Outfits (Informally referred to as 'Skins') are a type of Cosmetic Item players may equip and use for Fortnite: Battle Royale, Fortnite: Creative, and Fortnite: Save the World. They enable the player to change the model and aesthetic of the player character, with no competitive advantage.
Outfits are cosmetic only, changing the appearance of the player's character. Although they do not grant a statistical advantage, outfits may blend in the environment, or can be used to imitate AI. Outfits are based on the Character Models, with a majority of outfits using an existing set of them, with many using a Unique model.
Players cannot change their outfit in-game without a Blue Phone Booth, which is exclusive to Creative and Party Royale. Outfits can be freely changed in the lobby, or between matches.
Outfits are obtained in many ways, with it being impossible for the player to not have an outfit equipped. Not equipping an outfit will provide the player with a Recruit Outfit. Outfits have historically been obtained via the Item Shop, Battle Pass, Special Promotions, or even granted for free during special events.
