Fortnite Halloween 2021: skins, dates, and Fortnitemares

From October 5th to November 2nd the Fortnitemares event dedicated to Halloween is held in Fortnite. Read on to learn everything about it!

Fortnite's Halloween event - Fortnitemares - is back and it's bigger than ever. This year's edition is full of surprises and promises an amazing and fun experience. 

What is the Fortnitemares 2021 date?

The event takes place from October 5th to November 2nd.

What does the Halloween event 2021 look like?

The 2021 edition of Fortnitemares will host the Wrath of The Cube Queen. The Cube Queen is here with her strongest warriors, The Caretakers. Those giant Cubes - "tall, foreboding, shadowy apparitions" - are forming The Convergence in the center of the Island. In addition, players can find some old items such as Witch Brooms and the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher but also a brand new weapon: the Sideways Scythe. However, the fun doesn't end here - in fact, there are three quests to complete this Halloween season. Here's the list:

  • Monster Hunter questline: One-time Fortnite performer Ariana Grande is back as "Spacefarer Ariana Grande"! If you complete her Monster Hunter Questline, you will unlock the Dark Style of the All-Weather Extractor Pickaxe. Active Fortnite Crew subscribers will also get to put their hands on the Brite Style!
  • The Oracle Speaks questline: Complete Dark Jonesy's questline by helping him get the Spirit Vessel - the artifact may restore his visions and you will unlock the Cube Cruiser Glider!
  • General Fortnitemares Quests: Of course, there are the general quests. By completing them, you will unlock the Raven's Curse Spray, the Midnight Showdown Loading Screen, and Wrathful Breakout Contrail

Shortnitemares is the third Short Nite film festival. It will take place in a creator-made movie theater where you will be able to see "ghoulish and sinister" animated shorts.
