World Cup Solo Champion, Content Creator, and a core member of the community, Bugha himself is joining the Fortnite Icon Series! Bugha’s Icon Series Set will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop starting Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at 8 PM ET. But before that, fitting for the occasion, Bugha’s making an entrance with a competitive new LTM: Bugha’s Late Game. Prove yourself in this Arena mode to qualify for a one-day, cash-prize tournament!


All in the Elbows: The Bugha Set in Detail

Not long after Bugha’s Late Game becomes available, the Bugha Outfit will enter the Item Shop alongside other items of his Set. Attach to your back the Fortnite World Cup trophy — holding his beloved pug Zoey inside — with the Zoey Trophy Back Bling, sharpen your focus with the dual Bugha Blades Pickaxe, and activate the elbows with the Bring It Around Emote.

As well as the default Style, the Bugha Outfit comes with the electrified Bugha Elite Style and the World Champion Bugha Style: his bestowed victory attire after winning the World Cup Solo Finals.


Bugha’s Late Game Arena and Tournament

Running from July 20 until July 28, Bugha’s Late Game Arena puts players right in the middle of competitive Fortnite. With your Trio, you’ll drop on the Island while the Storm’s already closing in. We’ve collaborated with Bugha to curate nine starting inventories grouped into three team loadouts. Each Trio will be assigned one of these team loadouts at random.

As you play Bugha’s Late Game Arena, you’ll be able to earn Hype that’s unique to this mode. The players who earn at least 1500 Hype before Bugha’s Late Game Tournament on July 28 will be eligible to participate in the tournament. In this version of Bugha's Late Game, qualified players will compete against others in their region for a share of $100,000!

(Specific timings and prizes for each region will be displayed in the Compete tab in-game). Players must have 2FA enabled on their Epic account before competing.
