When is the Fortnite Party Skull Ranger skin coming out in Season 7?


The Skull Ranger and Skull Trooper were once the best skins to have in Fortnite. The Skull Trooper was a Chapter 1 – Season 1 Battle Pass exclusive, and the Skull Ranger joined the game in the Item Shop during Chapter 1 – Season 6. Being similar, they quickly became some of the best skins in the game. The Skull Trooper was especially good because no one really had it. Fortnite later added them back to the Item Shop, making them a lot less rare but no less cool. Then new styles were added to them, making them even cooler.

Now, probably for the upcoming Rift Tour event, they’re releasing the Party Skull Ranger and Party Skull Trooper. According to data miner HYPEX, these skins are coming soon.


Party Skull Ranger and Party Skull Trooper in Fortnite

It should be noted that, as PLildr1 points out, it is highly unlikely that these styles will be added to the existing Skull Ranger and Skull Trooper skins. Instead, it is very likely that they will be completely new skins that will be sold separately in the Item Shop.

Currently, there’s no date set for the addition of these new Party Skull skins, but before or during the Rift Tour event is a good probability. These skins are partiers and they’re likely to be a featured part of the concert. The official names are Party Trooper and Sparkle Skull. According to FN_Assist, these will be given to players when the Fortnite Rift Tour begins.

This has not been confirmed, but it is certainly possible. The Rift Tour kicks off tomorrow, with shows at the dates and times given below. Be sure to join for the exclusive skins, if that proves to be the case.
