As we approach Halloween and yet another Fortnitemares event, we take a look at the top 5 rarest Halloween Fortnite Item Shop skins based on the last appearance.

We’re a few weeks away from Halloween and Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event. Epic have release two Fortnitemare events since Battle Royale was released with the last one announced on October 24th.

During the Fortnitemares event, Epic release challenges for the event as well as rewards, some of which are cosmetic. New skins are also released during the event that are Halloween themed. Last year, the Deadfire outfit/skin was released along with the Dark Engine glider that was available for free upon completing the challenges from the event.

In October, especially leading up to the finals days before Halloween, Epic release new Halloween themed skins. We decided to take a look back at all of the Halloween themed skins and list the five rarest skins based on their last appearance in the item shop.

Ghoul Trooper

It comes as no surprise that Ghoul Trooper is the rarest Halloween skin that’s available. The skin was first available to purchase on the 26th October 2017 and hasn’t been in the shop for 674 days as of writing. A number of code names for upcoming Halloween Fortnite skins were leaked which suggests we could be getting a male version of the skin. If that’s the case, we could see the Ghoul Trooper finally make a return.
