Spanish YouTuber and streamer TheGrefg is finally getting his own Fortnite skin and matching cosmetics. Here’s how you can claim them in the game.
David ‘TheGrefg’ Martinez Canovas is the most popular Spanish Fortnite player on the internet, so it was only a matter of time until he joined the likes of Ninja, Loserfruit, and Lachlan by getting his own cosmetics in the game.
TheGrefg unveiled the skin during a Twitch stream on Monday, January 11, 2021, where he also broke an insane record in the process: A whopping 2.4 million people tuned in to watch his unveiling, proving why he deserves the honor of getting his own skin.
The new skin is part of the Fortnite Icon Series, which also features the likes of rapper Travis Scott, DJ and producer Marshmello, and the mascot of dance music trio Major Lazer.
Fans who want to get their hands on TheGrefg’s skin and matching cosmetics won’t have long to wait, as Epic Games have confirmed they’ll arrive when the item shop updates on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at 7 PM ET.
There’s no price yet, but TheGrefg stated during his Twitch stream that the price for the whole bundle should be somewhere between 2,000 and 3,000 V-Bucks.
It’s likely that the skin and his cosmetics, like the back bling and the pickaxe, will be available to purchase separately too. We’ll update with prices when we get official confirmation.
The skin will only be available for a limited time, so get it quick if you’ve been anticipating it for a while.
As with previous Icon Series skins, Epic Games will be hosting a tournament to celebrate TheGrefg being added to Fortnite. Even better, there will be a chance to win the skin before it hits the item shop.
The game mode for the tournament will be the Floor Is Lava LTM, which makes battles even more intense as dangerous lava slowly rises from the ground, eventually covering the entire map. It’s TheGrefg’s favorite.
Epic Games have confirmed that the tournaments will run on Thursday, January 14 (squads) and Friday, January 15 (solo). Each day will have different TheGrefg cosmetics available to unlock by placing high enough on the leaderboards.
As well as a skin, TheGrefg will also arrive with a number of cosmetics. There’s a pickaxe that’s essentially a giant video game controller on a stick, and a back bling that looks like three floating Dragon Balls, but all-black with yellow details.
He will also have his own emote, which sees him dancing around a video game controller – the same one that appears on the pickaxe. An image has also been shared of his reactive ‘final form’ which you can see above.
