How to get the 2020 Glider in Fortnite

- Select the stocking and unlock the Frozen Fireworks challenge.

The 2020 Glider is a new cosmetic item recently added to Fortnite. What’s nice about this particular Glider is that you won’t need to use up your V-Bucks to purchase it. Instead, you can earn the 2020 Glider for free in Fortnite, provided you complete a few specific tasks. So, what are these tasks and how do you complete them?
First, you’ll need to select the snowflake icon from the Fortnite menu and pay a visit to the Winterfest Lodge. Inside the Winterfest Lodge, you’re able to interact with an array of festive items. While you’re inside the Winterfest Lodge, make sure you select the stocking hanging by the fireplace and open it up to unlock a few key Winterfest Challenges.
Note that you can also open presents in the Winterfest Lodge that include other cool Gliders like the Treefall and Millenium Falcon. After opening the stocking in the Winterfest Lodge, you’ll want to start with the Frozen Fireworks challenge which tasks you with setting off fireworks at one of three different beach locations (Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs, Dirty Docks).
The fireworks are already set up at these locations, meaning all you need to do is interact with them in order to set them off. You only need to do this once so you can land at Sweaty Sands as seen in the image above, set off a frozen firework, and continue about your match as usual. By completing the Frozen Fireworks challenge, you’ll earn the 2020 Glider in Fortnite.
The Frozen Fireworks challenge and 2020 Glider are only available until January 7, meaning you’ll want to load up Fortnite as soon as you possibly can. As long as you visit the Winterfest Lodge and complete the Frozen Fireworks challenge, you should have no trouble getting the 2020 Glider in Fortnite!
