One of the most widely played Battle Royale games, Fortnite is being reported to have a newly weird glitch that makes the lobby background blue in color. The lobby is where you can see your game character standing before you start any Battle Royale or Save the World match in the game. In the normal working of the lobby, the background adapts as per the map you select. But as per the users’ reports, the lobby of the Fortnite game is not loading properly and is stuck on a solid blue color.

If you are also facing this glitch then luckily there is a workaround that you can try to solve the issue. Let’s have a look at it.

How To Fix Fortnite Blue Lobby Background Glitch

This issue has been officially acknowledged by Epic Games and besides working on the fix, the company has also shared some workarounds, and here are those.

Fix 1: Restart Fortnite

The official workaround shared by Epic Games says to simply restart the game. Restarting the game will make sure to reset the game files including the game lobby. This should work for most of the Fortnite users who are facing this issue.

Fix 2: Play a match and return back to the lobby

Another way to reset the lobby background is to play a match and then come back to the lobby. You can play any of the Fortnite matches like the normal Battle Royale mode or Save the World, etc. and after finishing the game, you’ll be landed in the game lobby which should be fixed by now.

Fix 3: Change the game language

The third workaround that has been seen working for many Fortnite users and has also been shared by Epic Games is to change the game language and back again to the original one. To change the game language:

Step 1: Open Fortnite, click on the hamburger menu and go to Settings.

Step 2: Click on the Gear icon on the top left and navigate to the LANGUAGE option.

Step 3: Use the Arrow keys to change the language.

Step 4: Once done click on the APPLY button to save the changes.

Step 5: After changing the language, follow the same steps and change the language to what it was previously.

Once done, your lobby should be normal now and the glitch should be fixed.

Bottom Line

So, that was it for this fixing guide and I am hoping that you will be able to fix the Fortnite blue lobby background glitch by using the aforementioned workaround. Epic Games is aware of this issue and is working on its permanent fix. But until then, you will have to use the workarounds to keep going into the game.
