10 of the Most Rare Fortnite Skins
Fortnite: Battle Royale remains a huge hit with gamers for its easy to pick up gameplay. It also remains popular for the endless selection of cosmetic items to earn and buy from the Fortnite Item Shop. Alongside popular emotes, there is a wide range of skins that give your avatar a unique look. We’ve previously looked at the Best Fortnite Skins, but there are some skins so rare that they’re hard to find.
As Epic Games keep pumping out skins, they’re also signing exclusive deals with the biggest consoles and mobile phone manufacturers. With some skins hidden behind an exclusive contract, this makes certain skins rarer than others. Let’s look at the rarest skins available in Fortnite:
The Dark Vertex skin was added to the purchase of an Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition Bundle. The Dark Vertex bundle includes Dark Vertex skin, Dark Forerunner Glider, Dark Razor Pickaxe and 2,000 V-Bucks.
For K-Pop fans, the Ikonik skin gives your avatar the chance to fit in with the popular groups. Releasing a K-Pop skin needed a Korean inspired launch, so Fortnite partnered with Samsung for this release. The Ikonik skin was first available for those who purchased the Samsung S10+, S10 or S10e.
The Honor Guard skin was originally released as part of another mobile phone promotion. This epic skin came with any purchase of an HONOR View20 handset - the first phone to offer a 60 FPS mode.
The Stealth Reflex outfitwas originally released to players who bought the NVIDIA GeForce Fortnite bundle. This release was an apology from Epic Games to those players who were angry the Reflex skin had released in the item shop.
This awesome limited time pack gives your avatar a fiery look for taking on enemies in the battlefield. The tag line said “bring the heat this season” and you can every season with this fantastic Lava Legends bundle.
Another console promotion here, as the Royale Bomber skin was first released with the purchase of a Fortnite PS4. The code was included with the shiny new console. It was then added as a bonus for buying a Dualshock 4 controller which also included 500 V-Bucks. The legendary Royale Bomber is a cool looking character and perfect for landing into the arena with.
Brave the cold with the legendary Frostbite skin that comes in the Deep Freeze bundle.

Have you ever wanted to look like a futuristic soldier? Well, the Eon suit can fulfil that wish. The Eon skin was first released as part of the Xbox One S Fortnite Bundle. The full Eon bundle includes the skin, Resonator Pickaxe and Aurora Glider.
Arguably one of the most unique skins available in Fortnite, the Galaxy skin makes your character look like they’ve been through space. It’s almost as if the galaxies, stars and planets are emanating from his body. Add the small orbs circling his head and you’ve got a skin that fits its name. You won’t be too surprised to learn that this promotion was released for owners of the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4.
