How to earn free Wrap, Pickaxe & more with Fortnite Reboot a Friend promo

Fortnite is offering a free pickaxe, wrap, emoticon, and music pack with their ‘Reboot a Friend’ promotion. Here’s how it works.



Fortnite Reboot a Friend

Fortnite players can earn free cosmetics by inviting some of their friends back to the game.

Fortnite Season 5 might be the best season of Chapter 2, improving the already great groundwork laid by Season 4. Players are flocking back to the game, and Epic are encouraging them to tell their friends about the experience.

The developer announced the beginning of the Reboot a Friend promotion, starting on December 14.

This promotion gives players a chance to earn a free wrap, pickaxe, emoticon, and music pack for playing Fortnite with friends who haven’t played in a while.

The promotion only applies to players who haven’t been on Fortnite for at least 30 days. If one of your friends skipped Season 4, then now’s a great time to bring them back.

The rewards are based on how many games you play with your friend, so make sure you’re doing well. The tiers break down like this:

  • 1 Match: Reboot Emoticon
  • 5 Matches: Key Change Lobby Track
  • 10 Matches: Twin Talons Pickaxe
  • 20 Matches: Holofoil Wrap

The promotion will run until January 4, and we don’t expect this to be the last we see of Reboot a Friend. Based on Epic’s phrasing of the event, they’ll be adding something like this to each Fortnite season.

Fortnite X Horizon Zero Dawn skin & LTM coming soon

A new Fortnite leak reveals that Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn will be coming to Fortnite Season 6. Here’s how to get the skin for free.



Fortnite Horizon Zero Dawn

Fortnite is teaming up with Sony once again to bring another fan-favorite character to Fortnite: Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.

Epic Games have been turning up the crossovers for the past few seasons. They began focusing on crossovers in Season 4 with Marvel, then continued to expand the universe in Season 5. Now, we’re into Season 6, and nothing seems to be slowing down.

In the v16.20 patch, data miners found the next character that will be added to the Fortnite world: Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.

How to get the Aloy skin for free

Aloy will be available on all platforms when she comes to the Fortnite Item Shop, just as Master Chief and Kratos were available to everyone. PS4 and PS5 players will have a chance to earn the skin for free, however.

Sony and Epic are hosting an exclusive Aloy Cup for PlayStation players, with the top-performers earning the Aloy and Horizon Zero Dawn skin bundle for free. The tournament will take place on April 14. Aloy will likely come to the Item Shop soon after the tournament.

Team Up! Aloy & Lara LTM

Fortnite Horizon Zero Dawn

Aloy will be teaming up with Lara Croft for an LTM when she enters the game. It will be a duos mode, and will mostly focus on the Bow and Dual Wield Pistols.

One player will be Aloy and the other will be Lara Croft. Naturally, Aloy will have a Primal Bow and Lara will have two pistols. This event will begin on April 16 and will run through April 18.

We’ll keep you posted if any other details come out about this crossover. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL.

Fortnite is hosting the Spring Breakout Cup this week. Find out how to earn the Webster Outfit for free by competing.



Fortnite Spring Breakout

Fortnite is hosting another tournament that offers players a free skin as a reward. Here are all of the details you need to know.

Fortnite Season 6 is here and is hosting the season’s first tournament. Epic announced the Spring Breakout event starting on March 30, with a chance to earn the Webster Outfit and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling for free by competing in the Spring Breakout Cup.

Here’s everything you need to know about the tournament, how to enter, and what placement you need for the free cosmetic set.

Fortnite Spring Breakout Cup


The Spring Breakout Cup is a Duos tournament that will replace Friday Night Bragging Rights on April 2. It will follow the same format as other Duos tournaments in the recent past.

As was the case with a lot of other cosmetic tournaments, only the top teams in each region will earn the Webster Outfit and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling for free. Here’s where you need to place in each region:

  • Europe: 1st – 1,125th
  • NA East: 1st – 575th
  • NA West: 1st – 250th
  • Brazil: 1st – 250th
  • Asia: 1st – 125th
  • Oceania: 1st – 75th
  • Middle East: 1st – 100th

Players will have three hours to complete ten matches to place as highly as they can. Even if you’re not interested in the free skin, it’s worth your time to use this tournament in practice if you’re a competitive Fortnite player. As always, players need to complete Epic’s 2FA to compete in the event.

Fortnite Crew Pack themes explained by this fan theory

The Fortnite Crew Packs may be following the themes of previous Fortnite seasons, according to this fan theory.



Fortnite Crew Pack Theory

The relatively new Fortnite Crew Pack seems to offer a random skin each month, but what if the skin selection isn’t exactly random?

The Fortnite Crew Pack was introduced at the beginning of Season 5, at it was immediately a hit. For $11.99, players gain access to the current Battle Pass, a skin, additional cosmetics, and 1,000 V-Bucks.

Even if you’re not a fan of all of the Crew skins, the Battle Pass and V-Bucks, alone, are worth the $11.99 monthly fee.

Since the subscription service was first released, players anticipated the new skin that was announced ahead of the coming month. A new theory, however, suggests that these skins might not be as unpredictable as we thought.

Fortnite April Crew Pack Alli

We’ve now seen four Crew Pack skins with a fifth on the way. A Japanese Fortnite news account, FortniteJPNews, put the five Crew skins together with old Fortnite seasons. Sure enough, they fit like a glove.

The first skin, Galaxia, fits the space theme of Chapter 1 Season 3. The second skin was Green Arrow, which fits the superhero theme of Chapter 1 Season 4. The same is true for the three latest skins as well. They all fit into the following three seasons.

Now, what can we expect from the May Crew skin based on this information? Well, the major theme of Season 8 was pirates, so we could see a pirate skin come to the game next month.

Fans hope that the most popular skin from Season 8 makes its way into the Crew Pack, however. Peely was released in Season 8, which means we could see a Peely variation come as a Crew skin in May 2021.

Of course, this is only speculation, but it makes a lot of sense. We expect Epic to continue to follow this trend until they run out of seasons. We’ll update you when we get official word on what the May Crew skin will be, but we probably won’t know for several weeks.
