Epic Games recently announced that NFL star Justin Jefferson will be featured in Fortnite Season 6.
The publishers issued an official blog post ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft which mentions that Jefferson is joining Fortnite as the first NFL Icon Series bundle. The blog also highlights how players can celebrate the endzone dance immortalized by the Minnesota Vikings’ Jefferson.
The Fortnite Item Shop currently has Major Lazer's bundle, and all the other Icon Series emotes. With Jefferson in Fortnite, fans can now collect all the Icon Series cosmetics and complete the set before they are removed from the Item Shop.
The highlight of this recent announcement is undoubtedly Jefferson's first NFL Locker Bundle in Fortnite. Football fans can now enjoy playing Fortnite with their favorite standout rookie wide receiver's custom cosmetics.
Justin Jefferson Get Griddy emote, and Locker Bundle in Fortnite Season 6
Jefferson will be arriving in Fortnite Season 6 on April 28, 2021. Players will be able to purchase the Griddy emote from the Item Shop once it goes live. The emote is inspired by Allen Davies and has a long history with the NFL dances.
Jefferson is just one of the players who danced to the iconic track. In fact, several other NFL players like Tyreek Hill did the same and posted it on social media. The Griddy emote has become quite popular with college football players aspiring to make it big in the NFL.
Its timely arrival marks how Epic Games plans to hype up the Fortnite community before the 2021 NFL Draft.
Jefferson is also getting a unique Hit Man Locker Bundle, which makes him the first NFL player to have custom cosmetics in Fortnite. However, it is quite likely that the publishers plan to follow up with more collaborations from the NFL after the 2021 NFL Draft.
Justin Jefferson Hit Man Locker Bundle in Fortnite will consist of the following items:
- Outfit: Hit Man Outfit
- Back Bling: Hit Me!
- Emotes: Get Griddy & Signature Shuffle
- Pickaxe: Weathered Gold
- Wrap: Arcade Kid
Players can acquire all the unique Justin Jefferson NFL cosmetics from the Fortnite Item Shop after it reshuffles on April 28th.
