As more and more players are paying the price for the “Fortnite Servers Offline” error, here are some solutions to get around the problem. Of course, these aren't silver bullets, but while we're waiting for the servers to regain some stability, it's still a gotcha. 

After weeks of waiting, season 7 finally made its debut on Fortnite, plunging the island into a futuristic atmosphere with the arrival of flying saucers and, of course, aliens.

This new atmosphere comes with changes to the map, the arrival of new weapons, new cosmetics to collect and much more!

Aliens have landed in Fortnite

Unsurprisingly, this influx of new content has caused many players to return to Battle Royale, which has not been particularly good for the servers.

Since the release of the new Fortnite season, more and more players are facing the “Fortnite servers offline” error, a problem that has solutions.


First of all, it's best to make sure it's not the Fortnite servers that are going down. It would be a shame to spend all day trying to fix a problem that there's nothing we can do about it.

To check the status of the servers, just click here . In a blink of an eye, you will be able to see if everything is working correctly for Fortnite, but also for the Epic Games Store. For more details, you can also access the Downdetector , a platform on which, in addition to the status of the servers, it is also possible to consult user comments.

If you prefer to go through social networks , Community Managers also inform players of any issues that arise in Fortnite and the progress of their resolution.

You can once again gift the Battle Pass on all platforms!

This technique is very basic, but the least we can say is that it has proven its worth many times over.

If the Fortnite servers are working, but you still get the error, it's best to start there. Sometimes trying to restart the game several times is enough to resolve the issue.

If restarting Battle Royale isn't enough, it's time to level up. The ideal culprit is Fortnite, but the offline servers error can also be caused by problems with your ISP.

Restarting the mouden can sometimes be enough to get everything in order.


If that still doesn't work, you can always change your DNS, knowing that most players keep the DNS assigned by their ISP.

Alter DNS on PC

  • Click on the Windows icon, go to “Network and Internet” and select the “Ethernet” tab.
  • Select “Modify adapter options” and “Modify parameters for this connection”
  • Select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and click on “Properties”.
  • At the bottom you will find DNS settings. Enter “” as the preferred DNS and “” as an alternative.
  • Find Internet Protocol Version 6 and enter “2001: 4860: 4860 :: 8888” as your preference and “2001: 4860: 4860 :: 8844” as your alternate DNS.

Change your DNS on Xbox One

  • From the Xbox home screen, select “Settings”.
  • Navigate to “Network”, then “Advanced Settings”, then “DNS Settings” and click “Manual”.
  • Fill in “” as the preferred DNS and then “” for the alternative.

Alterar DNS no PlayStation 4

  • On your PS4 home screen, go to “Settings” and then “Network”.
  • Click “Configure Internet Connection” and choose wired or wireless depending on how you connect to the Internet.
  • Then select: IP address settings (automatic), DHCP hostname (do not use) and then DNS settings (manual).
  • Type “” as preferred and then “” as alternative.


If none of the mentioned solutions work, unfortunately all you have to do is wait for Epic to solve the problem on their own.

To speed up the process, you can contact Epic Games to let them know about the problem you're having trying to access Fortnite.
