Time to get your freeze on as Fortnite celebrates the holiday season with Winterfest. Among the many things being offered are new challenges as well as free gifts.

To take part in this event, players need to go to the in-game lobby and look for the new snowflake tab. Clicking on the tab takes you to the Winterfest Lodge. While there, you get to unwrap a new present which can include, among others, two Outfits, two Gliders, two Pickaxes, two Wraps, and one Emote. It's not just one present either, as you get to unwrap a present every day for 14 days. But wait, there's more. All the presents are free for everyone to open. If you miss any days, don't worry as you can go back to the Lodge and open them. Don't take too long as this is only good until January 7.

The Winterfest Lodge also has stockings that offer rewards to unlock. Check your stocking each day to get a new challenge. Completing the challenge gives you both rewards and XP. Like presents, you have until January 7 to grab all the goodies.

Fortnite is also unvaulting lots of weapons during the Winterfest event. In addition, beginning December 18 and until January 7, get a chance to try out some of the favorite LTMs like Arsenal and Wick's Bounty. Finally, Zone Wars is also going to be running throughout the holidays.
