Fortnitemares arrives in Fortnite 22.20 update

Halloween is almost here, and Epic are celebrating by bringing back the fan-favorite Fortnitemares event with Fortnite Season 4’s 22.20 update.

Fortnite 22.20 brings Diagonal Movement setting

Many Fortnite players prefer a mouse and keyboard for its many keybinds and precision aim, and the new Diagonal Movement setting allows mouse and keyboard players to, you guessed it, move diagonally.

Before the 22.20 update, mouse and keyboard players could only move in one direction but with the new “Use Custom Diagonals” setting, players can press two movement keys to move in a diagonal direction. The angle can also be adjusted through the Settings tab.

Fortnite 22.20 update patch notes


  • With the exception of map changes, the Fortnitemares changes are not included in competitive playlists.


  • Reboot Cards no longer sink if the player was eliminated in water.
  • Players are again able to see the progress of their EvoChrome weapon evolutions in competitive playlists.
  • Moving the right stick on controller no longer unintentionally navigates menus.
  • Fixed an issue on mobile causing water to appear as if it was floating above the ground.

Fortnitemares 2022 schedule

Fortnitemares went live on Tuesday, October 18 and Epic Games confirmed that the Halloween-themed event will continue until October 31 at 11 PM PT and November 1 at 2 AM ET / 6 AM GMT.

This means that players have two weeks worth of spooky fun to have after hopping into Fortnite following the 22.20 update. There’s a plethora of brand-new content to explore in the Fortnitemares 2022 event.

Fortnitemares 2022 Zero Build Horde Rush LTM

The Horde Rush LTM has arrived in Fortnite’s Zero Build mode during Fortnitemares 2022. This game mode first appeared back in 2019 and required players to work together while battling Cube Monsters.

It was prominently featured back in Fortnitemares 2021, so it makes sense for the developers to bring it back for the Zero Build mode. It’s been confirmed that Horde Rush will remain in the game after November 1 for a limited time.

Fortnitemares 2022 Glare and Sorrow skins

It’s been confirmed that Epic Games will bring the fan-designed Glare and Sorrow skins with Fortnitemares after creators Dreowings and Kitsunekitsu won the Concept Royale contest.

Glare has a hand with a single eye in the palm instead of a head, and Sorrow looks like an undead demon.

The update has also unvaulted items like the Candy and the Pumpkin Launcher that you can use to complete the new Fortnitemares Quests. Completing these will let you unlock a new Pickaxe, Glider, and Back Bling.
