Here’s what Winterfest Fortnite presents will eventually give you free Fortnite skins.
Epic Games launched the Fortnite Christmas event, Winterfest, for this year on Wednesday. It was expected to go live on the 17th December, but Epic delayed it without communicating the delay with the player base.
For the most part, the Christmas event is similar to the one we had last year, 14 days of Fortnite. There’s a new challenge to complete every day that’ll grant players with a free cosmetic reward, there’s a returning LTM each day, a weapon from the vault is unvaulted for 24 hours, and there’s new Fortnite skins in the item shop.
One of the new additions this year are the Fortnite Christmas presents that can be found in the Winterfest Cabin. The Winterfest Cabin is also a new addition with it’s main two features being the Fortnite Presents and the fireplace that provides players with supercharged XP.
Each time Fortnite presents are opened, you’ll find them inside the cabin. For example, if you unlock the Peppermint Pick Pickaxe, you’ll find it on the right side of the fireplace in the Winterfest cabin.
Now that players have had a chance to figure out which presents provide the cosmetics they’re after, we know the Fortnite presents that’ll provide the different available cosmetics. We’ve already covered a couple of cosmetics items that you can get from particular presents, and you can check them out linked below.

Which Christmas presents to open to give you the free Fortnite Skins?
There’s been a video circling social media that shows a player getting the Fortnite Lieutenant Evergreen skin. The Fortnite skin in encrypted, but has been leaked by dataminers as “Ornament Soldier”.
Rest assured, there’s no way players can get one of the free Fortnite skins from any of the Christmas Winterfest presents yet. What’s interesting though is that Epic stated that there are two free Fortnite skins in the presents, but it appears as though only one present contains a skin.
In the video that shows a player in Japan getting the Lieutenant Evergreen/Ornament Soldier skin, the Christmas tree is gone behind Crackshot and the skin is there instead. Apparently, you need to click the Christmas tree in order to get the skin.
This makes sense due to the fact there appears to be only one present that actually contains a skin, which is going to be the ‘Woolly Mammoth’ skin. It’s possible that on Christmas day, players will be able to click on the Christmas tree and get the Lieutenant Evergreen/Ornament Solider skin, but it’s a theory and nothing is confirmed.
This is the Fortnite present that will contain the skin, but it can only be opened on the last day of the event:
