Epic Games brought many impressive new additions to Fortnite Season 5. Now they’ve announced a new program that lets you earn free cosmetics by inviting some of your friends back in the game.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 has been out for a couple of weeks, and it brought various new weekly challenges, cosmetics, as well as Quests. There have also been numerous crossovers with The Mandalorian, Halo, God Of War, and The Walking Dead. There still a plethora of content that’s yet to be revealed.
Needless to say, this is an ideal time to jump into the Battle Royale and to have your friends join you. Epic Games has come out with a new promo to incentivize you to play with your friends. Starting December 14, the Reboot a Friend Beta will go live.
The promo gives you a chance to win brand new cosmetics for playing Fortnite Season 5 with friends that haven’t logged in for some time. Here’s how you can participate in this program.
How to participate in the Reboot a Friend beta
To take part in this program, you need to visit the Reboot a Friend website. From there, log in with your Epic account and invite friends who have not played Fortnite for a while. The friend you pick will be the one you play with.

You can only select friends who haven’t played for 30 days. They will then become the Lapsed Players and be your partners in the different matches you jump into. You can check the site to see if you have any friends ready to be rebooted.
At the moment, you can only choose one “rebooted” friend to play with. Right now, the program is still in its beta stage, so this might change. Pick whomever you’d like, and then both of you will unlock rewards after playing together.
What prizes you win is dependent on the number of games you two play together. You are only eligible for these winnings if you play matches with the Lapsed Player. Here are the different tiers of rewards available:
- Level 1: Play one game to receive a “Reboot” in-game emoticon.
- Level 2: Play five games to receive a “Key Change” in-game lobby track.
- Level 3: Play ten games to receive a “Twin Talons” in-game pickaxe.
- Level 4: Play twenty games to receive a “Holofoil” in-game wrap.
If you and your friends unlock these awesome cosmetics, they will be issued to your account within 7 days. You will both get the same rewards for playing together.
This is a great way to encourage players to get back into Fortnite for the new season if they haven’t already. Having your buddies around to help with Quests and Bounties can make things much easier for you.
The promo is still in its beta stage as Epic Games are still testing things out. This means that the program will go through some changes in the near future. You can use the Reboot a Friend Beta from December 14, 2020, at 3 am ET through January 4, 2021, at 3 am ET.

Week 9 of Fortnite Season 7’s Legendary Quests tasks players with placing a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome, so here’s how to complete the challenge for a massive XP boost.

Fortnite Bioscanner locations
- In the garden of the western house, directly south of the large tree
- In the outdoor section of the Garden Center, on the east side
- In the garden of the southeastern house, beside the three trashcans
Fortnite’s Alien Biomes can be found in Holly Hatchery, marked by the glowing bubbles around the houses.
The Fortnite Bioscanner will already be marked on the ground for you already. You simply need to approach it and press the interact button to place it. Place one, and you’ll be awarded 30,000 XP towards leveling up and completing the Battle Pass.
This is a substantial amount of XP that will help you level up this season’s Battle Pass, so players will be wise to complete this challenge.
Expect Holly Hedges to be busy when these challenges go live, so either land directly on the Bioscanner or rotate to the location later in the game, as you are sure to run into plenty of enemy players who will be trying to complete this challenge to place a Fortnite Bioscanner in an Alien Biome as well.
