Fortnite: all you need to know about the skin

People who decide to purchase Bugha’s set will get an outfit, back bling, harvester tool, and an emote.

Bugha outfit

The outfit, arguably the most important part of the skin comes in 3 styles. The default style, the Bugha Elite style, and the World Champion Bugha style. Both the Elite and World Champions styles look awesome and will certainly inspire a competitive attitude.

Back Bling

The Back Bling is an essential part of the skin as it is reflective of Bugha’s love for his pug. The back bling is the trophy he won, and inside it is his pug. The back bling goes well with the outfit and the cute pug popping its head out of the thing is just the icing on the cake.

Harvester tool

The harvester tool is a bladed weapon that can be dual-wielded and is called Dual Bugha Blades. They add an edge to the outfit, and the best part is that there’s an electric effect. And also, the grips/handles of the blades bear the name Zoey, which is the name of Bugha’s pug.

The emote is inspired by Bugha’s dance from after winning the World Cup. The emote is called Bring It Around, and now you get to use it in your matches.

Bugha’s skin is surely one of the better ones to release in Fortnite this year, and players can’t wait to get their hands on it.
