What is the rarest skin in Fortnite? The battle royale has been accumulating skins for years now, with hundreds now available in the game. But some of those skins are harder to find than others.

What is the Rarest Skin in Fortnite?

The oldest skins in the game tend to be among the rarest, as only those who hopped onto the Battle Bus before it dominated the entire video gaming world had a chance to buy the skins. Epic Games has, in some ways, undermined the rarity of some of those ancient skins by re-releasing them.

There remain a few Fortnite skins — largely unremarkable from a visual aesthetic standpoint — that have not seen such a re-release. Of those, likely the hardest to find is Recon Expert. First released in 2017, the skin hasn't been available for purchase since November 2017. It originally sold for 1,200 V-Bucks.

It's impossible to say which skin is the least-owned in Fortnite, as Epic Games doesn't release skin ownership numbers, but Recon Expert has one of the strongest cases for the title.

Recently, data mining has revealed Epic Games may re-release Recon Expert with a new, hatless style in Fortnite Update 12.60. The developer has yet to confirm this plan.
