And all you have to do is play with a friend!
Fortnite’s ‘Reboot a Friend’ Event Gets You Free Items!
A new event starts today in Fortnite, and Epic Games have prepared some cool surprises! The interesting thing about this event, though, is that you have to participate with a friend who hasn’t played Fortnite in over a month...
During the recent The Game Awards stream on Twitch, Fortnite players received a free drop. Those who were watching The Game Awards stream when the drop was activated, received the free Nebulaic Wrap in Fortnite.

Now, in a new post, Fortnite has revealed that players will once again receive free cosmetics when they play with their friends! Pretty simple, right? But there is a small catch...
The ‘Reboot a Friend’ Event!
In recent emails sent out by Epic Games, ‘Reboot a Friend’ was explained in detail. Players need to invite their friends into the game via the ‘Reboot a Friend’ website. Once they have invited their friends, and have played with them, they will unlock rewards for everybody on the team! The more playing together, the more rewards that are unlocked. These include the Double Claws pickaxe, and the Hologlanz paint job.
From today, December 14, until January 4, you have time to secure your rewards. You can participate and monitor your progress through the Reboot a Friend Fortnite web page.
The program is a great way to get old players back into the game. Fortnite is a game that doesn’t really follow a pay-to-win model, as items are purely cosmetic. So, giving away some sweet cosmetics simply incentivizes players to return to the game!
