How to use your main Fortnite account on different platforms

Cross-platform play means that one friend can be at home firmly fixed on their Xbox Series X, and their friend could be buddied up with them from a coffee shop on the Switch.

The Switch is the perfect example of needing versatile account accessibility as keen players may want to continue their battle royale rumbling elsewhere if their console is not available.

So to ensure you’re boosting those Battle Pass levels from rookie numbers to Fortnite pro numbers on any platform, here’s a simple guide on how to do so.

  1. Go to the Epic Games website
  2. Sign in to your account
  3. Go to your account page and look for the “Connected Accounts” tabs
  4. It should then give you an option to connect to GitHub, Twitch, Xbox, PlayStation Network, and Nintendo Switch
  5. Select the applicable platforms
  6. Sign in to the options you’ve selected to verify your details
  7. Once your accounts are connected, you should be good to go

Just like that, you’ll be able to use your primary Fortnite account across the desired platforms you have connected. Meaning your V-Bucks, costumes, Battle Pass, etc, will all be accessible as well.

All that’s left to do is have fun on whichever device you choose to use and try to earn some cross-platform Victory Royales.
