Horde Rush is back as part of Fortnitemares 2023 with a new set of quests.

Horde Rush is a limited time cooperative mode in Fortnite Battle Royale. It made its debut in Season 9 and returned in two previous occasions. Out of all the limited time modes, Horde Rush is very fitting for the Halloween time.

In Horde Rush, players fight in three major encounters. They have 150 seconds to loot a specific area and get ready for the attack. Cube Monster Brutes, Fiends, and Ranged Fiends spawn in the area and it’s the player’s mission to survive for three minutes.

The location for the next horde changes after every encounter. Players receive points based on the number of enemies killed and the type of loot they find. As the game progresses, enemies grow stronger.
