If you are here looking for a way to get the Ikonik Skin in Fortnite, I have some bad news for you. There is no legitimate way of getting the Ikonik outfit skin from the Ikonik Set now.
Can You Still Get The Ikonik Skin?
The Answer is NO.
What Is the Ikonik Skin?
The Ikonik Skin was a promotional skin available exclusively for Samsung customers. People who bought the Samsung Galaxy S10+, S10 or S10e were able to get the exclusive cool looking skin. The best part about the skin is how awesome it looks. Usually, exclusive promotional skins don’t look as cool as the Ikonik skin and this is exactly why it is this sought after.
The red and black color combo combined with ninja like aesthetics makes the Ikonik skin one of the best ones around. Many people simply love how sleek and stylish that character is. We are certainly big fans of the skin ourselves and we have no doubt there are many players who crave the skin as well.
When Was It Discontinued?
The Ikonik skin was discontinued from September 27, 2019, and is no longer available. It was replaced by the new GLOW skin in the game. If you got a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Note 9, Note 10, S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G, S9, S9+, A90, A9, A70, A80, Tab S6, and Tab S4, you can download the skin from the Galaxy Store.
This is unfortunate because exclusivity is never a good thing, especially when it comes to online multiplayer videogames. A lot of players want to get the Ikonik skin and have no way of getting it. Not a lot of people are going to pay a couple of hundred dollars to get the Samsung smartphones either. We just wish Epic would release the skin as a paid one in the in-game store down the line so we can at least have the chance of getting it, even if we have to pay for the skin.
While the GLOW skin is also awesome in its own right, it doesn’t match up to the awesomeness of the Ikonik skin. This is exactly why a lot of people are still looking for the skin in the game.
Don’t Fall For Scams
A word of warning though, a lot of websites and third-party sellers are saying you can still get the Ikonik skin in the game. Sure there might be a way to get it by illegal methods, however, many players are reporting Fortnite is actively removing the skin if it was obtained by illegal methods. This means you will not only lose your time but also potentially money. Let’s be honest, no skin is worth losing your account over anyways.
While you can no longer get the Ikonik skin in Fortnite, the game at least gives you the option of getting the new Glow Skin in the game. The Glow skin looks amazing as well and is flashier than the Ikonik Skin.
