Another interesting detail is Bugha’s in-game dance emote. During their latest collaboration, the former World Cup champion told Ninja and Grefg that he actually did the dance after winning the World Cup. He had promised his fans to do so 5-6 weeks prior to the tournament.

The star-studded Trio joyfully performed Bugha’s dance emote after defeating another team and enjoyed the heartwarming story behind it. Both Ninja and Grefg heavily praised the emote.

Bugha is a master of his own game mode called Late Game

Bugha’s Late Game is the latest competitive mode in Fortnite. Trios start off in the third zone, with nine different options of preset loadouts which include weapons and set materials. Accordingly, the action begins as soon as the teams land. As per Bugha, the Late Game mode tries to replicate the conditions of the third zone of an actual World Cup game.

It comes as no surprise that Bugha, Ninja, and Grefg absolutely demolished their opponents while playing Late Game. From precise aim to fast building/editing, the trio seemed perfect in every aspect of Fortnite.
