How account merging works in Fortnite

Adjust Comment Print

The ability to merge your Fortnite accounts to share cosmetics and pool V-Bucks across different platforms is finally possible. In addition to this, players must have used each account before September 28th.

Additionally, banned or disabled accounts can't be merged, which just seems like common sense. And whatever progress or money you made on one account couldn't transfer over to the other.

You can only merge accounts tied to game console networks - PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch - that were used at least once before 28 September 2018.

Transfers to your new primary account will take around two weeks, which will cause a short period in which you might have to play with default skins, but it's a small price to pay to avoid having to play with the word "Switch" appended to the end of your usual online gamer name.

As for the actual Fortnite account merging, it's an incredibly easy task.

Naturally, you'll need access to all your email addresses associated with the accounts you wish to merge.

The campaign will allow you to merge "Llamas, ' 'Defenders, ' 'Heroes, ' 'Schematics, ' 'Survivors, ' experience, 'Evolution, ' and 'Perk Materials" only.

Go to the Epic Games Account Merge page.

Select the account you want to keep (primary account).

Make sure the account merge is correct. This means that all the cosmetic items and V-Bucks that you've earned across platforms will be conveniently gathered in one place.

Epic Games has rolled out an account-merging process for Fortnite, allowing players to pick a primary profile that gobbles up all of the goodies from a second account. "Other Items such as Unreal Marketplace items, Creative Islands, and Save The World account level and progress will not be merged over from your secondary account".

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option.
