Unfortunately in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1, Epic has removed the “Watch Game” feature option to spectate your friends’ match without joining their game. While this option was available to all players till the recent game update, many are wondering why this is not available anymore. We believe this is to fight the growing stream sniping cheats players are using.

So now the only way to spectate your friends Fortnite Chapter 3 is to join their lobby. Also, you can only do this after 30 seconds from the start of a match. And to spectate strangers you will have to get eliminated by them. Then you will be able to watch the game from their perspective. When you are part of an ongoing match, you will be able to spectate other surviving players too. Apart from all these, the only other way to watch a stranger’s gameplay is through Twitch or YouTube.


“Watch Game” was one of the most appreciated features from Chapter 2. We hope this feature is only not available now as Epic might be working on this feature to make it better than before. Hopefully, this feature will make a comeback in the future roadmap and is still on the pipeline.
