Fortnite players have been taken by surprise by the unexpected return of one of the rarest Item Shop skins. The community has been left astonished by the reappearance of the highly sought-after outfit, and their reactions have been overwhelmingly positive.
As one of the most popular battle royale games, Fortnite is known for its dynamic gameplay and frequent updates, as well as its extensive range of cosmetic items. Item Shop skins are particularly coveted by players, as they offer a unique way to personalise their in-game avatars. Although the item shop usually has a wide range of skins, some have become rare due to their representation of a player’s grind and OG status in the game.

Despite this, Season OG has recently brought back a plethora of cosmetic items from past Fortnite seasons, including weapons, equipment and vehicles. The reappearance of the rarest Item Shop skin has therefore come as a shock to players, who are now expressing their delight at its return.

Fortnite players were taken aback by the sudden reappearance of the rare Black Widow outfit in the Fortnite Item Shop. This outfit had not been seen in the game for 1,668 days, since it was last available in 2019 as part of the Avengers: Infinity War collaboration.
Along with the Black Widow outfit, the Widow’s Pirouette emote has also made a comeback for players to purchase from the Item Shop. The unexpected return of the skin has caused quite a stir online, with some players expressing excitement and others feeling frustrated.
Community Reactions and Changed Rankings
One player commented that they were prepared for the backlash, saying, “Oh my gosh people are going to be so mad about this and I am ready for it”. Another player speculated that the timing of the return was strategic, stating, “That’s so smart right before they drop Eminem. Now everyone is gonna have to buy more V-Bucks.”
Despite some players feeling disappointed that their rarest Marvel skin was no longer exclusive, others were happy for more players to have access to it. One player said, “Well, my rarest Marvel skin is no longer Black Widow. I’m happy people will get to use it though.”
With the return of the Black Widow outfit, the list of rarest Fortnite skins in 2023 has significantly changed. Players can check out the modified list to see where their skins now rank.
