Fortnite Best Skins Ranked (March 2021) – Best Outfits Ever!

We're taking a look at the best Fortnite skins that the game has to offer!

Our Best Fortnite Skins List features the top rated skins from our community! These are the highest vote getting outfits in Fortnite, and if you disagree with the result you can rate them yourself and change the rankings!

The skins in Fortnite have been a big part of the game's success! While most games of this nature tend to be first person and you can barely see yourself, this game is in third person so you are always looking at your cosmetics. That means the skin you have on is a lot more important, and you can personalize it in a variety of ways.

The list below features the best skins that have been rated by our community! If you want to influence the rankings of this list, you can rate all of the skins via our Fortnite Skins Gallery.

What skin is the best in Fortnite?

According to our readers, it looks like Midas is the best skin in Fortnite right now. You do get some fluctuation on the list, with Elite Agent, Drift, Lynx, and Catalyst all jockeying for the top position, but it looks like the man with the golden touch is occupying the spot at the moment.

While there's some newcomers to the list, you'll notice that skins like Fishstick, iKONIK, Elite Agent, Drift, and some others have maintained high spots on the list for a very long time.

Fortnite Best Back Bling

It shouldn't be too surprising to see the Wolfpack sit as king of the back blings. It is a super clean look, and just really looks awesome on a variety of skins. Shields have always been a popular option, so Banner Shield is a clear winner. The ability to customize it is a great bonus, and allows you to match any skin. The Galactic Disc is also a favorite, even if it is quite rare due to it being part of the Galaxy set.

Fortnite Best Emotes

You'll mostly find dances in the best emotes category. Electro Swing is currently doing well, and is obtainable in the shop, which is great news for most players. Billy Bounce is the one I've seen talked about the most, I always have people asking when it will return in the comments. Orange Justice remains high up on the list, which is great to see because it's one of my favorites.

Fortnite Best Wraps

Of the top Wraps, there's an interesting dynamic going on. You have Magma which is extremely popular, and has a great animation with it. Then you have the Boogeyman Wrap which is one of the most simple designs. It's hard to hate on the all-black wrap though, it just looks good on all weapons and vehicles. The rest of the list is mostly animated, so simplicity has not won out overall.

Fortnite Best Gliders

While there's been quite a few additions from Chapter 2 Season 5, it looks like some old umbrellas have made it onto the list. These can generally only be obtained by winning a game during a particular season, so they aren't easy to obtain if you just started out in the game.

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. If I had a locker bundle, it would be
    – Brite Bomber
    – Glitter Blaster Wrap
    – Dragacorn Glider
    – Star Power Emote

  2. Ok ok wait your saying Drift is 12 and people voted it wow and they don’t vote my man alpine ace oh well guess someone put scenario in 3rd now I won’t use the emote because of it also where is the floss i see so many people use it even me and it not there it might just my servers i see it in tbh it depends on the SBM (Skilled Based Matchmaking) that makes so of this popular but i bet most of these are up there because people play party royale and that is why

    1. Drift is number 1 right now

  3. Hey Mark does it look like the fallen love ranger is coming back?

    1. I think so at some point. I’m surprised it didn’t appear round about now for Valentine’s!

  4. PLS do contrails I wanna get as much as I can and all I need are contrails

    1. There you go 🙂

    2. I’ll see what I can do!

  5. My top 10

    1-. Drift
    2-. Vi
    3-. Catalyst
    4-. TheGrefg
    5- Joker
    6-. Lynx
    7-. Lachlan
    8-. Mystique
    9-. Ikonik
    10-. Renegade Raider

  6. Tbh, if i was going to rate the best fortnite skins it would be
    legendary: Joltara (I know this is over used but i feel like all legendary skins are overpriced but this one is worth it
    Epic: Elmira (just love the styles for this skin)
    Rare: Starlie (Amazing skin that isnt over used and tbh this is the best rarity filled with so many clean skins that arent too simple but not too crazy
    Uncommon: Bullseye (so many styles that work for everything and the pink style is clean)
    And yes i knag that all my skins are female, and that because i just like them better, it really feels better and not to bulky. If i had to choose, i would choose mezmer because it has 2 styles that are so nice and smooth. Also i didnt decide to add battlepass skins becafse that would take forever to choose. Rate my opinion all of you are gling to say im a sweat xd. Also Mark quick question: for all the pages with every skin and every pickaxe etc can you add an option to sort from worst to best, because i want to see what everyone thinks and it is kind of annoying scrolling down 40 pages. have a nice day if you took the time to read this!

    1. I don’t know if that’s doable sadly. I’ll look into it though!

  7. i know, i dont like mave and menace either they are too bulky

  8. My fav skins are very different.
    1- Chief Hopper
    2- Glimmer
    3- Michonne
    4- Riot
    5- Polar Patroller
    6- Razor
    7- Kratos
    8- Sleuth
    9- The Devourer
    10- Ludwig

    I really dont like:
    1- Soccer Skins
    2- Aura
    3- Fade
    4- Jennifer Walters
    5- The Scientist

    1. Yea tryhard skins like aura, soccer skins etc arent my fav, their just soo overused.

      1. I Agree, my favorite skins:
        -Elite Agent
        -Skull trooper(Purple Varient)
        -Dark Bomber

    2. My fav is Midas then all the mecha team leaders then my banana boy pealy and sith trooper

  9. c’mon guys catalyst is a good skin, but do we really think its the best in the entire game?

    1. Yeah I think catalyst isnt the best

      1. It really doesn’t matter what you think, no offense but it’s the truth, this list is how the community voted on cosmetics.

  10. EPIC: yeet208707
    My combo
    Skin: Fade (With mask and cloak)
    Glider: Comet Clasher
    Back Bling: Dark Six String
    Wrap: Either Dark Angular Shift or Midas’ Shadow

  11. I mean *isn’t* sorry

  12. There really should be a worst-rated list instead of going to each list of items and going over and over to get to the worst rated.

  13. I really like Kondor because he reminds me of stealth reflex and the green style reminds me of reflex. Very underrated skin. If you unlock kondor in the battlepass I recommend using him. Him in my opinion is the best chapter 2 season 5 skin.

    1. Well i think Menace is really cool. Well first of all he is from rome and i love rome! Well im on tier 42 so still need a lot of levels… Could help me get to earn lot o levels cuz i am having trouble leveling up.
      Epic: MrKitCatFace1213

      1. this is how I rank all the skins from best to worst

        1. yes for real

  14. My favorite locker combo:
    Skin: Mezmer
    Back Bling: Adventure Pack (Green)
    Pickaxe: Vizion Striker (Two Handed)
    Glider: Green Eagle
    Skydive Trail: Stardrop
    Wrap: Meowstermind

    1. Forgot to add emote.
      Emote: Bhangra Boogie

  15. Venom, silver surfer, ghost rider, galaxy scout best skins

  16. Skin: iKONIK
    BB: Galactic Disc
    Pickaxe: Minty

    legendary skin: midas
    epic skin: ikonik
