Many Fortnite Battle Royale remember the Fortnitemares event from season 1. This is when Epic Games has released in-game skins for the first time. Furthermore, players figured out how to do the rocket riding with the Pumpkin Launcher.

Cube fragments now spawn cube monsters! Large cube fragments can be found around corrupted areas, while small ones will randomly generate throughout the match. Cube monsters all have a chance to drop loot and defeating some of them will grant players a small amount of shield.

Fortnite players will have over a month to enjoy the event as it’s scheduled to end on November 26.
