Fortnite split-screen offers a way for two friends to play Fortnite side-by-side on the same screen and console. Split-screen is a classic form of cooperative gaming, but how do you play split-screen on Fortnite? Let's go over all of the details relating to Fortnite split-screen.

Fortnite Split-Screen: Can You Play Fortnite Split-Screen?

Yes, Fortnite supports split-screen mode. However, there are some limitations. Fortnite split-screen is available exclusively on Xbox and PlayStation. As of now, PC, Mobile, and Nintendo Switch players can not activate split-screen mode.

There are also limitations to which game types can be played in Fortnite split-screen mode. Creative, Save the World, Solos and limited-time modes are all disabled while using split-screen. Squads and Duos are the only two game modes available for players with split-screen enabled.

Lastly, there are a few final notes to be aware of before jumping into Fortnite split-screen:

  • You must have a stable internet connection
  • If either player disconnects or exits the match, the entire split-screen session will end
  • The lobby and all sub-menus are not shared - split-screen only works while in a match 
  • Split-screen mode does not allow players to share their inventories
  • Both players must have the same language settings selected as multi-language support is not available in Fortnite split-screen mode

Fortnite Split-Screen: How To Play Fortnite Split-Screen

Below are the steps you must follow to play Fortnite split-screen:

  1. Start Fortnite
  2. Navigate to the Battle Royale lobby screen
  3. Make sure a second controller is turned on and synced to the console
  4. Use the second controller to log in to a second account
  5. Once signed in, the second player will appear in the lobby and split-screen will automatically activate when you start your next game

Fortnite Split-Screen: Is Split-Screen Back?

Fortnite split-screen had been going strong dating back to 2019 when it was first added. However, Epic Games disabled Fortnite split-screen at the start of Chapter 3 - Season 1.

Chapter 3's launch was the biggest yet, and as a result, the servers have suffered. While there has been no official word from Epic Games, it's theorized that split-screen was disabled in an attempt to lessen the strain on Fortnite's servers.

After going MIA for a couple of weeks, Fortnite split-screen is officially back. Fortnite players can grab a friend and resume their split-screen gaming immediately.

That's everything you need to know about Fortnite split-screen. Split-screen allows two individuals to play Fortnite together at the same time without the need for a second screen or console. So, call up a sibling, partner, or close friend and begin the hunt for one of those elusive victory royales — together.
