Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite Lachlan Pickaxe Frenzy Tournament.
Epic Games announced the icon series earlier in the year when the Ninja Fortnite skin was revealed. However, there were skins released before the announcement including the Marshmello skin that were added to the series.
There haven’t been too many content creators that have received their very own skin with the last to get a skin being Loserfruit.

It’ll take place today and here’s everything you need to know including how to get the Lachlan skin in Fortnite, what time the pickaxe frenzy will start in your region, the rules, whether you need 2FA and more.
