  1. Fortnite - Linking a Epic account to a different xbox account.


    I have 2 boys that play Fortnite and am having the following issue.

    My younger son always played Fortnite on the PC platform and played with his older brother who is on the Xbox platform. My younger son just received an Xbox One for his birthday and when he tried to link his Xbox account to his Epic account he gets the error
    "This Epic account was previously linked to a different external account. it can only be relinked to the old external account and not a new one". My older son then informed me that when he was trying to "help" his younger brother he tied his account to his
    younger brother's account by accident but then removed it.

    How can I link my younger son's Epic Account to his new Xbox account so he can play with all of his items and progress he made on the PC version on his Xbox?

    :)

    help

    Hello!

    Just to clarify is the issue that you have two Epic (Fortnite) accounts that are linked to two different Outlook e-mail addresses, and the epic account that is currently linked to your Xbox is the incorrect one?

    Account Link Issues - EPIC / XBOX Live mixed up ?

    Hi Stefan!

    Thanks for reaching out to us! When it comes to linking your Xbox Account (GamerTag) to your Fortnite account (Epic Games account), each GamerTag/profile can only link to one Fortnite account. If you are able to sign into Fortnite on your device with your
    son's Xbox account and his Epic account and view his progress then that is normal. However, if you'd like to sign into your Xbox account on Fortnite, it would need to correspond with the Epic games account associated with your GamerTag.

    If your own GamerTag (Xbox profile) is not linking up with your Epic Games account, then you would need to

    contact Epic Games concerning your Fortnite account
    directly for assistance in getting those two accounts to link. Just be sure you know the different account log in emails for their site specific to each of you.

    Hope this helps out!

    Moving V-Bucks and Challenge Packs to another account

    Hi there,

    there is no option to move items etc from one Xbox Live Account to another, but since it's Fortnite related, there might be an alternate solution.

    I think the content for Fortnite is linked to the Fortnite account (Epic account) and that can be linked to a different Xbox Live Account.

    For example this link shows how to connect a Epic Account to a console account (via the website):

    https://epicgames.helpshift.com/a/epic-accounts/?s=epic-accounts&f=how-do-i-link-my-console-account-to-my-epic-games-account-using-the-web&p=all


    Keep in mind to not use the Xbox Live Accounts or Epic Accounts when on a console, since this could result in a new Epic Account being created.

    I do advise you to contact Epic Support first so they can confirm the steps to take to make this possible before trying something. The earlier mentioned link has a Contact options.
