Yet another Fortnite patch is here, and update v18.20 will bring Halloween festivities to the island. With this latest update, several new NPCs and their Punchcards are being added to the game. Along with this, there are also new cosmetics and a few minor map changes.

The highlight of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 update v18.20 are the new NPCs and cosmetics. Players are excited to get more challenges and items from the new NPCs as it will help them level up faster.

Apart from this, the Item Shop update is going to make them happy as the spooky season is around the corner.

Fortnite update v18.20 for Chapter 2 Season 8 has also added two new NPCs with their respective Punchcards. Along with this, there are a host of skins for Fortnitemares, new customizable skins, and outfit styles for pre-existing skins.

For free-to-play players, the most crucial addition with Fortnite update v18.20 is of the two new NPCs. The first new one is Dire, the level 100 battle pass skin from Chapter 1 Season 6. The scary wolf seems fit to join the NPC with Halloween just a few days away.

Along with Dire, Ragsy, the post-apocalyptic version of the Cuddle Team Leader, is also arriving in Fortnite as an NPC. The skin returns from Chapter 1 Season X to join the spooky festivities.

On top of these new Halloween skins, there are new outfit styles for previous skins like Fishsticks, Skull Trooper, and even a slight tweak to the Shadow Midas skin.

On top of these new additions, there is a Graveyard Drift quest pack along with the Driftwalker Fortnitemares skin that is going to reward players handsomely.
