What are the best Fortnite skins?

Skins are the best; they allow companies to make loads of money without affecting the gameplay. I mean, Team Fortress 2 became a massively popular game simply because of hat skins. In fact, Fortnite has made skins its bread and butter since launching last year.

There are so many skins to choose from and not just character skins. There are the glider skins, backpack bling and even dances and emotes to spend your hard earned cash on.

With the options kind of ridiculous, what are the peak character skins? Well, here are five of the best.

1. Skeleton

One of the earliest significant skins to be released, and it cost $15 back in the day which is kinda expensive for something so plain. That being said, is there anything cooler than looking like one of the Cobra Kai at Haloween?

One thing to take note of is that most players with the Skeleton skin are older players, so are usually really good.

2. Power Chord

I mean if you want to stick out like a sore thumb but also looks pretty fantastic, then this is the one for you. She kind of looks like she should be from Guitar Hero, plus pink hair is always a killer.

3. Leviathan

One of the newest skins in the game and let’s be honest, it looks fantastic. A fish head in a bowl on top of a spaceman, I mean cmon, that is the coolest.

Unfortunately, it is a kind of weird looking and does stand out like a sore thumb really bad. However, it might just be one of the best Fortnite skins around.

4. Crackshot

Look, it is terrifying and will haunt your dreams for the rest of eternity. That being said, it might just be one of the best-designed skins in the game and who can argue with that.

Sure it is holiday themed, but Christmas can be enjoyed all year round.

5. John Wick

Ok, so the actual name for this skin is ‘The Reaper’. However, almost everyone knows it as the John Wick skin and for a good reason… it looks like Keanu Reeves’ character.

You need to be tier 100 of the Battle Pass to get this skin, so either you need to play a whole lot of the game, or pay almost £100 to unlock it.

Still, the fear you strike into noobs’ eyes when they see you is worth every penny.
