8 Fortnite skins that bring back all the nostalgia

8 Fortnite skins that bring back all the nostalgia

Many Fortnite skins are from a long time ago, so they can make players feel nostalgic. There have been 21 seasons so far, and skins from one of the previous seasons can feel like a long time ago, hence the feeling. Truth be told, an aspect of the previous chapter can do it too.

Most of the nostalgic skins are probably older from the battle pass as they are directly connected to a season. Item Shop Fortnite skins come and go, making it harder, though not impossible, to get nostalgic for them. Here are some good examples.


Fortnite skins with element of sentimentality

8) Calamity

Calamity is one of the most famous battle pass skins of all time, which means that when Chapter 1 Season 6 came around, every user was wearing this skin. It has remained immensely popular, though not as popular, 15 seasons later.

Still, it was a great time in Fortnite, and this skin brings back those memories.


7) Measure

Midas was in the Chapter 2 Season 2 battle pass, which wasn’t that long ago.

However, it was a totally different time in Fortnite, and it came when things had drastically changed. He was also an essential character. That only helps fuel the nostalgia.


6) Sunwalker

Sun Strider is still an incredibly popular skin, but in Chapter 1 Seasons 5 (where she came from) and 6, everyone was wearing her outfit.

Every time someone sees a Sun Strider today, they are immediately reminded of one of the greatest eras of Fortnite.


5) The Visitor

The Visitor first appeared in Chapter 1 Season 4, making him one of the oldest and most essential characters in Fortnite. Seven’s revival in Chapter 3 has made him a popular character again, but only players who unlocked him back then have him.

It brings a lot of nostalgia, mainly because his role and intentions were a big topic of discussion back then.


4) Skull Soldier

Skull Trooper is one of the rare nostalgic Fortnite skins in the Item Shop. It’s especially impressive that this skin can feel nostalgic as it has been re-introduced many times and given many new styles.

The original version of the skin carries a lot of nostalgia for many loopers.


3) Elite Agent

Elite Agent was the level 87 skin from Chapter 1 Season 3. This Fortnite outfit was one of the best of that season and is still used quite a bit today.

The level 100 skin, usually the most popular of a season, was The Reaper, which was eventually “replaced” with the official John Wick skin, which helps Elite Agent.


2) Flash Specialist

Sparkle Specialist was part of the first battle pass. Chapter 1 Season 2 was the first battle pass and only had four skins, so they all have nostalgic value, but not like the Spark Specialist.

It’s really a bonus to have this skin, and it’s one of the most nostalgic items in the game.


1) Black Knight

The Black Knight skin is the main skin for nostalgia. It was the top skin available in that first battle pass and it’s the poster skin from the old days. Most players miss those days, so the Black Knight skin perfectly encapsulates that feeling.

Some loopers have begged for it to be added back somehow, but so far it remains exclusive.
