Fortnite has become a global phenomenon in gaming due to its abundant features and continuous updates. Every week, players can engage with new weapons, items, explore fresh locations on the ever-changing map, and earn XP through daily and weekly challenges.
While finding a lobby filled with other players is easy, you may have noticed that lower and mid-tier lobbies often mix bots with real players. This ensures faster matchmaking and gives everyone, regardless of skill level, a chance to eliminate opponents.
However, if your main objective is to complete challenges, facing real players can be frustrating. Luckily, there’s a way to guarantee that only bots populate your matches. Here’s a useful tip to ensure a more relaxed gaming experience.
How to Get Bot-Only Matches in Fortnite
To ensure that every enemy in your match is a bot, follow these steps:
Create a brand-new Fortnite account that has never completed a full match. The first match played by a new account is always against bots, and you can take advantage of this. Visit the Epic Games account registration page to create a new account using your email, Google, Facebook, or other methods.
Choose an additional platform to use for this account. Download the game on a mobile device or tablet, allowing easy access while using your main account on your primary platform. Sign in, download any updates, and log into the game.
Load your second account on the additional platform and add your primary account as a friend.
Have one of the accounts invite the other to a party, then ready up and start a match. This match will be entirely populated by bots. However, there’s an essential requirement to continue using this trick, so don’t skip the next step.
This is the most critical part: As soon as the match begins, immediately have the second account leave the lobby. It’s vital to ensure that the second account never completes a match. This guarantees that every future match with this account will be registered as its “first match” and will always be filled exclusively with bots.
You can repeat this process as many times as you like, making it perfect for completing daily and weekly quests. Additionally, you can invite other friends to the party, introducing them to the game with a few casual matches before facing real opponents.
Keep in mind that wins in bot-only matches won’t count towards earning a crown. So, use this trick to relax and enjoy some leisure time in Fortnite.
