The 42 Rarest Fortnite Skins To Flex On Your Foes

The worldwide craze that is Fortnite has swept the gaming world off its feet and there are a number of reasons why. It might be the unique building mechanics, the ever-changing and dynamic map, the variety of weapons and vehicles on offer or the high-intensity battle royale format that has seen the game become one of the most popular IP’s on the planet. However, we would argue that the reason so many players stick around is due to the wide range of cosmetic goodies that one can earn through playing.

Fortnite skins are one of the key reasons why Fortnite players jump into game after game. The thrill of earning enough V-bucks to buy an awesome skin on the market or earning enough XP to get one through the battle pass is a feeling that is unrivalled by most titles. You can find something that truly lets you express yourself and shows everyone that your not just there to take part, you’re there to win and pick up a victory royale.

However, looks aren’t everything. In some cases, it can be more appealing for players to collect skins that are rare and in some cases, unobtainable for other players. It’s a way for experienced and lucky players to flex on their opponents while they try to take them down in battle. Some of these skins are incredibly rare and a lot of them are amazing looking into the bargain, so it’s worth educating yourself which skins are really rare just in case you get the opportunity to own one. So here is our list of the 42 rarest Fortnite skins.

#1 Bunny Brawler

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 v-bucks

First up we have the Easter-themed bunny costume called bunny brawler. This one features a character dressed in a bunny onesie, a freaky looking hockey mask and it even has some cute patchwork that looks exactly like Easter eggs. This one isn’t available at the moment and only becomes available around Easter time, making this one of the rarer skins on the market, so if you get lucky and find this skin on your egg hunt, don’t hesitate to pick it up.

#2 Love Ranger

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 2000 V-Bucks

So what if cupid wasn’t the cute little baby with a bow and was actually a gargoyle looking figure with a crossbow? Well, it would probably look a lot like this skin right here. It features a devilish looking dude with horns, purple skin and scars which glow pink. It’s hard to imagine a badass version of Cupid but Epic manage to do a pretty good job here. This one only really pops up in February around the Valentines day holiday, so you’ll have to hold out until then to get this one if you haven’t already.

#3 Purple Skull Trooper

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 v-bucks

This skin doesn’t look all that special and in some ways, it isn’t. It’s simply a variant of the skull trooper that is usually available in the store quite regularly. However, this purple variant was only available for purchase way back in 2017, so those who weren’t playing the game back then won’t have access to this skin at all. It’s a very rare one to see roaming around the map so if you see one on your travels, count yourself lucky.

#4 Ragnarok

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (Season 5 battle pass)

Moving onto something a little bolder and more badass. Ragnarok features a bald man with a blue beard but because it was a progressive skin you built over time, this one gradually turned into a demonic-looking figure with a bone skull on its head, glowing ice-blue eyes and a badass set of armour that looks just about impenetrable. This one is sadly not available anymore as you had to build it during season five, making this skin one of the rarest and desirable skins around.

#5 Codename E.L.F

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 v-bucks

Now we have another holiday-themed skin in the form of codename elf. This one sees you dressed as a chiselled looking Santa’s helper with a classic green and yellow costume. The skin also has slick blonde hair and a black belt around the waste. This one only really appears around Christmas time, making it a rare skin that only the more active and observant players will get the chance to purchase. So if you really fancy grabbing this one, be sure to put it on your wish list and maybe father Christmas will help you out.

#6 Rex

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 2000 V-Bucks (season 3 battle pass)

If you liked the Jurassic Park movie series, then you’ll be a big fan of this design. This one uses a costume party design to make this one look like a last-minute Halloween costume and in all honesty, it is equal parts hilarious as it is fantastic. It uses a green, orange and red colour scheme and is one that you must add to your collection. Sadly though, if you weren’t around in season three to earn this one then youre out of luck on that front, which is why this little number is a very rare skin in Fortnite.

#7 Wukong

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 2000 V-bucks

Who wouldn’t want to be a monkey warrior? Well, with the Wukong skin, you can be just that. The skin showcases a very hairy monkey dressed in royal red and gold battle armour and even has very off putting, piercing yellow eyes. This one was available around the Chinese New Year and likely will be again next year, but until then this will remain one of the more rare offerings on this list. So when that time rolls around again, be sure you’re on the lookout for the Wukong skin.

#8 Dante and Rosa

  • Rarity: epic
  • Cost: 1500 V-bucks

If you want to celebrate the Mexican tradition of the day of the dead, then you’ll need a sugar skull themed skin that’s fit for the job. Dante and Rosa are the male and female versions of these skins and they look absolutely fantastic. They both feature stunning detailed outfits that stick close to the Mexican culture and their faces are painted like sugar skulls. Then to top it off, each skin is topped off with a rose. These are wonderful skins that are perfect for the holidays which is really the only time your likely to get these skins, making them a real rarity along the player base.

#9 Sparkle Specialist

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 V-bucks

Now we have an entry that takes us to the era of funk and disco. The sparkle specialist features a character dressed in tight, shiny trousers, a glittering tube top and a pair of rad lace-up boots too. It’s an awesome skin but it hasn’t been seen on the market since season two and therefore is one of the rarest skins out there. There has been no indication as to when or if this skin will ever resurface again but we suggest you keep your eyes peeled. Disco never dies so why should this skin.

#10 The Ice King

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 v-bucks (season 7 battle pass)

Now we have the Ice King, a skin that has clearly taken inspiration from the Night King from Game Of Thrones. His costume is reminiscent of the raven skin with a more cold colour palette that makes this one infinitely cooler. The ice king also has sharp icicle horns and piercing blue eyes that tie this look together to make this one of the most desirable skins in the whole game but unfortunately, if you weren’t playing around the time season seven dropped then it is very unlikely you’ll get a chance to own this one.

#11 Renegade Raider

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 v-bucks

Now we have a real blast from the past, the renegade raider skin. This one is a variant of the basic skin and sees the player adorn some war paint and a couple of other fun details such as a pilots hat and some leather accents. It’s not the most amazing skin, especially with what is available now but because it is so old and never went on sale after season one, it’s very unlikely that you’ll see this skin on your travels. It may not look like much but its one of the rarest in the game so show some love.

#12 Dark Voyager

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (season 3 battle pass)

If you’re on the hunt for a skin that’s out of this world, then why not use the dark voyager skin. This one was an earlier skin you could unlock in season three via the battle pass and features a jet black astronaut costume with glowing orange accents. It’s perfect for staying hidden in the darker areas of the map and looking great while you sneak around in the shadows. You may have this one lying around from your earlier playing days, so check your inventory and pop this one on for your next game.

#13 Double Helix

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: $400 for a Nintendo Switch

If this was a list of the most expensive skins in Fortnite, this one would be right at the top of the pile. To get your hands on the Double Helix skin, you’ll have had to buy a Nintendo Switch with the double helix bundle which is no longer available in normal retailers. It’s a rare skin because of the expense you have to have incurred just to own it and for that reason, you should stop and emote salute anyone who passes you by wearing this classy skin.

#14 Rook

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (season 5 battle pass)

What can we say about this one? Well, picture a hall monitor that takes their job really seriously. We mean like wearing a bulletproof vest and a belt lined with shotgun shells kind of serious. Yeah, you get the picture. This one is a no-nonsense woman with business attire who has her hair tied back and is ready to knock you on your ass. Girl power, am I right? You can’t pick up this female boss skin because it was available in the season five battle pass, so if you missed this one, we’re afraid it’s tough luck.

#15 Royale Bomber

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: $500 for a PS4 or $50 for a Dualshock 4 controller

This skin used to be much rarer than it is now but its skin ranks highly on the rarity scale. To own this one at the time of release, you had to buy a particular PS4 bundle much like the Double Helix skin. However, this skin would later be bundled with dualshock4 controllers. This lowered the price to own this skin but it’s still a skin that is rarely seen when playing Fortnite. It’s a shame too because its a really stylish one as well.

#16 Crackshot

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 2000 V-bucks

It might be the back end of Summer at the time of writing, but it’s never to early to get into the Christmas spirit. However, this skin will give you the chills so hard you’ll think it’s Halloween. This one features a madman dressed in a nutcracker uniform complete with a helmet or a manic looking nutcracker. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a little bit of nutcracker based psychotic rage. It’s not available to purchase right now but you never know, this might come back into rotation around the holidays, so keep an eye out.

#17 Honor Guard

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: $800 for a Samsung Honor View 20

What? Another skin that was sold exclusively with a really expensive third party product? You bet! This time it’s a Samsung product that you would have to buy in order to get this stylish blue skin. It’s a skin that showcases a stylish biker suit, blue helmet and other small details but when compared to the otherit’svice exclusive skins, its a bit dull in comparison. If you really like this one you can still get your hands on it today but it will cost you a pretty penny.

#18 Ghoul Trooper

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 V-bucks

This one is a variation of the default woman’s skin which was a promotional skin for Halloween 2017. This one was made before the hoards of fans flocked to the series so it explains why it’s a little bit more subdued in terms of design but it is a pretty rare one to get your hands on and it’s also a fun one to break out in October, the spookiest month of the year.

#19 Yee-Haw

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 v-bucks

Now we have a skin that was very much in demand when it arrived in season 6. This one is the default skin except they are wearing an inflatable costume that shows them riding the Fortnite mascot piñata. It hasn’t been on the market for quite a long time now making it one of the rarer skins on this list but rest assured, this one is too good looking to not make another appearance, so keep your eyes peeled for this one.

#20 SGT Green Clover

  • Rarity: Uncommon
  • Cost: 800 V-bucks

One of the more reasonably priced skins out there but one that’s still loved by many. This leprechaun themed skin is perfect for Paddy’s Day or simply for causing mischief and urging those around you to follow the rainbow. It’s a shame for them that you’ll be waiting at the end of the rainbow with a shotgun in hand to steal their loot. You can’t get this one right now but you’ll likely see this one appear around March time, so have your pint of Guinness ready for the occasion.

#21 Backbone

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 V-bucks

Hey, you remember when the Undertaker went through that badass stage where he rode motorbikes and looked a little bit ridiculous. Well with this skin you could adorn a classy black bandana, your finest leather and role play as the dead man himself. We aren’t sure that was the invention but we are going with it. This one hasn’t been seen on the market since season five so its a pretty rare one if you happen to own it. So be sure to dust off the cobwebs on this one and let it out for a match or two.

#22 Peely

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 950 V-Bucks (season 8 battle pass)

It’s Peely in all its potassium filled glory. This one is pretty straight forward. It’s a dude in a banana costume that’s a little bit peeled at the top. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to be bothering him too much judging by his smiling face. This one was a season eight battle pass reward but you can’t get this one unless you earned it that season but you never know, it might pop up again. So keep your eyes peeled. Get it? Because it’s a banana? Hilarious.

#23 Far Out Man

  • Rarity: epic
  • Cost: 1500 v-bucks

Now we have the 1960’s hippie-inspired Far Out Man Skin. This one features a man dressed in tye-dye, a leather vest, a floral headband and some sick long hair too. This one is a skin that was released on the market in season five but has been absent for over 700 days. Hopefully, we will get access to this skin again eventually as we have waited patiently for so long but as of this moment, it is one of the rarest skins in the game.

#24 Black Knight

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (season 2 battle pass)

Now we have the Black Knight skin. This one features a mysterious looking figure dressed in a dark attire and wearing a shield with a coat of arms emblazoned on the front. It’s perhaps not the most detailed or luxurious of the tier 70 battle pass rewards but it is rather rare considering you could only pick this up in season two. So if you’re an original player, you might want to stick this one on and show your experience and pedigree in your next game as this is one of the rarest skins in the game due to its age.

#25 Absolute Zero

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 V-bucks

Now we have a retro skin that’s been out of the marketplace for quite a while now. This one showcases a skin that is perfect for snowy conditions, taking advantage of artic camouflage to create a skin that is ice cold in presentation. Sadly though, this skin hasn’t been on the market in well over a year. It may have had its last hurrah considering how long it has stuck around but remain hopeful, this one could become available again.

#26 Galaxy

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: $400 Samsung product

Now this one is one of the more rare skins on the roster simply down to the means of acquiring this skin. To get this one, you had to buy a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S4 tablet to unlock this amazingly designed skin. This skin features a guy who is completely decked out with an intergalactic design showcasing a wealth of stars nestled amongst the cosmos. It’s easily one of the rarest skins in the game so be sure to wear it as a badge of honour.

#27 Kitbash

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 v-bucks

Now we have a rather strange looking skin making its way onto the list in the form of Kitbash. This skin is a collection of random items like toasters, toilet rolls and banana peels all lumped together to create a literal trash robot. We are all for recycling so this is a great skin in our book. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been available since way back in season seven, so you may not have the opportunity to pick this one up anytime soon. Just bide your time and maybe, just maybe, you can have your own trash robot inspired skin.

#28 Chief Hopper

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 V-bucks

This is one for all you sci-fi fans out there. This skin takes the likeness of Chief Hopper, a character from the popular Netflix original show, Stranger Things. The skin really nails the design of the character perfectly complete with his iconic hat and his rugged facial features. This one was a premium skin to mark the release of the third season of the show, so you’ll struggle to get your hands on this one now. You have to admit though, no pesky Demogorgon is going to mess with you in this skin.

#29 Twistie

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 V-bucks

Now we have another skin from the season seven era, twistie. This skin is inspired by the wacky flailing tube men and women you often see outside car dealerships and honestly, its silliness makes it a great choice for any player that enjoys a wacky, over the top look. This skin from the hot air collection hasn’t been seen in quite a while with an absence from the marketplace that has lasted for well over a year now. So if you are on the hunt for a silly skin to add to your collection, you might have to settle for something else.

#30 Axiom

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 V-Bucks

Are you a man of the X-men franchise? Well, you might enjoy this awesome skin that borrows assets from a popular resident of the Xavier household, Cyclops. It uses the same blue and yellow colour scheme as the X-men character uses for his suit and although the goggles don’t look quite the same, you can see that the idea is very much the same. This is a great skin for someone looking to role play as a mutant hero, however, it hasn’t been on the market in a while so you may have to wait quite a while before we see this skin again.

#31 Marshmello

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 V-bucks

Yes, that’s right, the world-renowned DJ, Marshmello. This one showcases the artist’s signature headpiece with its stylish logo spray-painted on top. This comes with a set of pants and a shirt that are simply plain white with little else to speak of. Its an awesome skin but it hasn’t been on the market for well over a year now. If Marshmello drops a sick track or a new album you can probably expect this one to come back into circulation but otherwise, you may have to do without.

#32 Dusk

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (season 6 battle pass)

Now we have the dusk skin. This one serves up a stylish and menacing-looking female vampire. The costume is a skimpy black dress with bat wings included in the garment. She also has blood-red eyes, pale skin that matches her white hair and she even has a purple dip dye going on because you know, she’s edgy. This one is perfect for all you scene kids out there that want to go back to a better time. Sadly, you’ll have to have earned this one in the season six battle pass, so if you didn’t, we’re afraid you won’t be able to become a creature of the night, making this a rare skin to own.

#33 Tech Ops

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 V-bucks

Have you been thinking that Fortnite needed a little more stealth, perhaps an injection of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell? Well, if that’s the case then boy do we have the skin for you. This one showcases a character dressed in khaki green and black clothing and night vision goggles, completing the espionage look. Its a great skin but not one you can just go out and grab. In fact, it hasn’t been on the market for well over 400 days now, so you may be waiting a very long time before we see this one on the market again.

#34 Drift

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-Bucks (season 5 battle pass)

Now we have the drift skin which you acquire at tier one of the season five battle pass. This one is another progressive skin that grows in aesthetic value as you play. By the end, you are left with a stunning hipster-looking masked character in a baggy black red and yellow coat. This is an iconic skin within the Fortnite franchise and you can see why with the modern meets casual vibe it gives off. It’s a pretty rare skin as you have to have built the entire skin to completion and you have to have been around since season five. So if you have this one, be sure to wear it around like a badge of honour.

#35 Ruckus

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 V-bucks

This one is mad max meets mad clown and we are living for it. The ruckus skin has your character dressed in raider style spiked armour and an intimidating gas mask with glowing yellow eyes. Then to top it all off, there is blue curly hair popping out the back of the mask. Is that you Krusty? This one isn’t easy to get your hands on sadly as it hasn’t been on the market for almost two years now which is a real shame. We could see this one making an appearance at Halloween so be sure to keep an eye out around the spooky holiday.

#36 Hollow Head

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 950 V-Bucks (Season 6 battle pass)

Here’s another Halloween themed skin but this one really ups the ante on the spook factor. This one features a guy with leather armour and a massive pumpkin helmet that emits a glowing green light. The face is super spooky and the eyes even seem to give off green embers too. You could only grab this one in season six so if you missed your chance then you’ll have to wait until it comes back into rotation, however, due to its links to the holiday season, you may be able to pick it up then if you’re lucky.

#37 Midnight Ops

  • Rarity: Rare
  • Cost: 1200 v-bucks

Next up we have a skin that dates all the way back to season three. The midnight ops skin features a cool looking character with a red neckerchief, a black robotic arm and slick black metallic armour. It’s a subtle look that really oozes class. This one isn’t easy to get your hands on as it hasn’t appeared on the market in almost two years but we are still holding out hope that we will see the stealthy skin again sometime soon.

#38 Dire

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (Season 6 battle pass)

Is that a full moon tonight? It must be as this skin features a gruesome werewolf with glowing blood orange eyes, sharp claws capable of ripping your opponents to shreds, and if that doesn’t work you can always use the katana on your back. This is a perfect skin for solo players who prefer to be the lone wolf. This one was only available in the season six battle pass though, so if you missed your chance then you might not be able to acquire this gem.

#39 Reaper

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-bucks (season 3 battle pass)

Now we have a skin perfect for any would-be marksman out there. Of course, it’s the iconic John Wick inspired skin, Reaper. This one includes a smart suit, John Wick’s long hairstyle and it really does a fantastic job of representing the physical likeness of Keanu Reeves perfectly. You may not be able to match John Wick’s insane skills with firearms but this skin gives you the chance to try. It might be tricky, however, because this one was a season three only reward, so if you missed your chance then you may not get another.

#40 Wildcard

  • Rarity: Epic
  • Cost: 1500 V-bucks

If youre looking for a skin that could easily double up as a villain in the Batman or James Bond franchises, then look no further than wildcard. This one is a man dressed in a slick grey suit with a painted white face and a red diamond painted over his eye. This one was only available during the season five high stakes event making this one of the rarer items on the roster. There may be a return for the event in the future but for now, this remains a real rarity.

#41 Lynx

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 950 V-Bucks (Season 7 battle pass)

If you’re looking for something that has that slick black panther vibe of the omega skin, but also with a more feminine, Catwoman-esque style, Then you need the lynx skin. This one is a jet black cat suit complete with a tail and ears for good measure. This one was only available within the season seven battle pass though, so if you missed your chance it’s tough luck we’re afraid.

#42 Omega

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Cost: 2000 V-bucks

Then lastly, we have the Omega skin. This snazzy skin takes the ideas made popular by the dark voyager skin and tailors the suit to make it a costume that would be ideal for any mysterious villain out there. This comes from the superheroes and villains season so it’s hardly surprising that this one looks as menacing as it does. The suit is jet black and contrasts this with glowing orange accents. This one is no longer available but if you’re a long time player, there is a good chance this one is gathering dust in your inventory. So be sure to rummage through and if you can make use of this older skin.
