This glitch has been around for a while now and thought I would share it with you guys. If you haven't heard of this glitch already, it involves you dropping your internet connection just as you try to purchase the Save The World edition of Fortnite. If you follow the tutorial below correctly, you will be able to play Fortnite: Save The World for free until you close the game.

Things to do before beginning:
- Make sure to have your Settings app opened and hovering over Network -> Network Settings.
- Make sure your console is connected via WiFi and not an Ethernet Cable.


Step 1: Load up Fortnite as you would normally and select Save The World instead of Battle Royale.
Step 2: Click 'Learn More' and then the 'Fortnite Standard Founder Package'

(The following steps need to be very fast or you will fail)
Step 3:
Press 'X' to purchase the game.
Step 4: Instantly press your middle button after pressing 'X' and navigate to your settings app.
Step 5: Click 'Network Settings' and then click 'Go Offline'.
Step 6: As soon as you are able to, click 'Go Online'.
Step 7: Press 'B' until you go back to Fortnite where you will be greeted with an error message.

Step 8: Continue to click through the error messages until you see an 'Xbox Live Purchase Check' error message.
Step 9: If you didn't get a Purchase Check error, you failed to do the glitch properly, if you did, then you are good to go.
Step 10: Press 'A' to accept the Purchase Check error message and then it will bring you back to the 'Save The World' menu screen.
Step 11: Press 'B' to take you back to the main menu and then once again click on 'Save The World' and it will load you into the StW game.
Step 12: Enjoy being able to play Fortnite Save The World for completely FREE.

You have to turn your WiFi off as soon as you press 'x' to purchase. If you're not fast enough it will throw you the wrong error message.

You have to confirm the purchase or put your password in depending on how strict your settings are for your account/console. If you're doing the glitch correctly, you shouldn't have to worry about this issue.

alright it hasn’t been an issue but I cant get it to work because when I hit the dash button it closes the sidebar then I have to hit it again to get the side bar to reopen so I can go to settings

How strange. When I press my Xbox button it always displays the side bar for me. Then I simply scroll down to my Settings app and turn my WiFi off.

Same except for the exact moment I am losing purchase and hit it, it opens then closes and I have to hit it again

That will be the purchase menu forcing it to close, if you get the timing perfect then you shouldn't have that problem.

Are you sure this isn't patched? I've tried so many times, can't get it to work.
 
Just got it to work, never mind! Timing is difficult to do but it definitely works!

I tried last night to get this to work and I couldn't get the timing down. Got home tonight went to play on a different Xbox. As soon as the game loaded to the title screen I had the purchase error and was able to play save the world. No trying to buy it or disconnecting my internet and I had the purchase error. Don't know what I did but I was able to play save the world.

Just to clarify I was able to play for free again today. Didn't have to do anything, my wife was watching tv on the fire stick, and I just loaded the game and got the purchase error.
I'll try to do it again when I get home to get more verification for you guys.

Edit: Couldn't get it to work tonight...

Do you wait for ur console to be connected to internet again to return to fortnite or go instantly?
 
Edit: because if I go to fortnite instantly from doing it it closes the game and says I need an internet connection

I don't believe it works on PS4.
Would be nice to find one. I am so desperate. I want STW before it comes out to everyone else. All methods online are xbox.
