If you’ve never seen Thanos riding a rocket while dancing in Fortnite Battle Royale, can you really say that you’ve lived a full and happy life?

Thanos, the main villain in Marvel’s new Avengers Infinity War film, is currently roaming the streets of Fortnite Battle Royale as part of the “Infinity Gauntlet” limited time mode.

Basically, players search for Thanos’ Gauntlet around the map and once they find it they can turn into the all-powerful Titan and use a number of special abilities.

These include a “mighty punch”, flying towards the ground, hitting an area for knockback and damage, firing a blast that deals damage over time and a “super-jump that can vault Thanos over all but the largest obstructions”.

But nothing comes close to his Rocket Riding abilities, as Reddit user severed-identity displayed in a hilarious clip on May 10th when Thanos found himself on a missile mid-dive.

Originally shared on gfycat by @itsmeurboyblue, the clip only gets better when the player takes the opportunity to lay down some nifty dance moves.

This is just one of many hilarious moments that have occurred since Thanos’ introduction to the game.

The Infinity Gauntlet mode has, without a doubt, provided some of the most entertaining Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay in recent memories and will be sadly missed when it comes to an end.

Epic Games definitely have a lot to live up to with future Limited Time Modes.

Participants could only drop into 10 different matches for their total score.

The Rules for Streamer Bowl II were fairly straightforward if you’ve watched or participated in any competitive Fortnite events before. Players had 10 matches to drop into Solos games and attempt to increase their score as much as possible.

Five points were awarded per Victory Royale, with three for reaching the top two and one point from there. Kills also were worth a point each, which was of course the main focus for all of our top 10 finishers.
