Often you wonder how to fix the lag in Fortnite and you do not find a solution this guide is perfect because we do not have one but a lot of solutions

 In this type of multiplayer video games, where user traffic is huge and the requirements are demanding, it is normal for many players to have to ask themselves how to fix the lag, it is unfortunate but it is normal, so it is not surprising that these things happen in Fortnite.

How to fix the lag in Fortnite.

The first thing you have to make sure is that your computer meets the minimum minimum requirements if you are a PC user to be able to run this game, so we list them below for you:

Windows 7 or Mac OSX Sierra operating system at a minimum.

  • Core i3 2.4 GHz processor.
  • 4 GB of RAM.
  • Intel HD 4000 graphics.

In case your PC exceeds the requirements, the graphics settings have been changed too much, so we recommend lowering them little by little to see if it improves. Another quick solution is to check the speed of your Internet connection to see if there is a high PING result, for this we recommend using Speedtest.net.

In case there is an unstable download speed problem or if the Ping is too high, we recommend contacting your ISP to try to fix it.

Although as we have mentioned many times before, we recommend connecting your PC to the internet by cable and not wifi, in addition to using VPNs.

In case none of the aforementioned works the reason could be a Firewall problem, so the game could be blocked, so make sure to check this. In case it is blocked you will have to open the ports used by the game which are 80, 443 and 5222.

How to fix the lag in Fortnite - Port Opening in Windows.

The first thing you have to do is go to Control Panel> System and Security> Windows Firewall> Advanced settings. Then on the left side select where it says Inbound rules, select New rule and then in Port> Next and in the text box next to Specific local ports you will have to put "5222, 443, 80" and then select Next as many times as necessary .

When the Name box comes out you will have to put "UE4" and press Finish.

How to fix the lag in Fortnite - Port Opening on MacOS.

If you have a Mac, here are the steps to allow Fortnite to go through the firewall:

Mac users will start by going to System Preferences> Security or Security and Privacy> Firewall, open the padlock icon in the preferences panel and enter an administrator name and password.

Then go to Firewall Options> Add application () and choose the application for which you want to allow incoming connection privileges, press Add and finally OK.

How to fix the lag in Fortnite - Installing updates.

A simple solution but not everyone takes into account is to have the client updated, so if you have automatic updates disabled, we recommend activating them as soon as possible.

How to fix the lag in Fortnite - Installing updates - Error 6 and error 0.

Both error 6 and error 0 are just some of the various errors that players can experience in the game, so many wonder how to fix them. Unfortunately, though, this is a connection and pairing related server issue, so at least for now the only solution is to be patient and wait for the developers to fix it.

The same thing you will have to do if you cannot get V-Bucks, this is a problem that only developers can solve, so we recommend that you contact the support team to report your problem.

 So we finish this guide on how to fix the lag in Fortnite, which we hope has been very useful and you can solve any problem you have in the game with our recommendations.
