Fortnite skins March 2021: all the skins coming to Fortnite and how to get them

If you’re an avid Fortnite player, then you probably want to know which Fortnite skins you’ll be getting your hands on in the near future. After all, who says you can’t be deadly and fashionable? Fortunately, Epic Games is constantly adding new skins to Fortnite Battle Royale, be it a collaboration with a pop-culture brand or one of its own characters.

The most recent Fortnite seasons - Season 4 and Season 5 of Chapter 2 - have been particularly hectic, with new cosmetics dropping nearly every week. It can be hard to keep up sometimes, but we’re here to help out.

We’ve rounded up every Fortnite skin we expect to land in the battle royale in March 2021, including both skins confirmed by Epic Games and those which are rumored - but don’t worry, we’ve clearly signposted which are which. So, read on for all the Fortnite skins we expect in the near future.

Officially unveiled Fortnite skins

Ant-Man - Marvel Series

After being teased by an in-game Zero Point portal as well as a few cheeky pictures on the Epic Games Twitter account Ant-Man has been added to Fortnite. Given that Season 5 is nearly at a close he is likely to be this season's last bounty hunter summoned by Agent Jones and the last collaboration outfit for a bit.

The Marvel hero can be purchased from the item shop right now for 1,500 VBucks, or in a bundle for 1,800 VBucks with a pickaxe too.

Lazerbeam - Icon Series

Following a reveal on his YouTube channel, more details about Australian Youtuber Lazerbeam’s Fortnite skin have been revealed. Inspired by his pre-influencer years as a builder, the set also includes many references to Lazerbeam’s online career - such as the ‘code lazar’ tattoo and overuse of yeet. 

The whole set could be won by competing in the Lazar & Fresh’s Super Knockback tournament on March 3, though you can now purchase the skin from the Item Shop for 1,500 VBucks.

Marigold - Female Midas

Continuing the tradition of gender-swapped versions of pre-existing skins, we have the arrival of Marigold - who is a female version of Midas from Chapter 2 Season 2.

She has launched as part of the  Golden Touch Challenge Pack which includes cosmetics and 1,500 VBucks. You can buy the pack in the Item Shop now for $11.99/ £9.99 (AU$17.55).

Cyprus Nell - Intergalactic Warrior

Epic announced the upcoming Switch Cup 3 taking place on March 9, 2021. The tournament will be exclusive to players on the Nintendo Switch and will take place over one 3-hour window where you’ll be able to earn points based on how well you play across ten matches. 

Top-performing players will win the Cyprus Nell skin - who appears to be a male version of Reese from the Chapter 2 Season 5 Battle Pass. While this is not confirmed by Epic it is likely that Cyprus will be available in the Item Shop after the tournament.

Trinity Trooper - Not from the Matrix

The long rumored ‘Trinity’ skin had its name updated to Trinity Trooper recently (sorry hopeful Matrix fans) and now Fortnite will have an in-game cup for it. On 14 March 2021, at 2 PM GMT, players in the EU can take part in a Trios contest to be able to snag this skin early and for free.

The top 3,333 Trios will unlock the skin, with anyone who competes in at least five matches getting two emoticons to use in-game. The Trinity Trooper will be available in the Item Shop after the tournament for all players and will likely sell for 800 VBucks like other uncommon skins. 

Rebirth Harley Quinn - DC Series

Continuing Epic Game’s collaboration with superhero comics, a Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point collaboration is on the way. This six-issue miniseries will not only expand on the Fortnite lore but will include codes for in-game items such as the Rebirth Harley Quinn skin.

You can snag these items for yourself by purchasing the comic books as they release from April 20 through to July 6 or by subscribing to DC Universe Infinite in the US.

Rumored Fortnite skins

Kevuru Games Potential Skin Concept Art

Here's a rumor to take with more than just a pinch of salt. Kevuru Games posted this image on Artstation, the team has worked on Fortnite skins before and these definitely look like characters that fit Fortnite's style.

Several leakers have shared the image online, but no one knows for certain if this concept art is for scrapped or upcoming in-game outfits.

There's no guarantee that all or even any of these skins will actually appear in Fortnite but they look too cool not to share. Our favourites are the Elvis Presley impersonator, the younger-looking skin that could be the son of Midas - given their similar gold, black and white color schemes - and the genie skin with a lamp for a shoe.
