If you happened to be a seasoned gamer, or simply have your ear to the ground when it comes to all of the lingo used in online gaming, then there are a few phrases that you may have come across. These include “bot”, “sweaty”, or “tryhard” when it comes to what we are talking about today. If you are unfamiliar with these terms, they simply relate to someone who is extremely good at the game, so much so that they are considered to be a tryhard, or that they must be a bot. If you take a look at the Fortnite Item Shop, you will notice that there are a whole bunch of different Fortnite skins, some of which are more difficult to obtain than others.
These so-called tryhard players may have obtained a certain skin that will make them stand out (and feared) on the battlefield. With all of this in mind, let’s take a look at what the sweatiest skins in Fortnite are.
Original/Early Fortnite Skins
If you happen to come up against players that are wearing the original skins founded at the very inception of Fortnite, then you might find yourself in for a rough time. This would of course indicate that you are playing against someone who has been playing the Battle Royale title since before it transcended to extreme popularity.
If you see the likes of the Renegade Raider, Ghoul Trooper, or others from this very early period in the game’s timeline, then you have more than likely found yourself a tryhard.
Some Fortnite skins are only available by certain real world means. This often surrounds buying a certain product and gaining an exclusive cosmetic as a reward. This was true for the Honor 20 mobile device, which would offer players the Wonder skin for buying the phone.
This would then see the skin hitting the market and selling for a hefty chunk of cash by cosmetic standards. So, no matter how you obtained this skin, it was still gotten by those who must have been really dedicated to Fortnite.
Now these Fortnite skins were made part of a seasonal event, specifically the winter event at the tail-end of last year. Be aware though, as this is one of the most tryhard sets of skins that you can find. In fact, you are going to find that a lot of high-level players have adopted these skins, no matter what the time of year is.
Given the price tag attached to them, you can hedge your bets on a lot of money being spent on these skins, showcasing the sweatiness of the player who still roams the arena in a seasonal outfit at this unrelated time of year.
The phrase Soccer Skin and Tryhard seem to very much go hand in hand. The increase in availability soon did away with the attachment of such tags as sweaty. There have been additional releases, but the coined phrase is still rampant in the Fortnite community. It is considered by many to be the most tryhard set of skins within the realm of the popular battle royale franchise, so be aware if you have seen anyone in a full kit.
So yes, the soccer skins have been pretty much nominated to be one of those skin sets that you just simply loathe seeing when spotted, and the same can be said for the Bullseye skin.
Despite this particular cosmetic trying to promote peace and love, it has been unable to shake that tryhard status, even with the release of a newer version of the skin with an added variant. This clearly wasn’t enough to want to stop people from shooting Bullseye dwellers on sight and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
The past few skins discussed can be seen in a negative light due to their overall sweatiness, but the negativity surrounding Sparkplug is often for a different reason. You might not see it as often as others, but they should be recognized as a decent player if they have adopted this skin.
You won’t see it as much as others on this list, but those Sparkplugs out there are more often than not keen to showcase their skills as proficient builders and deadly assassins. Be careful when navigating your way around a Sparkplug, that’s for sure.
Ah, the Banner Brigade. These are often some of the most tryhard players of all, some might say even more so that the Soccer skins. Those players at the top of the game are commonly seen in the Banner Brigade outfits, and when considering their value, you can see why.
For 800 V-Bucks, you could get a skin set that had the option for you to alternate the style of it. With that in mind, it’s clear to understand why certain players would opt for this particular skin.
The Aura skin is definitely up there with the most tryhard of Fortnite skins, though the reasoning behind it isn’t exactly clear. What we do know is that a lot of players who play on the professional circuit use this skin, which may be the best explanation as to why it’s so sweaty.
It is more than likely that audience members will have seen this preference of pro players and attempted to replicate that, as well as their style of play.
On the subject of professional players, the Dark Bomber skin hit the mainstream thanks to the fans of FaZe Sway. The player using this skin made it circulate amongst the tryhard players and reflects the era of the Brite Bomber which was often seen in the same light. If you do come across a Dark Bomber, odds are that you have a fair old scrap on your hands to deal with.
We have arguably saved the best (and sweatiest) until last with Crystal. This is because it once again was represented by pro players, so much so that it was well represented by Bugha, the winner of the World Cup Solo tournament.
That isn’t the main reason that makes it a tryhard skin, however. The reason being is that you need to have put in over 150 hours into Creative mode in order to be able to war the skin when you play the main Battle Royale game.
These are the most tryhard skins that you can find in the popular effort from Epic Games. The Fortnite item shop is often filled with a number of different Fortnite skins, but some beneath the surface reveals more about the player than others.
