Emotes are equally friendly and toxic elements of any multiplayer game, especially Fortnite. Emotes are add-ons to the cosmetics that players possess. Sometimes these emotes are rare. Players can use the emote in front of their enemies to show off their prized possession. Considering a few emotes require hefty grind, using them can gain the respect of the lobby.
Fortnite has some of the best emotes that players can use to show off after a ‘Victory Royale’ or mock an enemy after killing them with the pickaxe.
Fortnite emotes have grown popular with time. Initially, the emotes came with original dances and music. However, that has changed since Fortnite got into a zone of collaboration. Trendy songs usually end up in Fortnite’s Item Shop with their respective dance trends.
This article dives into some of the best emotes in Fortnite.
