How to get the Among Us back bling and emote in Fortnite

Fortnite is known for featuring collaborations and crossovers with other brands, and the most recent addition is one that will no doubt excite many players. Epic Games has announced a partnership with InnerSloth to bring Among Us cosmetics to Fortnite, marking a first-time collaboration between the two companies. This comes after Fortnite implemented its infamous Impostors mode, which played almost exactly like Among Us.

Now that Among Us items have been added to Fortnite, you’ll likely want to dive in and get your hands on the latest cosmetics. But how exactly does it work? Here’s how to get the Among Us items in Fortnite.

The Among Us cosmetics are as follows:

  • Crewmate Back Bling: Available in red, blue, green, pink, orange, black, white, yellow, brown, and purple
  • Distraction Dance Emote: With dance moves from InnerSloth’s The Henry Stickmin Collection

It doesn’t appear like there will be any Among Us outfits, gliders, or harvesting tools, so when these cosmetics do come to the item shop, they likely won’t be as expensive as others.

How to get the Among Us Fortnite cosmetics

There are two ways to gain access to the Among Us cosmetics in Fortnite. The first way is to purchase Among Us from the Epic Games Store for $5, which will automatically give you access to the cosmetics in Fortnite at no additional cost. If you already own Among Us on the Epic Games Store prior to this deal going live, you’ll need to simply make any in-game Stars pack purchase (the least expensive is $2), and you’ll be rewarded with the Fortnite cosmetics as soon as you boot up the game. You have until June 9, 2023, to take advantage of this offer. Once you unlock the cosmetics using this method, they will be available across all platforms, as long as you utilize the same account.

The other method is to simply buy the cosmetics when they launch within Fortnite, though Epic Games has yet to announce when this will be. The company simply says the cosmetics will come to the “in-game shop at a later date.” We imagine they’ll be added to the game within the next couple of weeks.

Since there will only be two items available, the Crewmate Back Bling and the Distraction Dance Emote, the bundle will likely only cost around 1,000 V-bucks or so, though the exact price has yet to be revealed. You’ll want to have some V-bucks set aside for when the items are added to the game in the near future, which can be purchased using real money.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
best places to land in fortnite train

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite chapter 5, season 1, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite
Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot. they also typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.
Ruined Reels

Ruined Reels is located in the center of the chapter 5, season 1 map, making it an excellent choice for those looking for freedom in rotation. There's a decent selection of chests and weapon cases in these ruins, too, so you shouldn't have many issues getting kitted up before heading out. However, due to its location, this POI can be a bit crowded in some matches. As such, be prepared to land directly on a gun or chest to ensure you're ready for a fight.

Nanner Ringer emote in Fortnite

Chapter 5, season 1 of Fortnite is underway with a whole new map and tons of fresh content for players to dive into. While most of the new stuff can be earned or purchased in-game, there's one special emote Epic has created that will require you to put in a code on the Fortnite website, and that's the Nanner Ringer emote. There's a catch, though: Only the first 25 million players to redeem the code will actually be able to claim the emote. Afterward, the code will expire, meaning there's a high probability that you'll never get an opportunity to get this one again, so make sure you act fast if you'd like to add it to your emote collection.
