A Glitch Involving the Port-a-Fort Can Help Stop Thanos in Fortnite

The new Limited Time Mode in Fortnite has become a sensation amongst the game’s vast player-base.

Called Fortnite x Avengers, the new mode is a mashup of the popular Battle Royale game and the recently released Marvel film Avengers: Infinity War.

In this new LTM, players land on the Fortnite map and search for the Infinity Gauntlet, which is the all-powerful weapon wielded by Thanos, the main villain in Infinity War.

Whoever is able to find and equip the Gauntlet turns into Thanos and gains several powers and an advantage against the remaining players on the map.

As Thanos, players can dominate in Fortnite thanks to a flurry of powerful attack moves and an expanded health and shield that can make him difficult to eliminate.

However, it appears that there is a glitch in the game involving the Port-a-Fort item that can make defeating the villain a much easier task.

YouTube streamer Julie ‘ONE_shot_GURL’ has uploaded a clip in which she throws a Port-a-Fort at Thanos and it essentially freezes him midair, allowing her to shoot him down as he helplessly floats about the metal fort.

It is not yet clear whether this glitch occurs everytime a Port-a-Fort is thrown at Thanos, but perhaps the item is a specific weakness to the all-powerful villain.

Another video has surfaced, thanks to Reddit user ‘shujin,’ that shows a player trying to destroy a metal fort with Thanos but badly failing.

Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
