What better way to welcome in the next Chapter of Fortnite than Winterfest! Running from December 16, 2021 at 6 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. ET to January 6, 2022 at 6 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. ET, Sgt. Winter himself will be giving players 14 unwrappable gifts — including two outfits — over the course of Winterfest 2021.
For players just starting their Fortnite journey with the launch of Chapter 3, this is the perfect chance to get an early start filling out your Locker with lots of items. For longtime players, this is a great time to add to your collection!
The Winterfest Lodge Welcomes You Back
Crackshot was kind enough to rent out the Winterfest Lodge to Sgt. Winter. Inside the Lodge, Sgt. Winter will be giving out a new present every day for 14 days. Here’s what’s loaded in the gifts: Two Outfits, two Pickaxes, two Wraps, a Glider, Contrail, Emote, Lobby Track, Loading Screen, Emoticon, Spray, and Banner.
We don’t want to spoil what the gifts are exactly, but we will introduce you to the Outfits! There’s Krisabelle, a festive version of the community-inspired Isabelle, and there’s Polar Peely, a cool banana (literally) who does NOT belong on a split.
Just as last time, the Winterfest Lodge will be available through the snowflake tab in the Lobby. If you miss any days of unwrapping these Presents, don’t worry about it! You can simply return to the Lodge and pick up your Presents anytime before Winterfest ends (January 6 at 6 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. ET).
Unvaulted Icy Items
For Winterfest, Sgt. Winter has decided to open up the icy armory. Let’s take a look at what he’s brought to the Island:
- Knock back foes and give ‘em slippery ice block feet with Chiller Grenades. (Also fun to apply to yourself.)
- Launch exploding snowballs with Snowball Launchers.
- Throw down Holiday Presents! to open ‘em up and grab their loot.
- Use a Sneaky Snowman to disguise yourself as a snowman and stealth around.
In the Item Shop: Spider-Man and MJ from “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (Plus More Outfits)
There’s classic Spider-Man of the Chapter 3 Season 1 Battle Pass, and soon No Way Home Spider-Man and MJ will be coming to the Item Shop for Winterfest. (Just in time for the movie’s release!) The Spider-Man (No Way Home) and MJ (No Way Home) Outfits will be in the Item Shop starting December 16 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET. Put on and take off No Way Home Spider-Man’s mask with his built-in Emote!
More new Outfits will be rotating into the Shop as Winterfest progresses, including those inspired by concepts from June’s Contest Royale winners, winners of June’s Concept Royale. Returning winter Outfits will make their appearance as well!
Sgt. Winter isn’t just staying cooped up in the Lodge this Winterfest. Expect to see the Sergeant patrolling the Island alongside his two Red Nosed Ranger chauffeurs. He’ll be throwing out Holiday Presents along the way… unless you do something that’ll get you on his bad side. In that case, he and the Rangers will go from festive to fight mode real fast.
So stay nice, unwrap your gifts, and have a happy Winterfest!
