Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6: How To Play Split Screen On PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC And Mobile


Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 and brings more crazy battle-royale action.


If you'd like to lend your next duos match a more personal touch, you can squad up with a comrade on the same screen with split-screen multiplayer.

Not only does that mean you can chastise your teammate for every mistake in the flesh, but it's also much easier to point out where the person that killed you is hiding when you can point at the screen.

How to Play Fortnite In Split Screen

First, here's the bad news – Split Screen mode isn't supported on the PC or Nintendo Switch, nor will it work on Mobile.

The good news? Setting it up on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is as easy as pie provided your friend has a PSN ID or Xbox Live Account respectively.

If you're both logged into PSN and Xbox Live, simply head over to the game's lobby and hold X (on PS4) or A (on Xbox One) to join the same pre-match room.

If Player 2 has an Epic account, they can even retrieve their skins and emotes.

Only Player 1 needs to have Xbox Live for both players to be able to play, while PlayStation owners don't need to have PlayStation Plus to play at all.

You can also only play certain modes, so Team Rumble or Creative are off-limits, as is Solos for obvious reasons. Player 2 is also forced to leave the Battle Bus when Player 1 chooses to.


Fortnite Split Screen Not Working?

A new Fortnite split-screen bug is preventing teams of two from playing more than one match together.

The bug is preventing players from playing more than one match together in Split-Screen.

When your partner tries readying up for the next match, you may find that they're unable to do so.

Epic Games are "actively tracking this issue and are currently testing a fix for an upcoming release."

"While this is affecting a small subset of players currently, we'll be sure to provide an update when we've resolved this issue."

If you're looking for fix, try restarting the game or logging in and out of your account to get over this hump!
