A Bugha Fortnite skin, pet, and emote is coming to the game soon.
Epic Games have collaborated with a number of different companies and artists in order create their own Fortnite skins or a locker bundle. The first collaboration we had was with Marvel Avengers and since then we’ve have music artists, sports collaborations and more.
The latest collaboration saw LeBron James enter the Fortnite world with a skin and challenges. It’s been a while since we’ve had a content creator get their own skin in the game until now. A new icon series has been announced for the Fortnite World Cup winner, Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf.
Here’s everything we know about the Bugha x Fortnite Icon Series skin including a release date, the cosmetics, and the cup that’ll take place at the end of this month.
Fortnite Bugha Skin
Yesterday, Bugha tweeted “the reveal” along with a countdown GIF. However, it didn’t seem to cross anyone’s mind that he could be teasing a Fortnite skin. However, on his Twitch live stream today, he revealed his upcoming skin, a pet, pickaxe, and an emote.
Here are the images of the Bugha Fortnite skin which includes three different skin styles, one with a different jersey, and one with different clothing and a cap.
Bugha has confirmed on stream that the Fortnite Bugha Icon Series skin set will be releasing on Tuesday, July 20th at 8 PM EST. We’re not sure how long the skin will be available in the shop for, but we’d assume it’ll be available for a few days at least.
