The Fortnite Season 4 skins are here now that the brand new seasonal event for the Battle Royale game has kicked off, and you can find out all about the new Fortnite skins right here in this guide. We'll be running through the very best items that you can both unlock straight away, and those that you'll have to level up your Battle Pass in order to obtain, including the Squad Leader, Omega, and Valor skins.
If you instead need anything else on Fortnite Season 4, including how to purchase the various versions of the new Battle Pass and undertake these new challenges, as well as all the new character skins you can unlock straight away, make sure to head over to our Fortnite Season 4 guides hub.
Fortnite Season 4 New Skins
We mentioned at the top that you’ll need to purchase the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass if you want to gain access to some of the more elusive skins on offer in the game, and to do that you’ll need to shell out a total of 950 V-Bucks at a minimum, which will set you back by $9.99.
As soon as you’ve unlocked the Battle Pass for Fortnite Season 4, you’ll gain access to the Carbide and Battlehawk skins, both of which you can see displayed below:
However after this, you’ll need to level up your Battle Pass ranking if you want to unlock any of the new Fortnite Season 4 skins that we’re about to showcase. In order to level up your Battle Pass to new ranks, you’ll need to obtain a certain amount of Bronze Stars from completing Challenges. For example we’re on Tier 6 right now, and to level up our Battle Pass to Tier 7 and unlock Gale Force Harvesting Tool, you’ll need to obtain ten Bronze Stars from Challenges.
While some Fortnite Challenges are easy to complete, others are far more challenging. You can undertake three different Daily Challenges every day, each of which will reward you with five Bronze Star apiece, but you can also undertake Weekly Challenges, which reward you with even more Bronze Stars. For a complete walkthrough of how to complete the initial Weekly Challenges, head over to our Fortnite Week 1 Challenges guide.
Otherwise, check out the complete list of Fortnite Season 4 skins that you’ll be able to earn over the course of Season 4, provided you’re willing to put in enough work to unlock the relevant Tiers depicted in the screenshots.
Fortnite Season 4 Skin Upgrades
Although there are the usual elite skins like the Squad Leader and Valor skins that you can obtain for your Fortnite character in Season 4, the challenge doesn't end at simply obtaining them. For the first time in Fortnite as part of Season 4, you can actually upgrade certain skins after you've obtained them, through completing challenges that will appear on the 'Battle Pass Challenges' section of the 'Challenges' tab once you've unlocked them.
One such skin that you can upgrade is the elite Omega skin, the final item you'll unlock as part of Fortnite Season 4 once you've ranked up your Battle Pass to level 100. For a full guide on how to both obtain and then upgrade this legendary skin as quickly as possible for your character, head over to our Fortnite Omega skin guide.
Keep in mind that we’ll be continually updating this Fortnite Season 4 skins guide whenever Epic releases any new cosmetics into the game. For example we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for the addition of the Raven skin, as well as any other elite cosmetics.
We might be all done with our Fortnite Season 4 skins guide, but head over to our Fortnite Mobile guide, or our Fortnite Week 1 Challenges guide, where we can walk you through how to complete every new challenge as part of Fortnite Season 4. Elsewhere we've got guides to the Fortnite Week 2 Challenges and the Fortnite Week 3 Challenges.
