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.

Fortnite’s Combat Pistol is a worse version of the now vaulted pistol
The new Combat Pistol is worse than Fortnite’s now vaulted pistol. Here’s why the Combat Pistol is inferior to the OG Pistol.
The new Combat Pistol in Fortnite Season 8 is a slight downgrade from the original pistol, and players aren’t happy about it.
The pistol has been a staple weapon in Fortnite since Chapter 1 Season 1. The phrase “it’s better than nothing” definitely applies to the Pistol. It’s not very strong, has poor range, and is at the bottom of every tier list.
However, if you and an opponent land at the same spot, a pistol beats not having a weapon. Yet, Fortnite has somehow managed to introduce a weapon that’s worse than the original Pistol.
In fact, Epic Games has crafted a “new” weapon that is seemingly the original pistol but with worse stats. The new Combat Pistol is now in Fortnite, but players aren’t happy with its arrival.
The Combat Pistol is worse than the OG
At first, players were excited to try out the new Combat Pistol. The Combat Assault Rifle was recently added, and it tears through players easily. The Combat Shotgun is a fan favorite weapon that won a recent poll. So why wouldn’t the Combat Pistol be amazing too?
Well, players absolutely hate the new Combat Pistol. Reddit user phr00t_ expressed their opinion of the weapon, and many comments agreed.
The Combat Pistol deals one less damage than the OG Pistol. It has one less bullet in its clip. It has substantially worse recoil than the OG. But it does have a slightly faster reload time and less bullet spread.
However, players do seem to like the sound the Combat Pistol makes. For all of its shortcomings, at least it sounds good when you shoot it. That being said, I’m sure players will continue to drop their pistols for Grey SMGs, and many players may never get around to shooting it.

Fortnite x League of Legends: Jinx Skin, release date, and price
Fortnite and League of Legends are teaming up to bring the Champion Jinx to The Island in celebration of the new animated series Arcane.
Fortnite is collaborating with League of Legends to celebrate the release of the Netflix Original animated series Arcane.
League of Legends is one of the most popular Esports titles. Two of its largest Esports events are the second and third most-watched Esports tournaments worldwide. Nearly 4 million viewers tuned in during the 2019 and 2020 World Championships.
With Fortnite making a habit of collaborating with the biggest and best games in the industry, it was only a matter of time before it collaborated with LoL. And what better time than during the release of the new League of Legends show.
Arcane is an animated series coming to Netflix that features various champions from League of Legends. To celebrate its release, Fortnite is bringing League of Legends champion Jinx to The Island.
Fortnite Jinx Skin release date and price
Arcane premiers on Netflix on Saturday, November 6th. And according to notable dataminer ShiinaBR, the Jinx skin will release sometime this week (Nov. 1 – 6).
That being said, we don’t know exactly when Jinx will be available to purchase. However, we can assume that it will be either Friday or Saturday to build hype for the show’s release.
As for the price, the League of Legends skin will likely cost the same as other Fortnite Gaming Legends skins. Jinx’s base skin will cost 1,500 V-Bucks and might also have a bundle that discounts the cost of her accessories.
Of course, the Jinx set will likely include a glider, pickaxe, and back bling. Other Gaming Legends sets have gone as far as to include emotes and additional style options.
As the release of Arcane draws near and more details are revealed, we will continue to keep this article updated. However, you should be able to dominate Fortnite as your favorite League of Legends character by this weekend.
