Epic Games have released a fix for the issue. Players simply need to restart the client and they’ll be able to finish up the challenges! 

It would appear that the ongoing Fortnitemares event in Fortnite Battle Royale has encountered another issue with the release of the Part 4 challenges.

The fourth and final set of challenges for Fortnite’s Halloween event went live on October 30 and looked to be fairly straightforward as most concentrated on dealing damage to Cube Monsters or Cube Fragments.

The final challenge in the list asks players to ‘Complete Fortnitemares challenges’ and the only way to get past it is to have completed every single task from the four sets of challenges that have been released.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll earn the Dark Engine glider, an item of epic rarity that will be exclusive to players that have completed Fortnitemares 2018 and unavailable for purchase.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug affecting the chances of any players getting this final task out of the way quickly, as it doesn’t seem to be counting the completed challenges from Parts 1, 2 or 3 at the moment, as shown by ‘Flabber-gast’ on Reddit.

Unfortunately this is isn’t the first glitch to affect the Fortnitemares challenges – a bug in Part 3 allowed players to rack up a staggering 350 Battle Stars for free, and Epic Games allowed players to keep them because it was their own mistake!

“We have just released a fix for some of the Part 3 Fortnitemares challenges that were granting Battle Stars instead of XP. Please be aware, the UI will still show the reward as Battle Stars until the next update. This was our goof and you will keep everything you’ve already earned,” they explained after releasing a fix.

That particular glitch wasn’t live for very long, so there’s a good chance that this bug that stops you getting your Dark Engine glider will also be fixed nice and quickly!


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
