Fortnite Operation Snowdown: How to stoke a campfire and easiest location

Locating two campfires to stoke in Fortnite may seem tricky since they’re not marked on the map, but it’s much easier than it sounds.

Fortnite’s Christmas-themed Operation Snowdown event will still be running into the new year, with it scheduled to end on January 5.

That means you have plenty of time to complete the campfire challenge, where you must locate and stoke a campfire twice.

Before you take off in search of one, you will first need 60 pieces of wood, as stoking a campfire requires 30 pieces.

Wood is super easy to find, since it can be taken not just from chests but from trees, boxes, and wood pallets.

The most efficient way of clearing the challenge is to find two campfires that are quite close to each other.

While the campfires aren’t marked on the map, they’re dotted all over the place, so finding one shouldn’t be too difficult.

But perhaps the best location is in the northwest by Coral Castle, specifically on the little island west of the castle.

Stoking the campfire is the easy bit. Simply get close to it and a button prompt will appear.

While you can stoke the same campfire twice to clear the challenge, you need to wait for the fire to go out, so it’s probably best to move on and look for another one.

If you’re unlucky enough to get killed or the match ends before you reach the second campfire, don’t worry. You don’t need to stoke two campfires in a single match or life to clear the challenge.

Once it’s done, your reward is a free Confetti wrap cosmetic for your weapons.

Fortnite is available for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
