Winterfest Leaks (Free Christmas Skin), Battle Pass Super Styles and More

Buckle up for a few festive weeks as Fortnite’s annual Winterfest celebration is right around the corner.

Fortnite Chapter 3’s first content update is already here, but it hasn’t brought much content…yet. This patch mostly sets everything up for Winterfest in a few days, but there’s still an intro or two left.

Super Level Styles

New super tier styles have been added for Season 1 Battle Pass skins. You will start unlocking these awesome outfit alternatives for Shanta, Ronin, Lt. level 140.

Personally, I think the Photo Negative, Scarlet Blackout, and Gilded Reality styles look great. Check them out below on Spider-Man courtesy of @HYPEX:

Gameplay changes

A few major bugs were fixed in Tuesday’s patch, including the irritating screen shake that often happened when you swiped or slid. Split-screen mode has also been re-enabled.

No other weapon balance adjustments have been made since last week. However, the ammo count of the Stinger SMG and Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper now refresh earlier in the reload animation.

Winterfest 2021

Leakers have confirmed that this year’s Winterfest event is set to run from December 16 to January 6. Epic didn’t give away much in their blog post, but it looks like it will be quite similar to previous ones.

According to @iFireMonkey, “The Winterfest 2021 cabin will be in creative mode and will be a hub to connect you to creative games outside of the Winterfest event”. There will again be gifts to open every day with free rewards and winter-themed challenges to complete.

Excitingly, @HYPEX mentioned that there will be two free skins up for grabs this time around. One is a frozen version of the popular Peely outfit and the other is a Christmas version of Isabelle, originally designed by concept artist @D3NNI_yt. Additionally, a Blizzabelle blue bonus style will be an exclusive free pack through the Epic Games Store for PC players.

As usual, we can also expect Christmas trees to appear around the island, a special Battle Bus, and maybe a few new surprises. More winter cosmetics will appear in the Item Shop soon, including the upcoming Black Ice Legends Pack.
