The winter wonderland has appeared in the game called Fortnite Battle Royale with the release of the Winterfest 2019 holiday event. This one follows up on the 14 Days of Fortnite event from previous years that was the celebration of the exciting time of year.
As with any main limited time event, there are a lot of new challenges that you are able to complete during the duration of Winterfest, which is scheduled to end in early January 2020. Every day, a new challenge is being released while the event is going on.
Here is the full list of the current Winterfest challenges:
- Deal 200 damage to opponents with a snowball launcher
- Stoke a campfire
- Get five eliminations with an unvaulted weapon
- Hide inside a Sneaky Snowman in two different matches
- Warm yourself by the fireplace in the Winterfest Lodge
- Dance at Fortnite holiday trees in five different named locations
The biggest and the most challenging of those Winterfest challenges right now is to find and dance at the holiday trees around the map. This one is worth it, though as every of them reward you with some exclusive cosmetic items not found anywhere else.
Then, how to unlock the Winterfest challenges? It might sound weird but you do not just unlock these challenges when you open up the game. Collecting them is also the process and you need to complete a certain activity to get the challenges like the holiday trees one. In order to do this, you must go to the main battle royale lobby. At the top of the screen, you will be able to see all of the various tabs that you are able to pick. The second one is a new one that is in the shape of a snowflake, and is only here for this Winterfest event. You need to select that snowflake and then enter the Winterfest Lodge. It is a special event-specific location where you are able to open up gifts, warm yourself by the fire, and so on. What you will have to do is to choose the stockings that are over the fireplace and interact with it. After that, open up the stocking and you will get all of the currently available challenges in the event. It means you have to come back every day if you want to get each of the new tasks.
Before going to the locations of the holiday trees, there are a few tips that you need to know. First, you are required to dance at five different holiday trees, and there is only one per named location, so you will need to travel around. Fortunately, you are able to do this in as many matches as you need. Feel free to take your time as much as you need. You are recommended the Team Rumble mode for maximizing your time and making sure you are able to get as many as possible. You are also able to turn on the Party Assist feature and your team can divide up responsibilities for tackling this challenge more quickly.
