There is a feature called custom matchmaking in Fortnite. This feature was introduced some time ago. This one is the one that makes it easy for people to get into the same game or lobby in Fortnite Battle Royale. Without the custom matchmaking key, this feature is just a random thing who you are queued up with when you start a game of Battle Royale.
The custom matchmaking is aimed for streamers, content creators and competitive players. Each streamer is able to use it to have fun with viewers, while competitive players are able to practice in the same game and server. At the beginning, it was only used for bigger tournaments that were officially affiliated with both Epic Games and Fortnite. Then, a picked group of people from the support creator program got access, and later more people from the support a creator program were accepted.
Currently, the competitive players entirely use the custom keys for scrims and practice games. In the past, they had to try to get into the same games while doing scrims in the game by queueing up at the same time. Basically, custom games have made it a lot easier for professional and competitive players to practice and implement their own rules.
How to get access to custom matchmaking keys and custom games? Please take a note that the requirements might be subject to changes in the future. To be an accepted creator with a support creator code (Epic Games affiliate program) is the only requirement. Creators such as active video makers, artists, cosplayers, streamers, community builders, musicians, and storytellers who meet the following criteria.
First, they need to get more than 1,000 followers on at least one major social platform like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Mixer, Youtube, Twitch, and so on. Second, they complete the Affiliate Agreement and abide by the Creator Code of Conduct. Third, they are able to get the payment in a form that Epic Games supports (one of them is PayPal). Ones who are accepted into the program will get a support for creator code.
Talking about the custom match, there is a thing called a bot only custom match. This one is a casual way to play the Battle Royale version of Fortnite. For those who want to have some fun and play a bot only match without any human players at all, you will have to follow these simple and weird instructions that were shared by a Fortnite fan named u/Enframed. First of all, use the Custom Matchmaking feature or input the code TaborTime in Solo. This code is definitely not exactly intended. It will not work every single time, but it should mostly work. Feel free to give it a try and test your luck. Before trying this bot only custom match, you should remember that you cannot earn XP from these matches. Apart from that, your wins also will not count for your online total. However, it does not make it any less fun.
