Reboot a Friend Fortnite: How to Get the Free Twin Talons Pickaxe
By Jack O'Dwyer
The Reboot a Friend program in Fortnite is giving players a free Twin Talons Pickaxe cosmetic just for bringing players back to the game.
Epic Games outlined their “Reboot a Friend” initiative in an e-mail sent to players in early December 2020. The company explained that both players will be able to earn unique rewards—including the Twin Talos Pickaxe—by bringing back their friends to play. The program is set to go live on Dec. 14 with its own redemption website.
Here’s everything you need to know about Reboot a Friend and your chance at the Twin Talons.
Reboot a Friend Fortnite Program
According to Epic Games, existing players will have the opportunity to invite pre-existing yet inactive players back to the game using a unique code that will be granted through their Reboot a Friend website. The website, however, won’t go live until the program does on Dec. 14 at 3 a.m. EST.
Once invited, both parties will earn exclusive cosmetic rewards just for spending time together in-game. For every certain number of matches played together, they will be rewarded cosmetic items including: Twin Talos Pickaxes, new lobby music, and Holofoil Wrap.
More information about the program can likely be found on Epic Games’ Fortnite news site within the coming days.
