Epic Games have once again prepared a spooky Fortnite Chapter 2. Judging by the confirmed challenges and missions, it looks like one of the most exciting times for players to jump into the game. 

The game’s developers pushed out yet another of their weekly updates on October 29, once again with no patch notes to boot, but that hasn’t stopped data miners from digging deeper into the game’s files to uncover exciting details for fans to take a look at. 

Aside from the return of the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher and introduction of a brand new Harpoon Gun, Fortnite players are also going to have to tackle a very big opponent during the event in order to check off all of the tasks – the Storm King is back.

This year’s Halloween inspired event starts on the same day as the content update, October 29, bringing a whole host of different things to the game. 

Starting with the challenges, there are seven in total to complete. The full list of the Fortnitemares challenges and rewards can be found below. If you think you have seen them before, don’t worry, leaker Lucas7yoshi revealed them shortly after the patch went live. That might be why.

Now, not every player might have heard of some locations included in that challenge list, but don’t worry, we’ve tracked down haunted forest, ghost town and spooky farm in our Fortnitemares location guide. That should make things a whole lot simpler. 

We have also put together a guide on how to defeat the Storm King in Fortnite, which is an objective connected to two different Halloween challenges – dealing damage to its weak spots and ultimately defeating it. Those tips and weak spot will allow you breeze through the limited time mode with ease. 

Grab yourself a new Fortnitemares umbrella for defeating the Storm King.

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
