While it may have been last season of Fortnite: Battle Royale that was Marvel-themed, that doesn’t mean the game’s connections to the franchise have ended. A small new set of challenges, dubbed Wakanda Forever, have been introduced to the game for the next three weeks, and completing them will earn you the Wakandan Salute emote–and the long-awaited Black Panther skin may finally be approaching its release.
The Wakanda Forever challenges are available for free, and there are only three total you’ll need to complete. Fortunately, this just involves playing the game–you won’t need to hunt down any unmarked locations or do anything unnatural. However, one of the three challenges is mislabeled: Despite saying you only need to play five Duo or Squad matches, you actually have to do this challenge with a friend, Epic clarified on Twitter; it’s working to update the in-game text now. Each of the three challenges has a corresponding XP reward, and once you finish all three, you’ll unlock the emote, which was popularized by 2018’s Black Panther movie. You just have to do all of this by January 12 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET.
Wakanda Forever Challenges
- Play Matches (10) — 10k XP
- Outlast opponents (500) — 20k XP
- Play Duo or Squad matches with a friend (5) — 20k XP
Coinciding with this, Epic’s ongoing Fortography event, where players submit their best Fortnite screenshots, will focus on the new emote. You can submit yours by tweeting with the #Fortography hashtag.
