A Complete List of Age-Restricted Fortnite Skins

Fortnite, known for its constant collaboration with popular culture icons and shows, makes little to no mistakes when it comes to satisfying its growing community. However, in a recent update, the popular battle royale has put itself in a tough situation. This update, described as “ISLAND AGE RATINGS” by Fortnite, makes certain islands (game modes) and skins restricted for certain audiences.

In an official X post, Fortnite confirmed that around 7% of the skins have been affected by the age restriction. They can only be equipped in islands rated Teen. Although Fortnite claims these cosmetics are limited to certain maps and game modes for now, it aims to make changes to them, such that the skins are auto-adjusted in appearance based on the island in the future. This can lead to the cosmetics being changed depending on the age of the player.

Fortnite Age-Restrictions Explained

In this update, Fortnite has included an ESRB rating tag to every island. This restricts the criteria for players to not participate in certain games. This also reflects on the skins as the skins also show an error notification of unavailable in certain islands as there will be a younger audience. In case you are eligible, you will be allowed to directly click the play button.

However, if you are under the age criteria, you will have to wait till you are old enough to access that island. Another noticeable change is that parents can unlock the restricted islands for their kids if they want to through parental settings.

    All of us have paid fortunes for the skins we want to wear in game. Could you not just release a version of Fortnite for the younger players? Letting the rest of us who are not offended by skins other players wear carry on as normal?
    I find it very wrong that we can’t play wearing the skins we’ve already paid good money for! Will we be receiving any compensation for nit being allowed to wear whatever skin we like? No of course not..

    This is ridiculous…what is the purpose of putting our age in at the beginning if you are just going to restrict our skins.. some of these skins came from Battle passes…and they are only skins… People don’t care what skin you wear while playing a creative game.. Also the loading screens we are the only one who sees them so why restrict those too… It’s ridiculous..Please give us a way to express ourselves again…Also kids have grown up with these some of these characters..like Harley Quinn and Marvel characters..so making now unavailable because some parents complained is silly.. If epic wants to make this a thing… apply it only to the under age accounts then when they become a certain age of requirement they can unlock everything.. We as adults shouldn’t be punished because some people got offended..
