YouTuber Nicholas ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony is one of the most popular Fortnite creators around, with over 2 million subscribers and hundreds of thousands of social media followers.

In a new video posted by NickEh30, he decided to look back at a less popular, slightly more awkward time when Fortnite was just starting out.

The reaction video shows off the early stages of Fortnite back in October of 2017, with a smaller map, only one dance and no Battle Pass. The pre-match load screen was close to a minute and a half long and skydiving took significantly longer.

NickEh30 also noticed a change in himself compared to today, as October 2017 NickEh30 was unbelievably excited about the game.

In a nice Easter Egg for fans, the old video mentions how one_shot_gurl also plays the game, long before the two would pair up on streams together.

“There’s a lot of cool streamers who play this game, like one_shot_gurl, I don’t know if you guys have heard of her. She has a really positive attitude and I like watching her.”

NickEh30 couldn’t help but laugh as he watched himself talk about one_shot_gurl back in October, before commenting on what would happen.

“So this is before me and [one_shot_gurl] started playing… It’s crazy how [I] mentioned her and lo and behold, [I] started playing with her.”

The extended skydive time allowed him to reminissce, but it finally ended and NickEh30 was able to show off even more changes with the game.

Traps could only be placed on floors, the old build system was slower and more cumbersome, and Nick himself wasn’t the snapshot he is now.

The highlight of the video is towards the end however, as the eliminations pile up and the possibility of a win becomes evident. Memes played a bigger role in his celebrations back then.

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.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
