Fortnitemares 2020 is expected any day now, and fans are wondering what the new update will bring them. Last season, Epic scrapped Husks from the Save the World version of the game in favor of jump-scare zombies hiding in cars and barrels of hay.
Most Fortnite players appeared to prefer this version of zombie in Fortnite. Sure, they could make you jump out of your chair, but the husks would routinely overwhelm players and cause them to lose games. The 2019 Fortnitemares zombies had little affect on actual gameplay.
In fact, we even created a Twitter poll, asking our followers which Fortnite zombies they preferred. Out of the over 2,000 people who responded, almost 70% of them said that they’d prefer last year’s jump-scare zombies to the husks from previous Fortnite events.
This Fortnitemare season, would you rather:— Fortnite News (@FortniteINTEL) October 1, 2020
Well, according to Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e_, Epic have made alterations to the husk spawners in Fortnite. The change is only in the audio – but any change to an existing Fortnitemares asset would suggest that it’s coming back.
Unfortunately for the many players who dislike these zombies, this leak seems to be a clear sign that they’ll be returning for Fortnitemares 2020. Hopefully, the cubes that spawn these husks drop some tier-one loot as they did during Season X.
In past Fortnitemares seasons, these cubes spawned all over the map. We could see the same happen, again, but we hope that won’t be the case. Retail Row was home to the husks in Season X, so we could see the POI be a hub for zombie activity, yet again.

There are also rumors that The Authority will be home to Midas and “Ghostly Ghost Henchmen,” which could also signify that husks will be active in this area. If this isn’t the case and zombies spawn all over the place, then we can only hope that their spawn rates look more like that of the Gorgers rather than the Marauders from Chapter 2 Season 3.
