What we know about the Fortnitemares event so far
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.
