How to ride animals in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and use the Saddler

Fortnite has been providing us with skins for over two years. Take a look at all Fortnite tier 100 skins as we rank them from worst to best.

We’re 20 seasons into Fortnite at this point, and 20 Battle Passes deep. We’ve seen hundreds of skins come and go with varying degrees of originality. Some are still in Battle Royale to this day while others are collecting dust in a crowded locker.

Not all Fortnite skins are created equal. Today, we’re looking at the Fortnite tier 100 skins and ranking them from worst to best. Let us know your opinions in the comments!

20. Doctor Strange: Chapter 3 Season 2

This may come as a shock as Marvel skins tend to rank very high, but we’re on a three-season streak of tier 100 Marvel skins. It’s getting old, and this one isn’t really that great.

Doctor Strange feels like it should have been given the Superman treatment, not the Spider-Man. Plus, they didn’t use Benedict Cumberbatch’s face which makes the skin even less exciting to unlock.

19. Vendetta: Season 9

The Vendetta is one of the least favored tier 100 skins of the bunch. The non-upgraded version is lame and the final stage leaves a lot to be desired.

This one was one of the most uninspired tier 100 skin, in my opinion. It doesn’t look very good, either, which is why it’s placed at the bottom of our rankings.

18. Ice King: Season 7

The Ice King is a skin you’ll hardly ever see in a modern Fortnite match. It’s not the ugliest skin we’ve gotten as a tier 100 reward, but it isn’t far off.

The reason this is so low, though, has to do with the size. This skin is massive and clunky, making you feel like an easy target when you’re wearing it.

17. Ultima Knight: Season X

The Ultima Knight is, simply, an addition to the OG Black Knight that ranks much higher in this list. This is a poor man’s Black Knight and everyone knows it.

Not only is the skin unoriginal, but it’s large and clunky when you rank it up. Anyone who already has the Black Knight won’t be rocking this version into battle

16. Dire: Season 6

The Dire skin is one of the cooler skin concepts Epic has added as a tier 100 skin. The werewolf skin, while interesting, is probably among the least popular skins you’ll see in the game.

The base skin is boring and the upgraded version is too big – two ingredients that lead to a bottom-half ranking.

15. Carnage: Chapter 2 Season 8

fortnite carnage skin

Despite being a crossover skin, Carnage is pretty forgettable. With Season 8 being the finale of Chapter 2, the Cube Queen secret skin was more iconic than the Symbiote. It’s big and bulky, and downright ugly.

14. Ragnarok: Season 5

The Ragnarok skin sits right in the middle of the pack. It’s not horrible, but it’s not great, either. The upgraded skin is a little busy for my taste, so I take everything off and roll with the topless bald man.

13. Fusion: Chapter 2, Season 1

The Fusion from Fortnite Chapter 2 is decent but relatively boring. You’d be hard-pressed to find a player still wearing this skin – especially since there were far better options in the same Battle Pass.

I had this one high on my original rankings (from C2S1) but time has knocked it down to just inside the top-10.

12. Rick Sanchez : Chapter 2 Season 7

Fortnite season 7 rick skin

Being able to play as Rick Sanchez is pretty cool seeing as he’s the most iconic character in one of the most popular animated series in recent history. His unique cell-shaded style makes him stand out from other skins, and his smug look makes it seem like every elimination is a cakewalk.

Rick is lower on the list because of his lack of utility and inevitable plummet in popularity in a few seasons. His cartoon style makes him stick out like a sore thumb in-game. His head is a massive target. And players will likely only use this skin for the next season or so.

11. Omega: Season 4

The Omega skin suffers from many of the problems as of the other bottom-half skins: it’s unathletic. That is until you take all of the armor off of the outfit.

  • Read More: Fortnite split-screen: how to play with friends

I rock this skin stripped-down, just as I prefer the Ragnarok skin. It looks sleeker and cooler that way, in my opinion. The base Omega skin squeaks it into the top-10 – especially since you can change the color on the stripped-down version.

10. Mandalorian: Chapter 2 Season 5

Fortnite Mando

This might be a controversial placement, but I’m not a huge fan of the Mandalorian skin. Fans of the show will probably like it more, but it didn’t really do it for me.

Sure, the customization options are there, but you’ll never go back to the pre-upgraded armor like you could with some of the other tier-100 skins. Baby Yoda is a hit, but the Mando skin leaves a lot to be desired.

9. Luxe: Season 8

The Luxe was the number-one tier 100 skin in my book for a long time. This is one of the only tier 100 skins that I still regularly wear when I play Fortnite, and one of only two female skins in the group.

The real reason this one ranks so highly is the back bling. Those golden wings are at least the second-best back bling reward in any Battle Pass.

8. The Reaper: Season 3

For some, the Reaper is going to be a number-one tier 100 Battle Pass skin. I understand this argument, but I never liked it, myself.

  • Read More: How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

There were some bugs during Season 3 that caused Epic to hand everyone several Battle Pass tiers for free. The result was that almost everyone who bought the Season 3 Battle Pass got the Reaper skin, which is one of the reasons I never really liked it.

Despite my personal bias, I recognize that Season 3 was the golden age of Fortnite and this skin brings back the feels. It’s well-deserving of a top-five finish.

7. Spire Assassin: Chapter 2 Season 6

Fortnite Spire Assassin

The Spire Assassin jumped right to the top-five in my rankings. This skin is one of the best to be released in all of Chapter 2. You look like a dominating force when dressed in its full suit of armor.

It’s always hard to rank a skin while the season is currently underway, but I’m betting that Spire Assassin will be a common sight on the Fortnite island long after Season 6 concludes.

6. Eternal Knight: Chapter 2, Season 3

The Eternal Knight is a strong contender for the best tier-100 skin in the history of Fortnite. All of the variants are cool and unique and the customizable pickaxe is another huge point in favor of the outfit.

Along with only a few others on this list, the Eternal Knight is still a common sight on the Fortnite island. As long as players are still wearing the skin, it deserves a high placement on this list.

5. Midas: Chapter 2, Season 2

Midas remains a favorite of a lot of Fortnite players, whether you’re using his Ghost, Shadow, or all-gold version.

The Midas skin is the best of both worlds. He’s slender, which means he doesn’t take up much of your screen, but he’s still a cool and interesting character whose outfit goes well with a lot of different combinations.

4. Darth Vader: Chapter 3 Season 3

fortnite darth vader feature image

I know, I know… Chapter 3 Season 3 may be the fourth season in a row where Fortnite’s Tier 100 skin was a crossover character. But it’s Darth Vader!

Star Wars fans and Fortnite players alike have waited for the famed Sith Lord to make an appearance in Fortnite since their first collab a long, long time ago. This skin is iconic, and well designed, and people will be rocking this Jedi for a long time to come.

3. Iron Man: Chapter 2 Season 4

Come on, it’s Iron Man. This is how you do a tier-100 crossover skin, and the Mandalorian was a huge step back from Tony Stark in the previous season.

With one skin, you get both Iron Man and Tony Stark – which you can switch between in-game. If you leveled up the Battle Pass, you can also play as Gold, Silver, or Holographic Iron Man/Tony Stark. It’s hard to see this as anything less than a top-rated skin.

2. Spider-Man: Chapter 3 Season 1

fortnite chapter 3 spider man web shooters

Wow, who could have guessed that one of the most highly-praised crossover skins would make it to spot number 2. Previously held by Iron-Man, it makes sense that Peter Parker would take his place eventually.

What’s not to like about his skin? It’s clean, slick, and has some of the best alternate styles to date. Even it’s enlightened skin variants look phenomenal which is something that can’t be said for most Tier 100 skins.

1. Black Knight: Season 2

I know, I know. The Black Knight isn’t technically a Tier 100 skin. It’s a final-tier Battle Pass skin, though, so it’s worth including on this list.

  • Read More: How to tame animals in Fortnite Season 6

The Black Knight is the classic. It’s the OG. Wearing one of these skins doesn’t mean that you’re good, but it does mean that you’ve been playing the game for a long time.

The Black Knight takes the number-one spot because it’s one of the most aesthetically pleasing final-tier skins we’ve ever received. It’s not my personal favorite, but it carries a certain amount of significance for OG Fortnite players.

What’s your number-one tier 100 Fortnite skin? Let us know in the comments.

‘Beautiful soul’: $20k raised for Gold Coast drowning victim

Tributes have poured in for a ‘gorgeous girl’ following her tragic death on the Gold Coast. Find out how family and friends plan to honour her memory.

Central

Don’t miss out on the headlines from Central. Followed categories will be added to My News.

Family and friends have paid tribute to a “beautiful soul” and “gorgeous girl” following her tragic death on the Gold Coast.

Lizzie Kerry drowned near the Esplanade at Elkhorn Ave, Surfers Paradise, about 4am on May 21.

Emergency services performed CPR on Ms Kerry after she was pulled from the water, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the 32-year-old was visiting from NSW and her death was not deemed suspicious.

Ms Kerry had community ties on the Gold Coast, NSW, Melbourne and New Zealand.

Her close friend Kristopher Vincent started an online fundraising page to pay for funeral costs, which has since raised a whopping $20,000.

He described the 32-year-old as a “gorgeous girl”.

“A sister, a daughter, a friend, a kind voice – whatever Lizzie meant to you, she was the brightest light, a ball of energy and the definition of ‘lights up a room’,” Mr Vincent said.

“Her family and friends want to send her off in style and re-live the memories in all of the cities she called home, across Australia and New Zealand.

“Any remaining funds will be donated to Lizzie’s favourite charities.”

Tributes for Ms Kerry flooded her social media accounts, with Jess Petersen describing her as a “beautiful soul”.

“Sending my love to you darling and fly high Lizzie you absolute angel.”

Mel Sharpin said the world would not be the same without her bubbly spirit.

“You will be missed Lizzie Kerry. May you fly even higher in your new life,” she wrote.

“The world won’t be the same without you.”

Mazza McGuirk remembered the outgoing young woman for her “fearless, fun, passionate and generous” soul.

Another urged other people to “live life like Lizzie”.

Just weeks before Ms Kerry’s death, lifeguards pleaded with swimmers to follow safety warnings in the wake of the drowning of a Gold Coast man in his 30s.

There had been five beach rescues on the Gold Coast that week.

Queensland Ambulance Service supervisor Adam Flori said swimmers who ignored safety messages were putting themselves and rescuers at risk.

“It’s frustrating because it doesn’t appear the messages are being heard,” Mr Flori said at the time.

You beauty! Brissie booze start-up selling 3 million cocktails a year

A Brisbane start-up has added an Aussie twist to a classic Italian cocktail which its owner describes as a `kind of Sophia Loren meets Bondi Beach’ and they are set to take off overseas.

Tom Maclean’s quest to add a unique Aussie twist to an Italian aperitivo started over a decade ago and while not without trials his venture is now flying high.

After building up SOFI, which makes Australia’s very own aperitivos and serves more than three million wine-based cocktails annually, he is forging ahead with global plans to take his startup to even greater heights.

This year Brisbane-based SOFI plans to take on the global export market through the launch of a new 16 per cent Alcohol-by-Volume (ABV) SOFI aperitivo format, as well as a collaboration with Australia’s national carrier, Qantas.

Mr Maclean said he was at a barbecue in Sydney when he first thought of what he described as a “kind of Sophia Loren meets Bondi Beach”.

“I love Aussie wines and we have an amazing wine industry. I was living in Bondi and having a lot of backyard barbecues and the wine didn’t really fit with the backyard barbies we were having so I wanted a product that reflected that kind of more casual occasion,” he said.

That germ of an idea complemented Mr Maclean’s travels to Italy, which introduced him to Italian wine-based aperitivo and spritz.

The twist was that he wanted to “Aussie-fy” the classic spritz by using all natural ingredients and no added sugar to appeal to health-focused consumers and Mr Maclean – who at the time was in the finance industry – joined forces with fifth generation winemaker Simon Gilbert, to blend grapes from across the country’s premium wine regions.

They also worked with the late Bill Torrey, who brought decades of experience pioneering botanical distillation.

Increasingly SOFI has been harnessing local extracts of Native Lemon, Tasmanian Pepperberry, Finger Lime and Davidson Plum to ramp up the uniqueness of their concoctions.

Mr Maclean said SOFI’s spritz debuted at the Bondi Farmers Markets in 2013 and three years later the startup was given a shot in the arm with an appearance in The Shark Tank.

They received offers from four of the sharks and accepted a joint offer at the asking price, $130,000 for a 10 per cent split of the business from Glen Richards and Steve Baxter who remain close advisers.

They also raised more than $41,000 from three campaigns through rewards-based crowdfunding platform Pozible and in 2019 SOFI completed a crowd sourced funding offer through Equitise and raised about $550,000.

Mr Maclean, who has returned home to live in Brisbane, said the Qantas deal was kickstarted through Mr Baxter’s team which helped them land an initial introduction to Qantas, five years ago.

“In the middle of Covid Qantas’s head of beverages called me out of the blue saying they wanted to do a special bespoke cocktail to launch international travel,” he said.

“He said they wanted it to be wine-based and have Australian ingredients. We worked for a year developing two recipes and they chose one of those, Sky Spritz, which launched on international flights in December.

“The Qantas deal is a massive one and off the back of that we are getting really strong interest out of international markets.”

The Sky Spritz is an ode to Australian native botanicals, featuring Davidson Plum and Finger

Lime, both of which hail from the subtropical rainforests of Queensland.

While SOFI is flying high with growth of around 20 per cent in 2020-21 and revenue hitting around $2.5m, Mr Maclean said Covid hit them hard, disrupting expansion overseas and keg sales to Australian pubs.

However, Covid also produced opportunities.

“Before Covid hit we were doing a lot of cocktails in kegs with cocktails on tap and we were in some of the biggest high volume venues in the country,” he said.

“But we got smashed by Covid and it was very tough. It was a massive readjustment and we had to stop doing kegs and developed our full strength aperitivo which is in the spirit category.”

SOFI aperitivo has won a silver award at the Melbourne International Spirits Competition 2021 and the company also inked a national deal with one of Australia’s leading distributors, Joval Wine Group.

Mr Maclean said the aperitivo format was not only to keep up with consumer behaviour but to help pave the way with plans for international expansion.

“We had great interest from international chains, yet we couldn’t make the premix canned

cocktail format stack up for export,” he said.

“Australia is pretty unique in that we massively over-index on premixed/RTD/RTS (Ready-to-Drink/Ready-to-Serve) consumption. So in that case, the higher ABV SOFI aperitivo gives us an opportunity to take SOFI to the world. Perhaps, we will sell aperitivo back to Italy?

“Covid lockdowns and consumer behaviour also added to this shift as we saw people creating cocktails. We were super excited about giving our consumers the freedom to mix SOFI to their taste and letting their creativity run wild.”
