Fornite Battle Royale | a classic skin
These are all classic skins that Epic games have brought back, but with new tweaks, like they’re all alternate dimensions or something.
We have a sexy and tattooed Rust Lord, which I didn’t expect. The infamous DJ Yonder skin has been changed, where you can now remove his helmet. Teknique is back with a completely new look. The skull is actually Dark Voyager and you can unlock a helmet style for him. The level 100 skin is Ultima Knight, which appears to be a supercharged version of Black Knight / Red Knight.
Overall, the Season X Battle Pass is a pretty solid pass and Epic has managed to bring back old stuff while still feeling new and like these skins are worth it and more than just custom styles of the old ones.
