There Was a Bug in Fortnite That Allowed Players To Use Weapons and Build as Thanos

There appears to have been a game-changing glitch in the Fortnite x Avengers Limited Time Mode of the popular Fortnite: Battle Royale video game.

This glitch allowed players to use weapons and build structures while playing as Thanos, the all-powerful villain character that is the focus of this mode.


As the name would suggest, the Fortnite x Avengers LTM was a mashup between the Battle Royale game and the recently released Avengers: Infinity War film.

In this LTM, players landed 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 was able to find and equip the Gauntlet turns into Thanos and gained several powers and an advantage against the remaining players on the map.


In order to balance out these powerful attacks and advantages, players were not able to use regular weapons or build structures while playing as Thanos.

However, Reddit user 'FineNova' had discovered a bug in the game that allowed players to do just those very things, as seen in the video he posted on the website.

Thanos bug, i was able to build and use weapons lol. Yes. I lost. feelsbad from r/FortNiteBR



It was not clear when and how often this glitch happens, but one telling sign that something was off was when the player equipped the Infinity Gauntlet, and the usual animation of transforming into Thanos high in the sky did not occur.

With this Fortnite x Avengers LTM went offline with the release of the v4.2 update, it is a shame that this glitch came into the center of attention so late in the life-span of the LTM.
