Epic Games acknowledged that there is an issue with awarding of the Take The Elf Emote and that it will be awarded by early 2019. The delay in awarding caused some players to complain about it.
We have identified an issue with the Take the Elf emote not being granted to players after completing the Day 8 challenge. We will grant this reward to all players that earned it early next year.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) December 26, 2018

Assault Rifles are effective across all ranges but are best used at mid-range. They are also beginner friendly and easy to use.
SMGs are most effective at close range and effective at shredding opponents. Make sure to keep it fully loaded before engaging enemies!
Shotguns are suited for close-range encounters. Try jumping up and shooting down to connect headshots by taking advantage of the bullet spread!
Handguns are another weapon type suited for close range combat. Use this as a secondary weapon after getting close to an opponent to finish them off.
Use Sniper Rifles to engage enemies while they are still far away. Make sure to have another weapon ready when they close in for engagement.
The damage that can be dealt by Miniguns is limited only by the amount of bullets that you have. It does have a wind-up time before shooting so make sure that you have cover before you start firing.Check Out The Minigun Here
Launchers are another long-range weapon that can deal a high amount of damage. Ammo for these types is limited to make sure to carry a back-up weapon in case you run out.
The Throwables listed here are the only ones that deal damage to players. These can deal damage to players who threw them so make sure you steer clear when you use them!
