Winterfest is well underway in Fortnite, but how do you get Icy Feet? Oh, and once you have them, how do you travel with Icy Feet?
Fortnite's Winterfest is here for 2021, celebrating Christmas, winter, and more. It's awesome, as it always is, and we can't wait to dive even further into the many challenges and experiences that have graced our beloved video game screens. You see, Winterfest is not just here to provide us with an opportunity to grind XP, but an opportunity to enjoy some pretty crazy Fortnite-based experiences. Thus, enter: the Icy Feet Challenge.
Now, this bad-boy is absolutely insane, and a really cool addition to Fortnite's set of daily challenges. I mean, Chapter 3 has already been fantastic, do they really need to keep one-upping themselves with more hilariously fun events like this? Seriously, this is getting wild! First the new Chapter Launches, then we hear about the new skins that are coming with it, and now we're getting this? Let's stop blabbering and just jump straight to the bloody point.
What is the Icy Feet Challenge in Fortnite?
The Icy Feet Challenge tasks players with travelling 200 meters while having icy feet. Now, this might sound easy, but it's actually not! You see, it's not particularly easy to move when you've got giant bloody ice blocks on your feet. In fact, it's ridiculously hard to move with giant ice blocks for feet, and should absolutely be avoided at all costs... unless you're trying to complete this particular challenge!
How do you Get Icy Feet in Fortnite?
To get Icy Feet, you need to throw a Snowball Grenade at your feet, or destroy a snowman. First you need to find a chest that will give you the snowball grenade, which does require a bit of luck because without it, the challenge is much harder. That being said, you can also get Icy Feet by hacking into a Snowman. This is probably the easier method, as it doesn't require you searching random chests until you get a Snowball Grenade.
You can find a group of snowmen in Greasy Grove, and you need to hack at them until they explode. This explosion will give you icy feet, and each time you kill a snowman you will be able to travel about fifty meters with its icy feet. When using the Snowball Grenade, you need to find a few and then throw them at your feet for more-or-less the same effect.
How to Travel With Icy Feet in Fortnite
We would recommend using a combination of the Snowball or Chiller Grenades, and the Snowmen, to travel with Icy Feet. You need to travel a whopping distance of 200m with Icy Feet, so it's a pretty heavy request to do it all based on destroying Snowmen, or collecting enough grenades. You want to get it so that you can move the entire distance before your Icy Feet run out.

What you want to do is have a couple of Snowball or Chiller Grenades in your pocket, ready to be thrown at your feet. Then you want to smash a Snowman and begin moving with Icy Feet as quickly as you can. As it begins to run out, throw a grenade at your feet to rejuvenate the Icy Feet, then continue this progress until you have moved the required 200m to complete this challenge.
It might seem like a lot of work, but you almost certainly want to get this challenge completed quickly so that you can collect the delicious reward! So, what do you think of the Icy Feet Challenge in Fortnite? We think that it's actually a great little challenge, and a lot of fun to complete, especially if you know what you're doing and have stocked up on grenades! Anyway, we're off to play more Fortnite, enjoy yourselves...
