Thanos’ unrelenting power has been toned down a bit in Fortnite.
Fortnite developer Epic Games has confirmed that it has reduced some of Thanos’ powers in a hotfix released overnight.
The update dropped Thanos’ shield capacity from 300 to 200, and reduced the damage of the laser beams fire from the Infinity Gauntlet from 15 to 12. In turn, Epic increased his max health from 700 to 800.
Epic Games community coordinator confirmed the changes on Reddit, and the response has been mixed.
The update comes one day after the Infinity Gauntlet Thanos event went live in Fortnite.
So far, the event’s reception has been very positive, but if you’ve yet to jump in yourself, be sure to consult our guide for how to get the Infinity Gauntlet and become Thanos.
When you’re done with that, you may want to start working on those Week 2 Challenges.
