be cool to see more customizable ones like the World Cup-themed skins in the future too.

Sgt. Winter Fortnite Skin

Sgt. Winter Fortnite Skin

Still Available? No
Rarity: Epic (Purple)
Cost: Tier 23 on Season 7 Battle Pass (base Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks)

Have you seen that new Christmas movie on Netflix with Kurt Russell as Santa? The whole premise of it is basically, “What if Santa was hot and had an attitude?” I get that vibe from Sgt. Winter, the newest skin in Fortnite for Season 7. He’s Santa, but he’s Santa ready to rumble in a battle royale. His beard also protects him from the cold, I think.

Wukong Fortnite Skin

Wukong Fortnite Skin

Still in Rotation? No
Rarity: Legendary (Orange)
Cost: 2,000 V-Bucks ($20)

Wukong is where skins start getting just a little bit more expensive. Released around Chinese New Year as part of a celebration of the holiday, the Mythic Soldier shines with prominence on the battlefield. His shoulder blades glisten in the bright world of Fortnite, because of its bright gold armor. If you want the potential (but not really any potential) to blind a foe on the treacherous battlefield with your shoulderblades, then Wukong is one of the best skins to have for its sheer shininess.

Dire Fortnite Skin

Dire Fortnite Skin

Still Available? No
Rarity: Legendary (Orange)
Cost: Tier 100 on Season 6 Battle Pass (base Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks)

Okay, at first, the Dire skin kinda stinks. It’s just a dude in normal clothes. He looks boring. And then the skin levels up, and the Dire starts to take its form. It doesn’t start to get cool until Tier 3, where the Big Bad Wolf takes his shape. The higher the tier, the more intricate the wolf becomes. My personal favorite is Tier 5, a white wolf. Werewolves are usually all the same color (brown) in movies and television for some reason, so to see one whose home appears to be in the snowy mountains looks quite striking.

Rook Fortnite Skin

Rook Fortnite Skin

Still Available? No
Rarity: Epic (Purple)
Cost: Tier 87 on Season 5 Battle Pass (base Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks)

Rook isn’t quite at the very top, but the skin is still quite high compared to the rest. Rook is a battle-ready skin, with the character wearing a bulletproof vest and an outfit that looks like she just got off work and had to hop on the Battle Bus to commute home to a Victory Royale. She’s outfitted with glasses too, which completes the look. In the grand scheme of skins, Rook’s is one of the most subtle and actually battle royale-prepared of the entire game.

Bunny Brawler Fortnite Skin

Bunny Brawler Fortnite Skin

Still in Rotation? Yes
Rarity: Epic (Purple)
Cost: 1,500 V-Bucks ($15)

Between the two Easter-related Fortnite skins—Bunny Brawler and Bunny Raider—the former is far cuter. The skin outfits the player in an adorable onesie that looks like pajamas from a kindergartner’s closet. (Or older, as poor Ralphie from A Christmas Story learns.) The Bunny Brawler stands out as one of the skins that might not be tactically responsible, as its pastel blue hue and pointy bunny ears may stick out in the lush green world of Fortnite Battle Royale. But hey, the skin’s adorable. So who the heck cares?
