Reading Time: 2 minutes

A Gangnam Fortnite emote is coming to the item shop soon… Oppan Gangnam Style!

Epic Games have collaborated with a number of artists, streamers, and companies to bring exclusive Fortnite skins to the game. We’ve had Marvel and DC skins and we’ve seen a number of TikTok dances make their way into the world of Fortnite as an emote.

We’ve also had other emotes make their way into the game, but have resulted in Epic Games facing lawsuits. The “Phone It In”, the “Running Man” and just two of the emotes that have been contested in court.

However, Epic Games have won the lawsuits brought forward and still releasing new, trendy Fortnite emotes. However, some of their cosmetics have been released long after a trend has ended including for today’s new Fortnite emote, Gangnam Style.

Around an hour ago, the Fortnite Korea Twitter page posted a clip of Fortnite characters doing the Gangnam style emote on top of the largest building at Salty Towers. There was no information regarding whether this would be only for players in Korea or for everyone.

Thirty minutes later, data-miners posted that the Gangnam Style Fortnite emote was had been decrypted and posted the featured image which we’ve included below.

There’s no information as to when the Fortnite Gangnam Style emote will be available to purchase, but due to the fact the emote has been decrypted just under two hours before the Fortnite Item Shop resets, we’re going to take a stab in the dark and say it’ll be available to purchase in the item shop for the 28th / 29th January 2021.

As with all leaks, there’s no information regarding how much the emote will cost, but we’d assume it would be either 500 or 800 V-Bucks. Let us know in the comments section if you’ll be purchasing the Gangnam style emote.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Epic Games have announced some changes coming to the Fortnite Superhero skins in the next update.

The Boundless set in Fortnite contains a number of superhero cosmetics that are highly customizable. They were first released on September 11th, 2020 and last seen on December 7th.

In the next Fortnite update, Epic Games will be making some minor adjustments to the Fortnite superhero skins due to an issue with the skins being considered pay-to-win. The issue was first identified a few weeks back when players took to Reddit to complain about the superhero skins.

With the customizable options for the skins allowing players to use a black/black and white/white color combination as their primary and secondary colors, players began realizing it provided them with an advantage.

With the black/black combination, players can sit in the corner of a dark room and it would be very hard to opponents to spot you. Here’s an example of how difficult it is to spot a player using the above color combination:

The next Fortnite update is v15.30 and it’s currently on the staging servers being tested. It should release sometime next week, likely on Wednesday if Epic’s season 5 update schedule is anything to go by.

In the update, Epic Games will address the above pay-to-win issue with the superhero skins in Fortnite. In a statement from Epic Games, they stated it’s been brought to their attention that the skins in the Boundless set are comprising the competitive integrity of matches.

They mentioned they’re planning to make “minor cosmetic adjustments” along with adjustments to the material and players no longer being able to have a white/white or black/black primary and secondary color combinations.

Players are entitled to a free refund for the Fortnite superhero skins within thirty days of your first login after the v15.30 Fortnite update is released. This will not cause players to lose a refund token. The statement ended with Epic stated that they’ve made some tweaks to interior lighting in the game to compliment these upcoming skin changes.
