Thanks to Epic Games releasing new content and regularly including new events. The game developers recently celebrated Halloween by bringing back the Fortnitemare event that brings in new cosmetics and items for players to collect by completing a set of challenges.

The event consists of 8 cosmetic items and includes a limited-time mode called Horde Rush. However, Fortnite players are now reporting that the Fortnitemare quest is bugged.

Many say they are unable to complete the quests since they are not tracking properly with them disappearing for some. This is preventing them from collecting the cosmetics from the event.

Fortnitemares quests are still bugged. After playing many games in team rumble and not appearing, these quests have returned. However, I have completed 2/3 and it still shows these, and neither would complete after attempting them in a game
