The Fortnite Avengers Endgame LTM event has just launched for all Battle Royale players, to mark Avengers: Endgame releasing worldwide. The mode brings back Thanos (read on for details on how to become Thanos in Fortnite), since we last saw him in Battle Royale for the release of Avengers: Infinity War last year. In this Fortnite Avengers Endgame guide, we'll be walking you through all the Infinity Stone locations, as well as a list of Mythic Avengers items, like Thor's Stormbreaker, Hawkeye's bow, Captain America's shield, and Iron Man's Repulsors, so you can get to grips with the new mode as quickly as possible.
How to Find Infinity Stones in Fortnite Endgame
With the team of villains, you'll want to find the six Infinity Stones as quickly as you possibly can. However, finding the Infinity Stones is slightly more complicated than just heading to a specific location on the map.
At the beginning of an Endgame match of Fortnite, there will be zero Infinity Stones on the map. Then, you'll receive a notification on your screen that an Infinity Stone is about to land on the map. There'll now be a marker on your HUD and your map, letting you know where the Infinity Stone will be landing. The first player to reach the location on your team can search the stone, and claim it for themselves.
Infinity Stones will begin descending on the Endgame map, at roughly 60 second intervals. Your job is to head to the location, defend your territory until the Infinity Stone arrives, and then claim it. If your team can claim all six Infinity Stones, you'll win the game.
Below, we'll break down the six different Infinity Stones. Remember that these stones can descend in a random order on the Fortnite map.
- Reality Stone - Health and shield doubled.
- Soul Stone - Grants Thanos shields only.
- Mind Stone - Jump height doubled.
- Space Stone - Ground Pound AoE attack damage tripled.
- Time Stone - Triples damage for each hit.
- Power Stone - Laser damage increased by six times.
Fortnite Endgame LTM Explained
The Fortnite Endgame event has been introduced to the game through patch v8.50. Simply download the new 1GB update for the game on any platform, be it Switch, PC, PS4, or Xbox One, and you're ready to get going.
In the Endgame LTM, there are two teams. One team is the heroes, who are working to stop the enemy team from acquiring all six Infinity Stones. At the start of the game, the team of heroes is each given a treasure map, which leads to a Mythic Avengers item somewhere on the map (more on that later).

As for the team of villains, they all start off as Chitauri, an evil alien race in the Marvel universe. There are six Infinity Stones placed around the Battle Royale map, and the first player on the villain team to find a stone shall become Thanos. This team's goal is to acquire all the Infinity Stones, to stop the hero team from spawning, and win the game.
How to Find Avengers Gear in Fortnite
As we mentioned previously, the team of heroes are each given a treasure map at the start of the Endgame LTM. You'll need to follow this treasure map as quickly as you can, if you want to get your hands on Captain's America's shield, Hawkeye's bow, Thor's Stormbreaker, or Iron Man's gauntlets.
You spawn in teams of four in the Endgame mode for Fortnite. Therefore each person in your squad is guaranteed to get one of the Avengers items. Simply equip the treasure map that you're given at the start of the match, and follow it to the destination that the red line points to. Once there, you can dig up the treasure using your pickaxe, and claim the items for yourself. Just below, we'll list out the Avenger's items.
- Captain America's Shield - You can rebound the shield off surfaces, using it as a boomerang to damage enemies.
- Hawkeye's Bow - The bow deals high explosive damage to anyone caught in its radius.
- Iron Man's Repulsors - You can use the Repulsors to hover and boost yourself into the air.
- Thor's Stormbreaker - You can swing this huge axe around for close quarters damage.
