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.
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.
