Fortnite August 2021 skins: all upcoming Fortnite skins and how to get them
Fortnite just won’t stop with its brilliant collaborations and continues to give players plenty of options for new cosmetics. We know it’s tough to keep pace, so we’re here to walk you through all of the Fortnite skins you’ll get your hands on in August 2021.
Fortnite Season 7 has arrived and it looks to be quite different from what we’re used to. Expect to see this page updated with Fortnite skins based on aliens and other weird creatures. We imagine that pop culture collaborations won’t stop anytime soon either.
We’ve rounded up all of the Fortnite skins we plan to land in battle royale in August 2021, including the Epic Games confirmed skins and rumored ones – but don’t worry, we’ve made it clear which ones are which. So, read on for all the Fortnite skins we are expecting in the near future so that you look trendy while racking up eliminations.
Fortnite skins officially unveiled
J Balvin – Icon Series
Another musician will get a Fortnite skin in their honor, J Balvin. Epic teased the collaboration with the image above on their official website Fortnite Twitter Account.
We’re not sure if J Balvin will be featured in his own gig as well, but given it’s so close to Ariana Grande’s recent show, we’d be surprised to see anything substantial, but we could be wrong. Most likely, he will do another Party Royale performance at best.
It is not yet known when he will be released, but watch for the arrival of J Balvin soon.
Another DC hero received a Fortnite skin, this time it’s Wonder Woman. We are surprised that it took him so long to make his appearance, but eventually the Amazon warrior entered the battle.
Unfortunately, her bracelets seem to have lost their defensive properties (so they won’t protect you), but if you don’t mind, head to the Item Shop to collect Wonder Woman’s skin for 1,600 V-Bucks. You can also hook up his battle ax and glider while you’re at it.
Hammer Morty may have appeared in the game as Rick’s Pickaxe before, but now the boy himself has arrived on Fortnite Island.
We don’t know what it feels like to fight a real child; he is canonically 14 years old even if some of his adventures can make us forget his young age. However, you can put this to your advantage if you choose to play the new Morty skin, as you may find that people are more reluctant to take you down.
Mecha Morty is now available in the Item Shop (for 1,500 V-Bucks), alongside the Space Snake Pickaxe, Look at Me! the weapon wrap and Get Schwifty emote. All of these can be purchased together in a bundle for 2,200 V-Bucks.
Superman – Season 7 Battle Pass
After his identity goggles were teased by the official Fortnite Twitter account, it is confirmed that Superman will be appearing as a Fortnite skin in Season 7. The Man of Steel is available through the Battle Pass which you can purchase right now.
Although you have to complete special challenges before you can unlock Superman himself, as he is the secret skin. The good news is, you won’t have to complete the rest of the battle pass first.
As always, you can either buy the Battle Pass alone for 950 V-Bucks or get Fortnite Crew. It costs $ 11.99 (Â£ 9.99 / AU $ 15.99) but includes additional cosmetics and 1,000 V-Bucks while also getting you the Battle Pass.
Summer Skye – Fortnite Crew August 2021
The August Fortnite Crew Pack celebrates an old favorite Fortnite skin, Skye. The skin shows off its summer beach-inspired variation, with shorts and no beanie. An alternative look for the skin has an almost Halloween design that uses oranges and blacks.
Along with the Summer Skye skin, you’ll also get a sword and shield, her sword as a pickaxe, and a few Meowcles-inspired weapon envelopes. Fortnite Crew costs $ 11.99 (Â£ 9.99 / AU $ 15.99) per month and will net you 1,000 V-Bucks plus the Battle Pass if you don’t currently have it.
Fortnite Skins Rumors
Twitter user and leaker @ShiinaBR suggested that Peacemaker could succeed Bloodsport as a new connection to The Suicide Squad. The same person who leaked Bloodsport suggested that the character of John Cena could appear as well, which means we could see the character appear soon.
We don’t have anything more concrete like in-game files, so take that with a pinch of salt, but we could see Peacemaker arrive in January 2022 when his new show is due out on HBO Max.
Samus Aran – Nintendo’s Bounty Hunter
@GenosPapa Dual reveals Samus in Fortnite and Jonesy in Smash at E3? LET’S GO GOOOOO! pic.twitter.com/gAxb84xFZ7May 19, 2021
In Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, many fans requested that Nintendo be represented by an in-game skin after Xbox and PlayStation obtained their pets in the Battle Royale. The obvious choice was the Samus bounty hunter from the Metroid series – but she never showed up.
Leaked documents shared on Twitter from Epic Games’ legal battle against Apple indicate that Samus is / was scheduled to appear in the game (alongside several other characters like Naruto and Ariana Grande). The above panel from the third issue of the Batman Zero Point series adds to the speculation that the character could still arrive after fans spotted a figure that looks a lot like Samus.
Take this rumor with an unhealthy amount of salt, but it could mean Samus could arrive as a Fortnite skin soon.
Investigative skins disclosed
Here are ALL of 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: Several Fortnite leaks on Twitter shared footage from a recent Epic investigation showing several new skin designs. In it, the company has detailed the potential Fortnite skins and included images of the ones we could possibly see added to the game.
You can see it all 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 idea if any of these skins will ever be added to the game, but be on the lookout for seasons to come.
The Foundation – Leader of the Seven
The Foundation, a character who appeared in the epic Fortnite Season 5 event, is expected to become 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.
Leak Hypex found some skin related files in the game so it can be on the way sooner than that, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
