Obtaining new skins is part of the fun of Fortnite, but they rarely come for free. Epic Games, on the other hand, is clearly feeling generous, as their new Refer A Friend scheme has just launched, offering free rewards to participants. The main attraction here is the Rainbow Racer Skin, which has been teased for quite some time, but there’s also a slew of matching cosmetics to be unlocked, such as a Glider, Pickaxe, Weapon Wrap, and even a Rainbow Racer Loading Screen. This new Refer A Friend scheme launched on October 25, 2021, and players only have a short window of time to sign up. It is not to be confused with Reboot A Friend, which ran in early 2021.

How to sign up for Fortnite Refer A Friend

Here’s how to sign up for the Refer A Friend scheme in Fortnite:

  1. Visit the new Refer A Friend website.
  2. Log in with the same Epic Games account you play with.
  3. Invite an eligible Friend to the Refer A Friend scheme.
  4. Wait for that Friend to accept your invite.
  5. Complete challenges with that Friend to earn free rewards.

To be eligible for the Refer A Friend scheme, a Friend must have played less than 120 minutes (three hours) of Fortnite Battle Royale in the previous 30 days, or be an entirely new player. Sign up for Fortnite’s Refer A Friend programme before November 14, 2021. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll have until January 10, 2022 to complete all of the challenges and earn the free rewards.

All of these challenges must be completed in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode in Duos, Trios, or Squads. That means you can’t progress in LTMs or by yourself – except for the final challenge. If you and your friend want to complete the final challenge and earn the Rainbow Racer skin, you and your friend will need to stay committed to Fortnite for a long enough period of time to gain 60 levels, which could take months. Players have until November 14, 2021, to sign up for the Refer A Friend programme and until January 10, 2021, to complete all of the challenges.
