Winterfest Cabin

Winterfest Lodge Inside - Event - Fortnite.png

The Winterfest Cabin, also known as Crackshot’s Cabin, was where you could go to open presents and stockings. There were several other things to do as well. Sitting by the fireplace would allow you to get a small amount of XP every couple second, with that amount growing the longer you stay. Leaving it on overnight would grant you a few levels or so. When opening a present, the said present would than appear inside the cabin. Some notable ones include the Globe from the Snowshaker emote on the ledge of the fireplace, the Millennium Falcon flying around in the air, and Lt. Evergreen standing where the tree was.

There was also a Peely Easter egg when you clicked on the banana next to the jukebox.
