The Redcap skin is available for players who successfully complete all tasks with a referred friend.
Fortnite Refer-A-Friend 3.0 is your chance to earn some free rewards and bonuses by completing certain tasks with friends you have referred in Fortnite. Eligible referrals include new or returning players as long as they have not played more than two hours of Battle Royale in the last 30 days. The Fortnite Refer-A-Friend 3.0 is live until January 9, 2024.
What is Fortnite Refer-A-Friend 3.0?
The Fortnite Refer-A-Friend is your opportunity to win some cosmetic skins such as the Redcap skin by showing your friends the joy of Fortnite Battle Royale. It doesn't need to be completely new players, but it could simply be existing players who haven’t touched the game in a while. So go through your friend list and get some old-time players back into the game.
There are some conditions for which accounts can be eligible for referrals. For an account to be counted as an eligible referral, it should fulfill the following criteria:
- Played less than two hours of Battle Royale or Zero Build - Battle Royale in the last 30 days
This includes completely new accounts as well as returning accounts. It doesn’t matter as long as they fulfill the criteria above.
How to get free Redcap outfit in Fortnite
There is a free Redcap outfit for users who complete the Refer-A-Friend 3.0 challenge. The other rewards include the following:

To get the free outfit, you need to complete the following steps:
- Log in to your Epic Games account by clicking here.
- Choose Eligible Fortnite players and connect with them
- Complete in-game tasks together to earn in-game rewards.
What are the tasks?
The tasks may vary depending on different accounts, but some of the commonly reported tasks include:
- Create a Connection
- Reward: Redcap's Revenge Spray
- Play 1 match of Fortnite with your selected friend
- Reward: Wild Redcaps Wrap
- Place top 10 in Fortnite six times with a selected friend
- Reward: Portable Portobello Back Bling
- Eliminate 45 opponents in Fortnite with a selected friend
- Reward: Shiitake Slasher Pickaxe
- Gain Cumulative 50 Account levels with the selected friend

The final task might be a bit confusing due to the wording used. Both players, the referrer and the referree required to get 50 Account levels to complete this task. It is only when both players complete this task that both of you get the Madcap skin. You can invite up to five eligible friends to play Fortnite and participate in the Refer A Friend 3.0 challenge.
Hopefully, this also answers your question of whether ‘Is Fortnite dying’. The answer’s no.
