In terms of understatements, saying Fortnite has a fair few skins is about on par with noting that there are a handful of stars in the skies. It’s a crowded market these days, yet some lines of skins still stand out, and none more so than the Icons Series.
Designed to give in-game life to real people who’ve involved themselves heavily in the Fortnite world, the Icons Series features skins based on YouTubers, Streamers, and musicians. It’s one of the most select groups in Fortnite with, at the time of writing, just 19 skins. To give you a look at the full set, we’ve collected images and information on all the Fortnite Icons Series skins you might encounter (or use) on the battle royale island.
All Fortnite Icons Series skins
At the time of writing, 19 Fortnite Icons Series skins been revealed. They're split into three categories covering streamers/content creators, musicians, and athletes. Here’s the short list of all of them, with a more in-depth look below if you scroll down:
- Streamers/content creators
- Ali A
- Marshmello / Marsha / Marshinobi
- Major Lazer
- Travis Scott / Astro Jack
- Ariana Grande
- Bruno Mars
- Anderson .Paak
- J Balvin
- Lebron James
- Harry Kane
- Marco Reus
- Neymar Jr
- Naomi Osaka
Ninja (Streamer/content creator)
The first Icon skin based on a content creator was announced back in January 2020. Given his face is almost synonymous with the game itself, Ninja was the no-brainer choice for in-game representation. His blue-haired skin was made available over two periods in January and May. It’s unlikely to ever return, making it quite the exclusive pick up if you own it.
Loserfruit (Streamer/content creator)
Following on from Ninja, Australian streamer Loserfruit also gained a Fortnite skin in June 2020. The design was based on an outfit she wore to the Fortnite Australian Open, and in a nice touch, also includes watermelon and citrus fruit pickaxes.
Lachlan (Streamer/content creator)
Joining Loserfruit to represent the ANZ region of creators, Aussie Lachlan is the next Icons Series skin announced by Epic Games. Though it’s yet to be officially unveiled, the new design will arrive alongside the Lachlan’s Pickaxe Frenzy tournament, giving everyone a chance to earn it for free.
Bugha (Streamer - esports player)
Bugha is an American esports player who shot to stardom after winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup as part of Sentinels. His in-game look matches that of his kit during the event, albeit with reference to his organization at the time removed.
TheGrefg (Streamer/content creator)
After smashing the Twitch concurrent viewers record (that he himself set), Spanish streamer TheGrefg unveiled his Icon Series skin to the world as a fitting tribute to the undisputed champ. Outfitted like an MMA fighter with telekinetic powers, TheGrefg's skin is now in the Epic store for your V-bucks to liberate.
Chica (Streamer/content creator)
Chica is a Puerto Rican streamer who's been making waves within Twitch and YouTube's Fortnite community. Chica's Icon series skin features a flashy coat with rainbow details and comes alongside a new Creative map to try out. There's also the endlessly entertaining Pollo Dance Emote.
LazarBeam (Streamer/content creator)
Aussie YouTuber Lazarbeam joined the Fortnite Icon Series skin lineup with a construction worker look to comemorate his job prior to full-time content creation. If you pick him up, make sure you sing along while downing a Chug Jug. LazarBeam was the third Australian to nab a place in the Icon Series.
Ali-A (Streamer/content creator)
UK content creator Ali-A is one of the biggest Fortnite and gamingYouTube channels out there, with more than 17.6 million subscribers. His Icons series skin features the bold blues of his logo wrapped on an armored metallic suit. It even comes with a cap built in! Alternate variations include a relaxed Ali-A look in a T-shirt and jeans. The skin arrived with a selection of blue gear and a rather silly dino-riding emote that blasts out the classic Ali-A intro music.
To celebrate his in-game concert in early 2019, American DJ Marshmello was given an in-game skin set. During the 2019 Fortnite World Cup, he even had the chance to show the skin off when teaming up with Ninja. While originally added under the Epic rarity, the skin was swapped to the Icons Series after its unveiling. Marshmello has worked with Fortnite extensively, even releasing official music videos created in the game’s engine. Marshmello's Fortnite renditions also include the Marsha and Marshinobi variants.
Major Lazer (Musician)
Okay, so while we did say that Fortnite’s Icons Series is intended to bring real people to life in-game, that doesn’t necessarily mean the skin will look like them. To represent Jamaican-American electronic dance trio Major Lazer, Fortnite added a skin based on the animated character which represents the group. First added as part of the Lazerism Set in August 2019, it was later added to the Icons series.
Travis Scott & Astro Jack (Musician)
Much like Marshmello, American rapper Travis Scott was given an in-game skin to tie in with an in-game musical performance. Stepping up the scale of season-ending events, April’s Astronomical performance saw Scott take players on a visual journey across the Fortnite map as he shifted through several different popular tracks.
The Astro Jack skin was a second Scott design added for the Astronomical event. The painted astronaut face is based on the astronaut figure used to promote Travis Scott’s Astroworld album. The skin arrived alongside the Travis skin in April 2020.
Ariana Grande (Musician)
As part of her summer concert series Rift Tour, Ariana Grande gets a fresh new set of looks for appearing in Epic's multiverse. The standout is her on-stage outfit, a flash crystal dress offering peeks into other realities through its shards, though that is a little cumbersome to run around in. So her Icon Series skin will be a more modest sequin party number with a Piggy Smallz Back Bling, a yellow pig wearing groovy heart rainbow shades. That's called style. There are also variants for spacefarer Ariana and the sinister Starfire
Bruno Mars (Musician)
American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars shot to fame with tracks like Grenade and Uptown Funk, the latter of which remains a stellar choice in every Just Dance game. Bruno Mars joined Fortnite alongside Anderson .Paak in the Silk Sonic bundle, bringing his sound sceptor as a harvesting tool.
Anderson .Paak (Athlete)
The other half of the Silk Sonic duo, Anderson .Paak sports a vibrant yellow bucket hat or a far more fetching flatcap depending on which one of his skins you don.
J Balvin (Musician)
The Prince of Reggaeton arrives in Fortnite with distinct blue hair and a rainbow stripe. His look is based on the Colores album and includes the Skeleton Balvin and Energia Balvin variants.
LeBron James (Athlete)
The king of the court, LeBron James, made his way into the Fortnite universe via a Space Jam 2 tie-in, but his Tune Squad uniform isn't his only fire look. Fittingly decked out with a crown and lion's head pauldrons, King James (as he goes by on Instagram) is afforded every right of his reign in a fetching black suit. Alternatively, you can be invited to LeBron's longstanding Taco Tuesday in a nice cyan t-shirt combo. That's hot. Lebron James also has a Tune Squad version to celebrate the dreadful movie Space Jam: A New Legacy. It's on your head if you grab that one.
Harry Kane (Athlete)
English football star Harry Kane is one of several soccer players to have dribbled into Fortnite in recent years as part of a UEFA Euro 2020 collab. He arrived alongside Reus (see below) in Chapter 2: Season 7.
Marco Reus (Athlete)
Appearing alongside Kane, Marco Reus is a German football star. He came with the Three Wise Monkeys emote and the Survival Kit.
Neymar Jr (Athlete)
Brazilian soccer star Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior arrived not just with a regular look, but also a primar jaguar style outfit. His exhibition look features a top in the colors of the Brazilian flag. Unlocking him required completing unique Neymar Jr quests back in the Chapter 2: Season 6 Battle Pass.
Naomi Osaka (Athlete)
Breaking the soccer sequence comes Naomi Osaka, Japanese tennis superstar and four-time Grand Slam champion. She arrives with the Court Queen look and also a Dark Priestess Naomi skin.
Those are all the Icons Series skins in Fortnite so far, but we’ve no doubt Epic will add more in time as they partner with content creators and other famous faces across the world. We’ll do our best to update this list as and when they do.
