Fortnite has seen various real-life entertainers, and professional athletes become playable characters in the popular video game. A recent report points towards NBA legend LeBron James being the next Fortnite Icon Series skin.

Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to bringing monumental crossovers to the Fortnite Universe. Many of these crossovers have to do with other entertainment franchises like Marvel and DC, but others deal with real-life people, most notably when it comes to the Icon Series.

A recent report from a notable leaker in the community states that the next skin for the Icon Series will be none other than NBA star LeBron James.

The report of the possible Fortnite LeBron James Icon Series skin comes from Shiina, who has been known to be one of the top leakers in the Fortnite world and has had many leaks and reports come true in the past.

Shiina took to Twitter on July 5 and reported that they had exclusively learned that a Fortnite LeBron James Icon Series skin is coming to the game in the future.

This addition of the Los Angeles Lakers player would not be out of the norm, as the game previously collaborated with the NBA in The Crossover event.

The community was treated to a first look at what the upcoming Fortnite LeBron skin will look like, thanks to reputable community member iFireMonkey on July 12, 2021. You can check out the new cosmetic item below, which consists of three different versions.

Fortnite has also seen other real-life athletes become skins in the game, such as soccer superstars Harry Kane and Marco Reus, so it would not be surprising to see arguably the most famous basketball player in the world become a playable character to add to Fortnite’s already extensive list of crossover skins.

There has been no information regarding a possible release date for this Fortnite LeBron James Icon Series skin, but we will update this piece with any information regarding the arrival of this cosmetic item when it becomes available.

Each new week of Fortnite brings a ton of Legendary and Epic Quests that you can complete to earn some neat XP and Battle Stars as you progress through the Season 7 Battle Pass.

With the arrival of the 17.21 update, we’re now in Week 8, and one of the new Legendary Quests requires you to mindwipe Bunker Jonesy, Swamp Stalker, or Human Bill.

Here’s how you can find them.

The good news is that this challenge only requires you to go after one of them, and it doesn’t matter which one you choose. NPCs can be found in specific locations across Fortnite Island.

Human Bill hangs out at Steamy Stacks, in the northeast part of the map. Bunker Jonesy can be found just south of Misty Meadows which is at the south end of the Island. As the name implies, Swamp Stalker will be at Slurpy Swamp.

You can visit whichever one of these characters you want in order to complete this Legendary Quest. To make things a bit easier, we’ve marked each of their spawn locations on the map below:

If you want to complete this challenge quickly, then we recommend going to Swamp Stalker, since this NPC is much easier a target than the other two. Interacting with her should wipe her memories clean.

Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP for your efforts. Just be careful of other players who will also be in these areas to complete the challenge. Keep some good gear on you, and be ready for a fight.
