As part of the Fortnite Winterfest 2021 celebrations, players will be able to open a new present each day, but which one contains free skins? And what’s the final gift going to be?
Winterfest 2021 is finally here, giving Fortnite fans three weeks full of content to discover including unvaulted items like the Snowball Launcher, Spider-Man and MJ skins in the shop, and a new set of Winterfest Quests to complete.
Perhaps the most exciting part, though, is the ability to unwrap a new present every day for 14 days by visiting Crackshot’s Cabin, where Sgt. Winter will be waiting with free Skins, Pickaxes, Wraps, and more to add to your Locker.
Below, you’ll find all the details we know about the contents of these presents so far, including how to get those elusive Krisabelle and Polar Peely skins, as well as details of the bonus final Winterfest present.
Make sure you open every present during Winterfest for some great rewards.
How to open presents in Fortnite Winterfest 2021
In order to start unwrapping your presents in Fortnite, make sure you’re on the lobby screen then scroll across until you hit the snowflake tab. Select ‘visit Lodge’ and choose the present you want to open.
Remember to return each day for the next 14 days to unwrap more! Don’t worry if you miss a day or two, as you’ll be able to catch up on any unopened presents as long as you log in before January 6, 2022.
You’ll be able to unwrap a new present every day at 9am PT | 12pm ET | 5pm GMT.

While you’re here, make sure you check out the fireplace for some bonus XP, too.
How to get free Krisabelle & Polar Peely skins in Fortnite
It’s very rare that skins are given away for free in Fortnite, so most players will be looking for tips on how to get the Krisabelle and Polar Peely skins as quickly as possible – but they’re also the hardest to unlock.
Krisabelle and Polar Peely are available for players who open all of the presents.
In order to get the Krisabelle skin, you’ll need to claim the six presents blocking her way, so you’ll have to wait until at least Day 7 of Winterfest 2021 (that’s December 22) before you can get that skin.
As for the Polar Peely skin, you’ll simply have to wait for the frozen ice block to thaw. Fortunately, that’s now happened, so you can claim your winter-themed Peely skin any time you like.
What’s the final present going to be?
Following hours of server downtime on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, many players noticed they had been given a spare token for one extra present, despite already opening every present at Crackshot’s Cabin.
Epic have confirmed in a tweet that they’ll be giving an update soon on what the extra present will be, teasing that they’ll also be helping players “make up for lost time” following the outage.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed for something Spider-Man related, especially as a glitch has been showing all presents as being ‘from MJ’ for some players – but for now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
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.
