Leak reveals Infinity Gauntlet LTM & Thanos are returning to Fortnite

Published

on

Thanos, in preparation for the release of the new Avengers movie, seems to be returning to Fortnite. Can you handle the power of the Infinity Gauntlet?

Well, it seems that Marvel, Disney, and Epic Games are about to unveil the second coming of their partnership for the Avengers franchise. Thanos is returning to Fortnite in the (presumably) near future.

Though, he won’t be just wiping out half the lobby…he’s intent on being the last one left standing.

Thanos LTM Returning to Fortnite

So, how do we know that Thanos is returning to Fortnite? Leakers and data-miners, of course. What would we do without them?

This leak comes from the @SkinTrackerCom Twitter account.

In a tweet early in the v8.30, the data-miner uncovered a plethora of new kill feed messages. Most of these were not anything special, just new variations of old messages, but one caught our eye immediately.

On the second image, the second to last line reads “yielded to the <Sarcasm> POWER of Thanos.”

While it’s not absolute proof that the Thanos LTM is returning, the timing seems to be essentially confirm it. The kill feed line was added for v8.30 and EndGame arrives in theaters on April 26th…in 16 days. The perfect amount of time for a nice LTM run.

Thanos LTM Details

For those players that did not get a chance to play the original iteration of the Infinity Guantlet LTM, let’s do a quick rundown.

The game mode played essentially the same as normal Battle Royale with one key difference. The powerful Infinity Gauntlet arrived on the map shortly after players had landed.

You should have gone for the head…

The Gauntlet was visible to all players on the map and could be picked up after a short delay. Upon equipping the Gauntlet, the player would transform into the almighty Thanos.

The Gauntlet granted the player four unique abilities:

  • Ability 1 – A mighty punch that knocks enemies back and destroys structures.
  • Ability 2 – Thanos flies towards the ground, hitting an area for knockback and damage.
  •  Ability 3 – Harness the energy of the Power stone to fire a blast that deals damage over time.
  •  Ability 4 – A super-jump that can vault Thanos over all but the largest obstructions.

Thanos also had both a larger than life shield and health bar. His shields automatically regenerated while outside of combat. Thanos cannot build (or does not need such petty human devices) and takes no fall damage.

The game mode was played as Solos, but the interesting aspect was that players were essentially forced to work together to bring Thanos down.

Players would form ragtag teams of Avengers to defeat him…and then swiftly racing towards the dropping Infinity Guantlet to become Thanos.

Are you looking forward to the return of the most famous Fortnite LTM? Did you have a chance to play this mode the first time around?

Lazy Lake Floating Ring locations for Fortnite Week 3 challenges

How to collect floating rings at Lazy Lake for the Season 3 Week 3 challenges.

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges are here, which means we’re getting closer and closer to unlocking the second half of the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most of the challenges have been relatively easy this season, with only one weekly challenge requiring us to search in a particular area.

Last week we were looking around The Yacht. This week we’re venturing across the map over to Lazy Lake, where we’ll need to collect floating rings.

These four rings are scattered around Lazy Lake, making it difficult to complete this challenge in one shot – at least, if you’re doing it in a regular Battle Royale match.

As always, we recommend opting for Team Rumble. It makes things easier, and you may even be able to finish your eliminations challenge from last week if you haven’t already. Here’s a map of all of the Floating Ring locations at Lazy Lake:

The most obvious ring is located next to the gas station. You should be able to jump on an umbrella to grab it. After that, make your way to the intersection and look on top of the tree. The third ring is in the street at the entrance to Lazy, and the final ring is in between the towers of the No Sweat Insurance building.

Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows you exactly where you’ll need to visit.

You can take a look at the full list of challenges here, but the rest of them are easy enough to complete on your own. You may be sitting in the cornfield at Frenzy for a while, but that comes with the territory.

Lazy Lake fireworks location for Fortnite Captain America challenge

Published

on

When the Fortnite v13.20 patch released, Epic revealed that they’d be bringing a special hero to the Item Shop for the 4th of July. That hero was later revealed to be none other than Captain America – one of the core Avengers who we never saw during the initial Marvel crossover events.

Captain America is, reportedly, set to hit the Item Shop within the next rotation. He should be available when the Item Shop resets at 8 PM EST on July 2. We’re only hours away from having Cap in our locker, and he’ll probably be one of the most popular skins for the next week.

As you can see, there have already been plenty of official teasers for Captain America, but one of them went under the radar. When the Week 3 Challenges went live, Epic added a daily challenge that requires you to light fireworks around Lazy Lake. These fireworks explode to show the Captain America shield.

There are six firework locations surrounding this POI, but you only need five to complete the challenge. You can easily finish this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble once you know where to look. Here are all of the firework locations.

This challenge rewards players with 14,000 XP as it’s one of the golden daily challenges rather than a weekly challenge. That isn’t a ton of experience, but it’s a healthy reward for a challenge that will only take a few minuted to complete. Now, all that’s left is to see how the new Fortnite Captain America skin looks!

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.
