You can change your Fortnite username to one you’d like through a simple and free process on the Epic Games website.

Fortnite Season 5

If you’re not happy with your current username in Fortnite then you’re in luck, since Epic Games have made the process of changing it completely free and easy on PC. Here’s how you can get it done.

When making an account in any online game, you’ll get the opportunity to pick your own unique username that your friends can find you through. Epic Games’ battle royale Fortnite is no exception to this.

However, you might end up disliking the username you first picked and will want to change it. Luckily, Fortnite is unlike other online games since you won’t have to use a complicated or expensive method to get this done.

How to change your Fortnite username on PC

Epic Games made the name-changing process in Fortnite completely free of charge on PC, and it’s fairly straightforward as well. The only downside is that you can’t do it more than once ever two weeks, so you’ll have to pick wisely.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Visit the Epic Games website here and click “Sign in” in the top right-hand corner
  2. Sign in to your account
  3. Hover over your username in the top right corner and click “Account”
  4. Under “Account Info” click blue pen icon next to your current username
  5. Type in your new username and hit “Confirm”

That’s all you need to do in order to change your username in Fortnite. If you followed these instructions correctly, then you’ll then see a green notification at the top of your screen that says “Name updated,” confirming the change.

Changing your Fortnite username on Xbox One, PS4 and PS5

This process is a bit different if you play Fornite on a Xbox One, since your username is tied to your Gamertag. Meaning that if you want to change it in the battle royale, then you’ll have to alter your overall profile name.

Here’s how you can changer your Fortnite username on the Xbox One:

  1. Hold down the Xbox button on your controller
  2. Head over to Profile and System, then select your current Gamertag
  3. Choose My Profile, then select Customize Profile
  4. Type in your new Gamertag under the Choose new Gamertag tab

Unfortunately, this method isn’t free as with the PC, as you’ll have to spend a bit of cash. Alternatively, you can change it by logging into your Microsoft account on your browser. Just remember that your Gamertag will be your name on other online games too.

Similarly, you can change it on the PS4 or PS5 by altering your PSN name:

  1. Head over to Settings from the PlayStation home screen
  2. Select Account Management and then open up Account Information
  3. Scroll down and then select Profile to choose your Online ID.
  4. Click I Accept on the pop up window that appears and enter your new Online ID here
  5. Click Confirm and leave the screen to see your new username
PS5 menu

That’s all there is to it, and as with the Xbox One, your username will change across all of your online games when you do this. You can also change it from your browser by heading over to your PlayStation Network Account.

We hope that this guide has been helpful to you in changing your username on Fortnite. Since you can only do this every 2 weeks, you should make sure that you pick one that you’ll want to stick with.

Here’s every Fortnite Chapter 3 NPC and their location on the Season 1 map.

You’ll notice that Fortnite Chapter 3 features fewer characters than in previous seasons and many of them are grouped together at the same locations. However, more NPCs are expected to be added later on.

Where to find Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs in Fortnite Chapter 3

Fortnite have added the new Klomobo dinosaurs into the game, giving players new ways to move around the map. Here’s where you can find them.

Klobos dinosaur in Fortnite CHapter 3

The first Fortnite update of 2022 is here, introducing the Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs to the island. Here’s everywhere you can find them, how to feed them, and how to use them as rotation devices.

Fortnite’s 19.10 update will go down in history as the patch that brought back fan-favorite POI Tilted Towers. The legendary area has been missing from the game since 2019, but finally, players can “drop Tilted” and battle players in the city’s buildings.

Of course, that wasn’t the only thing added in this major patch, with the Buttercake dinosaurs that were teased in the Season 1 promo finally appearing on the island.

You’ll now see the creatures roaming around, but what can you do with them, and where can you find them? Here’s everything you need to know about Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs.

The Klombos are peaceful dinosaurs that can be seen roaming across the map after the January 18 update. Be warned though, they will attack you if provoked, so make sure not to hurt them in the heat of battle.

The good news is that there are at least four Klombos dinosaurs roaming the map at any one time, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see one for yourself.

The bad news is that they don’t appear in the same place every match. According to leakers, their positions alter game to game, but your best chance of spotting one is in the northeast corner of the map. Avoid the sandy area in the south, as this has the least number of spawns.

How to feed Klombos in Fortnite

Feeding Klomos is relatively easy. You’ll need to keep a lookout for the new Klomberry consumable item that can now be found on bushes around Fortnite‘s island.

If you’ve upset a Klombo, you can feed it one of these treats to calm it down, then keep giving them to these beasts to gain a reward in the form of items it will spit onto the ground for you.

How to use Klombos to rotate around the map

Using Klombos to rotate around the map is simple. Simply jump on their tail, and run up the back of this creature. Once you reach its head, the dinosaur’s blowhole will shoot you up into the air.

This can be used to effectively escape from a battle you can’t win, or simply to head towards a different part of the map.

That’s everything we know about Klombos so far, but it’s always possible that these creatures have more hidden talents we don’t know about. Epic may also make changes to them as the season advances, so keep an eye out for new tricks or a different attitude.

Tilted Towers in Fortnite

But the crossovers aren’t the only thing you should be excited about, as the fan-favorite Tilted Towers POI has finally returned for the first time since May 2019. On top of that, players also have a new consumable item in the Klomberry.

Check out the full Fortnite 19.10 update patch notes below.

Tilted Towers returns in Fortnite 19.20 update

Fortnite Tilted Towers POI

Fortnite shifted to a brand-new map with Chapter 3 and eagle-eyed players spotted a familiar POI under the ice – Tilted Towers.

Tilted Towers was a fan-favorite location from Chapter 1, offering the perfect action-packed drop spot for high kill games. A version of it returned in Chapter 2 with Salty Towers, but Chapter 3’s version is the real deal.

Tilted Towers can be found in the middle of the map, just below the island’s biggest lake. Tilted Towers has replaced Coral Castle, a change that some Fortnite players are disappointed about.

Klomberry consumable

Along with the exciting return of Tilted Towers, players also have a new consumable item to eat. The Klomberry helps to both heal players and add shields, and players can carry 15 of them at a time.

These berries can be found in Butter Cake Bushes, which can be found scattered randomly around the island.
