Fortnite Refer-A-Friend Program: Earn Free Rainbow Racer Skin & More

Learn how you can earn free Fortnite rewards by participating in the Refer-A-Friend Program.

Fortnite's Refer-A-Friend Program is back, and it offers a slew of Rainbow Racer-themed in-game cosmetics. Previously known as Reboot-A-Friend, Epic Games incentivizes bringing a former Fortnite player back after 30 days of no account activity.

You might be wondering what's at stake if you participate in this revived program. Well, players who complete five predefined tasks with their referred friend can earn five rewards; a Loading Screen, Wrap, Glider, Pickaxe and Cosmetic Outfit.

Today, ESTNN explains Fortnite's Refer-A-Friend program to help you understand how to unlock all five rewards.

How to Participate in Refer-A-Friend

The Refer-A-Friend Program requires an active Fortnite player to bring an inactive player back to the game. Once you've completed that step, you and your friend can reap the five rewards offered in the program. However, there are some particular prerequisites you must meet before completing the Refer-A-Friend tasks.

“The “Referee” must have less than 120 minutes played of a core Fortnite Battle Royale game mode (i.e., Solo, Duos, Trios, or Squads) in the last 30 days (includes new players). “

You can participate as long as your friend meets the requirements above. It's worth noting you can refer up to five friends, but rewards are only earned by the “Referee” after the “Referrer” unlocks all items.
