FORTNITE SEASON 5 SKINS – UPDATE ONE: Fortnite season 5 is live now and the new skins are available in the Battle Pass.
Fortnite season 5 has launched on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Mobile, PCs and Macs after a few hours of Battle Royale server downtime.
And since Fortnite season 5 has gone live it’s emerged at what point in the Battle Pass Fortnite fans can get hold of the new skins.
When Fortnite players purchase the Battle Pass they will immediately get rewarded with the Drift and Huntress skins.
The tier 100 reward for Fortnite season 5 is the Ragnarok outfit.
The Ragnarok outfit is the skin that features a skull face and horns shown in previous Fortnite season 5 artwork.
Epic Games revealed a number of brand new Fortnite season 5 skins when they posted the official patch notes today.
Skins that have been showcased include a Fortnite character wearing the Kitsune mask from the first Fortnite season 5 teaser.
Other skins include a biker girl, a military outfit, Viking outfits and a terrifying skin which has a skull face and spiky horns.
The latest Fortnite skins were revealed in patch notes that Epic Games put out for today’s Fortnite update V5.0.
More Fortnite skins will be revealed later once servers come back online and update V5.0 becomes available to download.
It remains to be seen if any of the skins that Epic Games have revealed for Fortnite season 5 will be the tier 100 reward.
It was previously rumoured that the Fortnite season 5 tier 100 reward would be linked to the infamous Flying Dutchman ghost ship.
The Fortnite season 5 skin that has been revealed so far that may fit the bill is the skull faced skin.
Could that be Fortnite’s version of the Flying Dutchman captain? Or maybe it’s Fortnite version of the pirate Davy Jones?

Alternatively, the Fortnite skin featuring the Kitsune mask could be the tier 100 reward for season 5.
The cat-like mask was front and centre of the first Fortnite season 5 teaser revealed on Monday.
At the time fans were left wondering whether it showed either a Bastet, Kitsune or Kabuki mask.
If it was a Kitsune mask then fans theorised that was important as it could hint at a time travel theme for Fortnite season 5.
In Japanese folklore, Kitsunes (the Japanese word for fox) had the ability to bend time and space.
And it looks like these fan theories could be true with the ‘Worlds Collide’ theme for Fortnite season 5.
The Fortnite patch notes revealed that “Viking ships and ancient statues” will be popping up across the Battle Royale map.
Fortnite players will also be able to jump into rifts which will take them on a “wild ride”.
