Skins Players Want for Fortnite
People have an affinity for dressing up as someone, or something, they’re not (case in point: cosplay). This extends to player avatars in any video game that allows customization. Features allowing players to dress up player characters in different fashions isn’t a new thing at all. Today, though, it’s almost always behind a paywall. It’s no different in this game, as player skins are found in the Fortnite item shop.
However, that doesn’t stop players from clamoring for more of these clothing options (which often do little for gameplay – but hey, it looks cool, right?). So, here are a few of the most wanted skins in Fortnite.
Jedi with Lightsaber
Star Wars, the classic movie that featured lightsabers and the Force, has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity thanks to the sequel trilogy. Star Wars bridges generations separated by time, and now, players want cool lightsabers and Jedi robes (or Sith robes) to be available as skins.
Who wouldn’t want to run around stabbing people with a sword made of light?
Aside from being topical (with Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon), skins of popular superheroes or villains would be a popular choice. Think of Black Panther’s sweet vibranium suit, or Iron Man’s iconic armor. Building forts and shooting people has never been cooler.
With both the DC and the Marvel universes to pull from, there’s a vast selection of heroes and villains to use for skins. However, it seems that there are some characters from DC’s or Marvel’s canon that players want more than others. Harley Quinn and Joker, as well as Deadpool, are the most desired skins. Who knows, maybe all of them could be in the works. (If not exactly the same, at least references to them.)
Okay, who wouldn’t want to go around in a skin inspired by an unstoppable robot? A Terminator skin would just be icing on the cake for an unstoppable player (at least until they’re stopped), but the idea is no less badass.
Some Bad News, Though
All of the above is highly unlikely, as Epic Games has to buy the rights to use these characters’ likenesses as skins. There could, however, be references without outright copying the characters they’re representing. From a cursory glance at all the available skins, there were a few that looked similar to Overwatch characters. Since there hasn’t been any outrage at those, maybe something similar can be done for these characters.
In the end, it is still Epic Games’ decision to fulfill the players’ wishes or not. Regardless of whether these desires become reality, we hope you’ll still enjoy Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode.
Happy fort-building and dominating!
Summary: Some of the most wanted skins players desperately want in Fortnite Battle Royale. It’s not looking good though, but who knows?
