Fortnite’s Item Shop has been once again updated to include a new MrBeast collection for a limited time. It features the return of the MrBeast Bundle, which first featured in the Battle Royale as part of Chapter 4 Season 1, on December 15, 2022.

However, also included in the YouTuber’s collab is the addition of the Zany Emote, which is a reference to the viral Fake MrBeast meme. The meme spawned in 2022 from a parody rap battle video by Freshy Kanal, which saw a comedian mimicking MrBeast and his stereotypical YouTube persona from his videos.

The Zany Emote is seen as a direct reference by Epic Games towards this. Similarities have been drawn when performing the Emote, which reflects MrBeast’s hand movements and facial expressions.

You can purchase the Zany Emote for yourself in Fortnite’s Item Shop for just 500 V-Bucks within the Item Shop. But, before you head over to the in-game shop, make sure you’ve stacked up on V-Bucks.
