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. 


Fortnite leaker suggests Epic working on vehicle mods & mounted car guns

After leaking information about possible weapon mods coming to Fortnite in the near future, notable leaker HYPEX has revealed Epic Games is also working on attachments for cars as well, including a mounted gun mod.

If you saw the leaks about the possible weapon attachments coming to Fortnite and thought that more features like that should come to the game, then you’re in luck.

According to notable Fortnite leaker HYPEX, Epic Games is currently working on car/vehicle attachments and mods, in addition to the weapon attachments that were leaked previously.

Details about the feature are extremely scarce, with HYPEX essentially only confirming that they are being worked on by the developer.

That being said, we do know what to expect in some regard.

HYPEX says that the attachments will be divvied up into tiers, with each one granting a different behavior on textures like grass, dirt, etc. What that means is exactly is unclear, however, it may allow each vehicles to handle better on different textures depending on what mod you have attached.

In addition, the leaker says there will be more traditional attachments that players will be able to place onto their cars, specifically mentioning “mounted guns” as an example.

All in all, this system sounds pretty similar to the weapon attachments system HYPEX previously leaked, which will allow players to mod their weapons with different abilities, but we don’t know if all the features from the weapon mods will carry over to the vehicle versions.

For instance, according to the original weapons leak, players will be able to drop and add mods at any time to their weapons, that they’ll be able to carry multiple mods at the same time, and that some weapons will have attachments which only work with that specific weapon.

Having those features on vehicle mods would be interesting but who knows if that’s actually what Epic has planned. Only time will tell when the devs will announce the weapon and car mods, and when they’ll be added to the game.
