How to unlock the Wakanda Forever emote for free in Fortnite

Black Panther is arriving in Fortnite Season 5, and you can embrace the power of the Wakandan king with a brand new emote. The Wakanda Forever emote can be unlocked for free by completing challenges.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 reached its memorable conclusion with the battle against Galactus. Season 5 said goodbye to superheroes, and Epic Games introduced content from other franchises like The Mandalorian, Halo, God Of War, and The Walking Dead.

Now it seems that Epic Games may be bringing back the superheroes, as leakers have discovered signs of more Marvel content coming soon. The new additions will be Black Panther, Taskmaster, and Captain Marvel. This skin pack will become available in the Item Shop on December 21.

Along with the skins, there’s also a new ‘Wakanda Forever’ emote that serves as a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. Here’s how you can unlock it.

To unlock the emote, you’ll need to complete some challenges. These will be available from today to January 12, so be sure to tackle them while you still have time.

There are three of these challenges available:

  • Play matches (10)
  • Outlast Opponents (500)
  • Play Duo or Squad matches (5)

You can complete all of these easily just by playing the game, and each successful completion will award you with XP. Your best chance of getting them done quickly is to land in less crowded places then lay low as most of your opponents pick each other off.

After you’ve completed all 3 challenges, you’ll earn some XP and the Wakanda Forever emote. This is a touching tribute and serves as the perfect thing to start the holiday.

The “Marvel: Royalty & Warriors Pack” is proving to be quite exciting. A leak has suggested that we’ll also see a new Marvel Portal POI along with Black Panther and Captain Marvel skins.

It’s rumored that this might mean the return of Galactus, or the arrival or some other cosmic threat. Until Epic Games give us some answers, this is pure speculation. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we learn more.
