    Hi i set up a Microsoft account at xmas and added my son to play fortnite. What i didn't realise was he was using my account to play.

    Today i changed the setting on his account so he can play via his personal account connected to mine, but he has lost his skins and achievement that he got using my account.

    Can he transfer from mine to his, Mine is the primary Microsoft account and his add to the family.

    Hope i'am making since.

    Pretty sure they are separate, sorry.

    I was in the same boat (if I understand you correctly) - my son had been playing Fortnite under my Xbox account, when he started playing it under his own Xbox account he lost that progress.

    They released an Account merge option but when I tried it I could not get it to work between two Xbox accounts - either I was doing something wrong or it's only designed to merge accounts across different consoles.

    Is it not tied to your Epic account?

    This is funny. Are people that Caught up in this game. Seriously have people looked at the addiction issue that gaming now has.

    Iam having the same trouble, I am wondering would it be easier to start with fresh accounts.
