It's still the festive period, even if Christmas has been and gone - that means Fortnite's Winterfest Event is still adding new in-game challenges to Fortnite. If you're looking for a quick XP boost, then you should make sure you're trying to complete these challenges. There are only a few days left, so make sure you're tackling these as quickly as you can!

Before we continue, it's actually worth noting that you can only complete one of these Winterfest challenges a day and Epic Games is only unlocking one of these per day. Here's what time you need to keep an eye out for - when the next challenge is available to complete...

  • 06:00 PST
  • 09:00 EST
  • 14:00 GMT

Now, onto the Winterfest Event Challenges themselves...

Today's Challenge is...

Travel 1,000 meters on a Crackshot Quadcrasher 0/1,000

The Crackshot Quadcrasher is just a style of vehicle specific to the Winterfest 2021 event. These are again commonly found near gas stations. Once you track one down, ride it for 1,000 meters and the quest will be complete!

All Fortnite Winterfest Event Challenges

There's going to be 15 Winterfest Event Challenges available throughout the 15 days Fortnite's Winterfest Event is available. You can earn the Snowmando Board Glider by completing 7 of them and the Frosty Llama Back Bling by getting through all 15! Here's what you'll be looking at...

Winterfest 2021 rewards

The following quests will reward completion with 18,000 XP each for a total of 270,000 XP after all are finished!

Warm yourself at the Yule log in the Cozy Lodge 0/1

You can enter the Cozy Lodge from the lobby by selecting the snowflake from the top of the screen. When in the Lodge you must click on Sgt. Winters then again on the lit fire. This will complete the quest.

Deal damage to opponents with the Snowball Launcher 0/50

With the introduction of Winterfest, we're set to receive some brand new weapons in-game. One of these will be the Snowball Launcher. Simply find one and deal 50 damage with it to complete this challenge!

Light a campfire while having icy feet 0/1

This one could be a little tricky but you'll need to track down an unlit campfire first and make sure you have a Chiller Grenade in your inventory. While standing at the fire you can throw the grenade on the floor to give yourself icy feet then attempt to interact with the fire to light it.


Collect Toy Biplanes at Condo Canyon, Greasy Grove or Sleepy Sound 0/3

The map is marked with the locations of the Biplanes so head to one of the names POI and check the minimap for a small white '!'. Approach and interact with the Biplanes to collect them.

There are 3 planes at each location

Travel while having Icy Feet 0/200

As with some other challenges on this list, the easiest way to get icy feet is using a Chiller Grenade as they spawn quite frequently. Use one on the ground you're standing on and you'll gain icy feet for a short time. Move around until you reach 200 meters travelled and that's the quest complete!

Fly with a chicken 0/200

We're not sure how this one will work at the moment. You may be required to build a launchpad then use it while holding a chicken.


Dance for three seconds at Crackshot's Cabin and Stg. Winter's Workshop 0/3

Luckily, both of these locations are marked on the map to help you find them. Just get nice and close to both locations and use a dance emote for 3 seconds at each one. You do not have to do both locations in one match.

LOCATIONS - Where you need to be looking...

Ram a snowman with a vehicle 0/1

Another simple task. You can find multiple vehicles around the map with them being most common around gas stations. Just take one and ram into any of the many snowmen around the map to complete this challenge.

Fortnite sneaky snowmando

You could also use the Sneaky Snowmando item to set up a snowman if you can't find any.


Use a Holiday Presents! item 0/1

The 'Holiday Present!' is a rare item that currently has the best chance of spawning around Sleepy Sound (based on what we've seen). It's a small golden present and, when used, spawn a giant cardboard box around you with incredible loot inside.

Search a treasure chest under a holiday tree 0/1

Many of the trees in Fortnite have received a bit of a makeover for Winterfest. Track one down that has a chest under it and open it to complete this quest!

Eat food in a single match 0/5

Food can be classed as meat picked up from a dead animal or a fish that grants health. You can try and drop from a height to drain some health or set yourself on fire. It's typically a safer way to lose health than a firefight.

Simply regain that health with food times 5 times to complete this quest.


Hide for ten seconds as a Sneaky Snowman within 25m of an opponent 0/10

Snowmen around the map can be used as a hiding place. The tricky part of this is to hide close to an opponent for 10 seconds. You can start a firefight and jump into a snowman to draw someone close to you, but this is very risky.

You can also use a Sneaky Snowmando to set up a snowman hide in it if you struggle to find any on the map.

Destroy holiday decorations 0/10

Holiday decorations have been placed all around the map as part of Winterfest 2021. Simply destroy these using weapons or your harvesting tool to complete this quest.

Give an opponent icy feet with a Chiller Grenade 0/1

Like with the above challenge, you will need to find a Chiller Grenade first and foremost. Once you have one, you'll need to get close to an enemy and throw the grenade at them and hope it lands or that they walk into its path.


It will be visible if it has worked as you see the enemy start slipping around with icy feet!
