Fortnite’s Season 4 brought a host of Marvel characters to the battle royale. The battle pass includes heroes like Iron Man, Wolverine, and Dr. Doom–complete with their own special emotes. Dr. Doom’s emote has him sit on a giant throne, but players can only use it right after a victory royale. They can’t use it at any other time and they aren’t happy about that restriction.
“At the very least they could make it usable at any time in modes that don’t have victory royales available,” said Redditor Unknown Submarine. The emote isn’t available in other modes like Creative, Battle Lab, or the various limit-time modes.
The emote is insignificant, but players have been complaining about it since Season 4 started over two months ago. It’s one of several skin-specific emotes that need to be unlocked through special challenges. Iron Man has one where he puts on his suit of armor that can be used at anytime.
The season has a number of cosmetics with special restrictions. Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, can only be held by “worthy” characters like Thor and Captain America. It turns into a standard pickaxe in the hands of other characters.
“It makes getting wins with Dr. Doom more satisfying,” said Redditor StompaBB, adding that the Dr. Doom emote is working as intended. It’s not likely that Epic Games will make any changes to the emote as several other complaints that players have, including ones about other minor cosmetic issues, have gone unaddressed.
Fortnite’s Marvel madness will continue later this week when Venom comes to the battle royale as part of a Marvel Knockout tournament. Galactus, Season 4’s big baddie, is also almost here. A season-ending event is only a couple of weeks away and players are trying to figure out what will happen.
