Epic Games has recently introduced a new program, ‘Reboot a Friend’ in Fortnite, and new cosmetics and many new features. Reboot a Friend is still in its budding days and is released only in Brazil and Italy to test whether the users like the new program or not. But if the team gets a good response about the Reboot A Friend, it will be released in other countries.
‘Reboot a Friend’ is a type of program where players are awarded cosmetic items if they play with friends who have not played Fortnite for a long time. ‘Reboot a Friend’ is in its testing stage, but the company plans to release it worldwide on December 14, 2020.

‘Reboot a Friend’ provides the player a golden chance to return to the game. One of JadedDrama post on Reddit where he explains how to get these cosmetics reads as:
“A new ‘Reboot A Friend’ program, where you play games for rewards. The rewards here are a reboot emoticon for playing one game, the critical change music pack for 5, the twin falcons pickaxes for 10, and the holofoil wrap for 20. NOTE: This is currently being tested for Italy and Brazil, so you probably won’t get it.”

Reboot A Friend allows the player to re-enter the game after being killed with reboot vans. So, to reboot your dead friend in the game, you need to install the latest version of the game. Reboot vans look like ordinary buses with some accessories attached to wheels and can be easily spotted all over the map.
Reboot vans work only in squad mode. Dead players can get back to the game using reboot cards dropped by them. Reboot cards are active only for 90 seconds. Once you have got this card, then you need to search for reboot van to get your dead teammate back into the game, but this rebooted player has limited accessories like:
- Health- 100
- Common Pistol-1
- Woods- 100
