Here is everything we know so far about the Fortnitemares 2020 Halloween event including the return of Midas to Fortnite.
We had a Fortnite Halloween themed event in the last two years for the Battle Royale game mode called Fortnitemares. Each year, players have the opportunity to complete Fortnitemares challenges giving players XP time and a variety of cosmetics including sprays and loading screens.
Epic added an umbrella reward for players who defeated Storm King featured in the new Halloween-themed LTM. There were only six challenges for Battle Royale last year, but there are a number of additional challenges that players can complete for creatively giving players XP and different styles for skateboard back bling.
We’ll be getting another Fortnitemares event this year and as always, data miners have unveiled some features and items that could be introduced when the event starts. Here is everything we know about Fortnitemares 2020 through leaks and past events.
Cosmetic Challenges and Free Rewards
No surprises here. We get Fortnite challenges to complete with Fortnitemares as well as some free cosmetics and XP. Epic doesn’t release too many challenges in Battle Royale for the Halloween-themed event, so expect 5 or 6 challenges in a major cosmetic reward and some spray and XP.
We should see a number of creative challenges again that will provide more XP for players to earn along with some back bling styles. I still hope we see Epic working harder on BR challenges this year.
Again, no surprise with this one. Always adds decorations for major holidays including Christmas and Halloween. Expect to have decorations throughout the Fortnite map, some of which may be part of the Fortnitemares challenges.
Broom Action Item
Data-miners have stated that we can see the brooms added to the game as a mobility item for Fortnitemares 2020. There is a new box added to the files in the v14.30 update called ” Broom Box “as well as a consumed in the code name” Wbroom “.
If there is a broom mobility item added to the game, we may find it available in some LTMs instead of the normal game modes. We’ll probably find out more when the next major Fortnite update is released. However, there is also the opportunity to add it to all game modes but it can work in a similar way to Silver Surfer’s fictional Surfboard capability.
Fortnite Halloween Skins & Cosmetics
We’ve already seen the re-release of Epic Games themed Halloween-themed skins and cosmetics as well as the ultimate Halloween-themed reckoning pack. We’ll probably see a lot of new Halloween Fortnite skins added as well as releases Fortnite Goth Legends Pack.
Not only was the broom item leaked in the last update, but data miners also leaked some new consumption that would be added to the game when the Fortnitemares event launched. Pepper Ming, Hot Drop, Candy Corn, Jelly Bean, and Thermal Taffy are the names of all the new Halloween-themed consumers added to the files.
There is also a candy bucket that players will likely find around the map that will likely work just like fruit boxes. If somehow you do not see fruit boxes during 4, once opened, they give players a random fruit. We’ll probably see candy buckets giving a random exhaust to players.
Most of these exhausted ones are likely to provide the skills we already have in the game. Candy Corn is likely to work like corn, thermal taffy can work like a Thermal fish, and pepper ming should work like the peppers currently in the game.
Midas Fortnite Return at Ghost Henchmen
If the release is correct, we will see Midas return to Fortnite in the event of Fortnitemares 2020. Original Hypex leak that will have Midas NPC added to the map with Ghost Henchmen.
With the Fortnite v14.30 update, Midas’ golden seat returns to The Authority further suggesting that he return to the Fortnite map. Let’s not forget, he will also be part of the upcoming bundle of The Last Judgment released next month.
When will Fortnitemares 2020 Start?
There is no information about the start date of Fortnitemares 2020. However, we are likely to see the event starting on October 27, 28, or on the 29th. As soon as we find out about the event, we will make sure we update you.
