The Fortnite/Avengers: Endgame crossover event is now live, and it includes a new limited-time mode called Endgame. In Endgame, one team plays on the side of the heroes, with access to weapons like Iron Man’s gauntlets, Captain America’s shield, Thor’s Stormbreaker axe, and even Hawkeye’s bow. The other team, meanwhile, controls the Mad Titan Thanos and his Chitauri Army.
The hero team’s goal in Endgame is to stop Thanos from collecting the six Infinity Stones, whereas Thanos and the Chitauri have to collect all six Infinity Stones to win the match. This means that the hero team needs to do their best to block Infinity Stones from Thanos, whereas the enemy team needs to do everything they can to collect them all with limited lives at their disposal.
As the match progresses, one Infinity Stone after another will drop on the Fortnite battle royale map. When an Infinity Stone lands, it will be marked on the compass at the top of the screen, as is Thanos’s location. When an Infinity Stone lands, Thanos simply needs to reach it to collect it and add it to his gauntlet.
Just like the Infinity Stones in Avengers: Endgame and the Marvel comic books have specific powers, the Infinity Stones in Fortnite all have their own unique abilities as well. Each Infinity Stone will grant Thanos a unique power, listed here:
Collecting Infinity Stones will not only help Fortnite players win in the Endgame limited-time mode, but it will also help them complete certain challenges. In fact, there is an Endgame challenge specifically to collect Infinity Stones, and if players are able to complete it and at least nine other challenges, they will unlock the Quinjet Glider.
Fortnite is out now in early access for Android, iOS, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
