How to enter Fortnite’s Emote Royale Contest on TikTok

Epic Games are giving Fortnite fans another chance to get their very own emote in the game with the Emote Royale contest that is taking place on TikTok. So, here’s what you need to know about getting involved.

While fans have flocked to Fortnite to experience the popular and vibrant battle royale, many have tried to make their make with their own ideas for cosmetics, points of interest, and even weapons.

Some have seen their cosmetics in the game – with the Tender Defender – being the most notable, but there’s also a few emotes in there too. They came from the Boogie Down competition that Epic Games ran back in 2018 but now they’re re-doing it in the form of the Emote Royale on TikTok.

Unsurprisingly, if you want to enter the Fortnite x TikTok Emote Royale, you’re going to have to have a TikTok account. From there, you have to upload a short clip of your dance or funky moves with the #EmoteRoyaleContest tag attached before January 24 at 11:59 PM PST. 

These dances, though, must use the pre-selected Fortnite tracks from the Epic website, and come from someone who is at least 13 years old. So, if you’re a little younger, get someone else to enter for you. 

The winner, which will be decided by Epic – just like the Boogie Down contest – will get to see their emote in-game and receive a few other prizes as well. These include 25,000 V-Bucks and a Fortnite VIP giveaway package.

Of course, the Boogie Down winning emote is just called ‘Boogie Down’ in-game, but that’s not the only dance that came from that craze.

The iconic ‘Orange Justice’ dance also got added after a tonne of support from fans so, if you manage to go viral like Orange Shirt Kid, you could also find yourself in Fortnite – just without the other prizes. Best of luck!

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
