It’s no secret that many players are after the rarest Fortnite skins. Some of the skins haven’t returned for more than five years and are owned by only a few thousand players. Due to this, they are extremely rare, and a lot of players would pay big money to get them.
Unfortunately, many of these skins are locked behind the Battle Pass. This means that they are only available for a certain period, which is usually less than three months. Once this period ends, the skins are no longer obtainable and they eventually become very rare.
However, two rarest Fortnite skins haven’t come out in the Battle Pass, which is why Epic Games may bring them back.
Renegade Raider is one of the rarest Fortnite skins that could return
The first season of Fortnite Battle Royale began on October 26, 2017, and lasted until December 13. Being only 49 days long, it’s the shortest season in the videogame history. It is also the only Fortnite season to not have the Battle Pass, as this progression system was introduced in Season 2.
Instead, Epic Games released the so-called Season Shop to Fortnite. The shop only had four cosmetic items which needed to be unlocked with V-Bucks. Renegade Raider, one of the rarest Fortnite skins, is the most popular item from the shop, but it also had Aerial Assault Trooper, a Rare outfit.
To unlock Renegade Raider, you had to reach level 20 and spend 1,200 V-Bucks. At the time, Fortnite wasn’t as popular as it is today, which is why many players refused to purchase cosmetic items.
Fortunately, players may get a chance to obtain these rare Fortnite cosmetics very soon. Epic may bring them back next season since it will be focused on the OG Fortnite. While the company clarified that Battle Pass items will never return to the game, it’s important to note that these items were not part of the Battle Pass.
Bringing Renegade Raider and Aerial Assault Trooper back would be quite controversial. However, considering that Epic Games hasn’t clarified the exclusivity of these items, it won’t be surprising if they return to Fortnite within the next few weeks.
