Epic Games definitely has its eyes peeled on its community. The Fortnite team over at Epic Games recently addressed a fix that is said to fix BSOD errors for Fortnite players on PC.
The error seems to be plaguing a few configurations and isn’t a system-wide issue at this point. BSOD errors often plague systems that have been overclocked or have some sort of hardware failing. If you’re experiencing the issue and are assured that you’re hardware isn’t the culprit, try these fixes provided by Epic Games.
- Navigate to C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\FortniteGame\Binaries\Win64\BattlEye
- Click the Uninstall_BattlEye.bat file (Windows Batch File)
- Click the Install_BattlEye.bat file (Windows Batch File)
Once that’s done, try restarting your PC before you try to launch the game again. If that hasn’t fixed your issue, try to look at other common culprits or even try to verify your game through the Epic Games Launcher.
