Fortnite Skull Trooper Skin

The Skull Trooper Skin is an Epic Fortnite Outfit from the Skull Squad set. It was released on October 30th, 2017 and was last available 265 days ago. It can be purchased from the Item Shop for 1,500 V-Bucks when listed. Skull Trooper was first added to the game in Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 1.

Skull Trooper was released during Halloween in 2017 and I believe hit the shop twice. It finally made its return during the Halloween 2018 season. This is the skin the popular streamer Myth was known for using most of the time.

Skull Trooper is so old that it cost the original 1,200 V-Bucks back when it was released.

Skull Trooper Styles

There are two new style options when it comes to Skull Trooper. First, there's a green glow that's available to everyone. Second, there's a purple glow that is exclusive to players who owned the skin previously. So, if you are an OG player mad about Skull Trooper returning you will have that as a unique feature to show off your old ways.

Skull Trooper Challenges

Not only are there new styles, you can unlock the long leaked Ghost Portal Back Bling. To accomplish that, you'll need to complete some Skull Trooper challenges. Check out our detailed post on this: Skull Trooper Challenges List Guide!

  22. Epic Games will gain rather than lose if they brought back the skull trooper for one time only. There is a loads of fans out there who are prepare to pay big money for this skin up to £100. If epic brought this back they would make more now than the first time and they are seriously sitting on a gold mine with this skin. Plz bring it back you would make a lot of fans happy.

    1. This is not epic games
