Players need to follow a series of steps to earn all the free rewards from the Reboot-A-Friend program in Fortnte. The series of steps are:

  • The player needs to head over to the official Reboot-A-Friend website and login with their Epic Games credentials.
  • Players will be able to see if they have any rebootable friends in their Epic Games' account.
  • The player needs to invite one of these rebootable friends and ensure that they are willing to go through 20 games of Fortnite.
  • After queueing into a game of Fortnite, the two respective players either need to be eliminated or stay alive till the end for the match to count as progress.

Given that every player has to complete 20 games before the event timer runs out, players can try eliminating themselves to complete a match. This can be done by either standing on an active grenade or by dropping down from a high altitude without the glider.

The various rewards available for players to earn from the Reboot-A-Friend program in Fortnite along with the stage at which they are available, can be found here:

  • "Reboot" in-game emote - After completing one match.
  • "Key-Change" lobby track - After completing five matches.
  • "Twin-Talon" pickaxe - After completing 10 matches.
  • "Holofoil" in-game wrap - After completing 20 matches.
