Why is There a Queue in Fortnite?

Fortnite Queue

Fortnite is currently experiencing a ‘Waiting in Queue’ error, much to the annoyance of players. This error appears as a loading screen that can prevent you from joining matches. It’s always an exciting time for folks whenever a season ends in the battle royale. That’s because it’s only a matter of time before a new season update drops. This time around, the OG Fortnite map is back. The old map brings back many memories for those of us who’ve played Fortnite ever since it launched. Unfortunately, not everyone can visit the iconic locations like Tilted Towers in the game because of the error.

Extended Login Queue Times Await Fortnite Players

The queue times are pervasive this time, mainly because many players want to try out the Fortnite OG map. Ever since Epic released Chapter 2, fans have been asking for the return of the old map, and now that the time has finally come, it’s no surprise that some of the retired veterans are making a comeback.

How to Fix the Waiting in Queue Error in Fortnite

One of the probable causes of getting the ‘Waiting in Queue’ error is when the servers are under maintenance. This is when the servers go offline for a new patch or update to go live. Since the issue is directly related to the servers, there’s no way to fix the error by any means; however, you can take some precautions not to encounter the problem while playing Fortnite.

For starters, you can avoid playing during peak hours. Since the servers are restricted to a limited capacity, playing during times when there are a lot of players can be a nuisance. It’s best to try queueing for matches whenever there’s less traffic. You can also check to see if your internet connection is stable. Sometimes, the root problem of the long queue times might be the slowness of the download/upload speeds.

Bypassing the Queue in Fortnite

If your patience is getting thinner by the minute because of the long queue times, you can bypass the queue by closing the Fortnite application and reopening it. You’ll reset your queue waiting time by doing this. It doesn’t always work, and you might end up with an even longer waiting time, but sometimes you can get lucky and find yourself in a lobby.
