The past week has been a harsh one for Epic Games as they have been fixing multiple Fortnite issues encountered by players across different platforms. One of the latest problems that stopped players from playing Fortnite was “Application has Hung” and the “Application has encountered an unrecoverable error.” In our guide, we will talk about how to fix the Application has Hung error in Fortnite?

The “Application has Hung” and the “Application has encountered an unrecoverable Error” are two of the new errors that Fortnite players encountered on July 7th, 2022. To fix the issue, you can update Fortnite to the latest version as the devs released a maintenance patch on July 8th that fixed the majority of the issues.

While the error was encountered by only a smaller portion of the Fortnite community and not all—we found that “Application has Hung” or the “Application has encountered an unrecoverable Error” had something to do with the game’s new cheat engine. 

Now, of course, we are not game devs, and we cannot explain the exact reason for the error. We do recommend you wait till the issue is fixed from the Epic Games’ end. Since it is a bug from the developers’ end, basic troubleshooting like updating game drivers, re-downloading the game, and other such methods won’t help.

Also, at the time of writing this article, most of the issues that players were facing on GeForce Now, Mobile platforms, and with the different game modes of Fortnite have been fixed. While there is no official and direct update on the Application has Hung issue. The developers did release a maintenance patch that has fixed the majority of the issues faced on the PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Mobile platforms. 

Keep an eye on Fortnite’s official Twitter handles, including the main one and Fortnite Status, for updates on any known issue. 

Fortnite is a free-to-play battle royale game currently available on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PC, and Classic Mac OS.
