Fortnite Refer-a-Friend: How to Get the Free Xander Skin

Free stuff never fails in Fortnite

by Caleb Stultz


The refer-a-friend campaign in Fortnite is designed to get friends involved in the free-to-play battle royale game. You can earn this new skin by playing with friends who have not played the game in forever, as the news section of the game explains. Given the game’s age, it might be difficult to sell old players who have grown tired of the game on the idea that now it’s perfect and ready to play like the old times. But, if you do find someone who will play with you, you’ll be able to get a free skin, something very rare in a game where its entire payment model is surrounded by aesthetics and accessories. Here is how to get the free Xander skin in Fortnite.
