New Shanty For A Squad Emote
If you’ve watched the official video showcasing the new emote, you’ll probably think it sounds eerily similar to something you’ve heard before. That’s because it’s based on the famous TikTok shanty song that’s been making the rounds recently. The song was made famous by TikTok user Nathan Evans, who was officially credited in the Fortnite tweet.
When you use the new emote, your character will begin banging a drum and singing the famous shanty song. However, the song has been adapted to feature Fortnite related lyrics. The emote can also be used with your fellow squad mates! If activated at the same time, you and your squad will sync up and start singing the shanty together.
The new emote will cost 500 V-Bucks and is in the Item Shop today (March 4, 2021). The shanty for a squad emote is sure to be a popular one in Fortnite. So, Make sure to grab it before it goes away!
