It’s pretty much every day that Fortnite is getting cool skins, but this is one of the greatest.
Aussie YouTuber Lazarbeam has just had his Icon skin join the game and he’s thrown it back to his tradie days prior to becoming a YouTube sensation. The latest Icon series skin includes tradie gear such as a hi-vis shirt, tool belt and sledgehammer. There’s also a meat-pie emote which allows you to chow down a classic Aussie meat pie.
The Lazerbeam bundle will launch on March 5th at 11am AEDT and includes: Lazarbeam’ Outfit, ‘Baby Gingy’ Back Bling, ‘Ol’ Mate Sledgy’ Pickaxe and ‘Lunch Break’ Emote, which allows players to chomp down on a classic meat pie in-game.
“I’m excited to share a slice of Australian culture with the global Fortnite community,” said Lazarbeam. “It’s surreal seeing yourself depicted in a video game like Fortnite, so I was eager to add some Australian inspiration from my tradie roots when designing the Outfit and Bundle. And who doesn’t love a meat pie?” said Lazerbeam.
I can’t wait to jump into Fortnite later this week and see a bunch of Aussie tradies bouncing around the place.
Rather than do something over the top with my skin i wanted to honour my beginnings.
Also I think its really fucking funny to have a tradie in Fortnite.
