Fortnite Winterfest 2021: the Lodge, Quests, New Weapons and Skins
It’s officially Christmas in Fortnite, which means it’s time to get into the holiday spirit by tearing down the remainder of the lobby.
The battle royale is getting into the Christmas season with the return of the Winter Lodge, many new skins, festive-themed weaponry, and more in the coming weeks. You can also earn Christmas-themed rewards by completing the quests.
In addition, following the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Fortnite has released skins inspired by Tom Holland and Zendaya, making them a rare company with official Marvel characters.
Lodge reopens for Winterfest
Fortnite Winterfest Lodge is an area in the main menu where you can unlock new reward items by opening the daily gifts. Many players were disappointed by the absence of the Lodge in the 2020 event, but luckily it’s back in 2021.
You can interact with several other elements of the Lodge, besides opening a present every day. Over the fireplace, there’s a Quadcrasher reindeer head that triggers a small remote control car. Going to the left, you can find the nutcracker lying hidden behind the stacks of presents. While the bauble on the right gives you access to the bauble, Ilama cowbell, and a safe that has different contents each time you unlock it.
You can also interact with Sgt. Winter in the chair and select the fireplace to access the Yule Log, which supercharges your XP while also providing random XP bonuses. If you don’t have anything else to do, this will give you a little boost in the game.
Visit this grotto every day so you can collect all of your presents throughout the event. Do not worry if you miss a few days, as you can catch up on your missed gifts up until January 6, 2022.
Sgt. Winter will post a new Winterfest Quest under the “Quests” tab for the next 14 days, each with an XP payout. You can complete all of the quests until January 6 at 9 a.m. ET.
After completing seven Winterfest Quests you can unlock the Snowmando Board Glider, while the Ffrosty Back Bling is available after completing ten. Perform a stunt with the Snowmando Board Glider and surf down into combat. This glider comes in two alternate styles, the Ice King Board and the Llamadelica Board.
Additionally, active Fornite Crew subscribers will receive the Golden Look Board Glider when they log into Winterfest 2021.
Winterfest weapons and skin
For a short period of time, Sgt. Winter will bring a variety of weapons and goods back from the festive vault. The snowball Launcher flings frozen missiles at your opponents. Chiller Grenades give you or other players ice block feet to slide around on.
The Sneaky Snowman allows you to dodge all eyes, but still be careful where you choose to position yourself. While Holiday Present opens up a gift box of useful items.
Throughout Winterfest, more new skins will be rotating into the Shop, such as the Polar Peely skin, Krisabelle Christmas skin with a red and blue variant exclusive via the Epic Game Store on PC.
The Shop will also feature several Spider-Man skin costumes, including the maskless versions that look a lot like Tom Holland, with a built-in emote that allows you to put on or take off the mask, and Zendaya as Mary Jane Watson/MJ.
The Spider-Man: No Way Home skin will be available in the Shop on December 16 at 7 p.m. ET.
Fortnite Winterfest begins on December 16, 2021, and finishes on January 6, 2022.
