There’s an error in Fortnite that plagues players worldwide, which is the growing Servers Not Responding issue. It appears for seemingly unknown reasons and prevents players from playing the game. It can be extremely annoying, but here’s how to solve that issue.
Check if there’s scheduled downtime for Fortnite
Sometime before patches and updates, Fortnite will go down for scheduled maintenance. The servers will be down in this case, and you’ll receive the Servers Not Responding issue. In this case, you should double-check whether some maintenance is happening.
Head to the official Fortnite Status Twitter to double-check whether the site has scheduled maintenance. Or head to the official Status page at Epic Games' status page. If you’re curious, you can head to the public Trello for updates on the status.

Check if the problem with Fortnite is on your end
If you’ve not already done it, now’s the time to reset your router and restart your PC or games console. In many cases, an internet connectivity issue is behind this annoying error. In this case, a restart will fix a lot of these issues.
However, you might be out of luck if there’s a wider network issue. You can check with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to see if there are any issues, but if not, then it's back to the drawing board. Ultimately, if neither of these solutions works, then there’s likely an unseen error with Fortnite, and the developers are working on the solution. This might take a few hours, so it’s best to be patient and wait it out.
