Fortnite Operation Snowdown continues with a new challenge, requiring players to destroy five Nutcracker statues.
Another holiday season, another list of Fortnite challenges that offer players cosmetic rewards. Each day that passes, we unlock another way to earn a free item.
Today, we’ll be breaking Nutcracker statues scattered around the map. You can find these located in most of the major POIs, along with all of the Snowmando Outposts that appeared when the event went live.
Places like Lazy Lake, Retail Row, Pleasant Park, Holly Hedges, and Catty Corner all contain Nutcrackers statues, as do the Outposts that you can see, below.
Each location has at least two or three, so you’ll need to visit two of them to complete the challenge. The best route will likely be through the southeast Snowmando Outpost. You can land there, grab two, then move to Catty Corner and Lazy Lake.
As a reward, players will unlock a new Snowmando back bling that fits the Snowmando skin we’ll unlock at the end of the Operation Snowdown event.
As is the case with most of these challenges, the best method will be jumping into a game or two of Team Rumble until you finish.
Keep in mind that the Snowmando Outposts don’t have a 100% spawn rate in this mode, so you may want to stick to the major POIs to ensure you finish as fast as possible. Good luck!
Fortnite Season 6 Week 4 challenge guide
The Fortnite Season 6 Week 4 challenges are almost here. Take a look at everything you need to do for the most XP.
The Fortnite Season 6 Week 4 challenges are here. Take a look at all of the requirements and how to complete the quests.
Another week, another list of challenges for players to complete as they work their way through the Season 6 Battle Pass.
This week, we’ll be playing with the new Recycler, dealing damage with Primal weapons, interacting with wildlife, and much more. Let’s get into it.
Season 6 Week 4 Quests
- Set structures on fire (10)
- Search chests (7)
- Eliminate opponents with weapons of Rare rarity or higher (3)
- Shockwave wildlife using a Shockwave Grenade or Bow (1)
- Tame animals in different matches (3)
- Deal damage to opponents with the Recycler (1000)
- Revive a teammate (1)
The challenges for the week are relatively easy, as most of them can be completed in Team Rumble. Taming and Shockwaving animals are as easy as finding them and making sure you have some Shockwaves on you, but you’ll need to do this in normal modes, as wildlife doesn’t spawn in Team Rumble.
The Recycler, which is the newest weapon added to Fortnite, can be found all across the map. It always seems like Epic jack-up the spawn rate on new weapons, as the Recycler has been easy to find since its release. It might take a while to deal 1,000 damage, though.
Setting structures on fire is easily done with a Gasoline Canister or Firefly Jar. If you hit a build battle with one of these, most of the wood will go up in flames.
The Legendary challenge of the week has players dealing damage with Primal weapons. These weapons include the Primal Bow, Primal SMG, Primal Shotgun, and Primal AR. You get any of these by looting or upgrading Makeshift weapons to Primal weapons by using bones.
The Primal Shotgun is widely considered to be the most overpowered weapon in the game right now, so it’s probably your best outlet for reliable Primal damage. You’ll need to deal 12,500 damage to complete all stages of the Legendary quest, so it’s a good idea to grab as many Primal weapons as you can carry.
Fortnite Spire challenges: how to collect a Cult Talisman
The Fortnite Season 6 Spire quests have players collecting a Cult Talisman from the Guardians. Here’s how to complete this challenge.
The Fortnite Season 6 Spire quests require players to collect a Cult Talisman from a Guardian for Raz. Here’s where you need to go.
Fortnite Season 6 has a sub-plot brewing under the surface, involving some of the new Battle Pass characters. Raz, one of the characters located in Colossal Crops, needs an item called a Cult Talisman so he can finish his disguise.
To complete this quest, you’ll first need to collect Artifacts from Tarana, find Raz, play the last log, complete 5 Uncommon or rarer quests, and retrieve the Cult Artifact from The Spire. After that, you need to take on one of the six Guardians of the island.
Fortnite Cult Talisman location
Once you complete all of the prerequisite quests, you can head to one of the five small Spires on the map to take on one of their Guardians. You’ve probably had a run-in with one of them before, and know how difficult they can be to deal with.
The Guardians have a substantial amount of health and can teleport around you. Landing at one of these locations is extremely dangerous, as you’ll need to fend off players and the deadly Guardian.
Here’s a map of all of the Guardian locations from Fortnite.GG.
Now, along with an Epic Primal AR and the orb required to unlock the Spire Jumpboots, the Assassin will drop a Cult Talisman. You’ll need to collect it by hitting ‘interact’ and bring the artifact to Raz to complete this stage of the quest.
This isn’t the final stage of the Spire questline. We’ll keep you updated with more tips for completing these challenges. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.

The Fortnite Season 6 Spire quests continue, as Raz sends us to collect a Cult Artifact from the Spire. Here’s where you need to go.
The Spire questline is a season-long challenge ark that has us searching some of the new locations added to Fortnite Season 6.
Fortnite Cult Artifact location
As the description of the challenge reveals, you’ll need to go to the Spire to find the Cult Artifact. The Spire is a large location, though, and will have you searching for a while if you don’t know where to go.
The Cult Artifact is in one of the buildings surrounding the Spire. Be careful of the deadly Spire Guardian and her Mythic Primal Shotgun.
Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour, showing you the exact location of the Cult Artifact at the Spire.
As always, we’ll provide more guides for the rest of the challenges as we unlock them. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.
