What Happened? In a recent update of Fortnite, Epic Games removed, or encrypted files related to the Hula Emote, Sir Beurre Backbbling, and Baguette Bat Pickaxe emotes or pickaxe. This led to speculation on their future use and why these items had to go away abruptly. For instance, Hula Emotes first debuted during Chapter 1, Season 8, and quickly gained popularity, often used when celebrating victories or just for fun by many players.
Sir Beurre Backbling
First released in Chapter 2, Season 3, the Sir Beurre Backbling has quickly become one of the most desired cosmetic items among players who appreciate the French aesthetic. Popular among French aesthetic enthusiasts and used in certain cosmetic sets to complete them.
The Baguette Bat Pickaxe was first unveiled in Chapter 2, Season 5. This pickaxe has a blade that looks like a baguette, making it popular with players who appreciate French aesthetics as it completes certain cosmetic sets.

Why Did Epic Games Remove These Items?
Unfortunately, Epic Games’ reasoning behind their removal or encryption remains unknown, although several possible explanations could apply here.
Plans call for new versions of these items, such as creating a Hula Emote featuring different dancing moves or Sir Beurre back bling featuring another food item shaped as its design.
Plans have been underway to completely delete certain items from the game due to no longer being popular amongst players or creating technical difficulties.
Epic Games may make room for new content by clearing away older items to accommodate what will likely become increasingly available.
What Does This Mean for Players in Epic Games?
Players have expressed surprise and concern over Epic Games’ silence regarding these items being removed or encrypted and what this may portend for their future use in-game. Unfortunately, no official statement has yet been provided concerning them, so their future remains ambiguous.
As they’ve already unlocked them, players may continue using these items until their eventual removal from the game entirely.
What Do You Think?
What are your opinions regarding Epic Games’ decision to remove and encrypt certain items within their game? Do they intend to offer new versions, or are they planning to remove these assets from play completely?

These items could result in various possible outcomes.
These could either be removed completely – something which would surely displease players who use these items regularly – or replaced with new versions; either of these options could provide new content to players looking for fresh experiences while it would still be regrettable to lose these beloved objects entirely.
They could return in the future; this possibility remains viable, although no firm timeline is for when or if this will occur.
Only time can tell where these items stand in future availability; players having unlocked items can continue using them if available, though knowing the possibility of removing them from play can provide perspective on any decision to remove an item altogether from future iterations of this game.
