There are times when, despite an online game’s success or popularity, something goes wrong and the servers bring up unknown errors, which force players out of the game. Fortnite is the latest game to face such error codes and players have since been complaining about the error.
Many Xbox and PlayStation Fortnite players especially have not been able to log into the game for over a day due to the red error message known as “esp-buimet-003.” The error tends to pop up on a player’s screen when they attempt to log into their account.
The error doesn’t quite pop up at once when you open the game, but when it does show up shortly after, players are unable to access the login box. Currently, the error is mainly prominent on console platforms and is not affecting PC and mobile users.
In this article, we’ll be telling you what the error code is and how to stop it in Fortnite.
So what’s the esp-buimet-003 in the first place? To answer, a lot of veterans in the game’s community have pointed out that the error is related to a network issue on the developer’s side.
The good thing is that Epic Games is aware of the problem and is working hard to fix this new and unknown error. The developers have acknowledged the problem via their various social media handles and are currently working on a viable solution to everyone affected.
Ultimately, the error code is related to a network issue, which the above tweet states is currently being worked on. Knowing Epic, they should have the problem sorted out and have the game up and running normal in no time.
