Fortnite account merge tool released: Here’s how to use it

New World MMO poster 2 via Amazon 2019

To carry out the account merge, at least one account must have played on Xbox One or Switch, and the other on the PlayStation 4, before September 28. However, due to this cross-platform play, many players have multiple Fortnite accounts on various platforms.

In order for an account merge to be possible, you will need to set one of your accounts as a Primary Account and one as your Secondary Account. Don't panic! You'll have to wait two weeks for the V-Bucks and cosmetic items you had on your secondary account to appear on your primary account.

The feature was due to roll out late previous year but suffered a delay. The secondary account will then be disabled. Battle Royale players may merge all of their cosmetic items, while Save the World players can merge only their Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution and Perk Materials.

Keep in mind to think carefully about whether you want to merge your accounts or not. The stuff from your secondary account will be transferred to the primary account. Be aware that you'll need access to the email addresses used for both accounts - and obviously the login credentials, too. The first account you'll log into is the one you want to become your primary account, while the second account you'll log into is the one you want to move V-bucks and purchases from. As Eurogamer reports, Fortnite's creator Epic promised to fix the problem by launching an account merge tool.

Players who have had their accounts banned or disabled will not be able to transfer items from their abandoned profile.

Players will remember the times when PS4 fans were unable to use numerous cross-platform options others could with the likes of Xbox One and Switch.

The next steps will be permanent, so make sure you select the correct account.

So if you have created two accounts on multiple gadget places like PS4, Xbox now you can simply erase the one you are not accessing or need while retaining all your cosmetics and V-bucks, isn't pretty awesome.

As for the actual Fortnite account merging, it's an incredibly easy task.

Epic Games has also confirmed the items that will not be merged, as well as those that can be.

Other items such as Unreal Marketplace items and Creative Islands will also not be merged over from your secondary account. Head to the Epic Games site to read the complete breakdown of what will happen, what will be kept, and what will be lost.
