How does Fortnite celebrate the dawn of a new decade? With a free item declaring the new year. How does one get it?
The item is a glider with a big “2020” imprinted across it, and to collect it, you have to participate in a new Winterfest challenge. Head to the Winterfest Lodge and click the snowflake icon on the menu…you’ll find something called the Frozen Firework Challenge stuffed in a stocking next to the fireplace.
What you have to do to earn the glider is set off a firework in your next game. There are three on the map — one in Sweaty Sands, one on Craggy Cliffs and one on the beaches of Dirty Docks. The first person to reach each firework is the first to reap the reward, so there can only be three recipients each match. So if at first you don’t succeed, glide, glide again.
The 2020 glider will only be available in Fortnite for a limited time. It and everything else that has to do with Winterfest will disappear on January 7.
