Fixing Fortnite Error 91
Fortnite is everywhere.
Since it came out, I’ve watched the whole Battle Royale genre go from being but one or two faces in the crowded world of new games, to being mainstream enough to make literal billions. The moment I came to understand the scope of Fortnite’s massive popularity was when the game made numerous cameos in my younger sister’s high school graduation speeches… speeches made by teachers.
Fortnite is available on several platforms, and Epic Games continues to release updates to keep their ever growing fan base coming back for more and more.
Fortnite is generally known for a smooth user interface and steady gameplay, but like any gaming experience, users can run into occasional issues of all kinds. Many users have reported having gotten randomly disconnected from the game as a result of Fortnite Error Code 91.
If you’ve found yourself frustrated by having your gaming experience interrupted for what seems like no reason, you are definitely not alone. Error 91 is one of the most common errors on Fortnite, and while Epic Games continues to work on getting rid of it for good, there are a few things you can do in the mean time that may help you fix it.
The first step in fixing Fortnite Error 91 is to verify your Fortnite game files.
Sometimes, corrupt or missing game files can linger in your system and cause the game to come up with an Error 91. Verifying game files often fixes corrupt game files, and updates others.
To verify your game files:
- Open Epic Games Launcher on your PC. It’s a good idea to restart your computer before you proceed, so nothing hinders the verification process.
- Click on the Settings icon just to the right of the Launch button.
- From the menu, choose Verify. This will start the verification process right away.
- Wait until all files are finished being verified. This typically takes around 10 minutes, but can take longer when not plugged in to Wifi.
If Error Code 91 persists, you can try reinstalling Fortnite on your device.
This will ensure that you have the latest version of the game and all the updated files installed. Make sure to uninstall the game first, so you can download and install the latest version.
It’s recommended that you try verifying your game files before trying to reinstall. The process is faster, and both of these solutions serve the same purpose. If Error 91 continues to be a problem, you can contact Epic Games customer service online.
