How to get the Among Us Back Bling and Emote in Fortnite

Get ready to sus out the competition.

Fortnite is no stranger to crossovers. The game has had a ton of collaborations over the years with heavy-hitting properties like Star Wars, God of War, and various Marvel/DC franchises. Now, the hit online game is collaborating with another big title: The viral indie hit, Among Us.

Innersloth and Epic announced the crossover, which includes both a back bling modeled after a crewmate from Among Us and the “Distraction Dance” emote, on June 9. The Among Us developer also stated that players would have until June 9, 2023 — a whole year from the collaboration’s announcement — to earn the cosmetics associated with the collaboration. Don’t expect to get these cosmetics for free, however.

How to unlock the Among Us cosmetics in Fortnite

The Among Us cosmetics can be earned by purchasing either a copy of Among Us or a Stars pack (Among Us’ in-game currency) via the Epic Games Store. If you purchase Among Us or a pack of Stars through another digital marketplace, such as the Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo stores, you will not unlock the Fortnite cosmetics. Additionally, if you already own Among Us on the Epic Games Store, you will not retroactively earn the cosmetics; you’ll have to purchase a bundle of Stars to do that.

Luckily, both Among Us and its Star bundles are pretty cheap. The game only costs $4.99, while the cheapest Star bundle is $1.99 for 20 Stars.

Make sure the EGS account you’re purchasing Among Us on is the same one you use to play Fortnite. Once you buy the game/Stars, simply log into Fortnite on any console, and the cosmetics should be in your locker.

Purchasing them in the item shop

If you’re not looking to spend money on Among Us or its in-game currency, you can always hit up the item shop, where you can buy the Among Us bundle for 600 V-Bucks. While these cosmetics weren’t initially available in the item shop when the collaboration started, Epic added them to the item shop on June 17.

It’s unknown when the Among Us bundle will leave the item shop, but once it’s gone, it might be a while before it returns. If you’re intrigued by these cosmetics, we recommend you purchase them while they’re still available.
