Fortnite has seen its fair share of Marvel in-game with LTM in-game where you can get Infinity Gauntlet, play as Thanos and get Captain America’s shield. Then there was also Deadpool Boss in Season 2, whose yacht is now in ruins. There is also a Captain America mask available at the product store. Now, there’s more good news on your way where you have a chance to get the Hulk smashers pickaxe and additional Hulkbuster design in Fortnite.
How do you make it happen in Fortnite?
The process of getting it can be a little long given that you won’t get it at Fortnite store. Confused? Well, that requires running the next beta of Marvel Avengers. In a recent announcement, Crystal Dynamics, the game developer revealed more details about the beta. You can access this beta in 3 stages. This may sound confusing, but take a look at the information below to help you better understand:
- August 7 – PlayStation Advantage Pre-Order Beta: As part of the PlayStation Advantage feature, those who pre-ordered Marvel’s Avengers will be the first to put their hands on the strongest heroes on earth this weekend from August 7 to 9. Preload: August 6.
- August 14 – Open Beta: The second Beta holiday will be open to the entire PS4 community as part of our partnership with the PlayStation feature. Preload: August 13.
- August 21: Open Beta: Just like its predecessor: The last weekend is also Open Beta for all PlayStation players. Preload: August 20.
Hope this clarifies things. Once the beta is reached, the game will feature HARM Challenge Rooms mode. Here you can test your fighting skills with different Avengers. To progress, you’ll need to complete 3 HARM challenges and once you do, you’ll get the Hulk Smashers Pickaxe and Hulkbuster in Fortnite.
To make sure all of this is running smoothly, you’ll need to link your Epic Games account and Square Enix account. You can do that here, too. Check if your PlayStation Live or Xbox Live account is linked to an Epic Games account.
Once you’re done and complete the HARM challenges, you’re ready to go! Also, if you can’t get it in the beta of Marvel Avengers, don’t worry. These will be available later in the item store. More details will be revealed soon!
