Fortnite: how to throw holiday presents for Winterfest

While there's no surefire way to finish this one, it does help to know how it works.

In this guide, we'll explain everything you'll need to know about this quest to hopefully make it as easy as possible for you.

How to find presents

The hardest part of this quest is actually getting your hands on presents. There isn't a guaranteed way to find one while playing, making this quest super tedious to complete. Holiday presents spawn as floor loot and from chests with a very low drop rate. Players have reported playing for up to an hour before finding one on the map, unfortunately.

So, your best bet is to run around and loot as much as possible, while visiting as many locations as you can. You can actually pick up presents from eliminated enemies, so keep your eyes peeled as you battle foes across the map. They might have a present on their body.

Keep in mind, for this quest, you need to throw three presents at named locations, but they don't all need to be thrown in the same match.

How to throw presents at different named locations

Once you finally get your hands on a present, you need to throw it at a named location. Named locations are main points of interest (POI) across the map such as Faulty Splits and Anvil Square. Hopefully, you're already near a named location when you find a present, and if not, you'll need to make the journey to a main POI as safely as possible. That means utilizing a vehicle and as much cover as you can so you don't get eliminated before actually getting to throw the gift. There's nothing worse than finally finding a present, only to get eliminated before being able to throw it at a named location.

When even a stick can serve as a weapon, you'll never be at a loss for some way to beat down your enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Granted, a random stick isn't going to do you much good, even when you combine it with something using the new Fuse power. Link is most deadly with real swords, and Hyrule is packed with them, including many from his past adventures. Naturally, the Master Sword is out there waiting to be found, but you can also reunite Link with the very first sword he used against Ganon all those years ago. We all know it's dangerous to go alone, so here's how to get the Sword of the Hero in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to get Autobuild and all schema locations in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

At first, you might be disappointed to see that Link has lost all his core abilities from Breath of the Wild when you first begin The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. While those moves were great, what replaces them is even better, and you will likely forget all about those old ones in a matter of hours. Ultrahand in particular is essentially limitless in what you can do with it. Building contraptions, most often vehicles, is easy and intuitive. Still, sometimes you know what you want to build and would rather skip the process of, you know, building it. For that, the game offers you Autobuild.

However, like so many things in Tears of the Kingdom, you have to seek it out in order to utilize it, and the game is perfectly fine with you never stumbling upon it. To save you time building those common contraptions, here's everything you need to know about Autobuild, plus where to find all the Schema Stones in Tears of the Kingdom.
