Season 1 of Fortnite Chapter 4 is coming to an end. As soon as Epic Games brings the servers to a standstill, most players will have to wait until they start downloading the Season 2 update. You’ll expect the file size to be huge, so you’ll need a good connection so you don’t waste a whole day installing new data.
The first tip is to use a wired Internet connection for faster download speeds. Streamers and professionals from Fortnite They always advise connecting the system via an ethernet cable, as it provides higher speeds and reduces delay and packet loss.
If you’re playing on Nintendo Switch or a mobile device, using the 5GHz frequency on nearby dual-band Wi-Fi will boost your normal 2.4GHz frequency.
Another trick is to turn on the Automatic Update option on your preferred platform. All you need to do to activate the option is to click on the three dots just below Fortnite, click Manage and you will see the Automatic Update option in the pop-up window. Be sure to turn it on, so the update will install on your device automatically while you’re away.
If you’re still facing download speed issues for your update, head over to your device’s internet settings. Locate the IPv4 settings and enter a custom DNS server address 184.108.40.206 in the Preferred and Alternate fields. DNS addresses connect users directly to domain names instead of IP addresses to prevent Internet lag and excessive service traffic.
Finally, close the background applications while you download the update Fortnite.
