How to get the Fortnite tree skin

The Fortnite tree skin is hidden in plain sight – it’s literally the Christmas tree behind Crackshot in the Winterfest Cabin. Make sure to first inspect the presents on the left side of the cabin before investigating the Christmas tree, then hover your cursor over it and it should glow bright white. Click on it and you’ll have the option to open it by holding E, as with all of the other gifts. You’ll still need a Fortnite present token to open this up, so if you’re eager to get it make sure you’ve got one spare.

Last thing to bear in mind, a lot of players are reporting that the Christmas tree skin in Fortnite is bugged and they aren’t receiving the reward upon opening the tree. We’re not sure exactly what’s causing this, so stay tuned to official channels to see if an answer comes.
