The variety of fun emotes in Fortnite was a drawing factor for many new players. The ability to hit a backflip or bring an imaginary llama pogo stick out in the middle of an intense battle royale is something unique to Epic’s battle royale. However, the community has managed to turn these fun dances into a form of disrespect.

You may have often seen the likes of Ninja rage at the fact that opponents do a little victory dance after killing him.

Pickaxe kill

You know your opponent is far better than you if they deliver the final blow with a pickaxe. This was made popular in the game by former Fortnite pro, Tfue, in his YouTube videos. Ever since, the gesture has remained a way of players asserting their dominance over others.

What could be more toxic than watching a creator’s stream for hours just so you have the chance of getting in their game and killing them before they can get a weapon? Nothing.

Fortnite has been plagued with stream-sniping since its inception, with creators like Ninja and SypherPK bearing the brunt of it. Furthermore, following someone and catching them off guard is not a skill but cowardice.

While every lobby will contain at least one of these ‘toxic’ players, Fortnite’s fanbase continues to be loyal. With Chapter 2 Season 6 on the horizon, we have another season to see what creative ways players can find to disrespect each other. Have you ever been the ‘toxic’ one in a game of Fortnite?
