New Fortnite account merge tool makes cross-play easier

Fortnite account merging is finally here
If you have duplicate 3rd party login like Facebook on both your Primary and Secondary account, the Secondary login will be unlinked. Being able to play against your friends regardless of what device they used has been one of Fortnite's strengths, but it made managing game resources sometimes more hard than it needed to be. And whatever progress or money you made on one account couldn't transfer over to the other. You also can not merge banned or suspended accounts.
There are a few qualifications that accounts have to meet in order to be merged, though; console accounts must have played on Xbox Live, Nintendo Online, or PSN before September 28, 2018 to be eligible. This was good news, but it also left a lot of players with two accounts and no way to combine any of the accessories, skins, weapons, dances and V-Bucks they'd separately accrued. One primary account must be selected and one secondary account must be selected. Then log into your account from another platform to merge it with your primary account. Save The World is slightly more limited: you can only merge Llamas, Defenders, Heroes, Schematics, Survivors, XP, Evolution, and Perk Materials.
Your account must not now be banned or disabled.
And it has taken many months to get the Fortnite account merger system off the ground.
To merge your accounts, simply go to Epic's Account Merge page and follow the instructions.
Select the account you want to keep (primary account).
Select the account you want to merge and disable (secondary account).
Sign in to the secondary account. This means that all the cosmetic items and V-Bucks that you've earned across platforms will be conveniently gathered in one place. Fortnite cosmetics and Vbucks will be moved for example, but other items like Unreal marketplace items and Save The World progress will not. Head to the Epic Games site to read the complete breakdown of what will happen, what will be kept, and what will be lost.
