This isn't the first time Rick and Morty have appeared in Fortnite, and we're sure it won't be the last. Here is how to get the new Pickle Rick item, and what the new event entails.

How to do I get the Fortnite Pickle Rick back bling?
Don't worry fellow players, the spooky fun isn't over quite yet despite the date changing. Fortnite's Halloween mode, Zero Build Horde Rush, is still ongoing until November 15, and has some new cosmetic items for you to get.
The post-Fortnitemares Horde Rush Quests are here, and each comes with its own rewards, including XP. Complete eight of them and you'll get the coveted Pickle Rick Back Bling.
These new quests will end at 6 AM GMT on November 15, when the game's downtime to usher in the latest update begins. You can find the Zero Build Horde Rush quests in the quests menu. The required objectives are as follows:
- Collect 20 score multipiers
- Deal 6,000 melee damage to Cube Monster spawners
- Earn 2,000,000 combined team points
- Earn a Team Score of at least 350,000 in a single match
- Earn a 50 KO streak
- Eliminate 500 Cube Monsters
- Eliminate 100 ranged Cube Monsters with Sideways weapns
- Get 70 headshots on Cube Monsters in a single match
- Open 45 chests in Horde Rush
In case you didn't try them over Halloween, the Zero Build Horde Rushes are a different scenario where you and your teammates must come together to defeat Cube Monsters, which attack in waves. Your combos and score multipliers will help massively here, as you attempt to protect different locations in the game. There's also a boss to beat once the hordes have halted. But as the name suggests, there is no building allowed here!
In order to get the brand spanking new Pickle Rick Back Bling, all you need to do is complete the criteria of eight quests, and it will unlock. Fortnite has already addressed an issue where the item wasn't showing up for some players, so you'll be able to get your portable Rick immediately after completing the quests.
What other Rick and Morty items can I get in Fortnite?
Rick's debut came way back in Season 7 of Fortnite, as an Epic Skin in the battle pass. His skin is Rick C-137, and had some variations. Since then, more collaborations between the game and the show have come in the form of a Mecha Morty bundle with a skin, back bling, emote and pickaxe, and more recently, Summer and Mr. Meeseeks skins.
