Ever wondered what the rarest Fortnite skins are? If you are an OG Fortnite player, you could probably guess a few. If you are new to Fortnite, it means these skins would be extremely difficult to obtain.
While there are tons of rare Fortnite skin that usually comes into rotation once in a long while, there are a few of them that you probably never heard of.

Rarest Fortnite Skins
The recent season of Fortnite has been completely taken over by epic skins and crossovers like Rick Grimes (from the walking dead) and Ariana Grande (popular female artist).
There are pretty much a lot of exciting, popular, and original skins that are rare. Most of these skins can be bought in the Fortnite skin shop. Others come in battle pass.
Top 10 Rarest Fortnite Skins
Here is a list of the top ten skins I consider to be rare on Fortnite.
- Aerial Assault Trooper.
- Renegade Raider.
- Special Forces.
- Black Knight.
- Double Helix.
- Honor Guard.
- Black Widow.
- Royale Bomber.
- The Reaper.
Let’s talk a little about these skins. I would also make another list containing rare skins on Fortnite. If you have any of these skins, consider yourself an OG.
Aerial Assault Trooper
Without much argument, the rarest skin on Fortnite as of now is the Aerial assault trooper skin. This skin was first and only seen during the first season of Fortnite.
If you didn’t get the skin back then, you probably can’t get this skin again. Maybe Fortnite would decide to bring back this skin in the future.
The skin was only available for purchase in the Fortnite shop during season one and it sold for 1200 V-Bucks.
The renegade raider may not look special because of the skin design but it is an OG fan-favorite skin. This skin is loved by a lot of old Fortnite players. This skin was only available in the first season of Fortnite.
Back then, you could obtain this skin for 1200 V-bucks but you’d have to reach level 20 first. Any player with this skin portrays a clear message that they’ve been playing the game since the very first season.
This is a Samsung galaxy exclusive skin that is extremely rare. I doubt you’ve ever seen a skin like this again on Fortnite.
This skin was later replaced by the glow skin later in 2019. If you purchased the Samsung galaxy note 9 or Samsung galaxy tab s4 back then, you could claim this skin for free.
This is another skin that accompanied the first season of Fortnite. This skin was up for sale for 1200 V-Bucks in the first season of Fortnite.
This skin was last seen back in January 2019 which makes it a rare skin. Only OG players have this skin. Although it has been over two years, this skin may make a reappearance in the Fortnite shop.
You could only obtain this skin by reaching the end of the first-ever Fortnite battle pass. This was chapter one, Season two.
This simply means players don’t just have to buy a battle pass but also complete the battle pass. To complete a Fortnite battle pass back then, you have to reach level seventy.
That was over four years now… the chances of seeing this skin again are fairly high. I would say almost impossible. Maybe it can come up if Fortnite decides to do a throwback.
This skin is one of the rarest skins because it could only be obtained by purchasing an expensive device back then.
This skin was part of a limited-edition Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundle. Purchasing the bundle gave players a DLC code that can be redeemed for the skin and 1000 V-Bucks.
Other than the high cost of purchasing the Nintendo Switch console, the skin isn’t available on most online retailers’ stores anymore. Even if you do find it, it’s going to be expensive.
This honor guard skin is a skin that looks like a blue power ranger. This skin is only available to those who purchased the Honor View 20 smartphone.
Currently, this is one of the most expensive skins in Fortnite history. While this skin is still available to get, it’s incredibly possible that someone would try to get the skin as most people are loyal to their favorite smartphone brands.
The black widow skin was first released in 2018. This was during the Fortnite season X event with marvel avengers: endgame.
This skin was last seen on the Fortnite item store in May 2019. This has made it one of the rarest Fortnite skins. Despite other black widow skins rolling out, the OG black widow skin would probably not make another appearance.
The Royale Bomber is a PS4 bundle exclusive skin. This is a skin that’ll unlikely surface again. The skin first arrived in 2018 and was part of the Dual Shock 4 controller bundle.
While you can still find this skin if you look very hard, I really wouldn’t recommend it as it would come at a very high price.
John wick fans definitely love this skin. This skin was available as the last item in Fortnite’s chapter one season three battle pass.
Simply put, to obtain this skin, you would have to max out the battle pass. The skin started as a joke in the Fortnite community as it was based on John Wick (Keanu Reeves).
