How do I change my matchmaking region in Fortnite?

To turn on this feature follow the steps below:

  1. Select your player icon in the upper right corner to open the social panel.
  2. Select Menu (gear with hamburger menu) near the bottom of the social panel.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Click the gear icon at the top of the screen to open the Game tab.
  5. In the Language and Region section, locate Matchmaking Region, then click the arrow to select a new region.
    • Auto - Selects the region with the best ping.
    • (##ms) - The numbers display your ping to the servers in the selected region. The lower the ping, the faster the connection.
  6. Click Apply.

We recommend using Auto for the best connection. However, if you're still experiencing latency issues, you can try alternative servers to find which one offers you the best connection.
