A Race to the Gauntlet

As of this morning, Thanos is ruling one more Universe. The Mad Titan now has his own mode in the free-to-play game, Fortnite: Battle Royale. Yesterday, the game’s developer Epic Games announced the epic cross-over. Now, the Infinity Gauntlet has actually been added to the game! But as anyone who’s played the game knows, each match features around 100 players. How are you going to be able to beat all of those other players to the most sought after weapon in the Virtual World? By following a few simple tricks!

The folks over at GameSpot created a nifty video explaining the best way to get the Infinity Gauntlet.

So the basic idea is: float around the circled area until you see the “rainbow explosion” in the sky. Follow it down and you’ll find yourself right in front of the Infinity Gauntlet. As soon as the player equips it they will launch into the air. Suddenly soaring through the skies with speed and ferocity.

Many fans were wondering just what the extent of the powers of the Gauntlet were going to be. Well, wielding all the power and might of Thanos is undeniably awesome. But let’s get this out of the way.

No, you can’t snap other players out of existence.

But the player will be able to punch them out of existence. Thanos can deliver crunching punches from the ground and air. He’s also capable of jumping long distances and shoots a semi-effective laser beam. The greatest novelty of all is actually just flying around the map in a manner that doesn’t really reflect Thanos’ own power. However, everyone knew this wasn’t going to be a perfect adaptation.

The “Infinity Gauntlet” mode is completely free but only available for a limited time. What are you waiting for?!
