Preliminary information

Fortnite Royal Victory Chapter 2

Before going into detail on the procedure on how to see the replays on Fortnite , I think you may be interested to know more about the functioning of the recording system implemented by the title of Epic Games.

Well, you should know that Fortnite automatically records all the games you play, so that you can show your friends (or your followers, if you are a streamer) your performances at any time. In this way, you can review the games and not miss even a moment, since the matches are recorded from start to finish .

The peculiar aspect of the Fortnite replay system is, however, the fact that not only your game is recorded, but also that of the other Battle Royale players who during the match were in an area not too far from your character (if you want to know more about the Battle Royale mode, I invite you to consult my guide on how Fortnite Battle Royale works ).

In any case, by accessing the replays you have a 360 degree view of the playing field and the techniques used by your opponents, which can be particularly useful for honing your skills. So learning how to take advantage of replays could give you a good competitive advantage.

However, this system is only available for Fortnite versions for PC , PlayStation 4 and Xbox One . In fact, on Nintendo Switch, Android and iOS this tool has not yet been made available. Furthermore, on PC the last 100 games are kept in memory , while on console only the last 10 . In order not to delete a replay from the system, it must be saved manually. Each movie weighs around 10MB .

I remind you that Fortnite is a game in constant evolution and therefore the developers could make changes to the replay system at any moment.

How to see a replay on Fortnite

Fortnite career

The first thing to do to learn how to see replays on Fortnite Chapter 2 , is to go to the main menu of the game, related to the Battle Royale mode .

At this point, simply move to the CAREER tab (for example, pressing the R1 button on the PS4 controller) and select the REPLAY item (e.g. the triangle button on the PS4 pad).

Here you will find the entire videos of your latest games: to play a replay, simply press first on the PLAY item below (using, for example, the X button on PS4) and then on the CONFIRM button that appears on the screen.

Once you enter the playback screen , the replay will start automatically from the beginning of the game, or from when the players are still on the bus and can only thank the driver . Well, as you may have already noticed, at the bottom there are all the buttons that allow you to manage the playback of the movie .

Fortnite game start

By pressing on the clock icon , which is on the left, you can activate the playback bar and go to a specific part of the replay, while using the buttons on the side, you can pause  and increase the playback speed .

Using the buttons next to the player ‘s name , which is on the right, you can instead switch from one user to another and see how he led the game. Clearly, in the “list” you will also find your username and then you can review your performance.

The eye icon is used to remove the buttons, in order to watch the replay in full screen . Next to it are the camera icon , which is used to change the type of view , and the + and keys , to change the speed of playback of the video. You can also open the map , using the appropriate button (eg the touchpad on PS4): here you will see the position of the players who were in the “replay area”.

To access the advanced settings , you need to press on the camera icon with a gear that you find just below the playback bar. From here you can choose numerous options, from the display of the players’ silhouettes to that of the effects of the storm , passing through the inclusion of the names of the players in the replay .

In short, Fortnite allows you to manage replays in an advanced way and now you know how to use the native tool implemented by Epic Games.

How to save replays on Fortnite

I remind you that Fortnite can automatically delete your replays, if they are not saved. My advice is to “keep in memory” only the best games, so that not too much space is occupied on the disc.

To keep a movie in memory, just press on the RENAME AND SAVE item present at the bottom right of the replay screen , located in the Battle Royale> CAREER> REPLAY path . After that, you will have to type the name of the movie and press on CONFIRM .

Perfect: in this way, the game will keep in memory the replay you saved until you decide to delete it manually. The unsaved movies are all called Unsaved Replay and therefore you will certainly not find it difficult to understand what are the contents that will be kept in memory and which are not.

Unfortunately, there is no native option to export replays outside the game. However, you may still think of recording the screen with the usual methods. In this regard, I recommend you take a look at my tutorials on how to record on PS4 and on the programs to record gameplay on PC .

Also, since you are interested in the title of Epic Games, I invite you to consult the page of my site dedicated to Fornite , where you will find many tutorials that might be right for you.
