The Fortnitemares event introduced the Trap the Storm mission type. Taking place in an entirely new location named Hexsylvania, players were tasked with trapping The Storm in a storm trap to prevent it from seeking out a nefarious character named Vlad. Storm traps were spawned in and around the Hexsylvania Castle, changing the focus of the mission away from building brand new defenses and towards fortifying existing structures.
