The first seasonal event of Fortnite Chapter 3 has arrived and Epic has gone big for Winterfest 2021.

This year’s Winterfest event is now live, bringing weeks of festive Fortnite fun and winter-themed activities. Expect gifts, challenges and creative maps, as well as some new additions to the Battle Royale Island itself.

Spider-Man Outfits

As if a Battle Pass feature and in-game Mythic wasn’t enough, the Spider-Man: No Way Home celebration continues in the Item Shop. Arriving 7PM ET on December 16, the Spider-Man (No Way Home) and MJ (No Way Home) skins are based on the characters portrayed by Tom Holland and Zendaya in the new movie.

The Spider-Man (No Way Home) Outfit comes with both black and red styles, and includes a built-in Emote which allows you to remove his famous mask. Plus, the winning outfits from the community Concept Royale contest will be available soon too.

Gameplay & Unvaulted Loot

A handful of classic Fortnite winter items have returned to keep you on your toes. Harness the power of Chiller Grenades, Snowball Launchers and Sneaky Snowmen to send your enemies sliding towards an icy demise.

Get hold of some top tier weaponry by throwing down and opening Holiday Presents. Speaking of which, keep an eye out for Sgt. Winter. He’ll be touring the Island with a his Red-Nosed Rangers, chucking out Presents and spreading joy. Be warned however, he can quickly turn hostile if you misbehave.

Winterfest Gifts

Ho ho ho! The Winterfest Lodge is back and players can unwrap a fresh present every day for the next 14 days. As leaked in the recent v19.01 patch, among these gifts are the Krisabelle and Polar Peely skins.

You can also get your hands on a pair of Pickaxes, a couple of wraps, a Christmassy glider, Contrail, Emote, Spray, Loading Screen, Lobby Track, Emoticon and Banner. Don’t worry if you miss a day, the gifts will still be there, just make sure to claim them all before 9AM ET on January 6.

Winterfest Quests

Epic is really spoiling us this year! In case the previous 14 cosmetics weren’t enough, you will be able to complete a series of Quest to unlock even more rewards. Sgt. Winter will drop a new Quest in the “Quests” page daily for the next two weeks.

Each Quest will grant an XP bonus, but that’s not all. Tick off seven to secure the Snowmando Board Glider with extra Ice King Board and Llamadelica Board styles, plus finish all ten to earn the Ffrosty Back Bling.

An exclusive Golden Look Board Glider will be granted to Fortnite Crew subscribers who log in during Winterfest.

Free Blizzabelle Skin

Finally for the free goodies, anyone who loads up Fortnite directly from the Epic Games Launcher during Winterfest is eligible to claim the Blizzabelle Outfit. Simply head to the Item Shop to redeem it at no cost.

This is part of the Epic Games Store “Epic Deals” promotion, unfortunately it is not available on console. Like Krisabelle, Blizzabelle is based on an original concept by @D3NNI_yt.

Winterfest in Fortnite Creative

The Winter Creator Callout has produced a selection of exciting Creative maps to help get you in the holiday spirit. There’ll be new worlds to explore, mini games to enjoy and challenges to take on.

Play two hours total via the Winterfest tab in the lobby to unlock the Ol’ Cracky Emoticon, Llamistletoe Spray, a Merry Marauder Banner, and a 2022 New Year’s Banner. Tis the season!
