Fortnitemares 2020 is only a few days old, but not everyone is a fan of the new game mode. For those who haven’t gotten a chance to play, core Fortnite modes allow players to respawn as Shadows after they die.
Shadows are very difficult to deal with and can be nearly impossible to face in end-game situations. Almost all games come down to a couple of players versus a dozen or more Shadows. The only counters to the Shadows are Iron Man’s Gauntlets and a sky base.
The event, by itself, is a unique one. Unfortunately, casual Fortnite players don’t have a choice when it comes to playing with or without Shadow zombies.
On the other side of the coin, Epic have released challenges for players to complete during the Fortnitemares 2020 update. The rewards are worthwhile, so you’ll want to finish these challenges before the event ends.
Both groups – those who want to finish all of the challenges and those who are waiting for “normal” Fortnite to return would benefit from knowing when the event ends. According to several data miners, Fortnitemares 2020 is set to end on November 2.
This will make Fortnitemares 2020 the longest Halloween event in Fortnite history – lasting 12 days. We have almost two weeks to finish your challenges and earn the exclusive rewards.
Those who dislike the new Fortnite format can play Arena mode in the meantime. Zombies, RPGs, and other controversial items aren’t in Arena, although this is a much more competitive way to play the game.
In short: Fortnitemares will end on November 2. Enjoy it while you can.
