Epic has launched a major update for Fortnite that includes Fortnitemares, a new Halloween-themed event. This features Save the World and Battle Royale components, and in the latter mode, there is a new set of challenges to complete with separate rewards from the standard weekly challenges. Among the first batch is one asking you to dance with gargoyles; below, you’ll find a guide on where to go and the locations for all the gargoyles you’ll need. [Update: Fortnitemares ends on November 4 with a special event.]
This challenge asks you to dance in front of five different gargoyles. The trouble is, these are spread all over the Island, so you may end up wasting time running into dead-ends. Luckily, we’ve managed to find them and can give you their exact locations to save you the time and effort. You thankfully don’t need to dance in front of all five in a single match, so you can leisurely take care of these across multiple games. Just don’t be surprised if players are camping on these spots, looking for easy kills.
Below you’ll find a map with the exact locations of the Gargoyles as well as a list of where the gargoyles are. You can also watch the video above to see us complete the challenge.
Fortnitemare Day 1 Gargoyle Locations
- Viking Village: Head inside the large building atop the hill.
- North of Flush Factory on top of the mountain
- West of Lazy Links in the mine that’s shaped like an umbrella
- Haunted Hills inside the Gothic Castle, in the main hall
- Between Wailing Woods and Risky Reels on the hill
- Tomato Temple: In the lower courtyard
- Retail Row: In the store with the Battle Bus above it
Unlike normal weekly challenges, completing these Fortnitemares challenges won’t unlock Battle Stars for you to level your Battle Pass up. Instead you’ll get experience points and specific rewards such as an emoticon, spray, contrail, and glider. Additionally, Epic is rolling out new challenges every two days, and to get that glider you’ll need to complete all of them.
This first set of challenge sis available now, and you can get the details on all of them in our Fortnitemares challenges roundup. There are four challenges in total in this set; three of them are fairly straightforward, with the gargoyle one above being the outlier.
Fortnitemare also introduced a cool new skin type that reacts to the way you play the game. If you haven’t already checked it out, you can see the Outlander Outfit and find out what sets it apart from other skins. In addition to this skin, Epic has also introduced the Shackled Stone Back Bling and the Dark Shard pickaxe. Both of these items are also called “reactive cosmetics.” The Deadfire skin is available for 2,000 V-Bucks, while the Dark Shard harvesting tool costs 1,200 V-Bucks.
Fortnitemare was introduced as part of the Fortnite update 6.20 update, which also includes a new weapon: the Six Shooter. Epic is also testing the ability to re-deploy gliders after you’ve landed, so you can do that in the Battle Royale’s various game modes now too.
