LazarBeam Social Media
Fortnite LazarBeam who also goes by the name Lannan Eacott was born December 14th 1994 in Australia. He is currently the 2nd largest YouTuber in Australia as a kids toy channel is beating him just by a bit. He has two brothers and a sister who is also a YouTuber named Tannar. She has close to 1 million subscribers as of the writing of this article.
LazarBeam early on did not enjoy school and dropped out at an early age of 15. He needed to get a job so he decided to work at a construction company which was also his family.
There he would start making videos on his channel “CrushSlash” which would show construction equipment smashing different things like printers or bottles. He did this till his recording gear was stolen and was unable to replace it.
It was at this time the channel LazarBeam was created. I’m unable to find out what the origin of his name is as he used the name from a prior Runescape character and hasn’t said more than that.
This new channel would be gaming and the game of choice was Madden. He was a big football fan and enjoyed the sport so much. He was also known for his challenges and one of them was creating real life sports events in the game itself.
His favorite NFL team is the Patriots and Tom Bradey is his favorite player. He really enjoyed Madden but it was limiting his growth as it was a smaller game relative to all the games out. He started playing other games, Minecraft was one he played that would help him grow more. Then came another game some may know as Fortnite.
Fortnite Career Starts
In Fortnite LazarBeam was one of the first to start playing the game in the first season. He even did a really cool challenge which is I won’t stop playing till I get a win.
It ended up taking him 3 YouTube videos and 15 hours but he ended up getting the victory royale with only two eliminations both at the very end. He kept saying he is terrible at the game and adding his hilarious take on everything.
Fortnite made LazarBeam grow quickly and in April 2019 he hit 10 million subscribers and 3 billion video views. He was also classified as the third largest Fortnite streamer at the time. He was featured in YouTube rewind as the 8th most watched creator with 2 billion views in 2019.
He later would sign to live stream only on YouTube and leave Twitch. Right after he did this he went live and did a charity stream with other streamers and raised $100,000 Australian dollars for the wild fires that were going on.
He is also going to be in a new movie called the “Free Guy” who will also have other people like Ninja.
Fortnite Chapter 2
When Chapter 2 came out LazarBeam got bored because of the lack of content that Epic was producing and took a break to play some Minecraft and Roblox.
He then came back when the helicopter was entered into the game and has been back on it since then. His videos are hilarious and his challenges like “sitting on a flagpole till I get a win” you just can’t click away from.
He is so dedicated to Fortnite he even has the tatto “Code Lazar” on his forearm. That is his support a creator code so if people enter that in the shop he gets 5% of anything someone spends.
What Fortnite Skin does LazarBeam Use?
In Fortnite LazarBeam is in love with the Gingerbread skin and always wears it. It is like his brand and is in so many of his videos. The name of the skin LazarBeam uses in Fortnite is called Merry Marauder. LazarBeam also goes by the Fortnite in game name of LazarLazar.
Fortnite Event Record
In the new Fortnite event LazarBeam hit some crazy records while livestreaming on YouTube. He was able to have more than 900,000 people watching at a time which is a gigantic accomplishment.
There were so many people watching the agency event that YouTube and Twitch both started having issues because of the pure amount of people watching it.
LazarBeam is now at 15.2 million subscribers and no doubt will become the most viewed channel in Australia soon. Especially with all the COPA issues on YouTube that will have slowed the other channel down.
I do see him becoming one of the largest YouTubers on the platform and making us all smile and giggle as he does it.
