Here’s everything we know about Winterfest 2021.

Fortnite Winterfest 2021 start date and downtime

Epic Games have confirmed that the Fortnite Winterfest festivities will kick off on December 16 and will last for 14 days until December 30. During this time, we will see the arrival of frosty fresh items, special challenges, and more.

How to get free Krisabelle & Polar Peely skins in Fortnite

Fortnite Winterfest skins

The Winterfest 2021 event has already brought a ton of cool holiday-themed skins that you can purchase from the Item Shop, along with two cash bundles. So, you can participate in the fest while wearing cool winter outfits.

It’s not common for Fortnite skins to be given away for free although players must remember it is the season of giving. During Winterfest, both Krisabelle and Polar Peely skins will be available.

These aren’t the easiest skins to unlock but players up for a challenge will receive a festive reward. Claiming the six presents blocking her way will result in unlocking the Krisabelle skin. This means you’ll have to be patient and wait until at least day 7 of Winterfest before you can complete the challenge.

When it comes to Polar Peely, you’ll have to wait for the frozen ice block to thaw. Although we currently don’t know when that will be, players should expect it to occur as the event nears its conclusion.

Fortnite Winterfest 2021 items

Fortnite fans are sure to recognize some returning holiday items via Winterfest. Keep in mind you’ll have a limited time to take advantage of these festive items so get to playing!

Here are the items that are available throughout the Winterfest event.

  • Chiller Grenades
  • Snowball Launcher
  • Holiday Presents!
  • Sneaky Snowman

Accessing your presents in Fortnite is quite simple. Just make sure you’re on the lobby screen and keep scrolling until you get to the snowflake tab. Select ‘visit Lodge’ and choose the present you want to open.

The next 14 days will be vital. Don’t forget to return each day for the next 14 days to unwrap more presents. If you miss a day or two, worry not, you will be able to catch up on any unopened presents. You’ll need to log in before January 6, 2022 to do so.

That covers everything that’s been revealed so far about Winterfest 2021. You can currently go to the Fortnite Item Shop and purchase some cool holiday-themed cosmetics for yourself.

We’ll keep checking for any more developments regarding the fest. If Epic Games announce some new information throughout the event, we’ll be sure to update this article.

Where to find Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs in Fortnite Chapter 3

Fortnite have added the new Klomobo dinosaurs into the game, giving players new ways to move around the map. Here’s where you can find them.

The first Fortnite update of 2022 is here, introducing the Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs to the island. Here’s everywhere you can find them, how to feed them, and how to use them as rotation devices.

Fortnite’s 19.10 update will go down in history as the patch that brought back fan-favorite POI Tilted Towers. The legendary area has been missing from the game since 2019, but finally, players can “drop Tilted” and battle players in the city’s buildings.

Of course, that wasn’t the only thing added in this major patch, with the Buttercake dinosaurs that were teased in the Season 1 promo finally appearing on the island.

You’ll now see the creatures roaming around, but what can you do with them, and where can you find them? Here’s everything you need to know about Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs.

The Klombos are peaceful dinosaurs that can be seen roaming across the map after the January 18 update. Be warned though, they will attack you if provoked, so make sure not to hurt them in the heat of battle.

The good news is that there are at least four Klombos dinosaurs roaming the map at any one time, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see one for yourself.

The bad news is that they don’t appear in the same place every match. According to leakers, their positions alter game to game, but your best chance of spotting one is in the northeast corner of the map. Avoid the sandy area in the south, as this has the least number of spawns.

How to feed Klombos in Fortnite

Feeding Klomos is relatively easy. You’ll need to keep a lookout for the new Klomberry consumable item that can now be found on bushes around Fortnite‘s island.

If you’ve upset a Klombo, you can feed it one of these treats to calm it down, then keep giving them to these beasts to gain a reward in the form of items it will spit onto the ground for you.

How to use Klombos to rotate around the map

Using Klombos to rotate around the map is simple. Simply jump on their tail, and run up the back of this creature. Once you reach its head, the dinosaur’s blowhole will shoot you up into the air.

This can be used to effectively escape from a battle you can’t win, or simply to head towards a different part of the map.

That’s everything we know about Klombos so far, but it’s always possible that these creatures have more hidden talents we don’t know about. Epic may also make changes to them as the season advances, so keep an eye out for new tricks or a different attitude.

Tilted Towers returns in Fortnite 19.20 update

Fortnite Tilted Towers POI

Fortnite shifted to a brand-new map with Chapter 3 and eagle-eyed players spotted a familiar POI under the ice – Tilted Towers.

Tilted Towers was a fan-favorite location from Chapter 1, offering the perfect action-packed drop spot for high kill games. A version of it returned in Chapter 2 with Salty Towers, but Chapter 3’s version is the real deal.

Tilted Towers can be found in the middle of the map, just below the island’s biggest lake. Tilted Towers has replaced Coral Castle, a change that some Fortnite players are disappointed about.

Along with the exciting return of Tilted Towers, players also have a new consumable item to eat. The Klomberry helps to both heal players and add shields, and players can carry 15 of them at a time.

These berries can be found in Butter Cake Bushes, which can be found scattered randomly around the island.
