Fortnite skins October 2021: All the skins coming to Fortnite and how to get them

Asia's Tech News Daily

October 2021 is here and that means Fortnite is getting spooky with a whole host of new Halloween-inspired skins for players to wear in-game. We know it’s hard to keep up with all of the new skins that are being added so we’re here to help you out.

This is also Fortnite Season 8, and so far it’s been one of the best Seasons in Chapter 2. While the gameplay has been mixed up, the effort that goes into skin designs hasn’t changed at all and Epic is churning out some great looking character models.

We’ve rounded up every Fortnite skin we expect to land in the battle royale in October 2021, with not only skins confirmed by Epic Games but leaks and rumors for upcoming collaborations. We’ll tell you how to unlock them all so you can look fashionable while racking up the eliminations.

Officially unveiled Fortnite skins

The Mummy

Multiple leakers have been teasing that Fortnite is getting a ‘The Mummy’ crossover for a while and now Epic Games has got in on the action suggesting the Mummy skin will be added to the Item Shop soon.

At the time of writing, we don’t know exactly when it will be dropping but keep an eye out over the weekend if you want to snag this Egyptian-inspired horror before he returns to his thousand-year slumber.

There are so many Halloween-inspired skins in Fortnite now that we can’t dedicate a section to each one individually. This year Epic Games has added loads of new skin options and variants for players to try out.

If you log into the game today and head to the Item Shop you’ll see individual Fortnite skins and bundles based on spookified versions of your favorite characters including a terrifying reimagining of Drift. You’ll find some cuter ones too like Gummy Fishsticks.

Batman who Laughs

Following on from the previous Fortnite x Batman crossover it looks like DC and Epic Games are teaming up for another collaboration that will bring the Batman who Laughs to the Fortnite Island.

This terrifying version of the caped crusader is a fusion of Batman and the Joker – making him Bruce Wayne’s worst nightmare brought to life. His arrival on October 26 – alongside the new Batman/Fortnite: Foundation comic – is perfect then as it is just in time for Halloween.

Like previous DC collaboration cosmetics, you can earn the Batman who Laughs skin by purchasing the comic and entering your unique code in-game. Alternatively, you can buy the skin with V-Bucks when it releases on the Item Shop on October 25.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is back in Fortnite again, this time as an astronaut-inspired monster hunter here to save us from the Cube Queen.

You can pick this skin up on its own for 2,000 V-Bucks or in a bundle for 2,500 V-Bucks. The bundle includes the new Ariana Grande Fortnite skin, a glider, pickaxe, backbling and a unique emote to transition between the skin’s two styles – morphing Grande between an astronaut design and a more scray space-knight-looking form.

Unfortunately, even if you already own the other Ariana Grande skin, you’ll have to buy this one as it is its own unique costume rather than a new style for the old skin.

Dune Crossover

To tie into the upcoming Dune film, Fortnite players are currently able to purchase skins based on Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) as they appear in the sci-fi epic.

You can pick up either skin in the Fortnite Item Shop for 1,500 V-Bucks each or in a bundle of 2,000 V-Bucks for both. Additionally you can snag the Dune Gear bundle that includes a a Ornithopter glider and Twinblades pickaxe.

Season 8 Battle Pass Skins

It wouldn’t make sense for us to single out every Season 8 Battle Pass skin, so we’re going to do a big dump of them all here. As you can see in the trailer above Charlotte looks like a goth with martial arts abilities, Toona Fish is a cartoonized Fishsticks, Kor-9 seems to be a badass assassin, J.B. Chimpanski is a human-sized chimpanzee in a spacesuit and Torin appears to be a fantasy hero with strange mystical powers.

Our two favorites have to be Fabio Sparklemane – a buff My Little Pony-esque unicorn humanoid – and Carnage – the red symbiote appearing in Venom 2.

You’ll also need the Battle Pass if you want to unlock the ‘secret’ Cube Queen Fortnite skin later this Season.

You can unlock the Battle pass by paying 950 V-Bucks or by signing up to Fortnite Crew for $11.99 / £9.99 / AU$15.99/ per month.

First Shadows – Fortnite Crew September to November

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Epic Games has officially teased its next three Fortnite Crew skins called the First Shadows. Looking at the picture above the skins will be added from left to right; September brought The Burning Wolf, Chaos Origins has arrived with October and finally, Sierra will drop in November.

Lore wise these skins seem to tie into the Shadow vs Ghost story from Fortnite Chapter 2, with these characters being the first three Shadows that Midas recruited.

If you subscribe for all three months you’ll also get a bonus style for each outfit. Fortnite Crew costs $11.99 (£9.99 / AU$15.99) per month and alongside the exclusive skin it will net you 1,000 V-Bucks as well as the Battle Pass if you don’t currently own it.

Rumored Fortnite skins

Peacemaker – Star of The Suicide Squad

Twitter user, and leaker @ShiinaBR has suggested that Peacemaker could follow on from Bloodsport as yet another The Suicide Squad tie-in. The same person who leaked Bloodsport suggested John Cena’s character could appear too, meaning we might see the character show up soon.

We don’t have anything more concrete, like in-game files, so take this with a pinch of salt but we could see Peacemaker arrive in January 2022 when his new show is expected to be released on HBO Max.

Samus Aran – Nintendo’s bounty hunter

In Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 many fans were calling for Nintendo to be represented by an in-game skin after both Xbox and PlayStation got their mascots in the Battle Royale. The obvious choice was bounty hunter Samus from the Metroid series – but she never showed up.

Leaked documents shared on Twitter from the Epic Games vs Apple court battle indicate that Samus is/was planned to appear in the game (alongside multiple other characters like Naruto and Ariana Grande). The above panel from issue three of the Batman Zero Point series adds to the speculation that the character could still be coming after fans spotted a silhouette that looks a lot like Samus.

Take this rumor with an unhealthy amount of salt, but it could mean that Samus might soon arrive as a Fortnite skin.

Leaked survey skins

Here are ALL the skins from Epic’s Survey, again thanks to @LeakySussed! pic.twitter.com/H8RNZlQjOOMay 14, 2021

Here’s a leak to take with an extra pinch of salt: multiple Fortnite leakers on Twitter have shared images from a recent Epic survey showing off several new skin designs. In it the company detailed potential Fortnite skins and included images of ones we might eventually see added to the game.

You can see all of the in the tweet above but some of our favorites are Cartoon Bushranger, a Vampire Drift, and Guff dressed as a Christmas tree. We have no clue if any of these skins will ever be added to the game, but be on the lookout in future seasons.

The Foundation – Leader of the Seven

(Image credit: Epic / Hypex)

The Foundation, a character that appeared in the epic Fortnite Season 5 event, is rumored to be becoming a Fortnite skin at some point in the future. It’s likely we won’t see him for a while longer though his involvement in the Batman who Laughs tie-in might cause this skin to finally be added; we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Leaker Hypex found files related to the skin in-game so he could be on the way sooner than that, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
