Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf was the winner of the 2019 Fortnite World Cup, and now the best solos player in the world is getting his very own Bugha Icon Series skin.
Before the 2019 World Cup, Bugha had a respectable online following, but he was still overshadowed by massive content creators like Ninja and Tfue. It wasn’t until he won the solos World Cup and claimed the title of Best Fortnite Player in the World that his following exploded.
The 17-year-old took home $3million and gained a loyal following that would stick with him over the years. While Bugha was undoubtedly the best, other streamers and content creators were being rewarded with Icon Series outfits. Players such as Ninja, TheGrefg, and LoserFruit were among the first to have their personas immortalized in Fortnite.
Bugha’s Fortnite Icon Series Skin
Now, the long-awaited Bugha Icon Series skin has been revealed alongside Bugha’s Late Game mode and tournament. The cosmetic set comes with three style variants, an emote, harvesting tool, and back bling featuring Bugha’s pug Zoey.
The Bugha’s Late Game mode is a new trios arena mode that starts players in the third zone. This mode will be available to play from July 20 to 28. A tournament featuring this game mode will be held on July 28. The prize pool for the tournament is $100,000.
Bugha’s set will be in the Item Shop starting at 8 p.m. on July 20. Players can purchase each of Bugha’s items individually or as a discounted bundle. The reveal trailer below showcases each of the new cosmetic items, as well as explains the meaning behind some of the items.
With the Bugha Icon Series skin adding Kyle Giersdorf to Fortnite, who do you think should be next? Should it be another competitive player like Faze Sway or Benjy Fishy, or should it be a massive content creator like SypherPK or NickEh30. Let us know down below who should be the next Fortnite Icon Series skin.

- Stage 1 – Subscribers will unlock the Protocol Back Bling for subscribing anytime after Fortnite v17.50
- Stage 2 – Back Bling evolves into Protocol Elite Style on 14th of second month
- Stage 3 – Back Bling evolves again adding Protocol Overdrive Style. Zen Axe Pickaxe unlocks on 14th of third month
