Chapter 2 Season 5 Trailer

The first update of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 has arrived with the 15.10 update.

Players will be able to unlock two new free skins during Operation: Snowdown.

Operation: Snowdown

It has now been revealed that Winterfest won't be called Winterfest this year, instead it is now known as Operation: Snowdown.

Players will be given Operation: Snowdown challenges to complete, which will grant XP and cosmetics, including two free skins.

There is also another event called The Spy Within, which will grant even more free cosmetics.

Players who complete all of the Operation: Snowdown challenges will receive the Snowmando and Frost Squad skins for free.

Here is the official description from Epic Games,

Winter is coming this week. Join Snowmando for new Quests, chilling Items added to the Island, and new and fan-favorite LTMs you won’t wanna miss. Complete all the Operation: Snowdown Quests and earn a ton of free snowy cosmetics, including two exclusive Outfits!

Free Skins

Players that complete all of the Operation: Snowdown challenge will unlock the Snowmando and Frost Squad skins.

Snowmando was previously leaked in a video promoting Operation: Snowdown.

Challenges

Players will be able to complete the Operation: Snowdown and The Spy Within challenges to earn free cosmetics, skins, and a lot of XP, in addition to the Weekly Quests.

SNOWDOWN: Complete these challenges to earn two new skins.

Free XP

Upon logging on to Fortnite for the first time after the 15.10 update installed, players were granted 50,000 free XP.

FREE: Players were given 50,000 free XP for logging in after the 15.10 update.

It is unclear why the XP has been granted, but with the final Enlightened style being unlocked at level 225, we have a long way to go.

Thankfully the season doesn't end until March 16th and, by our calculations, if you are above level 29 right now then you are on track to reach level 225 before the end of Season 5, assuming it doesn't get delayed further.

Patch Notes

Before every day creators, who are part of the Support A Creator program, get sent a form of patch notes ahead of the next update.

Operation: Snowdown

Winter is coming this week. Join Snowmando for new Quests, chilling Items added to the Island, and new and fan-favorite LTMs you won’t wanna miss. Complete all the Operation: Snowdown Quests and earn a ton of free snowy cosmetics, including two exclusive Outfits!

New Items

Mancake misplaced his stash of weapons throughout the Island. The new Cowboy Repeater Rifle combines a rapid shooting style with dead-eye accuracy. Syr-up!

Save up those Bars because the fire-loving Blaze has also been equipped with an Exotic-class weapon for sale, the fiery Dragon’s Breath Sniper. To combat the heat, a new Character has arrived and will be packing their own chilly armaments.

New Options

Based on player-requested feedback, we’ve added an option to toggle on or off Pre-Edits; with Pre-Edits ‘off’ new builds will always appear in their default, unedited state when building.

On the next gen hardware front, 15.10 brings ‘120 FPS Mode’ option for a buttery smooth framerate that would make Mancake blush. Note: In 120 FPS Mode, the resolution display will be capped at 1440p on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and 1080p for Xbox Series S.

New LTM: Spy Within

Drop in to a new LTM playlist, Spy Within, featuring new games made by top community creators. The team of Spies must hunt down the team of Agents as they complete objectives. Don’t act sus, or the agents will vote you off the island!

Crew Pack

In a blog post the Crew Pack was officially revealed by Epic Games, after having been leaked recently.

Each month players will receive,

  • Battle Pass Included for the full Season - As a member of the Fortnite Crew, you’ll always have access to the current season’s Battle Pass!
  • 1,000 V-Bucks Each Month - Fortnite Crew members will receive 1,000 V-Bucks every month. Spend it on your favorite Item Shop content!
  • Get A New Monthly Crew Pack! - Get an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, an always-new Outfit Bundle that only Fortnite Crew members get.
