On the other side, Epic Games has done a befitting job of developing Lachlan’s skin. The skin outrightly matches the YouTuber, and has the classic comb-over haircut. It has a back bling named ‘Banner Cape’ that has Lachlan’s electrical logo on it, and a dual build pickaxe skin with a scythe and an axe.

Last, but not least, Lachlan’s skin has a backflip emote named Power Punch.

“I didn’t want to do a dance.. a dance didn’t feel like me. I’ve always loved the backflip emote since it was added in the game and it’s just like a nice little animation. That’s what I was looking for,”

Following Lachlan, SypherPK might be the next big name to get his own skin. In a recent video on Fortnite updates, the YouTuber congratulated Lachlan for his accomplishment. However, in the process, he teased his own collaboration with Epic Games for an exclusive Fortnite skin.
