Emotes are some of the most sought after cosmetics in Fortnite. Over the years, they have gone from simple movements and actions to dynamic sequences and patterns. Some have even integrated music from popular artists from around the world.
In the game, emotes are used to share some laughs, creative interactions, strong moments, and even antagonize opponents or those defeated in battle. These are some of the most popular ones used by the community in 2022.
Note: The list has been created based on player feedback.
These emotes are currently the latest trend in Fortnite
10) Dance of distraction
Distraction Dance is relatively new and quite common in nature. Players simply stomp their feet on the ground and clap their hands as they emote. According to the information, the emote is based on the Henry Stickmin indie game series.
Although simple in nature, based on the emote’s stats, it’s evident that it has become extremely popular in recent days. It would seem that the Among Us collaboration got more traction than anticipated. The good news is that the emote can still be obtained by purchasing a Star Pack from the Epic Games store.
9) Imperial March
It’s hard to imagine how walking a certain way can result in the creation of a popular emoticon. And yet it has happened. Part of the current season’s Battle Pass, the Imperial March emote has arguably become the most used walking emote of all time.
It is part of the Star Wars series and can be obtained for 7 Battle Stars on page 10 of the current Battle Pass. Nothing spells fear and awe better than donning the Darth Vader suit and getting emotional in the face of a downed opponent.
8) Orange Justice
Seeing Orange Justice ranked so high despite his age is quite surprising. The emote was first introduced to Fortnite in Chapter 1 Season 4. It is a Battle Pass exclusive item that can be unlocked at level 26.
While the emote itself is entertaining, its origin story is somewhat depressing. To this day, there is a debate going on somewhere on the internet as people try to come to a conclusion as to who the emoticon was based on. The contenders are Roy Purdy and “Orange Shirt Kid.”
7) dental floss
The word “floss” used to be associated with dental hygiene, but nowadays it’s synonymous with two things: ‘The Backpack Kid’ and the dance move in Fortnite. Despite being added to the game in Chapter 1 Season 2, the emote has retained its popularity.
Sadly, it was a Battle Pass exclusive that was available to players who managed to hit level 49. Suffice to say, getting the emote right now is next to impossible. However, thanks to its popularity, players will be able to see this emote in-game for years to come.
Most of the emotes in Fortnite range from 500 to 800 V-Bucks. Depending on their rarity, some are even cheaper. They generally don’t break the bank or force players to spend too much. However, Scenario is an exception to this rule.
This emote was introduced to the game in Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 8 and could only be obtained by purchasing a Samsung Galaxy 10 series mobile. Considering the astronomical cost and limited availability, it is surprising to see this emote ranking so high. on the list.
5) Take the L
Take The L was an exclusive emote for Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 3. It was obtained by unlocking level 31 of the Battle Pass. To date, no other emoticon is as antagonistic as this one.
Players use it liberally after taking out a player or while watching them try to crawl to safety. Even though it’s a silly dance with the character creating an L-shape with their finger on their forehead, it’s likely to remain popular for many more chapters in the game.
4) Vibrating vibration
Vibrant Vibin’ is a Twitch Drop from Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 that was available at the start of the new season. It was free to obtain when it was released as a promotion, but it will likely be added to the Item Shop over time.
The emote itself is nothing out of the ordinary, but it does feature some smooth dance moves, loud music, and plenty of RGB disco lights. While it’s popular right now, it’s unlikely to hold onto a top ten list spot for long.
3) best companions
Best Mates was added to the game as an exclusive Battle Pass in Chapter 1 Season 3. It could be obtained by unlocking it at level 63. In the past, the emote was popular due to its silly dance. However, after the 11.40 Fortnite update, things changed for the better.
After the update, the emote went from just dancing and also allowed players to traverse the landscape. OG Loopers can be seen displaying this feature quite frequently in the game.
2) It’s Finished
It Is Finished is an emote that can be obtained on page six of the current Battle Pass. It costs seven Battle Stars to unlock and has slowly started to increase in popularity. Although there isn’t much in terms of flashiness, the emote itself feels good.
The simple task of plunging a sword into the ground and kneeling in front of it is enough to get the community going. When used with certain gentleman outfits, this emote will have a completely different feel.
Fresh really is an “OG” emote like no other. Introduced in Fortnite Chapter 1 Season 2, the emote cost 800 V-Bucks when it was listed in the Item Shop. Based on the Carlton Dance The prince of Bel Air by actor Alfonso Ribeiro, remains popular to this day.
Unfortunately, the emote will never appear in the Item Shop due to a lawsuit filed against Epic Games. This is unfortunate as many players will miss out. However, on the other hand, this makes the emote one of the rarest in the game.
