How to fix Fortnite error 91?

No piece of software — regardless how well-polished — is immune to bugs and the same trickles down to our games as well. One such perfect example is Fortnite. While the game is known for its smooth UI and stable gameplay experience, it does run into issues from time to time.

One very common issue you might run into when playing Fortnite is Error 91. The error happens when there is some sort of connection problem between the game’s client on your device and the server. 

The general fixes in such cases are usually restarting the game or power-cycling your networking equipment like any routers or switches that you may be using. Sometimes, it’s just a server issue that you can do nothing about. 

If for whatever reason that hasn’t worked for you, here’s what you can do to try and fix the issue.
