Fortnite Thanos Mode: How To Get The Infinity Gauntlet

Avengers: Infinity War's Thanos is now available in Fortnite: Battle Royale on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile--here's how to play as him. Don't worry, no spoilers for the new movie.

Fortnite's Thanos crossover event mode, Infinity Gauntlet, is now live, giving you the chance to play as the Avengers: Infinity War villain himself. He comes as part of update 4.1, which is live on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile now.

In each match of the limited-time Thanos mode, one lucky player will get to use the villain's powerful Infinity Gauntlet. You'll get to play as Thanos until you either win or die, and he's very strong. He has 700 health and 300 shields, and can jump high into the air after a short power-up time. [Update: He's already been slightly nerfed.] But how do you get to play as the Mad Titan?

There's no surefire way to get the Infinity Gauntlet every time, but there are a few things you can do to improve your chances. Stay on the Battle Bus until you reach the edge of the circle--in which the Gauntlet will spawn after approximately two minutes--then fly toward the middle of that circle. You want to stay airborne for as long as possible, but below other players vying for prime position.

You'll hear a sonic boom to signal the Gauntlet's spawning; it arrives by way of a comet crash. If you stayed around the center of the circle you should be in a decent spot to get to the device, no matter where it spawns. Aim ahead of the comet and try to get to the Gauntlet as quickly as possible. Players are notified on the compass of where the Thanos player is at all times, making them a big target.

If you miss out though, don't worry: you can still play as the villain later in the round. If Thanos dies, he'll drop the Gauntlet, and whoever gets to it first can take over evil responsibilities for the remainder of the match. For more on the limited-time event, check out some of our Fortnite: Battle Royale Thanos gameplay.

I prefer to let the others have a go at it at first. The first thanos will hardly ever win the whole match. I usually stalk him after the third thanos picks up the gauntlet until he's down to 300 ish hp/shield combined. That's usually enough to take him down without him killing you if you have full shield and life and get the jump on him. The players have usually dwindled enough by this time where you shouldn't get caught in a multiperson fight as thanos cause he dies really quickly in hectic firefights.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 2o hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do•► http://www.Bay30.com

Thanos gets one, and everybody else has to have one too? I'd rather have an Infinity Laser Gun

@c4rbs: Nothing really strange about it. Its basicially a big game of Tag and not to be taken seriously.
