The release of Fortnite‘s 4.1 update signals the start of the limited-time mashup event with Avengers: Infinity War.
Following the update, players on all platforms will be able to take part in the “Limited-Time Mashup: Infinity Gauntlet” game mode. In this new game mode, a meteor will crash to the ground containing the Infinity Gauntlet shortly after the match begins. When a player equips the gauntlet they will transform into Thanos and gain four new abilities. Upon death, the player who was Thanos will drop the gauntlet, allowing another player to pick it up.
The update also fixes a number of bugs, lowers the volume of Hop Rocks and the Valor Glider, and improves overall frame rate when lots of characters are on screen.
Finally, Save the World players get the HackSAW weapon. This new weapon will be available in the Weekly Store tomorrow and is a light machine gun variant with a moderate rate of fire, mild recoil, a long reload time, and excellent ammo efficiency.
