The rarest Fortnite skins are typically on the older side, as the behemoth battle royale has had tonnes of crossovers and events that have added a litany of skins over the years. They are a popular way for players to represent themselves or their likes in-game, so you may wonder what is the rarest skin in Fortnite? Read on for our primer on the rarest Fortnite skins and if they are still possible to acquire - even though they may come at a steep price

  • Not interested in breaking the bank on one of these rare Fortnite skins? Check out how to get free Fortnite skins.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 10. Stealth Reflex

Also known as the Fortnite Dr Disrespect character skin, this outfit is exclusive to the original GeForce Fortnite Bundle. To get the bundle, you must have bought a brand-new NVIDIA graphics card during the short window of time this promotion was active. 

Released back in 2018, this skin is no longer obtainable. Stealth Reflex will go down in Fortnite history as one of the rarest skins in the game.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 9. Aerial Assault Trooper

fortnite-rarest-skins-aerial-assault-trooper

Tied for the title of oldest skin on this list, Aerial Assault Trooper was one of the very first skins introduced into Fortnite. Back in Season 1, before the Battle Pass, there were a few cosmetic items that could only be purchased once a player reached a certain level. Aerial Assault Trooper was purchasable at level 15 in-game.

So, not only did you have to reach level 15 in Season 1, but you also had to spend 1,200 V-Bucks to unlock Aerial Assault Trooper. This was back in 2017 when no one knew what Fortnite would become or the value of a rare "OG" skin. To top it off, it's not like Aerial Assault Trooper is exactly a unique or super appealing outfit.

Combine these facts together and you have an extremely rare Fortnite skin owned by very few players.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 8. Double Helix

Double Helix is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch Double Helix Bundle. To get this skin, you had to enter a code that could only be acquired through the purchase of limited-edition Nintendo Switch consoles released back in 2018. If you were solely after the Double Helix skin, it would set you back $250.

Getting a Double Helix code nowadays will likely cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. There's a reason you don't see many copies of this skin around!

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 7. Royale Bomber

fortnite-rarest-skins-royale-bomber

Like many of the other skins on this list, Royale Bomber is another promotional skin. Similar to the Double Helix skin, you had to buy one of the Fortnite PlayStation 4 Bundles to get the Royale Bomber outfit.

Released in 2018, the Royale Bomber was popularised during the 2019 Fortnite World Cup. Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf won the Fortnite World Cup with this skin equipped, making it an instant go-to for collectors. 

Four years after its 2018 release, the price of the Royale Bomber skin has significantly increased, as the bundle is in shorter supply. The skin is a must-have for casual fans and professionals, especially those who play Fortnite on a PlayStation console.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 6. Renegade Raider

This skin has been around since the very beginning of Fortnite. Renegade Raider is so old that it predates the Battle Pass System. To obtain it, players had to reach level 20 and then go to the Item Shop, where this skin was purchasable for 1,200 V-Bucks. Due to this outfit being released before Fortnite became massively popular, only a select few players have it. Players that do, however, have been playing Fortnite since its inception, making it highly valuable.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 5. Purple Skull Trooper

fortnite-rarest-skins-purple-skull-trooper

A style of the Skull Trooper outfit only available to players that purchased the outfit during its initial release in October 2017. This outfit, much like the standard Skull Trooper variant, has the Epic status. What makes the purple variant so special is that it is was granted exclusively to the select few players that bought the skin when it first came out, unlike all of the other variants that simply require a user to own the outfit.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 4. Black Knight

fortnite-rarest-skins-black-knight

Released as part of the Fort Knights set, the Black Knight skin was the most coveted of the bunch, as players had to level up their Battle Pass to Level 70 just to obtain it. Even though the level cap in Season 2 was much lower than current-day seasons, this skin remains obscure due to its release so early in Fortnite's lifespan. The game was just taking off when this skin dropped, making it extremely sought after. Black Knight first became available on December 14, 2017, and was retired forever on February 21, 2018. 

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 3. Omega (With Accent Lights)

fortnite-rarest-skins-omega-lights

Omega was the Tier 100 reward of the Chapter 1 Season 4 Battle Pass. As the first-ever progressive outfit in Fortnite, players had to advance their Season Level to unlock the entire outfit. To gain access to the full Omega outfit, accent lights included, you had to reach Tier 100 in the Battle Pass and also obtain a Season Level of 80.

At the time, this was a major feat. Season Level 80 required a substantial time investment into the game. Due to this, not many players have access to the accent lights on the Omega skin.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 2. Honor Guard

fortnite-rarest-skins-honor-guard

In 2019, Fortnite partnered with Honor for a promotion. Anyone that purchased an Honor View 20 smartphone would get a code for the Fortnite Honor Guard skin. At a price of $650, obtaining this outfit was a pricey endeavour. 

This promotion was not available in North America either, further increasing Honor Guard's rarity across the globe.

Fortnite Rarest Skins: 1. Galaxy

fortnite-rarest-skins-galaxy

Released as a cross-promotion between Samsung and Epic Games, the Galaxy skin is a rare and extraordinarily difficult to obtain Fortnite skin. This is because the outfit is restricted to Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tablet S4 users.

Released in August of 2018, this skin is no longer available. To obtain it, the player would have had to download Fortnite on the Galaxy Store and play a match on either the Galaxy Note 9 or Galaxy Tablet S4. This measure meant that you actually had to own a physical device to get the skin, you couldn't just bum a code off of a friend.

The extreme cost and limited availability combined with the stunning aesthetics of the Galaxy skin help earn it the title of the rarest skin in Fortnite.

From Season 1 exclusives to expensive promotional outfits, the rarest skins in Fortnite get the attention of anyone in a match or lobby. They are as iconic as they are rare and any player that has them owns a small piece of Fortnite history.

That's all for our breakdown of Fortnite's rarest skins, and now you know which ones to look out for.
