You Can Finally Merge Two Different Epic Accounts in Fortnite

But now, gamers with multiple accounts on different platforms can start the process of putting them all together, bringing with it all the cosmetic items and V-Bucks on each. Being able to play against your friends regardless of what device they used has been one of Fortnite's strengths, but it made managing game resources sometimes more hard than it needed to be.

The secondary account will be "merged and disabled" and the login on your secondary account will be linked to your primary account instead. You can not merge two accounts on the same platform. A holding period to make sure you're not trying anything phishy like stealing somebody else's account, I guess.

Most importantly, one of the accounts must have been used to play Fortnite on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch and the other on PS4.

Everything from the Battle Royale mode will merge to the main account while only selected things from Save the World will come across: llamas, defenders, heroes, schematics, survivors, XP, evolution, and perk materials.


The user must have access to all associated email addresses used in the Fortnite accounts. Just to be clear, the wording specifies that the second account is disabled.

Go to the Epic Games Account Merge page. To be absolutely clear, merging two Fortnite accounts means the primary account will receive transferred inventory items while the secondary account gets deleted.

Select the account you want to keep (primary account). The whole process should take about two weeks, after which all items and V-Bucks will be in a unified under one happy roof.

The first stage of the process is heading over to the Epic Games website and selecting the merge account option. This merger tool is specifically created to help people affected by the Sony account lockdown issue, and will not help you merge two unrelated old accounts. Fortnite cosmetics and Vbucks will be moved for example, but other items like Unreal marketplace items and Save The World progress will not.
