Learn how to use the Trident symbol (Ψ) within your own Fortnite username for some extra flair in the battle royale.
How To Get Trident (Ψ) Symbol In Your Fortnite Username

Odds are that you've seen some different symbols inside player names when you're spectating an enemy that just took you down in Fortnite. One of the most popular symbols you'll encounter is the Trident (Ψ), and as you might've guessed, you can't just use a normal controller or keyboard for it.

While it's odd to see these symbols inside of player names when you're sent back to the lobby, it's much easier to use than you might think. In this guide, we'll go over how to add the Trident to your Fortnite username with nearly no effort involved.

Fortnite - How to Add the Trident (Ψ) Symbol to Your Username

The Trident symbol is unfortunately reserved for a few platforms. Both Xbox and PlayStation players will have to sit this one out due to how the username system works on those platforms. However, Nintendo Switch, Mobile, and PC players can still pull this off for themselves.

Step one is to sign into your Epic Games account online. Once you log into the account, hover over your username at the top right of the screen and open up the 'Manage Account' option. Here you'll find your username with a blue box next to it. Click on the blue box to edit the name.

Below are the steps for adding the Trident (Ψ) symbol to your name:

  • Now that you have the name edit screen open, it's time to add the symbol directly to the bar.
  • Without a specific key available, all you need to do is copy the Trident (Ψ) symbol that you see here.
  • Simply paste the Trident symbol where you want it in your Fortnite username.
  • Make sure that it's the Trident you want or is arranged the way you want.
  • You'll be stuck with the name for at least two weeks, but if you're happy with it, go ahead and save the username.

There are all kinds of symbols you can do this with when you're copying characters in your Fortnite account. As long as the character registers as a symbol rather than something like a photo, it will likely register.

We mentioned consoles would have to sit out, but the Nintendo Switch gets a pass because the name you use on Epic Games is displayed there. So the Trident will still work.
