How to Get the Guff Gringle Skin For Free in Fortnite on PC & Console?
To get the Guff Gringle skin for free in Fortnite on PC, just log in to Fortnite and then select it in the Item Shop.
If you play on console you will need to join GeForce Now on a PC. This streams the PC version of Fortnite directly in your browser, so you don’t need to download anything.
You can get a free version of GeForce Now that only lets you play for 1-hour sessions. However, this will be more than long enough to get into Fortnite and nab the free Guff Gringle skin.
To get the Guff Gringle skin via GeForce Now, follow these instructions:
- Go to GeForce Now.
- Click the “Log In” option in the upper right corner and join up to the free tier.
- Create an account.
- Go to Fortnite in GeForce Now (you can do this in browser without downloading anything) and press Play.
- You’ll be prompted to connect your Epic Games account.
- Sign into your Epic Games account.
- Go back to Fortnite in GeForce Now and select Play again.
- It’ll load up Fortnite.
- Be aware that the free tier of GeForce Now has waiting queues, and it can take from 15 minutes up to an hour or more to launch the game. It can be so busy at times that it will outright tell you there are no available spots and to try later.
- Once in Fortnite, head to the Item Shop and scroll down to the Special Offers & Bundles section.
- Select Guff Gringle and purchase it (you won’t be charged).
The Guff Gringle skin is also available for free until January 3rd, 2023, like all of the other free Winterfest rewards.

To get the free rewards during Fortnite Winterfest 2022, players must go to the Winterfest Cabin, which is accessible from the main lobby.

How to Get Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 Winterfest 2022 Rewards For Free On Consoles
To get the free Fortnite Winterfest 2022 rewards for free on Xbox, PlayStation, and the Nintendo Switch, you have to go to the Winterfest Cabin found in the main lobby.
After you’ve gone to the Winterfest Cabin, just select which present you want to open and hold X (PlayStation) or A (Xbox/Nintendo Switch).
Fortunately, console players just have to follow the same process as PC players and don’t need to perform any complex workarounds to nab these freebies.
How to Open Presents in Fortnite Winterfest 2022
Presents are opened by holding down E (PC), X (PlayStation), or A (Xbox/Nintendo Switch). They can be opened in any order except for one in the left pile that says “Save for Last”.
However, if you can’t open any, or the Hold option is greyed out, don’t panic. The event hasn’t started yet, despite the Cabin being available.
Simply wait until the event starts and it says Day 1 at the top left corner, and you’ll be able to open any of the available presents.
If you’re trying to open them after December 13th, 2022, when the event starts, and you still can’t open them, then try checking for updates, validating your files (on PC), or simply restarting Fortnite altogether.
