Darkness has risen and Fortnite Season 6 is off to a spooky start. Like a cauldron full of sweet, delicious candy, the shop is full of creepy, scary, deadly -- and even silly -- new skins just in time for Halloween.
If you’re still contemplating whether or not you want to buy a Battle Pass or simply want to quickly sift through all the choices, we've put together a list of all the current Season 6 skins so you can spend more time knocking and less time scrolling through the shop.
Remember, a Battle Pass costs 950 v-bucks ($9.99). You can also purchase the Battle Bundle, which includes the first 25 tiers of content for the season and costs 2,800 v-bucks (around $30.00).
Season 6 will be active until December 5, 2018, which will give you plenty of time to enjoy the latest content and level up tiers to acquire your favorite skins.
Skin: DJ Yonder
The infamous Llama has returned for Season 6 in the form of a DJ.
Following suit other famous artists of the electro genre such as Daft Punk and Deadmau5, this Fortnite character wears a massive metallic helmet in the shape of a llama head. With shades, a headset, and a gold tooth, this DJ is ready to fist pump their way into a victory royale.
The rest of the clothes glow in sweet LED lights, meaning it's not the stealthiest look out there. But who cares? You know you want it just to stand out in the crowd -- and the winner's circle.
This is one of the skins you will automatically acquire in Tier One when you purchase a Battle Pass.
Calamity has been the talk of Season 6 for obvious reasons. Who wouldn’t want this sleek gunslinger skin?
The best part is that this skin also has six unlockable styles. The first for this pink-haired cowgirl is an outfit of simple shorts and a cowgirl hat, which is available in Tier One, meaning you'll get this skin immediately when purchasing your Battle Pass.
However, you'll need to gather experience to unlock this skin's other styles.
The second, available at 20,000 XP, is more threatening with a bandit mask, a black pair of jeans, and a leather vest with silver studs. The third can be gained after reaching 50,000 XP. It includes gloves and fringed jeans.
The second half of styles for Calamity are more detailed but also more difficult to receive. The fourth style adds teal accents, shotgun shells along with her belt, and a poncho to complete the western look. You will need 90,000 XP for this one though.
The fifth look is where players can acquire the long dark cloak with spiked shoulders at 140,000 XP.
And finally, the sixth style adds another ammunition strap, spiked gloves, and glowing purple trims to the cloak. Smoke ominously billows off of Calamity’s clothes in this Halloween look. Be prepared to give the game some dedication, though, since it requires 200,000 XP to unlock.
This Season 6 skin is straightforward but silly enough to work.
Giddy-up is arguably the most hilarious skin Fortnite has seen yet. The character wears a giant inflatable pink Llama around his waist -- as if he were riding it straight to a victory royale. The boots are covered in grass as well to pull off the illusion -- well, except for the blatantly obvious metal shin guards ...
You can nab this skin at Tier 23, which means it is also one you will get with the Battle Pass Bundle if you are willing to spend the extra money.
Next up on the Fortnite Season 6 skins list is Fable.
Most players simply refer to this skin as Red Riding Hood, though she’s a little more rugged than other iterations of the character with scarlet war paint on her eyes and the wolf's tail tied to her belt as a trophy.
She still has her classic red hood along with braids and a skirt. Her shirt is tattered and bound with leather buckles. The rest of the look includes red and black gloves and boots.
Looks like the wolves are the ones who should be running away.
This skin is available at Tier 47 and is the first of the collection that won’t be immediately available after purchasing the Battle Pass Bundle.
This is one of the spookier -- and more Halloween-centric -- Season 6 skins.
Dusk is an Epic Fortnite skin that's part of the Nite Coven set and perfect for the Darkness Rises theme.
This vampire character has cold purple skin, glowing red eyes, white hair with purple edges, and creepy black claws. She wears a leather tunic, gauntlets, and boots.
This demonic skin is the fifth of the seven skins you can gain, and it is available at Tier 71. It's perfect for frightening your enemies and getting a quick knock.
With a name like Nightshade, you would expect this skin to be a bit scarier ... well, on second thought, it is a bit unsettling.
This smiling tomato head is an Epic skin and part of the Pizza Pit set. She wears a grey jumpsuit and hood over the green stem at the top of her helmet.
You can reach nab this Fortnite Season 6 skin to complete your Pizza collection at Tier 86. It might not be the spookiest skin in the newest set, but it's definitely one of the most unique -- and that helmet ... well, it speaks for itself.
The most challenging skin to get this season at Tier 100 is also one of the best Halloween skins available. Dire is a legendary skin that at first just looks like a jock teenager. But after unlocking his other styles, this skin transforms into a terrifying werewolf.
The second style in the set is a humanoid brown wolf with glowing yellow eyes, a red headband, and ripped jeans and jackets. This one is available at 30,000 XP.
The third is 70,000 XP and is a complete wolf transformation, snarling teeth and all. He grows a long snout and pointy ears. He still has brown fur and red headband, but his jacket and jeans are completely torn away.
Each of the following styles begin to change the werewolf’s fur and clothes colors. His fourth unlockable style is at 120,00 XP and has grey skin with light blue accents along his jacket and headband. His third is white with yellow accents. You can gain this one at 180,000 XP.
The fourth (and final) unlock is a black wolf with bright red eyes, gold arm guard, and grey clothing. It’s going to take 250,000 XP to finally reach this one though.
Get ready to start grinding challenges and buddying up with your friends to gain tiers and XP fast.
Skin: Skull Trooper
They say what's old is new again, and that statement has never been truer than now. The Skull Tropper skin, a fan favorite, has made its return.
This one costs 1,200 V-bucks (a little under $15.00) and has an additional version that glows in the dark if you owned the skin previously. Some players believe that the return of this skin could be a precedent for the return of the Ghoul Skin.
But only time will tell.
Skin: Skull Ranger
Skull Ranger is also now available in the shop.
She costs the same as her male counterpart at 1,200 V-Bucks (a little under $15) -- and she has become quite popular already.
She also has a version where her bone outline glows green. Acquiring both the Skull Ranger skin and the Skull Trooper skin will complete the skull set and give you the opportunity to be even more festive this Halloween in Fortnite.
This is one of the most recent skins in the item shop; it's a part of the Grim Medicine set and is a little more expensive than the skull set. However, it is definitely one of the coolest, eeriest Fortnite skins out there.
The plague doctor character is 1,500 V-Bucks. His mask has a crow-like beak -- reminiscent of medieval plague doctors -- and his eyes glow green. He also wears an apron and has medicine vials on his belt.
This one appears to be limited, so you'll want to grab this one before its gone from the shop.
Scourge came to the item shop alongside the Plague skin. Both are a part of the Grim Medicine set and resemble plague doctors from the 14th century.
Both are 1,500 V-Bucks($15) in the item shop.
This ominous skin includes a hooded cloak, popular crow-like plague mask, glowing green eyes, and gloves. The character is definitely one of the best to enter the shop lately, perfect for Halloween and the Darkness Rises theme.
Bullseye was one of the Season 6 skins leaked for the 6.02 patch.
It's an Uncommon skin and won't be too pricey to purchase. It includes gloves, an unfastened military helmet with goggles, and a tank with a bullseye plastered at the center of the chest.
If you purchase this skin, don't let your opponents hit that target and humiliate them with your own sharp-shooter skills.
Skin: Jack Gourdon
This skin was another to leak with the 6.02 update, and, honestly, we are so excited for it. Just look at it.
This skin is a Legendary, so it will be around $15 as well, similar to the skins in the Grim Medicine Set and the Skull Set.
This hilarious skin features a man in a black, pumpkin covered suit and a carved pumpkin head. His completely unimpressed facial expression is perfect for frustrating your opponents and is ridiculous when paired with extravagant emotes and dances like Orange Justice, Llama Bell, and Floss.
Skin: Hallow Head
The final Season 6 skin (for now), and arguably the most impressive, is a flaming pumpkin head.
Hallow Head is an intimidating character with a large hallow pumpkin head with bright teal flames igniting from his eyes and mouth. The cloak has a tattered hem and his belt and collar are adorned with rotting pumpkin leaves.
Along with Jack Gourdon, these two pumpkin heads are some of the best of the season, and a must-have for this Halloween.
If you like Halloween as much as we do, then we bet you're hyped for Fortnite Season 6 and the Darkness Rises theme. The array of available skins is terrifyingly good this time around.
Battle Passes are available now until December 5 (before Season 7), which may have a winter theme if Epic decides to follow in the footsteps of this season and last winter's Survive the Holidays event.
