Fortnite Friends List Glitch: How to Fix the Bug

The Fortnite friends list glitch causes players' friends lists to appear unpopulated. Although Epic Games says it has fixed the problems caused by Tuesday's DDOS attacks, it doesn't hurt to know how to enjoy Fortnite when the friends list glitch returns.

There are a few tactics to try. If your friends list is continually scrolling back up, try clicking and dragging the scrolling bar rather than scrolling as normal.

If your friends list is erroneously empty on PC, restart your Fortnite launcher. This should populate the friends list. For PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch players, this means restarting the entire game.
