Fortnite's crossovers are going through the roof. More and more new characters from movies, TV, other video games, comics, real-life icons and more are appearing in the game and in our new weekly series 'Fortnite Skins Background' we want to introduce you to one of these Fortnite characters at a time. Today it's Lachlan's turn.

The Lachlan skin is a skin from Fortnite's Icon series. The Icons series unites gaming, music, film and fashion - celebrating the artistic visions, traits and lifestyles of the world's best creators in Fortnite!

Lachlan was first added to the game in Chapter 2, Season 4 on November 13, 2020. But who is Lachlan anyway?

Who is Lachlan?

Lachlan Ross Power is an Australian YouTuber, professional gamer, and internet personality best known for his Fortnite gameplays. He is also the founder of the lifestyle brand and gaming organization PWR.

Power created his first YouTube channel "CraftBattleDuty" on March 19, 2013. He used to play mostly Minecraft, Battlefield, and Call of Duty. His channel name is a mix of these three games. His channel experienced a significant increase in popularity when he started playing Fortnite Battle Royale in 2017.

In January 2019, his channel reached 10 million subscribers, making him the first Australian gaming content creator to reach the milestone. In October 2019, during the Fortnite live event "The End," Power's stream on YouTube peaked at 198,976 concurrent viewers. On October 29, 2019, it was announced that Power had signed a deal with YouTube to stream exclusively on that platform. Previously, he had also streamed on Twitch. In October 2020, Power received his own Fortnite skin in the game as part of the Fortnite Icon series.
