After a lengthy winter season, Fortnite's Chapter 4 Season 2 is here to dramatically shake up the Battle Royale island with a brand-new Japan-inspired corner of the map, a whole host of dope new gameplay changes, and a new katana weapon that'll be your best friend for the next couple months. Oh, and maybe the best battle pass in the game's history, which comes with the much-anticipated Eren Jaeger skin from Attack on Titan.
That's no small praise considering how high the quality of the passes in Chapter 3 were, not to mention the excellent Season 1 pass that just ended. No, this battle pass lineup is truly next-level, offering up an unprecedented selection of cool freaks, creatures, and interesting people. There are several skins here that would be very popular if they were sold in the item shop, but as battle pass offerings--meaning everybody and their mothers are gonna own these skins--some of these are going to be ubiquitous in battle royale for years to come.
But which skin from the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 battle pass is truly the best? That's probably something we'll all never be able to agree on, because this Suicide Squad-esque lineup of weirdos caters to so many different tastes. But here's one stance that doesn't seem to be all that controversial: no matter what kind of weirdo you may be in real life, this battle pass has a skin that matches it.
Now, let's rank these skins.
There's nothing wrong with this season's Drift remix, but he's just a little bit too neat and clean for a group of skins that is otherwise pretty freakin' chaotic. That said, his lankiness does give him a little bit of a creepy vibe when he's got his mask on, so Stray could very well be the sort of skin that grows on you over time. Or maybe, like the original Drift, people will wear him so much that the sight of him is revolting.
7. Renzo the Destroyer
This very classy terminator looks incredible, but he has a major flaw: He doesn't have a working mouth or eyes. So he's a skin that looks amazing standing still and in general gameplay, but he's kinda "meh" doing emotes. For some of you that won't be that big of a deal. But for those of us who like for our skins to entertain us while we wait for matchmaking, Renzo is a little bit frustrating. But only a little bit. He's still a beautiful skin--but without a working face his comedy potential is a lot lower than I expected.
Imani is the obligatory regular person in the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 battle pass, and since this pass is so loaded with awesome weirdos she's kind of the odd one of the group. As part of this package, she kinda gets lost a little bit--but we'll be able to appreciate her more over time once we wear out our obsessions with Thunder and Empress Mizuki.
5. Eren Jaeger
While the protagonist of Attack on Titan isn't quite so inherently hilarious as Goku or Naruto are, Attack on Titan is so earnest that it's gonna be just as much fun using this skin in Party Royale as it will be in Battle Royale. The more sincere and serious the character, the better the Fortnite collab is. It's why Darth Vader will probably always be the funniest Fortnite battle pass guy, and it's why Eren Jaeger is pretty much guaranteed hilarity.
This off-brand combo of Harley Quinn and Catwoman is sure to be a hit with the 500-crowned-victories type of folks who make my solo lobbies so outrageously sweaty. But also this is a great character design, and the bonus style that comes in Easter colors is a nice touch--I always appreciate it when they throw us a holiday style or two in a battle pass.
We're not totally sure why Mizuki is the tier-100 skin on the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 battle pass--unlike with the Ageless Champion boss last season, we don't really know anything about her or what her role is in the story yet. But I do know this: This is gonna be one of the skins I pull out when I keep getting killed as soon as I drop and need to get serious. She just has that vibe.
Considering how many animal person skins Fortnite has, it's frankly shocking there aren't more lizard guys around. This is our first one in years--and he was well worth the wait. In any other battle pass Fortnite has ever had, Thunder would be the best skin, hands down, especially with all three of his styles that you can unlock. But it's a testament to the quality and audacity of this pass that there's something better, and not a knock on Thunder's design at all. He's perfect.
But Mystica is more perfect. She is, perhaps, the greatest freak Fortnite has ever known. This is a skin I can barely even comprehend, no matter how long I spend staring at it. And I've spent a lot of time staring at it. People who discover this skin after Chapter 4 Season 2 ends will weep when they realize they can never have her.
