How to earn the Throwback Axe Pickaxe for free in Fortnite

On October 30, popular Australian Fortnite creator, Lachlan, announced that he would be the next addition in the line of Fortnite Icon Series skins. The Icon Series is Fortnite’s creator-focused cosmetic line that gives Fortnite YouTubers and Streamers their own in-game emotes, skins, and more.

Surprisingly, Lachlan’s Fortnite skin will enter the game before TheGrefg’s skin, which was originally announced back in January when the Icon Series first released the Ninja outfit.

Lachlan announced his upcoming collaboration in a video on his channel, which premiered on October 30.

The good news for Lachlan fans is that you’ll have an opportunity to earn this skin for free before its official release. Just like Daredevil and several other skins before it, the Lachlan skin will be a prize in an upcoming Fortnite tournament.

The details of the tournament are still under wraps, but more information will be released on November 1. We’ll update this article when Epic and Lachlan tell us more about the skin reveal date, the tournament date, the format, and everything else we need to know.

If we had to guess, the tournament will be something related to Creative Mode or an LTM. Lachlan hosted the Fashion Show World Cup back in Season 1, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see something along these lines. Of course, we could be mistaken and this could be a straight-up Solo, Duos, Trios, or Squads tournament.

In any case, the top percentage of players in each region will earn the Lachlan skin for free after the tournament.

The next creator to get a skin should be TheGrefg, but don’t hold your breath. His skin seems to have faced delay after delay. In the meantime, we’ll be excited to see what Lachlan’s official Fortnite skin looks like.

Update: Lachlan’s Pickaxe Frenzy

On November 1, Epic Games gave the first teaser for Lachlan’s Fortnite skin and announced the Pickaxe Frenzy tournament, which will take place on November 8

This will be a trios Pickaxe tournament, as the name suggests. Players will only be able to use Rusty Cans, Impulse Grenades, Decoy Grenades, and, of course, Pickaxes during the event. Competitors will also have no shields and only 10 materials – enough to build one ramp or wall.

Here’s a look at the scoring system and placement thresholds for each region. Players who finish within the required range will earn the Lachlan skin, Back Bling, Pickaxe, and Emote for free.
