Fortnite Refer a Friend challenges
The Refer a Friend program has five challenges for players to complete with their referee for the five rewards that will be up for grabs. Some of these challenges will take longer than expected, so luckily players have a while to complete them.
- Add a Fortnite friend
- Play 1 Game with your referee/friend
- Place Top 10 6 Times with your referee/friend
- Eliminate 45 Enemies with your referee/friend
- Gain plus 60 LVLs on your own and wait for your friend to gain plus 60 LVLs too
Also, it’s good to keep in mind that you can complete the same task multiple times with different friends. However, rewards can only be earned once.

What is a referee in Fortnite?
A referee in Fortnite is someone who has been referred by a friend (the referrer) to take part in the Refer a Friend challenges.
The referrer and referee must play together to complete all of the challenges and earn the Xander Outfit and the rest of the rewards. But if you participate as a referee, you can’t be a referrer (and vice versa).
That’s all on Fortnite’s Refer a Friend program. Make sure you keep checking back on this page for the latest, and for more on Fortnite check out all of the NPC locations for Chapter 3 Season 3.
