  • Prepare tactics for a new Fortnite map - If you have any friends waiting in a queue, you can chat with them about the best ways to survive and win in a new Fortnite map.

Usual wait times in Fortnite at new season launch

The expected wait times in Fortnite when a new season comes along vary depending on the time of day and the region you're playing from. However, it's not unusual to wait for 30 minutes or more to get into a Fortnite match during the first few days. If you're unsure how long the wait times will be, it's best to check the Fortnite server status.
