Epic officially announced the next free items as a part of the new, or rather returning, event that’s supposed to encourage friends to play.
As we can read in the official statement:
Reboot a Friend is back! With the recent launch of Chapter 2 Season 6, now’s a great chance to invite your friends back to the fun and show them what’s new.
Between April 6, 2021 and April 26, 2021, earn free rewards by inviting and playing Fortnite with friends that haven’t played in 30 or more days.
What and how to get it?
There are several new items to get, including:
- Reboot Spray
- Heartbeat Wrap
- Toxic Flash Glider
- Plasma Carrot Pickaxe
How to get them:
- Get on the Reboot a Friend website
- Select up to three eligible friends that you want to restart
- Play with these friends to earn points and unlock rewards.
“Drop-in and join the fun to earn never-before-released items — for FREE! Note: these items may be made available to players elsewhere at another date. “
HOW LONG DOES AN EVENT TAKE PLACE?
The Reboot a Friend event will be available from 7 am on April 6 to 6:59 on April 26, 2021.
WHAT REWARDS CAN I GET?
You can earn a total of four rewards as a part of the Reboot a Friend event. These are Reboot Spray, Heartbeat Wrap, Toxic Flash Glider and Plasma Carrot Pickaxe (available in 2 versions).
ARE THOSE REWARDS EXCLUSIVE FOR THIS EVENT?
No, they’re not. The rewards to be won between April 6 and 27 as a part of the Reboot a Friend event have never been published before but may be sold in the future.
HOW TO GET THE REWARDS?
Both the invitee and the invitees can unlock rewards for playing together. Rewards are given to your account within seven days of unlocking them through your in-game progress. For playing a match with a rebooted friend, both players will receive 100 points. Then each subsequent match is worth 10 points.
WHICH OF MY FRIENDS IS ELIGIBLE TO REBOOT?
In order to reboot someone as part of the Restart a Friend campaign, you must have someone among your friends who meets the requirements. First of all, remember that you can only reboot players who have not played Fortnite for at least 30 days.
WHAT IF I HAVE NO FRIENDS WHO HAVE NOT PLAYED FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS?
No problem! If you don’t have rebootable friends, you can still earn points by selecting any friend on your list to the squad. For every game you play with these friends, you can earn 10 points. Note: You will not receive the 100 point bonus for the first game this way.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY FRIENDS LIST CHANGE?
The list of your eligible friends is saved the first time you log into the campaign website. Adding or removing friends later will not affect eligibility to participate in the campaign.
HOW MANY FRIENDS CAN I REBOOT?
You can reboot up to three friends at a time.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE REWARDS FROM THE EVENT REBOOT MY FRIEND?
All winners will receive their prizes within seven days of unlocking them.
