Epic Games has finally released the long-awaited Fortnite update. The most important thing that comes with the update is the new Halloween event.
The event is something millions of players from all around the world look forward to. Epic has always done a great job with Halloween events, and some of the skins that have been released during previous events have become iconic. This is why there is so much hype around this year's event.
This article will reveal Fortnite v22.20 patch notes and cover all the most important things that have come with it. The Halloween event lasts until Tuesday, November 1, at 2 am Eastern Time.
New Rick and Morty and Evil Dead skins arrive with Fortnite update
The v22.20 update has brought two new collaborations to Fortnite Battle Royale. Another Rick and Morty collab is out as Mr. Meeseeks and Summer have been added as skins.
Epic Games has also collaborated with Evil Dead, and at least one skin from this collaboration will be released during the new Halloween event. Considering that this is a horror series, releasing a skin from it during Fortnitemares 2022 makes perfect sense.
Fortnite players will be able to earn three free cosmetic items during the event as well as purchase a few from the Item Shop. All of these items have a Chrome theme and are a perfect addition to the current season of the game.
As players can see in the tweet above, these items look incredible and can be obtained by completing exclusive quests. These quests will only be available throughout the Halloween event, and it is very unlikely that they will ever return to the game again.
At the moment, it is unknown what quests will be released. However, Epic Games usually releases easy Halloween quests, so completing them should not be a problem.
Fortnite gameplay changes
The Pumpkin Launcher is an iconic Fortnitemares weapon that has been unvaulted with the latest Fortnite update. Players will be able to use it for the next two weeks.
Considering that Chapter 3 does not have an RPG, this will be the first time that players get to use the iconic weapon since the previous Fortnitemares event. The weapon was first seen in Fortnitemares 2017, which took place all the way back in October 2017.
When it comes to loot changes, Epic Games has vaulted the Grapple Glove. This item was in the game for a limited time, but it may return after the event ends. Motorboats have also been vaulted.
Epic Games has added the Howler Claws with the new Fortnite update as well. This is a new Mythic item that gives players tracking vision and the ability to deal damage.
Finally, there is a new boss located at Grim Gables. The boss drops a Mythic weapon.
