Paying a visit to the Fortnite item shop is somewhat of a key pastime for many players of the game. Finding new cosmetics for their characters and Fortnite weapons is something that is very important, and Epic Games are more than willing to indulge with a plethora of Fortnite skins and more.

What you will realize is that many of these cosmetics, which are often divided based on their rarity, are no longer in rotation in the game, making them incredibly rare indeed. Some were available for particular seasonal events, during certain periods of the game, and even behind certain real-world device purchases. With that being said, let’s take a look at a few of the best rarest Fortnite skins that you probably won’t be getting your hands on anytime soon.


This is classed as a Legendary skin and was available as a Tier 100 Season 5 Battle Pass reward. What was special about this skin was the fact that it was a Fortnite skin that was built upon as players unlocked more challenges. It boasted a Viking style skin that would prove to be most intimidating out on the battlefield.

Ghoul Trooper

Since we are in the hallowed season, let’s take a look at the Ghoul Trooper. No longer in circulation, this skin would set players back 1500 V-Bucks and would be available as part of promotion back in 2017. The importance of this year is that it predates the time in which Fortnite truly realized its potential in terms of popularity. Since it wasn’t well known as it is in the years that would follow, the skin wasn’t purchased by many, making it even rarer.


Now here is where the big bucks come in. As mentioned, some Fortnite skins were in fact locked behind purchases of real-world devices. The Galaxy serves as one of the most expensive Fortnite skins that you can get since you were required to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note, or the Galaxy Tab S4. These would cost in surplus of $400 at the time, and players would then have to install Fortnite on the device and play three games before being able to get the skin.

Sparkle Specialist

Another Epic skin that is now out of rotation, this skin cost 2,000 V-Bucks and provided players with a funky new look. Sadly, it appeared way back in Season 2 and hasn’t surfaced since then. So, we need to wait even longer before we get to experience this fresh skin once more.

Black Knight

Speaking of Season 2, the Black Knight was available for purchase from that season’s Battle Pass. You could get the Black Knight once you reached Tier 70, which came with an awesome shield as back bling. Not only is the skin super rare, but it’s probably one of the coolest Fortnite skins to ever grace the game.

Aerial Assault Trooper

We are going even further back now, with the Aerial Assault Trooper. This appeared back in Season 1 and was not made available since. Needless to say, that makes this an incredibly rare Fortnite skin indeed. In terms of its availability at the time, you would be able to get this skin once you reached level 15, and coughed up 1200 V-Bucks. Since that early stage, we haven’t seen it in the Fortnite item shop.

Renegade Raider

Also, in Season 1 was the Renegade Raider. This is one of the rarest Fortnite skins in the entirety of Fortnite, if not THE rarest of them all. The reason is that it was only available in Season 1, and it just didn’t pop as other Fortnite Battle Royale skins did. Its rather bland appearance meant that it didn’t have a lot of players buying it. The fact that it hasn’t been released since only further emphasizes its rarity.

These Fortnite skins are the rarest that you can find in the popular Battle Royale title. You are not likely to find any of these cosmetics gracing the Fortnite item shop ever again, so be sure to keep a lookout for a rare sighting of these skins when you’re out there blasting your Fortnite weapons.
