This simple glitch shared by YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken allows Fortnite players to open up their final Winterfest present, the Wooly Warrior skin, a day early in Fortnite.

After many days of additional rewards and challenges, Fortnite’s Winterfest event is beginning to come to a close with only a few days remaining until its scheduled end date, January 2.

However, some of the popular battle royale’s players have managed to find an exploit in-game that allows the player to unlock the final present – the Wooly Warrior skin early.

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

Popular YouTuber Ali-A was among one of the first to share the glitch, which allows players to open up their final in-game present a day early.

Ali-A explains that players will need to visit the Winterfest Lodge from the main menu and then only open the presents that are on the left side of the room, while leaving those on the right side unopened.

“The reason I told you to avoid the right-hand side is that you cannot have opened any of these three because you have to, if we go to the left-hand side, have opened all of them up apart from the green one,” the YouTuber explained highlighting the glitch’s process.

Topic starts at 0:54 for mobile users.

For some reason, once the presents have been opened in this order, this glitch allows players to unlock the final present in the lodge a day early.

As the bug only works for those who have not yet opened the presents on the right side of the Winterfest Lodge, there will be many fans who will just have to wait until the final present becomes unlocked.

The reward for opening the final in-game gift is a rare character skin called ‘Wooly Warrior’, allowing you to dress up as a mammoth in Fortnite.

Although the Fortnite Winterfest event is set to finish on January 2, fans of the popular battle royale will have until January 7 to claim any of their missed presents during the holiday season.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
