Are you coming here because you have notice that you get paired up with teammates that have an globe icon next to their name and wondering why do people have a globe next to their name in Fortnite?
Apparently, the globe next to their name in Fortnite is from v10.40 patch. Basically, it means the players on your squad or team in Fortnite Battle Royale or Fortnite Save the World are not in your part or Friends lists.
Aside from the globe or the earth icon, you may also have seen a Fortnite account with a computer icon next to their name. if the globe or earth icon means players on your squad or team are not in your part or Friends lists, what does the computer icon mean?
For your information, the computer icon next to name indicates the platform that person is playing on. For instance, if you see a computer icon next to the name of an account, it means that account is playing on the computer. If you are playing on Xbox One, the icon next to your name that people will see might be a controller. This kind of icon will appear when you cross play with someone. The reason is still unknown why it shows up in the game.
