I have a problem with battleye

This is the error I get when attempting to run fortnite: Failed to initialize BattlEye Service: Driver Load Error (1053).

Fortnite/battleeye does not support Linux. And it likely never will according to Epic Games.


Is there anything I can do to get Fortnite running?
Also sorry for my terrible response time.

Play it from a supported platform.

Unfortunately I don’t have much experience, could you maybe specify a little bit more? Should I like launch it from a different launcher?

Idk why but I cant reply to you.

@Strit has been perfectly clear: Fortnite can not run on Linux.

But he said that I just need a different platform?

Sorry my bad just googled the meaning.

Yes, a platform that Epic officially allows Fortnite to run on. Windows, OS X… but not Linux.

While it is technically possible to run it with anti-cheat battleye, you risk to be banned forever, because fortnite does NOT ALLOW this on Linux because of reasons.
