What is Fortnite Error Code 0

The most common cause of Fortnite Error Code 0 is an issue with the Easy Anti-Cheat application. This program is used by Fortnite and many other online games to stop cheaters and hackers. The anti-cheat applications monitor any changes to the game's files or memory that are not allowed.

The Easy Anti-Cheat program may not start correctly, or may not have the right permissions to work properly. To play Fortnite, you need to have Easy Anti-Cheat running properly on your system. If it is not working correctly, Error Code 0 will appear, and the game will not launch.

How to fix Fortnite Error Code 0

There are various solutions for Fortnite Error Code 0. Let’s explore them one by one and get back to the action:

  • Verify the game files: Use the Epic Games Launcher to verify the integrity of the game files. This process will check for any corrupt Fortnite files and replace them if necessary.
  • Reinstall Easy Anti-Cheat: If the issue persists, try uninstalling and reinstalling Easy Anti-Cheat by following the instructions on their website.
  • Add Easy Anti-Cheat to your antivirus exception list: Make sure that the Easy Anti-Cheat installation folder is added to the exception list, so the antivirus isn't blocking it.
  • Check your computer's permissions: Ensure that your computer has the necessary permissions to run Easy Anti-Cheat and Fortnite.
  • Restart your PC: Sometimes, a simple restart can fix problems by clearing out the temporary files and cache memory.

If none of these fixes resolve the issue, you may need to seek further assistance from Epic Games' support team or the Fortnite community. The team at Fortnite support may analyze the log files to give you a permanent solution.
