Can You Get a Matchmaking Key for Fortnite Custom Matchmaking?
Eagle-eyed Fortnite Battle Royale fans may have noticed there’s a new option assigned to the LT or L2 button on Xbox One and PS4 respectively. Pressing the trigger button on either console will bring up a Custom Matchmaking option. Unfortunately, it’ll ask you for a matchmaking key before you can use this feature, so here’s what you need to know about getting one.
First, let’s clear up exactly what the matchmaking key is. This isn’t like some sort of beta code. Instead, the matchmaking key will be entered by the host of a custom match in Fortnite Battle Royale, and all players who want to play within that match will need to enter the same matchmaking key.
As such, yes, it is possible to get a custom matchmaking key for Fortnite Battle Royale, but that will require you to know someone, such as a YouTuber or Twitch streamer who’s been given the special rights by Epic within the game to set one up. Then all they’d need to do is share the code with you and away you go.
Currently, Epic Games has yet to reveal when all players will be able to use the custom matchmaking option in Fortnite Battle Royale, but with a little bit of luck, it shouldn’t be too much longer.
