fortnite intel sweatiest skins 2022

Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. If you see a player wearing any of these, it might be best to avoid them at all costs.

It’s time for another installment of Fortnite Intel’s annual top 10 sweatiest cosmetics. Last year, we ranked the customizable superhero skin as the sweatiest skin, but does it still hold up?

As most players know, a Fortnite sweat isn’t only distinguishable by their skin. Their pickaxe and back bling also tell a story, which is why we opened this list to include additional sweaty Fortnite cosmetics.

As we said, a lot of the skins from last year are still drenched in sweat, and you’ll see a lot of them on this list. Here are the top 10 sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite.

Renegade Raider

This might be a shock to see at number 10 on our list, but Renegade Raider doesn’t carry the weight it use to. If you see one in-game, you’re in for a pretty hard fight. However, seeing one is few and far between.

Owning Renegade Raider is a badge of honor and a symbol that you’ve been in the game for a long while. But you’re probably more likely to get struck by lightning than to see a Renegade Raider in Fortnite.

Recon Expert

In our first article, we listed the “OG Skins” as some of the sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. Let’s be real. A lot of the sweatiest players today weren’t playing when Renegade Raider and Black Knight were available. However, the “recent” release of a certain OG Skin has a lot of sweaty players pretending they were playing in 2017.

The Recon Expert was a rare skin, but new sweats were given the opportunity to purchase it after its re-release. Unlike Ghoul Trooper or Skull Trooper, OG owners weren’t given an exclusive style. Now, it’s impossible to discern an OG sweat from a wannabe.

NBA Skins

Another sports skin has been added since last year’s list, and it’s the set of customizable basketball players. During last year’s NBA crossover, players could purchase eight different basketball skins which are all extremely customizable.

Not only can players make their own jerseys, but they can also rep their favorite sports team. And of course, female skins are preferred due to their smaller visual profile.

Studded Axe

The Studded Axe is one of the sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite due to its competitive advantage. This bad boy barely makes a sound when it’s harvesting mats, and its sleek design makes it harder to see.

It’s also in the Item Shop quite frequently, so wannabe pro-players have the opportunity to purchase it every month or so. There are other axes that are just as quiet but harder to obtain. That’s why you’ll run into a lot of sweaty players running the Studded Axe

Sparkplug

Sparkplug, like a lot of skins on this list, is the skin of a Creative Warrior. It’s not as common as some of the others on the list, but it’s sweaty, nonetheless.

In my experience, a Sparkplug skin is often the real deal. You have a lot of pretenders wearing Soccer skins and Star Wands, but Sparkplug skins are killers; more often than not.

Aura

Aura was one of those skins that you knew would be ‘sweaty,’ and it didn’t disappoint. For some reason, Aura became the primary skin of several pro-Fortnite players and sweats across the world.

Why is this skin so sweaty? It’s hard to tell. All we know is that an Aura either means business or thinks that they’re better than they are.

Soccer Skins

Soccer skins have been and likely always will be near the top of this list. These are iconic skins for sweaty players. Mainly younger players who had to coax their parents into buying them V-Bucks so they could buy their own customizable skin.

They aren’t nearly as popular now as many other skins on this list. That being said, you know you’re in for a fight if you see one. A sweat who continues to wear their soccer skin probably spends more time in creative courses than the actual game, and they are ready to taste blood

Star Wand

The Star Wand is by far the sweatiest pickaxe in Fortnite. Why? We have no idea. A handful of pros use it. It makes minimal noise when swung. But it isn’t all that rare. Seeing it in-game is infuriating because you know they’re going to kick your butt.

However, its sweatiness is undeniable. It’s a well-known meme in the Fortnite community that the Star Wand is used exclusively by sweats. Maybe players are hoping that the wand will be bugged again to deal 75 damage per swing. That likely won’t happen, but that won’t stop sweaty players from hoping

Superhero Skins

Our reigning champions have been dethroned. Mainly because the Superhero, or officially named Boundless, skin sets have been banned from competitive play entirely.

You’ll still get sweated on by fully white or fully black skins in casual lobbies, but comp players have been rid of the superhero menaces.

Scarlet Commander

Coming in at number one is actually our second sweatiest skin from last year. Plenty of competitive players still use this skin thanks to its dark color palette. Since a certain skin we just talked about has been banned from comp, players are looking for a new skin that will give them an advantage.

The Scarlet Commander is almost completely black with a few dark red accents and minimally exposed flesh. In dark areas and at night, Scarlet Commander is near invisible. Go ahead and open Twitch right now or during a tournament. I guarantee one of the top Fortnite streamers is currently using this skin.

So, there you have it: the ten sweatiest cosmetics in Fortnite. It will be interesting to see which skins, pickaxes, back bling, and even gliders take over the throne over the course of the next year.

We’re sure that we missed a few cosmetics, as we only limited our list to ten. Let us know what we skipped on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.

Fortnite x Kaws collaboration confirmed to bring a new Peely skin

American artist Kaws has announced another collaboration with Fortnite. This time around, loopers can expect a Peely reskin in his style.

Published

Fortnite x Kaws

Kaws and Fortnite collaborated during the Chapter 2 Season 8 Fortnitemares event that brought four Skeleton outfits to the Item Shop. The artist has teased his return in Chapter r3 Season 3 and has most likely worked on a Peely reskin.

The first collaboration between Kaws and Fortnite was a massive hit. Fortnitemares was the perfect occasion for the artist to introduce his characters to the Battle Royale game.

Leakers were anticipating that a new crossover with a renowned artist will be announced tomorrow, but Kaws himself has confirmed it beforehand.

Kaws confirms his return to Fortnite through an Instagram post

Kaws recently posted an image with a card that says, “Dear Fortnite, see you soon”. What’s more interesting is the fact that a banana is placed beside the card.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Peely is one of the, if not the most popular character in Fortnite. The walking banana was first introduced as a meme in Chapter 1 Season 8, and countless variants have arrived ever since. These include Unpeely, Agent Peely, Frozen Peely, and Peely Bone, among others.

A few minutes before Kaws confirmed the collaboration, leakers iFireMonkey and Shiina had these things to say about an upcoming Fortnite collaboration:

  • A collaboration with a prominent artist will be announced tomorrow.
  • A well-known Fortnite character will get a new style from the artist.
  • Alongside the skin, there will be a back bling, a wrap, and a glider.
  • The collaboration files will be decrypted tomorrow while the skins will arrive in the Item Shop 2-3 days later.

It is fairly easy to join the dots now. A Kaws x Fortnite collaboration is imminent and Peely is the ‘well-known’ character who will receive a skin style. Having said that, the release date of the skin is still uncertain.

Considering that Peely already has a skeleton style (Peely Bone), it will be interesting to see how Kaws has redesigned the character this time. It is worth noting that according to the lore, Peely is not a single character but a tribe.

Fortnite leaks reveal free Major Mancake skin coming in Chapter 3 Season 3

Fortnite leakers have discovered a new Mancake skin in the files called Major Mancake that players can unlock for free in Chapter 3 Season 3.

Published

Major Mancake Fortnite

Mancake, literally a man with a pancake head, is one of the most popular Fortnite characters. He has received a ‘Major’ upgrade in Chapter 3 Season 3 and you can get the skin by completing five Fall Guys’ Crown Clash challenges.

Mancake and his unreal adventures in Butter Barn are quite famous among Fortnite players. The character has been on the island since Chapter 2 Season 5 and has played a significant role in the storyline repeatedly.

Here’s a preview of the upcoming Major Mancake skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

How to get Major Mancake skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

To be fair, the Major Mancake skin isn’t a noteworthy upgrade to the original skin. There are minor differences in the the outfit’s color scheme and the head is now more pancake-like.

Here’s a comparison between the original Mancake skin and the leaked Major Mancake skin:

The decrypted Major Mancake set also has the following items:

  • Stacked! spray
  • Sweet Clementine pickaxe
  • Stacked with Love emoticon
  • Waffler backbling

Leakers have reported that the emoticon and the spray do not have a source, which hints at Major Mancake being a promotional cosmetic.

Considering that Epic Games is about to announce the Fall Guys crossover in a few hours, it is safe to assume that Major Mancake will be a free reward from the Crown Clash challenges.

There will be five Crown Clash challenges and loopers will have to play a total of 100 Fall Guys shows to avail of all five free rewards.

Why Major Mancake could be a free Fortnite x Fall Guys reward

Leakers have discovered that the upcoming Fall Guys challenge will have five stages and the Major Mancake set comprises five cosmetics. These skins, sprays, and emoticons do not have Item Shop assets, and the pickaxe appears to have a Promo source.

Having said that, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for none of the Fall Guys x Fortnite rewards to be Fall Guys themed. Mancake is an original Fortnite character and has no relation with Mediatonic’s Battle Royale game.

We’ll make sure to update this article when Epic Games officially reveals Major Mancake and the procedure to get the skin.

UPDATE: Leakers have confirmed that Major Mancake is a promotional reward for Fortnite x Fall Guys. The order in which players can get the skin for free is:

  • 10 Fall Guys Rounds: Stacked! Spray
  • 20 Fall Guys Rounds: Stacked With Love Emoticon
  • 40 Fall Guys Rounds: Sweet Clementine Pickaxe
  • 70 Fall Guys Rounds: Waffler Backbling
  • 100 Fall Guys Rounds: Major Mancake Outfit

Fortnite reveals new July Crew Pack skin

Another month, another Crew pack releases in Fortnite and this time around it comes with an additional surprise. Here’s the latest on this month’s Crew Pack.

Published

fortnite july crew pack

Fortnite Crew skins hold their exclusivity as these in-game cosmetic usually do not arrive to the item shop and are availed by those who additionally purchase the pack. However, this time around it arrives with an exclusive Save The World access that is pretty unusual for a Crew Pack to feature other than the traditional V-Bucks and a Battle Pass.

With the release of Chapter 3 Season 3, players saw the arrival of several characters and new outfits in the Battle Pass that they have been waiting for. From Darth Vader to Indiana Jones, loopers are enjoying the grind to unlock their favorite skins in the Battle Pass and also purchasing the newest Naruto Collab skins from the Item Shop.

However, apart from the traditional Item Shop cosmetics, this time around players seem to love the Save The World Skate Park Royalty pack and are not hesitating to cop the exclusive outfit. Although, some were still waiting for the Crew Pack to hit the Item Shop to make their choice between the two as the latter offers a hefty amount of V-Bucks and the season’s Battle Pass.

As loopers saw some major changes arrive in the v21.10 update last week, Epic announced its July Crew Pack cosmetics which come with the usual combo but this time around, also comes with an exclusive Save The World access to subscribers.

Phaedra arrives to the island with July Fortnite Crew Pack

Fortnite July Crew pack brings ‘A dark sea witch with unknowable power’ to the game. Phaedra hits the Item Shop on July 1st with the rest of the crew pack bonuses subscribers usually get.

The July Crew pack features a Phaedra outfit with an additional selectable style, a Ceph back bling that looks like a squid, an Inky Reflection Loading Screen, a Gothic Shadesoarer glider and a Stygian Parasol pickaxe, both of which resembles an umbrella. In addition to those subscribers will get a free Battle Pass, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive access to Save The World PVE campaign.

Moreover, players who already own the Battle Pass, will be getting 950 V-Bucks back in addition to the 1000 V-Bucks as a Crew Pack Bonus. For $11.99, this crew pack offers a lot more than its value and is bang for the buck for those who want to purchase it or subscribe to it.

However, loopers can also subscribe to the current Mecha Strike Commander Crew Pack to get both the cosmetics of June’s as well as July’s crew packs right in their lockers, with the V-Bucks and Save The World access the latter promises.
