Are you enjoying all your Fortnite matches being taken over by Cube monster zombies? It’s certainly spiced things up, that’s for sure. The arrival of Fortnitemares also brings with it a new set of challenges which will go on for about the next week or so. The first two ses are live, but the rest of the sets, including a tough week 4, have leaked online already.
What’s in store for the entire event? Check out the future challenges below, which will unlock over the course of the next week:
- Destroy Cube Fiends (0/150)
- Deal damage with Shotguns or SMGs to Cube Monsters (0/5,000)
- Eliminate opponents at Corrupted Areas (0/3)
- Destroy a Ghost Decoration in different Named Locations (0/7)
I think Cube Fiends are the small ones, and you should rack up a lot of those kills in no time. Killing opponents in corrupted areas is already a battle pass challenge, so you can double up there. And I figured there’d a challenge to destroy Halloween decorations eventually, and here we are.
- Destroy Cube Brutes (0/25)
- Deal damage with Explosive Weapons to Cube Monsters (0/2,000)
- Search chests in Corrupted Areas (0/7)
- Stage 1: Visit Wailing Woods (0/5)
Here you’ll have to upgrade to killing heavier Cube monsters and blowing them up with explosives if you can. Chests in corrupted areas will mean beating a lot of people to them also trying to complete these challenges. Then we have a five stage “visit places” assignment.
- Destroy Elite Cube Monsters (0/10)
- Damage Cube Fragments (0/2,500)
- Deal damage to Cube Monsters in a single match (0/1,000)
- Visit different Corrupted Areas in a single match (0/4)
- Destroy Cube Fragments (0/3)
- Complete Fortnitemares challenges (0/14)
Wow, things get serious in the final stage here. You’ll have to take down the toughest Cube monsters of them all, deal a bunch of monster damage in a single match and visit 4 of the 7 corrupted areas in one match, which is no joke. It kind of sucks that these challenges are not retroactive, given that the harder they get, the less time you’ll have to complete them. I guess the reward is pretty good, a neat glider that pairs with the Deadfire skin (which costs $20), but yeah, this is going to be a good amount of work. And I think that’s fine! Epic has previously nerfed challenges that players deemed too hard, but I really don’t think they should keep doing that, and these certainly feel manageable at the very least.
So, get your Cube Monster hunting loadout ready to go and start cleansing the land. It’s going to be a long night.
