The new Fortnite and Avengers crossover has brought a lot of hype around the game and a lot of people are loving it. The new Infinity Gauntlet mode is a solo mode where the storm has already shrunk right as the battle bus lifts off.
The Infinity Gauntlet comes down from the atmosphere as a meteor and spawns in a random spot.
The Infinity Gauntlet allows players to be Thanos. He will spawn in with 800 Health and 200 Shield. Thanos has three special abilities that players can use to get eliminations.
His primary attack is a might punch that knocks enemies back and destroys structures.
His secondary attack Harnesses the energy of the Power stone to fire a blast that does damage over time.
His third attack is a super jump that can vault Thanos over all but the largest structures.
If Thanos is killed, players can pick up the Gauntlet for themselves and be Thanos with full health and shield.
Many people think this mode is great for the game and has it going in the right direction for the future.
Regis Jesuit Freshman Brady Manzanares said, “This is the most unique game mode Fortnite has made and it is very exciting.” The fact that Marvel reached out to Epic Games is huge because more big companies are starting to recognize what an excellent game Fornite really is.
The first Fortnite crossover has gone very well and there will hopefully be many more fun crossovers to come in the future.
