Last year, we completed a list of the top-ten sweatiest skins in the game. Many of those skins have retained their “sweaty” status, but we’ve seen a lot of Item Shop updates since then.
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’re opening this list to include additional sweaty Fortnite cosmetics.
As we said, a lot of the skins from last year are still drenched in sweat, so we’re not including them here. If we missed an obvious sweat skin like Crystal, Sparkplug, and Aura, you can find them on our old list. This one is designed to be an addition to that list rather than a replacement.
We listed the “OG” Season 1 and 2 skins in our last article, but didn’t mention the back bling, emotes, glider, and even banner icon that go along with them.
OG sweats will almost always wear a Season 2 skin, a Black Knight back bling, or a Banner Back Bling displaying the OG Battle Bus icon – something that only Season 1 players have.
Banner Shield/Cape Back Bling
Speaking of the banner shield and cape, this is another favorite of the sweaty Fortnite community.
We aren’t seeing as many Banner Bregade skins as we were last year, but the two back bling options are still very common.
It’s easy to understand why. These are the only cosmetics that make your Banner mean something, and the customization options make them a good value.
Thanks to Benjyfishy, the Siren skin has become one of the sweatiest skins in the game. The EU pro began to main the skin as soon as it came out, and his legions of fans followed.
Epic Games even offered the Siren skin and Star Wand pickaxe (discussed below) as a Benjyfishy bundle. It’s safe to say that Siren has become one of the sweatiest skins in Fortnite over the past year.
