Thanos Could Be Returning in Fortnite Battle Royale, Here’s Why

Thanos Could Be Returning in Fortnite Battle Royale

Some Thanos game mode files have been added to the game with the v7.01 patch, which could be a sign of his return in Fortnite Battle Royale.

The LTM ‘Guantlet’ is a game mode where the Avengers: Infinity War character came to life inside Fortnite. In this game mode, players could become Thanos if they got the Gauntlet. When becoming Thanos, players had more power than usual, being able to use 3 of the infinity stones to eliminate the other 99 players.

The Fortnite Thanos LTM is very popular within the community, as it was the first special game mode.

A dataminer, who goes by the name of @FortTory, discovered that these 3 files were added in v7.01:

  • M_Jim_Chroma_Sphere_NoRefraction
  • P_Jim_Gauntlet_Pickup_Derez
  • P_Jim_Gauntlet_Pickup_Fading

Also, the dataminer @lucas7yoshi_ managed to extract a file called “Carmine_Disappear_01”. This featured the sound you can hear in the following video.

Another change was made in the official API of Fortnite, Epic Games changed the name of the image in the playlist. Although, a few minutes later that change was reversed.

Also, although this doesn’t provide us with any explicit information, the trailer for Avengers: End Game was released a few days ago. Therefore, there is the possibility that Epic Games are playing with us.

There is still no official information about whether this game mode will return to Fortnite, but if it does, it will receive a very warm welcoming from the entire community.
