Boogie Down Is a New Free Fortnite Skin, but Only for Those Who Enable Two-Factor Authentication

Epic is trying to make it harder for scammers while giving players a neat gift.

Fortnite Battle Royale features microtransactions in the form of V-Bucks, which will let you purchase new cosmetic items like skins and harvesting tools for your characters. Unfortunately, there are plenty of scams out there looking to take advantage of unaware players, hacking into their Epic accounts while promising free V-Bucks.

The only way to stop hackers is by enabling two-factor authentication on your Epic account, which alerts you whenever there's a new sign in to your Epic account from an unknown device. Epic has actually been pushing players to enable two-factor authentication on their Epic accounts for a while now, through loading screen messages. But now, you'll actually earn a special emote for your character if you enable two-factor authentication.

All you need to do to activate two-factor authentication is sign into your Epic account, then click 'security and passcodes', and then click 'enable email authentication'. Now, input the code that's been sent to your email address, and you'll have successfully earned yourself the new Boogie Down emote.

As for other areas of Fortnite Battle Royale, the Week 7 Challenges are now in full swing. If you need a helping hand in completing all the tasks for this week, head over to our Fortnite Week 7 Challenges guide.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
