Fortnite is celebrating the festive season with all of us with a new set of Winterfest challenges that give players new things to do and plenty of rewards to unlock.

If the cold weather brought on by winter has you stuck inside the house all day, you can make use of that time by working through the Winterfest challenges.

There are 14 different challenges in total, to celebrate the 14 days of Christmas, and they will require you to check out the new locations on the map and try out all of the added items for the event.

Epic GamesWinter has arrived in Fortnite Chapter 2, bringing an all new location called Shiver Inn.

Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed the entire list of challenges so players can get an early head start on what to expect from them. The full list can be found below as well as the rewards.

Fortnite 14 Days of Christmas challenges and rewards

  • Search holiday stockings in the Winterfest Cabin
  • Stoke a Campfire
  • Eliminations with an Unvaulted Weapon
  • Hide Inside a Sneaky Snowman in Different Matches
  • Warm Yourself by the Fireplace in the Winterfest Cabin
  • Dance at Holiday Trees in Different Named Locations
  • Search a Chest within 60 Seconds After Landing from the Battle Bus
  • Use Presents
  • Open Frozen Loot

  • (???)
  • Search Ice Boxes
  • Light a Frozen Firework found on the beaches in Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs or Dirty Docks
  • Search Ammo Boxes at The Workshop, Shiver Inn or Ice Throne

A few items from last year make an appearance once again, such as the Sneaky Snowman, so if you’re a long-time Fortnite player you’ll see some familiar faces while looking through the list.

As an added bonus, you won’t have to purchase the Battle Pass to have access to any of these challenges so they are available to you completely free of charge.

Challenges like these are an excellent way for players to get some free cosmetics so they aren’t forced to run around in the game without a skin.

Keep in mind that one of the 14 is still missing so we’ll have to wait and see what that mysterious one is.

Make sure you complete every challenge available so you’re able to get all of the rewards and show them off to your friends! The snow will eventually melt and these challenges will disappear so get out there while you can.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
