Most popular Fortnite skins in Season 4 – Iron Man, Aura & more

Ever wonder which Fortnite skins are the most popular? Data miner, Lucas7yoshi, took it upon himself to find out.

The most popular skins in Fortnite Season 4 are largely comprised of the Marvel Battle Pass, but other popular skins have stood the test of time.

Fortnite players love their cosmetics – possibly more than any other community in gaming. Having an “OG” skin immediately gives you a position of authority in any Creative lobby, even if you haven’t played the game since those skins were new.

We often wonder which skins and emotes the community uses the most but had no way of knowing for sure. Data miner Lucas7Yoshi had an idea of gathering this information: take a massive number of replay files, analyze them, and find out which cosmetics are the most commonly selected.

Most Popular Skins in Fortnite

What Lucas7Yoshi found was relatively predictable, which makes sense. We see these skins in almost every match, which is why they’re the most common in the game right now. Of course, his method wasn’t flawless, but it was as close as we could get without the raw numbers from Epic Games.

Unsurprisingly, the Marvel skins from the Season 4 Battle Pass top the charts, with Tony Stark, Jennifer Walters, Mystique, Doctor Doom, and Wolverine all making the top six. At the four spot is Aura – which might be the most popular skin in all of Fortnite, regardless of which season we’re talking about. The same can be said of Crystal at number nine.

Venom and Mogul Master stand out as surprises, but these are probably a result of the recency of the study. The Nick Eh 30 pack included Mogul Master, and Venom is the most recent Marvel skin added to the game.

Most Popular Emotes in Fortnite

The most popular emotes in Fortnite was more interesting to us, as it showed a couple of emotes that continue to stand the test of time. Of course, you have the newer TikTok-style emotes that Epic have added, and you’ve likely seen or used them in several matches.

“Laugh it Up” – which might be the most triggering emote in the game – is securely at the number-one spot on the board. We expect that “Take The L” would be on here as well, but that emote was a part of an old Battle Pass, and newer players don’t have it.

“Dance Moves” is a classic that everyone has access to, but “Have a Seat” comes as a surprise. We love this emote but didn’t know that so many others felt the same.

Hopefully, Lucas7Yoshi keeps up with this project, and it only becomes more accurate over time. We’re excited to see which skins and emotes stand the test of time and which fall by the wayside after a season ends. If he completes the same process next season, we doubt that these Marvel skins will make the top ten.

PC Fortnite players should head over to Lucas7Yoshi’s Discord server if you want to help out with the project. The more replay files he has, the more accurate his information will be. Let’s see what happens in Season 5.

How to get all seven Fortnite x Batman Zero Point cosmetics

The Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point cosmetics are easier to get than ever now that a hardcover collection can be preordered.

Fortnite batman zero point comics

The Fortnite x Batman Zero Point cosmetics are highly sought after items that can only be obtained using special codes. These codes come with each issue of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comics, but they can be difficult to get ahold of.

On April 14, 2021, Epic Games announced another crossover comic series featuring Fortnite characters, but this time it was with DC. Similar to the Season 4 crossover with Marvel, Fortnite Season 6 features a superhero crossover with DC’s Batman.

In the first issue was released on April 20 and introduced readers to Batman’s newest storyline. Trapped in the same loop as Fortnite’s inhabitants, Batman is forced to set up a temporary Bat Cave. However, Batman will have to solve the mystery of the Zero Point while time resets itself every 22 minutes.

Epic Games revealed that every physical issue would come with a special code that unlocks an exclusive item in Fortnite. While the crossover storyline is a cool addition to the game, most players will be more interested in getting the cosmetics.

The other issues are scheduled to release on May 4, May 18, June 1, June 15, and July 6. Each issue will come with a code, and players who redeem all six codes will get a bonus cosmetic. The seventh being the Armored Batman skin. However, there is an easier way to get the codes rather than hunting for each individual issue.

A hardcover edition that includes every issue of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point series is for sale on Amazon. The downside is that it won’t release until September 7. While that may be two months after the final issue of the series releases, the hardcover comes with a single code that will unlock all seven DC-themed cosmetics.

The hardcover is $15.92 USD and is currently up for preorder. This also makes it much cheaper than buying all six issues individually. The cosmetic codes can also be obtained digitally by those who have a DC Universe Infinite subscription. Yet, that will still cost more than purchasing the hardcover book.

When Travis Scott & Marshmello will return to Fortnite’s Item Shop

Travis Scott and Marshmello have been away from Fortnite’s Item Shop for over a year, but they could return sometime soon.

Marshmello Travis Scott Item Shop Fortnite

It’s been over a year since the Travis Scott or Marshmello skins have been in the Fortnite Item Shop, but a recent update hints at their return.

Both Travis Scott and Marshmello were added to Fortnite around the time of their in-game concerts. Marshmello had a smaller live event at the start of 2019, while Travis Scott had a massive in-game experience in April of 2020.

While both of these skins are fan favorites, neither have been featured in Fortnite’s Item Shop in over a year. The Travis Scott skin has been gone for 367 days, and Marshmello has been missing for 641. However, they could be making their return soon.

Travis Scott Fortnite Astronomical Concert

Data miners are able to make educated guesses on when an item is returning to the shop due to skins being updated with each patch. Fortnite v16.20 updated the Travis Scott set, and the Marshmello set was updated with v16.30.

Other skins were also updated in the v16.30 patch that appeared in Fortnite’s Item Shop shortly after. While some cosmetics are updated to change their appearance or add different styles, the Travis Scott and Marshmello skins haven’t had any physical changes.

Fans speculated that Travis Scott would return on either his skin’s anniversary or on Scott’s birthday. Since the anniversary of when the skin was last available has come and gone, players will have to wait until April 30 to see if Travis Scott will return.

As for Marshmello, there aren’t any solid dates to go off of. The EDM musician could return at the same time as Travis Scott or sometime before v16.40. However, there is no guarantee that Marshmello will return anytime soon.

That being said, it is unusual for Fortnite to update a skin’s API and not have them appear in the shop soon after. A major update for Fortnite is pushed out every two weeks, so it could be presumed that Marshmello will return to the Item Shop before May 10.

Justin Jefferson will be the first-ever NFL player to be featured in Fortnite with the addition of his own Icon Series emote and Locker Bundle.

The Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Justin Jefferson is known for celebrating touchdowns with the iconic Griddy Dance. Fortnite players will be able to style on their opponents with the official emote. Fortnite has also taken this crossover one step further by giving Jefferson his own Locker Bundle.

Fortnite has a ton of emotes inspired by viral videos or online trends. There are also various emotes made in collaboration with internet personalities, movies, and other video games. However, specific athletic superstars are just now starting to be featured in Fortnite.

How to get Fortnite Justin Jefferson Griddy Dance emote

With the addition of pro footballer Neymar Jr., sports icons are finding their place in Fortnite. Now, American football player Justin Jefferson follows Neymar’s lead by blazing a trail for other athletes.

Fortnite announced Jefferson’s crossover emote alongside his official Locker Bundle, which comes with the emote. The bundle also includes the Hit Man outfit and back bling, Weathered Gold pickaxe, Arcade Kid wrap, and Signature Shuffle emote. The bundle and emote will land in Fortnite’s Item Shop on April 28 ahead of the NFL Draft.

The Get Griddy Fortnite emote is a traversal emote, meaning players will be able to move just like Justin Jefferson when he’s cruising into the end zone. It also features the song Right Foot Creep by YoungBoy Never Broke Again.

Despite this crossover featuring Justin Jefferson, Fortnite does note in an official release that the Griddy Dance was created in 2017 by Allen “Griddy” Davis, a former high school football player. Some fans are disappointed that long-time Fortnite fan and NFL wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster wasn’t chosen to be featured.

Regardless, the Justin Jefferson Get Griddy emote will be a very sporty addition to any player’s locker. Adding athletic superstars to Fortnite’s massive roster of crossovers pushes the game one step closer to becoming Donald Mustard’s metaverse.
