Fortnite: The Avengers Endgame Update

Let’s first be clear before we discuss the update that there are no Avengers: Endgame spoilers in this article, so you are safe to continue reading. But do make sure to watch it! In a recent update, Epic Games decided to add a new and epic Limited Time Mode called ”Endgame”. How could they not add it when the entire world is discussing the movie? Back when they added the Infinity War LTM in Fortnite, everyone enjoyed becoming Thanos and using the Infinity Gauntlet.

Now they added an even better mode with much more features to offer. In this mode, Thanos and his Chitauri have invaded the Fortnite world in search for the 6 Infinity Stones. You can either fight as Thanos or be on the good side and wield the Avengers’ items in order to stop him. Both teams get to respawn if eliminated until one side accomplishes their goals. So if you are on the Hero team that’s trying to stop Thanos then you will keep respawning until the enemy finds all six stones.

As the Hero team, you will start with a map that leads you to the Avengers items so you will find the power to stand up against Thanos and his minions. Your goal is to defeat Thanos and his Chitauri army. On the other hand, if you happen to be on Thanos’ side then your goal is to find all the 6 stones. Your team will have a powerful laser rifle, anti-structure grenade, and a jetpack which allows you to jump high in the air. But which player gets to be Thanos? This is decided by who, from among the Chitauri players, gets to recover an Infinity Stone first. Once that player recovers one, he then transforms into the mighty Thanos.

Once Thanos comes along, he will be extremely powerful, wielding a destructive punch, a damaging beam attack, and the ability to jump so high into the air and then smashing the ground and anyone or anything within his vicinity. As more Infinity Stones are collected, Thanos’ power increases and the Chitauri’s health increases.

For example, with the Reality Stone, Health and Shields double; With the Mind Stone, the height of his jump doubles; With the Space Stone, his Ground Pound size triples and damage multiplies by 6; And with the Power Stone, his Laser damage multiplies by 6. These are just some examples of what each stone can do. In the chance that Thanos is killed during the game, another Chitauri gets to become Thanos after a while. For Thanos and his team to win, they need to find all six Infinity Stones which will prevent the other team from respawning after death.
