Rate this post

How to dance on Fortnite PC: During the last game in Fortnite , you have seen many players give life to real virtual flash mobs, going wild with crazy dances. You would like to participate in these events too, but unfortunately you are a beginner with this game and you still don’t know all the commands well.

How do you say? This is how things are and would you like a hand to find out  how to dance on Fortnite for PC ? Don’t worry, you just happened on the right tutorial and at the right time, as I’m going to explain everything to you in detail. In the course of the following chapters, in fact, I will explain in detail how to add the emotes with the dances to the Fortnite Locker and also how to identify the key that allows you to dance in the game. In addition, I will explain what to do to get new dances on Fortnite, as these particular emotes can be obtained in game through the use of V-Bucks, the virtual currency of Fortnite. But let’s go in order and don’t immediately go through the stages.

Now that you understand what the topics I’m going to talk about, are you ready to start? Are you already sitting comfortably in front of your computer? Very well! At this point, I suggest you take a few minutes of free time and carefully read the next few lines, in order to succeed in your intent. I wish you a good read and, above all, have fun!

Add Emote to the cabinet

The first thing you need to do if you want to find out which key to press to dance on Fortnite from PC is to start the game, so that you can add Emotes to the Locker , i.e. the section dedicated to personalizing your virtual avatar.

To do this, select the Epic Game Launcher icon that you find on the Windows desktop or in the MacOS Launchpad and, once logged in to your account, press the Start button that you find in the Fortnite video game .

Once the game has started, select the game mode of your interest by clicking on it (for example, click on Royal Battle ), then press the Esc button  , in order to display the Lobby screen .

Now, go to the Locker section , to add the Emotes of the dance to the shortcuts that you will subsequently assign, as I will explain in the next chapter .

To do this, click on the Locker menu item located in the top bar, then, in correspondence with the Emote section , press the symbol (+) and select the Emotes of the dance you have unlocked by clicking on them. Then confirm the addition by clicking on Save and exit .

You can add up to 6 Emotes to their “wheel”; this, as I will illustrate in one of the next chapters , can be activated in the game, by pressing the pre-assigned key or the one you have customized.

Check the key assignment

Once you have added the Emotes of the dance to the Locker , go to the Settings menu to view the controls section and find out which key to press to dance on Fortnite (a key that, as we will see shortly, you can also change at your convenience) .

To proceed, click on the menu symbol ( )  located in the upper right corner, then, in the relative drop-down menu that you see on the screen, click on the gear symbol, to display the Settings section . Now, press on the arrow symbol located at the top, to see the Input tab . This is the section relating to the list of all the game controls and the relative predefined keys that have been assigned.

As you can see, the key used to dance on Fortnite is called Emote ; by default this is assigned to key (B) . However, if you intend to change this automatic assignment, click on the wording (B) and then press on the keyboard the key you want to set as a command for the dance.

In the screen dedicated to the assignment of the keys, also refer to the item Slot Emote cabinet and also to the one called Repeat the last Emote . The first is used to activate one of the 6 Emotes previously assigned in the cabinet, while the second is used to quickly repeat the last Emote performed. These keys are not assigned by default (as you can see there is the wording Not assigned ). Then click on it to assign a key to your liking.

If, on the other hand, you have connected a controller to the computer, click on the controller symbol located in the tab at the top: in this way, you can see which is the relevant button dedicated to dancing. In this case you have to press the down arrow key .

How do you say? Would you like to play Fortnite with a controller, but don’t know how to connect it to the computer? So I suggest you read the procedure that I have provided you with in some of my guides dedicated to this topic, in which I explained how to connect the pad of PS3,  PS4Xbox 360  or that of  Xbox One to the computer  .

Finally, if you have changed the default assignments for Fortnite commands that concern the use of the keyboard (the controller commands cannot be reset), press the Esc button , so as to return to the main menu and, in the screen you see, click on Save , to confirm the changes you have made.

Dancing on Fortnite for PC

Now that you have identified the command needed to dance on Fortnite for PC, you can start a new game through the Lobby screen , by pressing the Play button you see in the lower right corner.

Once the game has started, to dance on Fortnite , you just have to press the key (B) and that is the default key, or the one you previously assigned.

By pressing the button in question, as you can see, a virtual wheel will open through which you can select, by clicking on it, the dance you want your character to perform or the Emote with which you want to express yourself.

If you have also assigned commands for the Locker Emote Slots and to repeat the last Emote , you can press them to make your character dance with one of the Emotes previously assigned in the Locker .

Get new dances on Fortnite

Fortnite is a free-to-play game but it gives you the opportunity to purchase items related to the aesthetics of the characters. These are available in rotation in the Object Shop section and can be purchased through V-Bucks, virtual currency obtainable with real money or unlockable directly in the game, following the completion of certain objectives.

If you have already purchased or obtained sufficient V-Bucks, you can buy the Emotes available in the Object Shop by clicking on the object to be purchased and pressing the purchase button. Alternatively, if you have the Season Pass , you may get Emotes  as a reward by leveling up.

If, however, you do not have enough V-Bucks to purchase the emote of your interest, you must purchase this game coin by pressing the symbol (+) at the top right of the Fortnite home screen, in order to view the packages for the purchase of the same (prices start from € 4.99).

In this regard, in case you want to get the V-Bucks needed to unlock particular Emotes , I highly recommend you read my guide on how to get V-Bucks in which I have provided you with various tips and suggestions on how to obtain this virtual currency.
