What is included in Fortnite Fortnitemares 2022?

Speaking of content, the Fortnite Fortnitemares 2022 event is jam-packed with new things to do, weapons to use, and quests to complete.

The most significant one is the arrival of Howler Claws. These pick-ups give your Fortnite character the abilities of a werewolf, able to slash at enemies and track their footsteps.

On top of that, a familiar game mode is returning into the playlist rotation for the duration of this event. Seasoned Fortnite players may be familiar with Horde Rush, a round-based survival mode where you take down hordes of enemies before a hulking final boss. It's back, but this time adding the No Build mechanics.

Of course, there's also some returning firepower for you to use. The Candy throwables are back in rotation, as well as the Pumpkin Launcher to land some serious damage.

Best of all though, the new quests added in the Fortnite Fortnitemares 2022 event can net you some exclusive Halloween-themed items. Check out the dedicated Fortnitemares Quests section as soon as it appears, and complete those tasks to bag yourself the Everything's End Glider, Chrome Cage Back Bling, and Unmaker Pickaxe.
