Fortnite skins April 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 April 2021. 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.

Fortnite Season 6 has just dropped and it already looks set to be as hectic as Season 4 and Season 5 of Chapter 2. A new Battle Pass has released with plenty of new cosmetics, and more are due to arrive over the coming weeks!

We’ve rounded up every Fortnite skin we expect to land in the battle royale in April 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

Rebirth Harley Quinn - DC Series

The Fortnite / Batman crossover has officially begun with the release of the first of six fortnightly comics. The six-issue miniseries has thrust the World's Greatest Detective onto the Fortnite Island, though he has no memories of who he is or how he got there.

Even if you aren't interested in lore there's still a good reason to pick up these comics: in-game cosmetics.

The first part includes a code for a new Rebirth Harley Quinn Fortnite skin, with future issues planned to include pickaxes and gliders for various DC characters. If you redeem the unique code from all six, you'll get an exclusive Armored Batman skin as well.

If you live in the US (or use a VPN) you could instead sign up for DC Universe Infinite. Once your free trial has ended just read and finish each comic to receive a code to your email account (it can take a couple of hours so expect a slight wait).

As explained above a new Batman Fortnite skin is on the way. To get it you'll need the unique codes from all six Fortnite / Batman crossover comics, either by buying them physically or reading them on DC Universe Infinite if you live in the US.

Aloy - Horizon Zero Dawn collab

As expected, the Aloy Fortnite skin has just been revealed and many of the leaks have now been verified by official information. As we predicted there will be a tournament exclusively for PS4 and PS5 players, who can compete for the Horizon Zero Dawn bundle on April 14.

Additional Lara and Aloy will be teaming up for an LTM (limited-time mode) starting on April 16. The Aloy skin bundle will drop into the item shop on April 16 as well (alongside a wrap, glider, emote, harvesting tool, and backbling). If you play Fortnite on a PS5 you'll unlock an exclusive style for Aloy. 

Pricing for the items hasn't yet been announced.

After being rumored for a while, we now know that Neymar will be getting a Fortnite skin inspired by him. We had a few teasers, like Fortnite Brazil changing its Twitter picture to a llama with the footballer's hair - it's since changed back - and a reality log which Neymar reacted to.

Now Epic Games have confirmed that a Neymar Jr. skin, with a wolf-like design, is on the way - though we'll have to wait a little longer to see what he looks like properly. You will most likely need the Batte Pass if you want to unlock him when the skin is released.

Lynx - Fortnite Crew April 2021

The Fortnite Crew pack for April 2021 has been revealed and it includes Alli — the in-game sister of the Lynx skin. If you are a Fortnite Crew subscriber during April you'll just have to log in to earn the exclusive Fortnite skin as well as a pickaxe, back bling, and weapon wrap.

Fortnite Crew costs $11.99 (£9.99 / AU$15.99) per month and will also net you 1,000 V-Bucks as well as the Battle Pass if you don't currently own it.

Rumored Fortnite skins

Princess Felicity - Fishstick's fantasy

The long-awaited Princess Felicity Fortnite skin may be arriving soon. After being teased in various loading screens and in-game references 'Princess Fishstick' may be about to enter the game.

It looks like she's part of a bundle that will also come with a pickaxe, glider and weapon wrap too, though until she officially releases we won't know if these items can be bought separately or not.

The Foundation - Leader of the Seven

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 until Season 7 — as he's currently sealed within the Zero Point — but 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.

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.
