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!


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
