‘Fortnite’ X ‘Avengers’ Event Coming on Thursday: What Players Can Expect out of Endgame Collab

Epic Games just announced a new collaboration between Fortnite and the newest Avengers: Endgame movie. Early on Monday, players started to notice that an image of Fortnite character Brite Bomber holding Captain America’s shield was on the news page teasing an event for April 25. A tweet was later posted, which according to data miners is called “teaser1” which might mean there will be more teasers released over the next few days.

When Avengers: Infinity War was released in April 2018, Fortnite ran an exclusive limited time mode that put the villain Thanos into the game. Players could find and equip his  Infinity Gauntlet, transforming them into a giant purple killing machine. Thanos could leap into the air, use a powerful punch and shoot a massive laser beam. A lot of the same mechanics were applied to the Infinity Sword item later implemented in Season 7 of Fortnite .

What is the Fortnite x Avengers Mash-Up?

With as much hype as both these franchises bring, players are expecting a massive LTM or game event to celebrate. Here are some crazy ideas that could be exclusive to this collaboration:

  • Thanos Snaps- When a player picks up the Infinity Gauntlet weapon, he will have a one time nuke option called the “snap.” Half of the players on the map could disappear into dust or just become temporarily ethereal. This could be controversial but it would be very on brand for both franchises.

  • Fortnite Avengers- The first teaser features a Fortnite character with an Avengers item, which could mean that players will get to wield more than just the Infinity Gauntlet. There’s Hawkyeye’s bow, Black Widow’s tasers and Hulk’s fists that would all make amazing items for a battle royale.There might even be new skins.

  • Thanos’ Butt- The biggest meme leading up to Avengers: Endgame involves a ridiculous way to defeat Thanos. Ant-Man could sneak into the rectum of Thanos, growing inside his butthole. Now it’s unlikely that will actually happen in Fortnite , but it would be an interesting game to watch.

  • Rocket Raccoon- I just want a Rocket Raccoon skin in Fortnite and I feel like this might be my best option. Go Guardians!
