Top 5 Marvel skins we want to see for the EndGame crossover

Published

on

The Fortnite X Avengers EndGame crossover will arrive later this week and we absolutely can’t wait. Here’s some of the skins and characters we want to see released alongside the event.

Marvel has a lot of super heroes due to the great legacy left behind by Stan Lee. Hundreds of characters dot the Marvel Universe, each with an unique set of abilities.

Everyone has their personal favorites based upon styles and personal relatability. Though we do not know if Epic Games will release skins of popular superheroes (and perhaps super-villains), we’ve got our list of skins we would love to see released with the EndGame crossover.

We’ve included both remaining Avengers as well as some of the Fallen. The heroes here aren’t in any particular order.

Iron Man – Tony Stark

What would an Avengers crossover be without the number one genius, playboy, billionaire, philanthropist?

Iron Man aka Tony Stark will play a pivotal role in the upcoming EndGame movie. Seeing him in-game in Fortnite would be totally surreal. Perhaps in an LTM, he could even have extended abilities like flying and advanced weaponry.

A nice, normal skin for all game modes could include two Styles. One with Iron Man’s suit helmet on and another without the helmet.

What if you could even switch between the Styles mid-game similar to how Tony uses nanomites to don his suit in Avengers: Infinity War? Just an idea…

Scarlet Witch – Wanda Maximoff

The only Avenger with the raw power to destroy an Infinity Stone, Scarlet Witch, would make an excellent addition to Fortnite. Who wouldn’t want to strike fear into their opponents with this potent warrior as their avatar?

The character’s signature style of reds and blacks is eye catching and vivid, similar to the rest of Fortnite. While some adjustments would need to made to fit into the art style of Fortnite, the overall imagery already fits the bill perfectly.

Perhaps, Epic Games could add dynamic effects to the skin by having the Witch’s arms start to glow red with her energy based upon kills in a match. Or simply add these effects onto her as part of Styles earned through challenges.

Loki – God of Mischief

You will never be a god! – via Marvel Studios

Loki may have died (maybe for real this time) during Avengers: Infinity War, but he is such an signature figure in the MCU that we think he still deserves a place in Fortnite.

Loki is neither villain nor hero. In truth, he is a trickster that simply plays to the winning side at any one moment. This is why it was so surprising to see him side with Thor against Thanos even though it meant his certain death.

The flashy gold and green bezels of his uniform and robes are instantly recognizable. A Fortnite skin for him could include two Styles, similar to Iron Man, with an helmet on and off approach. His helmet being the one with the horns, of course. How else will you make these pathetic mortals bow before your might?

Thor – God of Thunder

I need a horse! – via Marvel Studios

Thor has been around about as long as Iron Man at this point. He is a fully developed character with both humorous and serious sides. And above all, he is worthy.

Thor recently obtained the Stormbreaker axe and nearly defeated Thanos through its might. If he’d gone for the head that is…

Nevertheless, Thor would make an awesome addition to the Fortnite universe. Imagine charging into the battle with his red cape and lightning armor. The red and blue would definitely fit into the colorful Fortnite art style.

Epic, if they were so inclined, could develop Styles based upon his differing appearances in the movies. Thor used to be known for luscious flowing locks, but suffered a major loss to his hair care routine on a junker planet in the recent past.

Captain Marvel – Carol Danvers

Towards the very end of the recent Captain Marvel movie, Carol Danvers discovers and unlocks her fully fledged powers. In this moment, she becomes Captain Marvel. That’s the hero we want to play as in Fortnite. Powerful, defiant, and ready to stand against the tide.

It wouldn’t be right to have other heroes added to the game without adding the strongest of them all. Captain Marvel may be the newest addition to the MCU, but she can kick the crap out of any other hero without breaking a sweat.

The style we would like to see in a Fortnite skin would be her fully ascended form. Glowing aura around her uniform and eyes filled with the power coursing through her veins.

We know that the suit she wears can be dynamically calibrated to change colors. This sounds like a perfect opportunity for some extra Styles. Not everyone’s Captain Marvel has to fly American colors. Perhaps yours will don the colors of Finland, Japan, China, or South Africa.

Which of your favorite MCU characters would you like to see in Fortnite as skins or characters of an LTM? Tell us your picks in the comments below. We might even put up a poll on the topic.

Epic Games has dropped patch v15.40 in Fortnite and with it comes a boat load of leaked skins as well as cosmetics.

The latest update brought back one of the game’s older weapons, which had been vaulted for some time, and that’s the Flint Knock pistol.

As the pirate theme died long ago in Chapter 2, the weapon hasn’t been around for much of Chapter 2 – but now it’s back in the loot pool.

As usual, following an update, leakers have been hard at work looking around for any potential teasers for upcoming content. To that point, leaked skins and cosmetics have emerged.

New Bundles

Before we dive into the individual skins and how they’re going to look in Fortnite, it’s worth noting VastBlast discovered four new bundles are included.

These can be seen below – coming with individual pickaxes, back blings, and more.

On top of that, ShiinaBR revealed how some of the new skins shape up in-game.

Last but not least is the SypherPK Locker Bundle, found by iFireMonkey.

Fortnite v15.40 leaked cosmetics

Here’s the list of new cosmetics leaked, courtesy of HYPEX – one of the game’s most accurate leakers.

As you can see, a number of weapon wraps and other cosmetics are in the works.

Now, it’s only a matter of time before they’re added to the battle royale experience. Which one do you have eyes for? Let us know by tweeting us @FortniteINTEL on Twitter.

Fortnite v15.40 early patch notes: Flint Knock returns, LTMs & more

The “most amazing” Fortnite patch ever has been revealed, and here’s everything that’s included.

Fortnite gameplay

Epic Games has confirmed a few key details on Fortnite’s v15.40 update. From all the new content to an exact release time, here’s everything there is to know.

Another week brings us another Fortnite update. Fresh content is always right around the corner in Epic’s battle royale and this latest batch has fans eager to jump back in.

Not only are popular limited time modes back in full force, but a fan favorite weapon is also being unvaulted. Moreover, the game should be smoother than ever thanks to the latest wave of bug fixes.

The February 16 update is finally here but before we get there, here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s 15.40 patch.

Fortnite v15.40 patch downtime

No different from previous weeks, Epic Games has confirmed the exact timing for the next update. Fortnite’s v15.40 patch will be deployed on Tuesday, February 16. Downtime is scheduled to begin at roughly 4AM ET | 10 AM BST | 9 AM UTC.

While the new update brings new content, it will also remove various “unreleased assets are props,” Epic added. This means downtime could be a little longer than usual as the developers overhaul bigger chunks of the game.

However, as a result of these changes, the overall file size of Fortnite should be reduced moving forward.

Fortnite v15.40 patch notes

Unvaulted weapon

Epic had teased the return of a popular item. “Blast back with an unvaulted favorite,” they shared in a February 15 tweet.

‘Blast’ points towards something explosive on the way. From the Quad Launcher to Dynamite, there are plenty of explosive options that have been vaulted away for a number of months.

On February 16, once the dust settled on the update, it was revealed that the Flint Knock Pistol was the one returning to battle.

Portals added

Fortnite leakers have reported that two Hunter portals have been added to the game, potentially lining up two new crossovers for Season 5.

We’ve already seen The Mandalorian, God of War, Halo and others appear during the course of the current season – and ShiinaBR has revealed two more encrypted skins are on the way, too.

Limited Time Modes: Air Royale & Floor is Lava

With Fortnite’s 15.40 update, two LTMs are making a return. Both Air Royale and Floor is Lava will be back for everyone to enjoy.

The first was an extremely popular mode upon release in April 2019. Air Royale loads all players into X4 Stormwing’s until there’s just one survivor left.

Meanwhile, Floor is Lava is the polar opposite. Rather than soaring through the skies, players begin on the ground and have to climb their way up to avoid deadly lava.

Fortnite v15.40 bug fixes

Outside of the new content, Fortnite’s latest patch comes with a number of bug fixes as well. The 15.40 update is expected to fix issues across not only the battle royale, but Save The World and Creative modes too.

Below is a full list of every fix that is expected to go live with the latest Fortnite patch.

General

  • Total Bars appearing as “0” in a match.
  • Purple XP Coins disappearing when driven through (without granting XP).
  • Matchmaking doesn’t start if unreadied player leaves early.

Creative Mode

  • Phone Booths do not respect island settings when players change Outfits.

Save the World

  • Mythic Lead Survivor portraits appear only as silhouettes.
  • Locating a Durrr Burger not counting towards the “Locating: Burger Break!” Ventures quest.

That’s everything there is to know about Fortnite’s 15.40 update for the time being. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as further information becomes available.

Mando Bounty LTM Fortnite

Epic Games have rolled out their v15.30 update for Fortnite, adding three new exotic weapons to the battle royale as well as a new LTM, and a whole host of new cosmetics.

One thing that has always set Fortnite apart from it’s battle royale rivals are the regular updates that Epic Games roll out. They’ve slowed a bit since the move to Fortnite Chapter 2, but the updates are still welcomed.

On February 2nd, the devs rolled out another decently sized update, adding further to the Hunter’s theme has encapsulated Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

That includes three new weapons, a Mando’s Bounty LTM, as well as a decent number of bug fixes too. So, without any further ado, let’s get into the changes.

New weapons: Burst Quad Launcher, Frozen & Chug Cannon

Keeping with the growing number of exotic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3, Epic Games have added three new weapons – the Burst Quad Launcher, Frozen SMG & Chug Cannon.

Starting with the latter there, as the name suggests, the Chug Cannon works like the Bandage Bazooka where teammates can be healed by the weapon.

The Frozen and Burst Quad Launcher are heavy hitters though. The pair of them will deal some nice damage, 35 and 42 respectively, while the Frozen has an alright reload time of just a shade over two seconds.

Mando’s Bounty LTM

The Mandalorian has also recieved some love in this update. Sadly, the previously rumored cosmetics have not been released, but he has got his own limited-time mode.

“The best hunter in the galaxy wants to prove himself—against you. Challenge other players to see who can score credits the fastest,” the description reads. Take out bounty targets for extra credits and eliminate specially-marked hunters for high-tier loot.

“When the Mandalorian enters the match, he will hunt down the player with the most credits. You can get to the top but can you stay there?”

Fortnite v15.30 bug fixes

Finally, the bug fixes. These can be found on Epic’s Trello board before the update goes live, so we can always get a sense of whats being fixed.

This update has a decent amount of changes for each mode for battle royale, Save the World, and Creative – including the return OG Bear vehicles.

Here is the full list of bug fixes coming in v15.30:

General

  • Difficulty editing Banner with a controller.
