Fortnite Rare Skins

What are rare skins in Fortnite?

Rare skins in Fortnite are those that were released in the earlier seasons, prior to Fortnite’s mega popularity, and those that were difficult to obtain when released. For some, there is a combination of both their early release and their difficulty to be obtained at the time. Skins like the black knight, released in season 2 (very early on), also required that players advance to tier 70 in order to unlock it. Epic later added the black knight to the item shop (a very controversial decision), but it still remains a rare skin to this day. Skins acquired at the upper level tiers of the battle pass will likely remain fairly rare for same time, as they require extensive time to reach the final tiers.

Some of the rarer skins are also those that were released in early seasons but were the “less flashy” skins and were not purchased by many people. A good example of this is the recon expert. The recon expert, debated as potentially being the rarest skin in the game, was released in season 1 for 1,200 V-Bucks. A price largely in line with other skins in the shop that were a little flashier, not too many people decided to purchase this skin. The skin has been unavailable since, so those lucky few that made the initial purchase back in season 1 are the only ones who have the privilege to utilize this skin.

The galaxy skin, though recently debuted, has also remained relatively rare due to its expensive requirement to obtain. Players must play Fortnite on their Samsung Note 9 or a Tab S4, requiring you to spend hundreds of dollars (if you weren’t already an owner of the phone) in order to obtain the skin.
