Epic Games has officially kicked off Fortnite Winterfest 2022. For players of the battle royale, you'll know the Fortnite Winterfest is one of the best-themed events in the game. That's because Winterfest, Fortnite's annual themed Christmas celebration, gives players 14 free presents to open each year. These gifts contain free in-game items such as skins, gliders, back bling, sprays, emotes, and much more. Last year's event gave away a skin that transformed players into Christmas trees, so it'll be interesting to see how this year's presents top that.
In case you're not aware, you can only select one present from the Winterfest Lodge per day. There are a total of 14, so you'll have to log in every day to get your hands on all of the free loot. Don't worry if you've missed a few days; the event runs from now, December 13, until January 3, 20223, at 9 a.m. ET. That means there are more days than presents, so if you miss one, you can make up for it on another. But you'll want to be on time with your daily presents because there are two secret ones you can unlock once you've opened all of them. So don't take any chances by missing a day to open a gift.

More Presents in Fortnite Winterfest
Aside from the presents, you get to open, Fortnite Winterfest also holds other exciting in-game rewards for players. Just for logging on during Winterfest, you'll be able to redeem the Guff Gringle Outfit and the Chill-la-la-Llama Back Bling for free from the item shop. You can also get the Curling Iron Emote by playing with five different friends from your friends list during the event. So, if you really want to stress who's carry's the weight in the squad, make sure to get this emote before it's gone.
Aside from that, the map is now covered in snow and Christmas decorations, and rocket launchers have been transformed into the classic, Snowball Launchers. All of which are adding up for what looks to be another spectacular, Fortnite Winterfest 2022.
