The spectate feature in Fortnite allows players to spectate their friends even without joining the game themselves. With the latest Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1, many players are dropping into the island with their friends and the spectate feature is among the most demanded features, enabling you to watch your friends’ games and see how they play. Here’s how you can easily spectate in Fortnite.
How to Spectate in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1
Unfortunately, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 doesn’t have a spectate option for players looking to watch their friends match without joining the game. The feature was present in Chapter 2, where players could just click the “Watch Game” button to spectate others. However, the developers have removed the feature in Chapter 3 Season 1. This means that you can only spectate your team members in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1.
For this, you’ll need to be an active participant in the match, and after your death, you can watch how your team does for the rest of the game. It’s unclear why Epic decided to remove the feature in Chapter 3, but the spectate feature was surely popular amongst the community. There is a possibility that the developers might bring the feature back some time in the future.
