Fortnitemares 2018 is finally here and has brought a new set of challenges to complete in order to unlock new items.

After being teased for four days leading up to the event’s start on October 24, Fortnitemares has completely changed Fortnite with the inclusion of Cube Monsters and new weapons.

As everyone gets acclimated to the new style of play, a new set of challenges are available as part of the special, Halloween-themed event.

The challenges are as follows:

  • Destroy Cube Monsters
  • Deal damage with Assault Rifles or Pistols to Cube Monsters
  • Visit a Corrupted Area in Different Matches
  • Dance in front of Different Gargoyles

Destroy Cube Monsters

Added to the game with the V6.2 update, Cube Monstera are AI enemies that appear at Large Cube Fragments located near the Corrupted Areas around the map. They will also appear around Small Cube Fragments that randomly spawn on the map during any given match.

Killing 200 of these might sound like a tall task, but they don’t have much health and will die pretty easily. Simply drop near the Corrupted Areas on the map if you want to complete this one quickly.

Deal damage with Assault Rifles or Pistols to Cube Monsters

While you’re trying to complete the first challenge of defeating Cube Monsters, you should make sure that you have an Assault Rifle so that you can kill two birds with one stone. Each Cube Monster will slowly lumber towards you, making it easy to quickly mow them all down and rack up the damage. 

Visit a Corrupted Area in Different Matches

Speaking of those Corrupted Areas, you’ll need to land at all seven of these to complete this challenge. Since you’ve got to go there for the previous two challenges anyways, completing this one shouldn’t take too long. Be on the lookout for human opponents, though, since these will certainly be hot drops as players fight to finish up their challenges as quickly as possible.

You can find the locations of all seven Corrupted Areas below: 

Dance in front of Different Gargoyles

In addition to the other changes that came with the V6.2 update, gargoyles have been added to various parts of the map. You’ll need to dance in front of five of them in order to complete this challenge.

You can find our in-depth guide for this challenge, which includes all known gargoyle locations, here.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
