How to Redeem a Fortnite Code


You can get Fortnite reward codes from creators you follow, comic books, stores, and all kinds of other places. However, because Epic Games makes it possible to play Fortnite using one account on a variety of platforms, you can’t redeem your Fortnite code through a console and you have to do it through the Epic Games website.

To be clear, this isn’t how you redeem a Fortnite VBucks card. If that’s what you need help with, you can see my article about that here.

Some of the images associated with the steps are included inline below. All images associated with these steps can be seen in the embedded YouTube video.
