Fortnite servers down: What to do when you can’t connect
Fortnite is one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but like any online game, it can experience server downtime. If you’re unable to connect to the game, getting specific error codes, or experiencing scheduled downtime, there are a few things you can do to stay informed and get back to playing as soon as possible.
Check for information on @FortniteStatus Twitter feed
The @FortniteStatus Twitter feed is the main place to check for information on any current issues with gameplay or connectivity. It confirms when scheduled downtime for maintenance is due to happen in advance, as well as when the Fortnite servers will be back up. Scheduled downtime normally takes place at 1am PDT / 4am EDT / 9am BST and lasts for 2-3 hours on average, with timing aimed to minimise disruption.
Visit the Epic Games Public Status site and Downdetector status page
If you’re still having issues with the game but there is nothing being reported by Epic, you can visit the Epic Games Public Status site to see what Fortnite services are currently reporting as Operational and which have issues. You can also visit the Downdetector status page for Fortnite to see if other players are experiencing similar problems. If you see a sudden spike in reports coming in then you’ll know you’re not alone, and it’s likely only a matter of time before official word is posted on the matter.
Most importantly, if you find out that Fortnite is down then don’t panic! Server downtime is infrequent and usually lasts a couple of hours at most, so you shouldn’t have to spend long asking when are the Fortnite servers coming back up and you’ll be back to the battle royale in no time.
