Fortnite Fortnitemares challenge guide: Where to find and eat candy

Candy is the highlight of any Halloween event, and luckily, Fortnite has you covered with all the sweets you could hope for — if you know where to look. As part of its Fortnitemares event, you’re required to find and eat 25 pieces of candy in order to complete one of the seasonal challenges. It’s simple enough, but the game doesn’t tell you where to find candy, so you might need a little help.

In this guide, we’ll show you where the best candy spots are, how to eat them, and what they do. Here’s where to find and eat candy in Fortnite.

Best place for candy

Candy can be found in many places around the map, but the easiest way to find some is to check residential homes. These can be found in places like Retail Row, Doom’s Domain, Holly Hedges — anywhere with houses. Of course, the places with more houses like Doom’s Domain will be busier, so it might be best to stick to lower-traffic areas like Retail Row. When you arrive, you should see houses with spooky Halloween decorations, indicating that there’s candy nearby.

At the front door, you should see a container of candy, so smash it with your axe and pick up the drops. You’ll likely get a few pieces here, so head inside and look for more in the kitchen. Then, move onto another house and repeat the process. After a few houses, you should have around 25. Keep in mind, if anyone in your squad eats candy, you get credit for it, so we recommend attempting this challenge in a team mode like Squads or Team Rumble. For maximum effectiveness, have your team spread out to multiple houses, so you all get credit for the challenge.

As for the candy itself, consuming it will sometimes grant you temporary abilities. For example, the Thermal Taffy will activate thermal mode, making your screen turn to black and white. Other pieces of candy will simply serve as a way to regenerate health or shields, so experiment with what you pick up! The video above shows the full process of us collecting and eating candy. Keep in mind, you don’t need to eat 25 pieces of candy in a single match — as with most challenges, this one is cumulative, meaning you can earn it across numerous matches. Once you’ve eaten 25 pieces (either solo or with the help of your team), you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and earn the Midas’ Shadow weapon wrap. Make sure to equip it to show everyone what a sweet tooth you have!

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
