Fortnite The Crank Emote: See The Crank Emote Here and Is It Real?

With so many new content updates bringing with them awesome emotes, it’s no surprise that the Fortnite The Crank emote is making the rounds as one of the most popular emotes yet for the game. We have the entire emote for you to watch and enjoy below, as well as some additional information on it.

Fortnite The Crank emote is one that is both hilarious and oddly expressive. It fits the quirky, goofy nature of the game, flippin’ the bird off at any enemies (or teammates) that are annoying you. You can also use it to simply taunt dead players or for the pure joy of flipping someone off. But, wait, is it actually real?

Fortnite The Crank Emote: See The Crank Emote Here and Is It Real?

Check out the Fortnite The Crank emote above from NxstyDZN and see it for yourself. It is a wonderfully hilarious emote, but it does raise some interesting questions if you look a little closer. The Crank emote is certainly one that many players would want to have in their arsenal, but can you actually get it? Let’s find out.

The short answer is the Fortnite The Crank emote is a total dud. Perhaps Epic Games will officially add a similar emote later on, but this one is totally fake as of right now. It’s an elaborate fake, but a fake nonetheless. How do we know that? Let’s take a closer look.

First and foremost, the character’s face is a little too impressively animated compared to other characters in the game. However, that isn’t enough to cement that the Fortnite The Crank emote isn’t real. Instead, we can take a look at some other details in the video like how many Vbucks the player has. Having exactly 1337 Vbucks is impossible, so for now, Fortnite The Crank is just a fake.
