Epic writes in its notes, “Five dance floors will appear on the map whenever the storm is not moving. Emoting on a dance floor when no enemies are present will raise a disco ball in the center of the floor, and capture it for your team. The more friendly players dancing on a floor, the faster it will be captured. Once a floor is captured, it will begin filling the team s dance bar on the HUD, until either an enemy stands on it or the current storm timer ends and the storm begins to move. The first team to fill their dance bar to 100% will win the match.” Also Read - Unreal Engine 5 Early Access now live: What's new and everything you need to know

The Quad Launcher is a rocket launcher that is much more efficient than the other one and is a legendary weapon. It will fire four rockets in quick succession without having to reload after each shot.

Summary

It’s time for the ultimate dance-off. Dance Floors have spawned around the Battle Royale island. Take them over by clearing out any enemies and then dancing to raise a disco ball up from the floor.
