How to Refer a Friend in Fortnite (2022)

To refer a friend in Fortnite, you first need to link your Epic Games account to the Fortnite referral website. Once you’re signed up, invite one of your friends to the feature using their username. Note that it has to be a relative Fortnite newcomer, meaning they need to have less than two hours worth of playtime.

Once they’ve accepted the referral, you have to complete in-game objectives with your friend in tow. They’re fairly in-depth and will likely take up a lot of time. For example, the final one is to rank up both of your accounts by 60 levels each, and that’s no easy feat. Eventually after you get through all of those tasks, you’ll find new rewards in your locker.

The front and center of the referral rewards is a new Xander outfit. On top of that you can also unlock two Back Blings, a spray, and a weapon wrap. For Fortnite completionists eager to get all the possible items, it’s definitely worth doing. You can repeat the referral process up to five times, though note that you’ll only unlock rewards the first time you do it. However, if you have a lot of friends new to Fortnite, it’s a good way to help them get some free cosmetics while you play.
