As the Reality Tree’s energy envelops Logjam, grapple with this mystery while grappling with a new item:

Hooked on Swinging: Put on the Grapple Glove

The Screwballer’s not the only high-flying thrill this Season. Pick up a Grapple Glove and use it to swing through the air! To begin swinging, shoot its grappling hook at a hard surface like a cliff, prop, or building. Each successive swing gets faster until the third swing and beyond, when you’ll be at max speed. 

If you miss a shot and land on the ground, you’ll have a brief window of time to shoot the grappling hook and come back swinging. You'll have an even longer window if you slide out of a swing, so don't be afraid to combo some slides into your swinging action! But don’t worry if the window of time runs out: after a brief cooldown, the Grapple Glove will ready itself ba...

Show us your moves… or simply movements.

Fortnite’s Emote Royale contest is back, giving you the chance to inspire the creation of an in-game Emote! How does it work? Take a video of yourself performing an original dance or original motion, then share your submission on TikTok or Instagram Reels using the hashtags #EmoteRoyale2022 and #contest. The winning dance or motion will become an Emote in Fortnite, and the winning submitter will receive $2,500 USD plus the Emote!

That’s right, for this Emote Royale, your submission doesn’t have to be a dance. It can be a non-dance movement instead! The submission period for Emote Royale 2022 begins June 9, 2022, at 10 AM ET and will run until June 15, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET. All contest entries must be submitted during the submission period, and each participant is limited to one en...
