Fortnite Winterfest 2021 has arrived, and your gifts are under the tree

As everyone in pop culture steps into Christmas, it’s a magical time of year. We’ve come to expect that our favourite games will implement Holiday updates or events.

Fortnite is one such game. It has a kind of tradition with its annual Winterfest events. Each day, new challenges and spectacles are accompanied in-game by an Advent calendar that gives away a new cosmetic item each day. Although it may have been a bit later than expected, Winterfest 2021 has finally arrived, and your Fortnite freebies will be waiting under the tree.

Sgt Winter with his Winterfest Lodge

The Winterfest Lodge returns for 2021. It looks just as cosy as it ever did, but Sergeant Winter is now occupying the comfortable armchair. The Sgt Winter skin is a beautiful, rugged, and jacked Santa-alike. It dates back to Fortnite’s very first Chapter. Many have wondered how he is still alive after being a part of the game’s history for so many years. He is still there, tucked up in his cosy cottage, ready to give presents to the well-behaved loopers.

You’ll find piles of presents at Sgt Winter’s feet in the familiar and welcoming scene. Instead of waiting until Christmas Day to open them all, you can open one per day during the event. These gifts include new cosmetic items, including Outfits, Back Bling, Gliders, and Pickaxes.

You can claim all the gifts, just like previous Winterfests. Although only one gift is allowed per day, you can still pick up two the next day if any are not available. You can also pick them up in almost any order. The gift tags give you an idea of what you might get.

Sgt Winter will be an NPC on Artemis Island and the first person to drive around. Sgt Winter will be giving out gifts if you happen to spot him on your travels. However, if you are on his naughty list, you will soon be avoiding the bullets from his Rangers.

Fortnite Winterfest quests 2021

A new set of challenges was launched with Winterfest 2020. Only one quest is currently available at the time of writing. However, more will be added daily. You can also earn XP and a sleigh full of cool cosmetic items by completing quests. These include the Frosty back Bling or the Ice King Snowmando Board Glider. The quests are available all through the event. But you can start now by dropping in!

Fortnite’s Winterfest 2021 cosmetics

There will be tons of new cosmetics available at the event. You can claim them by completing rewards, and there will also be the ever-changing in-game store and Sgt Winter’s Lodge presents. Epic Games has given us a glimpse at some of the outfits and items that will become available over the next few weeks, although most are still kept under wraps.

Christabelle is a festive and cute version of Isabelle. Even though she is wearing an adorable mini-skirt, it looks like she may be a little too cold to go to Artemis map. The cool-as-ice, literally Polar Peely, is another option. Although a frozen banana can be a tasty treat, it seems that Peely was left in there for too long.

This Winterfest also saw the release of another Isabelle variant. Blizzabelle, a chillingly bright blue skin. Blizzabelle, another skin that is free to claim, has some requirements. Check out how to get your Blizzabelle skin here.

Spider-Man and The Matrix gifts

At least one Matrix-themed gift hidden among the Christmas gifts under the Lodge’s Christmas tree confirms the rumour about a crossover. This is evident in the Matrix gift bag just to the right Sgt Winter’s seat.

Many renowned leakers also talk about the possibility of Spider-Man gifts being revealed at the Lodge. Some data mines revealed that some of the gifts placed under Sgt Winter’s feet belonged to an “MJ”, which was a reference in some way to Spider-Man No Way Home (Michelle Jones rather than Mary-Jane). Although these gifts are not yet present in the Lodge, other leaks such as the Matrix gift bags have been confirmed. We can only hope we will soon get a few from MJ.

New Spider-Man skins

You can also purchase MJ’s new Outfit bundle from the store, including another spider-Man/Peter Parker variant. The film’s December 15 release date coincided with the Spider-Man skins and the MJ skins.

What time is Fortnite’s Winterfest happening?

The 2021 Winterfest event has begun and will continue until January 6, 2022, at 6 am PST/9 am EDT/2 pm GMT.
