Step 1: Log Into Your Epic Games Account

To change your display name, you’ll need to log in to your Epic Games account. Enter your email address and password to do so.

Step 2: Select “Account”

Once you’re logged in, click on your profile icon in the top right corner of the screen and select “Account” from the drop-down menu.

Step 3: Click on “Account Info”

This should be the first default tab you see, but if it isn’t, click on “Personal Info,” and you’ll see “Account Info.” Click on “Edit” (the blue square with a pen inside) next to your current display name.

Step 4: Enter Your New Display Name

Once you click “Edit,” you’ll be prompted to enter your new display name. Enter your new, awesome name and click on “Save Changes.”

And that’s it! Note that the above steps will only change your display name on the PC version. In order to change the display name in Fortnite on consoles, you have to change your Xbox Gamer Tag or PSN Online ID.
