Fortnitemares: Midas' Revenge is a Battle Royale and Save the World Event that was introduced in Patch 14.40. This is the fourth Fortnitemares event in Battle Royale, including the return of old weapons, as well as new items and challenges. Upon entering Fortnite during Fortnitemares, players are rewarded with an Emoticon called Bobo's Watching.
- In the Chapter 2 Season 4 Battle Royale Map, the main map change is the addition of The Ruins, where Henchmen roam carrying Fortnitemares weapons, as well as the boss called Shadow Midas. This POI is at the center of the map, replacing The Authority.
- A Hey Boo Megastore, witch huts and Halloween decorations have been added, as well as a dark fog that occasionally covers the map.
- In the updated Fortnitemares mode, players have a second chance after elimination. They are transformed into shadows, and have multiple abilities while working with other shadows for the chance of a Nitemare Royale. However this allows for a second chance, it removes the ability to reboot players, as Reboot Vans were disabled. The Shadows abilities are:
- Slash, a ghastly combo swipe attack (20-30 damage) (Was 25-35 before nerfed)
- Dash, phase through obstacles
- Scream, mark nearby survivors for shadows in range
- Shadow Jump, a high, floaty leap into the air
- Consume, use items to regain health (5 health per item, heals more if it is a higher rarity)
- Invisibility, become nearly invisible upon standing still
- Possess, enter vehicles and drive them around, kicks a survivor out of the vehicle if they're in it
Challenges have been added based off of new Battle Royale additions to Fortnitemares. Three challenges were added on the start of Fortnitemares, and more are added every few days. Some challenges are recommended four players to complete them, meaning a squad can all complete the challenge as long as one of the squad members completes the challenge. The challenges are:
- Become a Shadow 3 times
- Travel 100 meters on a Witch Broom
- Eat 25 candies
- Deal 100 damage with a Possessed Vehicle
- Detect 10 players as a Shadow
- Eliminate Shadow Midas
- Eliminate 3 Shadows as a Player
- Visit 3 different Witch Shacks
- Consume legendary loot as a Shadow
