Below are the solutions that you can try to fix your Fortnite error code AS-1041:

Before diving deeper into your troubleshooting, the first thing that you want to do is to check for any on-going server problems that might impact your own game.

Fix #3: Use another set of DNS server settings.

Another reason why you may be experiencing the error code AS-1041 in Fortnite may be incorrect DNS settings. There’s also a chance that the ISP-provided DNS servers may have gone down at the moment.

Here’s what you must do:

  1. Press the Windows key on your keyboard.

  10. For your Alternate DNS server, type in: 8.8.4.4.
  11. Make sure to enable Validate settings upon exit box, then click OK.

Fix #4: Refresh the DNS cache.
