Emotes were first introduced in Fortnite: Battle Royale during Season 2's initial Chapter of the game. Emotes are in-game cosmetics that one can avail from completing Battle Pass challenges or purchasing from the Fortnite Item Shop using V-Bucks.
Emotes in Fortnite range from dances to taunts. Sometimes, they're even themed according to the in-game event or a global celebration. The game's initial emotes like Wave, The Worm, and Salute were relatively simple forms before the players were introduced to more interactive emotes like Planetary Vibe or Breakneck.
