Fortnite players have found a simple trick in-game that lets them play in bot only lobbies during their matches. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Following Fortnite’s quick rise to success in recent years, Epic Games has decided to add in-game measures to keep new players coming back to the battle royale title.


One of those features was for players with brand new accounts to find bot lobbies in their first few matches, but a clever trick has now been found to give you unlimited games solely against bots on your main account.

Fortnite players have found a way to play in lobbies full of AI-controlled bots.

Bot only lobbies can be quite useful, by allowing players to get a feel for the Fortnite map and modes before having to worry too much about their in-game opponents, who are completely controlled by AI.


However, for other Fortnite players, bot lobbies can be a great tool for practice or for completing any difficult challenges that you might have available. 

To do this bot lobby trick for your main account, you will need to create a new account on a different platform to your first, such as mobile, PC, or console. Here’s everything you need to know.

How to get unlimited bot lobbies in Fortnite

  1. Create a new account on a platform different from your main account’s platform.
  2. Send your new account a friend request and accept it.
  3. Have your new account create the lobby and join on your primary account.
  4. Set the lobby to a Squads No Fill match.
  5. Once you’re ready, queue up for the game by making both accounts ready up.
  6. As soon as the lobby loads, simply leave the lobby on your new account. This account can not gain any experience for the trick to work.
  7. Your main account should now be in a full bot lobby without any other players.

You should be able to complete any difficult challenges in these bot lobbies.

So there you have it, once you follow these steps you should find yourself in matches with AI-controlled characters as your opponents.


It is worth noting that to make this trick give you unlimited bot lobbies, you will need to make sure you leave on your second account before it can get any experience.

As of now, it is unclear if Epic Games has any intention of removing this simple trick, as it is not quite as impactful as some of Fortnite’s previous game-breaking glitches.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 


Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon. 

Epic Games
Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
