Fortnite Black Panther Challenges Bring New Wakandan Salute Emote, Here's How To Unlock It
Though the Marvel Fortnite season has come and gone, it does not mean we cannot still enjoy some Marvel-themed content. Starting today, Fortnite players can “celebrate the legacy of Wakanda’s King with the Wakandan Salute Emote,” which will be free to all who complete the “Wakanda Forever Challenges.” Epic Games has also teased the possibility of a Black Panther skin being announced on a livestream later today at 6:45ET, but we will have to wait and see what happens.
Since Marvel’s Black Panther movie and the passing of actor Chadwick Boseman, players have been requesting skins, emotes, and other ways of commemorating the Wakandan king. Now, it seems players are starting to get what they asked for with the Wakandan Salute Emote. The only catch is that players have to complete some challenges to get the emote, but it is free after that. You can dive into the challenges listed below between today and January 12th at 7 PM ET.
- Play Matches(10)
- Outlast Opponents(500)
- Play Duo or Squad Matches With A Friend(5)
Hopefully, Epic Games will be using these skins and the hype surrounding them to memorialize the late Chadwick Boseman. Perhaps, if we are lucky, Epic Games may even give the proceeds to a colon cancer research or treatment charity. In any case, keep an eye on the Fortnite YouTube and HotHardware for updates on this and future Fortnite updates.
