      • This chance is increased for patrolling enemies and the packs of enemies found scattered throughout the world.
    • Enemies can drop building materials, crafting ingredients, and ammunition.

      • The tier of crafting ingredients increases with Mission Difficulty, as does the chance of finding rare crafting ingredients like Active Powercells.
    • Mini-Bosses drop a new item type called a Cache.
      • Schematic Caches come in three rarities (Rare, Epic, Legendary) and contain a single ranged or melee weapon schematic. The likelihood of getting an Epic or Legendary cache increases at higher mission difficulties.
      • Evolution Material Caches contain storm evolution materials (Pure Drop of Rain, Storm Shard, etc). These scale up with the difficulty of the mission.
      • A Mini-Boss will drop one cache (of the same type) for every player who participated in the elimination (dealt damage to the boss, or was close to it when it was eliminated).
    • Certain high-rarity treasure chests found in the world can also drop Caches.
    • Caches are opened at the end of the mission.
  • Survivor health has been increased by 40% to allow more time for players to rescue them from tough situations.

    • Upgrade 1 now allows the Teleporter to transport friendly projectiles!
      • Projectiles will exit from the Teleporter based on the direction you set when you place it.

    • Upgrade 3 now reduces the arm time of the Teleporter when it is placed to 1.5 seconds.
    • Upgrade 4 now increases the range of the Teleporter by 10 tiles.
    • Upgrade 5 now allows Enemy projectiles to go through the Teleporter!

      • Recharge time reduced from 240 seconds to 150 seconds.
      • Default duration reduced to 20 seconds.

  • The default action of keyboard button ‘B’ is now Emote, with keyboard button ‘V’ bound to bring up Team Chat. You can now cycle between Team Chat, Emotes, and Notes, regardless of which button you pushed to summon the picker.
    • (PS4: L1/R1, XB1: LB/RB, PC: Mouse Wheel)
Bug Fixes
  • Corrected an issue which was causing Corn to be unsearchable. It is once again searchable, and will drop the Bacon you crave .

This collaboration started as a simple phone conversation between Epic and Marvel over a mutual appreciation for Fortnite and Avengers. We worked closely over the following weeks to bring these two worlds together and landed on the Limited Time Mashup, Infinity Gauntlet. When we saw the movie last weekend, which was incredible, we were even more excited.

PERFORMANCE

We're working to minimize the impact of this type of optimization in future releases. - Developer Comment

Personally don't think this game is great at all. Don't see all the hype over this game. The only argument I would make in defense of this game is that PUBG isn't really playable on Xbox right now, so this is the next best Battle Royale alternative, however even then I personally wouldn't play this game. Guess it's just not my cup of tea but I never have despised such a massively popular game to a level like this.

That is very true, I haven't put any glitches because one of the glitches got me reset and I don't wanna give something out bad to the community.

I'm usually careful with them anyway, but I'll be looking forward to you sharing them.

It has been suggested numerous times and shot down each time. If the staff feel the need to add it they will. However I don't think this game brings enough attention to deserve its own forum still.

I’d love to make a little section on this thread, I was afraid of people getting account bans or suspension, but when I get home, I guess i’ll post 1 or 2 glitches for now on here because I know of some but I actually got my account reset from doing glitches so you guys have to be safe with it.
