Fortnite: Operation Snowdown Winter Event Brings Free Skins, Quests, And More

Epic Games has launched its latest seasonal event in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and as you might guess from the name, it’s a winter-themed one. Operation Snowdown brings new activities and free rewards for all players to take part in and earn from now until January 5.

During Operation Snowdown, the NPC Snowmando will offer quests with a variety of new seasonal rewards, such as the Frosty Globes pickaxe, Shield Surprise back bling, and more gliders and wraps, plus another back bling and pickaxe. You can get a peek at some of these in the image below. There are also new and returning skins/outfits to purchase on the Fortnite item shop. Everyone can also now claim the Sing Along emote, which causes you to pull out a book and begin caroling, for free from the item shop–if you purchased it previously, you’ll get your V-Bucks refunded.

While you’re playing, you’ll also encounter new tools to get the job done. There are custom X-4 Stormwing planes that are wrapped in Christmas lights, special Chiller grenades, Sneaky Snowmandos (which disguise you as a snowman), and “Snowmando-wrapped presents.”
