Fortnite is more fun with friends, and Epic Games is looking for ways to incentivize players to invite more of their buddies to the game. The developer launched the Refer a Friend 2022 program, allowing Fortnite fans to invite their friends to try out the game and earn rewards in the process.

Players can unlock a total of five cosmetic rewards through the Refer a Friend Program. While the first couple of cosmetics will be tied to easy challenges, the Xander skin may take some time to unlock.

How can you refer a friend in Fortnite to unlock the free Xander skin?

  • Head over to Fortnite’s official Refer a Friend website.
  • Log into your Fortnite/Epic Games account.
  • Invite your friends to play Fortnite.
  • Ask your friends to accept your invitation and create an account.
  • Once your friends log into Fortnite, invite them to a lobby and start completing challenges to unlock rewards.

Here are all the challenges that you can complete with your friends and the rewards attached to them.

  • Add a Fortnite friend – Double Draw spray
  • Play one game with your referee/friend – Immortal Oasis wrap
  • Place in the top 10 six times with your referee/friend – Oasis Wind back bling
  • Eliminate 45 enemies with your referee/friend – Oasis Wind pickaxe
  • Gain 60 levels on your own and wait for your friend to also gain 60 levels – Xander skin

You can start completing these challenges by inviting your friend from the referral program to a lobby and queueing up for a duo/trio/squads match. Only the last challenge can be completed alone.
