Although many pros believe the competitive aspect of the game has died out, one can hardly question the insane popularity of the game.

Fortnite has almost always had a close link with TikTok, mostly because of the various dance styles. Content creators on TikTok have imitated a lot of emotes from the game, which have now come to be some pretty iconic dance moves.

Recently, the game added a new emote that shows off the sick dance moves by the TikTok personality ‘thexhan‘, featuring ‘Don’t Start Now‘ by the popstar Dua Lipa. The ‘Don’t Start Now’ emote is currently available in the item shop for 500 V-Bucks, and players cannot wait to try it out in the game.

Fortnite has had its rough patches. It ended up losing a huge portion of its player base following the entire Epic Games vs. Apple fiasco. Furthermore, a lot of pros and players have walked out on this beloved Battle Royale title because of the minimal changes Epic has made to the core gameplay and its peripherals.

Nevertheless, the game will most likely always retain a major part of its loyal fanbase. One of the major reasons for this is the fact that the game keeps itself relevant by aligning itself with every popular thing out there.

Currently, however, it will be unfair to say that Epic has done little to improve the gameplay experience in Fortnite. For example, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game include a 120fps mode that runs both the Battle Royale and Creative modes of the game. Epic even added a Performance Mode update on PC that lets players run the game on older PC specs than before.
