Of course, Epic Games tries to keep all the details about the event secret so as not to spoil the surprise, but a few interesting details have already been shared by leakers.


In a Sept. 20 tweet, Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that a new Halloween boss codenamed "Freaky" is on the way. He can summon creatures and will drop an unknown mythical weapon and gourd launcher when defeated. He also drops 2 ammo stacks, 2 consumable stacks, and 6 firefly jars.

HYPEX has also leaked that they are working on a new type of ammunition called "Phantom Ammo". He himself does not know what this ammunition is for, but he can imagine that it belongs to a new Halloween weapon.
