The Avengers: Endgame crossover event is officially live in Fortnite Battle Royale, with a new limited-time mode (LTM) where players can become their favorite superheros – and there’s a new set of challenges too.

The new set of Endgame challenges can only be completed in the specific LTM, as they require you to use the various new mythic weapons, like Thor’s Stormbreaker hammer or Iron Man’s repulsors.

There’s a total of twelve challenges, a mix of dealing damage, getting eliminations, winning matches and collecting infinity stones.

The infinity stones are the main focus of the new game mode, as Thanos and his army of Chitauri attempt to find all six, while the heroes attempt to stop him.

Thankfully, there are respawns available in this mode, which should also make completing these challenges a bit easier, or at least faster. You can see the full list of challenges below, courtesy of @FNBRHQ.

How to complete Endgame LTM challenges

A few of these tasks are very straightforward (play seven matches, win matches etc.), but there are some others which will require a bit more effort.

To complete the ‘deal damage’ challenges, you will of course need to acquire the weapons mentioned in the challenge. If you are on the hero team, you will be a equipped with a ‘treasure map’ that leads you directly to a mythic Avengers item.

Each of these items has an ability, with Captain America’s shield for example able to be thrown and knock down opponents, as shown in the trailer.

On the other side of the things, are Thanos and his Chitauri army, whose objective is to find all six infinity stones. That means you will need to be on the bad guy’s side to complete the find three infinity stone challenge.

According to the leaked challenges, there isn’t actually a task to deal damage as Thanos, rather only to win a match on his side (even when playing as Chitauri).

You do however have to deal damage while using the Chitauri’s jetpack. If Thanos is eliminated, a random Chitauri will be chosen to take his place.

In summary, there is nothing too complex about the Endgame LTM challenges, but they will take some time to get through, as you need to get the opportunity to use each mythic Avengers item, and play on both teams, to complete them all.

Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
