FortniteMares 2022 is finally here and has introduced several new items, game modes, and cosmetics for players to celebrate the Halloween season. From eliminating zombies across the map to escaping them on a Witch’s Broom Mythic, players have long been waiting for what is expected to be a thrilling experience.
Now that the update is finally here, it has also brought several cosmetic collaborations ranging from Rick and Morty’s Summer and Mr. Meeseeks to Evil Dead’s Ash Williams. Additionally, several other survey skins and concept royale skins could also make their way onto the island.
However, for players who are unable to purchase outfits in the item shop due to various reasons, Fortnite has something for everyone in their bag of treats. Players can now get their hands on free outfits and cosmetics if they complete a certain amount of quests during FortniteMares 2022. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Fortnite announces free Chrome Punk skin to be rewarded to players during FortniteMares 2022
Epic Games recently added new Chrome Punk quests to the game files with the latest Halloween update. As stated, players will have three different tiers of quests to complete before they get their hands on a Chromeseed Backbling, Graveyard Rave loading screen, and Chrome Punk outfit for free.
Here are all the descriptions of the quests and their rewards:
- Earn 10 Account Levels: Chromeseed Backbling
- Earn 25 Account Levels: Graveyard Rave Loading Screen
- Earn 50 Accounts Levels: Chrome Punk Skin
This means players will need to increase their account levels by completing weekly, daily, milestones, and special FortniteMares 2022 quests from the Quest tab. However, players should bear in mind that the account level is different from their XP level, which can be checked by navigating to the Career tab in the game menu.
As of now, there is no end date for the quests, but Epic may make an announcement at a later date. Additionally, Chrome Punk has also been added as an NPC on the map and can be seen roaming the island. The official description for them in the Characters tab reads as follows:
“Hacking and carving a path to victory. Chrome Punk is a renowned pioneer in the underground ‘gourd-core’ music scene. His attitude is unmatched except by his brother, Punk, with whom he had a falling out.”
A few years ago, a similar skin called Punk was released in the item shop. It had a similar structure to that of Chrome Punk and was deemed by the community as above average at best. However, his pickaxe from the set Bash Burner was considered pay-to-win due to its faster swing rate, and was later nerfed by Epic.
FortniteMares 2022 begins today and players will be able to experience horror on the island until November 1 at 2 am ET, when it ends.
