Attention all Fortnite gamers, the servers are down and we need your help to bring them back up so you can get back to hitting the griddy with Goku at Tilted Towers. All that’s needed is to check out all of the information below to find out what the ‘Fortnite Servers Not Responding’ message means and how to fix the issue.
What Does ‘Fortnite Servers Not Responding’ Mean? Explained & How To Fix
It’s pretty obvious why you’re here right now. Fortnite is down and the message, ‘Fornite Servers Not Responding’ is popping up. Truly, there is no worse fate than having a play session interrupted by issues with the game. Fortunately, there are a couple of troubleshooting steps that may resolve the issue.
Restart Your Device
The best way to make sure that the issue isn’t actually your own hardware is to first restart whatever device is trying to launch the game. Sometimes a computer, phone, or game system just needs to restart so it can get a new IP.
Check Your Network Connection
If restarting the computer doesn’t work, then the next step is to make sure that the network your device is connected to is functioning properly.
The first part of resolving a possible network issue is restarting both your modem and router. Power down both (or just one if it’s a combination modem/router), then power the modem back on until it shows you have an internet connection. Next, reconnect the router to power. Follow the steps below if the issue continues.
On a wired connection, unplug then reconnect the ethernet cable on both ends to make sure there’s a solid connection.
On Wi-Fi, disconnect from the network, forget it in the device’s network settings, then reconnect to it.
What ‘Fortnite Servers Not Responding’ Means
If none of those options work, then it means that the issue is on Epic’s end. This means there’s not much you can do until they resolve whatever is causing the server issue.
That’s all there is to know about what the ‘Fortnite Servers Not Responding’ message means and how to fix the issue. Hopefully, if you’re checking this out because of a Fortnite server issue, they aren’t down for too long. Stay strong, my friends.
