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.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
