How To Fix The Fortnite Esp Buimet 003 Error Code ?

Earlier this year, an independent advisor for Microsoft suggested the following ways you can fix the Fortnite error code ESP buimet 003:

  • Remove and re-add your account
    • Sign out of your account and remove it from your console; then you’ll need to go through the new user process to log in and add it back to your console.
  • Power cycle your console
    • By holding down the power button and unplugging it, you will need to wait two minutes before restarting it.
  • Clear local game saves and persistent storage
    • On PlayStation, this can be done by going to the Save Data and Game/App Settings and deleting the specific files you want to get rid off – Fortnite-related ones.
    • On Xbox, you can do this by selecting the “Clear Local Saved Games” option and the “Clear Persistent Storage” options from the Storage settings and the Disc & Blu-Ray settings.
