"Fortnite" is now debuting a new rewards system that would give players exclusive freebies and prizes for playing with an in-game friend who has not played the action shooter game for a long time. While most "returning players" are rewarded on their own by various games, Epic Games have now allowed the possibility of a two-way honor system for gamers.
Epic Games have a lot of offers for gamers in the recent arrival of "Fortnite's" Chapter 2 Season 6 that has taken the theme of "Zero Crisis," which is also known as the biggest crossover event in the popular game. The battle royale has maintained a steady stream of fans and gamers, especially during this pandemic which has seen a lot of massive crossovers.
The Zero Crisis has invited a lot of popular names in the gaming industry to crossover with "Fortnite," especially with the recent arrival of Aloy from "Horizon Zero Dawn" and Lara Croft from the "Tomb Raider" series. However, this is not all that "Fortnite" has to offer as different items are up for grabs with their recently launched multiplayer initiative.
'Fortnite' Reboot a Friend
Epic Games has recently announced that it would be rewarding gamers with exclusive items from the game's shop if they can "reboot" a friend and make them come back to the game. This initiative would boost the game's multiplayer matches, along with the return of different players that have not been able to play for more than 30 days.

How to Reboot a Friend?
According to "Fortnite," the "Reboot a Friend" initiative would be available nine days from now, which is until next Sunday, April 26 to register. Users would need to use a web browser for this experience to continue, and log in via an Epic Games account that is connected to one's "Fortnite" with a list of intended friends to invite.
The landing page would show all friends that are eligible for the promotion and rewards, where users can choose and click on who to invite back. Additionally, players can choose up to three (3) returning friends for this venture, to earn more points to accumulate for a prize.
'Fortnite' Reboot a Friend Rewards
The first game with a rebooted friend guarantees 100 bonus points, along with 10 succeeding points whenever playing with a squad in the different modes of "Fortnite." Users can still earn points despite not having a rebooted friend, which would only work when playing with an invited friend in a squad, having only 10 points per game.
Rewards for Rebooted Friends:
- Toxic Flash Glider
- Heartbeat Wrap
- Plasma Carrot Pickaxe (two styles to choose from)
- Reboot Spray
Amidst this, Epic Games are still under heavy fire from a lawsuit that has ensued between them and Apple, particularly after the company has changed the payment system for "Fortnite" via the iOS application.
