Here’s the biggest changes introduced in Fortnitemares 2022:
How to get the Howler Claws in Fortnite
From now until November 1 Howler Claws will be added into Fortnite.
If you head over to the Reality Tree and stand on the Alteration Altar and then perform the ritual emote, you will get the new weapon, Howler Claws.
These have the ability Wolfscent which allows you to see nearby enemies through walls.
Another ability Slash deal a large amount of melee damage that can be comboed for a higher damage output.
Finally, Air Slash allows you to double jump and damages enemies around you when you land.
What’s Fortnite’s new Zero Build Horde Rush mode?
Horde Rush mode is a popular mode that has previously appeared in Fortnitemares.
Cube Monsters will attack you and your squad in waves, and you attempt to survive as long as possible to get a high score and take down the boss.
This year, it’s being combined with Fortnite’s Zero Build mode, meaning you have to take on the same challenge without the safety that building offers.
A good knowledge of your map is crucial for survival in this new mode.
Candy and Pumpkin Launcher return to Fortnite
Candies are small items that give you small buffs when you eat them such as +10 health or shields, or temporary thermal vision.
The Pumpkin Launcher is a destructive weapon, which is a reskin of the Rocket Launcher but with pumpkins.
Both of these are back in Fortnite for the spooky season.
How to get cosmetic rewards for Fortnitemares quests
If you complete the Fortnitemares quests this year, you can earn up to three different chrome items depending on how many you finish.
There are 28 quests in total, with two being released every day until November 1.
Here are the chrome items available on completing requests:
- Everything’s End glider – complete five quests.
- Chrome Cage back bling – complete 13 quests.
- Unmaker pickaxe – complete 25 quests.
Sinister Glare and Undying Sorrow outfits in Fortnite
In March, artists were challenged to come up with spooky outfit designs to be added into the game.
These designs are now here, and fans are eager to get their hands on them.
First is Sinister Glare, which is a creature with a hand holding a glowing eyeball for a head.
Undying Sorrow is a devilish creature with three eyes, horns, decaying skin, and one bone holding it all together.
These outfits are available now from the in-game shop.
