How To Complete Fortnitemares Challenges
Become A Shadow
This is extremely easy to pull off because all you need to do is join a regular BR game (solos, duos or squads) and die.
You'll respawn as a shadow - do this three times and you'll bag 40,000 XP.
This will obviously take three games to complete (although I encountered a bug where it didn't register in one game).
Travel 100 meters on a Witch Broom
This is again a very simple challenge, but you'll need to locate an appropriate location for the brooms.
These are located at Witches Shacks and the easiest location to find one is above Lazy Lake in F5.
Head to the white marker (below) and you'll spot the Witch's shack.
Once there, you'll notice a barrel full of brooms. Simply grab on, activate it and your character will start flying.
Be sure to face to the west so you can fly downhill and make the most of the broom, there is a 20 seconds cooldown once it has been used.
Eat 25 Candy
To complete this challenge, you'll need to head to one of the named locations around the map and collect candy on the doorsteps of houses.
We recommend heading to a location like Salty Springs.
You'll see bags of candy. Simply use your pick axe to break open the bags and candy will drop on the floor.
Pick the Candy up, eat it and you'll be granted shields or potentially other boosts such as thermal vision.
If your teammates eat Candy, it will also count towards your progress.
If you're lucky you can complete this in less than three games.
