Fortnite Rarest Skins List – Images of the Rarest & Hard to Find Skins of Fortnite!

We're looking at the rarest skins in Fortnite!

If you are looking for Fortnite's Rarest Skins then we've got a full list of them right here. While the battle pass skins are unavailable, you will be able to get a chance at grabbing some of these in the item shop!

Rare skins in Fortnite has been a controversial subject. Players that have them don't want them to return because they want the reward of being around in the beginning of the game (OGs). Newer players obviously want to get a chance to grab all the skins they like.

Epic has made an interesting compromise for the Skull Trooper skin. This was a very rare skin and hadn't been in the shop for a year. When they brought it back, they gave OG owners of the skin a style that will not be available for people who buy the skin new. This is a nice way to reward older players, while not keeping popular skins away from people who just got into the game.

Rarest Fortnite Skins & Cosmetics

These are skins you CANNOT get anymore. They won't be back again unless Epic changes their policy completely. I'm only including the skins from the very first season of Fortnite because we know for sure these are rare. Trying to determine whether or not certain Battle Pass Seasons are rare is impossible. These skins were available for purchase if you got your Season level to a certain point. You could then purchase them with V-Bucks.

Rarest Fortnite Item Shop Cosmetics

Now, these skins are ones you might actually have a chance to get. These are being determined automatically based on the last time they were seen in the item shop. Do NOT ask if a certain skin is rare, there's no way to tell in any real practical sense. Do let me know if one of the dates is wrong on the list so I can correct it!

    1. I checked elsewhere and our date is accurate. Let me know if you have a link to somewhere to correct us!

  1. Hey Evident should Glimmer and Krampus be on the list because it has been almost 119 days since they have been out so I would recommend you put them on the list.

        1. Please read the text in the post: “These are being determined automatically based on the last time they were seen in the item shop.”

          There’s a limit to how many skins are shown, and Krampus just falls under the limit. I’m not sure why this is complicated.

  2. its kinda a curse for me because i wasted so much money on majority of every skin back in season 1-2 cause i loved the game but now its just like…..meh… you know. i still buy battle pass’s and the v-buck i earn i save up and buy skins of my personal liking. overall fortnite is one of those games i still enjoy, mainly the cartoony style and gameplay, people can say what they want about the game i dont give a DAMN if im playing a 7 year old game (and how thicc these female skins keep getten might as well make it rated T).

  3. I wouldn’t mind not seeing other skins/gliders/emotes to not be rotated back in.(i.g. Shade, Glimmer, Take 14, etc.) Like it or not, certain items are either highly underrated or just not appreciated enough.

  4. I’m not questioning you or anything because you’re probably right but I could’ve swore that midnight ops was last out much more recent than that

  5. Rarest skins of all time on fortnite wouldnt you agree evident on this list?

    Rarest:

    1. Recon expert
    2. Renegade raider or Ghoul Trooper or assualt trooper.
    3. Skull Trooper purple1 variant
    4. Codename E.L.F.
    5. Black Knight

      1. I have Renegade Raider with Raiders Revenage axe. Ghoul Trooper, assault one Glider, Mako. A recon expert is super cool you have, I have never seen one in game.

    1. i want the black night and the Renegade raider or Ghoul Trooper or assualt trooper. thats it all i wish to have is those skines i listed

    1. There’s no minimum amount of days, I just have it to show 40 skins that haven’t been seen the longest. 20 for everything else. I mean, a good bar would be probably 100+ days.

  6. In my opinion I think the Blue Team Leader is a rare skin. First you can only get it if you have a Playstation and ps4 plus. Ps4 plus is $60. A play station is $299. Plus if i´m not wrong they were released in season 2 all the way through 4.

    1. Please read the description, there’s no way to tell if the majority of skins are rare. We know for sure the first season stuff is rare, but anything else is mostly a guess. Also, you shouldn’t be considering the cost of a PlayStation, most people already owned a PS4 at the time. No one was buying it specifically for the skin. If you were going to do that, you should calculate how much a PC would be when figuring out rarity.

    2. The Blue team leader wasn’t available during season 4 since the 2nd PlayStation plus bundle came out

    3. Blue Team Leader is not even close to rare, it’s extremely common and PS4s are also common as it’s the number 1 console in purchases that can play Fortnite.

    1. That information is in the post, I’ve only included the first “season” because we know for sure that’s rare. It’s impossible to make a judgement on rarity in terms of any other battle pass. I would have to set arbitrary dates on when to add past battle passes, it just doesn’t make sense.

  7. I purchased most of the new Halloween skin and I haven’t seen many people using them can you think they could become rare?

    1. With the current system Fortnite has for bringing back rare skins it is likely that all of the skins from Fortnitemares 2018 will be coming back. The only skin I can guarantee will be coming back is Deadfire, since he was the events primary skin.

    1. Clutch Axe? It was in the shop in October, it’s on the edge I would say. I’ll probably have to figure out some kind of better method for these.

  8. Just because it’s rare it doesn’t meant it’s GOOD. It goes by personal preference. I hate th mullet marauder and I would never buy it no matter how rare. Then again I love Power Chord and she’s generally considered a bad skin and not too rare I don’t think. Like what you like.

  9. Hey evident do u think venturion will ever be on this list? I don’t particularly like it but I bought it when it was first out and it hasn’t been out very many times since so I was just wondering

  10. Why do you not include emotes on this list, are there simply none to put on? (Spike It and Denied will be on this list soon if that is the case, guaranteed.)

  11. how about the “yee-haw!” skin? is that kinda rare since it was out once in season six and no one bought it?

  12. I have twitch prime pack one and its so good and I don’t think that many people own it
    don’t you think twitch prime pack two rare by now

    1. I’m seeing comments like this a lot. Just because you haven’t seen a skin doesn’t mean it’s rare. I use the amount of times it has been in the shop and the last time it was seen to decide what makes the list.

  13. Nice List dude!
    How rare do you reckon the SGT. Green Clover and Pot O’ Gold are from 1 to 10, I bought the two as my first non battle-pass skin and when they first came out. I really hope they wont release them since that is probably my most OG skin. Thanks

    1. out of all the Halloween skins i can guarantee Deadfire will be the only one not coming out until next Fortnitemares.

  14. Some good skins that could be added to the list are Eon, Royale Bomber, and the NVIDIA skin. Not many people are going to drop lots of cash for any of those skins. Also those skins are exclusive to certain platforms. The Royale Bomber is only available in the US and UK. The Eon only comes in an Xbox bundle. The NVIDIA skin is a laptop set-up, something like that. Those skins are very expensive and their cost are much more than $60+. I have Royale Bomber and I rarely see one. I see Purple Skull Troopers the same or less than a Royale Bomber. The Eon skin I see a lot more because the Xbox is still available unlike the Royale Bomber (The Royale Bomber is still in stock in Europe (I think)). The NVIDIA skin (IDK the name) is very rare because the price is a staggering $300+. These are my suggestions lol if you want to make a specific list naming the category, “Promotional Skins” or something 🙂

    Great List as always. Very reliable. I’m glad to see Wild Card, Star-Spangled Ranger, and more.

    1. Ever heard of the Backbone skin, (I think that’s the name) it’s the male biker skin. I’ve NEVER seen that skin. I think no one bought it lol

  15. i suggest adding mullet marauder, since hes been gone 150+ days, and removing Modern, since it was back a couple of days ago

  16. I have star spangled trooper and some other skins on this list. How long has it been since star spangled trooper came out?

  17. I think wild card should be here (1 week away from 4 months) , the hippies shouldn’t be here (1 month) , and maybe the dead of the dead skins and dead fires in 1-2 months (2 months)

    but that is just what I think.It’s okay if you don’t agree

    1. You’re right about the hippy skins, I had misinformation on their last time in the shop. I added Wild Card, and we’ll see about the Day of the Dead skins in the future.

  18. I think the Whistle warrior is gonna be rare I mean it came out only on the NFL event but it’s an uncommon so hopefully it will come out again

    1. August 15th, 2018 was the last time it was in the shop. You can click on the image of each skin to learn more information about it.

  19. i have the Bunnymoon skin never seen it ingame and im pretty sure its not gonna come out again until next halloween. also the patch patroller is pretty rare

  20. Can I just say, you need to add Wild Card, Deadfire, John Wick, or the Blue Squire/ Royale Knight to the skins section because I’ve been playing since release on Xbox and I’m a STW founder and don’t have a single skin listed. I have stuff from every other category so I guess it just bugs me lol

    1. Wild Card and Deadfire are not rare yet, they weren’t out long ago. Wild Card in particular was pretty popular. Blue Squire and Royale Knight are debatable.

  21. Wow! Great Updated list! I wish I got that star spangled ranger :,(! I remember looking at it with 1300 vbucks!!!!!! Oh well, at least I have blue team leader and ac/dc

      1. No I don’t have Black Knight. I wish :(. I really don’t like Sparkle too much. My brother likes it. I know I’ll get hate for this…

        1. I do have a different opinion, but i am not going to force you to think that Sparkle Specialist is good.

          LIKE SOME PEOPLE ALWAYS DO.

  22. I think it is safe to add the following items to this list, since they were only available during limited time events that wont happen for another year.
    Deadfire, Cash Flow, Wild Card, Dark Engine, Fiery, Birthday Cake and Crowbar + more that came with these skins/cosmetics.

      1. No. That was like the default skin in S4 and S5. I think a lot of people have it, but no one wears it due to other starter packs/how common it is.

  23. Only recon expert and ghoul trooper should be there or item shop. All christmas skins came back on jan 30 and 31 and sgt green clover is a s3 release.

  24. I have the lepracaun. Most of the skins you posted are going to be gone this season so the lepracaun will be one of the rarest non battle pass skin

  25. Is this the rarest skin loadout in the game?
    Skin=recon expert
    Backbling=blackshield
    Pick axe=raiders revenge
    Glider=aerial assault one
    Contrail=flames
    Loading screen=elite agent
    Banner=pew die pie banner
    Emote slot 1 to 6= eee spray,kab lama,Pax west,gamescom 2018 spray,floss,worm

  26. I know Black Knight is rare but I see at least 4 every game. In my opinion, Recon expert is way more rare than Renegade raider. From my eyes cause I see a renegade once every game.

  27. I love these new sections! Can’t wait to see what you put in them.

    I only have one request. Never, and I mean never, add John Wick to this section. I doubt you ever would anyway, but I just needed clarification. I feel like tons of kids are going to ask that you put it here…

  28. I think Power Chord is still rare considering it was rereleased for one day. Crackshot was rereleased also again in the earlier of the year.

  29. Shouldn’t the Havoc skin and the rest of the first twitch prime pack be on here, as I rarely see anyone using it and not a lot of people played back then.

  30. What about skull trooper?
    Anybody who previously owned the skin gets a purple version.
    Isn’t that still rare?
    Cool and useful website BTW 🙂
