How To Fix Fortnite Error Code 91 | PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mobile

Hello guys! Today, we are going to fix Fortnite Error Code 91.

A lot of players have encountered this error since the game was released in 2017 and so far, there seems to be no effective solution to prevent it from resurfacing. If you’re getting this issue whenever you’re playing, this guide should help.

What is Fortnite Error 91?

One of the common error codes in Fortnite is error 91. This error code usually indicates that the gaming platform (PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, mobile) is having a connectivity issue, particularly when in a party. Error 91 may sometimes also manifest in either of these two messages: “The party is currently not responding to join requests. Please try again later” or “Party services are currently experiencing technical difficulties.”

What are the causes of Fortnite error 91?

If you’re in a party and you’re getting Fortnite error 91, one of the following factors must be to blame:


Game server issues.

Most of the time, error codes in Fortnite are caused by a problem outside a player’s control. If you were able to play Fortnite before but you’re getting the error 91 at this time, it’s a likely server problem. All you have to do in this case is to wait until the issue goes away on its own. 

In my experience, server issues like party-related problems are quickly resolved by the developer so just be patient and try playing the game at a later time.

Random game app fluke.

Any application may encounter errors or develop bugs from time to time. Such bugs may be temporary may be fixed by restarting the application, computer/console, or by both.

Local network problem.

For others, Fortnite errors may be caused by an unresponsive local networking equipment such as modem or router. While there’s no surefire way to totally eliminate problems with electronic devices, you can lessen the chances of bugs from developing by making sure that you regularly restart your modem or router.

If you’ve the above causes have been checked and they don’t seem to be the cause of the problem, make sure that you troubleshoot your local network.
