The top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite (2022)

Fortnite sweats love to use a particular set of cosmetics for aesthetic or advantage. Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite.

Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. If you see a player wearing any of these, it might be best to avoid them at all costs.

It’s time for another installment of Fortnite Intel’s annual top 10 sweatiest cosmetics. Last year, we ranked the customizable superhero skin as the sweatiest skin, but does it still hold up?

As most players know, a Fortnite sweat isn’t only distinguishable by their skin. Their pickaxe and back bling also tell a story, which is why we opened this list to include additional sweaty Fortnite cosmetics.

As we said, a lot of the skins from last year are still drenched in sweat, and you’ll see a lot of them on this list. Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite.

Renegade Raider

This might be a shock to see at number 10 on our list, but Renegade Raider doesn’t carry the weight it use to. If you see one in-game, you’re in for a pretty hard fight. However, seeing one is few and far between.

Owning Renegade Raider is a badge of honor and a symbol that you’ve been in the game for a long while. But you’re probably more likely to get struck by lightning than to see a Renegade Raider in Fortnite.

Recon Expert

In our first article, we listed the “OG Skins” as some of the sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. Let’s be real. A lot of the sweatiest players today weren’t playing when Renegade Raider and Black Knight were available. However, the “recent” release of a certain OG Skin has a lot of sweaty players pretending they were playing in 2017.

The Recon Expert was a rare skin, but new sweats were given the opportunity to purchase it after its re-release. Unlike Ghoul Trooper or Skull Trooper, OG owners weren’t given an exclusive style. Now, it’s impossible to discern an OG sweat from a wannabe.

NBA Skins

Another sports skin has been added since last year’s list, and it’s the set of customizable basketball players. During last year’s NBA crossover, players could purchase eight different basketball skins which are all extremely customizable.

Not only can players make their own jerseys, but they can also rep their favorite sports team. And of course, female skins are preferred due to their smaller visual profile.

Studded Axe

The Studded Axe is one of the sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite due to its competitive advantage. This bad boy barely makes a sound when it’s harvesting mats, and its sleek design makes it harder to see.

It’s also in the Item Shop quite frequently, so wannabe pro-players have the opportunity to purchase it every month or so. There are other axes that are just as quiet but harder to obtain. That’s why you’ll run into a lot of sweaty players running the Studded Axe

Sparkplug

Sparkplug, like a lot of skins on this list, is the skin of a Creative Warrior. It’s not as common as some of the others on the list, but it’s sweaty, nonetheless.

In my experience, a Sparkplug skin is often the real deal. You have a lot of pretenders wearing Soccer skins and Star Wands, but Sparkplug skins are killers; more often than not.

Aura

Aura was one of those skins that you knew would be ‘sweaty,’ and it didn’t disappoint. For some reason, Aura became the primary skin of several pro-Fortnite players and sweats across the world.

Why is this skin so sweaty? It’s hard to tell. All we know is that an Aura either means business or thinks that they’re better than they are.

Soccer Skins

Soccer skins have been and likely always will be near the top of this list. These are iconic skins for sweaty players. Mainly younger players who had to coax their parents into buying them V-Bucks so they could buy their own customizable skin.

They aren’t nearly as popular now as many other skins on this list. That being said, you know you’re in for a fight if you see one. A sweat who continues to wear their soccer skin probably spends more time in creative courses than the actual game, and they are ready to taste blood

Star Wand

The Star Wand is by far the sweatiest pickaxe in Fortnite. Why? We have no idea. A handful of pros use it. It makes minimal noise when swung. But it isn’t all that rare. Seeing it in-game is infuriating because you know they’re going to kick your butt.

However, its sweatiness is undeniable. It’s a well-known meme in the Fortnite community that the Star Wand is used exclusively by sweats. Maybe players are hoping that the wand will be bugged again to deal 75 damage per swing. That likely won’t happen, but that won’t stop sweaty players from hoping

Superhero Skins

Our reigning champions have been dethroned. Mainly because the Superhero, or officially named Boundless, skin sets have been banned from competitive play entirely.

You’ll still get sweated on by fully white or fully black skins in casual lobbies, but comp players have been rid of the superhero menaces.

Scarlet Commander

Coming in at number one is actually our second sweatiest skin from last year. Plenty of competitive players still use this skin thanks to its dark color palette. Since a certain skin we just talked about has been banned from comp, players are looking for a new skin that will give them an advantage.

The Scarlet Commander is almost completely black with a few dark red accents and minimally exposed flesh. In dark areas and at night, Scarlet Commander is near invisible. Go ahead and open Twitch right now or during a tournament. I guarantee one of the top Fortnite streamers is currently using this skin.

So, there you have it: the ten sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. It will be interesting to see which skins, pickaxes, back bling, and even gliders take over the throne over the course of the next year.

We’re sure that we missed a few cosmetics, as we only limited our list to ten. Let us know what we skipped on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.

Is Darth Vader going to be Fortnite Season 3?

A recent Epic Games livestream has the Fortnite community believing that Darth Vader will be coming to the game during Season 3.

A clip from a recent Epic Games showcase has players believing Darth Vader is coming to Fortnite, but are the rumors true?

During a State of Unreal Showcase on April 5, 2022, a clip was shown of a Fortnite developer working on in-game content. But a list of files on another desktop has caught the Fortnite community’s eye.

The folders were named after several assets already in Fortnite. Characters such as Madcap, Pyro, Loki, and LeBron. But there were other folders named after content that hadn’t been released.

While the folder names are blurry, squinting leakers have deciphered the digital letters. These include Doom, Family Guy, and a folder titled C3S3_VADER.

Darth Vader folder spotted during showcase

Leakers were quick to share the screenshot and speculate the arrival of Darth Vader. “DARTH VADER MIGHT BECOME A SKIN IN SEASON 3”, Shiina tweeted as soon as the news broke.

It’s even more convincing since the folder is so cryptically named. It shares the same naming scheme as several of Fortnite’s in-game assets: C3S3_VADER.

Is Darth Vader coming to Fortnite?

Right now, we don’t know. It is entirely possible as Epic Games has a good relationship with Disney. As well, there have already been several Star Wars skins added to the game already.\

That being said, all of the Star Wars skins in-game are from Episodes 7-9. Darth Vader would be the first Star Wars skin to reference the original trilogy, let alone the first six movies.

Only time will tell whether the leak is real or if Epic Games is just teasing us.

Until then, check out the latest patch notes from Fortnite Season 2, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite x Assassin’s Creed: Ezio and Eivor skins, release date, price

Two iconic Assassin’s Creed characters are coming to Fortnite soon, and here is everything we know about the Ezio and Eivor skins.

Fortnite is crossing over with Assassin’s Creed to add two iconic characters from the franchise to the Battle Royale roster.

Assassin’s Creed is not only one of Ubisoft’s most iconic franchises, but is one of the most widely recognized series in all of gaming. And since Fortnite adds Gaming Legends to its roster, it only makes sense that Assassin’s Creed would make the cut.

Ezio Auditore was found in the game’s files at the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, but was never officially released. Now, a second character from the Assassin’s Creed universe has been revealed along with a release date.

Here is everything we know about the Ezio and Eivor skins coming to Fortnite.

Ezio is likely the most well-known Assassin’s Creed character as he appeared in Assassin’s Creed II, Revelations, and Brotherhood. Eivor, on the other hand, is one of the leading characters in the latest installment, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

The Ezio Outfit comes with his Hidden Blade pickaxe and a built-in emote. He also has an unhooded bonus style.

Eivor also comes with a hooded style variant, as well as a slew of cosmetics. The base skin includes the Eivor Shield Back Bling and Raven Clan Pickaxe, which come with a built-in emote.

Players can also purchase the Wolf-Kisses Longboat Glider separately. A bundle includes all of the Eivor items and some exclusive gear: Wolf-Kissed spray, Eivor’s Fury Loading Screen, Raven Clan Emoticon, and Tales from the Animus banner.

The skins will drop into the Fortnite Item Shop on April 7 at 8 PM EST. However, Epic Games hasn’t stated how long the items will stay in the shop.

Assassin’s Creed cosmetic prices

We don’t know the exact price of the Assassin’s Creed skins quite yet, but we can make an educated guess. The prices of the previous Gaming Legends skins have been between 1,500 and 1,600 V-Bucks.

The cosmetic bundle will likely discount the items making them slightly more affordable.

The second Concept Royale is here, and two skilled designers will have their spooky skins brought to life in Fortnite.

In June of 2021, Fortnite announced the first-ever Concept Royale. Given the theme of frosty and festive, players were challenged to design their own skins with a chance they’d end up in-game.

Winners Ladiale and Alta had their skins added to the game in December. And now, it’s time for Concept Royale round 2.

Here’s everything you need to know about designing and submitting your skins for Concept Royale 2.

Fortnite Concept Royale 2022 details

This time around, players can ditch the frosty and festive designs and focus on spooky and creepy characters. That’s because Concept Royale 2022 is themed around the Fortnitemares event.

Epic Games is looking for Halloween-themed skin designs, and the top two will be put in Fortnite. To submit your skins, post them to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ConceptRoyaleContest2022.

Players have from March 7 at 10 AM EST until April 5 at 11:59 PM EST to submit their skins. Each participant is limited to one submission.

You must be 13 years or older to participate. Winners will also receive a $2,500 cash prize and their skins will be in the Item Shop during the Fortnitemares 2022 event.
