Today’s Operation Snowdown Fortnite challenge requires players to deal 100 damage with the Lever Action Rifle. This is a straightforward and easy to complete challenge. It’s best to complete this challenge in Team Rumble as you’ll have a bit more time to loot without getting into a fight in comparison to a normal game mode.
Due to the nature of Team Rumble and the respawning of players, it makes it much easier to deal damage with the Lever Action Rifle. Once the challenge is completed, you’ll unlock the Fish Fest Emoticon.
There’s only one Fortnite Operation Snowdown challenge left that’ll unlock tomorrow at 2 PM GMT (9 AM EST). Players will have until January 5th, 2021 to complete these challenges before they’re gone for good.
