How do I add special characters to my Fortnite name? You may have seen different characters in various player names while playing Epic Games' Battle Royale, but how do you add special characters to your name? Read on to find out how to insert special characters into your Fortnite name. Find out below how you can make your name stand out in Fortnite with the use of some special and different characters.

How to put special characters in the Fortnite name



To insert special characters into your Fortnite name, you need to copy and paste them. Unless you know keyboard shortcuts for special characters, you'll need to copy and paste them from a word processor or online. You can find databases of special characters on websites like Wikipedia, for example if you are looking for different written languages. Once you've found the special characters you want to add to your Fortnite name, copy and paste them onto the Epic Games website.

Follow these steps to find out how to insert special characters into the Fortnite name:

  • Use a word processing program or find the special characters you want to use online
  • Copy the special characters you want to add to your name on Fortnite
  • Go to the Epic Games website and log in
  • Open the "Account" screen
  • Click "General" (this should automatically open to "Account")
  • Click the blue box with a pencil image inside to change the display name
  • Enter your new display name (remember to paste in those special characters)
  • Enter the new display name again to confirm the change
  • Eventually, the special characters you used work and show up in the game on Fortnite. Once you've changed your Fortnite display name, you can't change it again for two weeks. Alternatively, you can use Fortnite Fonts on LingoJam. Using this third-party website, you can enter your name on the left, and on the right, a list of special character-infused versions of the name will appear in the characters that Fortnite is supposed to recognize. Copy and paste the fancy version of your Fortnite display name from here using the method described above.
