It’s Been A Day, Thanos Already Nerfed In Fortnite

Apparently being a cosmic god of destruction has it’s limitations.

Dropping by FortniteBR subreddit, Epic Games employee JustMooney1 posted:

Heya folks,

We’ve just pushed a hotfix that will make the following changes to Thanos in the new Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup:

Shield cap decreased from 300 to 200.
Max Health increased from 700 to 800.
Laser damage vs. players decreased from 15 to 12.
We’re going to continue monitoring feedback.

Good luck and have fun!

So, seems fine to me?

The “Infinity Gauntlet” mode is available for free across all Battle Royale-friendly platforms (i.e. PS4, Xbox, PC, Mac, and iOS) after May 8th.
