Top 50 Rarest Skins in Fortnite - August 2021

Rare skins in Fortnite has been a controversial subject. Players that have them don't want them to return because they want the reward of being around in the beginning of the game (OGs). Newer players obviously want to get a chance to grab all the skins they like.

If you are looking for Fortnite's Rarest Skins then we've got all the rarest outfits, back bling, pickaxes, emotes, gliders, and items in this post. We're including the top 50 rarest skin based on how long ago they've been seen in the item shop. This isn't a perfect methodology, but it's as close to a scientific-method as we can get for this kind of list.

Rare skins in Fortnite has been a controversial subject. Players that have them don't want them to return because they want the reward of being around in the beginning of the game (OGs). Newer players obviously want to get a chance to grab all the skins they like.

Epic has made an interesting compromise for the Skull Trooper skin. This was a very rare skin and hadn't been in the shop for a year. When they brought it back, they gave OG owners of the skin a style that will not be available for people who buy the skin new. This is a nice way to reward older players, while not keeping popular skins away from people who just got into the game.

What is the rarest Fortnite skin in 2020?

The rarest skin in Fortnite is probably Aerial Assault Trooper! Why do I think that? Well, because it's just not that great of a skin. While most people would put Renegade Raider at the #1 spot, but if you played back when it came out, you most likely picked it up. It's just an overall better skin, so it's way less likely that people bought Aerial Assault Trooper because it's a pretty bland outfit.


The fact of the matter is that we have no idea which skin is the rarest. There's no official way to tell! Epic would have to release the numbers or just outright tell us what skin is least owned across all accounts. It's unlikely that this will ever happen.

What is the rarest item shop skin?

To me it's Hacivat. It isn't a well-liked skin, they don't really fit any particular type of skin that I see people buy very often. It's only been in the shop a few times, and it hasn't been back in a very long time.

What are the top 5 rarest skins in Fortnite?

This is very tough, so I'm going to try to compile a list out of all the skins by age and how hard they were to get at the time. Here's the top 5 rarest skins in my opinion:

1. Aerial Assault Trooper

2. Renegade Raider

3. Black Knight

4. Sparkle Specialist

5. Double Helix

I think the first four are pretty obvious, these are really old skins when the game had just really come out. Fortnite wasn't a smash hit straight out of the gate, and it did take some time to really get going. So, I think those early battle pass skins are pretty rare. Double Helix is on the list because I'm not convinced people bought a Nintendo Switch to get a Fortnite skin. You likely already had a Switch, and I don't think a skin was going to encourage you to get one. When it comes to promotional skins, it's very hard to know how popular they are.

What are the top 3 rarest item shop skins?

We've got a better idea on how rare these are with the length of time since they've been seen, ratings, and how many times they've been in the shop before. So, here's the top 4 rarest item shop skins in my opinion:

1. Hacivat

2. Axiom

3. Psion


I've already discussed the first two, they don't seem popular and they've been in the shop pretty infrequently. Axiom is just another of the skins that fits in the category of: "I have no idea why this was made?" It's just not an overly good looking skin, it's bulky, and I don't really see it being bought very much! Now that Far Out Man has returned, it looks like we've got to replace him! Psion is the addition I feel like belongs on the list. She hasn't been in the shop often, and I doubt she was very popular when she came out.

Rarest Fortnite Skins & Cosmetics

These are skins you CANNOT get anymore. They won't be back again unless Epic changes their policy completely. I'm only including the skins from the very first season of Fortnite because we know for sure these are rare. Trying to determine whether or not certain Battle Pass Seasons are rare is impossible. These skins were available for purchase if you got your Season level to a certain point. You could then purchase them with V-Bucks.





Rarest Fortnite Item Shop Cosmetics

Now, these skins are ones you might actually have a chance to get. These are being determined automatically based on the last time they were seen in the item shop. Do NOT ask if a certain skin is rare, there's no way to tell in any real practical sense. Do let me know if one of the dates is wrong on the list so I can correct it!
