2021 was a great year for Fortnite fans with a ton of new Skins released, including many exciting collaborations with popular IPs. While the list of “Best Skins” could be much longer, here are some highlights from throughout the year.
Nalia came to Fortnite at the end of the year as part of Winterfest 2021. Nalia was one of the winning concepts picked from June’s Concept Royale.
The veteran COG soldier from the Gears of War series arrived in Fortnite late in the year, with many players wondering why this collaboration took so long to arrive in Fortnite as Epic is one of the developers of the series. Marcus Fenix is certainly an impressive addition to the game.
Arguably one of the best Crew skins to date, the Cube Assassin arrived as part of December’s Crew pack toward the end of Chapter 2.
An eagerly awaited collaboration, Naruto and his crew arrived in Fortnite after months of leaks saying he was coming, but with no date in sight.
Shadow Midas is the second version of the popular Fortnite character available to players for V-Bucks, allowing those who missed snagging the original in the Battle Pass to have a similar version Midas.
