Fortnite ‘Ready Up’ button missing
Several Fortnite players (1,2,3,4,5,6) are now complaining that the ‘Ready Up’ button that is supposed to be available after Battle Royale matches end has been missing or unavailable for the past few days.
Anyone else’s ready up button missing after a match? I have to load back to main lobby and ready up from there. It wasn’t doing that this morning…
I’m having an issue where I can’t ready up for any match and it says that br is disabled, I’m missing out on playing with my friends, I’ve restarted my game multiple times and it doesn’t work
The Ready Up option often helps players prepare for a match when they are in the lobby or matchmaking screen. They are now compelled to return to the lobby and can only ‘spectate’ because the button is no longer present.
Players have also tried restarting the game multiple times but to no avail. They are now only waiting for the next patch to arrive.
Fortunately, the developers have addressed the issue and state that the Ready Up button in Fortnite is missing or unavailable because of the changes that are currently being made to the game.
It is, however, expected to be reinstated with future updates. Although no ETA for the same has been provided.
We’ll keep tabs on the latest developments and update this article accordingly.
