Fortnitemares Challenges: Corrupted Areas, Cube Brutes, And More
Part 3 of the Fortnitemare event is now available, which means there's new challenges for Fortnite players on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android to complete. For those that may not have been keeping up with the game, Fortnitemares is a Halloween event that sees Kevin the Cube spawning zombie-like creatures called "Cube Monsters." Along with this PvE style twist on gameplay, there's new cosmetics to unlock, with the ultimate goal of getting the Dark Engine Glider for completing all four sets of challenges. [Update: All four sets of challenges are now out, and Fortnitemares will end on November 4 with a one-time-only event.]
Part 3 of the Fortnitemare challenges asks players to destroy 25 Cube Brutes, do 2,000 points of damages to Cube Monsters using Explosive Weapons, search seven chests in the corrupted areas dotted around the island, and visit Wailing Woods. The final challenge in that set is a multi-parter, which the second stages revealing itself once you make your way to Wailing Woods. Each of the challenges will get you 500 XP and, once they're all done, the rare Virulent Flames contrail.

If you've missed previous weeks, you can find out more about them in our Fortnitemare Part 1 and Part 2 breakdowns. The event also includes some fresh cosmetics that can be purchased using V-Bucks from the in-game store. These include the Deadfire skin, which looks different depending on the damage you deal in a match and how long you're able to stay alive. Dark Shard pickaxe is also available in the store.
Fortnite update 6.20 ushered in the Fortnitemares and also introduced the new Six Shooter weapon to the game. The patch also gives players the ability to redeploy Gliders after they've landed on the Island. This is quite a big change to the way the game is played, and so it's currently in testing.
