Skull Trooper has returned to Fortnite: Battle Royale, and the Halloween skeleton-themed costume comes with something extra special this time around.
It’s been an entire year since Skull Trooper was last up for purchase in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and in that time some things have changed.
Since it was released last year, Skull Trooper has been one of Fortnite’s most iconic skins.
Skull Trooper – like Drift and Tomatohead before it – is an outfit unlocked from the in-game store for 1,500 V-Bucks. Once it has been purchased, every style will be available to be used. This includes a glow-in-the-dark look, and for those who owned the original Skull Trooper previously, an exclusive purple style.
Skull Trooper comes with its own set of challenges this time around, similar to the upgradeable Tomatohead and Clown Skins.
The challenges are actually quite difficult:
Patch v6.02 is available now with a return from beyond the grave!

- Complete 7 Daily Challenges (7)
- Play matches (50)
- Play matches with at least one elimination (14)
- Search 10 chests in a single match (10)
- Deal damage to opponents in a single match (1,000)
Once all of the above has been completed, the Ghost Portal Back Bling will unlock.
As with other outfit-based challenges, you don’t need to worry about finishing them by the end of the season – take your time and as soon as you hit the requirements, the second style is yours.
