Recruit (Jonesy, Season X) - Outfit- Fortnite

In Fortnite: Battle Royale, almost all cosmetics are based off a certain model. Models that are used for Outfits are called “Character Models,” which is what this article mainly focuses about.

Character Models

There are quite a lot of character models, but very little compared to the amount of skins there are, which means many outfits would have the same models. Many of the models are typically the default characters, when first beginning to play Fortnite, some notable models include Jonesy, Ramirez, Banshee, Wildcat and Headhunter and the five are known to be the Original "OG default outfits". Some outfits feature a unique model to fit the character better, for example Peely, Harley Quinn, Kitbash, Doggo and Kane all have a unique Character model and figure to model the idea of the outfit.

All Character Models (with the exception of Fishstick, Cuddle Team Leader, Wildcard, and Peely) are characters from Fortnite: Save the World.

Character Model History

Over the course and existence of Fortnite, over time, the game has introduced different character models which is beginning to show the diversity in character outfits available to game players. Below shows how the outfits have changed over the existence of Fortnite.

Seasons 1

Season 1’s skins were more on the serious end of the spectrum: they were mostly military based and resembled what you would typically expect in a Battle Royale game. They were modeled after the Soldiers from Save The World. The most unique skins were Skull Trooper and Ghoul Trooper.

Season 2

Season 2 marks the time where the skins began getting less military-themed, with unique skins such as Crackshot and Funk Ops. However, they were still using old models.

Seasons 3-6

Seasons 3, 4, 5, and 6 carried on the less military themed skins idea. More unique skins were introduced, usually matching specific theme, such as The Reaper, a serious-looking hitman, and Sun Strider, a summer-themed lifeguard. Note that Epic had kept old models, with only few new ones being introduced (Mike, Nomad, and Wild Card).

Seasons 7-9

During Seasons 7 to 9, Epic Games introduced non-modeled skins, such as Trog and Slushy Soldier from Season 7. At this point forward, most Battle Pass skins had no longer used models, and so had some Item Shop skins as well. The only two Battle Pass outfits that used models were Hybrid and Bunker Jonesy. Several unique skins were introduced during this time, such as Heartbreaker and Marshmello.

Season X

During Season X to present, Epic Games has used different characters with diverse dimensions, many of the outfits now are beginning to use Save the World constructors and outfits that are bulky and large. This, for example, is seen in The Scientist, Big Chuggus, Polar Patroller, Rippley, Sludge, etc. The first notable model that is used (Kyle) is in the 3rd Bulky Character ever released, Big Chuggus.

Chapter 2: Season 3

Around this time, Fortnite began to run out of ideas for original skins, considering the fact that they had basically completed a bunch of popular themes, from pirates to dinosaurs. They began to revamp more previous outfits, similar to what some of the Limited Time Offers we’re doing. Some examples include Scuba Jonesy, a Scuba-Driver version of the Jonesy skin, Blaze, a fiery lava-consumed version of the Renegade Raider Skin, Darkheart, a Kevin-inspired version of the Stoneheart skin, and Eternal Knight, a female Ultima Knight.

Types of Character Models

Most of the character models, as said above, are the recruit skins. Most recruit skins can be used when a player isn’t using any skins; they’re sometimes known as “defaults.” Epic Games, however making the way, have created new models and have used them in various different Outfits. Some of these models include Adam and Fishstick. Those models often start out as Skins but eventually make there way to becoming other skins (e.i.g. the Fishstick outfit has a unique model which has been used for Frozen Fishstick and Triggerfish.) Similarly, Epic will sometimes take models from Save the World and implement them into Battle Royale (e.i.g. Ken is not a recruit and is actually from Save The World.)

Unique Character Model List

Although most have a skin model, there are some outfits that have not a identified skin model and have made similar occurrences before. The names are not official and are not recruit names, so they are based off of the skin(s) they first originate to.

Other Models

Believe it or not, Outfits aren’t the only cosmetics that have models. Back Blings, for example, can be divided into different models such as:

Gliders have models to, most gliders are either based off of:

Note: Not all gliders follow one of those models above. There are still many gliders that are unique.

There are much more cosmetics that follow models. Harvesting Tools and even Sprays have models.
