Christmas is another holiday where Epic and Fortnite take advantage to get some great thematic cosmetics out into the game. There's been some absolutely iconic outfits that have come out of the winter months, so we'll be taking a look at all of the Fortnite Christmas skins in this post. If you're looking to get some of these skins, you'll likely get a chance once December comes around! Epic has been pretty good about bringing just about every holiday skin back to the shop once it is coming up.
Fortnite Christmas Skins List
Here's our look at all of the Christmas outfits by year!
Fortnite Christmas 2020 Skins
This batch of Christmas outfits for 2020 are a mixed bunch? Why? Because a lot of them have not been released yet. We still do have a few days left until the merry day, so the rest of the outfits may or may not be released beforehand. We're hoping they are. Though ultimate one outfit, in particular, steals the show from all previous years, and yes I'm talking about Mr. Dappermint. As that outfit is amazing.
Like last year this year is another great year for free skins, as you can get Snowmando and Frost Squad, for completing Operation Snowdown challenges.

Fortnite Christmas 2019 Skins
The batch of Christmas outfits for 2019 was much better in my opinion than the previous year. I think the Cozy Command set is a wonderful group of skins, especially the value you get for the lowest price for an outfit. You get four total styles with one skin, and most people will have enough V-Bucks to get one! Globe Shaker is a really great and unique skin option, and the globe itself is really distinct. Yule Trooper is a great concept, which gives you a bit of that Nightmare Before Christmas vibe to it. Shiver, while not directly Christmas related, is a fun winter option that stands out from other skins. It's a good one if you like the season, but don't want something directly related to the holiday.
This was also a great year because players got a chance to get two skins for free! If you opened up your gifts during Winterfest 2019, then you would eventually get Lt. Evergreen and Wooly Warrior for free!
Fortnite Christmas 2018 Skins
There's some hit and misses in the 2018 batch of Christmas skins. I think Slushy Soldier and Grimbles are a bit underrated. Slushy is a great kind of fun and goofy skin, and I think it makes a great one to squad up with if you've got friends who also have it. Grimbles just gets the concept right, and I also really love the evil style version that is particularly demonic. Krampus is also a pretty unique outfit, with a lot of great details. I would like to see it get some additional styles.
The rest aren't bad, but they kind of miss the mark for me. Glimmer is a well-done skin, I just don't know if it brings enough to the table to be a Legendary.
Fortnite Christmas 2017 Skins
To kick off the Christmas celebrations in Fortnite, they game out of the gate very strong in 2017! This is just a great group of skins that have stood the test of time. You've got the awesome looking Ginger Bread outfits with Ginger Gunner and Merry Marauder. I love how much detail they have, while maintaining simplicity. Nog OPS is another simplistic skin, but it's so well-done thematically, and it just scream Christmas without being over the top. Codename ELF was another great outfit, and was highly sought after because it didn't return in 2018. It got thrown into a bundle in 2019 and even got a new style added to it.
Crackshot to me is a great skin as well! It's a bit underrated in my opinion, but it really nails the concept. It even got three new styles with it that give you some great options to play with!
