Epic Games have released the official rules for Lachlan’s upcoming event, and as promised, it is truly one-of-a-kind!

Australian YouTube star Lachlan “Lachlan” Ross Power was recently announced as the next creator to enter the Fortnite Icon Series. His new Outfit, Back Bling, Emote and Pickaxe will be available in the Item Shop on November 12 at 7PM ET.

However, there is a way to get your hands on these exclusive cosmetics before then. Top placing teams from the Pickaxe Frenzy tournament will win early (and free) access to the full Lachlan Icon Series set.

What is it?

Well, the clue’s in the name. Armed with just a pickaxe as a primary weapon, players will have to find Rusty Cans, Impulse Grenades, Decoy Grenades and Supply Drops to fight for the Victory Royale.

No healing items will spawn either, the only ways to heal are by Emoting or eliminating an enemy. Also, don’t expect to be tunnelling late-game. Each material is capped at 10, so there’s no hiding in this one.


This is a Trios tournament, in which teams will have a two-hour period to play out a maximum of 10 matches. The ME, EU, NAE, NAW and BR events take place on November 7, and for OCE and ASIA it’s November 8. Make sure to check the compete tab in-game for your regions exact time.
