What we need from the Fortnite x Avengers Endgame event

Published

on

Thanos rocked the world in more ways than one last summer as the evil god appeared in Fortnite Battle Royale through a special LTM, and we have some ideas on what will be arriving on April 25 with update v8.50.

It was confirmed by Epic Games on April 22 that another Fortnite x Avengers event would be held, however, not much information has been released.

A couple of promotional pictures show off a female Fortnite character holding Captain America’s shield and the hand of the Fishstick skin holding up Thor’s Stormbreaker ax.

We have a couple ideas on what will be included in the event, and we are excited to see what Epic brings to the table.

What was the first Fortnite x Avengers event?

May 8, 2018 was a day where all Fortnite fans flooded into the Infinity Gauntlet LTM, where one player could wield the Infinity Gauntlet that Thanos uses in Infinity War.

Once a player wielded the Gauntlet, they would have access to four powerful abilities along with earning 500 health.

The Gauntlet was only featured in the LTM, which left the other modes in Fortnite free of the overpowered weapon.

Fortnite’s Infinity Gauntlet LTM was and is still considered one of Epic’s best LTM that has ever been in rotation.

Encore event

Why fix something that isn’t broken?

Epic Games has a track record of adding and replacing things in Fortnite that were beloved by fans, like Bounce Pads which were replaced by the annoying Ice Trap.

Competitive and casual fans across Fortnite all seem to agree that the Infinity Gauntlet LTM from 2018 was one of the best to ever be featured in the game, and an encore event would certainly be epic.

It’s not often that an event featuring Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet is around, and this might be the last time where we could see them, so why not bring it back?

Even our own editor said he would dust off his PlayStation 4 in order to hop back into the Infinity Gauntlet LTM!

Snap into action

Everybody remembers the infamous snap from 2018, which left Marvel fans on the edge of their seat.

One idea we have is that players will be tasked to securing each stone to complete the Infinity Gauntlet in a 50v50 LTM.

There will be six locations where players will have to secure each stone – Reality, soul, mind, space, time, and power.

Each stone could be secured like the Disco Domination LTM where players had to hold down the floor for about 30 seconds.

Once the team secures all six stones, the other team of 50 players will be immediately “snapped” and defeated.

We don’t know what will be included in update v8.50, but we will keep you updated once the patch goes live on April 25.

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!

Concepts

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.
