Learn All About the New Fortnite Horde Mode, Coming Thursday

Fortnite’s Survive the Storm event ended last night, and now Epic is gearing up for their newest event to the game, the Horde Bash. Coming to the game on Thursday, the new mode will bring along enraged monsters, a new mode, and new weapons.

Epic has been kind of tight-lipped about the details of the mode, but finally released some details about the mode in a new blog post today. Here’s what the team had to say about what fans can expect:

Challenge The Horde Mode

It all starts in a staging area. You’ll have unlimited time, but limited resources to build a portable horde fort. Once you’ve designed the perfect fort, exit the staging area and party with up to three friends. Your forts will be ready for action when your team hits the ground. As you survive, you’ll receive more resources and more rewards to Challenge The Horde.

Scavenger Event

With the new update comes a new event llama. The Scavenger Llamas holds four new Heroes, nine weapons, two new Defenders. Earn the Scavenger currency by completing quests and playing the new Challenge The Horde mode. The Scavenger weapon set is delicate, but they’re all cheap to craft.

New Heroes

Introducing Scavenger Heroes with new, never-before-seen perks.

  • Raider Soldier – Loves the shotgun and close encounters.
  • Ammo Harvest Outlander – If you need ammo, this is your Hero.
  • Trap Specialist Constructor – Get a damage boost & durability boost.
  • Energy Thief Ninja – Generates and leeches energy from melee combat.

And More! 

Along with modes, weapons, defenders and Heroes … the update includes over 25 new progressions quests with rewards that range from Scavenger tickets to Legendary items!

Get your hands on the Fortnite‘s new Horde Bash when it comes to the game on Thursday, October 5.
