What are the Rarest Skins in Fortnite? (February 2023)

The rarest of the rare.

Fortnite has no shortage of unique and highly sought-after skins. Everything from originals to Star Wars and Batman to Marvel—there's something for everyone. But there are those who seek out the truly rare and unique. When it comes to determining how rare a skin is, we base it on how long ago the item was in the Item Shop. Otherwise, it becomes too subjective. Keep scrolling past the rarest Fortnite skins and you'll find our lists of rarest back blings, emotes, gliders, pickaxes, wraps, music, and bundles in the Fortnite store. So, with the ground rules established, let's get into it!

  1. Caution came back and a few other skins I thought u should know man in case you update the page

    1. Hey thanks for letting us know, but when the site refresh happens this list gets updated, so it was already removed when I looked at it 🙂

  2. This is more as a suggestion, but try making just one of Tron skins appear on rarest, its 10 of them and they are gonna take a lot of space(like the snakepit one does)

    1. Sadly I don’t think that’s possible. BUT I’ll see what I can do, as it’s a great idea! Thank you, Ampha!

  3. dozer should not be here

    1. Fixed!

  4. This really needs updated. At least 10 of the items in this list have come back in the last few weeks

    1. just missing to remove far out man and dreamflower, both returned w tidy

    2. We’ve fixed the page! Let me know if it’s accurate!

  5. so, listing off: Munitions major,Tango,steelsight, Deo, Yeehaw, all returned from skins(id check the ones not on 50 bc a couple returned too)
    Halloween backblings returned(14-19)
    Breezy, tsss, Fandangle, busy and some others on emotes page returned
    Mainframe returned
    Bottom feeder, crossroads returned
    and a couple of rare wraps returned too

  6. list is all outdated at this point right? i can mention the ammount of items on vault, rare streaks, and such that returned this or past week and are still on list

  7. Steelsight returned

  8. uh, is it normal that opera browsers dont update at all? i’ve checked on my chrome and page updates correctly, but on opera it doesnt

    1. Are you using Opera GX or normal Opera?

  9. Lazy shuffle has returned too

  10. Sypherpk locker bundle isnt returning w icon skin being a thing, so I think it might be better to remove it from bundles

  11. Airhead and Maverick are back

  12. I had the Fresh emote and refunded it 🤦‍♂️

  13. Very nice article. I absolutely love this website. Stick with it!

  14. Hotwire is back

  15. The Ice Queen outfit and the Snow Day emote should be on these lists as they’ve not been released for over a year, just because they’re Holiday cosmetics it doesn’t mean they’re not rare

  16. King Krab is back

  17. Galaxy skin?!

  18. uh, shouldnt Pivot glider and angular axe not be on the list? I mean, both are from reflex set and not returning, and Reflex is not on rarest skins one so I believe both shouldnt be on gliders & Pickaxes

  19. Rhinestone glider is back

  20. Dude, u fr forgot ab Galaxy Skin????

  21. will there be a list update because skins came out

  22. toxic tagger, zina, and riot have all come out

  23. Synth came back

  24. Grit came back

  25. uh, Both clash and matchpoint returned, idk if its a visual glitch for me or its really not updated

  26. Wherea clash can clash and roit return already

  27. Quick question could you throw a honorable mention to the OG football skins.

    1. This is a mostly automated list. It features the rarest skins. I’ll look into the rarity of those skins and see if they’re worth mentioning, but our primary method of determining what belongs on this list is the frequency in which they appear in the item shop.

      1. The OG football skins are never going to return, they were replaced by the new models, therefore they don’t belong in the list.

        1. This list is updated automatically and is set only to exclude holiday items. We wanted to include the holiday items, but since they only show up once a year, the list is filled with Holiday items if we don’t exclude them. Otherwise, the “rarity” is sorted by the last time they were featured in the shop. We’re trying to adjusting this list to better suit the interests of our readers, but at the moment, they’ll have to stay. Thanks for noticing this, though! That’ll be something to consider when we give this article a makeover.

  28. Something I always thought would be super cool to see is a Top 100 rarest Fortnite items (skins, emotes, sprays, backblings, banners, etc) of all time, not just item shop wise but to really think about how few people may have it. I know it would be very hard and sort of dominated by banners (specifically stw banners) but it would be so cool.

  29. Clash is my rarest skin that I bought.

  30. Uh, just pointing out but sash sargeant is still on the top 6 rarest thing even tho it has returned last month to the shop

    1. Good catch! I updated that list.
