A free skin is up for grabs in Fortnite called the Wooly Warrior and here’s how you can claim that mammoth-themed skin.

The Fortnite Wooly Warrior skin will be closing out the Winterfest festivities and players will be able to scoop it up free of charge.

In fact, this isn’t even the first free skin given away as part of Winterfest. The first is the Lt. Evergreen skin, which players were able to open up earlier in the event.

The Lt. Evergreen is also available for free.

How to get the Wooly Warrior for free

This Wooly Warrior skin will be given away as one of the final gifts during Winterfest. Everyone guessed it was hiding in the unopenable gift and they were correct.

Depending on how players opened their gifts, they could have earned this skin as early as December 28. For everyone else, they just had to wait a couple more days.

Epic GamesPlayers will unlock the ‘Wooly Warrior’ skin as the final Winterfest present.

All we’re looking to do here is open up the big green present. Once you do that, this skin will be added to your inventory. No matter what, if you log in before the event concludes, you’ll be able to get the skin for free.

One thing that helps set the Wooly Warrior apart from its Lt. Evergreen predecessor is it has more of a winter feel to it. The Evergreen skin is tied to the holidays, which have since passed, so a lot of people have already retired it for the year.

Epic GamesWinterfest provided players with plenty of free items.

Even if this isn’t a cosmetic you plan on wearing a whole lot, it’s hard to turn down a free gift. You can still open gifts even if you haven’t played during all of Winterfest, so you still have time to claim some free rewards.

Very rarely is an entire skin given away for free, let alone two, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity. Winterfest is expected to end on January 6 so there’s still some time left, but not much.


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
