Epic Games added a new snowman item to Fortnite with its version 7.20 update, enabling players to wear a snow suit as a fun, wintery alternative to the bush camouflage. Though the bush wasn’t terribly popular with players, the snowman and its waddle is amusing and has been used by streamers to create some hilarious situations. Thus arrives Epic’s new Sneaky Snowman challenge.
In a tweet today, Epic announced that it is offering NVIDIA GeForce Fortnite Bundle prizes to winners who submit clips of the best moment sneaking around in a snowman. The bundle includes a GTX 1060 6GB graphics card, as well as an exclusive Fortnite skin, glider, pickax, and 2,000 V-bucks.
The sweepstakes is open to players ages 16 and over who are located in North America, Mexico, Spain, Brazil, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, Korea, Poland, Russia, and Turkey. Each player can submit only one clip or screenshot showing them sneaking as a snowman.
Submissions are open until January 28 at 11:59PM EST, and must be sent as a reply to this tweet from the Fortnite Game Twitter account. A total of 38 eligible entries will be selected as winners who will receive the aforementioned bundle, which Epic says is valued at $299 USD.
The snowman is available in Fortnite: Battle Royale as an in-game item that can be found in chests, supply drops, and other places where items are found. The disguise arrived with game update v7.20 and is applicable to the current state of the Fortnite map, which was completely covered with snow over the weekend.
