Why can’t I reboot more than one friend?

We encourage you to play Fortnite with all of your friends, but for the purpose of this test, we’re limiting the program to one “rebooted” friend. If this changes we’ll let you know!

When will I receive my Reboot a Friend rewards?

You and your friends unlocked the rewards? Awesome! The prizes will be issued to all winners within 7 days.

When will Reboot a Friend come out of Beta?

We’re still testing things out, but stay tuned for new updates for Reboot a Friend in the future!
