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

Fortnite just won't stop with its brilliant collaborations and keeps giving players plenty of options for new cosmetics. We know it's hard to keep up, so we're here to explain all the Fortnite skins you’ll be getting your hands on in September 2021. 

Fortnite Season 7 is here and it looks set to be quite different from what we're used to. Expect to see this page updated with Fortnite skins based on aliens and other strange creatures. We imagine that the pop culture collaborations won't stop soon either.

We’ve rounded up every Fortnite skin we expect to land in the battle royale in September 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 so you look fashionable while racking up the eliminations.

Officially unveiled Fortnite skins

Shang-Chi – Master of martial arts

Shang-Chi, the star of the recently released MCU film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, has been honored with his own Fortnite skin.

The outfit, along with accompanying back bling and weapon wrap, can be bought right now in the Item Shop. The skin costs 1,500 V-Bucks on its own or 1,800 V-Bucks in a bundle with the other cosmetics.

Will Smith has entered Fortnite, or at least one of his characters has. Mike Lowrey from The Bad Boys series has been given his own Fortnite Skin. He's available in the Item Shop right now along with the Detective’s Duffle back bling and the Loose Cannon Cutters harvesting tool.

It's odd that we'd get just one of The Bad Boys, so we expect that Martin Lawrence's character might be added to the game soon though nothing has been confirmed yet.

Galaxy Grappler – Galaxy Cup 2.0

On August 29 we were able to take part in the Android Galaxy Cup 2.0 for a chance to unlock brand new cosmetics before any other player, though now you'll have to wait for it to drop into the Item Shop at some point soon.

Morty – Rick's trusty sidekick

Hammer Morty may have already appeared in-game as Rick's Pickaxe, but now the boy himself has arrived on the Fortnite island.

We don't know how we feel about fighting an actual child; he is canonically 14 even if some of his adventures can make us forget how young he is. However, you could put this to your advantage if you choose to play as the new Morty skin as you may find people are more reluctant to eliminate you.

Mecha Morty is available in the item shop now (for 1,500 V-bucks), alongside the Space Snake pickaxe, Look at me! weapon wrap and the Get Schwifty emote. All of these can be purchased together in a bundle for 2,200 V-Bucks.

First Shadows – Fortnite Crew September to November

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 will bring The Burning Wolf, Chaos Origins arrives in 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

As Season 8 draws near, leakers are starting to find a whole bunch of new cosmetics and skins hidden in Fortnite's game files. We won't be going through them all here, but one interesting one was spotted by @ShiinaBR and others over on Twitter.

The new character's design looks nearly identical to the costume worn by the lead in Epic's Unreal Engine 5 Demo (all be it in a Fortnite art style). This would make a lot of sense, tying into another rumor that Fortnite will be transitioning over to Unreal Engine 5 in Season 8 – which is set to arrive on September 12.

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'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

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 8 – as he was last seen falling into the ocean – 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.
