Fortnite Ice Boxes Map Locations: Where to search ice boxes in Fortnite?

Fortnite Winterfest challenges continue today with yet another not-so-difficult-but-worth-explaining-challenge on offer.

It's Day 13 of the Winterfest, unlucky for some, but for others it means yet an all-new weapon will be unvaulted and a brand new LTM to play as well.

From a quick check online it looks like today’s unvaulted weapon is the Heavy Sniper Rifle, which will be available for 24 hours alongside the solid gold LTM.

If this is your first Winterfest rodeo then you'll find a full explanation of how this works – for all PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Mobile players at the bottom of the page.

Otherwise, we suggest you read on for everything you need to know about today's latest challenge.

For Winterfest Day 13 players will have this new challenge unlocked at 2pm GMT: Search Ice Boxes

It's relatively easy, but for those who don't know what to do or where to go, read on for a quick guide and everything you'll need to know!

Fortnite Search Ice Boxes Map Locations

The Fortnite Winterfest challenge for Monday, 30 December isn't all that hard.

However, you need to be quick!

Whilst Ice Boxes can be found relatively easily, they work exactly like Fortnite chests, which mean players will loot them as soon as they see them to get the contents inside.

This means they can only be used once per match, so you might find if you're too late to an Ice Boxes that the front hatch is open, which means someone beat you to it.

You'll find ice boxes in a variety of locations, but if you visit one of the seven places mentioned below, you'll have the most success.

Of those seven locations, you need to open and search two ice boxes. But don't worry you can spread your progress across multiple games. So no need to stress about getting to two locations in one game.

  • A5 – Go west of Holly Hedges, you'll find one outside the gas station
  • B3 – At Sweaty Sands, you'll find one on the roof of Hotel 23

  • B6 – Inside the office at Logjam Woodworks

  • D5 – Go to the biggest lodge at Weeping Woods, it's inside
  • E2 – Head south of Craggy Cliffs, you'll find one outside the gas station
  • G7 – Next to Shiver Inn, which is southwest of Retail Row
  • H4 – Lots can be found at Dirty Docks, Inside Mr Polar's Artisanal Ice

And if you need some extra hand-holding, you'll also want to check out the below map, courtesy of ProGameGuides, to illustrate where they are across the whole map.

Just in the event, you've forgotten where these named locations actually are on the Chapter 2 map.


After you've completed the 'Search Ice Boxes' challenge you'll unlock your reward.

For Day 13 players will unlock the 'Polar Renegade Spray', perfect timing because it seems as though the Polar Patroller skin could be dropping into the item shop later tonight.

For now you can see what the Polar Renegade Spray looks like on the image below.

And don't forget, the next Winterfest challenge will unlock at 2pm GMT tomorrow, Tuesday 31st December.

Unlike the unvaulted weapons and LTM's you don't need to complete today's new challenge in the same day. But make sure you do everything before the end of the event to claim the rewards.

They won't be available again after Winterfest 2019 ends.

Fortnite Winterfest – What is it?

Welcome to Winterfest. Throughout the holiday season, we’re getting festive with free gifts, new Challenges, and more.


Drop in the in-game lobby to see a brand new snowflake tab. By clicking on it, you’ll be taken to the Winterfest Lodge.

Every day for 14 days, you may unwrap a new Present at the Lodge. Inside are two Outfits, two Gliders, two Pickaxes, two Wraps, one Emote, and more — all exclusive to this years’ Winterfest!

You might be wondering: how do I get all the things? Just prepare your shaking and guessing skills — the Presents are free for everyone to open. The Lodge is full of Presents, and each day you can return and unwrap a new one. If you miss any days, simply come back before January 7 to open them up.


Don’t forget the stocking stuffers! Hanging on the fireplace of the Winterfest Lodge is a stocking full of more rewards to unlock. Check your stocking each day to get a new Challenge that you can complete for rewards and XP. And as with the Presents, don’t worry if you miss a day — visit the stocking before January 7 and grab all the goodies waiting for you.


If you’re feeling nostalgic this holiday season, no need to sit and reminisce: we’re unvaulting lots of weapons during Winterfest! Also, each day from December 18 to January 2, you’ll be greeted with some of your favorite LTMs, including Wick’s Bounty, Arsenal, and more. Plus, Zone Wars will be running throughout the holidays!
