The 2019 Fortnite World Cup Solo winner Bugha has teamed up with Epic to release a new Iconic skin and cosmetic set for fans.
Fortnite streamer and competitor Bugha (AKA Kyle Giersdorf) previously won the battle royale’s 2019 Solo World Cup. Epic is releasing a Bugha skin with other cosmetics to honor this massive achievement as part of its Icon Series.
Previous Fortnite Icon skins have included the mega-streamer Ninja, American DJ Marshmello, and NBA superstar LeBron James. The eighteen-year-old is in esteemed company, and his cosmetic bundle lives up to its ‘Icon’ status, offering multiple styles and accessories, with his cute pug even making an appearance.
How much is the Bugha Fortnite skin?
Bugha’s Icon Series skin and set are available for purchase from the Fortnite Item Shop for a limited time. It will cost fans 1500 V-Bucks for the standard Bugha Outfit and the adorable Zoey Trophy Back Bling, which is shaped like the world champ’s trophy and contains his pug. The skin includes the Bugha Elite and World Champion Bugha styles, as well as his default look.
The Bugha Set is currently discounted at 1800 V-Bucks. At full price, the set is priced at 2600 V-Bucks. In addition to the trio of Bugha Skin styles and Zoey Trophy Back Bling, fans purchasing the set will also receive the Bugha Blades Pickaxe and the Bring It Around Emote that the competitor is known for.
To purchase the required V-Bucks, fans should navigate to the Store tab, select the number of V-Bucks they want, click ‘Purchase,’ enter the card details (if they aren’t already stored) and then confirm the order. Fortnite cosmetics bought on one console will carry over to other systems, as long as players have the same Epic account signed in.
Bugha’s Late Game Arena and Tournament
Carrying on with the celebrations, Epic has teamed up with Bugha to create a Trios LTM: Bugha’s Late Game Arena. Running from July 20 until July 28, groups of three will compete in the Fortnite map with the storm already closing in from the beginning. It will also have custom, random loadouts that Epic has designed with the help of the young World Cup winner.
Playing Bugha’s Late Game Arena will earn players Hype, and anybody who earns 1500 Hype before July 28 will be eligible to participate in Bugha’s Late Game Tournament, starting July 28. Players who qualify and enter this version of Bugha’s Late Game will compete against others in their region for the chance of sharing $100,000 in prize money with their team.
The tournament will consist of two rounds, with each round lasting two hours and a maximum of ten matches played in each round. As well as earning the 1500 Hype to compete in this mode, players must also have 2FA enabled on their Epic account.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
