Here's how you can complete the “Collect an Item Inside a Present Thrown By Sgt Winter” quest for this year's Fortnite Winterfest challenges.
You need to find Sgt Winter in the Winterburg POI and pick up a gift thrown at you to complete the challenge.

Fortnite added over a dozen event quests for Winterfest 2023 and fans are having a blast completing them for tons of XP. One of the quests involves collecting an item inside a present thrown by Sgt Winter in Fortnite and players cannot complete it. This is because Sgt Winter was unavailable in-game until today and you should now be able to complete the quest. Before we get into how to complete the quest, feel free to check out our guide on how to find Sgt Winter.

You must head to the Winterburg point of interest (POI) and look around to find Sgt Winter. Once you locate him, just wait for him to throw a gift at you and pick it up to complete the challenge.

Locating him is the tricky part as a lot of players have been trying to find him for days and he was nowhere to be found. He has finally spawned in the Winterburg area instead of his usual hangout spot from last year so you should have no trouble completing the quest.

How to Complete Ship It! Express Challenges Fast

Ship It! Express is a fast-paced limited-time mode that launched as part of Fortnite's Winterfest 2023 event. It's all about delivering presents to other players and racking up points. Here's the scoop:

  • Players are divided into two teams: Red Team and Green Team.

  • Each team has a central Gift Depot and several scattered Delivery Points.

  • Your objective is to grab presents from your team's Gift Depot and deliver them to the opposing team's Delivery Points.

  • Delivering a present scores points for your team.

Here's how you can start winning more often:

  • Throwing items is key! You can't directly shoot or melee other players. Instead, you must use throwable items like Snowballs, Presents, and even Toilet Plungers to knock them out of the way and clear a path for your deliveries.

  • Increased loot spawns and frequent Supply Drops ensure you'll never be short of ammo (er, throwing items).

  • Beware the Blizzard! Periodic blizzards roll across the map, reducing visibility and making deliveries extra challenging.

Completing Ship It! Express challenges unlocks Winterfest-themed rewards, including the Merry Marauder Wrap and the Gift Wrap Harvesting Tool.
