Fortnite’s first challenge of 2020 has been revealed and players are going to have to set off fireworks for Day 15 of Winterfest in order to land themselves with yet another reward. 

There are a number of fireworks scattered around the Fortnite Battle Royale map, all of which could be set off for previous challenges, however, there’s something different about them this time. They’ve frozen over!

For this mission, in particular, you’re going to need to visit three of the map’s most popular destinations and quickly light one of the frozen explosives. Watch out, though, as it won’t only be you trying to do it.

All frozen firework locations in Fortnite

Frozen fireworks have been dotted around at Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs and Dirty Docks, but all you have to do is light at least one at each of these places.

The spawning for them does appear to be inconsistent, although the main areas they tend to appear have been highlighted in our map below – which should save you some time at least.

After all, some players might be looking on top of buildings for fireworks, when really they’re mostly near water. Let’s take a look at all of the frozen firework locations.

Once you have landed at these points of interest, it’s important to act fast when you spot the fireworks.


There’s a good chance that flocks of players will be trying to beat you to them in some games, and once they have been set off by somebody else, you will have to wait until the next game to have another chance.

Once you have set off fireworks at each of these destinations, it’s fair to say that you will be dropping at different spots in style with this new cosmetic.
