Fortnite isn’t just about 3rd person shooting and building, it’s about fun. Sometimes there’s nothing better than throwing on a crazy outfit or skin before launching yourself into the battlefield. Some might make you laugh, some might make your jaw drop. One of the wonderful aspects of the game is that there’s a costume for everyone. A perfect way to express yourself by way of a hilarious or killer costume on your character. But only a few of them really take your breath away. Making you stop and think for a second right before you meet your doom at the end of their weapon.
But which are the best of the best? The most incredible skins fighting other players as they all outrun the storm? Out of many, there’s only a few costumes that are truly unforgettable. Here are the top 10 skins and outfits in Fortnite!
There’s nothing worse than being hunted by the Love Ranger. This outfit was one of 2 available on Valentine’s Day, but stands out thanks to its stoney exterior and fantastic wings. A statuesque, modern-day Cupid in hot pink pants. Epic has made a point of including incredibly creative and beautiful skins in the game. While the Love Ranger isn’t as colorful as some of the other outfits, it’s one that almost every player falls in love with.
The most recently announced skin on this list is just…unspeakably awesome. The Leviathan skin looks like a mix of Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Evil Con Carne from Cartoon Network. In short, it’s a fish inside of an old mariner’s outfit. But it’s cookiness makes it one of the most uniquely weird outfits in the entire game. If you get the drop on another player in a Leviathan suit, you might just win be scaring the crap out of them.
This member of the Pastel Patrol set was released to celebrate Easter. Even if the Rabbit Raider doesn’t really look like he’s celebrating anything. If Ralphie from A Christmas Story went down a sad, sad road he’d probably end up looking like the Rabbit Raider. The skin is great for fans of all things crude, rude and lude. Giving fans a simple and elegant Bunny outfit certainly isn’t ridiculous enough for Epic. No, they had to go out of their way to create an outfit you just can’t look away from. For both good and bad reasons.
“Our artists were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should!” The wonderfully clever tagline that Epic Games used to announce the Rex skin. A fun little reference to Jurassic Park. Well, the Rex outfit won’t inspire quite as much fear as a T-Rex or Raptor would. Actually, like the Rabbit Raider skin it’s better to think of it as really nice pj’s. But no matter what you think of it, for 2,000 v-bucks Rex is one of the funniest and well-designed skins in the game.
The Brite Bomber is no laughing matter. In fact, she’s one of the most badass designs in the entire game. Just because her emblem is a crazed Rainbow’d Unicorn doesn’t mean she’s any less deadly. Actually, by the looks of that Unicorn, she’s downright crazy. The Brite Bomber was available for 1,200 v-bucks. A lighter price than most of the other outfits on this list. A surprise considering this skin is one of the most colorful and vibrant in the game. The Brite Bomber might not be good for camouflage, but sporting the Unicorn proudly makes her one of the best skins of all.
Yes, the Dark Voyager is on the cover of Season 3. But there’s a reason for that. This skin is simple, it’s striking, and it’s insanely awesome. Reminiscent of countless sci-fi movies and TV shows from the past. But at the same time, thanks to simple lighting and dark colors, it’s one of the most unique costumes in the game. Not to mention, the Voyager is possibly the most popular outfit in the game. Despite the fact that it’s on Tier 70 of the Season 3 battle pass. Not an easy feat to reach. But if you’re looking to acquire the most iconic skin in the game, you’re going to have to put in the hours.
However, it doesn’t compare to the hours you’ll have to put in for this skin. While Reaper is his name, looking exactly like John Wick is his game. This skin is one of the few in the game that is actually meant to resemble something outside of the Fortnite world.
Because who wouldn’t want to run into one of Fortnite’s Taco Shops with an assault rifle…as JOHN F*%&ing WICK! Pretty much everyone would. But this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill achievement skin. You’ll have to reach level 100 of the Season 3 battle pass to unlock him. But once you get this Reaper skin, you’ll realize it was all worth it.
Only a few of the skins are actual armors. Which is a surprise considering any other game would have Knights, Crusaders and other ancient armors running around by now. But Epic is smarter than that, keeping the designs to more minimal and intricate armors like the Battle Hound.
Part Game of Thrones and part Gladiator, this armor will turn any Battle Royaler into a golden god. Unfortunately, the outfit has no back bling despite the 2,000 v-bucks price tag. Especially when there’s a perfect opportunity to throw a blue cape on there. Who knows? Epic listens to the community, and many have noted the missing bling. Chances are it will come down the line. But as of right now it doesn’t keep the Battle Hound from being one of the best skins.
To celebrate Chinese New Year, Epic released 3 brand new skins. The first two were…okay. The Crimson Scout and Scarlet Defender skins are great. Really. But Epic would have a better way to celebrate Chinese New Year, right? Right. They released the insane Wukong skin based on the mythological Chinese Monkey King. Like the Battle Hound this skin is one of the few armors in the game, and is by far the best.
Despite only having pretty much two colors, the Wukong is one of the most complex designs. Everything from the mask to the pauldrons is covered in red and gold awesome. The skin was available for 2,000 v-bucks, with a matching Dragon Axe on the side for another 800.
The Raven is the #1 outfit in Fortnite, for many reasons. First of all, the design is intricate and very detailed. A mix of old school fantasy novels and modern Final Fantasy games. The outfit was so popular when it was released, that it made it slightly more difficult to buy in-game currency for the next couple of days. It cost 2,000 v-bucks, which is the norm for most new outfits. Enough to keep some people from taking the plunge.
But another reason some avoided the costume was because they thought the design was so cool that every other player would get it. Becoming so popular that the game would be filled with “Raven’s” fighting each other. As any player knows, that isn’t the case. But to see a player in Raven garb is just so awesome you might find yourself a victim while you’re jaw is dropped.
