Fortnite uploaded an image of a new skin bundle coming to Fortnite to their Instagram yesterday. The post featured the caption, “Hand-picked by @thaleshenriquecg himself, grab the Pulga Locker Bundle in the Shop now.” Clearly, an Epic official messed up the timing of this release announcement, as it was deleted shortly after, and re-uploaded last night.

Pulga is the alias of Thales Henrique, a Fortnite pro for Team Liquid. He has won multiple FNCS tournaments out of the 24 he has taken part in.

First, the locker bundle features the Sparkplug skin in both its available styles. Second, it includes the scrappy back bling which turns from a friendly dog to an engine upon changing variants. Next, you will get the ‘driver’ pickaxe as part of Pulga’s bundle. This pickaxe is in the shape of a golf club. Finally, it contains the magic wings glider and rainbow rodeo weapon wrap.

While Pulga has not received an icon series skin like Ninja, Lazarbeam, and Loserfruit, this bundle will go a long way in putting his name out into the community. Similar to SypherPK, the Brazilian pro has picked some of his signature items as part of this bundle. The bundle is now available for the price of 2200 V-Bucks.

Alongside this bundle, Epic Games has also dropped the ‘Pulga Cup’ in Brazil. This is a duos-style tournament that will run from March 30 to April 1.

Did Fortnite rob Clix of a bundle?

NRG Clix is a famous North American Fortnite pro who regularly uses the Sparkplug skin in-game. When he saw this bundle at first, he was optimistic it would be named after him. However, he soon found out that it was curated for Pulga. It’s safe to say he did not take too kindly to this.

The streamer has been surrounded by controversy recently. Only a few days ago, he received a message directly from Epic, who threatened to ban the 16-year-old. Clix takes part in 1v1 Fortnite wagers on his stream, which violates gambling laws in many countries. As a result, Epic had no choice but to warn the streamer against doing so.
