Fortnite Error Codes List (and how to fix them)

How to solve every Fortnite error!

With any big game that requires players to be fully connected online, like Fortnite, there can be a lot of things that go wrong. There are several error codes that can pop up, and each one means something different. We'll go over what each code means and how to troubleshoot the issue without contacting a help service.

Fortnite Connectivity Error Codes

This is a general connection issue that can be either on the player's internet connection or a server issue.

Error 91

This error comes up from disconnection or inability to join a party. If it's a disconnection issue, players will need to verify the game files in the launcher's settings. Otherwise, players can switch their party status to private to join a party.


No connection at all. Treat this exactly the same as the first error.


This error is from not being able to connect to the Epic Games launcher. In this situation, players should check the status of the Epic Games server. Alternatively, this can be an issue with a VPN, proxy servers, or firewalls. Make sure all of these are disabled when playing.


This error is due to an issue with the sever and a patch. More than likely, this means that either the Epic Games server is down, or that the player's internet is too slow or disconnected.


This error is usually due to an issue with the player's internet. Player's should first check whether the console or PC is connected to the internet. Then check the internet service status to ensure the service isn't down. Finally, test the internet speed. If the speed is slow or being interrupted, try to use a wire connection to the console or PC.

White Screen Epic Games Launcher

If players have their launcher screen never load in, this means that the web cache is full. Players can empty the cache from C:\User\PC-Name\AppData\Local\EpicGamesLauncher\Saved.

Error 0

Instead of launching Fortnite, this error will ask the player to restart the client. Players receiving this error will need to verify the game files in the launcher's settings or run a command prompt as an administrator. The command prompt is "sfc/scannow."

Error 500

Error 500 happens when the game is unable to launch. This is one of the sad bugs that cannot be fixed on the player's end. Simply report the issue to ensure that Epic Games can fix it on their end.

Error 30005

This error keeps players from launching the game due to a bug with the software that is meant to keep players from cheating. To solve this issue, players will need to enter into the program files, and further into the EasyAntiCheat section. Then delete the .sys file inside.
