A new Fortnite leak from well known data miner ‘Lucas7yoshi’ has uncovered another TikTok dance coming to Epic Games’ title as an emote in the ongoing Season 4. 

Fortnite has become well known for its incredible popular culture crossovers, regularly incorporating the largest aspects of movies, TV, and pop culture into its world.

While crossovers have previously focused on franchises like the Avengers or the heroes of Star Wars, we have also seen increasing numbers of TikTok dances make their way into Epic’s building battle royale.

The Beijing-based social media app has been the center of controversy as the US Government looks set to ban it, but its dance/choreography videos still influence millions of people across the world.

The threat to TikTok’s US future hasn’t stopped Epic from including its dances in-game.

Leaker ‘Lucas7yoshi‘ is one of the most well known and reputable data miners in the Fortnite scene, regularly leaking skins, item shop collections and more before they are released in-game.

In a September 18 Reddit post, he shared the first look at a decrypted ‘Rollie’ emote, which takes clear inspiration from the TikTok dance of the same name. As has been the trend on TikTok, it is performed to ‘Rolex’, by Ayo & Teo.

It adds the colorful flare we are used to seeing from Fortnite, and will perfectly slot into the game’s fun, light-hearted vibes.

Unfortunately, Lucas wasn’t clear when the emote will drop in-game, but emotes are rarely added to game files a long time before their implementation.

It seems most likely, then, that we’ll see it added before the end of September at the very latest.

It’s certainly not as anticipated as some of the crossovers and skins we’ve seen added, but TikTok and Fortnite fans can look forward to its implementation.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
