This event has seen the reprisal of planes in the game, along with the fan-favorite Air Royale LTM. In addition to this, the event has introduced the brand new Shockwave LTM, which “sees players compete to knock each other into the (extra-strong) Storm as it shrinks down to nothing.”

Visit 5 of Snowmando’s Outposts and loot crates as a part of Fortnite Operation Snowmando quests

One of Snowmando’s quests will have you set out in search of 5 of Snowmando’s outposts. Another one will have you looting crates at each of these outposts. The first one is near Weeping Woods, in the direction of the shore. You can easily recognize these outposts on the mini-map as really small red buildings. What’s really convenient is that these outposts have a lot of planes nearby, so it makes navigation easier.

Another outpost location is just on the north-east of Slurpy Swamp. The 3rd one is located just on the South of the Steamy Stacks. The 4th one is located right on the South-east of Catty Corner. Snowmando’s 5th outpost is really easy to locate, it’s right on the left of Pleasant Park.

Now, here is a little something to up the ante. Completing 9 Operation Snowdown quests unlocks the Snowmando Outfit. Completing 12 lets you unlock the winter-inspired Frost Squad Outfit. Each of Snowmando’s individual quests has pretty great rewards too! The official announcement says,

“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.”

The drill is quite simple- get to the outpost, loot a crate, and move on to the next one. However, remember that these outposts tend to be hot-drops. It is best if you gather some preliminary loot at first so that you stay prepared for a fight when push comes to shove.
