Khaby Lame in Fortnite: Everything you need to know
Lame posted a video on TikTok on the morning of August 23, where an unknown visitor rang his doorbell. The 41-second clip showcased the TikToker opening a package branded with his name.
He continuously opened boxes before arriving at the gift, which the viewer cannot see. The package's contents are unknown. However, the video’s caption of “I’m in,” coupled with the hashtag #FortniteChapter4Season4, provided enough intel.
More than 850K people have viewed the video as of this posting. As stated earlier, Epic Games published the Tweet below, confirming that the Khaby Lame Icon Series Fortnite bundle is coming to Fortnite in Chapter 4 Season 4, which launches this weekend.
The teaser posted by Fortnite gives fans a brief look at the outfit. It includes Khaby Lame's iconic shrug hand gesture on his shirt and potentially as an Emote.
What's the story of this famous TikTok creator?
Lame has built the most considerable fanbase of any TikToker since posting his first video in 2020. His content revolves around mocking “life hack” videos without saying anything. Instead, he uses hand gestures that have become iconic.
The 23-year-old regularly garners tens of millions of views on his videos. Considering Fortnite’s propensity for adding viral TikTok songs and dances to the game, it’s unsurprising to see Khaby Lame get an in-game cosmetic set.
Khaby Lame joins a growing list of Fortnite Icon Series members, including Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, LeBron James, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, and many more.
Epic Games has not clarified whether Khaby Lame’s Fortnite Icon Series set will be part of the Chapter 4 Season 4 Battle Pass. The new season is expected to launch this weekend after a brief downtime.
