If you’ve signed in and received a blank page full of nothing, it appears that this is just a harmless glitch and unfortunately nothing more. While it’s always nice to get a free item or reward from Epic Games or even your friends, a glance in your locker will show that no item corresponds with this particular glitch and that you didn’t receive something.

While this is unfortunate, this glitch doesn’t affect your account or cause any harm so you won’t need to worry about your profile getting banned. Make sure to ask any of your close friends if they meant to send you something on Fortnite because there is a very small chance that it was a legitimate item that just didn’t show up as expected and they may need to open a dispute with Epic Games regarding this.

Many social media users are reporting the same glitch, so you’re not alone. Just continue with your Fortnite session as to be expected, and do your best to take down Peter Griffin and steal his Medallion to get closer to finally securing a Victory Royale. Be sure to check your weekly quests and complete them all before the season comes to a close.

As they say, if you can’t beat Peter Griffin, you may as well become Peter Griffin with our helpful guide. Be sure to check out our Fortnite section below to learn more about the game, and find out some helpful tips and tricks that’ll help you become a master of this Battle Royale.
