FORTNITE’S Skull Trooper costume is one skin most Battle Royale players have long wanted to get their hands on.
One of the game’s most exclusive skins hasn’t been available since November but after the rare Red Knight skin made a surprise reappearance, will Epic Games bring back the Skull Trooper too?

Fortnite Halloween skins – is the Skull Trooper coming back and can you buy real costumes?
As of yet, there has been no official confirmation the Skull Trooper skin is coming back to Fortnite despite overwhelming support for Epic Games to do so.
The Skull Trooper was one of the first ever skins unveiled before the game’s surge in popularity and was last seen during Halloween 2017 when the Epic outfit cost 1,500 V-Bucks.
As the outfit is themed it is yet to be seen whether the skin will be reintroduced for Halloween 2018 or if a new version will be released as a nod to those original players.
Despite this, fanatic fans will be able to purchase the real-life Skull Trooper costume after Retailers Spirit Halloween and Spencer’s completed an officially licenced deal with Epic Games.
Other skins available to purchase include the Black Knight, Crackshot, Dark Voyager, and Cuddle Team Leader alongside party animal pickaxes and a light-up boogie bomb.
