How to Install Fortnite on Android Phones

Tough Luck for Fortnite Lovers as Fortnite Battle Royale Unavailable on Google Play

Tough Luck for Fortnite Lovers as Fortnite Battle Royale Unavailable on Google Play

Many Android fans argue that the installation process leaves users vulnerable because it forces them to allow apps from "unknown sources".

As Fortnite is still in beta on Android, Epic Games isn't prepared for the large number of Android players that would jump into the game if it was available for everyone.

After the success of Fortnite on Apple's iOS platform, everyone simply assumed that Epic Games would take the opportunity to roll out Fortnite for Android users via the Google Play Store as soon as it was sure that its servers could handle the exponentially increased load. Once that's on your device, you'll be able to download the Fortnite app to your phone or tablet.

It was nearly three weeks ago that Fortnite fans caught wind that a new sniper rifle weapon was nearing release, with Epic Games finally confirming its impending arrival today. However, it arrived in a way that nobody expected - being exclusive to Samsung devices initially and to be made available as a non-Google Play download.

Once the APK file is installed, it will install Fortnite on your device.

The message appears to be new and unique to Fortnite searches-looking for other popular titles that aren't available on Google Play and/or Android phones doesn't result in the same warning. 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. From there, search for Fortnite and download the installer.

Then you should be able to request an invite to the Android beta and, if successful, you will recieve an email asking you to pre-install Fortnite on your phone. You'll either have to download the game through Samsung's Game Launcher or from Epic's website.

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.
