Data miners have leaked the challenge and reward that will be featured in the eight day of the 14 Days of Fortnite holiday event.

The Day 8 festivities, which will go live on December 26, will feature a very simple challenge for players to complete – thank the Bus Driver eight times. 

Thanking the Bus Driver, of course, means jumping out of the Battle Bus that carries players from the Spawn Island to the main Fortnite map at the beginning of each match.

This means that players will have to simply play eight matches and make sure that they jump out of the Battle Bus each time to complete the challenge. 

Players can then just quit out and load in again to speed up the process, or play out each of the matches until they get eliminated or secure the Victory Royale. However, in order to make sure that each match counts towards the challenge, players might want to land and get eliminated rather than quitting straight away. 

As for the reward, players who complete the challenge will receive an exclusive emote called ‘Take The Elf.’ The name is a play on the ‘Take the L’ emote and features that same dance, except the character pulls out a small elf instead of doing the L sign. 

A video of the emote has been leaked by @ShiinaBR, a popular source of Fortnite leaks and information on Twitter. 

This challenge and reward are expected to go live on December 26 at around 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET. Until then, this should all be treated as unofficial information which is liable to be changed at any time before then by Epic Games.

As for the seventh day of the 14 Days of Fortnite event, players have to use the Boogie Bomb and new Presents item at least a combined seven times, which then unlocks the Merry Munchkin pet.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
