Fortnite How to Get The Christmas Tree Skin

If you're looking to get that new Christmas Tree skin then you can get it pretty easily for free via the Winterfest Cabin! The actual name of this outfit is Lt. Evergreen and he is lurking in the cabin waiting for you to find him! You will want to grab him before the event is over, because this is one of the few times that Epic gives away a free skin.

As mentioned, this is a very rare thing that Epic is doing for this holiday season. They do not often giveaway full skins, so being able to get one so easily is worth logging into obtain! It is a very simple process, and it's just a bit hidden on how exactly to grab it.

How to Get the Christmas Tree Skin in Fortnite

To obtain the Christmas Tree skin, you will need to press on the snowflake icon at the top of your screen while you are logged into Fortnite. Once you've hit that, you can then press on Visit Lodge icon at the bottom right of menu.

Once you hit that button, you will enter into the Winterfest Lodge! You will notice a Christmas tree to the right of the screen that is just behind the Crackshot skin. Before, you weren't able to do anything with this, but now you can click over to this section and highlight it. Once you're hovering over it, you should get the "Just a Tree." prompt.

Click on that and it should give you the option to hold a button to open! That's all you will need to do, once you open it up you will get the Lt. Evergreen skin, along with  the Re-Gifter Back Bling! The Lt. Evergreen outfit comes with an exclusive emote called Light Up.

If you're still struggling, you can check out this video on how it is obtained:

  1. I’m not sure if I need to wait until I can open a present, but it doesn’t work on console.

    1. Does it work for ps4?

    2. You do need to wait.

  2. Hey, Evident, whenever I try to recieve the Lt. Evergreen skin, my game hangs. It just gets stuck, and doesn’t even show me the screen that tells me I got a skin and whether I should just claim it or equip it. Do you know why this is happening?

    1. It’s because the skin is considered a gift and you need to wait until you can open a gift

    2. No idea, sorry.

      1. Ever time I go to open the tree it just freezes then kicks me out does this mean I don’t get this skin at all?

        1. Talk to Epic support.

          1. I think it’s because you opened up your daily gift before going to the tree. This is what happened when I opened my daily present before I went to the tree.

  3. If I open this tree, will I still be able to open the rest of the presents, or do I have to chose between the mammoth or the tree?

    1. You will still be able to open up all of the presents.

  4. Whenever I do it, it makes the noise as if I got it, but nothing is awarded to me and I get stuck in the cabin because all buttons went away

    1. Just wait until tomorrow and open it instead of your present and then it’ll work fine, that’s what I’m doing tomorrow.

  5. Can you do this if you already have opened your daily present?

    1. Why iOS can Not open a tree.

    2. No, you’ll need to wait until tomorrow.

  6. I’m on xbox and this isn’t working

    1. You just need to wait until tomorrow and open it instead of one of your presents
