Fortnitemares 2018 - Free challenges, Deadfire outfit

Epic has released a blog post outlining the Fortnitemares 2018 event which starts today, October 24. We'll be seeing a new set of challenges every few days with special rewards for those who complete them, here's everything you need to know:

Cube Monsters

"During Fortnitemares, you’ll face off against Cube Monsters in a whole  new way of playing Battle Royale. There are new weapons to fight back  against these creepy creatures, like the Six Shooter and Fiend Hunter  Crossbow. Take out the Cube Fiends and Fragments to pick up loot, and  survive against enemy players."

Deadfire outfit

"Make sure you’re lookin’ good while the darkness descends and pick up  the new Deadfire Outfit. This new type of reactive outfit features  in-match progression, giving you a way to show off your skills in style.  The outfit will progress through 2 styles based on the damage you deal  enemies (players and AI) and how long you last in a match.  Deadfire  also comes with the Shackled Stone Back Bling and you can pick up his  matching Dark Shard pickaxe in the store, both of these are reactive cosmetics."


"Fortnitemares has its own set of free challenges. Complete each challenge set to unlock a new in-game cosmetic.

These are the first set of challenges:

  • Destroy Cube Monsters
  • Deal damage with Assault Rifles or Pistols to Cube Monsters
  • Visit a Corrupted Area in different matches
  • Dance at different Gargoyles

Come back every few days for a new set of challenges and  new rewards! If you complete the final set of challenges, you’ll be  rewarded with the Dark Engine glider!"
