11 Rarest Dance Emotes in Fortnite

Fortnite is a game where cosmetic items and the customization of characters is a big business and a big deal. Players ‘pimp’ out their characters with newly released character, weapon and harvesting tool skins. Your character is a digital reflection of you. Oh, and it’s really popular. Like $2.18B dollars popular.

Not only can you customize the look of your character but you can also determine which emotes (dances and actions) are equipped. What are emotes for? Basically, they let you taunt a player after you eliminate, perform a celebratory victory dance or even get ‘jiggy wit it’  at a live in-game concert performed by a world famous DJ. Sometimes emotes are used to complete a weekly challenge. There are many emotes to choose from in Fortnite but some of them are simply cooler than others.

So why are these the Top 10 Rarest Emotes in Fortnite? Well all of them are currently unobtainable. Others that have an uncommon rarity rating simply were only available for early Fortnite gamers.

  1. I have 3 of these, and I know for a fact 2 of them are not obtainable by Battle Pass means. This information is incorrect however, because I saw flapper just the other day! I believe he was just using past battle pass items to make the dances look older and cool.
