Apart from this, you will get one more cute Santa outfit for free called Guff Gringle Outfit, and you can redeem it by launching the game from Epic Games Store and then going to the Item Shop.
Not only this, but the players who log into Fortnite anytime during the event will receive Chill-la-la-Llama Back Bling as soon as they enter the game.
The list of free presents does not end here, as you will also be receiving a free Curling Iron Emote for playing the game with five different friends during Winterfest 2022, and the rewards will be distributed to players starting around January 6.
Two winter-themed outfits, including Snowdancer and Cozy Knit Jones, will also be making their way to the store during the event.
Last but not least, you will also be able to complete Winterfest-themed "This Week" weekly quests for XP. There will be two sets of these quests, and the first will run from December 13 (9 AM ET) to December 20 (9 AM ET), while the second will run from December 20 (9 AM ET) to December 27 (9 AM ET).
