Fortnite’s Winterfest 2020 event, otherwise known as Operation Snowdown, has begun and we’ve got all the info on the challenges, how you can complete them, and what rewards they’re offering.

Epic Games’ huge Christmas Fornite event is underway and there’s a range of cosmetic rewards to earn. These unlocks are all tied to specific challenges that will need to be completed in-game.

Luckily for us, they’re relatively simple and shouldn’t take too long for players to finish up. Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about Operation Snowdown’s challenges and rewards.
