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:

  • 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

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
