FORTNITE players can now live out their tradie fantasy in-game as Aussie streamer Lazerbeam’s likeness has been added to the Fortnite Item Shop. Lannan ‘Lazerbeam’ Eacott is the latest streamer as well as the third Australian to to be added to the game via the Fortnite Icons Series. The announcement was made earlier today live on his Youtube channel.
Lazerbeam’s bundle of cosmetics turns up the Australian aesthetic in-game though his trademark outfits and a very Aussie emote. The Lazerbeam Bundle includes two variants of the Aussie tradie outfit, including the traditional hi-vis get up, as well as back bling, a sledge hammer pick-axe and a “Lunch Break” emote. Nothing is more Aussie than the emote though as players with it equipped can sit back and enjoy a meat pie between takedowns.
“I’m excited to share a slice of Australian culture with the global Fortnitecommunity,” said Lazarbeam. “It’s surreal seeing yourself depicted in a video game like Fortnite, so I was eager to add some Australian inspiration from my tradie roots when designing the Outfit and Bundle. And who doesn’t love a meat pie?”
The Lazerbeam Bundle will be available from the Fortnite Item Shop from 11AM AEDT March 5, however players will have a chance to score the Lazerbeam outfit early by competing in the Lazar & Fresh’s Super Knockback tournament on March 3.
