Metallica Gets New ‘Fortnite’ Emote For “Master of Puppets”

After seeing a resurgence of their 1986 classic “Master of Puppets” thanks to Stranger Things, Metallica is going the way of several musicians: by being included in Fortnite. And you’ll never guess what emote is making the jump.

The official Fortnite Twitter account announced last night that it has added a new emote based on the Metallica thrasher, which mimics Joseph Quinn‘s Eddie Munson belting out the song in Stranger Things. It’s only fitting, seeing as Stranger Things itself made the jump to Fortnite with a set of cosmetics back in 2019.

The emote is currently available in Fortnite‘s item shops for 500 v-bucks. According to its description, it’s a synced emote. Meaning, that more than one player can perform the emote in sync. For this particular emote, up to four people can play different instruments, including drums, bass guitar, and two guitars (see where this is going?). If it’s used in-game, the character will pull out an instrument and perform “Master of Puppets”.

Meanwhile, for the non-Fortnite crowd, Metallica surprised everyone a few weeks back with the release of a new single, “Lux Æterna”, as well as announcing their eleventh studio album in 72 Seasons. The new album is due out April 14, 2023.
