What is Fortnite Error Code 91?
This error code typically means a connectivity issue. You might also see one of these errors during a party:
- Party services are currently experiencing technical difficulties.
- The party is currently not responding to join requests. Please try again later.
Every game or app has bugs or issues from time to time, and it might simply be a fluke in the game. On the other hand, you might be seeing Error Code 91 if you have an issue with your router, modem or local network.
It might be a good idea to restart your router or modem regularly to reduce such issues. But what if your network seems fine?
How Do I Fix Fortnite Error Code 91?
Let’s take a look at some other possible fixes for Fortnite Error Code 91, which will work on all platforms:
1) Restart the Game
A lot of errors will go away simply by restarting whichever app is causing the problem.
Close Fortnite then reopen it and see if that works.
2) Reboot Your Device
Switch your device off and on again, then reload the game.
3) Power Cycle the Network Equipment
If restarting the game and rebooting didn’t fix the error, you might want to try power cycling your network equipment.
Note: If you’re using mobile internet, skip this suggestion.
Otherwise, unplug your router or modem for one minute, then reconnect it and try the game again.
4) Game Server Issues
Fortnite’s own game servers might have a problem.
Go to the official Fortnite Twitter page to see if there is anything on there about this.
5) Check the Fortnite Game Files
You are going to have problems if your game files have become corrupted.
On a PC you can open the Epic Games Launcher, then navigate to settings and click on verify. Now reboot your device.
6) Reinstall the Game
Some people have only been able to fix Error Code 91 when installing a clean version of Fortnite. Of course deleting the game then reinstalling it is an extreme step, so try the other fixes first perhaps.
Bear in mind it can take a long time to reinstall, since the files are very large and your internet connection speed might not be super-fast.
7) Try a Private (Not Public) Party
Change your party from a public one to a private one and see whether that gets rid of Error Code 91.
8) Ask the Experts
If you have tried all of the above and nothing seems to help, and there is no current issue with the game server, you might want to contact the Epic Games technical support team for assistance.
