Fortnite‘s Laugh It Up emote is pretty infamous, since there’s nothing more infuriating than seeing it sarcastically deployed by an opponent when you get killed. It’s also the most-used emote in the game, according to a massive data collection effort covering thousands of in-game replays captured during the 17.10 patch.
Laugh It Up shows up in 15.9966% of the tracked matches, according to dataminer Lucas7yoshi’s report. That’s just ahead of Dance Moves at 15.9286%. The fact that these two emotes are so close in total usage is especially astounding when you consider that Laugh It Up costs Fortnite V-bucks, while Dance Moves is free, default emote.
There’s loads of other interesting data in the full breakdown. Notably, 8.9739% of players are using the free, default skins. The most popular paid Fortnite skin is Sunny, from the current battle pass. (My own favourite is Calamity, down at the 0.2% range. Yes, I feel very nice and special, thank you.)
