However, he rose to prominence by playing Epic Games’ battle royale and hasn’t looked back ever since.

Fans around the world love LazarBeam for his hilarious and straightforward personality. Back in 2019, he even swore during a kid-friendly event for Fortnite.

To further celebrate his past, LazarBeam even built a house from in-game material in Fortnite with his own skin.

“Getting some materials! Very first thing I’m doing since I was a tradie, since I was a construction worker. I built a house boys! I used to build in real-life, now I build in Fortnite. Piece of Art!” said Lazar.

LazarBeam gets a Victory Royale with his own skin

LazarBeam was live in front of hundreds of thousands of viewers when he entered the first match with his own skin. Naturally, he was nervous and afraid to encounter stream snipers. To his surprise, a majority of players surrendered themselves as soon as they spotted him.

“Well, having your own skin in the game is awesome! People just let you kill them, this is sick, I may never lose a game again,” joked the streamer.

Despite the inactivity lately, LazarBeam is still one of the best Fortnite players ever. Owing to his experience, he easily won the match and gave fans the Victory Royale they wanted.

To say the least, the Fortnite Icon outfit portrays LazarBeam’s journey through the years perfectly. The community now looks forward to witnessing other big names like SypherPK also become a part of this reputed series.
