Epic Games have revealed a brand new Winterfest challenge for Fortnite Battle Royale and players are going to have to visit three different locations to complete it. 

The Winterfest Day 14 challenge was released on December 31, following on from a number of festive missions released this winter. There’s a fresh reward up for grabs as well, but let’s focus on how to complete it first.

You will need to visit Crackshot’s Cabin, Mr. Polar’s Artisanal Ice, and The Workshop in order to finish the task successfully. While landing at three different spots might not sound too difficult, knowing where they are will make things a hell of a lot faster for you.

So, let’s take a look at where to find them.

The worst thing about these three places is that they’re so far apart from one another, making it more difficult to check all of them off in one game. However, it’s surely not impossible.

As our map shows, Crackshot’s Cabin can be found near the Eye Land landmark in the middle of the map, whereas the others are more or less on the coasts of the Fortnite island.

Mr. Polar’s Artisanal Ice is based at Dirty Docks (red below), while The Workshop is between Holly Hedges and Slurpy Swamp (blue below). If those directions aren’t specific enough for you, don’t worry, we’ve marked all three on the graphic below to make things even easier.

Fortnite players demand broken “pay to lose” Baby Yoda back bling is fixed

Fortnite players have discovered a bug that’s rendering their Baby Yoda aka The Child back bling cosmetic useless, as it stops them from being able to aim properly.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale introduced a major crossover when The Mandalorian made his way onto The Island. As well as a skin, a glider, and Beskar armor, there’s also a Baby Yoda back bling for players to unlock.

Claiming the Baby Yoda back bling is no easy feat, as players need to reach Level 100 of their Battle Pass to be able to carry the adorable Grogu on their back. This means plenty of grinding and weekly challenges to earn that all-important XP.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 has been out for a while, players are slowly starting to unlock the Baby Yoda back bling, but many of them are facing disappointment upon learning that their hard-earned reward is broken.

Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling is broken

In a Fortnite subreddit thread which has gained over 10k upvotes, Reddit user SweggyBoi highlighted the issue at hand: When you have Baby Yoda equipped, you can’t see where you’re aiming at all as it blocks more than half of the screen.

The problem seems to occur when the player enters and exits a car, causing Baby Yoda to become static. This is likely because the back bling hovers behind the player, rather than resting directly against their back as capes and backpacks do

You can see the moment where Baby Yoda blocks the player’s screen in Fortnite below. SweggyBoi and a number of other Reddit users have called on Epic to acknowledge and fix the problem.

Of course, an easy fix for this problem would be to simply not use the Baby Yoda back bling. But when most players have spent real money on the Battle Pass and dedicated hours of gameplay to unlocking the cosmetic, their frustration is understandable.

“How the f**k did this pass playtests?” asked one Reddit user, while another added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

Others highlighted a different problem with Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling: “Because it sticks so far out from your back, when you’re hiding it either clips through the wall or shows around the corner.”

While the recent customizable superhero skin controversy resulted in players accusing Epic of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, the Baby Yoda back bling is being jokingly referred to as “pay to lose” as it’s actually hindering players’ performance.

Hopefully, Epic Games will issue some sort of fix for this problem in the near future.
