Fortnite Winterfest 2021 is here, and there are a lot of new skins to celebrate the holiday, some new cosmetics to compliment your locker, and even a new Spiderman skin, including the real reason for this season: Zendaya.
Fortnite Winterfest is often one of the biggest prize draws in battle royale games every year, so go all out. For Fortnite Chapter 3, we have covered most of the map in soft snowflakes and Christmas lights, so we are off to a good start.
As in previous years, you can receive gifts every day of Winterfest, so it is a wise idea to return every day.
We are here to detail everything you can expect during Fortnite Winterfest 2021, including when it starts, when it ends, skins, challenges and more. Please continue reading the complete guide.
When does Fortnite Winterfest 2021 start?
Fortnite Winterfest starts on December 16th and ends on January 6th, so if you are reading this article, it has probably already begun. Unlike the real Christmas, you don’t need to wait.
Fortnite Winterfest 2021 skin
“It was the night of the fortress before Christmas. At that time, there was no creature moving in the whole house, not even a conscious banana.” Jones carefully hung the stocking by the chimney, hoping for Sergeant. Winter is coming soon. Krisabelle and Blizzabelle both nestled comfortably on their bed, and the phantom of Polar Peely danced in their minds.
In any case, here are every new holiday themed skin you will find sold or earned during Fortnite Winterfest.
Epic’s official blog stated that there will be 14 days of gifts in the Winterfest hotel menu that can be opened. This includes two outfits, two pickaxes, two packages, as well as a glider, trajectory, emoji, lobby track, loading screen, emoji, spray, and banner.
Epic also stated that during Winterfest, two additional sets of costumes will appear in the item store. These are works created by the community, designed by @lbdart and @altacalls, winners of the Concept Royale competition in June.
Fortnite Winterfest: How to get Tom Holland, Spider-Man and Zendaya MJ
Perhaps the biggest attraction during Fortnite Winterfest 2021, the item store is buying several new Spiderman skin costumes, including a maskless version, which is a very convincing reproduction of Tom Holland. You can put on or take off the mask through his built-in emoji.
There is also a less convincing but still neat version of Zendaya, such as Mary Jane Watson/MJ. Interestingly, I think this makes Zendaya the first IRL human with two separate skins based on the different roles they play, instead of the previous celebrity skins, which are basically just a variant version of the same person. Fans of Fortnite will remember her as Dune’s Chani.
We also obtained new variants of Spider-Man based on his various appearances in the MCU. The black version seen above may be the roadless home from the flip of the universe, as well as the standard red suit we have seen in recent movies.
These Spider-Man and Zandaya skins will be available in the Item Store starting at 7pm Eastern Time on December 16th.
Fortnite Winterfest mission rewards
Players can also complete the new Winterfest challenge to get some extra rewards and extra XP. A new task will be added every day during the winter season. If you complete 7 missions, you will get a Snowmando glider (in two variants), and complete 10 missions will get Frosty back bling.
Fortnite Crew subscribers can launch the Golden Look glider, probably inspired by Mr. Midas himself. All you need to do is become an active subscriber and log in to Fortnite during the event.
Play for two hours in Fortnite creative mode and you will also get a new spray paint, emoji and two banners.
Fortnite Winterfest gameplay changes
During Winterfest, Fortnite added some gameplay changes. The following are the key points:
- The cooling grenade has no arch shape, allowing you to temporarily freeze enemies within the explosion radius.
- The snowball launcher does not have an arch shape, and of course it allows you to launch snowballs.
- Holiday gifts are also back, allowing you to throw a big bag of loot for your friends.
- The sneaky snowman disguise is back, it allows you to hide yourself in everyone’s favorite Christmas decorations, which are designed to be crushed.
- Sergeant Winter will be added to the map as a new NPC, accompanied by two red-nosed rangers. They will distribute gifts on a regular basis, but if provoked, they will also attack you.
That’s all you need to know, so hope you have a fulfilling vacation and stay enthusiastic between all these victories. Check out our Fortnite guide page for more challenge walkthroughs and news about the latest skins. Speaking of Spider-Man, here is how to get a web shooter in Fortnite.
