To put special characters in your Fortnite name, you need to copy and paste them in. Unless you know the keyboard shortcuts to special characters, you will need to copy and paste them in from a word processor or online. You can find databases of special characters on websites such as Wikipedia if you look for different written languages, for example. Once you have found the special characters you wish to add to your Fortnite name, simply copy and paste them in on the Epic Games website.

Follow these steps to find out how to put special characters in Fortnite name:

  1. Use a word processor program or find the special characters you want to use online
  2. Copy the special characters you wish to add to your name on Fortnite
  3. Head to the Epic Games website and log in
  4. Open the “Account” screen
  5. Click on “General” (this should be automatically opened on “Account”)
  6. Click on the blue box with a pencil image inside to edit your Display Name
  7. Enter your new Display Name (remember to paste in those special characters)
  8. Enter your new Display Name again to confirm the change

Hopefully, the special characters you used work and show up in-game on Fortnite. Once you have changed your Fortnite display name, you cannot change it again for two weeks. Alternatively, you can use Fortnite Fonts on LingoJam. Using this third-party website, you can enter your name in on the left, and on the right, a list of special character-infused versions of the name will appear in fonts that Fortnite should recognize. Copy and paste the fancy version of your Fortnite display name from here using the method detailed above.
