The recent v18.21 patch brought the official launch of Fortnitemares 2021 and that means loads of new challenges for gamers to complete. Among the popular challenges, players are tasked with collecting Candy, one of the new Fortnitemares items.

Players will need to collect 25 Candy in total, so get ready for some Fortnite trick-or-treating. The best place to find Candy is Pleasant Park, as it seems to be most plentiful there.

Candy will be found in Halloween style baskets, some hidden and some not, all throughout the Pleasant Park location. When you find a basket, hit it a few times with your pickaxe until it breaks and the Candy inside spills out, then pick them up.

If you're at less than 100 health you can eat the Candy to regen, and seeing you can store many at once, it's not bad for quick boosts. You won't need to eat any Candy to complete this challenge though.

Simply collect 25 and the challenge will be complete. This will likely take finding between four and five baskets to cross off, so drop for Pleasant Park right away before other players can collect it all.

Once you collect 25 Candy you will receive 2,800 XP for the battle pass in addition to Fortnitemares rewards, dependent on how many other quests you've completed.
