Fortnite Skull Trooper Skin
Skull Trooper: Skull Trooper was released during Halloween in 2017 and I believe hit the shop twice. It finally made its return during the Halloween 2018 season. This is the skin the popular streamer Myth is known for using most of the time. Skull Trooper is so old that it cost the original 1,200 V-Bucks back when it was released.
There are two new style options when it comes to Skull Trooper. First, there’s a green glow that’s available to everyone. Second, there’s a purple glow that is exclusive to players who owned the skin previously. So, if you are an OG player mad about Skull Trooper returning you will have that as a unique feature to show off your old ways.
Not only are there new styles, you can unlock the long leaked Ghost Portal Back Bling. To accomplish that, you’ll need to complete some Skull Trooper challenges. Check out our detailed post on this: Skull Trooper Challenges List Guide!

The fan-favourite Skull Trooper skin has returned to Fortnite after overwhelming support, and this time it arrives in the Item shop with a female version, accompanying Skull Sickle pickaxe and Crypt Cruiser Glider.
You can also earn the Ghostportal backbling by completing challenges. The Epic Skull Sickle is available for 1,200 V-Bucks, as well as the Epic Crypt Cruiser, the Epic Skull Trooper skin is now available for 1,500 V-Bucks, and the rare Skull Ranger for 1,200 V-Bucks
The Skull Trooper was one of the first ever skins unveiled before the game’s surge in popularity and was last seen during Halloween 2017 when the Epic outfit cost 1,500 V-Bucks.
Epic had been teasing the skin’s reapperance for a number of months now to hype up its plans for the spooky holiday, at least according to controversial streamer Ninja.
“[Epic] gave me some interesting hints,” he claims. “They showed me some cool up-and-coming things. I’m just pumped for Halloween, dude.”
On September 27, 2018, The skin has got fans excited by making a reappearance in the trailer for Season 6 (below) which hints Epic does indeed have plans to reintroduce it later this month.
Fortnite has already been given the Halloween treatment with a decorative makeover and expectations are growing that a Skull Trooper skin will return.
Skull Trooper Costume
Today’s Fortbyte in Fortnite, #03, continues the tradition of making you go deeper and deeper into this season’s battle pass in order to unlock it. It is accessible using the Skull Trooper Emoji at the western most point of the map.
Where is the Skull Trooper emoji? (weren’t they calling these ‘emoticons’?), that would be in tier 58 of the free side of the battle pass for season 9. Once you get there, you will be on track to unlock Fortbyte.
For the western most point of the map, we have already been here for a challenge that had us visiting all four direction points of the map I believe last season. If we’re being told to go west, that means we are heading to the often-troubled Snobby Shores which has been invaded/destroyed a few times in recent months.
Once you get there, you are looking for a little dirty path to the back of the row of houses that you can actually see from the air. Walking all the way to the edge and you will see both the sign marking this as the western edge of the map, and floating hologram of Fortbyte #03 you need to emote in front of.

Fans will also be able to purchase the real-life Skull Trooper costume after Retailers Spirit Halloween and Spencer’s completed an officially licenced deal with Epic Games.

Fortnite is an online video game set in a dystopian world where 98 per cent of Earth’s population suddenly disappears.
Living conditions have become unbearable and zombie-like creatures roam the Earth in this sandbox game where players are among the remaining two per cent fighting for survival.
After the apocalypse, “survivor bases” were set-up and each player is in charge of looking after these bases before trying to find a way to return Earth to normal.
Fortnite, certified for those aged 12 and over, also includes a mode called Battle Royale in which 100 online players are put in a battlefield to fight until death – when just one player remains.

While there is no exact figure on how many children play the game, data collected up to late January showed 45million people playing Fortnite across PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Many parents are concerned about the harmful effects that the long playing duration and violent content is having on their children.
A thread on forum site Reddit summed up concerns with one parent saying the game “promotes strategic thinking” but their child has started to “slam doors when he used to be pretty laid back”.
In a This Morning poll asking if parents were worried about the effect the game had on their children, 59 per cent voted no as opposed to 41 per cent who said yes.
