At the start (and sometimes the end) of every Fortnite season, there’s a cinematic that automatically plays. These are normally really well done, with superb animations and stunning visions bringing the vibrant world of Fortnite to life. But what if you simply don’t care about the story and just want to get playing the game? Here’s how to skip Fortnite cinematics.
How to Skip Cinematics in Fortnite
All you need to do is press and hold the following buttons:
- PS4/ PS4: X
- Xbox One/ Series X|S: A
- Nintendo Switch: B
- PC: Enter
Keep these held down and you’ll see a little button prompt appear in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Once the circle around this has filled, you’ll the cinematic will end and be skipped so you can dive right into the action.
Skip Cinematics Not Working?
Some players over on the game’s subreddit have noted how the cinematics cannot be skipped unless the Battle Pass is purchased. They reported that once the Battle Pass was bought, the cinematics could then be skipped, and didn’t continue to play every time they loaded Fortnite up.
That being said, this doesn’t appear to be an issue in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6. However, if you are having issues, you may want to give this a try if you were planning on buying the Battle Pass this season anyway.
That’s everything you need to know on how to skip Fortnite cinematics. For more tips, tricks and guides on the game, head on over to our guide wiki, search for Twinfinite, or see more coverage on the new season below.
