By The Fortnite Team
Attention Commanders!

Hope you are ready for a Status Report more loaded than a holiday stocking!

To start, we would like to drop an early heads up that the Winterfest Ventures Season will wrap up on January 24 2021, giving you plenty of time to collect the rewards this Ventures has to offer.

Now a note about XP in STW: As mentioned previously, XP earnings in STW will be adjusted with every new Season. So far in this Season, XP earnings in STW has not quite hit the mark we desire. Because of this, Commanders will now see a noticeable increase in XP awarded for completing missions!

Now let’s dive in, Homebase Status Report - Initiate!
