Epic Games added a stonks-themed skin called Diamond Hanz in celebration of April Fool's Day. The skin is in honor of the WallStreetBets subreddit and its part of the To the Moon set.

While most companies would simply stop with the design, Epic Games made this an actual skin in the game. If you're unaware of this memorable moment in history. Members of a subreddit WallStreetBets all bought stock of Gamestop to drive up the price. Phrases like "To the Moon" were coined and it will last in history.

April Fool's Day is notorious for false gaming announcements and rumors. In Epic Games' case, the developer decided to have some fun with one of the most talked about stories of the year so far. The trailer showcasing the skin has the Stonks skin dancing with a golden llama cowbell.

It didn't just stop at the skin, as the To The Moon set also has a back bling called Gains which is simply an arrow pointing up. The set is worth 1,200 V-Bucks.
