How to download and install Fortnite on your Android phone

PUBG Mobile Lite

The first thing I did once Fortnite's beta went live for Samsung users yesterday was to look for a some kind of hack so I could play it on my Pixel 2. The beta version is only open to select players only after they've been invited by the developers to download the game. It was reported earlier today that Epic Games is anxious Fortnite will lose a chunk of its players in fall this year.

That doesn't mean those of you who don't favour Samsung's Android phones can't get in on the mobile action.

If you are frothing to get Fortnite for Android installed you will need to be sure that your phone can run it.

In a freakish twist, Google has instead recommended PUBG Mobile as a potential download for those who search for Fortnite in the store.

If you want to keep playing the big cat-and-mouse game, which involves modders trying to find workarounds to Epic's restrictions (while watching posted.APK files receive DMCA takedowns), that's on you. This is very likely to be automatically generated by Google's search algorithms, rather than any attempt on Google's part to direct potential customers elsewhere; the game was the top result prior to the announcement of the beta as well.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or a newer model, you can download Fortnite right now. You can't play the game until you get that invite code from Epic Games and there is no guarantee you will get a code. Mobile users are not precisely accustomed to using installers, but this is only something that "Fortnite Android" demands.

As you can see, the Heavy Sniper Rifle is a beast of a weapon, as it is able to blast structures of different kinds away easily.

Over the rest of 2018, Sensor Tower believes Fortnite will have gained at least $50 million in revenues that would otherwise have been paid out to Google.

According to Epic Games, the Heavy Sniper will be an Epic and Legendary weapon and will be capable of dealing high damage to structures and, of course, other players. The app will also be required for updates to the game on Android, just like it is on the Windows platform. An Android version is expected to release later this summer.
