Fortnite's Halloween event - Fortnitemares - is back and is bigger than ever this year. From the 18th of October into November, prepare for the Fortnitemares event dedicated to Halloween in Fortnite.
What is the Fortnitemares 2022 date?
The Halloween event in Fortnite starts at 01:00 PT, 04:00 ET, and 09:00 BST on October 18th and will run until November 1st.
What does the Halloween event in 2022 look like?
The biggest news of Fortnitemares 2022 is that players will now be able to transform into werewolves. To unlock new werewolf-y abilities, players should visit Reality Tree and find Alteration Altars (you'll also find DJ Lyka hanging out there). Perform the Ritual Emote that'll offer you Howler Claws supernatural abilities.
As part of the Halloween event in Fortnitemare, there will be a limited-time mode called Zero Build Horde Rush, a cooperative mode where players have to eliminate AI enemies. It is also announced that there will be two new spooky skins – Undying Sorrow and Sinister Glare. They are available in the item shop for 1,200 V-bucks, or as a bundle for 1,600.
What Fortnitemares skins are there?
Epic Games added the Sinister Glare and Undying Sorrow outfits this year in the Item Shop. They were inspired by the ideas of the winners of March's Concept Royale: @Dreowings and @kitsunexkitsu.
Also, the biggest news is that you can transform into a werewolf in Fortnitemares 2022! Activate the Wolfscent Ability that gives you tracking vision and some sort of 6th sense. With the Slash Ability, you can perform a four-combo melee attack, and with the Air Slash Ability, you can double-jump and damage opponents upon landing.
What other items are there?
This year you can visit Grim Gables and use unvaulted items like Candy and the Pumpkin Launcher. Two Fortnitemares Quests will become available daily too. For completing 5, you'll unlock Everything's End Glider, and for 13 – the Chrome Cage Back Bling. And for 25 – the Unmaker Pickaxe.
Is the Fortnitemares Horde Rush back?
The limited-time Zero Build Horde Rush is available! Complete all the quests and win various items: fight hordes of monsters, earn combos, collect score multipliers, survive at different locations, and take down the Final Boss.
