Fortnite Chapter 2: How to spectate your friends while waiting in a lobby

Fortnite Chapter 2 How To Spectate Your Friends

Everything you must know about how to spectacte your friends while waiting in a lobby for Fortnite Chapter 2.

Fortnite Chapter 2 has arrived following a black hole that gave birth to a brand new map with fishing, swimming and boat riding, as well as some hilarious memes. It has also seen the arrival of bots along with the much clamoured for ability to spectate friends while waiting in a lobby.

Although season 10 was a huge disappointment that had influencers threatening to quit the game for good, Fortnite Chapter 2 is a marvel that has finally made the Battle Royale title exciting again (even if Lady Gaga doesn't know what it is). Some of its best changes include pulling other players towards you with a fishing pole, swimming like a dolphin and being able to track your stats in the career tab.

In addition to the above, you can also now spectate your friends while waiting in a lobby.

How to spectate your friends in Fortnite Chapter 2

It's easy to be completely oblivious to the fact that you can now spectate your friends in Fortnite Chapter 2, which is why this Reddit post was an extremely helpful PSA.

The option to watch your mates while waiting in a lobby for them to finish their match is extremely good news as it gives you something to do other than twiddle your thumbs and pick your nose.

And fans are delighted to say the least.

In order to spectate your friends while in a lobby, they will need to have been in the game for over 30 seconds (you won't be able to spectate them before the drop). If that requirement is fulfilled then you can just click their name and choose to watch their game.

A caveat is that spectating takes a while to load and become more than just a black screen, but the biggest drawback is that you won't be able to spectate if there's a sole person in the lobby who isn't watching or playing.
