We have all seen examples of this while playing Fortnite.
A name that literally stands out of the crowd. It could a single special character, a wink face, or a bunch of gibberish for all we know; but they sure do stand out!
Apart from helping your name look better, having special characters in front of your name is completely acceptable and does not violate any terms or policies of the game. Here are a few examples of specialized 'Fortnite Fonts' that you can apply in the game.
Having fun with Fortnite fonts
Since you are probably wondering how to transform your Fortnite name with these fonts; here is a step-by-step breakdown of everything you need in order to get this done.
#1. Sign in to your Epic games account by visiting the Epic games website.
#2. Log in to your Fortnite account. Click on the option titled 'Account' on the upper right corner of your screen which should take you to your account detail section.
Look to the left hand corner for the option titled 'General'
#3. Once you have this open, set this aside.
Open a new tab on your browser and visit LingoJam
You will be greeted with two blank white boards on both sides of your screen. The board on the left will allow you to enter your desired username, which will then be displayed in various font types in the right hand box.
Once you have selected a suitable Fortnite font for your username, move onto the next step
#4. In the box labeled DISPLAY NAME, copy and paste your desired new display name from LingoJam's website which you selected during the previous step.
#5. After you have entered your desired Fortnite font into your username box, check on the box that reads the following: "I understand I cannot change my display name again for 2 weeks after this change"
This can be found right under the name change option. Finally click on the blue colored "Confirm" button as shown in the image below.
Be sure about the name that you want to confirm, Epic Games requires a cool-down period of two weeks before you can change your username again.
