We are now in the ninth season of Fortnite and each Season has brought a stash of new exclusive Outfits to the game. We’d like to share our opinions on which are the best and which are the absolute worst.
Epic Games could not have imagined the immense success that Fortnite would achieve. In fact, at first, the whole game’s launch seemed like a failure. Of course, that all changed with the release of the Battle Royale mode.
As the BR experience developed, Epic decided to start adding ‘Seasons’ and ‘Outfits’ to the mix. As it turns out, we all loved the idea and couldn’t stop buying these artistic wonders since.
Now, we want to take a look at the Battle Pass Outfits specifically and give the a proper ranking. You might not agree with every placement, but the list is still a great trip down memory lane! Let’s start…there’s a lot of them.
There are 56 Fortnite Battle Pass skins in total as of Season 9. (Images are courtesy of ProGameGuides).
Top 10 Seasonal Battle Pass Outfits
10. Calamity – Season 6 Battle Pass
Calamity marked a bit of an evolution of Fortnite Battle Skins. Styles were just becoming a staple and Calamity had many more than other skins. Along with the Western themes and dynamic cloak mechanics, we had to include her in the Top 10.
9. Bunker Jonesy – Season 9 Battle Pass
Bunker Jonesy gets onto our Top 10 due to two reasons. One, the slightly comical art design. And two, his progressive role in the Fortnite story. Lore isn’t the main part of Fortnite, but the background story has already interested us. Jonesy embodies the player on their journey through the world.
8. Rox – Season 9 Battle Pass
Rox is a recent outfit added in Season 9’s Battle Pass. The striking visual design of the neo-futuristic garments matches well with the Season’s themes. It may just be the hype for Cyberpunk 2077 talking, but Rox rocks!
7. Demi – Season 9 Battle Pass
While the model for Demi has been used in the past, the design of this Season 9 outfit is superb. While the other skins show the obvious and eccentric sides of the future, Demi displays the less flamboyant. The robotic arm cleanly compliments the rest of her and the headset brings a nice touch as well. You can see the inspiration from Ada Wong too.
6. Ice King – Season 7 Battle Pass
Season 7’s iceberg changed Fortnite’s landscape forever and we still fear the Ice King’s wrath. Speaking of inspiration from other franchises, it’s safe to say that the art designer has played a bit of World of Warcraft. Who would win in a fight, the Ice King or the Lich King?
5. Rook – Season 5 Battle Pass
While many of the entries on this list come from criminal or ‘evil’ background, Rook’s a straight shooter. Desk duty wasn’t the life she’d expected, so she decided to jump into field work. The shotgun shells signal that she’s ready for a fight!
4. The Reaper – Season 3 Battle Pass
No matter what Donald Mustard might say, The Reaper IS John Wick. When the skin released in Season 3, many players simply bought the whole Battle Pass just to play him day one. The black on black on slate black design looks perfect for ‘sweaty’ players.
3. Ember – Season 8 Battle Pass
The second we saw an elf in Fortnite, we had to have it. An elf that controls the power of fire with her hands? Yeah, that’s worth the price. The contrasting color of her dark skin and white hair make for a intense character with depth.
2. Black Knight – Season 2 Battle Pass
Ok, the Black Knight is not the most intricate skin ever released, but he was a sign of things to come. In Season 2, when you saw a Black Knight, you knew the player wasn’t playing around. The red glow, the accents on his chest, and the medieval style all combine into a masterwork.
1. Lynx – Season 7 Battle Pass
Lynx had to be our number 1 pick for several reasons. First, the Outfit has dramatically different looks between the early and late Stages. Second, the sleek body armor of the Fortnite’s Black Panther looks incredibly clean and meticulously designed. When you play as Lynx, you actually feel like you gain a newfound ability to traverse fights with deadly grace.
