The developer got a Dual Fiend Hunters which is claimed to be a modern crossbow that can deal damage to Cube Monsters. It can be found in Chests or on the ground. “Speaking of Halloween tricks, the new Dual Fiend Hunters are on the Island now!” the developer mentioned.
“Also, throughout October, you can visit the Battle Bus and Fortnite cosplay characters at Universal CityWalk, adjacent to Universal Studios Hollywood. Different characters will appear throughout the month, with special appearances by new Fortnitemares characters the day they go live in the Item Shop! Stop by and take a picture,” the developer further stated.
This year’s Fortnitemares will wrap up with the third Short Nite film festival. Shortnitemares are said to feature animated shorts but unlike previous Short Nites, it will be based on the ghoulish and sinister created by Quantum Builds. In addition, there will be quests during ‘Cubic chaos’ where one can take part to get eerie rewards.
While the developer didn’t explicitly reveal entire details on Fortnitemares 2021, it has cited that there will be other festivities running throughout this month.
