Why Is My Mic Not Working In Fortnite?

If your microphone isn’t working, try unplugging it and firmly plugging it back on your controller as that’s the most common problem.

Once you’re sure that the headphones aren’t the problem check the game’s mic settings, just in case you might have muted some of the audio options.

Now, if these options don’t work then things might be more serious so before doing anything crazy, try out some spare earphones first to really make sure the game or system is the problem.

Some fans have suggested turning chat and Fortnite off, testing the microphone’s volume on your gaming computer, then trying to turn the game on again.

On PS4 or Xbox One, try checking out the controller’s volume capacity since you might have messed with that beforehand or the default options are a little too soft.

Once all of these options have been worn out, you’re better off getting new headphones or a new microphone for your online play.

Whether it be online issues or audio issues, Fortnite isn’t immune to these problems as these are just things that happen when games have to be online all the time.

Hopefully, there aren’t too many players who are bent up about this and continue to persevere or play other games.

Fortnite is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.
