Australian Fortnite star Kathleen ‘Loserfruit’ Belsten is the next content creator added to the game, as part of the Icon Series, and leakers have revealed exactly what fans can expect from her new skin bundle.

The Icon Series skin collection was introduced by Epic to highlight some of the best creators on Fortnite and was kicked off with Ninja’s character being added to the battle royale on January 16.

Not long after the release of the Ninja skin, it was announced that Australian star Loserfruit would be next-in-line to become a playable Fortnite character.

Unfortunately for her fans, Loserfruit later revealed that her Icon Series skin, which was expected to be released around June 3, was delayed by Epic Games until further notice.

However, the hype for her Icon Series release has now started to build once again after Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared a proper look at the full bundle on June 21.

While the skin has been leaked before in low quality, ShiinaBR explained that the files have now been decrypted, with the full release coming later on June 21.

The Loserfruit skin pack also includes a dynamic outfit as well as her “Buddy Bag” back bling, “Fruit Punchers” Pickaxe, and a Bounce Berry emote.

Shortly after the new bundle was leaked, Loserfruit went live on her Twitch channel and revealed that she along with some of her friends have been given early access to try it out early.


However, the latest Icon series collection is not available to the public, as of yet, and Epic followed up by releasing a blog post, explaining that it would be released in the store at 5 PM/ 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST / on June 21.

While the pricing has not been confirmed by Epic Games, the skin will likely be available, both individually and as part of a bundle, for 1500 V-bucks or 2000 V Bucks depending on the version selected.

Epic Games also teased in their blog post that popular Spanish YouTuber TheGrefg will be next addition to the Icon series and they will be releasing more information soon.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
