All Holiday Trees Fortnite Locations: Dance at Different Holiday Trees 2020

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here’s the Fortnite locations of where to find and dance at different holiday trees in Fortnite 2020.

Epic Games finally launched the Fortnite Operation Snowdown Christmas event yesterday, three days after the last major Fortnite update was released. As expected, players can complete Operation Snowdown challenges and get an exclusive snowman cosmetic reward for each quest completed along with 10,000 season xp.

Epic also added back planes in Fortnite and they now have a gas tank, preventing players from spending the entire game flying around the map trying to get an easy win. Presents, Chiller Grenades, and Sneaky Snowmandos have all returned for the event which is set to end on January 5th.

Two challenges were available yesterday to complete, both of which require players to know the Snowmando Outposts Fortnite locations. When the challenge first released, there were issues with players not being able to see the outposts. However, it seems like this issue has been fixed and all players can complete the challenge.

A new challenge will release each day and today’s challenge requires players to dance at different holiday trees in Fortnite. We’ve had a dance at different Fortnite holiday trees for two years running, so I’m not surprised we’re getting the exact same challenge again.

Here are all the holiday trees location in Fortnite for the Operation Snowdown 2020 event.

Fortnite Holiday Trees Locations 2020

Here are all the Holiday Tree Fortnite locations for Operation Snowdown 2020:

  • Craggy Cliffs

Craggy Cliffs

You can find the Holiday Tree at Craggy Cliff to the left of the Fish Sticks restaurant as you’re dropping in. It’s right next to the reboot van as shown below.

Fortnite Winterfest 2020 Christmas Event – When is Winterfest 2020 Start Date

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It looks like we have some clues as to when Fortnite Winterfest 2020 begins.

Epic Games released the v15.10 Fortnite update earlier this week. Three new weapons were added to the game including the big chill and level action rifle. Players were unhappy tha the Fortnite Winterfest 2020 Christmas event didn’t go live as soon as the servers were back up after the scheduled maintenace.

A couple of days ago, it started snowing in Fortnite which usually happens when the Fortnite Christmas event is near. According to data-miners, there won’t be any more snow falling on the map. However, when the Winterfest event begins, the whole map will likely be covered in snow and we’ll get snow storms like we did last year.

Players are now waiting to see when the Fortnite Winterfest 2020 Christmas event will begin and we have a couple of clues as to when it’ll start.

When is Fortnite Winterfest 2020?

Although there’s no official announcement, all signs point towards Fortnite Winterfest 2020 starting today, December 18th. The Fortnite Item Shop will reset at 9 AM ET (2 PM GMT) which is usually when event challenges release.

UPDATE: First challenges ARE LIVE CLICK HERE.

Furthermore, Epic Games are providing the Sing Along emote to everyone for free. Players will able to get the emote at the same time the item shop resets, 9 AM ET (2 PM GMT). Finally, the Christmas event from last year began on December 18th as well, making it more likely it’ll start today.

For those of you that aren’t aware, this years Christmas event will be called Operation Snowdown. There won’t be a cabin like there was last year, but there will still be challenges which provides players with the chance to get 2 free Fortnite skins.

There’s a bunch of other cosmetics too and it’s likely we’ll be in for more surprises once Epic Games finally make an official announcement on the event. Be sure to stay tuned as we should see an announcement in a few hours.

Fortnite Operation Snowdown Challenges & Rewards Now Available

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Fortnite Operation Snowdown challenges and rewards are now available for players to complete.

In the v15.10 Fortnite Update, data-miners leaked the Operation Snowdown challenges and rewards. Operation Snowdown is the replacement for the Winterfest Fortnite Christmas event this year.

Similar to last year, players can earn two free Fortnite skins, but this year it’s slightly different. Instead of getting the cosmetics from presents in the Winterfest Cabin, players will need to complete challenges to unlock the skins.

The two free skins are Frost Squad, leaked in the v15.00 update, and Snowmando which was added in the latest update on Tuesday. When the servers were online after scheduled maintenance, players were unhappy the Christmas event hadn’t gone live yet. However, in an to content creators, Epic stated that Operation Snowdown would go live later during the week.

The event is now live and the first set of Operation Snowdown challenges are now available to complete. For each challenge, players will get an exclusive reward. Once players complete nine challenges, they’ll unlock the Snowmando skin, complete all the challenges and you’ll get the Frost Squad skin.

The first two Fortnite Operation Snowdown challenges are now available along with their rewards.

These challenges are fairly easy to complete and shouldn’t take you long. However, we’ll be releasing a guide shortly on where to find the Snowmando Outposts in Fortnite.

Operation Snowdown Day 1 Fortnite Rewards

Upon completing the two challenges above, players will be rewarded with a loading screen and back bling. It’s definitely not the best rewards during the Christmas event, but they’ll get better the closer to Christmas we get.

The loading screen reward is called Frost in Action and can be seen below:

Planes in Fortnite are back. Here’s where you can find planes in Fortnite in Chapter 2 season 5.

Epic Games released the last major update of the year on Tuesday, v15.10. Data-miners leaked the Operation Snowdown rewards and challenges and today the first set of challenges went live at 2 PM ET.

We’ll have one new Fortnite Operation Snowdown challenge each day and each challenge will provide players with one new exclusive Snowdown reward along with 10,000 season 5 xp.

When players complete nine challenges, they’ll get the Snowman Snowmando Fortnite skin. Once all the challenges are completed, you’ll unlock the Frost Squad skin that was leaked when season 5 began.

Prior to the Operation Snowdown starting, Epic Games sent emails to players in Russia teasing the an unreleased Candy Cane skin along with planes. Now that the Christmas event has started, planes have returned in Fortnite and here’s where you can find.

All planes locations in Fortnite

You probably know that one of the Fortnite Operation Snowdown challenges require players to visit different Snowmando outposts. Not only are the location of these outposts required for completing the first two challenges, but they are where planes spawn

If you find one of the red outposts, you’ll find at least one plane spawn within walking distance. Some locations will spawn three Fortnite planes and we’ve found that the one near Catty Corner usually is home to three plane Fortnite spawns.

Here’s where you can find planes in Fortnite:

You’ll have to keep into consideration that these outposts are glitchy at the moment. Some players can’t see the outposts or the planes in normal game modes, however, they can see them in Battle Labs perfectly find.

We’ll have to wait on Epic Games to release a patch to fix the issue with the outposts, but at least you know where to find planes in Fortnite season 5. Planes were a nightmare when they were first added in back chapter 1 due to Epic overpowering them. Players could easily rack up kills whilst using them and it forced Epic to vault them several times and nerf them to oblivion.

For those of you that weren’t around when they were originally released, I’m sure you’ll have fun taking them to the skies!

Here is where you can find and find and visit all different Snowmando outposts in Fortnite.

Epic Games released the v15.10 Fortnite update three days ago. The servers were only down for an hour and the update added a brand new Fortnite weapon in the form of the lever Action Rifle.

Once the servers were back up after scheduled maintenance, players were unhappy that the Fortnite Winterfest Christmas event wasn’t in the game. Epic announced through an email to everyone in the support-a-creator program that this years Christmas Fortnite event would be called Operation Snowdown.

Players can still get free rewards through challenges including two exclusive free Fortnite skins, Snowmando and Frost Squad. There’ll also be other cosmetic rewards available along with brand new LTMs and fan favourite LTMs returning.

We’ll also be getting Black Panther Wakanda Forever Fortnite challenges. These challenges will provide players with a Black Panther Fortnite emote called Wakanda Forever. We don’t know if there will be a Black Panther skin, but it seems unlikely.

One of the Operation Snowdown Fortnite challenges/quests requires players to visit different Snowmando Outposts. Here are the locations of where you can find and visit different Snowmando Outposts in Fortnite.

If you’re wondering where to visit different Snowmando Outposts, you probably have no idea where the Snowmando Outposts locations are on the map. It seems as though they haven’t been added in the game just yet, so no one is able to complete the challenge.

Be sure to check back every few minutes as we’ll be checking every minute to see when the outposts are added to the game. We’ll have a full guide shortly.

UPDATE: We have found one south of Holly Hedges! Map location coming shortly! It looks like these can only be seen in Team Rumble from what I’ve gathered. There’s one south of Holly Hedges by the Durrr Burger restaurant as seen below. NOTE: If you can’t see them there’s either a glitch or the spawns change.
