Any player with a valid Epic account can participate in the Reboot a Friend. You must login and register on the website and invite eligible friends in order to participate.
The Reboot a Friend Beta is available from April 6, 2021 at 3 am ET through April 26, 2021 at 2:59 am ET.
There are four total rewards you can earn from Reboot a Friend. Those include the Reboot Spray, Heartbeat Wrap, Toxic Flash Glider, and the Plasma Carrot Pickaxe (2 variants).
These are not exclusive items. The rewards that are a part of Reboot a Friend between April 6 and April 26 have never been released before. However, at some point, they may be available for purchase.
Both invitees and those inviting friends can unlock rewards by playing games together. Rewards will be granted to your account within seven days of unlocking them through progress. Playing a game with a rebooted player earns you and that player 100 points. Every game after that is worth 10 points.
To reboot someone in Reboot a Friend, you’ll need to have friends on your Friend List who meet the program requirements. Most notably, only friends who haven’t played Fortnite for 30 days or more can be rebooted.
No problem! If you have no rebootable friends, you can still earn points by selecting any friend on your friend list as a squadmate. You’ll be able to earn 10 points per game with these friends. Note: you won’t be able to score the 100-point first-game bonus. You will also be unable to reboot friends even if they become eligible later.
No. If you have any eligible friends for Reboot a Friend, you must play with them in order to achieve points.
Yes, you can swap friends in and out of your Reboot Squad as long as you haven’t played any games with them. Once you play a game with someone on your reboot squad, they are locked on your squad for the campaign.
Your list of eligible friends is locked when you first log into the campaign website. Afterwards, adding or deleting friends won’t change your eligibility.
In the event that one of your friends passes the 30 day requirement during the course of the campaign, you will be able to reboot them.
You can reboot up to three friends at a time.
The prizes will be issued to all winners within seven days of unlocking them.
