Why am I receiving a Restricted Hardware Warning in Fortnite?

The use of hardware that provides, or is intended to provide, a competitive advantage is not allowed. When detected, players will receive an in-game warning. Players must remove the attached hardware device and restart Fortnite to continue playing.

Attempts to bypass this restriction will result in a permanent ban from Fortnite. Restricted devices include but are not limited to Cronus Zen and Cronus Max.

While we do not allow devices that offer a competitive advantage, we actively support accessibility devices such as the Xbox Accessibility Controller and its accessories, as well as the 3dRudder. Epic also provides several customizable settings in-game that allow players to adjust Fortnite gameplay to their specific needs.
