Fortnite is back in costume with Fortnitemares 2022, and that means candy can be found all over the map like every year. You’ll want to find Fortnite candies for a number of reasons – mostly just to enjoy their speed, jumping, and more buffs – but also some Fortnitemares quests require you to find candies too sometimes. This year, one such quest will ask you to use the Zero Point Pretzel Effect on yourself three times. Here’s how to do it easily and where to find candy in general.
Fortnite Zero Point Pretzel Effect
Zero Point Pretzels act like Zero Point Fish, giving you a few seconds of a dash technique, making you harder to hit when under fire and also adding a bit of speed to your looper. Simply eating a pretzel gives you this ability for about 30 seconds, but they don’t stack. So if you’re trying to complete the challenge to apply the effect three times, you should wait for each effect to wear off before applying it again.
The easiest way to find Zero Point Pretzels specifically is Buy them at Chrome Punk, a new pumpkin-headed NPC that appeared alongside the Fortnitemares update. We’ve mapped all the NPCs and listed them for you in our NPC locations guide. You can Find Chrome Punk in the Flutter Barn near the center of the map. He sells Zero Point Pretzels, so bring some gold and you’re set.
If someone preempts you and buys their stash, you must find candy buckets instead. Read more about this.
Fortnite candy locations
Fortnite candy is typically found outside of residences across the island every October. However, the current map has surprisingly few housing areas, making the candy buckets appear a little less frequently this season. Still, there are a few reliable places to go to collect candy when we need it.
The best place is by Willow’s Cabin on the west coast of the map. Just be ready for a boss fight – Willow seems to prefer tricks over treats. If your Battle Bus trajectory isn’t conducive to driving there, you can also reliably find some buckets of candy in The Joneses, particularly along the elevated rope bridge on the west side of the location. For a more central location, try the lonely blue house west of Herald’s Sanctum.
There are many houses in Greasy Grove, the only major residential area this season, and you’ll find candy there sporadically, but not as much as you might expect based on previous Fortnitemares events, and it seems to be moving with each turn. For reliability reasons, we prefer to drive to Willow’s house.
Types of candy and their uses
There are different types of candy in Fortnite, and each one offers a different benefit. There isn’t one candy you can eat that has a harmful effect, although some are better or worse depending on your situation and playstyle. Here is a list of all the Fortnite candies and what they do per item.
- Candy Corn – Gives 1 health per second up to 10 health
- Jelly Bean – Instantly gives 10 total HP for health (priority) and shields
- Zero Point Pretzel – Temporarily gives a “zero point” dash effect
- Hop Drop – Temporarily grants the ability to jump in low gravity and negates fall damage
- Peppermint – Grants temporary speed boost
- Thermal Toffee – Temporarily grants thermal vision
