A second teaser in as many days has been released by Epic Games for the upcoming, and very mysterious ‘Fortnitemares’ event in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Previously an in-game event in the Save the World mode back in Halloween 2017, it looks like Fortnitemares is making its way to Battle Royale this year.

However, with only two cryptic teasers released, fans are still unsure as to what exactly it will entail.

Teaser one, released on October 20, showed an image of an as yet unreleased skin, wearing what appeared to be Calamity’s hat, along with a poem about your duo being either a friend or a ‘ghoul’ in disguise.

The tease of a new skin makes it almost certain that new cosmetic items will be a part of whatever form Fortnitemares is to take in the battle royale mode, and the second teaser may be yet another.

A poem is included along with an image of a rune trapped in chains, which some fans reckon could be a new pickaxe, or perhaps back bling.

Tombstones quake,
Keep your finger steady.
The circle will close,
Better be ready.

So the first teaser very specifically mentioned duos, while this time we get a mention of the storm, so perhaps, if it is a new game mode(s), then there will be a new storm effect too.

Whatever it is, fans can expect it soon, as October is ramping up towards Halloween fast. We can probably expect a third teaser tomorrow too, which will hopefully start to put the pieces together.

This second teaser also obviously relates to the floating islands and mysterious runes on the map, which was possibly building up to Fortnitemares this whole time.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
