Two of the most well-known skins in Fortnite history combine for this hilarious concept.
I’m not sure any skin has been quite as coveted as the John Wick skin. Coming with the Tier 100 for the Season 3 Battlepass, the skin was what got a lot of players really grinding Fortnite.
In Season 4, it was one of the most common skins and many memes were posted focusing on the pure intimidation of facing down a John Wick.
Even now with the skin much rarer in game, seeing a John Wick just means that person has been grinding Fortnite for nearly a year.
When the soccer skins were released alongside the World Cup, many players began associated them with some of the best players in the world.
As opposed to Wick, there isn’t any reason that these skins should be so good but they’ve come to be known as the mark of a solid player.
So all of that is to say that when TheFinalHoss says the “Reaper Keeper” is the king of all the sweatiest skins, they are probably correct.
The REAPER KEEPER
Just when you thought soccer skins couldn’t get any sweatier…

The save animation on this really brings the whole thing together. The concept works well for a couple of reasons.
First, Fortnite released soccer skins for a wide variety of positions but neglected the most important one on the field.
Second, John Wick would totally be a keeper. He isn’t the guy looking for goals or glory, he’s the grinder in the back keeping his head down and the job done.
It would be kinda complicated to figure out how this would be implemented as it takes from two different existing skins, still it is something we would love to see.
Every community-made Fortnite skin that made it into the game
The Fortnite community has grown to house a number of creative subcommunities from map makers to concept artists. Some community-made Fortnite skin concepts are so good, Epic Games couldn’t help but put them in the game.
Of the hundreds of skins that are in Fortnite, over 20 of them originated from a design made by a fan of the game. These outfits aren’t like the Icon Series which are made to look like a certain personality. Instead, the designer is credited with the creation of the skin and their work is shared on Twitter and other social media platforms.
Fortnite concept artists are found all over the internet from Reddit to Twitter to Instagram. And community-made Fortnite skins have been trickling into the game over the seasons. With a recent survey revealing more community-made skins that Epic Games is considering, it seems this trend is one Fortnite is going to continue.
Aura & Guild – Fantasyfull
Perhaps two of the most iconic skins in Fortnite, Aura and Guild were both concept skins created by Reddit user Fantasyfull. Guild isn’t as frequently used as his counterpart, but Aura is known to be one of the sweatiest skins in Fortnite. They also have a winter variant also designed by Fantasyfull.
Boxer & Boxy – Sharktoofs
Boxer and Boxy belong to the Cardboard Crew set, and they were both designed by Reddit user Sharktoofs. They were also given a Scare Package variant to celebrate the 2020 Fortnitemares event.
Britestorm Bomber – SweetRabbitFN
Britestorm Bomber is a community-made take on the Brite Bomber skin from Chapter 1. This skin was designed by SweetRabbitFN on Twitter and comes with a dark Cloudburst Bomber variant.
Comfy Chopms & Cozy Chomps – Sharktoofs
Another concept designed by Sharktoofs, the Comfy/Cozy Chomps skins are part of the Feeding Frenzy set. These two outfits feature both a male and a female character wearing full-body shark pajamas.
Dark Rex – Nollobandz
Dark Rex is a dark variant of the Rex skin, but is sold as a separate skin. This corrupted take on a prehistoric classic was created by Reddit user Nollobandz.
Eco – Nollobandz
Another concept skin created by Nollobands, Eco’s entire body features easter eggs relating to the Season 1 map.
Etheria – Aestheticdemon
Etheria is one of the latest community-made concept skins to make it into Fortnite. Twitter user Aestheticdemon‘s Etheria concept was introduced in Chapter 2 Season 6.
Isabelle – D3NNI_YT
Isabelle is one of the concept skins made by Twitter user D3NNI_YT. This skin is part of the Oakwitch Academy set and comes with four different style variants.
Lyra – Nollobandz
A skin that has yet to be released, Lyra is another concept created by Nollobandz. She resembles a 21st century Medusa and is part of a real-money purchasable pack. She also comes with her own set of quests.
Marigold – Kitsunexkitsu
Marigold is the female counterpart to the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 level 100 skin Midas. This community-made Fortnite skin was created by Twitter user Kitsunexkitsu and was sold as a real-money bundle with her own set of challenges.
Marius – Easkateconcepts
Marius is a double-agent that works for both Team Ghost and Team Shadow, the two teams introduced in Chapter 2 Season 2. As such, the skins created by Easkateconcepts come with a black and a white variant.
Meowscles – Rexsadio
Meowscles is a fan-favorite skin from Chapter 2 Season 2, and was a long time coming. A small headshot of Meowscles appeared in a loading screen in Chapter 1 Season 7, and Reddit user Rexsadio developed a skin concept from the headshot. The concept was then turned into the buff cat we know and love today.
Mystify – Jazzibean
Mystify is the female counterpart to Cryptic. Both are reskins of Teknique and Abstrakt which were introduced as a part of the Chapter 1 Season 4 Battle Pass. Mystify’s concept art was created by former Reddit user JazziBean.
Patch – BeefSans
The pumpkin-wearing female skin Patch debuted during the Fortnitemares event in 2020. Patch was designed by former Twitter user BeefSans.
Pinkie – Fantasyfull
Pinkie is another concept skin made by the creator of Aura and Guild. Fantasyfull’s design was debuted around Valentine’s Day 2020.
Rapscallion & Scoundrel – Rexsadio
Another skin duo designed by Rexsadio, the Rapscallion and Scoundrel outfits are part of the Jailbird set. Introduced in Chapter 1 Season 4, this pair is one of the oldest community-made concepts to make it into Fortnite.
Snowbell – D3NNI_YT
D3NNI_YT’s first concept skin made it into Fortnite earlier this year. Snowbell is a holiday-themed outfit that acts as the female counterpart to the Codename E.L.F skin.
Tender Defender – Tfoust10’s son
Tender Defender is one of the most ludicrous skins in Fortnite, and that’s because it was designed by an 8-year-old. Reddit user Tfoust10’s son requested that he post the artwork on Reddit in hopes of it getting in the game. To his surprise, it actually worked.
Tomatohead – Tursuboi
Tomatohead is an iconic community-made Fortnite skin for many reasons, but mainly because of his frequent appearances in Fortnite promotional art. The concept art for this skin was posted to Reddit by user Tursuboi roughly three months before its appearance in-game.
Brilliant Fortnite concept brings back the Rift-To-Go in a unique way
With the rumored return of the Rift-To-Go, this concept fits the current Fortnite chapter, perfectly.
Rifts are appearing more and more frequently around the map in Chapter 2 Season 4. The beginning of the season featured no rifts, but that number has now grown to the double-digits after the introduction of Marvel POIs and the implementation of Fortnitemares.
It seems like rifts are, slowly but surely, making their way back into the Fortnite meta. This could usher-in a fan-favorite returning item in the Rift-To-Go, which most fans would love to see in the game.
The Rift-To-Go was the Ace-in-the-hole during a Fortnite battle. In over you head? No problem, just hit the Rift-To-Go and reposition yourself. In competitive play, the Rift-To-Go was a must-carry for rotational purposes. All around, it was one of the best mobility items in Fortnite and few players would have anything bad to say about it.
We think that a return of the Rift-To-Go is more than likely in the near future, but Epic have an opportunity to but a Cheaper 2 spin on the classic item, What if you could catch a Rift in the same way that you catch Fireflies? That’s what Reddit user u/Star_Wyse is proposing.
With Chapter 2’s implementation of foraged items, Epic allowed players to pick up Mushrooms, Apples, and more to save them for later. A similar mechanic for Rifts would make a lot of sense.
Most of the Fortnite concepts that we see are far-fetched or too good to be true. This one isn’t and seems to fit exactly in-line with what Epic have been doing, lately.
Will the Rift-To-Go return for Fortnite Season 5? Only time will tell. If it does, we hope to see some mechanic like this play a role in its return.
PS5 Fortnite trailer fuels custom kill animation concept
Could customizeable elimination animations be coming in Fortnite Season 5?
Yesterday, September 16, Sony revealed the new PlayStation 5 along with some games that will be coming to the next-gen console. The company also used Fortnite as one of their returning games, showing players the visual enhancements that will come with the PS5.
Some of these improvements may be exclusive to the new PlayStation, but the trailer also showed us a handful of changes that will likely apply to all platforms – not just the PS5.
We touched on a lot of these changes in an article, yesterday, but fans have taken the speculation a step further since the trailer came out. Specifically, Fortnite players zeroed-in on the changed elimination animation that you see in the trailer.
This, along with the update Chug Jug and flame effects, was the central focus of the trailer for a lot of viewers. Clearly, Epic are planning on changing the elimination animations in the future.
Some players are suggesting that this change could point to Epic adding a customizable elimination animation for players.
It would make sense for Epic to add something like this. The more cosmetic options they have, the more money-making opportunities there are. Imagine if the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass contained unique kill animations for the first time. Who wouldn’t buy that?
Games like Valorant already have a variation of this feature. Another Epic Games title, Rocket League, has its own version of this as well: customizeable goal animations. This concept is far from confirmed, but it’s a realistic addition for which we can hope.
