Dancing and using Emotes in Fortnite: Battle Royale

Dancing in Fortnite Battle Royale is a great way to get in some BM, and let your enemy know that you had a good fight. The actual movement in Fortnite isn’t referred to as a Dance, instead it’s an Emote. However most emotes in the game right now just happen to be dances.

New dances & emotes can be unlocked from the Item Shop for V-Bucks, the official currency for Fortnite. New emotes will tend to cost around 800 V-Bucks on average. However some drop much lower than this, with Rock Paper Scissors and Jubilation costing just 200 VBucks.

Any unlocked emotes can be equipped by going to your Locker, selecting emotes and choosing to equip them into the slots. You can have 6 emotes equipped at once onto the default emote wheel. Although in a recent update, Epic Games made it so that you can use every emote possible by scrolling through the mote wheel.

You can customise your controls within Fortnite to your liking. As well as emotes and dances, you can also use the new communication wheel. It’s a great way to signal to team mates that you require bandages, ammunition or that you’ve spotted an enemy.

How to use your emotes in Fortnite

If you’re a PC user, the dance emote can be performed by pressing B¬†on your keyboard by default to open the emote wheel. It’s also possible to type /dance into the chat. You can equip up to 6 emotes at a time, so each emote will have it’s own number depending on where you have equipped it on Fortnite. You can change the controls in Fortnite Battle Royale if you want to put emote onto a more accessible key. With the emote wheel open, use scroll wheel to switch through the wheel.

Now then, for console users, the default key for performing emotes is by pressing the down button on the D-Pad. It is the same key whether you are on PS4 or Xbox One. However it may vary depending on your configuration. You can check for yourself in the settings menu, and change the control if you wish.
