How to Make Someone a Keyholder in LEGO Fortnite

In Short
  • Keyholders can access your LEGO Fortnite island even when you are offline and not in their party.
  • To make someone a keyholder, open up your map, navigate to the Players list, select the player you wish to grant access, and click the "Share Key" button.
  • LEGO Fortnite only makes a total of seven keys available to the players, so be mindful when sharing access.

Every LEGO Fortnite world you create is exclusive to you, just like Minecraft. You can invite your friends to explore the blocky world, but they cannot access it after you exit the game. To solve this issue, you can host Minecraft servers. LEGO Fortnite has adopted a slightly different approach to this and lets you make someone a keyholder in-game. What is a keyholder and how does it work? That’s exactly what we have explained in this guide, so let’s jump in and learn how you can make your friend a keyholder in LEGO Fortnite.

What is a Keyholder in LEGO Fortnite?

The first question that might come up in your mind is what happens when you make someone a keyholder. After all, other survival games don’t have something of this nature. Whenever a new LEGO Fortnite island gets created, the game provides players with keys.

These keys allow other players to stay on that island to explore even when the island creator goes offline. Moreover, you have the same amount of permissions as the island creator. While you are here, make sure to check out some of the best LEGO Fortnite seeds.
