There is a website that allows players to rate the in-game skins of the popular video game Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Called ‘FN Rate,’ the website includes every single skin that was released over the games first four seasons.

A major reason why Fortnite has become so successful and popular is due to developer Epic Games consistently improving, adjusting, and adding things to keep the gaming experience fresh and fun.

Cosmetic items, especially the character skins, are a huge part of Fortnite and are available for players to purchase and/or earn by upgrading their Battle Pass.

Season 4 has even added a further layer of innovation to the skins by giving players the chance to earn armor upgrades for the new Carbide and Omega skins.

The FN Rate website ranks each of the skins based on how the average number of stars that players rate it out of five.

Currently, the top rated skins on this rating website go as follows:

  1. Black Knight (4.38/5) – Season 2 Battle Pass Tier 70
  2. Omega (4.07/5) – Season 4 Battle Pass Tier 100
  3. Raven (3.96/5) – Item Shop 2,000 V-Bucks
  4. Red Knight (3.9/5) – Item Shop 2,000 V-Bucks
  5. Skull Trooper (3.57/5) – Item Shop 1,200 V-Bucks

The newly released Venturion trooper is currently ranked as the fifth highest rated skin, but it has too few votes to include in the top 5. 

It should not be considered a coincidence that the two highest rated skins are the final tier skins of their respective Season Battle Passes. 

As for the rest of the top 5, the Red Knight and Skull Trooper are considered to be two of the rarest skins in the game and have only appeared in the Item Shop a few times. 

Fortnite fans and players can all visit the FN Tracker to rank any and all of the available skins here


Fortnite dev hints G.I Joe Snake Eyes collaboration could be in the works

Fortnite developer Donald Mustard hid some clues towards future content in the background of his zoom call today and a conveniently-placed G.I Joe figurine has convinced some players a collaboration could be on the cards.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration and innovation. It’s a game that knows no bounds and has collided with other characters and universes including Batman, John Wick, Marvel, and Star Wars.

Donald Mustard, the Creative Director at Epic Games, has been busy dropping hints towards future content in recent weeks. In an interview on Marvel’s ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast, he let it slip that Fortnite and Marvel would be crossing paths time and time again.

However, it seems like that isn’t all he’s got planned. Earlier today, he took part in a zoom interview with video-game journalist Geoff Keighley and dropped some hints towards future content in a creative way.

Donald Mustard used a webcam during the Zoom call. Naturally, that means viewers could see the room he was in. However, instead of covering things up left, right, and center, he embraced it and decided to play a game — the madman scattered clues hinting towards future content around the room.

“That was SO fun and SO inspiring!” he said. “Super cool to hang out with a bunch of awesome people who all LOVE the art of games! Trying to count how many clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space…” he added.

Fortnite players were quick to pounce and look for clues. There were lots of bits and pieces in the shot, including a couch, a desk, an exercise bike, and paintings on the wall.

However, one item stood head and shoulders above the rest. It’s gained traction on social media and convinced many Fortnite might cross paths with another popular American hero, G.I Joe.

There’s a lot of stuff hidden in the background, including a poster to Star Trek: Into Darkness. However, only one thing sticks out like a sore thumb; a boxed figure of ‘Snake Eyes’ from revived franchise G.I Joe.

Snake Eyes is an important member of the G.I Joe Team. He’s also one of the most popular characters in the story and has been involved in the story behind every G.I Joe movie and series.

Interestingly, a spin-off film dedicated entirely to him called ‘Snake Eyes’ is reportedly on the cards for production in 2021. If anything, it makes a potential Fortnite and G.I Joe collaboration all-the-more believable.

However, not everyone is convinced. Some players hope and believe Fortnite will cross paths with Star Trek instead.

It’s also possible that both of them will come into play at separate points in time. After all, Donald Mustard himself multiple clues were hidden in the background.

Either way, the hype is real, and players can’t wait to see what’s happening next in Fortnite. And, while we wait, there’s still plenty of Marvel content to enjoy too.
