Following the line of every year in Fortnite, the Halloween event arrived on the game, this Wednesday, with important news. Called Fortnitemares 2020 and with the theme of Mida’s Revenge. The Halloween celebration lasts until November 3rd. It has a new boss Midas of the Shadows and his henchmen, Limited Time Mode (MTL) Nightmares, unpublished challenges, new themed items and exclusive event in Creative mode.
New boss and exclusive MTL
As it became routine in Chapter 2 Season 4, another boss was introduced to the game. Shadow Midas, which has henchmen and can be found at the old Agency. The character also holds a specific weapon that is available for players to collect.
In addition, from now on in casual matches in Solo, Doubles or Squad modes, the player who is eliminated will return to the battle as a Shadow. A kind of zombie, which has special powers. Its main objective is to eliminate human opponents.
Nightmares and Candy Challenges
During the Halloween event, it is possible to complete new challenges in order to unlock exclusive rewards. Like the Midas Shadow Envelope, the Squash Pick, the Caco Back Accessory and other types of cosmetics. There are currently three missions available. Become a Shadow three times. Travel 100 meters on a Witch’s Broom. And eat 25 candies. The first two yield 40,000 experience each, with the last offering the respective Midas Envelope.
Witch’s brooms are one of the significant items added in Fortnitemares 2020. Players can locate barrels similar to fishing rod barrels at various points on the map. Witches’ brooms work in a similar way to the Silver Surfer’s Board, launching players into the sky and then allowing them to glide over the broom. They have a 20 second cooldown. Players can cancel the slide animation and will not suffer any fall damage.
Pumpkin rocket launchers have returned, in addition to the demon hunter’s beast. Some new consumables are available in the game, including peppermint candies, jelly beans, sweet corn and more. Each will mimic similar skills offered with the latest batch of Fortnite Floppers, meaning thermal vision, low gravity and fast movement. It is also worth noting that She-Hulk’s Mythic ability is now available in all public game modes.
