There’s a Best Friendzy event in Fortnite, and it requires players to actually play with a friend. It’s not exactly great for folks that prefer going solo, but at least there’s free stuff.
Saddle up Fortnite players, because there’s a new event in town. The two-week Best Friendzy event rewards players with all sorts of in-game cosmetics for free. That’s right, players can now get their mitts on some cool new stuff without having to pay or purchase anything from the Fortnite Item Shop now! Ever since Season 7, Fortnite has been offering its players a wide variety of new content that they’ve been experimenting with. The best part is, it’s not exclusive to players who have the Battle Pass. A prime example would be the Imposters game mode that we all know is an Among Us rip-off at this point, and there’s the upcoming Island Games event as well. So just what can we expect for the Best Friendzy event? Let’s find out.
What is the Fortnite Best Friendzy?
The Best Friendzy event is a new time-limited reward system in Fortnite which requires players to team up with anyone on their friend’s list together to receive points. If you’re more of a solo player, it’s time to change things up if you’re looking to get the in-game cosmetic items, because they’ll only be available during the event and can’t be purchased in the Fortnite Item Shop. Plus, getting a Victory Royale is so much better with friends!
To begin with, players have to visit the official Best Friendzy website and follow the instructions that will be provided to their Epic Games account. Once that’s over, Fortnite will be able to track their progression. After registering and logging into the Best Friendzy website, they’ll finally be able to earn the rewards. Their friends don’t need to register for you to see your progress together, but they have the option to track their progress. One thing to note about the status of one’s point progression is that players ought to expect a delay of about 30 minutes when it comes to updating their points on the website.
Point Progressions in Best Friendzy
A player’s point progression is based on the time that they’ve spent playing Fortnite together with a friend. For every 10 minutes that they have played together with a friend in the Battle Royale mode, they get to earn a point. For every 10 minutes that a player and their friend play together in the Creative mode, they also get a point, but they can only earn a maximum of 6 points per day in Fortnite’s Creative mode. As a bonus, Fortnite will be giving out 60 minutes worth of Daily Bonus wherein players will receive a 3x bonus for their time spent playing Fortnite. This means that for the next hour, players get to earn 3 points for every 10 minutes instead of just a single point.
Reaping the Rewards
Remember those points that have just been accumulating? Well, there’s a use for them! All of the points count towards the four new in-game items that players can redeem. The very best of the rewards have to be grinded for, unfortunately. But at the very least, they look pretty cool.
For just 3 points, players can get an Outer Space Handshake Emoticon that they can flex to other opponents or players in Battle Royale mode. Then there’s also the Invasion Remix Track which they can get for 10 points if they’re looking to turn things up in the music aspect. Players weren’t too keen on Wraps before, but they slowly warmed up to the idea of using it for their weapons. The Life’s a Beach Wrap which can be purchased for 20 points is the perfect cosmetic Wrap to sum up how life has been for some gamers over the last couple of years. And finally, there’s the Aquari-Axe Pickaxe which looks like it’s made out of Jello. That one is the most expensive out of the four free items that players get, amounting to a whopping 50 points.
For those who are interested in getting the free cosmetic items that can’t be found in the Fortnite Item Shop, the rewards will only be available from August 31 to September 12, so act quickly! Players have to make sure that they play with friends that are actually part of their friend’s list and to make the most out of their 60 minutes worth of Daily Bonus if they’re looking to gun the Aquari-Axe Pickaxe.
