What is Ping in Fortnite? How can I view and download it?

Ping within a video game specifically refers to the latency present in a connection, more specifically between the video game and your computer. The term latency yes refers to the delay between what you see on the screen and what is sent to the server.

As you can imagine in multiplayer video games, having a low ping is highly recommended, as the actions you perform on the computer will have a shorter delay than on the server.



In relation to the country and the quality of your internet connection the ping will vary a lot, the most common being that in countries with a good connection this figure is between 0 and 50, while in other places where connections are not very good the figure will exceed that indicated above.
