Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf was the winner of the 2019 Fortnite World Cup, and now the best solos player in the world is getting his very own Bugha Icon Series skin.
Before the 2019 World Cup, Bugha had a respectable online following, but he was still overshadowed by massive content creators like Ninja and Tfue. It wasn’t until he won the solos World Cup and claimed the title of Best Fortnite Player in the World that his following exploded.
The 17-year-old took home $3million and gained a loyal following that would stick with him over the years. While Bugha was undoubtedly the best, other streamers and content creators were being rewarded with Icon Series outfits. Players such as Ninja, TheGrefg, and LoserFruit were among the first to have their personas immortalized in Fortnite.
