Finding Fortnite Island Codes
Looking for a new Fortnite map to play on with your friends? While the feature hasn’t been rolled out in full just yet, Epic Games say the best place to find community-made creations and their Island Codes is through Reddit, YouTube, and Twitch. Your best bet for finding new Island Codes is likely not the biggest Fortnite subreddit (r/FortNiteBR) but instead the relatively small Fortnite Creative subreddit, which is already filled with wonderful player-made maps and games.
How to use Fortnite Island Codes
So, how do you actually load new Fornite Creative Islands? All you have to do is note the code you want down, load into Fortnite Creative, head to the Creative Hub, and look for one of the standard rift portals that signifies a featured Island. Stop before you actually wander into the rift portal and you’ll see an option to ‘Set Island Code’ by holding the E key. This will bring up a box like the one below:
Once you’ve input the code in the game will take a moment to find the Island and give you a short description of it so you can confirm it’s the Island Code you were hoping for. Then click the ‘Select Island’ button, which will close the box and change the rift portal so that it takes you to a new map rather than the featured Island – expect it to take some time to load in the new map.
A nice touch from Epic Games also means that any recently entered Fortnite Island Codes will be temporarily saved as favourites, allowing you to quickly travel to your most-played maps.
Once it’s all loaded you’ll see the full name and description for the Island Code, simply run into the Rift Portal and it will take you to the new map. However, if you actually want to play the map with your friends then you’ll need to open up your menu, go into the ‘My Island’ tab, and start the match through there.
