The highly-anticipated Limited Time Mode for Avengers: Endgame has finally arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale, and we're here to make sure you're all caught up on how it works.
Released on April 25, the v8.50 update introduced the Endgame LTM in Fortnite BR, in celebration of the worldwide release of Avengers: Endgame in theaters on April 26.
The mode pits a team of heroes against the villain Thanos and his army of Chitauri, and all players respawn until one team manages to complete their designated objective and clinch the Victory Royale.
The goal for the heroes is to destroy all of the Chitauri Invaders and then Thanos himself, which is tricky because Thanos keeps respawning until every member of the Chitauri is defeated.
As for Team Thanos, their objective is to recover all six Infinity Stones hidden throughout the map, at which point the players on the heroes side will stop respawning and ultimately get defeated.
At the start of each match, the team of heroes is given access to four mythical items from the world of Avengers, each with its own damage profile and special abilities.
One of these four items is the iconic shield carried around by Captain America, and the following are its properties:
Facing the team of heroes is Thanos and his army of Chitauri, both of whom have their own special characteristics and potential to cause damage.
Hours after the Endgame LTM was released, Epic Games made a small change to Thanos' damage profile, giving it a slight increase.
As for the Chitauri, they are also given the ability to hover above the ground, and their weapon arsenal is nothing to be overlooked.
There are six Infinity Stones hidden throughout the map that Thanos and the Chitauri have to find in order to defeat the heroes.
In addition to being required to win the match, each of the Stones provide a boost to Thanos' power and the health points of each Chitauri.
