The new season of Fortnite has introduced weapon wraps that give your loadout a personalized spin, and fans of the game have already gone to work creating some incredible concepts.

Fortnite Season 7 released on December 6, bringing along tons of new features like planes, new points of interests, and item wraps for fans to use and explore in creative ways.

Reddit user ‘Aculeus’ shared some of their concepts for weapons that thematically fit into Fortnite with previously released character skins that would complete the look for a lot of players.

Epic GamesThe only thing missing here is a Fate weapon wrap to complete the look.

Their post included a skin for each of the Hand Cannon, Pump Shotgun, and SCAR weapon variants that added some more design to the base weapon rather than just a generic wrap.

From top to bottom, the post highlights an Omega edition for the popular assault rifle that reflects the dark brooding elements of the skin with an orange vein that stretches from the stock to the magazine and barrel of the gun.

There’s a Fate Hand Cannon equipped with a glowing ominous orb on its rear sight. And an Ice King edition for the Pump Shotgun that has crowned at the base of the barrel, just in time for the holiday fixtures in the game.

Now that we have gun skins, I designed something I’d love to see! from r/FortNiteBR

Since its launch in September of 2017, Fortnite Battle Royale has taken the unique and artistic creativity of its fans to incorporate into the game in some way.

Now that skin wraps have made its way onto the live servers, it’s sure to be yet another avenue for fans to be involved in the game’s evolution.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.
