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 8 has dropped and it is a huge change to what we've seen from the rest of Chapter 2. While the gameplay has changed though Epic is still churning out some amazing Fortnite skin designs that you'll absolutely want in your locker.

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

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.

The secret skin hasn't been revealed yet so we'll have to wait a little while longer to work out who it is.

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

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

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.
