Fortnite Operation Snowdown Quest Guide


Winterfest 2020 Day 1 Quests

  • 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

We will be updating this guide as the new ones unlock each day, so make sure to check back if a future one is giving you trouble. There have been rumors about the rest of the quests, but everywhere seems to say something different so we'll only be posting about a quest once it has been officially unlocked. 

Having trouble finding the Snowmando Outposts? Check out the red snowflakes on the map below:


The Five Outposts are located:
  • West of Pleasant Park
  • South of Holly Hedges and West of Weeping Woods
  • Southeast of Weeping Woods
  • South of Catty Corner
  • Southeast of Steamy Stacks

For the Visit different Snowmando Outposts Quest, it doesn't matter which order you go to the outposts at, or which ones you open chests at. You just have to visit all 5 once. Same with the Search chests at Snowmando Outposts quest, the outpost you are at doesn't matter and you don't have to do one at each, just 5 total.

NOTE: There is currently an issue where sometimes the outposts simply will not load. Just finish that match, or quit out, and load a new one and they should be there. I had two matches in a row where they did not load, but then all of them were there in the next one. UPDATE: This seems to have been fixed!

Winterfest 2020 Day 2 Quest > Dance at Different Holiday Trees 0/5 - Snowmando Spray

Holiday Trees are located all around the Fortnite map this Holiday Season at these 6 locations.

  • Holly Hedges
  • Salty Towers
  • Pleasant Park
  • The Orchard (located north of the Colossal Coliseum)
  • Craggy Cliffs
  • Dirty Docks

To complete this Quest you just need to bust a move at 5 of these trees, making it an easy one to complete in any of the game modes to get you one step closer to the free skins.

Winterfest 2020 Day 3 Quest > Place top 10 with friends in squads 0/3 - Snow Steel Wrap

This one needs no tips or tricks, just grab a squad of friends, or talented strangers, and get winning!

Winterfest 2020 Day 4 Quest > Destroy Nutcrackers 0/5 - Blustery Bag Back Bling

You can find Nutcracker Statues at the following locations. Drop your marker at where the nutcrackers feet are and you'll land right next to them.


  • Sweaty Sands (1 statue on the western side of the trailer park.)
  • Lazy Lake (3 statues total, 1 in the northwestern corner and 2 in front of a building to the southeast)
  • Holly Hedges (2 statues in front of one house on the eastern side of this Holly Hedges)
  • Salty Towers (2 statues, both in front of houses, one to the west and one near the center.)
  • Pleasant Park (1 statue in front of the most northwestern house of Pleasant Park)

Just go up to five of them and destroy to unlock your new back bling! There are also even more nutcrackers hidden around the map too, but these are the easiest to find. We'd recommend doing this in Team Rumble for the fastest completion. 

Winterfest 2020 Day 5 Quest > Travel 5,000 meters in X-4 Stormwings 0/5,000 - Snowblaster Emoticon

There are still 5 Snowmando Outposts scattered across the map, as pictured in the map from Day 1. Drop down at any of those five locations, hop into one of the three X-4 Stormwings outside, and get flying! I recommend trying to stop by a rural gas station and grab a gas can to fill up the plane once it runs out. A full tank will take you roughly 3,000m. Remember, the outposts don't spawn in Team Rumble so sadly you can't complete this one in that mode. UPDATE: They do now spawn in team rumble!

Winterfest 2020 Day 6 Quest > Shoot down opponent structures with X-4 Stormwings 0/10 - Winter Wing Glider

Today's quest is definitely the most difficult so far, but not too hard to beat in a day's work! Similar to yesterday's quest, you can find the X-4 Stormwings hanging out beside any of the Snowmando Outposts. I'd recommend going to grab one and heading to whichever the most popular site nearby is, hopefully, you'll find some structures already built by your enemies and you can blast them away. Aiming in the X-4 Stormwings will probably be the trickiest part, so expect to have to do a couple loop-de-loops before breaking it down completely. 

Winterfest 2020 Day 7 Quest > Collect Gold Bars 0/100 - GG Fresh Emoticon

Hope you all had a fun 2 days of flying, today brings us back on the ground. Gold can be found all over the map by killing opponents, searching cash registers or safes, breaking ATMs, completing bounties or quests from NPCs in-game, and more. Just by playing a few games, you should be able to reach the 100 gold bars collected by the end of the day and be ready to complete one more quest tomorrow to unlock the Snowmando skin!

Winterfest 2020 Day 8 Quest > Catch a Snowy Flopper 0/1 - Toe Pick Harvesting Tool

In case you are wondering, a snowy flopper is a fish, so just pick up a rod and cast it in the water until you get that lucky catch! 

ALSO, today is the 9th quest, so if you've completed all of them until now you will unlock Snowmando just in time for Christmas!

Winterfest 2020 Day 9 Quest > Revive a player in different matches 0/3 - Merry Marauding loading screen

The easiest way to complete this one is definitely with friends. Go off to a place away from enemies and use fall damage to go down, have your buddy revive you, then have them do the same for you, and rinse and repeat for 3 matches! 

TIP: Me and my friends discovered that when a friend completes a quest, it counts for all of you in the duo/trio/squad, so if you are playing with 2 or more friends, you can each revive each other once and it'll count for all 3 even if in the same match. 

Winterfest 2020 Day 10 Quest >  Hide inside a Sneaky Snowmando in different matches 0/3 - Merry Fishmas Spray

Sneaky Snowmandos can be found hidden all around the map, so simply find one, throw it to the ground, hide, and do the same in 2 other matches! 

Winterfest 2020 Day 11 Quest > Play duo/squads with friends 0/5 - Frosty Globes Pickaxe Harvesting Tool

Another straightforward one today, simply play 5 duo/squad games with friends! 

ALSO, this is quest number 12, so if you've completed them all, you will also unlock the Frost Squad Skin!

Winterfest 2020 Day 12 Quest > Deal damage with the Lever Action Rifle 0/100 - Fish Fest Emoticon

Hope you've been practicing with the newest gun, though to be honest if you just find one in a Team Rumble match, with respawning you should be able to get to 100 damage dealt fairly quickly. 

Only one more quest left after today, will you complete all 16?

Winterfest 2020 Day 13 Quest > Stoke a campfire 0/2 - Confetti Wrap

And here we are, the final quest! Today's is one you can easily complete in 1 match, just collect some wood, stoke 2 campfires, and you have successfully completed Operation: Snowdown! Snowmando would be proud!
