Winterfest 2023 is officially underway, and fans can now get the Snowglobe Smasher Pickaxe for free in Fortnite.
Winterfest is the annual holiday celebration in Epic Games' Battle Royale. The update brought new weapons and items to the game, like Snowball Launchers and Snowy Floppers, to give gameplay a winter-themed flare. Players can also earn daily rewards simply by logging on, like the Winterfest Bushranger skin, throughout the entire event.
As always, there are also special quests in the limited-time event that offer even more prizes, including the Snowglobe Smasher Pickaxe. Here's how to get the new item for free in Fortnite.
