Fortnite – Operation: Snowdown Challenges

Are you ready for Operation: Snowdown?!?!

Winterfest, as we all know it, may be intertwined with Operation: Snowdown, as Snowmando, is an NPC on the map giving you quests! Go see him and begin the fun.

Operation Snowdown Challenges

Below is a list of all Operation: Snowdown Challenges that you'll encounter in Fortnite. We hope you're ready as Operation Snowdown has begun!

Complete all the Operation: Snowdown Quests and earn a ton of free snowy cosmetics, including two exclusive Outfits - Snowmando and Frost Squad! For each challenge, you complete, not only do you get XP you also get a free item!

How Operation Snowdown works is that four of the challenges are available from the get-go, and then every day, spread over 12 days, one more challenge is going to unlock for you to complete. So you have 2 Weeks and 3 Days to complete all the challenges.

  • December 18 - The first four challenges are below.
  • December 19
    • Dance at different Holiday trees (0/5) - Snow Strike - 10,000 XP
  • December 20
    • Place Top 10 with friends in squads (0/3) - Snow Steel - 20,000XP
  • December 21
    • Destroy Nutcracker statues (0/5) - Blustery Bag - 10,000 XP
  • December 22
    • Travel 5,000 meters in X-4 Stormwings (0/5000) - Snowblaster - 10,000 XP
  • December 23
    • Both of these share the same cosmetic, so it'll be either one of these. Only one will appear.
      • Shoot down opponent structures with X-4 Stormwings (0/10) - Winter Wing - 10,000 XP
      • Use Chiller Launcher to apply ice feet to opponents (0/10) - Winter Wing - 10,000 XP
  • December 24
  • December 25
    • Catch a Snowy Flopper (0/1) - Toe Pick - 10,000 XP
  • December 26
  • December 27
    • Hide inside a Sneaky Snowmando in different matches (0/3) - Merry Fishmas
  • December 28
  • December 29
    • Deal damage with Lever Action Rifle (0/100) - Fish Fest - 10,000 XP
  • December 30
    • Stoke a campfire (0/2) - Confetti - 10,000 XP

Out of the leak, the only one missing is the Complete Epic Quests (0/73), and two challenges have the same cosmetic, so we are unsure which of the two will be the actual challenge.

This event is chalked to the brim with an assortment of fun things to do. It's sure to keep you occupied over the holiday season! Especially with some Frozen goodies to collect on the way.

Due to the 15.10 update, many leaks have happened, so why not look at our Leaked Skins page and see all the new upcoming things coming!

  1. Thanks for telling us when each challenge comes out! Also it looks like you can get the snowmando skin by christmas!

    1. You’re very welcome 😀

  2. Thanks for adding the dates for when the challenges come out! Also it looks like if you do all your challenges on time you get the snowmando skin on Christmas

  3. Yes! Its finally here!

  4. I was wondering are these rewards including winterfest presents?

    1. We’re not sure if Winterfest is even giving out presents this year. It’s been a really strange season. Hopefully, when everything goes live, we’ll know for definite.

      1. Ok thanks for the help 🙂

  5. FireMonkey has tweeted the cosmetic rewards for each challenge

    1. Just did it 😀

  6. did you get rid of my comments if so why?

    1. nvmnd

  7. Also for the use chiller launcher to ice people do we have to do it to 10 people because that sounds like a lot of gold to spend if it costs 1200 gold.

    1. sorry it costs 1,455 gold

  8. Hey I was just wondering what time is the update coming out if you could tell me that would be greatly appreciated. P.S. dogs are the best.

    1. We are not sure yet! For the Chiller Launcher, I’m not too sure if the same person can be used once Icy Feet has worn off. But yeah, I believe it’s the most expensive Exotic in the game at the moment.

      1. ok thanks for the help 🙂

        1. You’re very welcome!

        2. Anytime. Let us know how you get on 😀

  9. With the skin challenges do i have to do 73 epic quests to unlock them or is it just do the operation snowdown challenges?

    1. Ah, sorry, I didn’t realise it came across that way, thank you for the heads up! To get the two free skins you just do the operation challenges, the 73 quests are just another challenge to do.

      1. thanks
