Fortnite players who enjoy puzzles and are also looking to test their knowledge of the battle royale will be interested in the Wordle-inspired word game Fortle.

Fortnite’s success has caused a massive community of dedicated players and fans. Of course, the battle royale mode is extremely popular, especially with its addition of the Zero Build mode in Chapter 3 Season 2, but its Creative and Save the World modes also have huge followings.

With that being said, Fortnite fans are always hungry for more content, and this new Wordle-inspired Fornite game just might give you your daily fix.

What is Fortle?

Wordle is a web-based word game in which players have to discover a five-letter word every day by guessing letters that are in the word — similar to the word game Hangman.

Inspired by this game that has become so popular in 2022, a website called Fortniteskin decided to make its own version of the game, in which a new Fortnite-related 5 letter word is presented each day for players to work out and discover.

How to play Fortle

In Fortle, players get six attempts to guess a five-letter word each day. There are six rows of five tiles to indicate the attempts. Each time the player guesses a word, the tiles will change color. The tile will turn grey if the letter is not in the word.

If the tile goes orange, this means the letter is correct and also in the right spot for the five-letter word. If the tile goes purple, this means that the letter is in the word, but just in a different spot to where the player has guessed it.

In order to play Fortle, simply follow these steps:

  1. Head over to
  2. Select the “Fortle” tab on the top right of the page.
  3. Begin guessing your words and return once a day for a new puzzle.

The words can range from Forts to Spies or Stone and anything that is five letters and related to or within Fortnite, so get thinking! The letter options will also become greyed out once you’ve used them so that you know which letters you have already guessed.

If you guess a word that is not recognized, luckily it won’t count as an attempt. If you are unable to find the word and fail to get it within the six attempts, you will be informed what the word is.

The website also keeps a tally of your statistic, including the number of words you’ve attempted and how many you have been able to get correct.
