Fortnite’s chapter 4, season 1, started off on December 4, 2022. The new chapter in Fortnite’s battle royal offers players ways to go around in the game, such as dirt bikes, shockwave hammers, and a whole new arsenal of weapons.
During the holiday season, Fortnite hosts its annual Winterfest event in which players come across a Santa Claus NPC known as Sgt. Winter. This NPC travels in his holiday truck on roads and gives out free stuff as gifts as the game progresses. Fortnite had originally hosted a similar event dubbed 14 days of Fortnite in 2018.
Thereafter the event came to be known as Winterfest 2019. Fortnite didn’t host the event in 2020, but the Winterfest 2021 was revealed as per the annual schedule.
Who is Fortnite SGT. Winter?
Sgt Winter is a friendly Santa Claus-type NPC from Winterfest 2022 who drives around the island in his Holiday Big Rig sporting a military outfit.
During the game, Sgt. Winter stays still on the Big Rig at all times, casually on to the players lucky enough to spot him. When he’s nearby, his reindeer will honk, signaling the player to come close; when Sgt. Winter throws a present near them.
The Big Rig speeds away as he waves goodbye. Usually harmless, Sgt. Winter only attacks when players impose damage on him, his reindeer lama, or his Big Rig.
