If you've been playing Fortnite lately, you might have seen people running around in a Christmas tree skin. However, you will not be able to find this skin in the Item Shop or the Battle Pass. The method of getting the Lieutenant Evergreen skin in Fortnite is a bit different than other skins. It's part of a limited-time event, so you'll need to act fast if you want to get your hands on the party outfit. There are also bug reports from some people too, so it might take a few tries to get it. Fortunately, the process is not difficult at all.
How to Get Lieutenant Evergreen Skin in Fortnite
For the holidays, Epic hosted an event within Fortnite called Winterfest. During the promotional period, you can get a variety of free gifts just for playing the game, and the Lieutenant Evergreen Christmas Tree skin happens to be one of them. To get the skin, you will need to visit the Winterfest Presents Lodge. To access it, go to the snowflake tab from the lobby.
Once you're in the cozy cabin, you'll see a bunch of scattered presents. Our target is hidden among the gifts, but it's not exactly wrapped like the others. If you move your cursor to the right, past all the presents, you'll find that you can select the Christmas tree in the background. The prompt says "Just a tree", but make no mistake. If you open the tree like you would any other gift, you'll be rewarded with the Lt. Evergreen skin and the Re-Gifter bling back, both part of the Piney Fresh set.
As we mentioned earlier, the redemption process is bugging some people. If you open the tree and nothing happens, try restarting the game and trying again. The items should appear on your second attempt, but if they don't, just keep trying. Of course, if you're looking for even more festive Fortnite cosmetics, you can check out our guide on how to get the rare Merry Mint pickaxe, which will only be available for a limited time. There is also the Purple Remedy style, but you can save it after the holidays.
