Fortnite Snowmando Outpost locations for Operation Snowdown

Fortnite Operation Snowdown is here. Take a look at all of the Snowmando Outpost locations for the day-one challenges.

Published

Operation Snowdown – the 2020 Fortnite winter event – is here, bringing daily challenges for players to complete. Here are all of the Snowmando Outpost locations for the first day’s challenges.

Day one of Operation Snowdown has players searching around the map for Snowmando Outposts, filled with chests and the return of the X-4 Stormwing.

Today, players will be visiting these locations and searching for chests. You’ll need to visit five different outposts and search five chests while you’re there. With so many players attempting this challenge, you’ll probably have some competition when it comes to finding the chests.

Here are the five Snowmando Outposts you need to visit for the challenge. Since the planes spawn here, you can complete your “eliminations while in a vehicle” challenge if it’s too contested.

As we suggested, finding chests is going to be the hard part of today’s challenge. There only appears to be one or two in each location, with no guarantee that any will spawn where you land.

Your best bet for finding chests will likely be the Snowmado Outpost next to the Weather Station on the mountain. There’s at least two chest spawns here, giving you the best chance of grabbing one of them.

Interestingly, the Snowmando Outposts don’t spawn in Team Rumble. This will make the “Search Chests” stage of this challenge a lot more difficult, as we’ll be competing for them with other players in Solos.

As a reward, we’ll be receiving a new loading screen and a holiday-themed shield back bling – both worthy of our time. Good luck!

Fortnite Winter Trials event & rewards leaked

Epic Games quickly added and removed a webpage that revealed a new Fortnite event: Winter Trials. Here’s everything we know so far.

Published

on

Epic Games released a new website, announcing the Fortnite Winter Trials. They have since removed the site, leading fans to believe it was leaked early.

Most of the time, when we’re discussing Fortnite leaks, we’re talking about data miners finding files in the game that relate to certain events, skins, etc. In rare cases, Epic let something slip a bit early. That’s what we have here.

On January 25, Epic released the Fortnite Winter Trials webpage, showcasing free rewards, an influencer tournament, community voting on events, and more.

The website was quickly removed after it was added, but data miner Hypex was able to record some of the contents before it went down.

The details of the event are still limited, but it appears as though players will be earning badges for logging in, voting for challenges, and playing Fortnite.

Over the course of the rest of the season, your playtime and badges will reward you with free cosmetics. Most of them are hidden, but we know about a spray, emoticon, and weapon wrap from the images on the website.

We should see an official announcement of the event soon. Since Epic were the ones who jumped the gun, we expect to see them announce the event as soon as tomorrow – if not later tonight.

We’ll update this post when we learn more about the event, along with additional details on how to earn free cosmetics. Stay tuned.

Fortnite tease new Drift Crew skins

Published

on

Epic Games are dropping some cryptic hints relating to the iconic Drift character in Fortnite, and speculation suggests it’s all leading to a new Drift Crew skin.

On January 24, Epic Games posted a series of mysterious tweets, to get the community guessing.

Their first post referenced Drift directly, saying: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” A series of messages followed, asking for help – presumably Drift’s help.

The Fortnite account has since deleted the tweets, but here’s a screenshot of all of them from iFireMonkey.

Data miner HYPEX was quick to highlight that these teasers are almost certainly connected to the upcoming new Drift Skin, which appears to be a female version of the fan-favorite skin.

Fortnite Crew is the monthly subscription service, and it’s expected that this new Drift skin will be included in the February edition of the subscription rewards.

Fortnite Monthly Crew Pack
The Fortnite Crew subscription includes V-Bucks plus cosmetic rewards.

The subscription grants players each new Battle Pass, plus 1,000 V-Bucks, in addition to the cosmetic rewards.

We’ll have to wait and see confirmation about the new Drift skin as we put January in the rearview mirror and move into February.

Today’s Fortnite v15.21 update has shaken things up again in the battle royale game, adding Predator and a brand new Mythic Item to the mix.

The game has been subject to weekly updates for a long time now, meaning content is given a slight refresh some weeks, and on others things can change a bit more dramatically.

On January 20, after the latest patch was rolled out, it’s fair to say that not a lot of things have been tweaked.

In the absence of official patch notes, which have been vaulted since before Chapter 2 even began, we’ve rounded up the changes confirmed already by players and leaks.

Predator

Predator is the latest crossover character to arrive in Fortnite, now available to fight at the Stealthy Stronghold location. The skin is also coming to the Fortnite Item Shop, along with some cosmetics – such as a pickaxe.

New Mythic Item: Predator Cloak Device

One of the biggest, and most exciting, elements of Predator’s arrival is the new Mythic Item it adds to the game. The Predator Cloak Device is now active in-game, and once it’s been found and activated, players can use it to turn invisible.

To get one, check out our complete guide here. It’s fairly easy to achieve.

New Quests

More Quests have been added to the Battle Pass for Season 5, following the v15.21 update.

The full list of these can be seen below, courtesy of HYPEX.

Bug fixes and other changes

According to the official Fortnite Trello board, a number of things have changed – including general issues and things specifically impacting the BR mode.

General Top Issues

  • When playing Fortnite, players cannot create system-level parties that include players on both PS5 and PS4.
  • The Jumpshot Outfit is missing its facial hair.
  • The Banner menu may be unresponsive to controller inputs, causing players to have difficulty editing their Banner with a controller or the Banner not updating properly.
  • We’re investigating an issue that is causing players to experience a long loading screen after completing a session on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
  • The sound effect of certain actions, such as opening a Chest or hitting a Weak Point, may be delayed.

Battle Royale

  • In competitive playlists, players do not have access to their persistent stash of Bars. Instead, they are granted a set amount at the beginning of each match. This is intended. However, your end total of Bars in competitive playlists may appear in the Lobby in place of your persistent stash. This is a visual issue only.
  • The weekly Legendary Quest to ‘Get Headshots’ is not always visible after completing the first stage of the quest.
  • Players may receive damage mid-air when falling inside a car.
  • Players and Spectators may notice inconsistent camera behavior or stuttering after being near a Car they recently drove then exited.
  • Total Bars appearing as 0 in a match.
  • Assets appearing invisible in Performance Mode alpha.
  • Game freezing when going to the Compete tab on PlayStation/Xbox.
  • Sand Tunneling temporarily disabled.

As is the case every week with these unofficial patch notes, it’s an ever changing beast. If we find something that’s changed and not been included here in the Fortnite v15.21 patch notes, we’ll update you as quickly as we can.

Until then, jump in and see for yourself! Remember to thank the bus driver…
