Fortnitemares 2022 is likely to give players up to 3 free rewards

The Fortnitemares 2022 event is right around the corner! Epic Games announced its release on Tuesday, October 18, and many gamers are looking forward to it. Halloween is the most popular seasonal event in Fortnite and Epic has always done a great job with it.

The October 18 update will bring a lot of new content to the game. Most importantly, many new Halloween-themed skins will be released. Some of the older popular skins will also return to the Item Shop during the event.

Most likely, Fortnitemares 2022 will give players various free rewards. While Epic Games hasn’t confirmed anything, all previous events had free cosmetic items, so we can expect the same in 2022.

Earlier this year, Epic Games released a teaser image for the Fortnitemares 2022 event. It featured a couple of existing characters sitting by the campfire, but also revealed a new skin that will come with the celebrations.

While the skin from the trailer will likely be released in the Item Shop, Fortnite players will also be able to earn a couple of free rewards during the event.

WHAT TO EXPECT TOMORROW 🔥 – Fortnitemares 2022 with free items, Lootpool and possibly that Ch2S4 mode – Pumpkin Shockwave Launcher I leaked or any other new items – POI, Halloween boss and Mythic changes – Diagonal movement on PC – Launch of Zero Build Horde Rush / information and MORE ‼️ https://t.co/utgZFLMvX6

HYPEX, the most popular Fortnite Battle Royale leaker, expects Epic Games to release free cosmetic items with the upcoming event. This will almost certainly happen, as previous iterations also had free rewards.

At the moment, it is impossible to say what cosmetic rewards will come with the Fortnitemares 2022 event. However, a new update will be released on Tuesday. Before the servers go back up, we’ll get a sneak peek at all the new content that’s coming with it.

Judging from previous Halloween events in Fortnite Battle Royale, we can expect Fortnitemares 2022 to bring up to three free rewards. These will most likely be earned by completing special challenges and won’t be available in-game after the event ends.


More changes are coming with the next Fortnite update

Version 22.20 will be the second major update in Chapter 3 Season 4. In addition to the Fortnitemares 2022 event, it will bring a host of new content, including map and gameplay changes.

The Grapple Glove will be skipped with the update, but will most likely be replaced by the Witch Broom, a Mythic item that is awesome for mobility. Also, we’re hoping that Epic Games will bring out the Pumpkin Launcher during the event, as it’s an iconic Halloween item.

The next Fortnite Battle Royale update will also bring some changes to the game’s map. While most of these will be Halloween-themed, there’s also a chance that Epic will expand Chrome’s reach across the island.

When it comes to gameplay changes, PC players will get a diagonal move that gives them more control over their characters. According to leakers, a new boss is also coming to the island, dropping a new Mythic weapon, various consumables, and ammo for the Pumpkin Launcher.
