Fortnite Best Skins Ranked (September 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.

Fortnite Best Skins

Here's a look at the best outfits of all-time across battle passes and item shops throughout the entirety of Fortnite's history. While there's some newcomers to the list, you'll notice that skins like Drift, Calamity and John Wick,  and some others have maintained high spots on the list for a very long time.

However, the new Battle Pass Skins from Chapter 2 Season 6 have all been taking the top spots!

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.

Fortnite Best Loading Screen

Nobody likes loading screens; we know that. Sure some games have helpful tips like "Kill things faster to win" or "To win the game just win," But Fortnite allows you to choose an epic (mainly uncommon) loading screen for you to gaze at while loading happens!

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. Can you do best boy skins like you did with the girl skins list

  2. Midas really does not deserve #1

    1. Thats your opinion. Among myself and the most members of the community, Midas is very well loved, so for me, it isn’t a suprise to see it at number one.

    2. Its your opinion. According to mine he does. I dont like that ,,sci-fi” effects skins, or boring soccer skins. Midas is elegant skin at all. That gold effect is more than enough, I would not really need it.

      1. I feel the complete opposite, I hate when the guns turn gold, and as someone who doesn’t have a problem with sweat/overused skins, I will say he’s the best tier 100 of chapter 2.

  3. Can you guys add the Build Up emote, I search it up and nothing pops up.

    1. Sure, let me have a look. I’ve been on vacation so it’s a bit behind!

  4. I kinda agree with this list to be honest my top five favorite skins are Vendetta, Cuddle Team Leader, Prodigy, Cabbie and Black Knight I like way more kinds and I have a lot of favorites

  5. Cool i had been trying to find these kind of simple lists.

  6. Yo nice list

    1. yo thanks, I appreciate it!

  7. Honestly, my favorite skin that I have is Artic Assassin

  8. coooool

  9. Since I don’t like popular skins my top 10 I use is very different.

    1- Riot (my main skin since it was released)
    2- Chief Hopper
    3- Hunter
    4- Lord X
    5- Glimmer
    6- Snow Drift
    7- Ludwig
    8- Lucky Rider
    9- The Devourer
    10- Kratos

  10. I can see why midas is number 1 but my main skin is drift

    1. Why should Midas be 1, I can name 100 better skins than Midas like Omega. Maybe best tier 100 of chapter 2 but not best skin.

      1. That Is true

  11. i do not know why midas was 1st place i hate midas i think that eternal voyager should get 1st place for sure

    1. Midas should be at the top. However, Eternal voyager is a really cool skin, and should maybe be top 20

    2. In my opinion Midas on the top is OK, but Eternal Voyager should not be even in the first 100 best skins. Its attitudinal at all, but younger players are influenced by streamers more, like the case of horrible Star Wand pickaxe that became ultra tryhard.

    3. True but I disagree about both Midas and Eternal Voyager being number 1. Our favorite / main skin will always be #1 for us. For example, I would put Brite Bomber at #1 because shes my favorite skin.

  12. I find it ironic that the default dance is on the tope emotes.

  13. Heslo, can I delete my votes and vote again? Can you explain that? Voting system is tied with an IP address, I suppose.

    1. Hey, I’m not sure of the answer to this at the moment but we’re looking it it, thanks!

  14. Hi, can you also do a category for loading screens? I really like them and would be interested to see which ones people like the most!

    1. Sure thing 😀

  15. Yes Mark, Isabelle did released today. Though OMG I did see some theories that it could be Princess Fishstick
    now is the time to……. panic!!!!!!!

    1. I did hear about Princess Fishstick! I am intrigued!

      1. I know, how would you feel if it was? I’ll feel disappointed

        1. It wouldn’t bother me, but I understand why it would disappoint some!

  16. POV: People rate stuff like crazy in here, I mean as soon as a new cosmetic releases, it already has 5.0/5.

    1. I know, like Raz and Lara Croft and some of the battle pass skins are barely new and they’re already being called the best skins in the entire game.

      1. Ok, but you have to afmit that the soaring soul self deserves to be first for gliders.

  17. Hey Mark any info on April Crew Pack?

    1. Nothing so far. I know people are hoping for Isabelle to the one, but I’ve heard nothing so far!

      1. I agree, it should be Isabelle but they usually announce it one week before the new month right?

        1. They normally do! However, normally Fortnite Crew cosmetics are encrypted, Isabelle wasn’t. If there is an update before April, which there probably will be, we’ll undoubtedly get the files of the new Fortnite Crew cosmetics, which leakers will decrypt (hopefully) before the month ends.

          1. Yea sadly, also one last quick question, Surf Witch was updated to the new shop design right, which means it can return soon?

          2. A few comments have said a few things have been updated to the new shop design, even a few leaked things. I would think so, but don’t quote me ha!

  18. My favourite and ,,less favourite” choices:
    Legendary – Deadeye (I would really appreciate if Epic would make also a variant without smoke effect and without a coat, just vest on him with hat on), and Power Chord (colorful but not ,,sci-fi”), and Midas (who I dont have)
    Epic – Marigold and Neo Versa, maybe Shadow Ops
    Rare – Jawbreaker, Victoria Saint and Hush
    Uncommon – Envoy, Red Jade and Verge
    Marvel – Domino and Cuddlepool (really like that colour and material of the suit)
    Slurp Series – Slurpentine (the same as Deadeye, want version without effects)
    Gaming Icons – Kratos

    Pickaxe – Leviathan Axe, Sword of the Daywalker, Michonnes katana, Silver Strikers and maybe Oath & Sorrow
    Glider – Silver Surfers Board, and maybe Dark Glyph and Echo Jet
    Backbling – Sword of the Daywalker, Michonnes katana and maybe Spirits Pact
    Wrap – Cracked Up, Hunters Arsenal, Ho Ho Ho
    Emote – Shanty For A Squad (The Best of the Best), Say So (no, I dont have TikTok account), Electro Swing, Its Complicated

    I really hate theese ,,less favourite” items (tryhard sh*t):
    Skins: Fade, Aura, Soccer skins, Travis Scott, Manic, Dynamo, Luxe, Whistle Warrior (in this order) and horrible skin Fishstick
    Pickaxe: Star Wand (I am waiting for a hate from many of you)…its like for kindergarten
    Backbling: Bobo (mainly used as a combo with common skins)

    1. I really like your list, jawbreaker is my favorite skin, and i dont like maining tryhard items.

      1. Thanks, friend.
        One thing I wrote wrong – wanna Deadeye WITHOUT effect and ripped coat, but WITH normal coat and hat. Like version before he got that effect.
        I like that this community is so active here.

  19. i want all of it!!!

  20. Best C2 S6 Skin
    -Rebirth Raven
    -Lara Croft
    -Spire Assassin
    -Agent Jones

    1. I think raz and agent jones deserve to be higher up.

      1. Raz I hate him, shirtless and barefooted, and I wouldn’t put Jones any higher or lower because I like the three skins above him more but I like him better than tarana, cluck and raz.

      2. I respect your opinion but thats just what I think.

  21. Hi mods this is not related to this page specifically but can you please fix the item shop because on Today’s Shop it always has the day before Yesterday’s Shop.

    1. Thank you for letting us know. We are working on a fix! Any more information you can still me would be great? Are you viewing the site on Desktop or Mobile?

        1. Thanks for letting me know!

  22. Hey admins can you create a top music list please?

    1. Sure! And done!

  26. 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
