Skins have always been an integral part of Fortnite, and while the first iteration of them was pretty basic, as time went on, the skin's quality and variety throughout the game only grew more and more. But how many skins are there currently in Fortnite and how did they improve over time?
Well, we have the answer to all these questions and more below, as we look at the total amount of skins that have been present throughout the game and the ones currently available.
How Many Skins Are There In Fortnite?
At the time of writing (July 2022), there are currently 1,371 skins that have been added to Fortnite. The number of skins in the game has increased quite a bit, as there were only 1,290 in March 2022, and if things keep going this way, there could easily be around 2,000 skins in just over two years.
Since the first iteration of skins back in 2017, the Fortnite Shop has had tons of skins both for sale and as a part of the many Seasonal Battle Passes that have come and gone. Many of these skins are featured as a part of collaborations, from Thanos being featured as a collectible skin when collecting the Mythic Infinity Gauntlet to the first licensed skin which was an NFL jersey that players could purchase and own in perpetuity.

Some skins like the black knight and aerial assault trooper skins were released so long ago that if you've got them now, you're considered a great Fortnite player and an OG at the game. This has led to skins becoming status symbols in the game and benefitted both the community in terms of creating competition and healthy rivalry and cosplay ventures for players and naturally for Epic Games as the store has seen massive sales for skins throughout the games lifetime.
If you were to buy all of the skins in Fortnite since its release, considering there are Uncommon, Rare, and Legendary skins, the total would accumulate to roughly $7,910.99. And though this might be a large amount, if you consider all these skins being available for over five years, it's not a massive amount to spend if you bought one every month.
Last but not least, with all the skins that have been released over the years, if you bought one three years ago, its value would be exponentially higher now if you were to sell it to another player. Meaning as time goes on, investing in Fortnite skins would not only be a fun venture to dress up in your favorite outfits, but also a financially lucrative investment for the future of Fortnite.
