You can now earn free Fortnite cosmetics as part of the new mini-event.
You surely know all those community initiatives where you get free items. Yes, this is one of them.
Interestingly, this time it is really good. Not only is there graffiti, but also a wrap and a pickaxe.
What, how and where?
Epic has provided a special page where you can sign up. The whole event is fairly simple. From the official announcement:
- It’s all about quality time with your friends! After registering your Epic account on this site and logging in, you’ll receive points for time played with a friend on your Fortnite friend list.
- Team up with anyone on your Fortnite friend list! Earn unlimited points together in Battle Royale (Duos, Trios, Squads) and earn up to six more points daily by playing in Creative.
In order to unlock rewards, you must earn enough points with a single friend. Can’t make schedules work with a friend and unlock all the rewards? Don’t worry, you will still have an opportunity to reach your goal by accruing the necessary points with any other player on your friend list during the challenge period.
In terms of points:
- Every 10 Minutes Played Together in Battle Royale = 1 Point
- Every 10 Minutes Played Together in Creative = 1 Point (maximum of 6 points per day)
- Bonus: During your selected 60-minute Daily Bonus you will receive a 3X bonus for your time spent playing Fortnite (i.e., every 10 minutes played together = 3 points).
Best Friendzy begins Tuesday, August 31 at 5 AM EDT and concludes Monday, September 12 at 4 PM EDT.
You can join on the official website:
You scroll down and select the big pink “Get Started” button. It is worth mentioning that the items may end up in the store later. Epic himself writes:
While we are debuting new Fortnite cosmetic items for the Best Friendzy rewards, they are not exclusive. They may be made available (for purchase or otherwise) at a later date.
