Fortnite Lazarbeam skin revealed – details & release date
YouTuber Lannan ‘Lazarbeam’ Eacott is the next creator to get his own skin in Fortnite, and it’ll be available for players to own in just a few days time.
Icon Series skin reveals have become big events for Fortnite, even more so than the many high-profile pop culture crossovers like Predator, Street Fighter, and The Walking Dead that we’ve seen so far in Season 5.
A number of prominent Fortnite players and streamers including Loserfruit, Ninja, and Lachlan have received their own Icon Series skins in the game, and players are always wondering who will be next.
Well, it seems as though Fortnite players will get to play as Lazarbeam soon, as the Australian YouTuber officially announced his skin in a brand-new video on March 1, after teasing it earlier in the day.
What does LazarBeam’s skin look like?
In a video uploaded to his official YouTube channel, Lazarbeam showed off his Fortnite skin to the world for the first time – and it might not look like you think it would.
As shown in the video, the skin features a construction worker-style look, with a neon green button-down shirt, a tool-belt, and some grey shorts. There’s also an alternate style with a vest, sunglasses, and a hat.
According to Lazarbeam, he was inspired by his humble beginnings as a construction worker, and the YouTuber decided to honor those beginnings with his Fortnite skin.
His skin bundle also comes with an emote called Lunch Break – which features the character sitting down, eating a mini pie – as well as a sledgehammer pickaxe, and a construction worker gingerbread back bling.
You can check out the announcement video, which features an extended look at the skin, emote, and bundle itself, below:

According to the video, Lazarbeam’s bundle, as well as the individual skin and cosmetics, will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop on March 4, 2021.
Unfortunately, the pricing for the bundle is currently unknown, but if we look back at other Icon Series bundles, it’s not hard to get an idea of what it could cost.

Ninja’s bundle cost 2,000 V-Bucks, the Lachlan bundle cost 2,200 V-Bucks, and the Loserfruit bundle cost 1,800 V-Bucks, so Lazarbeam’s bundle will likely be in the range of 1,800 to 2,200 V-Bucks.
