Changing Your Name on Fortnite
Whatever the reason for changing a name in Fortnite, whether it’s to maintain a competitive advantage, change your age, or rebuild your reputation from scratch, the process of changing your name in Fortnite is relatively simple.
The methods below can be applied to all game systems: Xbox, PS4, Nintendo and PC; however, you must have access to a PC to complete the renaming. Fortunately, players are not faced with unnecessary costs and this can all be completed in minutes.
Using PC for Epic Games
Once you have access to a PC computer, head over to the Epic Games website. At the top right is a button to log in.
Once clicked, the user has the option to enter his PC information by default, or if played on the console, he can click on various symbols representing the Xbox, PS4 and Nintendo channels.
A separate window will appear when you click on a console icon, and this is where you enter the account information associated with your console.
Epic Games Account
You’ll know when you’re logged in by looking in the top right corner and seeing a green icon. Then move your cursor over the symbol associated with this green icon and you will see a drop-down box with an entry for your account.
By clicking “account” you will see channels for personal information, payment history, passwords and security. The channel we need to select is personal information.
From here the process is simple; the personal information page includes an option for “display name”, and to change the content, simply delete the current information and replace it with your ideal name.
Confirmation and Restrictions
Some important notes about these changes is that when you enter your new name, you will receive a confirmation that you will have to re-enter the name. The confirmation message contains a reminder that the user will not be able to change their name for the next two weeks.
So think carefully about your choice and check the name in the box.
Conclusions on Changing Your Fortnite Name
Following these steps will change the display name associated with your game device. If you have multiple devices to play Fortnite, repeat these steps on the other account.
The process is extremely simple and starts immediately as soon as you log in again. Enjoy your newly named character as you enter the battlefields of Fortnite!
