New Fortnite Update Today – v18.21 (October 19, 2021) Patch Notes, Server Downtime, Status, Leaks

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite v18.21 update.

We’ve had a Fortnitemares event in the past two years and Epic Games announced the Fortnitemares 2021 event on October 5th. This year, Fortnitemares includes new Halloween-themed skins, the Dual Fiend Hunters weapon and Shortnitemares.

So far there have been no challenges or rewards for this year’s Halloween event. However, Epic stated that there would be challenges and rewards if data miners leaked the rewards in the v18.20 update that went live last week.

The challenges weren’t in the files, but they’ll likely be added in today’s new Fortnite update v18.21. Epic announced the new update on the Fortnite Status Twitter account and here is everything you need to know.

Planned server downtime and status

The tweet on the Fortnite Status Twitter account stated that the downtime for the update will begin at approximately 4 a.m. ET (9 a.m. BST). Matchmaking will be disabled 30 minutes before the downtime.

Here is the tweet from the account:

Fortnite Update v18.21 patch notes

As mentioned in the tweet above, the next phase of Fortnitemares begins with this new update. Expect the challenges and rewards to be released once the downtime ends. We should also see the Cube City on the map, a new POI in the center of the map that data miners leaked from the files a week ago.

We’ll likely add more content to the game, but we’ll have to wait and see through leaks during downtime and when Epic releases the official patch notes.


Any new weapons and items added to the files will be leaked by data miners in today’s Fortnite update v18.21 along with new cosmetics and the weekly punch cards. If anything else has leaked, we’ll be sure to cover it.
