Fortnite Season 5 has officially arrived! And with it comes some amazing new skins.
Season 5 off with an epic live event which saw the Marvel heroes defeat Galactus. Now it's time we hop into the new content, and with some great new skins, players will look great doing it.
Here's everything you need to know about Fortnite skins in Season 5
Latest News - Leaks Point to Kratos Skin in Season 5
Fortnite's next big skin looks to be Kratos from God of War if leaks are correct.
The Kratos skin is due for Fortnite Season 5, which means we could well see the god-slayed in-game in just a few days!
Battle Pass Skins
With every new season comes an all new Battle Pass, giving players a whole range of new cosmetics to unlock.
Here are the Battle Pass skins:
The Mandalorian is the Season 5 level 1 skin, so players will unlock him immediately when they purchase the Battle Pass.
It was believed that he would be the secret skin of the season, but this has been confirmed as false due to his addition in the Battle Pass.
All skins come with a variety of unlockable styles too.
At level 15 players will unlock Reese.
A hunter/fighter looking skin who looks awesome.
The meme skin of Season 5, Mancake is a man with pancakes for a head.
Mancake is unlockable at level 29.
He looks like a wildwest cowboy, except with a head made pancakes.
This is Fortnite ladies and gentlemen, would we expect anything less?
At level 41 players will unlock Mave.
A warrior who definitely has a Amazon warrior look about her.
She definitely looks like a character you don't want to mess with.
At level 60 players will unlock Kondor.
A mysterious character, completely covered by his clothing and helmet.
At level 73 players will unlock Lexa.
This skin is very unique because it looks like an anime character.
Lexa looks like the sort of character model that you would expect in a game like Genshin Impact.
She is definitely unique, and could that open the door for anime collabs in the future?
Finally we have Menace, unlockable at level 83.
Menace is a Roman gladiator who look like he belongs fighting at the colesseum.
In fact, that's exactly where you can find him as a NPC in the game.
The Secret Skin
Every season also sees a secret skin alongside the regular Battle Pass skins.
For the last few seasons we have known about the secret skin beforehand, making it not so secret.
However, this season there has been no mention of the secret skin.
Initially it was believed The Mandalorian would be the Season 5 secret skin, but he is a level 1 skin so that rules him out. So will it be Kratos?
In the Season 5 trailer we saw Agent Jonesy go into the Zero Point to take him to the Fortnite map, could he be the Season 5 secret skin?
Each month players will receive,
- Battle Pass Included for the full Season - As a member of the Fortnite Crew, you’ll always have access to the current season’s Battle Pass!
- 1,000 V-Bucks Each Month - Fortnite Crew members will receive 1,000 V-Bucks every month. Spend it on your favorite Item Shop content!

The first Crew Pack skin is called Galaxia and will also include the Cosmic Llamacorn Pickaxe and Fractured World Back Bling.
There were only a couple of leaked skins in the 15.00 update.
First is the Gingerbread Renegade Raider.
Initially created as a fan concept by Fercho, the skin has been brought to life by Epic Games and will be available in the Item Shop later this month.
Finally is a Christmas themed Fishsticks skin.
Fishsticks is a skin that has seen many iterations and is one that will likely continue to get really fun styles and outfits in the game.
Grefg Icon Series Skin
Back when Ninja was made the first influencer to be given their own skin, it was also revealed that Loserfruit and Grefg would be getting their own skins too.
Loserfruit's did come out a few months ago but Grefg's was never seen.
Recently Lachlan became the next creator to get his own skin, ahead of the already announced Grefg outfit.
During a recent blog post Epic Games said the skin is still planned and will be released soon.
Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg. We look forward to sharing more on TheGrefg shortly before he drops in!
With only a few weeks left of Season 4, and the fact the Lachlan skin has just been released, it is likely we will have to wait until Season 5 to see the Grefg Icon Series outfiy.
Seasonal skins have always been a massive part of Fortnite's item shop since the release of the game.
With the upcoming season aligning with the holiday season, we can expect a flurry of Christmas themed skins!
