Fortnite Skin Red-Nosed Raider: Christmas Skin Item Shop release date? (Pic: EPIC GAMES)
There are some skins which are released at certain times of the year – such as the Skull Trooper at Halloween.
Because Epic Games can rotate any skin in the item shop, you may want to get your favourites while you can.
In January Fortnite introduced Christmas-themed skins to the Item Shop – and they are expected to make a return.
A Fortnite Season 7 cinematic trailer was released which fuelled this speculation.
In the trailer Crackshot, the Nutcracker-themed skin, could be seen running into a cozy cabin.
Here we could see gingerbread men – or Merry Marauder and Ginger Gunner for those who remember.
Another welcomed face was Red-Nosed Raider – and it is believed the trailer is Epic Games way of teasing the return of the skin.
Fortnite Season 7 Red Nosed Raider release date?
The Fortnite skin features a woman wearing red trousers, a white Christmas jumper with a pine-tree on it, white wings and a red nose and antlers.
As of right now, Fortnite has not confirmed when or if Red-Nosed Raider will make return.
However, the Christmas skins, such as Yuletide Ranger and Nog Ops have already appeared in the Item shop.
We definitely expect the Red-Nosed Raider character to return very soon – probably before Christmas.
With two of the Christmas skins already making an appearance, some have predicted it could happen next weekend.
Last year it arrived in the item shop for the first time on December 17, so somewhere around this date could be correct.
If anything like las year, it could be between mid-December to late January.
We already predicted Fortnite would bring back the classic Christmas skins to the winter-themed seventh season.
The Red-Nosed Raider arrived in the item shop for the 2017 Christmas period, and was also available for purchase in January 2018.

Last time the skin could be purchased from the Item Shop for 1,200 V-Bucks.
Epic Games has said about the new season: “Season 7 has arrived with the smash of a mysterious iceberg! Winter has brought many changes to the Fortnite map for you to explore.
“Ziplines are a new way to help you travel to and from high terrain.
“For you chill and thrill seekers, the new Frosty Flights location and Expedition outposts are outfitted with the new Storming planes so you can take to the skies.
“There are tons of new areas to venture to and secrets to uncover, so stay frosty.
