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.

Here’s how to find and reveal the Command Symbol for Fortnite Season 8’s Ariana Grande Fortnitemares Punchcard Quest.

Ariana Grande has arrived in Fortnite as an NPC and for her Fortnitemares Punchcard Quests, you’ll need to reveal the Command Symbol. This can be tricky if you don’t know how, so where to find and reveal the Command Symbol.

Fortnite’s Halloween update is here with Fortnitemares. This includes plenty of new features and challenges for players to earn some spooky goodies.

These come in the form of Punchcards, which has brought Ariana Grande back as an NPC.

For one of her Quests, you need to “reveal the Command Symbol.” This is tough if you don’t know how, so here’s where to find and then activate the Command Symbols for the Fortnitemares challenges.

How to reveal the Command Symbol in Fortnite Season 8

To reveal the Fortnite Command Symbol, you must demonstrate the action in front of each corresponding hologram.

You’ll recognize the Fortnite Command Symbol as a blue hologram in between three glowing sticks. The sticks will emit a hologram depicting a different action such as emoting, jumping, or swinging your Pickaxe.

You just need to do the action in front of its corresponding hologram and you’ll have revealed the Command Symbol.

And you only need to activate the Command Symbol once, so don’t worry about having to do it several times.

You can reveal the Command Symbol in several major POIs around the Fortnite map. Thanks to Fortnite.gg here are the locations:

  • Believer Beach
  • Corny Crops
  • Weeping Woods
  • Retail Row
  • Misty Meadows

You’ll begin the Quest in Believer Beach after receiving it from Ariana Grande, so this is the best place to try to complete it.

However, Believer Beach is extremely busy with everyone trying to complete the Fortnitemares Quests so it may be risky. You’ll find that the other locations are much less contested.


And that’s how you reveal the Command Symbol for Fortnite’s Ariana Grande Quests!

Dune skins in Fortnite

Epic Games have added more crossover content in Fortnite Season 8, this time in the form of cosmetic skins from the new Dune film. Here’s how you can get your hands on them.

Epic Games often introduce new Fortnite skins that align with the release of major blockbuster movies, such as the Venom and Carnage skins that were were added alongside the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Now, the developers have added a few skins and cosmetic items in Fortnite Season 8 from the film Dune, and players can now play as Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya in the Battle Royale.

The Epic Games Twitter account announced on Tuesday that the characters Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) from the movie would become available for purchase in Item Shop.

Here’s are all the Dune Fortnite cosmetics:

  • Paul Atreides Outfit
  • Chani Outfit
  • Twinblades pickaxe
  • Maker Hooks pickaxe
  • Sand Walk emote
  • Fremkits for both characters
  • Ornithopter attack ship
  • Sandworm loading screen

There are two different bundles to choose from. The Dune Bundle contains the two outfits, loading screen, and Fremkits. The Dune Gear Bundle contains the rest of the items.

You can get the Paul Atreides and Chani outfits for 1,500 V-Bucks each. If you want the other items then you can spend 2,000 V-Bucks on the Dune Bundle. The Dune Gear Bundle will cost 1,500 V-Bucks.

These are all currently available in the Fortnite Item Shop, but we don’t know for how long they will stay. It makes perfect sense for Epic Games to add Dune skins to align with the film’s release in October 2021.

Fortnitemares 2021 has brought a brand-new melee weapon known as the Sideways Scythe to Fortnite Season 8, and here’s everything you need to do if you want to get your hands on it.

Fortnitemares 2021 has added a ton of fun new content for Fortnite fans to enjoy. Season 8’s Cubes have now converged, you can collect Candy in Fortnitemares Quests, and an Ariana Grande skin is on its way.

The Cube Queen has brought her wrath to Fortnite Island, and if you want to survive a battle against her Cube Monsters then we recommend getting the new Sideways weapon known as the Sideways Scythe.

If you want to get this item then you’ll need to head to a Sideways Zone. This new Sideways weapon was added as part of the 18.21 update, and it’s the first new melee weapon to arrive in Fortnite for a while.

These spawn at the start of every match and you can spot them easily when jumping from the Battle Bus. They resemble giant orange energy domes over some of the POIs, and you can easily track these on the map.

We recommend landing directly at these spots after jumping from the Battle Bus so that you get there ahead of your opponents. Once you’re there, you just need to open up Sideways Chests until you find a Sideways Scythe.

This weapon comes with a combo of five basic melee attacks along with a powerful jump attack that you can activate by jumping in the air and pressing the ‘fire’ button to damage nearby foes.

You can also use the ‘aim’ button to run quickly for a short duration and then launch a spin attack by pressing the ‘fire’ button. You can upgrade the weapon by defeating Cube Monsters and collecting Cube Monster Parts.
