Howling claws, higher senses

While you take a break from dancing to DJ Lyka’s mix, hop on one of the Reality Tree Alteration Altars — where you will be given the option to perform the ritual gesture. (Far from the Tree of Reality? Fear not, altars can be found elsewhere too!) Once the ritual is complete, you will be awarded the howling claws. Equip this supernatural item to gain dog abilities:

With Howling Claws equipped, how to activate the Wolfscent skill, which lasts for a limited time before going on a cooldown. The Wolfscent ability gives you tracking vision, repeatedly marking enemies in a close radius. If there are no enemies in the radius, the Wolfscent ability will immediately go on cooldown.

Equipping the howling claws, of course, gives you… claws. But these claws are more than razor-sharp nails. With the cutting abilityshow no restraint and perform a four combo melee attack.

air slash ability

Your claws make you capable of air bar too. With the air slash abilityperforms a double jump that damages opponents upon landing.

No structures, lots of monsters

Horde Rush is back! But this time, the Cube Monsters have a trick up their sleeve: this is zero construction Horde Onslaught. With your teammates, can you take down hordes of monsters, collect score multipliers, earn combos, survive in different locations AND defeat the final boss without the help of the build? Find out if Zero Build Horde Rush is available on the Discover screen until long after Fortnitemares ends (November 15, when downtime begins for v22.40).

That’s right, Zero Build Horde Rush will stick around beyond November 1st for a limited time. After Fortnitemares is over, look out for Horde Rush Quests that you can complete for a special reward…

Take on your Fortnitemares

Complete Fortnitemares Quests to earn XP…plus some nice surprises.

By completing 13, you will unlock the Chrome Cage Back Bling. And by completing 25, you will unlock the Unmaker Pickaxe. Missions will be available to complete until Fortnitemares ends on November 1 at 2am ET.
