Part of the success of Fortnite since its release over three years ago can be put down to the work carried out by content creators and streamers. Many Esports personalities have been promoting the Epic Games title on a regular basis, perhaps none more so than Ali “SypherPK” Hassan. The American has 4 million Twitch followers to his name, along with 4.72 million YouTube subscribers. As a result of such popularity, many have called for SypherPK to be given his own Fortnite skin.
Why SypherPK Deserves His Own Skin
Epic Games established the Fortnite Icon Series in a bid to reward streamers and personalities with their own skins, with the likes of Ninja and Lachlan having already benefited from it. It is now expected that SypherPK will become the next Esports personality to be handed his very own skin.
The 24-year-old had his say on the matter after a host of fans praised him for his consistency. SypherPK certainly didn’t write off his chance of receiving a personalized skin, while also thanking those who had helped him in reaching the level he has. Meanwhile, SypherPK’s close friend Nickmercs has also had his say on the matter, with the FaZe Clan content creator having also talked up his chances.
How Sypher Has Helped Fortnite
While some content creators have turned their back on Fortnite because of skill-based matchmaking or a faulty meta, SypherPK is one of the names to have stuck around despite the downfall in the games’ following. The popular American still regularly creates content surrounding Fortnite, while he has also played a major role in the likes of Nickmercs, Ninja and TimTheTatman making their returns.
SypherPK has long teased his followers over a potential Fortnite skin, however it was Lachlan who recently broke the news of his own skin. The likes of Lannan “Lazarbeam” Eacott, Elliott “Muselk” Watkins and Fresh are other streamers potentially in line for their own skin, however many believe that SypherPK should be first on the list.
