Fortnite: How To Get The Wooly Warrior skin early

Fortnite's first-ever Winterfest is in full swing now, the holiday-themed event is a way for Epic Games to give back to the players after an epic year of Fortnite.

The event is essentially giving out free rewards to players for just logging into Fortnite, as every day until January 7 players are able to unwrap a present in the Winterfest lodge.

Included in these presents are pickaxes, gliders, music packs, and even two free skins! Epic Games has never given out free skins before let alone two of them so it is amazing to see this.

One of the skins has already been made available to players. As all you needed to do was to unwrap the Christmas tree to the right of the cabin.

But, now we have a way to get the second free skin, a bit earlier than Epic Games has seemed to intend.

Right away, players assumed this was one of the free skins, because why else would we save this one for last? However, there has been a sneaky way to unwrap this present early!
