Fortnite ‘Operation Snowdown’ challenges leaked

It’s time for Winterfest 2020 in Fortnite, and we now have early information about the Operation Snowdown challenges.

Published

Fortnite’s latest holiday-themed event is almost here. Winterfest 2020, also known as Operation Snowdown, will go live in a few days, and a new leak has given us information on some of the challenges and rewards that we can expect.

Epic Games released the first update for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 on December 15. The v15.50 update brought winter-themed skins, NPCs, and new Exotic weapons to the game. All of this is meant to prepare players for the annual holiday celebration.

Winterfest is just around the corner, and the developers are adding new challenges that you can tackle when they release Operation Snowdown in a few days. Now a new leak has given us an early look at the different tasks that we’ll have to perform in the event.

Let’s go over the leaked Operation Snowdown challenges in Fortnite Season 5.

Operation Snowdown challenges

This leak came from reliable Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey. Many of the challenges focus on completing Epic Quests, visiting outposts, and dishing out damage with the new Christmas-themed Exotic weapons.

Here are all of the Operation Snowdown challenges:

  • Complete Epic Quests (73)
  • Visit different Snowmando outposts (1)
  • Deal damage with Lever Action Rifle (100)
  • Complete Operation Snowdown Quests (9/12)
  • Dance at Different Holiday trees (5)
  • Search chests at Snowmando outposts (5)
  • Place Top 10 with friends in Squads (3)
  • Destroy Nutcracker statues (5)
  • Travel 5,000 meters in X-4 Stormwings
  • Shoot down opponent structures with X-4 Stormwings (10)
  • Collect Gold Bars (100)
  • Catch a Snowy Flopper
  • Revive a player in different matches (3)
  • Hide inside a Sneaky Snowmando in different matches (3)
  • Play duos/squads with friends (5)
  • stoke a campfire (2)
  • Deal damage at Snowmando outposts (25)
  • Use Chiller Launcher to apply icy feet to opponents (10)

If this leak is accurate, then there are a total of 16 challenges in Fortnite Winterfest 2020. XP bonuses are the only kind of rewards that are tied to these challenges. There aren’t any cosmetic rewards attached to them, but that can change when the challenges are actually released.

There are a couple of new skins that you can unlock if you tackle these tasks. Snowmando is your reward for completing 9 Operation Snowdown Quests, and the Frost Squad skin is the prize for completing 12.

A few of these challenges will have you use newly-released weapons such as the Big Chill Grenade Launcher. Releasing the Winterfest is the perfect way for the developers to get Fortnite players into the holiday spirit during Season 5.

Do keep in mind that these are still leaks at the moment. We haven’t heard any confirmation from Epic Games yet, so these are subject to change. We’ll know for sure when the event goes live in a few days, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Fortnite jetpack glitch lets players fly forever in Floor is Lava tournament

Fornite players are taking advantage of a ridiculous new glitch that allows players to fly forever in a jetpack.

Published

infinite jetpack fortnite glitch

Fortnite has a weird new exploit that allows you to tower over your enemies, forever. The new jetpack glitch uses lava to make your character an unintentional superhero in Season 5.

There are only two months to go until the end of Fortnite Season 5. Aside from a few minor bugs, the first few weeks of it has been a relatively easy ride run thus far with few major stumbling blocks.

But a new problem has been discovered that is giving Fortniters a big boost over their rivals by exploiting an accidental mechanic.

Fortnite Season 5 jetpack glitch

The new jetpack exploit is one that will become less effective as it becomes notorious. But in this moment, it’s making for a huge advantage, particularly in endgame circumstances.

First posted by Reddit user monty775 the new glitch requires the player to have access to a jetpack and to be within touching distance of lava.

The exploit only applies to the “The Floor is Lava” LTM as well. The main game is thankfully safe. But for anyone wanting to enjoy this exciting new mode, vigilance will be key.

As demonstrated in the video, our player jumps into some deadly lava which causes them to bounce up into the air. But they simultaneously trigger their jetpack which causes them to permanently ascend.

The player keeps their jetpack engaged and they continue to rise up into the air. It’s been confirmed that you’ll be able to go as high as the natural limits of the jetpack. So there is no floating off into space sadly.

But as we said, if there’s only a few of you left and you’re miles above the ground peppering the enemy with almost phantom shots, you are increasing your chances of victory.

This isn’t an easy exploit to pull off. Given the precise timing needed to activate your jetpack, you could also just as easily become a toasted marshmallow. So it’ll all boil down to your conscience and whether or not you feel the risk is worth the reward.

Either way, this is a potentially game-breaking glitch for players that are unaware of its existence in the mode. Epic Games will have their eyes on it sooner or later and it will become a non-issue quite quickly.

Where to find & destroy Slurp Barrels for Fortnite Week 7 challenges

Here’s how you can complete the Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge that requires you to destroy Slurp Barrels.

Where to find Slurp Barrels in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite Season 5’s Week 7 challenges include an Epic Quest that has you destroy Slurp Barrels. Luckily, you can find these in one location so here’s the best way to complete this objective.

Week 7 of Fortnite Season 5 is here, and Epic Games have released brand new challenges for you to complete to level up and get cool new gear. This week has eight tasks available that you can learn more about in our weekly guide.

Many of these are fairly easy to complete such as visiting houses or consuming shield potions. One Epic Quest requires you to destroy a set number of Slurp Barrels. Here is where you can find them on the map.

Where to find Fortnite Slurp Barrels

As the name implies, you will come across a ton of Slurp Barrels when exploring Slurpy Swamp. This location is a huge Slurp factory, so you won’t face any trouble finding the barrels after a quick look around.

Another Epic quest from this week requires you to visit 3 Houses in Slurpy Swamp during the same match, so you should land directly at Slurpy after jumping from the Battle Bus. Once you’ve gone through the houses, you can focus on your other objective.

Fortunately, the Slurp Barrels often come in sets of two or three, which makes them easy to locate. It shouldn’t take you too long to find them all. There’s a building on the northeast end of this area that contains many of them.

Make your way towards that building if you want to destroy multiple Slurp Barrels at once. We’ve marked its location on the map below.

Once you come across the barrels, all you need to do is pull out your pickaxe and destroy them. The Slurp Barrels are all over this location so finding 10 should be easy enough, and you can destroy them all in a single match.

Just be careful about other players that you will probably encounter while exploring Slurpy Swamp. Due to this week’s challenges, many of them will have the same idea to land there, so be ready for a fight.

Destroying all 10 barrels will net you 20,000 XP, so be sure to try this challenge out. While you’re at it, be sure to search for Chests in the area to complete another Epic Quest.
