Here is how and when you can get this rare Fortnite skin before it’s too late!

The Janky Fortnite skin is not on the proverbial Mount Rushmore of Fortnite cosmetics, but it's become ultra-rare. This lovable humanoid animal creature is closely associated with Guggimon, an Instagram-famous fashion horror artist and mixtape producer. Janky last appeared in the Fortnite Item Shop 848 days ago, on December 22, 2021, and that lengthy hiatus ends on April 18, 2024.

Here is when and how you can acquire the Janky skin in Fortnite, which includes a LEGO variant this time around.

When can I get the Janky skin in Fortnite? How much will it cost?

Those eager to acquire the Janky skin should head to the Item Shop at 8 p.m. ET on April 18, 2024. Many leakers have confirmed that the highly sought-after Outfit will return for the first time in nearly two and a half years.

Below, we have provided a look at the entire Janky Fortnite collection, including the last known pricing:

A brief history of Janky

Janky debuted in Fortnite on September 18, 2021, and was described by the official Fortnite account as "a fashion icon and the world's wildest stuntman extraordinaire." This character is part of Superplastic, a global entertainment brand that creates and manages a roster of world famous synthetic artists and influencers.

Although it's no Renegade Raider, Janky has fallen into the "rare Fortnite skin category." This character has only appeared in the Item Shop five times, all of which occurred in 2021. Any cosmetic that disappears for a lengthy period increases in value and desirability. Content creators, YouTubers, and leakers have started to take notice, and players inherently want to add that cosmetic to their collections.

Janky returns for an unknown period on April 18 at 8 p.m. ET, so grab it before it disappears again.
