Epic Games are offering players the chance to unlock the exclusive ‘Boogiedown’ emote and it does not cost a single V-Buck to do so.

The Epic rarity emote is completely free to own, and all players have to do to be awarded with it is simply enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on their Epic Games account.

2FA is a tool that drastically increases the security of accounts because it requires an additional code to be entered when logging and signing in.

Once its been enabled on an account, 2FA becomes activated the first time the user signs in after enabling the feature, using a new device, signing in for the first time in 30 or more days, or signing in after having recently cleared their browser cookies. 

In any of those circumstances, users will be required to enter the username and password as usual, but also will have to enter a two-factor passcode either via an authentication app or an email address authentication. 

Users that opt-in to use the 2FA feature will have the Boogiedown emote be granted to their account, as well as these multitude of items in the Save the World mode:

  • 50 Armory Slots
  • 10 Backpack Slots
  • 1 Legendary Troll Stash Llama

Aside from the free content, players will also be able to rest assured knowing that their account is very much protected against any potential hackers or scammers trying to gain access illegitimately. 

Enabling Two-Factor Authentication is a very simple process that can be done so in minutes. Users have to go to their Account Settings and click on the PASSWORD & SETTINGS tab to view their security settings.

At the bottom of the page, there is an area where the account owner can choose to either enable 2FA via the authentication app or email authentication as their two-factor method. 

Those who want to use an app, Epic recommend to use one of the following common authenticators that can be downloaded from a mobile device app store:

  • Google Authenticator
  • LastPass Authenticator
  • Microsoft Authenticator
  • Authy

If you haven’t yet enabled 2FA and would like to do so, you can get started with the process HERE


Fortnite Galactus skin leaked ahead of Season 4 finale event

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
