CHILL SNOWMANDO QUESTS, FREE REWARDS
Over the course of Operation Snowdown, Snowmando will offer Quests you can complete for free rewards, including the perfectly-wrapped Shield Surprise Back Bling, the snowglobe-topped Frosty Globes Pickaxe, as well as Gliders, Wraps, another Back Bling and Pickaxe, and more.
If you complete nine Operation Snowdown Quests, you’ll unlock the Snowmando Outfit, and if you complete twelve, you’ll unlock the winter-inspired Frost Squad Outfit. Both Outfits are free!
Here are some of the Christmas-themed items players can purchase with the event, as well as the rotating LTMs (Limited Time Modes) players can expect.
LOW TEMP TACTICS, HIGH ELEVATION
Having a battle-filled background, Snowmando has brought in wintery items from his piercing past. Take flight in Snowmando’s custom X-4 Stormwing planes, and on the ground, disguise yourself as an ordinary snowman with Sneaky Snowmandos, cause cold feet with Chiller Grenades, and gift yourself loot with Snowmando-wrapped Presents!
ROTATING LTMS, SHUFFLING LTMS
Operation Snowdown will feature a rotation of returning LTMs, including the fan-favorite Air Royale, plus the brand new Shockwave LTM, which sees players compete to knock each other into the (extra-strong) Storm as it shrinks down to nothing. Also, Pickaxe Frenzy will arrive in LTM form for the first time.
For those with extra money to burn, the Item Shop will also feature holiday-themed outfits too!
Stay frosty, Fortniters! Enjoy the holiday treats!
