You go to their website, download and install it on your laptop. Just kidding! 🙂 Well, running Fortnite on a laptop may be sometimes tricky and can cause you quite a headache. This is because laptops are usually less powerful than desktop PCs. This means there may be quite a lot of graphics stuttering if the game is not configured properly. To avoid this, you first want to have the best possible laptop to run Fortnite on.
This game is very popular nowadays and lots of people ask me “Can I play Fornite on my laptop?” Yes of course, but…
Let’s first take a look at the minimum system requirements:
- CPU: Core i3 2.4 GHz
- CPU SPEED: Info
- RAM: 4 GB
- OS: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
- VIDEO CARD: Intel HD 4000
- PIXEL SHADER: 3.0
- VERTEX SHADER: 3.0
These requirements are quite low, but for a good gameplay way to low. In my experience on this kind of laptop, with this spec, it is just not worth to even install the game, trust me. You would just suck because the stuttering and lag would be just too much to be competitive. I tried it on my friend’s computer, I almost threw it to the wall :D.
If you want to run on a low-end laptop with as much smoothness as possible, you first need to lower the graphics details in the settings. This is, of course, the main approach if you have a low end PC. This game is using Unreal Engine, therefore it is recommended to have at least a graphics card within a GTX 900 series. But I recommend it to be of 1000 series.
How to make Fortnite run better on a laptop?
As I said before, lower your settings, clean up the OS, buy an SSD drive, or buy a new laptop. 🙂
Be good and have fun.
