Here's What Thanos Gameplay Looks Like in the Avengers Fortnite Event

It takes more than a few true believers to take down Thanos in Fortnite.

Fortnite's had a lot of weird guests drop by recently. The comet that hovered for a time before finally crashing into Dusty Divot as a meteorite was the first big howdy-doo for Epic's battle royale shooter, but the game's latest visitor, Thanos of the Marvel Universe, makes apocalyptic space rocks look like rock candy. We've got the video of Thanos wreaking havoc in Fortnite to prove it.

The Mad Titan is visiting Fortnite as part of a crossover event in honor of Avengers: Infinity War smoking the box office. If you grab the Infinity Gauntlet in-game, you get to putter around as Marvel's genocidal mutation of Grape Ape. Once the Gauntlet is yours, you can leap high into the air (Hulk-style), deliver a bone-rattling ground-punch, power punch through structures, shoot a devastating laser, and heal thyself. If you're looking to wreck all life in your path, the Infinity Gauntlet is pretty much the way to do it. Take a look at Thanos in action, and despair.

How exciting. Problem is, other players tend to forget their petty struggles against one another when a death-god is on a power trip. If you capture the Gauntlet, you can expect to be hounded and hunted down until you're a purple paste. The Gauntlet can take care of one gnat, sure, but what about 20 well-organized fighters? What about 100?

Whether you aspire to destroy everyone who comes at you, or whether you want to do your bit to keep the world safe from Thanos' crazy aspirations, our Fortnite Avengers Infinity War Crossover Event guide will prove invaluable. It's just part of our extensive and generous Fortnite guide service.
