Playing Fortnite together with your friends on just one console has never been easier. Here is a guide on how to play split screen on Fortnite.
Step-by-step: How to play on split screen in Fortnite
Playing on split-screen in Fortnite is quite simple, and works the same for all consoles. All you have to do is follow the list below.
1. Login on a 2nd controller
First, start by having your friend log in on a second controller. Make sure the controller is connected to your system.
2. Load up Fortnite
It is as simple as it sounds; load up into Fortnite.
3. Press the [P2] Log In button
Press the [P2} Log In button (Triangle on PlayStation, Y on XBOX).
4. Ready up
This is the final step. Once you are both readied up, you will be good to go.
Once you have completed these steps, both players should be joined together in the lobby and be ready to play. If your team-mate does not have their own account to log in as on the second controller, they have the option to play as a guest.
