Fortnite Airhead Skin

The Airhead Skin is a Rare Fortnite Outfit. It was released on June 7th, 2020 and was last available 80 days ago. It can be purchased from the Item Shop for 1,200 V-Bucks when listed. Airhead was first added to the game in Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 9.

This is a bit of an odd skin with a lot of little details all over the body. The head is just a red balloon which seems precarious in a game with bullets flying around. It features some knight like armor, and has what appears to be TNT strapped to its hips. The neck piece is interesting as well, and could be depicting a bear trap which would make this skin even a danger to itself!

If you purchased this for 1,500 V-Bucks you will receive 300 back:

  1. When it came out I was happy but when I got it I was in a lobby with like, 10 other players wearing it. Makes sense but epic should probably make this one rare

  2. Wait so in the item shop it’s listed as a season 9 skin which doesn’t make sense since it was released yesterday

    1. That listing refers to when it was added to the files.

      1. Oh so would I be right to say that Airhead is a season 2 chapter 2 skin

        1. I guess?

  3. This skin is 1500? It doesn’t even have a backbling and it’s listed as rare. Bizarre

    1. It’s going to be 1,200, it’s bugged at the moment.

  4. Will it be released this week that’s what my friend is saying

    1. WOW! Your friend is psychic or something lol

    2. It’s possible but it hasn’t been confirmed.

  5. In happy powers video he said there could be a fortnite x airheads. Did you hear about that

    1. Haven’t heard anything about it.

  6. Ive got hope for him thanks to the rarity change. Cmon Epic, he deserves freedom!

  7. Airhead’s rarity changed to Rare in the game files in v12.50

    1. Fixed, thanks.

  8. I want to get the skin because it is cool

  9. I have seen a YouTube (Ghoulz) hop into a bot lobby and some bots were using this skin!

  10. im still waiting for this skin. It got deleted or something?

  11. Was this skin removed from the files

    1. I’m not aware of it being removed.

  12. Welcome to the long time leaked skins my friend.

  13. Evident! i have news about this skin!

    Its in the Combine game mode during the Zip-line Coarse
    When you Shoot the Dummies, it says “-InsertPlayerName- Eliminated Airhead!

  14. This is the It 2 crossover skin

  15. My Son has been waiting for this skin since he first saw it back in June … he would really be happy to get it we both think it’s Crazy Cool !!!

  16. I really hope they release this skin soon..Ever since he wss leaked I’ve been saving my VBucks for this guy! I love how bizarre he is <3

  17. To be honest i dont think this skin will ever be released i mean the air hand will look kinda weird shooting guns with.

    1. Have you seen Blackheart’s hook hand?

  18. It really good

  19. i want this skin so much😁

  20. This skin has been teased for so long now to be completely honest I don’t even know if they will release it or not because the K Bop skin has been teased ever since at least Season 6 and it still hasn’t been released but Airhead is a pretty unique skin it’s not all the time that you see a skin like it.

  21. Shame no release yet. It’s pretty unique

  22. It is like kick the buddy!

  23. I was hoping for some new leaks after today’s update

  24. Do you think this could be a battle pass skin? Probably not but onesie was leaked for a while and was in the season 7 one. It looks like it could maybe be the tier 47 skin or something if it was.

  25. The hitbox is actually gonna be broken with this cuz his head is tiny

  26. You literally give players a target

  27. Imagen a selectable style where if u pop the balloon u can still play

    1. that would be BROKEN ASF

    2. That would be cool

  28. What about if you hit the head once it explode and you have to wait to get the head up again to shoot the head

    1. You are able to fight after they pop your head

  29. Cool skin

  30. He looks evil so cool
