A new Fortnite setting will let players avoid seeing ‘confrontational emotes’

Epic Games has announced a new Fortnite setting that will let players toggle visibility on four emotes that “can sometimes feel a bit overly confrontational”.

The new ‘See Confrontational Emotes’ setting will be introduced on Tuesday as part of Fortnite’s v29.30 update.

It will apply to four emotes: Laugh It Up, Take the L, Whipcrack and Make It Plantain.

“Players who choose this will see a player using the Emote standing still, with no Emote sound,” Epic said.

“The new setting can be found under ‘Social Privacy’ and will default to only show these Emotes from friends in your party. You can change this setting any time, so you can see these Emotes from ANY player or not at all.”
