Another spooky season is coming, and that means Fortnitemares 2022 is back in Fortnite too. Whether you’ve been to previous Fortnitemares or are experiencing Fortnite’s annual Halloween event for the first time, you can be sure that there are plenty of holiday-themed skins, challenges, items, and more. This year’s event sees the return of the Cube Monsters first seen last fall, albeit now with a non-build twist. Read on for everything you need to know about Fortnitemares 2022.
When is Fortnitemares 2022?
Fortnitemares began on Tuesday, October 18 and will conclude on Tuesday, November 1.
New POI, Candy, and Pumpkin Launchers
Shifty Shafts was recently transformed into the haunted house-like Grim Gables, while two other points of interest have more recently been chromed to become Chromejam Lumberyard and Shiny Sound. Candy has also made a comeback, which is usually available outside of houses for you to find and eat, granting buffs to health, movement speed, and more. Meanwhile, you can find powerful Pumpkin Launchers all over the map that use rockets and can be fired at your opponents to deal heavy damage.
Fortnitemares 2022 has introduced the new Howling Claws item, which can be obtained by performing the Ritual emote at altars scattered around the map. These give him the ability to track down his opponents and then attack them with a 4-hit combo melee attack that can devastate their health bar. If you like to play as a predator, you will have a good time adding this one to your arsenal in every match.
It wouldn’t be an event without also having some themed quests to complete, and Fortnitemares 2022 is unleashing a lot of stuff over the next couple of weeks. Two new quests will be available each day of the event for a total of 14 days. For completing the missions, you can earn the limited-time cosmetics listed below.
- Doomsday Glider: Complete 5 missions.
- Chrome Cage Back Bling: Complete 13 missions
- Unmaker Pickaxe: Complete 25 missions.
The popular Horde Rush co-op game mode has returned for Fortnitemares 2022, bringing plenty of multiplayer mayhem to your Halloween experience as you and a few friends take down packs of zombies and face off against a terrifying final boss. Additionally, the mode will last even longer than Fortnitemares, allowing you to play until Tuesday, November 15.
Halloween-themed skins are widespread during Fortnitemares 2022, so expect to see the return of some from previous years along with a selection of all-new options, like this new crossover with the Evil Dead.
