Fortnite Winterfest is Back with Operation Snowdown

Fortnite Winterfest 2020 has officially begun with the start of Operation: Snowdown. Operation: Snowdown consists of 16 quests that you can complete between December 18 (Today) and January 5 to unlock lots of free locker items. To start off with here are the 4 unlocked quests and their free rewards:

  • Complete Operation Snowdown Quests 0/9 - Snowmando Skin
  • Complete Operation Snowdown Quests 0/12 - Frost Squad Skin
  • Visit different Snowmando Outposts 0/5 - Frost in Action Wallpaper
  • Search chests at Snowmando Outposts 0/5 - Shield Surprise Backbling

A new quest will unlock each day, starting tomorrow, December 19, for the next 12 days. The final one unlocking on December 30. Each of these quests will offer new rewards for all types of locker items. The free rewards include two new character outfits, Snowmando and Frost Squad, two harvesting tools, a winter glider, two weapon wraps, two blackbling, emotes, and more! To kick things off, you can pick up the Sing-Along holiday emote on the Item Shop now for free without doing any quests. And for players who bought the emote earlier in the season, Epic Games will refund the V-Bucks back into your account. And for players willing to splurge and spend money on V-Bucks, there will be a variety of new holiday outfits being added to the in-game Item Shop over the next two weeks. Feel free to check out our guide if you need any help with any of the quests as they come out. 

Alongside these quests and their merry rewards, Snowmando has also delivered lots of fun new items to make matches full of winter fun. They have brought back airplanes with a Snowmando custom X-4 Stormwing, which it seems will be making an appearance in some of the future quests based on leaked information. There are also Sneaky Snowmandos that you can carry around, toss to the ground and then hide in to sneak up on enemies. There are Chiller Grenades that will freeze whoever stands in the blast radius, and some throwable Snowmando-wrapped Presents full of loot. 

But that's not all! There are also some exciting Limited Time Modes being added to the game as well. There will be three rotating LTMs. The most anticipated one being Air Royale, with the return of planes this one just makes sense. Then there is the new Shockwave LTM, which introduces Smash Bros style mechanics to Fortnite, where you try to knock each other into the Storm as it shrinks around you, and Pickaxe Frenzy will be available for the first time as an LTM. Not sure which one you want to play first? You can select the Showdown Shuffle which will place you into one of them at random.
