Fortnite has added very unique and out-of-the box cosmetics this season.
Fortnite has been the place to find many great cosmetics, and the developers never shy away from experimenting in the game. They have introduced new types of cosmetics which deviated from the mainstream skins and people loved them.
The game has been encouraging creative cosmetics and the community comes up with very unique cosmetics ideas which sometimes make their way into the game. Moreover, some cosmetics seem very arbitrary yet hold a lot of lore context, which is revealed as the game progresses. The Seven’s members were also thought to be just another cosmetic in the game until they made huge changes to the storyline of Fortnite and will be influencing it in the future as well.
As well as original creative ideas, Fortnite has been adding quite a lot of promotional cosmetics as well, which aid the player’s fantasies to become their favourite superheroes, or live as famous characters in the game. Epic Games' title has emerged as a platform to have everything in one place, and it has been overwhelming for many players. Last season received a lot of hatred from non-Marvel lovers, stating the game felt very commercialised.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 rectified some of these concerns for the community and has a perfect blend of original cosmetics mixed with high-quality promotional skins. Even the battle pass has many great cosmetics that have in-built emotes and more to make them unique.
Here is a look at the top five Fortnite cosmetics present in Chapter 2 Season 5.
Top 5 Best Fortnite Skins Chapter 2 Season 5
Best Fortnite Skins Chapter 2 Season 5 - #1 Snowmando
Snowmando is one of the best and creative looking cosmetics in Chapter 2 Season 5. The cosmetic came as a free reward during the Operation Snowdown Event and perfectly captures the holiday vibes' essence. The cosmetic showcases a muscular snowman wearing a jacket and red pants, ready for a snowy expedition. In the past, players have received very average looking free cosmetics during Christmas, so this cosmetic is a welcome addition for all the players in Fortnite.
Best Fortnite Skins Chapter 2 Season 5 - #2 Black Panther
Black Panther is the next superhero on the list, and he has waited for a very long time. During the Marvel-themed Chapter 2 Season 4, Iron Man rifted a Black Panther monument onto the map, which made many players wonder if Black Panther would arrive on the island. As he didn’t come in that season, Epic Games paid respect to the superhero's fallen actor Chadwick Boseman by adding his cosmetic along with Captain Marvel and the Taskmaster cosmetic through a Marvel Royalty pack. The skin looks stunning, and it has purple reactive energy surrounding it, which makes it even more attractive to look at in Fortnite.
Best Fortnite Skins Chapter 2 Season 5 - #3 Kondor
Kondor is the first Season 5 battle pass character to arrive on this list. The mysterious cosmetic can be obtained by reaching Tier 60 of the battle pass, and the character doesn’t even have a face. He is wearing a spacesuit that could tie him to the lore of the game in the future. Moreover, the cosmetic in itself might not be attractive to some players, but here's where things get interesting. He has a built-in emote named ‘Vengeful Wish’ which reveals his unshackled style and looks amazing.
Best Fortnite Skins Chapter 2 Season 5 - #4 Kratos
Kratos, the God of War himself landed in the realm of Fortnite this season to stop players from escaping the loop. This cosmetic came as a surprise to many players, as Kratos is a gory god who doesn’t fit well in Fortnite's overall fun thematic. However, the game decided to reveal this cosmetic which looks very well detailed and should give wings to the PlayStation gamers. Moreover, the overall looks and aesthetics of the cosmetic look marvellous, to say the least.
Best Fortnite Skins Chapter 2 Season 5 - #5 Lexa
Lexa is the last cosmetic on our list, and she is a special cosmetic in Fortnite. At first glance, players should notice that something’s up with the cosmetic as it looks very different from the game's art style. However, with the help of the whole creative team at Epic Games, this unique anime-themed concept appeals to all the young teens. The cosmetic has an illustration which is fully anime-themed and turns into an edgier, scarier version of herself with the built-in emote. Her built-in emote turns her into her Mechafusion suit version, which is hungry for eliminations.
