Epic Games have had a nightmare here. Someone on the social team leaked the Fortnite Crabby emote way ahead of schedule, and fans have been quick to re-upload the now-deleted tweet. If you’re curious about how to unlock this new incoming emote, its release date, and when it may end up in the item store, we’ve got you covered. Read our Fortnite Crabby emote guide for all of the information you will need.
Fortnite Crabby Emote | Release date
As you might have already guessed, there is no official Fortnite Crabby emote release date yet. The game’s social media team made a massive faux-pas by tweeting the animation of the incoming emote way ahead of time, and had to backtrack immediately on it. That didn’t stop leakers like ShiinaBR getting a hold of the tweet before it disappeared though.
As such, there is no confirmation on when it will find its way into the game. Judging by the fact that it was tweeted out by accident, however, we reckon it won’t be long before this emote is patched into the battle royale title. It would be very strange for it to be tweeted out if it isn’t coming for another few months. We could very well see its arrival before Season 9 is out.
Fortnite Crabby Emote | How to unlock
Without a definitive release date, we can’t say for sure how you can get the Fortnite Crabby emote. It’s almost certain that this will be available to buy in the in-game shop though, so it will be worth saving those V-Bucks now if you want to get your hands on it.
It could also be handed out as a reward for completing a potential upcoming event. With no word from Epic on what its next major LTM could be, we will only find out once the emote is released. Keep an eye out on this guide and we’ll update you with more information as it becomes available.
