Epic have officially announced the start of Operation Snowdown 2020 in Fortnite, formerly known as Winterfest.
There are many events that take place in Fortnite and some of these events take place during different holidays. In the past, Epic have released an event called Winterfest, which of course takes place around Christmas time. In this event, different LTMs (Limited Time Modes) are added to the playlist and there are also challenges released, which upon completion gives players free rewards.
This year, this event is called Operation Snowdown instead of Winterfest, and Epic have officially announced what this event will include. You can read more about this event below.
FORTNITE OPERATIONS SNOWDOWN ANNOUNCED
The Operations Snowdown Event is now live in-game and there are two challenges available to complete now and there will be a new challenge released every 24 hours for players to complete. Completing these challenges will award players with different exclusive rewards. Here is the official trailer for the Fortnite Operation Snowdown Event:
Here are the rewards you will earn by completing the challenges:
OPERATIONS SNOWDOWN LTMS
Here are the LTMs that will appear in the playlist during this event:
- Air Royale
- Pickaxe Frenzy
You can also play these LTMs via the Snowdown Shuffle, a playlist that’ll put you in one of the modes at random.
OPERATION SNOWDOWN NEW FORTNITE ITEMS
With the release of this event, there are some new items that have been added to the game, some of which will be familiar to those who played last year.
The X-4 Stormwing planes have returned customized to Snowmando, Sneaky Snowmando’s have been added so you can disguise yourself as an ordinary snowman. Chiller Grenades have also been added, as well as Snowmando-wrapped Presents!
The Snowy Flopper item has also been added and you can see what it looks like below:
FORTNITE WINTERFEST PRESENT
Last year, Epic had added something new to the game, which was allowing players to open up a present each day of the event and they would receive free Skins and other cosmetics. This has not returned this year, disappointed a few fans.
Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far
The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.
Leaked Map Stages
All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.
Leaked Quest Voice Line
Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.
A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:
“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”
According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.
Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.
Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25
In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.
Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.
We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
Leak: S.T.A.R.S. Team and El Chapulín Colorado to Return Very Soon
Fortnite has re-added multiple Item Shop sections to its API, meaning they will be available very soon. Five existing sections have also been removed, suggesting Epic doesn’t plan to bring those Sets back to the Item Shop for a while.
Re-added Item Shop Sections:
- S.T.A.R.S. Team
- El Chapulín Colorado
- Wu Wear (new)
Removed Item Shop Sections:
- Silk Sonic
- Chloe Kim
- Cobra Kai
- Turn The Music Up
The ‘Wu Wear’ section, which was added to the API today, will contain the new Wu-Tang Clan cosmetics; featuring two Outfits, two Bundles and more.
We’ll keep you updated if any additional sections are changed.
