What skins inspire the most fear in Fortnite? Let’s take a look at the sweatiest Fortnite skins for 2020.
Terms like “sweaty” and “bot” have become mainstream gamer lingo since Fortnite grew to prominence. They’re words that every gamer explicitly understands without needing a definition.
“Sweaty skins” in Fortnite have been a trend since it first came out. In the early days, all skins were sweaty. They showed that you cared enough to spend money on a free game.
Now, with hundreds if not thousands of skins in Fortnite, the “sweaty skin” tag has narrowed, a bit. It also changes with the times. The sweatiest skins in Season 5 are not the sweatiest skins of today.
Let’s take a look at the sweatiest skins in Fortnite as of April 2020. This list will likely change, but a few of these will always maintain their stature.
We’ll start with the OG skins since these will always be sweaty. Of course, we’re talking about the OG Skull and Ghoul Trooper, Renegade Raider, Season 2 skins, etc.
The players who use these skins have been playing Fortnite since the early days – many of them non-stop. They want to show off, and their skins are the first manifestation of that.
The Soccer skin market has ebbed and flowed with the availability of the outfit. It used to be the sweatiest skin in Fortnite, hands-down, but constant releases diluted the space for a while.
Now, the Soccer skin is securely back in its place as one of the sweatiest skins in Fortnite. It’s been in the mix for a while, but it doesn’t look like the “sweaty Soccer skin” tag will ever leave.
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 Crystal, but Sparkplug skins are killers; more often than not.
Wonder is only a sweaty skin because of the number of hoops you would have had to jump through to get it. It was an exclusive skin to those who purchased the Honor 20 phone, but most players bought it from third-party sellers.
This skin was pricey when it hit the open market, and some fans were paying upwards of $50 or $60 to get it. Others got scammed and never saw their money or the skin, again.
Most of the time, the Wonder skin means that a player truly cares about Fortnite, and would go out of their way to secure an exclusive skin.
Bullseye has been one of the sweatier skins since it was first released. The recent re-release and additional variant did little to dilute the pool of players with the skin who are trying their hardest.
In fact, Bullseye is one of the hated-on-sight skins in Fortnite, much like the Soccer skins have become.
Cozy Command skins
Cozy Commander was introduced this past winter, but it’s already rising the ranks as one of the sweatiest skin sets in the game.
Most of the dressed-down skins in Fortnite get the “sweaty” tag, but these are one of the more frequent sights in high-level Fortnite play. If an opponent is wearing one of these, they’ve probably spent hundreds of dollars on V-Bucks only to main an $8 skin.
Banner Brigade skins
Banner Brigade may have overtaken the Soccer skins in terms of the sweatiest set in Fortnite. They offer substantial value for their price – only 800 V-Bucks with the ability to customize the style – but seem to be dominated by those at the top level.
As is the case with all of the skin sets: it’s the female variant that gets most of the clout. Male skins that aren’t OG don’t get much shine.
The skin made popular by FaZe Sway has a legion of fans that exclusively wear the Dark Bomber. OG Fortnite players remember when the Brite Bomber was the scariest skin to face. Now, the Dark Bomber has usurped it.
It’s easy to understand why this skin has become such a staple of the try-hard. It calls back to the Brite Bomber days with a twist – being a bit rarer than its Brite cousin.
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.
Crystal has, somehow, beat the odds to become the biggest try-hard skin in all of Fortnite. This might be because a ton of pros wear the skin. It’s the primary skin for World Cup Solo winner Bugha, as well.
Out of all of the skins in Fortnite, this one has to be the loudest proclamation that a player is trying. You must have at least 150 hours in Creative mode to wear this skin in-game.
So, there you have it: the top-ten sweatiest skins in Fortnite. Sure, we could have included a few more like the numerous no-skin variants, the Elite Agent, etc. but this list will have to do. Let us know which skins we missed in the comments and on Twitter.
Fortnite Season 4 Week 1 Challenge guide
How to complete the Fortnite Season 4 Week 1 challenges: Misty Meadows floating rings, Quinjet locations & more.
Fortnite Season 4 released today, August 27. This also marks the beginning of the seasonal challenges that we can expect to release each Thursday. It may be a new season, but most of the challenges have remained similar. We’ll be searching chests, eliminating players, and collecting floating rings.
Fortnite Season 4 Week 1 challenges:
- Search Chests at Dirty Docks (7)
- Eliminations at Holly Hedges (3)
- Collect Floating Rings at Misty Meadows (4)
- Eliminate Stark Robots at Quinjet Patrol landing sites (5)
- Gas a vehicle up at Lazy Lake
- Deal damage to opponents with Stark Industries Energy Rifles (1,000)
- Eliminate Doctor Doom at Doom’s Domain (3): 50,000 XP
- Deal damage to opponents at Craggy Cliffs (500)
Two of the Fortnite Season 4 Week 1 challenges revolve around Quinjet Patrol Landing sites, so it’s helpful to know where to find them. The Quinjets spawn shortly after the Battle Bus takes off, but you need to wait a bit before they show up on the map.
Once you have a few games under your belt, however, you’ll know where they land. These ships will be in the same location in every match – distinguishable by a while marker on your map. Here are the locations of all four of them.
Collect Floating Rings at Misty Meadows
The floating rings challenges are back for Season 4. These are always a bit of a hassle when trying to finish the challenges as fast as possible, but they’re easy to complete once you know where to look.
Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows an easy route to collecting all of these rings in only one minute.
The rest of these challenges should be easy to finish within a few matches of mindful playing. Eliminating Doctor Doom three times might be a hassle – Doom’s Domain is a hotspot for activity – but you’ll be able to finish the challenge within a handful of drops. We’ll be back next week with another challenge guide, so stay tuned!
First look at the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass
Fortnite Season 4 is here. Take a look at the full Season 4 Battle Pass here.
Today is the day! Fortnite Season 4 is here. With it, comes a brand new Battle Pass with new skins, gliders, emotes, loading screens, pickaxes, and more. As expected, almost all of these Battle Pass cosmetics relate to the Marvel crossover.
The servers are still down at the time of writing, but data miner Hypex was quick to leak all of the in-game cosmetics as soon as the Season 4 trailer finished playing. Speaking of that, you can take a look at the trailer below.
Again, we don’t have access to the full Fortnite Battle Pass just yet. For now, we’re going with the in-game leaks from ShiinaBR, m1fnbr, and Hypex.
We’ll make sure to update this post as soon as the servers open up and we’re able to capture the entire Battle Pass. Until then, this will have to do.
Update: ShiinaBR and m1fnbr have leaked the full Battle Pass. Here it is!
We’re excited to jump in and get our first win of the season. Speaking of that, we have a look at the new umbrella that we’ll get for winning. This is the best-looking one that we’ve seen in a while, in our opinion.
We’ll keep you posted with everything you need to know about the new Fortnite season, so make sure to stay tuned. Good luck to everyone grinding for their first win this morning!
Ewok signs an exclusive deal to return to Twitch
Fortnite streamer, Soleil “Ewok” Wheeler, is back where it all started: Twitch.TV.
Shroud’s return to Twitch dominated the headlines in gaming, yesterday, as fans eagerly await the news of Ninja’s new platform. As this was happening, fellow Mixer refugee, Soleil “Ewok” Wheeler, announced that she would be returning to Twitch with an exclusive deal, as well.
The 14-year-old Fortnite streamer told ESPN, “I decided to return to Twitch because the platform has a vast network, and I had already established a community there before switching over to Mixer. It’s also the best platform for me to continue building my brand. I also miss Twitch Rivals and meeting people that have supported me since day one.”
Ewok has had a massive two years in gaming, from being discovered by some of the biggest streamers on the platform to being signed by FaZe Clan to signing an exclusive deal with Mixer – all in 2019. Now, she returns to where it all started: Twitch.TV.
The streamer also served as a huge inspiration to the deaf community, showing everyone that she was one of the best Fortnite players in the world – even without sound or verbal communications.
Ewok, like most of the streamers who signed exclusive deals, got the best of both worlds after the Mixer shutdown. On Twitch, she’ll undoubtedly continue to grow her community and viewership.
