Rookie battle giant Fortnite expanded its reach by launching Nintendo Switch shortly after it was officially announced during Nintendo's E3 debut. It is free in the Eshop and has all the features of the versions for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (except for the cooperative mode Save the World, only Battle Royale). Fortnite on Switch lives within the same ecosystem as all other versions; As soon as you enter, Season 4 and the current weekly challenges are live. The Battle Pass is available, and grouping in groups works in the same way.
Although you can link your Epic account to the Switch version if you've been playing on PC, Xbox One or mobile to continue working on your progress, PS4 players stay in the dust. Sony is blocking the user from connecting cross-platform accounts, which also means that there is no cross-interaction between these platforms. This says more about Sony than Nintendo, but it's something that PS4 players should know for a long time, as well as those who want to play with their friends who have PS4.
Your performance will vary when you play with Joy-Con; Fortnite is a shooter after all. Weapons that require precise aiming, such as sniper rifles, are a bit more difficult to use given the limited range of movement of the Joy-Con analog sticks. Do not wait for movement controls to save it, as they have not been implemented. Owners of Pro Controller would not have to worry about this, of course. Otherwise, all controls of the use of a gamepad are significantly translated into Switch.

One of the most important differences that should be taken into account when playing in the Nintendo handheld console is that the frame rate has been hit, both on the platform and on the platform. Certain visual anomalies, such as the insertion of textures are remarkable, but do not affect the gameplay, as does the lower framerate. This makes shooting and building intricate structures more difficult to handle, especially when things get hectic. A PC can theoretically run an unlimited framerate and PS4 and Xbox One run at a speed of 60 FPS, and jump between those versions and the switch may be jarring for some players. In no way does this make Fortnite not playable on the Nintendo platform; the main game remains intact even if it is not the most optimal version.
Since Fortnite: Battle Royale is an experience exclusively for multiple players, you will need to be connected to the Internet all the time to play. And unfortunately, as noted above, the cooperative mode called Save The World is not currently available to Switch users.
For a more critical view of this tremendously popular game that has had tens of millions of players, be sure to read our official document. Fortnite: revision of Battle Royale. We had an idea that Fortnite would come to Switch even before E3, thanks to Chance The Rapper talking too soon in a hilarious tweet. Some other GameSpot staff members had impressions of Fortnite on Switch and can see their discussion.
