The Fortnite Friends List is often faced with a bug which can be a huge pain to deal with, especially in the event you are trying to invite a number of players to your party. And while the game has received a number of patch updates over time, certain glitches still exist. However, after a recent outage that started on Tuesday, there have been a number of reports from users who encountered a number of issues with the Friend List feature and other services. Here are a few reports:

Epic Games had tweeted earlier that users who had lost their friends from the Friends List need not worry as the list will be populated again once the issues were resolved. The company soon followed up with another tweet notifying users that all the issues related to logins, item shop, matchmaking, and other services were fully back up.

Please note that if your Friends aren't listed in your Friends List, they will be there again when these issues are resolved.
