Along with 16 quests that reward players with XP for being completed, there are also two additional quests that allow new exclusive outfits to be earned. Both the "Snowmando" and "Frost Squad" Outfits will be given to players for completing 9 and 12 different quests. This is similar to 2019's Winterfest event which saw two different Outfits rewarded to players for free.

A brand new limited time mode called "Showdown Shuffle" was introduced along with v15.10. If selected by a player, it will automatically rotate through a select number of the different Operation Snowdown modes. There are currently seven possible LTMs that can be played through the shuffle, however, it's possible that more could be added throughout the winter period. The possible modes are:

- Catch!
- Air Royale
- Tilted Taxis
- Shockwave
- Score Royale
- Rally Royale
- Pickaxe Frenzy
