Fortnite is one of the most well-known battle royale games where you can play different game modes with friends. Fortnite allows you to add friends in the game so that you can invite each other to play together. While it’s best to queue with a squad, there are instances when players want to play alone to avoid social obligations. So, players can change their account status to seem offline rather than rejecting teammate invitations. You won’t need to wait for invitations from your friends to play this way.
